Rainbow Snails - Regenbogenschnecken




Dear friends,


don‘t quite know whether I‘m happy with what I managed this week. Each „one hour of“ kind of turned out into uploading a few stitch markers onto my Etsy shop. Not too bad, as I still had time to spend crocheting, but…

Even though you might think these snails have been with me all week – I have to disappoint you: I worked on a shawl with that gorgeous Wensleydale yarn I bought in Oban. I‘m on my last ball (and colour) now, it still has to be blocked, and then I will be able to show it to you. Ah well, here‘s a sneak peek…

Sheep Key Pendant / Schlüsselanhänger Schaf

  

Dear friends,


I‘m getting on pretty well with the one-hour-per-day schedule. As long as ordering new supplies counts as one hour of concentrated and thorough working on a subject…

And if not, who cares? I made stitch markers, stitch marker cards, crocheted, made pictures, tidied up the studio (err 😹) and … even wrote a blogpost (well, I‘m still at it – right?).

Back Home – Wieder zu Hause


Do less - Enjoy more
  

Loch Leven and Pap of Glencoe

 

Dear friends,


still afloat in that space between not-there-anymore and not-yet-home (the definition of „home“ being quite delicate in my case), I made some decisions, which could be summarized as “Do less – Enjoy more”.

Stornoway Waistcoat - Stornoway Weste





Dear friends,


as far as I remember, I did mention us visiting Hakki and the girls at their home in Steinish (near Stornoway – Isle of Lewis) last year (read post here), after I bought their wool at Wool4Ewe in Stornoway. I must have, for sure…

Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party #9



Welcome to the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party!


It's the 1st Saturday of September!
It's time for the 9th 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.

You haven't got to be a “big name” or a designer to join the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party. All you need is a granny square related crochet (or knit) post. By joining the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party you will be able to grow your blog as well as gather loads of inspiration.

Before we enter the next party, let's start with sharing the top five link ups of the August Link-Up Party (#8):




  1. Granny-LIEBE by Dino-Bären:
  2. BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY BAG by Atelier Marie-Lucienne:
  3. Crochet Tutorial - How to Make the Perfect Granny Square by Lullaby Lodge:

🎉Congratulations🎊, ladies! 


Now let's move on to the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party #9

Party Rules (please read!):

  • Link directly to a granny square related crochet (or knit) blogpost (not to your home page). If you haven't got an actual project to show, feel free to add a link to an old blogpost! Anything family-friendly goes!
  • Limit to 3 links and don't repeat projects which have already been featured.
  • Link up your own work. Links infringing on copyright and/or trademark as well as sponsored posts will be deleted.
  • Please visit at least one other link and leave a nice comment to support your fellow crafter!
  • I'd highly appreciate if you'd follow me on at least one of my social media links (see below) – if only to know if you got featured or when the next Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party is due.

By adding your link to the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party, you give me permission to share your post and pictures on my social media sites, in features, in round-ups and on my blog (always with a link back to you for proper credit).

Help me to get the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party known by sharing on social media, by linking back to this party and by tagging it with #GrannySpirationLinkUpParty. The more people taking part, the merrier it'll become!
