Diva hat

Picture from
Knitting Kit: "Diva de Lux hue m /riller", 874801 by Permin. A very quick hat to make, looks good too! A little gold in the yarn will look good when we get closer to Christmas time. The kit is recommended!                                                                                                                                                                               The colors of the ornamental cabbage plant is pritty in fall. Love all seasons, and to explore them with my camera.

Home again!

A great and varied vacation this year, came back refreshed and with some new stash; several handbag fabric and accessories, Christmas raffle projects and some fabric with horse print. First we went to the north of Norway with the midnight sun.
Hawaii, snorkeling with sea turtles, glowing volcanoes and beautiful flowers.
Then to Wisconsin to see family. I did not get much progress on my English paper piecing, but I finished a pair of pot holders for my dear sister in law.
Pattern: Crochet for the Kitchen By Tove Fevang ( pattern slightly adjusted)
A good tutorial on tunisian crochet.
Yarn: Cotton Time by Schahenmeyer, cream and coral. A good yarn that does not split while crocheting!
I am a cat person, but this puppie got to me!

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....
