Crochet Tea Towels

What a great way to use up left over cotton yarn or yarn from stash.

I have used about 500 g of yarn so far - yeeha!
I found one of my baskets with yarn and discovered several skeins of cotton yarn and left overs.

Then I decided to use only the yarn from the basket -
(...I know, I have several skeins of cotton yarn in another basket).

A fun crochet project - a great way to de-stash and it is a challenge to only use certain colors.

Peachy Tuesday

My last day of the easter break has been full of cheerful colors.
I wanna show you a glimpse from my day.

Peachy vintage flowers from Rosehip.
I love Beatas work so much.
I have followed her blogs for years now.
It always make me smile, when I visit her blog and see all the cheerful colors and prints, she uses in her work.

I will use the peachy vintage flowers for a spring quilt.
You can always use one more quilt!

I bought my first spring flower today.
My favorite - more will come soon!

Yesterday I did my first page for my Midori.
I made this page to remind me of our Easter trip last week.
My Midori purchase opens a hole new world to me and I can't wait to get the last two inserts.

After I ordered the inserts, I found a lot of tutorials and DIY's about making your own Midori inserts.

I'm so exited to get started, 
but first I must have a new paper trimmer.

Patchwork Tuesday

One baby girl quilt for sale.
Feel free to email me if you are interested.

13,5 x 13,5 cm squares for a new quilt.
It's not a baby quilt this time, so I need a lot of squares:-)

...later the same day -
165 squares are now ready to mix and match.
It took me some time to get so far.

A few hours home alone in the kitchen.
I enjoy the hand sewed part of the needle books.
Every single stitch.

When the needle book is done, I will go for a walk, alone.
This Monday is a damn good day.

A month of giving

My friend, Vibeke, celebrates March with
"A Month of giving" and she invited me to join.

Todays blogpost is about me - 
and you can even win some of my work.

I hope, you see you there!

A Butterfly in my Hair is one of my favorite blogs -
it's worth visiting.

Paper and paint

A gift from my friend, Marie-Louise (you find her on instagram too, malou_djuurhuus).
She is a great inspiration to me, when it comes to paper work.

Marie-Louise told me about Ashley Godberg, Studio Calico, so now I'm also playing with paint and paper.

I decided to buy the paint.plan.play online classroom
 at Studio Calico.

It's a new world to me and it's fun.
I can't wait to try embossing, thanks for inspiring me, M-L.

Feel free to share tips or inspiration for paper work, painting, stamping and more.

Knit Inspiration

I have added new yarn to my stash.
A good friend of mine invited me to dye yarn with her.
This is my first collection - I hope, it's not the last one!
The bright colours remind me of the upcoming spring time!

I have knitted a vest for a cute little boy named August.
I like to add a little contrast detail, so I used neon orange thread for the buttons.

For my birthday last week my hubby surprised me with a gift from a new Danish knit and crochet company named Kit Couture.
I got the most wonderful red scissor and some knitting needles.

I'm already a big fan of Kit Couture. Their style is so simple and delicate.

I better finish the sweater on the knitting needles, so I can start a new project. 

I'm knitting a sweater from Sandnes, magazine 1414 Tweed & Co.
I knit with dark blue and grey yarn - I need a spring project in cheerful colours.

If you are looking for knit inspiration, you should have a look at Sandnes website. There's a lot of inspiring new knit magazines.

Do you have some knit inspiration, you want to share....?
