MM: or no... Wait, its Tuesday!

That's right... I forgot MM again. I don't know how many people actually read MM, but I know my sister won't appreciate another week missed... And I must admit: I have two reason to write this post anyway, better late that never...

Reason number one:
Me and Poes actually had an adventure last week... And I want to share with you!

You see, my cat is well traveled... I study at the university and live in the city where I study. But in the weekends I leave for my moms. It's cheaper, and of course... Gezelliger...
I know, Dutch word... Fairly untranslatable, so let's just say it's more fun to go home to my mom ;)

This traveling involves a train ride of an hour each week, and Poes? She just tags along!

From day one she had a traveling bag. And no, the two cats no longer fit in together... They were only like 8 weeks old here! (Nor would they tolerate being this close to each other anymore).

Although anything that gets her transported will do, Poes has a preference for nice cozy bags on train rides... As what's a cat got to do? Sleep of course... And be very cute, so other travelers oohh and aahh ;)

Now, on to our adventure of last week... My cat also walk on a leash! :D
And we took a nice walk through the mini, semi-forest across from my building:

It made us happy. And I remembered how much fun it can be, as I hadn't taken Poes out for a while... Now I have decided to take walks more often again :)

Are you still wondering what the second reason is for catching up with this post anyway?
Well, you will find out next week... But I can tell you it has something to do with the fact that this is post 94...

FOF: Snowman

Hi everyone! It is FOFriday again, and I have two projects finished. One of those, you haven't seen before!

woensdag 11 december 2013

WIPW: Winter is coming!

Yes, you read that correctly. Here in the Netherlands it is not yet impressive (nor does anyone expect it to be impressive already), but other parts of the world might thing of this as an understatement ;)
Yet, I try to bring some snow into my house anyway...

FOF: More Sinterklaas!

Today I show you the result from a week of Sinterklaas crafting. I made the Sinterklaas Surprise for my mom. And so I have been busy...

woensdag 4 december 2013

WIPW: Sinterklaas

This WIPWednesday is a short one, I only have one project... But this one is extremely cute!

zaterdag 30 november 2013


Hi everyone, while it is no longer Friday, it is time for my actual FOFriday post.
Yesterday it was just too late to write the entire thing (and translate it for my Dutch blog), so I catch up today.

vrijdag 29 november 2013

FOF: Sheep

I did finish... And I didn't want to leave you hanging...

I will write a real, but be lated FOFriday tomorrow... She took longer than I thought to assemble, and now it is bed time. Please do come back tomorrow! :)

woensdag 27 november 2013

WIPW: Where to start?

Hi everyone. It is WIPWednesday... Have you seen my growing list of WIPs on the left side? I have over 20 WIPs... No I won't show them all. Only a few ;)

maandag 25 november 2013

MM: Rosso

After last weeks Meow Monday post my sister protested really hard, claiming I missed one of our pets...
Well, our semi-adoptive pet ;)

Meet Rosso:

Yeah, that's right... The red one outside. It is a very, very tiny male cat (as you might see, Muffin is quite bigger, although way younger).

He has been around quite long already. He was big buddies with Teigertje, our previous cats. Poes and Muffin... Not so much! ;)
Living down the street he quickly learned that in summer our back door is open and that there is cat food in the house!

All that is left to do then, is capture the heart of the biggest pet lover of the house (my sister) and food is only a meow away! ;)

Now in winter-y times he joins in on our late night (henge the picture quality) dog walks for a little pet, a big cuddle and some nice late night snacking...

He is the cutest thing around, and my sisters biggest wish is to adopt him truly. Unfortunately we know his owner well, so she has some bad luck. She will have to do with petting and laughing:

^ this is not an uncommon sight, as you walk down the street with not enough attention for Rosso :D

I thought I'd look for a cat-loving pattern today, and this is what I found:

A Valentine cat! I love this thing... And be honest... He looks like Rosso ;)

WIPW: A new challenge

Hello everyone... It's WIPWednesday today. And I have quite some projects to show, so lets move on immediately!

maandag 18 november 2013

MM: Christmas here yet?

Hi everyone... It is time already for Meow Monday again. I nearly forgot!

But say, we can't start our week without some cuteness, right? As a reward for surviving Monday! ;)

I was thinking, you already met Poes and Muffin, but you never met my first cat, even though you will probably only see him once:

This big, white monter is our first cat. Teigertje... No, when you are not Dutch or a native speaker you can't pronounce this properly ;)
This giant never hurt a fly (it did catch birds, for that matter), really the most layed back cat you'll ever meet...
Unfortunately Teigje passed away some time ago already, but still he looks nice and cute on pics! ;)

This cat was the buddy of our other pet, although I am not quite sure whether or not she will appreciate that I put her on a cat-themed page, but she just fits right in ;)

See... Same hat! :P I think almost every animal gets cute wearing Santa's hat.

