Small hazelnuts..

Fall is just around the corner and it’s time to find and collect the hazelnuts.I wanted to make a pattern that’s close to what I can find in nature. The hazelnuts are made from the top down in cotton nr 8 or similar, measures approx. 3 cm / 1,2″. The leaves measures approx. 4 cm […]

Last flowers..

It’s nice to have pictures of flowers for the times when the flowers are not around. A reminder of days with colours, fragrances and an abundance of pollinators. These are the last flowers around here for a long time. I don’t count the rose, that one is weird – it’s convinced that now is the […]

Mail time..

“Knock Knock” Someone’s at the door. Moxxi isn’t allowed this time, but she’s alert and SO ready to see what it is when I come back. I go to the door, open it – I know the “box-man” doesn’t have time for a dogs interest – sign for the box and by the time I’ve […]

Stitches and techniques..

I began describing how to make the stitches and taking pictures. But.. it’s so much easier to understand with a video and I can’t do that. Most creative people work best with visuel information, so I found a pile of links to videos where it’s shown and explained better than I can do in writing. […]

Crochet from scratch..

There are so many amigumis that look cute, scary, funny and weird. Btw.. what does that word mean? An amigurumi is small stuffed toys either knitted or crocheted. It’s a Japanese thing as far as I know and it can be something from your home, dolls, figures, characters from movies or games, animals or something […]

Quiet moment..

This is one of my favorite moments of the day. The hustle and bustle has disappeared for now. The birds have settled down for the night, the bees are quiet. Most people are at home, I can see the headlights of a car very far away, but I can’t hear it. The tractors and harvesters […]

Helping paws..

The whole point of a service dog is to get help with the things you can’t do yourself. They’re really good at what they do. Imagine that your whole life revolves around one job; to help a human. Often it’s the same task. Several times a day. Every day. They’re more than willing to do […]

Xenomorph.. (FA)

Something’s there.. Something is lurking in the shadows.. Better be careful. You never know what comes out. Maybe it’s something dangerous.. What IS that? There’s a lot of teeth and claws on that one. If we stand still, maybe it won’t see us.. Roaarhh!! OH NO! Run for your life! Look at those claws.. It’s […]

Nerdy gift.. (FA)

Found this little gem in my search for something that could be a “nice and nerdy gift”: the Tardis. I made it a little differently but it turned out ok. I’ve never seen a Dr. Who episode so I don’t really know anything about it, but from the little pieces and quotes I’ve picked up […]

Protected..

It’s so very nice to feel protected. Especially in the evening or at night and you know someone is watching over you. Then you can be at peace. A dog is a wonderful alarm button that goes of when ever something isn’t quite right. They keep out burglars and intruders of any kind and will […]
