You Belong in Spring

Optimistic, lively, and almost always happy with the world…

You can truly appreciate the blooming nature of spring.

Whether you’re planting flowers or dyeing Easter eggs, spring is definitely your season!

I was part of a Christmas Stocking swap, and this is my creation… I don’t know much about my swap pal, but I hope she’ll like this.

The yarn is Portuguese, from a private swap with Lucia 🙂
I think there ALWAYS has to be a small soft toy in a sock 😉

Knittig lace

I WAS planning on knitting one lace bookmark a day – at least – and this is my Lacevember catch… well… better than Socktober :->

The turquoise thingy is horrible. I made it just to practice lace knitting. The needles I have are too thick, I don’t have 0, 00, 000 or 0000 – I’d like to, but lace knitting isn’t popular in Scandinavia, so they don’t offer needles in those sizes. Perhaps a swap pal will have mercy on me, and send me a pair of thin lace knitting needles 😉

This is the first sketch to my peacock crazy quilt. It’s heavily inspired by Linda B. at Flickr… I think she has had some help from her friends, and wish I had friends like that 😀

Anyways, I’m going to go through the 100 details for 100 days, and use a lot of paisley and feathers. And peacocks 😉
I’m also going to use a lot of maroon and dark, spicy burgundy flowers, because I love the dark, spicy burgundy maroon, and I think it goes lovely with these peacock colors.

And then some rosepink tiny roses 🙂 Those are so cute and will balance well all the darkness of the quilt.

There’s going to be quite a lot of black lace as well and copper…

I really don’t know what to do with this, but hey, a girl has to have at least one crazy quilt!

Dear Jane…

This is the Dear Jane quilt. Now I know what it is… and now I just have to do it. Join the Janiacs 😉

It looks very nice in these old-fashioned, brownish colors, but it looks nice in other color combinations as well.

This is “Edith“s version. I was thinking of peacock colors… a little darker perhaps… no fiery or pale patches… hmm…

One could also try to make something interesting with it… This one would be perfect for Patriotic theme 🙂 Blue and white, like the Finnish flag, and with a twist 🙂

The only problem is – of course – that I don’t have time. 😦

count your demons…

When I counted up my demons
Saw there was one for every day
With the good ones on my shoulders
I drove the other ones away

So if you ever feel neglected
And if you think that all is lost
I’ll be counting up my demons, yeah
Hoping everything’s not lost

When you thought that it was over
You could feel it all around
And everybody’s out to get you
Don’t you let it drag you down

– Everything’s not Lost, Coldplay