So, then let's keep the patterns in a similar theme, right?

Alright, no hat... But stil cute. And on time to start now and finish to hang a cat in the christmas tree later!

And I could not help but add this one:

I keep putting this one off, but I have been wanting to make a cat christmas tree for a while now... It just keeps up its hopeful place on my to-do-list...

I hope to see you back on WIPW or FOF!

vrijdag 15 november 2013

FOF: Cliff 4ever!

Hi everyone... FOFriday already again. I have only one project to show this week, but certainly cute enough to fill the whole blog with!

woensdag 13 november 2013

WIPW: A New Spyro

Good morning everyone... This Wednesday I do have new projects started. Unfortunately I can't show them all (the Holiday season is arriving), but I found two projects prepared to go on a photograph for you...

maandag 11 november 2013

MM: A belated birthday

Yes, you have read that right... Another birthday!

As my sister shortly mentioned last week, Muffin also celebrated her birthday recently.
On Thursday to be exact.

vrijdag 8 november 2013


Hi everyone... I skipped WIPWednesday this week, it so happens to be that I had only FOs lying around on Wednesday. But that means I do have something to show you today!

maandag 4 november 2013

MM: Poes' birthday!

Hello dear followers of CrochetPlush,
Today I have the pleasure of writing a little something for Meow Monday.

vrijdag 1 november 2013

FOF: Puffy and Kreadoe 2013

It's late... I enjoyed a lovely day at the Kreadoe fair. This is the BIGGEST craft fair in the Netherlands. I had so much fun.

MM: Halloween

Welcome to another edition of Meow Monday...

Lately I have seen plenty of pictures of dressed-up cats... Thinking of Halloween, I thought, don't I have pictures like that?

vrijdag 25 oktober 2013

FOF: Cat and owl

Hi everyone! I am totally ready for FOFriday... As I did not finish only one, but two projects!

woensdag 23 oktober 2013


Good morning! Did you all enjoy the reintroduction of Meow Monday?
I got a little confused this morning, thinking I had nothing to show you all...

zondag 20 oktober 2013

MM: Back again...

Hi everyone...
You didn't expect that, a post on Monday, right?

On insistance from my sister I am reintroducing Meow Monday... With a little twist...
Yes, I will show off cute pictures of my cat, Poes, and my sister's cat, Muffin, I mean, what do you expect? She has a secondary motive!
But beside that we will keep up with the crochet-theme of my blog: every Monday I will share a crochet pattern and maybe even an occasional knitting pattern.... Very cat related, of course!

So, ready for some cat cuteness?
How it all began...

The top little one is Poes, the bottom one is a seductive Muffin...
Aren't they the cutest? ;)

Now, we can move on to something more crochet-y.

For our first cat pattern, we of course take the most famous crocheted cat!
Amineko! Never heard of him? I can hardly believe that...

He is a cute little fellow, right?

And, even better... He has a big brother! Amari-san.

Both patterns are available on Ravelry.

You will have to make an account to get access to them... But I can assure you: making that account is worth the trouble! You will get access to millions of patterns, and certainly thousands of cat patterns!

Bring it on with the cat cuteness!

For today we will end with the girl to whom you all own your thank you's for Meow Monday:

My sister...

See you on Wednesday!

vrijdag 18 oktober 2013

FOF: Bunny!

Welcome back to FOFriday! Today we will continue on with the shorter posts, I have three projects to show... But they are cute! ;)

woensdag 16 oktober 2013

WIPW: Bunny

Hi everyone! It is WIPWednesday again, already!
After last week's long post, today is a short one ;)

donderdag 10 oktober 2013

FOF: Not too small either...

Hi everyone... This week everything seems to turn out a little big. My Wednesday post was quite long (if you missed it, please, do take the time to read it anyway; it has some nice stuff! :) ) and today's post isn't to small either.
Next to this, I took on the monstrous task of making all my (133) Ravelry projectpages public... This means you can visit them now, even without having a Ravelry account. How cool is that? You can find my WIPs in the sidebar on the left, they will take you right there!

WIPW and FOF: Safari...

Hello everyone...
Due to a local holiday tomorrow, I will have a chaotic end of my week... And most likely, my blogging will not make it above that chaos.

So, to make sure I don't forget: I have decided to combine WIPWednesday and FOFriday, it is all about the same project after all... :)
