bright blue, a plant and orange



nice of you to come to meet my new household member, it’s name is senecio (full name: senecio rowleyanus). 

for a while i wanted such a plant, and when i was recently at a garden center, i bought one. i think it is a beautie:)

more info about the plant in dutch or in english



also i have tulips, yellow and red striped ones this time.

tulip yellow and red close up


bright blue and orange 

and i crocheted two small squares between working on my black blanket and pastel lacy blocks.

the bright blue square on the photo is made of cotton with crochet hook size 2.5 mm and the orange one of mercerised cotton with crochet hook 2.0 mm.

after months of crocheting with acrylic yarns and larger sizes hooks i had to get used to working with thinner hooks again, but i liked it. it is nice to see how different squares look when using different kind of yarns and colors, don’t you think?

if you have mist the post with the explanations how to make them, see here.


soon more info about my work in progress.
have a lovely day!
