At the seaside

I've discovered Blogger in the App-store.
So this is a test. 
If this proves to be user friendly, I am on my blogging track again!
After a too long period of all work and no play, I'm on a crafting break.
Time to try Lace knitting.

Fair Isle Knitting

Oh my, it's been sooo long, I've completely forgotten how to use Blogger. Everything has changed... But I'll give it a try. Have been overwhelmed with computer work, but still found the time to follow a knitting course. I finally learned how to knit Fair Isle, with one colour in each hand. Knitting with my left hand was a bit awkward in the beginning, but now I really wonder how I managed before...

Back

Holidays are over, children back to school, trying to make another start with my blog... We have two new chickens, and I hope this time their coop will be fox proof.

My first real blog post in 2012...

I finished this crocheted blanket already in January, but there were a lot of blogging obstacles, no time, not really in the mood, etc... Hope this will be a fresh start of a new blogging year! No more excuses!


And no, this blanket is not meant for the cat, my daughter has taken it to her student room.

A happy 2012!


To all of my fellow bloggers...

Granny squares

I really wanted something to do while watching television, or while sitting in the car or on the train, a project to fit in my handbag. And what is more suitable then crocheting little blocks for a granny blanket? Lots of inspiration on other blogs, and this blanket really took my attention.

Not the same pattern, but the variations are endless, of course.

My daughter is studying in another city now, so she was in need for a blanket for her student room.
And I had an excuse to make yet another crocheted blanket...
I already jointed all the blocks (no pictures yet), and all the loose ends still need weaving in, least pleasant part of the job...

A sad day

Tuesday was a terrible day, we had to go to the veterinary with our oldest cat. And we had to put him to sleep...
After a long and happy life of almost 20 years.
I know this is exceptionally old for a cat, but still...
This is the last picture I took of him, resting in the shade.

And this one was taken when he was still very fit and strong. At the end, he wasn't able to jump anymore, and almost blind.

The end of summer

After a terrible summer, wet and cold, we are having a week of sunshine. Finally!
Time to post my summer block.

Needles 'n Pins

Before leaving on holiday, I made this little strawberry pincushion. Easy to take with me everywhere!
You can find the tutorial here.


And as I was in a pincushion mood, I made this one the same afternoon. Tutorial here.
Sometimes I really need little projects like this, because I have been working for so long on my quilt already.

Cats on my quilt

Guess how much time it took, before these two ended on my quilt blocks, spread out on the floor...
Less than three minutes, record broken!



Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures, I had to be quick, and there was almost no light.
