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.
  

True, I had ordered these beads too, but I wasn't really waiting for them impatientently. I had been tempted to make something with beads ever since I scrolled past a video of Naztazia on my facebook feed, so I ordered some, just in case I would feel like eventually, but…

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!

Always look on the bright side of life...


Dear friends,


it's been a busy week, but it was worth while. Sadly enough this wasn't about crochet though. From the 2nd of May on, I'll finally work part-time again, instead of just having a mini-job. That does mean less time for crochet and for dyeing and for stitch markers, but... Well, you know what I mean...

Garden Mandala – Garten Mandala


Dear friends,


yesterday afternoon, it was nearly 6 pm, I suddenly felt like making a few madalas for the front garden. You might remember last year's yarnbombing (here and here), which was mostly in pale blues, soft pinks and purples and greens. Everything is still there, a tiny bit faded maybe, but definitely lacking brightness and vivacity.

Progress - Fortschritte



Dear friends,


I'm finally getting somewhere. Well at least I've got the feeling things are finally moving on. It started with the dyeing experiment (which will continue next week) and it ended with pattern-writing.

Episode 4 + C2C Fox Cushion / C2C Fuchskissen




Dear friends,



🐑🐰Happy Easter!🌷🐣


You might know by now that I've got a soft spot for foxes. Even though I have, you never could have told by my crochet, could you? That's why I decided on making a fox cushion approx. three weeks ago.
