~ I love Pinterest and would like to make one thing every week that I find on
Pinterest. Since I have lots of pins (that, until now, I've just pinned
and only that), I hope this will be a way to reduce the amount of pins
on my boards. It can be anything, from cooking to crochet and from
sewing to paper crafts. Just small projects that don't take weeks to
Last week I told you about the Haasje look-a-like mug cozy I planned to make for Easter. Haasje, our Flemish Giant is my youngest daughter's bunny, so of course she wanted the mug cozy. I had to make it brown, though, just like Haasje.
My oldest daughter has a cat, Dolly (yes,
named after Dolly Parton, I'm a fan) and after making the bunny mug cozy above for my youngest, I remembered just in time a crochet cat I had pinned a while ago, because she really wants it. It's from Dr Seuss (pattern here).
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.
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.
