Pieter & Annuska

We live on the country side in Sweden and we share with you the life we live. Annuska never has a dull moment and is always full of ideas that Pieter often has to participate in. With gardening, sailing, knitting, weaving, our labrador Milou, work and beekeeping, Annuska is a very busy bee. Pieter cannot sit still either. The garage is his domain. Here he works on all kind of projects, wether or not initiated by Annuska. He is very busy with renovating the boat we have as well. So join us in our adventures. Have fun reading. Read about us on our homepage as well.

The Office

The things I use for sewing



Pieter and I have shared an office for some time now and it did work until he changed jobs. 

Normally he is traveling a lot and in this time with Covid things have changed. 

Traveling is not that easy anymore. 


Puzzle madness #2

The things I use for sewing



As you have read in the last episode of Puzzle Madness we like to puzzle and after “The world of Shakespeare” we took on a bigger project. 

For years we had a puzzle of 9000 pieces and we did started at one point at the puzzle, until we got enough of it and it took up to much space.
