The Bottles – Die Bottles*

Dear friends,

last Sunday I thoroughly amused myself while my husband was taking his bike for a ride. Actually, I did start crocheting in the morning, right after breakfast, but he still didn't have a clue what I was up to, when he left after we had had our dinner...

I already had the idea last year, long before I started yarnbombing our garden, and therefore I simply hadn't got the bottle (no pun intended) to carry out this idea...

Beads Bag (with how-to) – Perlentasche (mit Anleitung)


Dear friends,

last Saturday I was hoping the postman would bring me the supplies I ordered for making new stitch markers, but he (actually last Saturday it was a lady postman) brought these instead.

Pause for Thought* – Eine Denkpause

Dear friends,

once more I'm taking part in a Makelight course by Emily Quinton. This one is : “Pause for Thought”. Comes in pretty much at the right time, as I do have the feeling I'm getting nowhere and I haven't achieved anything in 2018 so far.

Episode one already showed me, that I'm absolutely wrong. True there are a few things that didn't work out as well as I hoped they would (need I mention pattern-writing..?), but others did. Isn't it amazing how much we concentrate on all what's negative in our lives? Why cannot we see things more positively? I'm not talking about taking things lightly, I'm talking about looking on the bright side of life instead!

Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party #5

Welcome to the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party!

It's the 1st Saturday of May!
It's time for the fifth Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party!

(Hier geht's zu den deutschsprachigen Erläuterungen...)

This Link-Up Party is all about granny squares. You are most welcome to link-up any projects you've made with either the traditional granny square, the solid one or any granny square you love or even have created yourself.

The Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party will start on the first Saturday of each month at 8 a.m. (CET) and will run 20 days. You'll be able to share your finished objects as well as your WIPs with other crocheters from all around the world. The five most popular links will be featured and shared on my social media sites.
