hello welcome to my first blog post of this year. i actually wanted to take a somewhat longer break from blogging, but i could not resist showing you a few photos. firstly i like to ask how you’re doing? were the first days of the new year comfortable and enjoyable?
i have not made any resolutions, because i think every day is a new day. here in the netherlands the temperature of the weather is like it is spring but it is actually winter. i have read that it is very cold in certain places in the world with lots of snow and wind. i prefer the temperatures of spring, but for that matter we have nothing to choose…
below you can see some pictures of projects and plants, i hope you like them?! but i will start with a little update.
do you remember the storage bag with the fishes? the bag i made for the granddaughter of my cousin renée but i did not have much time to sew a lining. that is why renée sewed the lining herself and this is the result.
looks cheerful, don’t you think?
you can find the tutorial for the storage bag via this link
a while back, i bought three hyacinths and put them in a green pot, the blue one is open a bit.
and i have two hyacinths that – the label tells – should flourish red, which i placed in two old large water glasses. i have a cover made for both in the same style as the dressed up vases.
the plant cuttings have grown a tiny bit, they hang in a small basket on the wall. the other hanging baskets hang in a bunch on the wall too.
none of the other projects (wips) i have finished, but i started a new blanket. the yarn is phildar charly in the color lin – a dark beige/jute shade – and the blocks are a variation on a vintage round coaster. i have crocheted the first four rows of the pattern and have then made a square of it. it won’t be a large blanket, because i don’t have enough yarn to make a large one and my plan is to make the border in a contrasting color.
this was it for today, until next time!
