The #100DayProject challenge is already running for 40 days. And it
no longer feels weird crocheting Christmas ornaments in the middle of
spring either. After all, I'm keeping busy with a few other things
too. Dyeing wool for instance and crocheting thistles.
I know it‘s weird to make crochet
Christmas ornaments in Spring – just ask me! Christmas ist still
many months away and the world outside my window finally turned into Spring-mode. The dull garden suddenly is full of flowers and colours
and I‘m either indoors or on the patio industriously stitching away
humming „Jingle Bells...“.
I haven‘t been around much in blogland. I did tend to post to when I
had something to show, but in fact, I do not even stick to this rule
anymore either. Day job has become very demanding and I haven‘t got
much energy left in the evening to do too many things. And there are
a lot of things needing my attention daily, e.g. my Etsy-shop. (BTW: I‘ve now got a whole new range of Scottish / Celtic / British
stitch markers and Cross Stitch Kits and still loads of ideas for
flowers never worry When
the wind begins to blow. And
they never, never cry When
the rain begins to fall.“
upon this song by coincidence. A bit antiquated, but I thought it
cause we (at least on the Northern hemisphere) are longing for
spring: no more snow, no more torrential rainfalls, no more storms…
as soon as I saw the cute garland
Sandra of Reflections & Nature made (see here), I knew the living
room could do with one too. The living room being rather large,
pastels just wouldn‘t do. So I needed strong, vibrant colours.
Picking colours at random out of my stash, putting them in some kind
of order, I ended up with a rainbow. Suited me fine.
