Greetings, dear friends!

I hope you’ve all had a very lovely weekend.

We spent ours at a beautiful and magnificent lake in Austria. I took a few pictures to share with you.

Enjoy the summer deliciousness!

Tequila Sunrise

tequila-sunrise-recipe

I am sure each of you has a favorite cocktail.

Mine is Tequila Sunrise. It has been this way ever since I can remember… Was I six when I first drank it? Or seven?

Nah! Nine!

Hehe, joking all the way… I was ten!

🙂

See? This happens to a person when she taste-tests a cocktail since early morning. Joking, joking, endless joking – that’s all she does.

And now back to our serious business… what I love about this cocktail? Well, I can definitely tell you… it is sweet and ME LIKE SWEET, it is not too strong on the alcohol, the amount of orange juice makes it extremely refreshing, the pomegranate syrup that is included adds a really lovely and interesting taste to it all… and last but not least, I love how this drink looks – just like sunrise… and I LOVE sunrise.

It truly is yummy…

New Pattern – Sweet Crochet Coasters

crochet-pattern-crochet-coasters

We are enjoying a pretty hot summer here in the heart of Europe these days.

Hot summer means cool drinks. And cool drinks mean colorful and sweet coasters.

That’s what I told to myself the other day and enthusiastically started to create a new crochet coaster design – The Sweet Crochet Coasters.

And here’s the result.

I made quite a few.

I like them a lot.

What I probably like the most is how colorful and fresh they look.

I used a scrumptious pure cotton yarn to make them. Working with natural, cooling and colorful yarn is the best thing ever, especially in the summer!

Of course, I’ve put a pattern together for you to enjoy. You can find it and learn more about it in my SHOP.

Enjoy your summer crafting!

New Pattern – Crochet Hairy Monster Cell Phone Cover

crochet-pattern-hairy-monster-cell-phone-cover

I am happy to introduce the Hairy Monster to you today!

A very happy Hairy Monster it is, I would say.

I created it just recently to dress up my phone a bit… because every proper phone needs cute and colorful clothes, right?

I have to admit that I sneak a look at my phone very frequently these days, even if it is not ringing or there’s nothing else going on. I just love to see the cute hair and that weird precious face.

Makes me smile every time.

And on top of that, the Hairy Monster protects my phone perfectly.

Love,
Petra
