2, and a little bit of spring in the snow

Favourite number two! Today I want to tell you about my favourite moment of the day. My family life is quite busy and hectic, and in the morning when everyone wakes up (or acts like it) and is having breakfast, it is more or less a war zone over here. So, after everyone has left for school or work, I clean after breakfast, I walk through the house and tidy up a bit, go outside for a walk with Fleur, and then………. then I have my favourite moment of the day. With a cup of coffee or tea, I switch on the computer and read some blogs, check Ravelry and dream about all the things I could do that day. It is a real me-moment, and I enjoy it every day!

When everyone is out, I am working on some more presents (I know, it is getting boring to hear me say that), and in the evenings I made a teacozy. Not just any cozy, but the most fabulous design I ever saw. Alice from Crochet with Raymond designed it, and  even wrote a tutorial about it.

It is called a Spring Explosion Teacozy, and of course that name is perfect. In this case, spring explosion in the snow! 

Groetjes, Dorien
