OMG hard to believe we left in this snow/ice storm on February 6th.
Has been already over a month ago that we where in Florida enjoying that sooooo beautiful sunshine every day by +24 to 28 and water at +16 . I was swimming in it every day on and on….just so perfect.
Sunset right by the beach every night…I am still looking for the star in that evening sky every night, my start always full of love and happy moments walking in the water looking for the shells. Even thought I could not bring home some of the coral that washed up on the shore…..nooo noooo you can’t do that!!
My fun moments taking pictures of birds flying by…or posing for me.
Smiles Yes “I am a bigger kid then You thought I am” …smiles that is me. Always will be that way…That is my Life, my Love, my life of happiness.
More then I am That is me.
Sleeping on the balcony hearing the waves crushing onto the shore.
Seeing the stars and full moon.
Hearing the birds in the morning waking me up….My Dream always.
I’ll never forget that kind of feeling of Peace.
So I had a order for 4 skeins in a very deep plum colour. To be exact, it had to be the same as the top 2 skeins. I am very happy I was able to recreate the same colour and strength in the bottom 4 skeins as I have in the top 2.
Then decided to play around with 4 skeins of Fingering weight in a deep plum but much more with light to dark shades in same skeins. I am in love with this look and can’t wait to see them knit up.
So colourful, it make s me happy just looking at all the fun colours.
This Jelly Roll Rug is made with only 20 strips so half of a full Jelly Roll.
Typically the Jelly Rolls have 42-45 strips of 2.5″ in a roll at about $52 to $59 per roll. Then you will need the batting that you can use either the already cut into strips at 2.5″or you cut your strips from the meter cut batting available in most quilting stores. I used Aurafil Thread for this and a Jeans 14 Needle.
Off to the sewing and yes picture-taking I go and after a full 7 hours this was finished. Measuring 83 cm x 46 cm
The pattern comes in oval, round and in rectangle too. My first one I sewed up was really just a practice one with using up bits and pieces of fabrics I had stashed.
This one I just opened up the roll and sewn together as it was in the roll.Love this Australian fabric.
Oh no, how time has gone by since my last post.
I kind of got side tracked by posting on Facebook. How could I, you may ask? Well it seems to be much easier to do that with my phone.
Yes, I know I can do blog-posts on the phone too. But it seem to be a little more tedious for someone like me that is not so computer oriented. LOL
So we all had the Fall season come and go… see some of my pictures from the fall.
Well guess what, we had minus 17 on November 22nd. A brisk walk through the local park that morning and again at night, so beautiful.
Then some more snow here and there…gurr with rain right after that.
All snow gone again. What? You say we are in winter? Normal we would be into deep winter with Christmas just past, Guess again!!! Yesterday was December 28th. A usually very cold winter day here in Canada. ..BUT not yesterday!
Believe it or not we had a temperature of “+11” .Yes plus 11 degrees. People where walking around in short sleeves… (not me).Don’t think it have seen that before in my 34 years here in Canada!
So today I woke up to – 9, ladida yes minus 9. very drastic change in temperature. I am So glad we can’t change the weather.
Enjoy the last view days of 2018 and many thanks for stopping by here on my Blog during the past years. I truly hope to be more active in the New Year.
With more posts and KnitswissYarns aswell as pattern releases here and on Ravelry.
Looking forward to seeing You again in 2019
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU
Truly happy and loving this “Flower Power” Coat
Coat is finally finished. Smiles, it only took me 4 summers to knit up.
Wow… You may say, but being fingering weight, needles 2.25 mm and in a black as you can see for most of the knitting. I really needed good lighting and the best was, sunlight outside in my backyard. Then the challenge of cutting the front open, something we knitters call “Steeking” and picking up stitches to bind the front edge…woha, a little nerve-racking. Only because I already invested that many year of knitting into the coat. Really did not want to muck this part up…Yes perfect all great.
You can see the inside of the coat is just a beautiful as the ousie..smile.
The pattern and yarn are from Christel Seyfarth Shetland Lambswool she has some stunning and beautiful designs.
As I have shortened this jacket I had to modify some areas. So it is not true version of her coat. Therefore I have lots of yarn left. for some other project. Then I still have a foul box of her yarn for another coat of shawl..
Probably 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
Totally love this purse idea as the name
indicates, one purse with many looks. Sew up one main inner bag and then just make several outer covers.
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.
