In the summer vacation of 2016 I made my first mochila. That first one was just to practice and now that we're a year further, I think my mochila making skills are improved a little bit. In this year some people asked me to make a bag for them, too. The best assignment was the one from a boots and bags shop owner, who asked me to make two bags for her, in exchange for a couple of boots at choice. No cheap boots to find in her shop, so I considered it a great deal when she let me choose some beautiful Tony Lama boots. I still love them.
This month I made another mochila. I love the colors of these boots, so I chose the same colors for the bag.
A couple of weeks ago I crocheted a pillow cover saying the words Sweet Home Sweet, as you may have seen. I found the idea at The Purl Bee and liked the idea of cross stitching on something that's crocheted so much, that I tried another pillow. I used the same stitch (it's made of only single crochets) to create the same netting like pattern to cross stitch on and after that searched for a Rose Pattern. This how it turned out. Pretty nice, I think!
Finally, finally, fi-nal-ly I finished my Peppermint Skirt (in the original pattern it's a LARGE throw), which I started making this summer. I hate projects that take lots of time, but this one looked so very nice that I just had to make it. So I started happily and crocheted for some days in a row, but than boredom came in, I saw something else I wanted to make and the throw found a home in the corner of the living room, hidden in a plastic bag, together with the hook and the yarn. But I really wanted to have it for X-mas, so with a lot of unwillingness I started again and finished it yesterday! Just in time!!
