Crochet Snowman

Hello dear friends!

I hope that you are all doing fine.

I am confirming that I am still here, and crocheting… Always!

Actually, I would like to show you my latest creation, a crochet snowman. Ta-dah!

I’ve had this snowman kind of idea in my mind for quite some time, I think I’d even mentioned it in one of my posts here on this blog a couple of years ago, posting a picture of a snowman just being made… Well, that one never got finished, just until now.

Having a little boy now, I thought it could be sweet to make something unique for him this winter.

So, a snowman was born.

And my baby (well, almost 3 years old baby) likes his new toy friend very very much – he just grabs him by the hat and off they go together… 🙂

My plan was to make it rather tall. Using an Aran weight yarn (Red Heart Soft) and a 4.5 mm hook it turned out to be almost 18 inches (45 cm) tall.

In case you wonder about the pattern… I do have it written down on paper, I just need to make slight changes, transfer it to my computer, take step-by-step pictures… and then I will surely share it with you. Once it’s all done I will let you know here on this blog.

And now I am rushing to make 2 more, one the same size, one even bigger. Our living room (which is more like a play room now) just needs them… I think 🙂

Thank you for letting me share!

I am wishing you a lot of peace and joy during this beautiful time of year.

With lots of love,

Petra ♡

 

A Great White Show

We had a big snowstorm here in the heart of Europe a couple of days ago.

It was magnificent!

The snowflakes were so huge, possibly the biggest I have seen. Ever! I’ve read that it had something to do with the air humidity. And what I loved about this nature’s show the most was that I could watch it from behind the window of my warm home office, without even letting my nose out. I really adore the view here.

I snapped a few pictures to share with you…

Enjoy!

It’s All So Quiet (Photography Project 365 – Day 17)

Look what happened today!

A. LOT. OF. SNOW.

Wow!

I love a lot of snow in January. It feels just right. Also, I really like the deep quiet a snowfall brings. Have you noticed?

Greetings from the heart of Europe!

Love,

Left Alone In Wonderland

A Wonderland – that’s the most precise word coming to my mind when I want to describe this unbelievable scenery.

A wonderful wonderland.

My heart is singing with joy when I look at this picture.

We were lucky to see all this beauty during our yesterday’s trip – the one of the “let’s-just-go-somewhere” kind.

Me, naturally, being armed with a camera – like a true blogger should always be.

And when I noticed the wonderful scenery emerging in front of our eyes I demanded my boyfriend to stop the car – right there, right then.

Which turned out to be not so smart…

Because no matter how hard my sweet darling was trying to make our car move again – the slippery snow was against him.

So he decided to… to… I wasn’t so sure actually what he decided to do.

All I heard was something like: “Can’t go… must go… down.”

And then I saw this…

And this…

And this.

Bye-bye my lovely sweet red car – you were cozy and warm inside.

Bye and have a nice life… without me!

So there I am standing – alone in the silence.

Silence – except this one strange sound coming from a nearby forest.

The only thought in my head being – was that a bear?

‘Time for some action,’ – I told to myself – ‘let’s suppose my BF is waiting for me somewhere down the hill’.

So down I went…

After a while I see him going up – but, of course, not stopping to pick me up.

What kind of a wicked game are we playing here?

Ha?

So up I went  – hoping my boyfriend was not punishing me for all the bad stuff I had done to him so far.

Luckily, there’s this special and very precious thing about me that I really love.

It always saves me when I find myself in a stressful situation – which is like every five minutes.

That highly valued thing being my unbelievably short attention span.

It makes the thoughts in my brain change at the speed of light.

Believe me!

So worried or not – there was this wonderful branch that I started to admire.

Which left no more space in my head for anything else.

And then there was this.

Do you see that magical church framed by the branches?

Amazing!

Oh, there he is!

He is the dearest, he would never leave me here.

‘HEEEEY!’

‘I am HERE’ – I started to scream running up the hill.

‘Wait for MEEEEEE!’

‘Don’t leave me here alone, PLEASE!’

And he did (leave her there).

Not!

He picked her up so that they could live happily ever after.

The End.
