Perfect Water Droplets

img_4971Probably one of the last nice hot summer evenings outside in my backyard with +28.

Cut the grass put water on some plants. Even racked up the dead grass.

So now enjoying a peaceful evening with a glass of wine and looking for some great pictures.

I have one for sure I absolutely love water droplets on plants. But what about mushrooms growing on a log? Or even a plant we call clover that we don’t need I. The grass or garden. Beautiful too

Have a wonderful evening

A Reason To Be ‘ME”

IMG_4865“Everybody got their reason, everybody got there ways”.

So why are we posting blog posts, one my ask?

Well I enjoy showing You, my followers and readers what is Me. The things I like and do in a day or week, perhaps months or years…

Days in the week I work at my job where I get a pay cheque. I absolutely love to help our customers. You need help with fabric selections, just let me know.  Totally love tho put them together for You. Here I get to talk to people that like to be creative too.

The rest of my days are spent doing things for our family / daughter, our home and garden. Our myself, smiles.  This all is absolutly the Best part of my moments spend in a day. Being there for them “My Family”

Wow I tell You I have pictures on my phone….So handy to have these cell phones now a days!

Haha, some say I could be one of the spooks person for the Market & Co that just opened up its doors at Upper Canada Mall.

So here is where the networking and my Blog, Facebook, Instagram and all the other apps I am part of comes in to place. My creative side enjoys to show You what I have worked on, this may not always be knitting;-). Even though that has been my passion for so long. You can see sewing results for last years. Our garden is my peacefull moments. My Family is my Love. Traveling I wish I coud do more with my hubby.

My connections to You all, I Totally love!

Enjoy the comments and connections I have with some of You. Yes agree one has to be aware of the “bad” connections on some apps. I say use common sence and be aware not everything or everyone  is at it seems.

Where am I going with this?

  I just love to be ME and enjoy to show You my part of this WORLD.

So Be Happy And Never Forget To Be KIND!

Thank You

Versatile Wave Purse

IMG_4904Totally love this purse idea as the name

“Versatile Wave”

indicates, one purse with many looks. Sew up one main inner bag and then just make several outer covers.

IMG_4917

With that said even with just one outer cover you can have 2 different looks. See my pictures, one is floral and the other is abstract print. Same main bag with two liners heach opposite.

Love how this designer “Susan Rooney” gives us this perfect written and illustrated  pattern.

With mine, I find that either the outer section could be sewn together with 1/4 ” seem  instead with 5/8″ as my inner main bag seem to be a slight bit too big for the outer cover.

 

 

 

Overall this pattern is well worth the purchase and creating Your “One Of A Kind” Purse… You should come and see me at my work place I can give you all the ideas on fabric selections if you need some help with that. I love to help you and be creative. Only promise is …Smile You have to come and show me the end result. Totally love to see it :-)

Oh and I forgot to say, You can also just use the inner bag to go into any other purse you have without ever having to transfer allll the may special items you carry along in you bag…LOL if your like me You will have many.

Dehydrated Tomates

 

 

IMG_4571

Love the rich red colour of these tomatoes.

It is all around us right now the ripe fruits and vegetables are an indication of the end of summer season.  Apples, peaches, pears, corn, cabbages and yes tomatoes.

I am luck to have this Holland Marsh  wetland close by well about 20 minutes driving distance from my home.  As per their website “Produce selections range from more traditional crops such as carrots, onions and celery, to more diverse options like Chinese broccoli, Asian radish, and water spinach”.  So a lot of the vegetables I believe are coming from there to our local store that I have right around my home.

I also have a knitting / sewing friend that grows carrots and onions right in Holland Marsh. Luck for me I have been getting a bag here and their from her and her husband. With the onions  I make this amazing yummy onion soup. Carrots are great for carrot cake or soup too.

So since yesterday I have been dehydrating 3 baskets full of tomatoes so my hubby can take them on his up-coming hike to  Munising Falls Michigan (Pictured Rocks) with his hiking friends.

Have a great September to all of you.

I may have to do the same with apples soon

Reaching Out To Fellow Bloggers

IMG_4166Just like many of you, I have been on WordPress for many years too.

And I was wondering if I could ask You for some input…

At the beginning lets say about 10 years ago, I started postings so my parents in Switzerland could see what I am working on here in Canada. Some of you may know I also posted each post in English and German to make it easy for them and German-speaking readers.
Since my dad past, I kind of stopped the German posting as one can switch to have it translated.

Unfortunately my mom doesn’t understand how to use the computer but enjoys to Skype with me.

So here is where I am reaching out to You.

I am doing pretty much what you are doing. Perhaps it is the topics that I am posting. Everyone loves food but not everyone can enjoy the knitting etc.
I used to comment and like a lot of other posts by Bloggers and WordPress post. With the Blogger sits I often had to do the posting over and over again as it just would not go through and needed all the passwords etc. found that very time-consuming, and often the comments did not go through. So I lost interest in doing this….sorry.
As well as it felt that I “liked” and “commented” but not really got any reply back…..

I know I should say oh well why do I worry about that?

Since I love to see your posts and like to show you my work and enjoy helping others..it is my passion to be creative.

But that doesn’t stop me from wondering sometimes what do fellow bloggers do to get the comments on sometimes a very simple post, or even just a picture and one sentance?
I don’t believe I have to pay for that or sign up with a services.

 I believe my posts should be from what I believe in and how I see my KnitswissYarns Blog. So I just keep on doing what I love and have fun …..the passion continues…

Have a wonderful weekend and if by chance you feel like sending me some info where I can improve my posts …you know what to do….smiles send me a note.

I do care and I thank you for feedback…

Jacqueline
