So.. after a week of not knitting and preparing for the craft fair, I got a text message yesterday that the fair was postponed to next week because of the bad weather! I'm still a bit perplexed by it, and I'm wondering how many people will show up today, not having heard about the postponement.

Anyhoo, I did put my items up on our cupboard for the time being.. Looks like a happy bunch, right?

Treasury Tuesday

Bonjour! How are you? How was your Monday? And your Tuesday?

Yesterday was a fun day for me because I had been chosen to be featured in the treasury making of SELF TAUGHT ARTISTS TEAM members! Over twenty treasuries were made! So I'm dubbing today's post Treasury Tuesday, to showcase some of the wonderful treasuries made!

YoP Update

* moshi moshi! * How are you today?

We have had such a busy week, we're still moving and decorating and I've been putting all my craft supplies into our new cabinet.. I'm not yet finished, but I'm definitely doing a post this week showing you my craft supply organization so far! Today's post is about the crafting ^_^

Last week I started on the little knitted gift bags, and here they are now:

WIP Wednesday - Knitting and Sewing

Happy WIP Wednesday everyone! How's your week so far?

I have been knitting, trying to finish my first YoP project little knitted gift bag. I decided to change colors in between which required a bit of improvising since I forgot how to do that, but I think it went okay. I only need to make the drawstring and maybe put some embellishments on the baggy. And I started a second one!

Fairy Pink Monday

Hello you. Today's weather has been awful. Just.. grey and windy, and the rain came pouring down. I hope your weather has been a bit better. If so, could you please send some sunshine our way?

I needed a pick-me-up when coming home, and this treasury made by Zehra from boutiqueseragun did just that! It's called Fairy Pink, and my newly listed Pink & White Cloud Garland was featured in it!

YoP - Getting Started with my DPNs

Hello and a happy Sunday to you!

A big thanks to everyone who's been so friendly to welcome me on board of YoP and even giving me advice how and where to begin on my knitting adventure! Is it bad that I want to add all your suggested projects to my list? Uh-oh.. It's been one week, and the adding to the list has started already..

I haven't been able to do a lot of knitting at all. I don't know if you've seen my post that we were selling our couch and buying a new one, but I'm beginning to think we've kind of spun out of control a little bit.. In a few weeks time we have bought new chairs, a bench a new couch & loveseat, a daybed, two little tables and two new cupboards/cabinets. Both cabinets had to be put together, and we're sore from all the lifting!

Flower Rattle Crochet Pattern

Hi you guys!

Is it Tuesday evening already? I have the feeling this week's gonna whizz by.
Today I'm releasing my flower rattle pattern. Or better yet, I just finished publishing it on Ravelry and Etsy!

Neutrals and Naturals

Hey you. How was your weekend?

Fiané and me decided we needed new dining room chairs, as our old ones are 10years old and definitely showing their age! We then decided we want a new couch too, so we're selling our current couch.

As you can see, we like our neutrals. No, we LOVE our neutrals! Scroll down for some more great neutrals finds!

To YoP or not to YoP

Hi everyone!

"To YoP or not to YoP" that is the question. I know I really want to join year 4, and I was planning to, but for the last couple of weeks I've been having a bit of a setback with regards to my right hand/wrist. Yep, that's my crochet wrist. The days after I've been crocheting, my wrist feels achy and painful. (very sad face!) So I haven't been able to crochet very much..

So that's the reason I haven't joined in again..

Should I enter YoP4? If so, should I make a list with only knitting projects? I would love to boost my knitting skills, but won't I strain my wrist in the same way as with crochet?

I would love some feedback on my dilemma! I would also like to remind everyone: do your wrist exercises! Find a link to some useful tips here!
