A season to inspire
I got one of my favorite magazines and I was reading it without a break!
A lot of ideas for fall decoration, knitting and baking, the photos were so inspiring:
It is time to get the needles, some yarn and feel comfortable sitting inside and making something nice to wear during the cold months!
The change in depth of colors brings a nice cozy feeling!
And before it got grey and breezy, we went for a walk in the woods.
The colors of the leaves are slowly changing…
Some nice (and poisonous?) ones:
And tiny little flowers : (don’t they look like butterflies?)
But I had a lot of things to get done for the craft market!
Every single minute was spent in the sewing room, quite some busy days I tell you! That explains my absence during the last week and the chaos here…
Everything is packed and set for tomorrow! And although it is supposed to be windy and rainy (ohhhh….) I hope it won’t prevent the visitors from coming. It is a very nice market with a lot of different artisans who show how their work is done (turnery, pottery, glass blower, etc) . I’m with others in the old half-timbered house where the visitors can sit down and have a cup of coffee or tea and eat delicious homemade cakes and pies. The women from the “grandma’s kitchen” all wear clothes from the last century which gives a nice atmosphere like one is back in time.
I’ve made some place mats and coasters using fabric with coffee motifs. Although I prefer to drink tea, I always end up buying fabrics with coffee!
Cappuccino and coffee beans: ( but where is the chocolate?…)
I took a photo of this one, but it was still not finished ( and I forgot the table runner, it is almost like this one):
I’ll try to take some pictures of the market this time!
Some of you wrote me asking for the instructions for the potholders. It is quite simple!
Easy Potholder Directions
Materials you need:
50 gm cotton yarn for one potholder
crochet hook 4.00
Ch = chain
Sc = single crochet (British = Double crochet)
R = row
Make 12 ch and join into a ring with a slip stitch. Work 18 sc into a ring, join the round with a slip stitch and work 1 ch to turn.
R1 (right side): 1 sc into each of the next 4 sc, 3 sc into next sc (center sc), 1 sc into each of next 4 sc, 1 ch, turn.
R2: inserting hook into the back loop of sc work 5 sc, 3sc in center,5 sc, 1 ch, turn.
Repeat row 2 increasing the number of sc worked and working 3 sc into each center sc until side edges measure about 20 cm. Fasten off.
That’s all! I think you’ll get “hooked” like I did!
Have a lovely weekend!
