#100DayOfCrochetOrnaments (Part II / Teil 2)






Dear friends,

unbelievable! 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.

And I Still Haven‘t Found What I‘m looking For...*




Dear Friends,

this weekend I spent some time in the witches‘ kitchen intending to conjure a colourway I would make the second version of my Summer Tee with (see previous post)…

Summer Tee – Sommerpulli




Dear friends,

Hurray for the Easter Bank Holidays! I was a pretty busy bee and as all was either wool, yarn or crochet related, it was tremendous fun.

On Friday night I finally started a summer tee for me. I had dyed the yarn (a cotton-wool-silk mix) in March, but …

#100DayOfCrochetOrnaments (Part I / Teil 1)







Dear friends,


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...“.

Thistle Cushion - Distelkissen






Dear friends,

true, 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 crochet goodies)

Little Flowers – Kleine Blumen





Little flowers never worry
When the wind begins to blow.
And they never, never cry
When the rain begins to fall.“
                                                                                                    Heritage Singers



Dear friends,

I stumbled upon this song by coincidence. A bit antiquated, but I thought it fitting, cause we (at least on the Northern hemisphere) are longing for spring: no more snow, no more torrential rainfalls, no more storms…

Spring Garland with February Coaster – Frühlingsgirlande





Dear friends,

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.
