Flowers All Year Around

Summer is slowly coming to an end.
My children are preparing themselves for early morning wake-ups
and darker days. The thought of 5 o'clock mornings are exhausting me
already (laughs) Good thing there is strong coffee, I better stock up.
I am looking forward to the snuggles and cozy blankets coming out of
hiding again. Especially here in beautiful New England where winters truly
are chilly and (usually very) white ((heart))

 I thought it would be nice to make some bright and happy popcorn crochet flowers
to hang around the house. Adding a bit of *happy* to the rooms.
It is like having summer vibes all year around.

I love crocheting flowers!
Especially ones that pop up!

I made some extra and added a long flower garland to my shop, too!
I guess I am ready for Autumn and Winter now.

Live Life with Joy

Joy is a state of being, I suppose.
It can't really be found around me, or in others,
it seems to be more of feeling that is deeply rooted
within. A source that we tap into when we do the things
we love.
And suddenly there is joy and there is peace.
And it is always there, inside of us.
This is a painting I made whilst I was crocheting
at the same time, and instead of painting the main flower
I thought it would be nice to add a handmade crochet
flower. It is such a joy to be able to do three things I love, crocheting,
painting and lettering all at the same time.

Simple Happiness

Finding joy in everyday things.
Adding burst of colours and
sipping coffee.
Happiness can be so simple.

Busy table

I have a busy table in the middle of my home.
The more that is on it, the more it makes for happy feelings.
Lots of projects happening all at once. And the table gets quite a lot
of visitors joining in with even more projects.
I just love the sound of children around me, and the constant chat and sounds.
Quiet is not something that happens very often in my home.

This week I received this wonderful book in the post from my lovely friend Debs.
I am very grateful for having such sweet friends in my life (heart)

There was even a big plate of donuts this week! 
A home is not quite complete without some crazy calories.
I was definitely aiming for the cinnamon donut.......

My paintbox seems to have a permanent stay on my table.
I guess the lay out of the mess would be a bit odd without it.

And.... that's a wrap!

I finished my very first crochet grannysquare scarf!
A Winter-Wonderland-Wrap-Around!
Perfect for windy cold weather, and boy oh boy, we have plenty of
that around here.

Crochet Roll

Nothing like unrolling a happy cheerful crochet table runner to
cheer up a room to no end.

I made this table runner with fine 100% cotton, and it was a bit fiddly
to begin with. Cotton is not the easiest to work with, but my-oh-my
it does have the loveliest feel and weight to it.

It is definitely cheering up the room.
This can be used as a bed-runner, too.
Not sure if that is even the correct term for it.
Up and onwards.
I have a folders full of unfinished projects,
and this crochet malarkey is taking up too much of my time.

A little bit of this ....

I guess I just have not been able to make up my mind.
Will I paint? Will I do some lettering? Will I do some
more crocheting? Decisions decisions....


So why not just do them all at the same time, and put them
together on paper! ((heart))
 I have been thinking of making handmade cards.
Not sure if I have the time, but I would definitely love it.
Yes. It is a happy day x
