now I once started with this blog (!) I'd like to show you more pictures of my home-made 'fabric-and-yarn' creations, like these fabric coated foamblockpuzzles:

 In Fremantle, Western Australia, where I was on a month's holiday in November / December 2009, I bought the Aboriginal print fabric, used in this sweet souvenir puzzle:


I made quite some puzzles and baby playing balls, not only for new borns or youngsters, but also for the elderly, suffering from dementia, Alzheimer's Disease. These lightweight, easy-to-handle 'toys' appeared to bring (in some cases almost therapeutic) joy to those who are physically and /or mentally limited or disabled, no matter what age.  I made them in different sizes, using fabric in all kinds of prints, colours, subjects / themes, hiding a little tinkling bell in it. Some examples:


Knitted baby caps for India:

For one of my (five!) sisters, an art ball, white to her wish:

A so-called blockbook, to keep and transport my patchwork fabric pieces safe and neat:

Memo board:
