Crochet Inspiration


Hi dear friends! It feels so spring here! After some cold days we have again wonderful weather. That helps me to make plans for new summer collection with crochet …


I like the idea to MIX crochet tehcnique with Sea pottery  and I have made few testings.

This bright blue cotton looks for me very summery! But so is white and red, so more crocheting on my way.


With very much thinner yarn I have made few neckwears. They are ‘Past in Present’ style and even I first thought to use some sea glass with them, I decided to leave them without. I think they will be beautiful against sun tanned skin.

White is always so White! But Turquoise is also adorable summer colour!

All the yarns I have used are cotton, soft and comfortable to wear.

Here is a little bit help to imagine the summer, sunburnt sand and salty waves …


The morning yesterday was magical! I am lucky to have a sweet friend to take me to the beach …

Golden Retriever

Old wall had perfect colour for her background – that I noticed later when looked this photo. This cute girl is so sweet company and walks so nicely on the road.


We made sun dried bread – she loves to hide them!

At home I took photos with Nero and Hanna. Because I needed Nelli’s garden table, she hided under the chair …


Nero enjoyed the looooong grass which will be cutted these days …


Hanna, well known not so good friend with the camera, was eating grass …


I’m happy that they can be a lot outside and enjoy the garden!

Wouldn’t it be great to have fabric with little, colourful tulips! This is a scarf that I have had ‘all my life’ = means that I can’t remember at all from where and when I have got it.


Okey, still one from the beach and then I leave you …


I wish you wonderful weekend! Thank you for reading my blog and writing so lovely comments!
