wip and testing


how sweet of you to drop by for a visit!


since my yesterday’s blog post about my new cushion cover, i have not much to tell, i think, but you might find it nice to see a few photos.


no progress concerning the ‘crochet object’ that you could see last week, except the purchase of wire (50 meters! i could not find a smaller amount).

last evening i made a green cover for a glass jar​​, i was looking forward to work with my favorite color after so much beige and pink during the last few weeks. the result is not very special, but when i see it on the windowsill it gives me happy feeling. or is it the sun shining after days of gray weather?

green crochet cover for glass jar



and here are pictures of bottoms in a row, bottoms of covers i mean, and i’m a little in love with the flower motif (green and gray).


after i had finished the green cover, i tried with pink (yes pink again) acrylic yarn to make a square with that motif. i am not satisfied yet, so i will continue testing.

happy to join:

hope to see you soon again!

    Het lijkt inderdaad het meest op een lampenkap.

    Het bloemetje is leuk: zowel gehaakte als ‘open’ bloemblaadjes.

  13. I also thought lamp cover!!! Maybe the wire reminded me of electric things? Your plant pot covers look like they glow with the sunlight showing through. Such warmth, I love them! Thank you…it is very cold here today in NYC 🙂
