WIP – Wednesday ~ Summer’s Here 😎

Hello my lovely friends 💕

I hope everything is well at your end of the Interwebs 😉

(Sorry, I’m watching ‘Monk’, and he just said it – that made me laugh so I had to use it in a sentence 😆)

Alrighty…where were we? Oh right – the current WIPs.

I’ve been busy planning next week’s workshop – so there is not too much to report 😁

I’m still working on the Purses. The ‘Agate Slice’ purse is almost finished.

Front and back are done, so is the strip that will keep everything together and give it some width. Then lining and handles and I have something to show off 😍

A few weeks ago I came across a Facebook add for a yarn sale. Well, put ‘yarn’ and ‘sale’ in one sentence and I’m there. Oh boy, was it a Sale! 😁

I found Bamboo yarn for an unbelievable price! Yeah, I had to buy bundles of 10…but at $2 a skein I didn’t hesitate! 😍

Isn’t it gorgeous?!

The sock-knitters among you probably spotted the sock yarn right away. 😁 Yep, same company, and also an amazing deal.

I’m very happy with the quality of both! I’m working with both yarns right now – they’re coming together in a colorful Summer-Tunic

What do you think? A nice cami underneath, and I’m set for the hot weather 😎

The first strip for the back is already done

The only problem I’m foreseeing now is the ‘weaving-in-of-the-Bamboo-yarn-ends’. It’s quite slippery, and I’m worried that it won’t stay where I put it. Any tips? I would be so grateful! 🙂

If you’re interested in checking out the company (no affiliation, just a friendly tip 😊) here’s the link to the Yarn Zone

I just checked, and the ‘Bag Deals’ are still available. 😃

The planning for the workshop ‘A Day of Crochet‘ is coming along nicely.

People are signing up, projects are done – there will be a ‘Granny Square’ lesson, crochet flowers, and a ‘Chilly Cowl’ – that’s a Summer cotton cowl. Before wearing you soak it in cold water, and it will keep you cool for hours. 😎

Chilly Cowl

Granny Square & Flower – for a 2-in-1 Dishcloth/Scrubby

I hope everyone will have a fun crochet-day 😍

Have you been to a Yarn-Retreat? Do you have any tips/advice for me? What did you expect when signing up? I would love it if you would share your experience! 😌

Until then 💕

Monthly Meet-up ~ Flowers 🌺 🌷💐

Hello my lovely friends 💕

Today I finally found the time to read many of your wonderful blogs 😃

While indulging in that, I stumbled across a photo challenge, hosted by Wild Daffodil

This month’s theme is Flowers 💐

Since we’re having a very late Spring, I didn’t expect too much when I headed into the yard with my camera. But upon closer inspection I did spot a few picture-worthy blooms. 😃

Under a just-now-sprouting-green ‘Rose of Sharon’ bush I found some ‘Forget-me-nots’ 😊

The Lilac bush is showing off it’s beauty – and spreading it’s wonderful fragrance through the little corner of our world 😍

Dandelions…we have Dandelions! 😁 But I do love them so they get to stay (and spread 😉)

Then I spotted some little violets hiding in the grass 🙂

Aren’t they lovely? 💕

Back inside I noticed that my ‘Christmas Cactus’ is starting to bloom 😆 Does that count?

Silly little thing 😁

I did save my favorite picture for last 😍

Make a wish! 🧚🏼‍♀️

I know that wasn’t much…but I think the few that had the decency to show up deserve a little praise! 😁

Let’s hope that Flowers will bloom all around us soon! 💕

Thanks for dropping by! 🤗 I hope you enjoyed your stay!

Amigurumi – Galore 🌺🐙🦄

Hello my lovely friends 💕

Amigurumi is something I’m very intrigued by, but also find a bit intimidating – so I haven’t tried it yet. 🤓 I do enjoy looking at the creations though 😊 and today I wanna share the cuties of the ‘Crochet Creature World’ 😍

~ This one caught my eye on Pinterest

It took some digging, but I finally found the pattern here (Link to Etsy; paid pattern)

~ The ‘Fish in a Jar’ is perfect for a kid’s room 🙂

The pattern is free on Ravelry – you can find it Here 😍

~ ‘Wiley the Wisp‘ from Emma Crafts Design <—– Link to the Free Pattern on Emma’s wonderful and inspiring blog 😃

Isn’t he cute? 😍

~ This little Army of Hedgehogs is so adorable 😍

You will find the pattern (written and video) right Here

~ The Sleepy Fox will be loved by everyone 😊

Awwww 😍 I learned that he can be woken up with a kiss 😁

Learn how to make your own right Here (Free Pattern)

~ Melman, the cuddly Hippo stole my heart 💜 The longer you look at him the more you love him! 😊

Bring him to life by following this Link 😍 (free pattern)

A few weeks ago I found this Amigurumi kit at our Aldi store

My ultimate (Amigurumi) goal is a large dragon 😁 so I will start with the iddy biddy one from this kit, and work my way up 🤓

Do you crochet little critters? I’d love to hear about your experience, and, of course, see the final cutie

Thanks for stopping by 😃 💕 I hope you enjoyed this post and found a new project right here!
