yellow monday




here in the netherlands it is bright spring weather and i hope the weather is nice to you, too.

this lovely white crocus stands with it’s “brothers and sisters” in my living room. the orange looks like neon orange, pretty don’t you think?



and this daffodil blossoms in my garden, could hardly be more beautiful.


in terms of crocheting, the first half of my pouf is ready, but working with the black yarn has done my right thumb no good. that yarn is as stiff as rope. giving my hands a break would be a good idea but a day without crocheting is not a very good day to me. 

so i started the same working method of the pouf with a much thinner cotton yarn and an oversized hook. it goes well, just the joining you see a little clearer.


i also started a little bag for summer for myself, but if it works out …?

another time i’ll tell you more about it.



i wish you a beautiful new week!
