My husband has created small meadows in our garden by leaving some of our lawn unmowed. It’s good for the bees and butterflies, and it’s so pretty too! And no weeding needed …
Today I admired all the pretty wild flowers, and got inspired to pick some. My busy crafter’s fingers started playing with them, and I decided to make a wreath by weaving the flowers around a stiff wire shaped into a heart.
My daughter asked me to bake a cake for her husband’s birthday party last week. She had decided to have a surprise garden party for him at a small community hall/museum close to her home here in Finland.
The theme for the party was America. Appropriate since it was held just one day after 4th of July. But mostly because my son-in-law has a dream to travel to the Rocky Mountains one day. Therefore also the cake had to be an American cake.
The last day of February! Spring equinox only 20 days away. Woot!
Longing for summer, traveling to it soon, and searching for nautical inspiration on the net, I ended up making a treasury on Etsy. It “only” took me 4 hours to find the images I liked, but it was worth it. During that time I went back to memories by the beach, by the lake, on the sea, feeling the sun and the salty wind. Good therapy!
For Thanksgiving last year I posted a photo of a scrumble I had been working on. Having thoughts of gratitude, harvest, and other related things, I realized my scrumble looked like a funky turkey head!
The scrumble is made using my two color spiral pattern, a “wing” pattern, and ridges made with reverse single crochet, a.k.a. Crab Stitch. The wing pattern can also be considered a leaf pattern.
