I‘m Dreaming Of A White Christmas…

Dear friends,

I know, many may find I‘m out of my mind thinking of Christmas at the end of September. Maybe I am, but truth be told: I‘ve been in some kind of Christmas mode for most of the year. In April I joined in the 100DayProject and the topic I chose this year was Christmas ornaments (do have a look at the hashtag #100DaysOfCrochetOrnaments on Instagram).

Summer Tablecloth – SommerlicheTischtücher

Dear friends,

mid July Maya (The Little Treasures) wrote a post about the „FlowerPounding Technique“. I was immediately intrigued by this technique, but couldn‘t try it as I didn‘t have any alum powder. By the time the powder arrived I was busy with other things. Yesterday I finally was able to give it a go.

Little Thistle (free pattern) – Kleine Distel (Anleitung)

Dear friends,

on Sunday I felt a bit frustrated. I had finished eight crochet Christmas hearts the night before and I wasn‘t happy about the amount of time it had taken me to get them done.

An thus I didn‘t feel like making Christmasstars, nor did I feel like making Christmasbaubles either. In fact I haven‘t got that many baubles left and therefore the colour-schemes I can turn to are rather restricted and I do not like restrictions at all.

Striped Sweater – Gestreifter Pulli

Dear friends,

when you‘re following me on Instagram (or an facebook) you will have seen this picture shortly before we went on holidays to Scotland.
I was glad I took the striped sweater along, cause I was able to wear it a few times and I grew really fond of it. First of all because it‘s comfy and warm and secondly because it‘s so joyously colourful without being too loud.

Scotland 2019 – Schottland 2019

Dear Friends,

Strathy Point Lighthouse
we‘re back since more than a week now, but I still haven‘t really arrived here yet. It feels a bit awkward to call this home, cause I feel more at home in Scotland than I actually do where I live.

We‘ve only been away for 12 days, but it feels as if the holiday has been much longer. Unlike last year we hadn‘t jam-packed our days and just enjoyed „let‘s see what the day brings“.

Dear friends,

The #100DayProject days 41 till 60. We have passed the half-time mark and are now nearing the finish line one step at a time. True: day 100 is still miles away!

#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.
