Pink Swarovski

Pink-shaded Swarovski crystals 
combined with white glass beads (rocailles)
make this crochet necklace a nice
accessoire for summer outfits.

Old Favourite Pattern

I have two old patterns that were published in a TV magazine over more than two decades ago.

The timeless (or shall I say re-occurring) simple design made me treassure the original page of the magazine and having back up copies in all kind of formats thanks to our digitale age.

You can imagine that I've used the mill and the farmer's wife pattern in various of my projects.

<--- Here on the left you can see one of the pot holders.

Since there is a natural limitation on how many pot holders one can use at a time I took the same pattern for a cross stitch mounted in a picture frame.

It makes a nice matching accessory for the kitchen wall.

Sparkly Dots

I made this necklace in a bit of a hurry.
(Just finished in time!)

It is crocheted using small metallic-coloured Rocailles (glass seed beads)
with a few silver beads as sparkly dots.
Similar glass bead necklaces are available in the shop.

And what is a better birthday present 
than a bag full of chocolate ???

With your own name on it!

Quite a while ago (read: years) I made this little fellow.
He's one of the Fimbles.

ZigZag Blanket

In March I mentioned that I was busy making a baby blanket
Luckily I choose the right colours
as it turned out to be a gorgeous little girl :-)

My new Wild Moths labels arrived just in time
to get attached to the new blanket.

And it was the first time I crocheted a zigzag design.

Mission accomplished. Phew.
