Hello!! How nice of you to stop by. I don’t know if you do the same, but every morning after waking up, I’m stupid enough to look in the mirror. Usually not a very pretty sight. But this morning; I really looked like a very scary scarecrow.
Yesterday, I wanted to say goodnight to my son, and while he moved towards me, I came his way, and guess what: bang! So now I have a cut eyebrow, and a blue eye.
Just to be safe, we went to the doctor yesterday evening. He glued my eyebrow, so now I have to wear a little tape for 5 days. Most difficult was to leave two very upset teenage boys at home. They were already in bed and had to go to sleep. And at a moment like that, they really are small and don’t want to be left alone. Hard for a mom!
Now some nice stuff. Remember the Blue Hexagons I showed a couple of weeks ago? They finally reached their destination, so now I can show you what I did with them.
I added a round with white and crocheted them together.
Found some matching fabric, and sewed it all together into:
Inside the bag I made two pockets, and it closes with a button. The hardest part was figuring out how to make half hexagons.
Now on my table: another pair of skirt guards. This time in a completely different colour scheme. The lady asked for brown and turquoise. I think brown is a very difficult colour to work with. It’s easy to make something boring with it, and I find it very hard to come up with an exciting colour combination.
First I made this swatch.
Brown and turquoise, but very massive. So this week I got the definite order and I started to crochet, but somehow I picked different colours and this is what happened.
Still brown and turquoise, but with the light pink shades it became a very light, happy skirt guard. I love this one and I can only hope the customer does too.
