In a local craftstore in my
neighborhood I saw this colored wire a while ago and since I'm sort of a
magpie when it comes to shiny things, I've asked myself what I could
make from it ever since. Until I saw those wired quotes people buy to
hang on their walls. Nice for postcards, too, I thought. And here they
last time I posted here is more than half a year ago. A lot has changed
in the last months. We moved for example. Our house was too small for
the four of us for quite some time, especially because my husband likes
to do some home improvement himself, and slowly the house was filled
with tools and equipment more and more. So we needed a bigger house, one
with a yard large enough to build a large garage/barn.
started to look and in the meantime refreshed our home, so we could put
it up for sale. It was a rollercoaster. In the end we found the house
we wanted and bought it before we even sold our former house, but as
soon as we put our former house on the market, it was sold. I was sad
and happy at the same time. Happy because it was sold so fast. There
were a lot of potential buyers, so people liked the house as much as we
did. But I was sad to leave the house. I loved our house and all the
efforts we've put into it in the twelve years we lived there.
Last week I saw this nice book, called Haken & Kleur (meaning Crochet & Color in Dutch; here's the blog of one of the authors with a link to where you can buy the book), full of crochet patterns. I bought it and after just a little bit of paging my choice fell on the Fly Curtain. I só need a fly curtain. When I do not close my door my house is invaded by flies, mosquitoes, bees and wasps.
I started to crochet, but when the weather got better and better the amount of bugs in my house increased faster and faster, so I had to speed up my crocheting. But here's my bug remedy, just in time for summer.
Last weekend we celebrated my youngest daughter's birthday for family and friends and this week her own friends from school will come over for a little party. As told it's unicorns all over this year and because most of the festivities will take place in the kitchen, I tried my best to draw a nice unicorn on the black board that we have on the kitchen door.
