Circles Galore


It isn’t a secret at all that I really love the shape of circles. I’ve made several items, both with crochet and with patchwork, using circles. And now again!


So I thought it would be nice to have a look around the web to see what other people do with circles.

Below in the mosaic you can find all kinds of circles: very bright, more subdued, knitted, crocheted, painted and even mowed.

Something Old and Something New

Happy New Year!! I wish you a very good 2013, with lots of yarn and fabric happiness.

And because I haven’t thanked you personally, I want to thank everyone who left a comment on my last post. It is wonderful to read all those comments; especially  since I’m so happy with my cowl, it just ads something extra.

Like I did last year, and a lot of you do too, I made a mosaic of the highlights of 2012.

Let’s hope this year is going to be as colourful as last year.

I did make a good start:


This is just a sample, trying to figure out stitches and combinations. This week I want to try and figure out how to make this into a wearable item.

A New Year!


I wish each and everyone of you all the best for this new year, and at the same time I want to thank each and everyone of you for visiting my little spot in blog-land and for all the lovely comments you have left me over the last year. I enjoy very much reading them and I appreciate them a lot.

This is just a part of all the finished items from last year. Sometimes I make these little mosaics as a kind of a mood board, to get inspiration from.

As for this year, I don’t know yet what direction I’m going. It will involve a lot of knitting, crochet and sewing, that’s for sure. I have quite some ideas for new patterns, but I’m not sure yet if they will work out the way I want them to. We’ll see.

While I was working hard this week to finish both flower scarves, I decided to treat myself on some delicious strawberries. The first time this season I had them, and it is always such a wonderful treat, don’t you think?


Not only do they taste wonderful, they look great too! That made me wonder, if there would be any handmade items on Flickr with strawberries as a theme. Of course there were.
