A picture - a moment

Weekend Doings

I got this squirrel picture with my cell phone this morning - a moment. I was sitting by the kitchen table, and he got up really close. My husband put up a small three right outside the window and hung up some bird food, a great way to see birds and other little creators up close. My cat also love this, he sits in the window- shaking all over..

Knitted Juggling Balls


My son wanted som juggling balls, and voila!
Great project for using up your scrap yarn! I used pattern from the book "55 Christmas Books to knit" by Arne and Carlos.
Here is a free pattern too! Wanna try? Here is some help learning how to juggle balls. It is a good activity when taking a break in the office!

Scrumptious Candy Dish pillows


Pattern is Candy Dish by Jaybird Quilts. The blocks where cut using the Hex N More Ruler. The fabric line  used was Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.
The pattern and fabric was purchased at Katrines Quilte Stue in Oslo. I have plenty of fabric leftover. Unsure what to make next....

Linking up to TGIFF at Devoted Quilter.

Pot Holders


This is my first product in a tecnique new to me; tunisian crochet /railway knitting
I also crocheted scallops along the edges, also a first time for me. Not perfect, but it was fun, I will make more!
I used cotton yarn Schachenmayr Cotton Time; which was a good choice. The cotton yarn did not split, and it is washable. I used a chrochet hook 5mm from Knit Pro with a cord.
The pattern is from a norwegian book called "Hekling og hakking til kjøkkenet" by Tove Fevang. The book is now available in a cheaper version in the grocery store magazine shelf!

This is when my 16 year old son started to give me a hard time....
