Finishing Touches (365/53)

I have to say I am quite pleased with this week. I think it was pretty sweet and exciting. I finished one project and started two adorable ones that only need a few finishing touches before I can show them to you. The last adjustments involve embroidering a nice flower, making a cute border and crocheting a lovely colorful flower. Blissfully enjoyable!

For the rest of the week, all I wish for is a lovely trip tomorrow and some lovely muffins on Sunday (for some reason I’ve been craving muffins terribly for quite a few days and I have to have to have to make some really soon).

So, yes, life is pretty sweet these day.

What was your week like?

Sending lots of love,
Petra

Starting a new project when the previous one hasn’t been finished yet, this scenario happens in my life quite often. Is this a good thing? Is this a bad thing? If I only knew… All I do know, however, is that I had a pretty exciting morning playing with all kinds of beautiful, colorful and amazing stuff.

It was a bliss!

Have a very nice day!

Little Bit Of Tea And Crochet

(365/51)

Hi guys!

I’d like to show you my newest project today. It’s all in its early stages, actually, but already I am having a lot of fun. I am really curious to see how it turns out. The plan is to involve some embroidery in this thing, so, yes, I am pretty excited. Of course, I will keep you posted about the progress and the result.

Oh, and remember my yesterday’s post about going to buy yarn and not being able to avoid my favorite mug store on the way there? Well, that cup is the result… of yarn shopping :). But isn’t it just adorable? I think that the cup and me, we were meant to be. I dream about all the delicious cappuccino and tea it will be filled with. And talking about brew… these days I’ve been experimenting a bit in the tea arena and I’ve tried this: one bag of Earl Grey tea plus one bag of Pickwick Chai Tea plus sugar plus a little bit of milk… this all in one cup equals heaven! HEAVEN!!

I wish you a splendid day!

See you soon!

Love,
Petra

 

The Strangest Rule

(Photography Project 365 – Day 50)

I have noticed a rule. A rule that keeps appearing in my life. Again and again and again… Always!

So I ask… Why is it that no matter how much yarn I have in my stash at home I always miss that one particular color that I ‘need’? The one that is in my favorite yarn store? The store where there’s this lovely mug store on the way there? And a lovely flower shop too? This is what I ask.

Have you observed a similar pattern repeating in your life?

This is strange.

Love,
Petra
