Spring?

Phone Box After a period of dry and sunny weather, it’s been all change since Friday. On Sunday we got this and temperatures hover around 3-7 degrees celsius. Not exactly my idea of spring.

Stitch Markers

stitch markersYesterday I made some stitch markers from materials I bought in Berlin. It proved to be a bit more difficult than I thought, especially to make a loop from the headpin to fit into the hole of the bead and to ensure that the bead can’t move up. Therefore these are not as perfect as the ones you can see in Andre Sue’s Etsy shop, but they are my first ones and I like the beads.

Shelter from the rain

I have been quiet for some time because too many things required attention in the offline world, one of which was a trip to Germany (Berlin). I am back now, busy with things around house and garden and the new seasons of Craft Markets in our village. I still haven’t done the dyeing of yarn with onion skin, but have spun up some yarn to start on that little project soon. In between there is time for short and longer walks. In an area without many trees our slightly damaged phone box could provide shelter from the rain.
