Mushrooms After Storm

IMG_9888After we had a nice view days doing things around the house over the Labour Day Weekend…part of hurricane Harvey must have made its way up to us …with rain and Thunder. So the grounds are all wet this Tuesday Morning.  A perfect day to doing some more cleaning I thought and getting ready for the colder season again.

So as I am waiting for the water to drain from Hot Tub ….I noticed a cluster of beautiful Mushrooms had grown on our front walk way…so delicate and pretty.

See how only 20 minutes of lighting makes a difference in the picture ….and one hour later they are all drying up and shriveled up looking…..I guess by noon they are gone again…

So two hours have past since I started this post ….and you should see how black the sky is right now…..lol I am getting soaked by rain and hail….

Berner Oberland Pullover

ANPT-Winter-2016-berner-oberland-cabled-pullover_Página_3_Imagen_0001-1Oh nooo….I just noticed, as I was adding the Berner Oberland Pullover

I looks like I totally neglected to show you one of my latest pattern published in A Needle Pulling Thread in the Winter 2016/2017 issue that was published in April 2017 .

Available in three different sizes and knit in worsted weight yarn. I love working with cables and try to add one in all my designs.

If you like you can purchase the pattern though the link above

 

Raindrops

IMG_9701 (3)So you said it is raining again…well yes we have had a fair share of rain this spring and yes summer…Thunderstorms are usually here too.

So the one good thing is the grass …well the weeds are growing like mad.

 

I always have had a interrest in taking water droplet picture in the hope one day I can see the reflection of me in them …no luck so far. Or I just have not mastered the technic of this yet. I am hopeful one day I get it right.

But here I think these pictures are not to bad….really love the spiderweb and the funny end bloom of the Clematis flower.

 

 

Also genug mit dem Regenwetter … gut ist es schon doch haben in diesem Frühjahr einen fairen Anteil an Regen gehabt und ja immer noch obwohl es Sommer ist! Gewitter kommen halt auch dazu. Lach das Gras … sowie die Unkräuter wachsen wie wild.

Ich habe immer ein Interesse an Wassertropf und bin in der Hoffnung eines Tages die Reflexion von mir in eine Regentropfe zu sehen. … kein Glück so weit. Oder ich habe die Technik noch nicht beherrscht. 

Diese Bilder sind aber recht gut  … das Spinnennetz und die  ende Blüte der Clematis Blume gefallen mir besonders gut.IMG_9707

Fresh Rhubarb

File 2017-05-17, 12 40 02 PMYes finally something fresh again from my garden….Rhubarb is ready for some good stuff. I love to make this flan we call “Weihe” in Switzerland. So yummy and soooo easy to make too. File 2017-05-17, 12 39 45 PM

Make a pastry from flour, butter, water, vinegar and salt. Let it rest for about 1 hour in fridge. Roll the pastry out and place in backing dish, add the cut up rhubarb. Place in oven for 10 min. Now add the egg,milk and sugar mix to the flan backing in oven  for another 45 min or till egg mixture is solid.

Ohhh sooo yummy

 

Yehh ALL Quilted

2017-01-27-08-54-28As promised here is the picture of my fished

“Log Cabin Quilt”

All done in light, medium and dark Orange Cotton Fabric and light, medium and dark gray Cotton fabric.

See previous post on this Log Cabin Quilt here!

Love, Love, Love these colours!!!

For the back I used this black soft and heavy Sued Minky  fabric we have at the moment at The Quilt Store  Sooo soft and cuddly great for any winter!

I free motion quilted this Queen Size 90″x 91″on the HQ Fusion at the store too … It is amazing what all the longarm machines can do when you program the patterns into them and have IT do the quilting. However, I myself like to work it in free motion so it is truly all done by my hands….well just not “hand sewn” I know ….smiles enjoy  ahh and as for the binding. That is my absolute favourite last thing on the Quilt …Really like sewing binding on…just like my grandmother was sewing the napkins for soooo many, many decades.2016-12-30-17-33-29

And if you really like this queen size quilt and like to buy it from me….just send me a note!

You should see the rocks and the crevasses, many covered with all kinds of moss.  Just love all the little things I see when taking time to look. Perfect moment.

Some Olive Oil, two onions chopped up, some celery also chopped up, garlic of course, ginger, soften all up first……now the tomatoes and just one cup of water and fresh Basile that my girlfriend had growing in her garden.
