Hello dear friends! The pile with crochet flower squares is getting higher …
… but thinking that this Project began last winter, it should be much higher. Lots of needleing is still needed. One day we sat with Nero in the garden and made few NEW squares. It as amazing to sit in the garden in the beginning of January! On the windy side it was a little bit too cold but front of the sunny wall just perfect.
You see that my poor rosies starts to recover from the hot and dry summer. Every day there shows up NEW rosies …
I have found the pattern for this crochet flower square from the blog ‘Oma Koppa’. It’s Finnish blog but have a look because there are lots of great patterns and they are illustrated so you don’t need to read instructions. Photos are really cool and fun! If you are Finnish, enjoy the great humour!
These are really enjoy to make and very soon you remember the pattern and don’t need the pattern.
You may remember that I started this Project as a ‘Sea Glass Shawl’ – colours reminded me about the precious sea glass pieces I had found. I was missing turquoise colours and dear friend, Judith came for help and sent me lots of sea coloured yarns. Thank you again Judith! Now I had used all the suitable colours from my stash and was wondering how to continue …
Sometimes friends know better! I hadn’t mentioned anything about this Project to my dear friend Sonja. She sent to me again most amazing parcel! And there was also just perfect yarn to continue and finish this crochet Project! Very light grey/blue which matches so well with the other colours and gives also light for my work.
Thank you dear Sonja! I can never thank you enough for being so sweet and supportive friend! There were also three quilting books! And this is not all …
She had bought to me Susan Branch’s Calendar! It is the most beautiful calendar I have ever had! I shall share more about that in the coming months. You know Susan, don’t you? If not, you need to visit her, because her work is unbelievable! I’m lucky to have her book (present from Sonja) and it’s HANDWRITTEN! … like the calendar, too!
There were these most adorable Fabrics … I’m just admiring those delicous colours! Perfect blue for sky (which I have missed) but I don’t think I MIX these with my ‘messy’ Works but save them to make something Special with all this style of Fabrics. I’m happy to say that I have now great pundle to make something artistic!
Nero, Hanna and me received also wishes from these sweet friends, Sonja’s cute dogs! They are all so beautiful and the little one looks very much like our Foxy! Sonja is not blogging (yet) so unfortunately I can’t guide you to meet her. You will see more about my presents! Thank you again Sonja!
I have been reading my NEW quilting books and they are so inspiring! Hope to begin something soon!
At the moment I have more projects going on that I usually do.
