Sunburst Granny Square Tutorial

Just a quick reminder that this blog is now closed and I have started a new blog called Nittybits. I dedicated one of my first posts to the very beloved Sunburst Granny Square Blanket I made a while back. You can find information about the pattern and joining of the squares here.

The Big Goodbye: Making a new start

First of all: happy new year everyone!!! 2013 is going to bring a wedding, and hopefully more wisdom, more love, more colour and more joy. And with that, it is time for some change...

One of the things I gave a lot of thought to this past year was this blog. For seven years I've been writing about my life, and oh how it has changed. When I started this blog I was a student, still living with her parents, dreaming of writing short stories and books. 'The Writing Tree' was meant to be a writing diary, containing inspiration for stories and funny anecdotes about my life. Then I graduated, got a job, lost the energy and time to write, and eventually got a new hobby: crafting. I started to write in English so I would be able to communicate with more people in Blogland, I taught myself to crochet, knit, sew and carving out stamps, photography became a big part of my life and graphic, interior and product design became new passions.

New year, new start, new blog
I've been wanting to make a fresh start for some time now, which is exciting, refreshing, exhilarating... and scary as hell!!! This blog contains seven years of stories, videos, photographs, comments, followers. Seven years of my life!!

But the time is right, and I am starting a new blog. To all of you who have been visiting this blog over the years: thank you for all the sweet comments and e-mails!!! And to all 98 of you (!) who are following this blog: from now on you can find me here:

Hope to see you there!! I'd love to hear what you think about my new blog :)
