This is what I sent a very special lady for her birthday, 16th of January:

The notebook is made from a pattern in the book:

“Flowerpower patchwork” 

The book shows beautiful colored patchwork project but I chose this quiet design for the notebook because I couldn’t find any fabric in a specific green color. So I decided to crochet a flower instead and made the notebook more discrete looking. Ok… I know… I am a chicken when it comes to using colors…. Sorry Karen but I hope you liked it anyway?

What the HECK happend?

These crochet needle cases are a custom order…or at least one of them is. Trine send me this beautiful fabric and when I ironed on the “volumenvlies” (couldn’t find the English word for the batting) the glue dots melted through the fabric. You might not be able to see it on the photo but I can asure you that there are plenty of ugly glue dots. I was totally in panic. I have never had that problem with “volumenvlies” before.

I decided to make Trine one more crochet needle case and hoped for the best. Trine was in her right to be angry with me but she was so nice. She didn’t get upset and even send me flowers!!!! Amazing….and she asked me to make her a knitting needle case! It is nice to know that she has faith in me.

I sommers begyndte jeg på dette hækleprojekt…

Vesten er hæklet efter et mønster fra Hendes Verden. Den er hæklet i bomuldsgarn, men som I kan se mangler den at blive kantet med fastmasker. Jeg har forsøgt at færdiggøre den, men motivationen udeblev, da vesten også er for lille til mig (og nej hækleprøver er for tøsedrenge…). Hvis der er nogen ude i blogland, der har lyst til at lave den færdig og selvfølgelig beholde vesten, så send mig en linie. Alternativet er, at vesten bliver smidt i skraldespanden. Vestens mål er: 45 cm (målt fra side til side) og 46 cm lang.

Crochet doll

This doll I made for a little girl (not my niece this time). I think she turned out nice. I didn’t have a pattern but just crocheted along hoping for the best.

The doll hasn’t got a name yet but I am sure that it will match her personality!

The doll brought a spring feeling into our house with her bright colours but now she is on her way to Copenhagen and I have to “settle” with the gentle spring feeling from my paper lanterns. Well I am not “settling” with anything because I love my paper lanterns that Karen Klarbæk sent me just before Christmas.
