Behind The Scenes πŸ˜ŽπŸ§Άβ˜ƒοΈ

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• How have you been? I hope all is well in your neck of the woods 😊

All is good here…except we’re all getting a bit cabin-feverish. It’s so, so cold πŸ₯Ά β˜ƒοΈ

The recent snow brought us some beautiful scenery

But we’re ready for Spring-flowers – so today I turned my ‘ Jim Shore’ pillow over. From ‘Winter’ to ‘ Summer’! I hope Mother Nature will get the hint, and we’ll get at least the average temperatures for this time of year! 🌞🌷🌷

🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷

I’ve suffered from a touch of ‘bloggers block’ lately πŸ˜• I’m not sure it’s over, but I won’t know until I try. Right? Maybe some pictures with comments to get back into the groove of things? Okay…here we go 😁

While the Laptop got a bit dusty, the crochet hooks were quite busy.

I made another vest

The new cardigan ‘Opposites attract’ πŸ˜ƒ

I like the idea of two different-color halves…so there may be quite a few of them in the future πŸ˜‰

The second one is already in the works…

And I have an idea for a third one…

The sun came around the corner just as I snapped the picture, so it’s hard to tell that the right side is a deep black. I’m not complaining though…just saying she could’ve waited another second 😎

It’s not the best picture, but you get the idea of the colorway 😊

The big fail for last month was this coat…

I loved it while I made it, kinda liked it when I tried it on (it’s heavy!), and started to get an uneasy feeling about it when I put it on the mannequin and started taking pictures πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

It stayed on the mannequin for a few days…then the decision was made – it has to come apart. And I wasn’t even upset – I guess that’s a sign that it was the right choice! πŸ™ƒ

Notes to self:

1. Bulky yarn is not the perfect yarn for long coats (it gets reeaally heavy)

2. Do not use the Double-crochet stitch, especially when placed between stitches, when

working with bulky yarn (the stitches pull apart)

3. Don’t weave in ends until you’re 100% sure that the piece is perfect! It’s much, much easier to take something apart when the ends are still dangling

And last but not least…Georgia Mae’s blanket is finished πŸ₯° Big yawn…I guess it’s quite cozy…

Now it’s back to one of the WIPs 🀩

I hope you have a wonderful week! πŸ’•

      Hello Tracy 😍 Thank you so much πŸ’•
      You know me so well… I do love my crazy colors 😁
      Yeah, this storm was a doozy. And these temperatures! πŸ₯Ά This morning we had no degrees…but no wind – that helps a little.
      I saw that the β€˜snow-event’ was down your way. The guy that was buried by a roof-avalanche…he made our news πŸ˜‚ And the wife taking a picture first, and dug him out second πŸ˜†
      I hope your temps have recovered by now! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•πŸŒ·
