Lonely reindeer..

Finished amigurumi I don’t have the pattern anymore. This reindeer is the only thing left of a failed and rather massive project but there’s no reason to throw it out just because of that. It was part of a project containing a huge merry-go-round and I finished the base and the roof as well. Then […]

Counting..

It got too difficult to keep track of laps while walking and dealing with the chaos of thoughts in the head. I can’t do anything about the chaos but I can eliminate counting. I need to walk between two and four km every single day just for me. Then there’s the walk with Moxxi that […]

Lantern with stars..

Cardboard just for fun It’s dark outside. Really dark. The evening walk with doggo has to start about 3 pm in order to get home before it’s pitch black. So I wanted to spread a little light and made a lantern out of a carton that used to contain 2 liters of green tea. It’s […]

Wrist warmers / fingerless gloves..

Finished crochet project It’s getting cold now and I needed something to warm my hands but gave me freedom to handle the leash. I’ve made something like this before and these are some of the easiest I’ve made yet. First pair used up leftover blue Drops Andes yarn. Second pair I made bulky by using […]

Something is going on..

Huskies are known for climbing trees and maybe it’s a good thing there’s no climb-worthy branches. The last couple of days Moxxi has been very busy around this tree. She caught a mouse yesterday and looked for more but found none. She dug a hole close to the roots of the tree to find them. […]

When the catnip kicks in..

Some cats will react to catnip, some will not. The diva and the digger in this household gets extremely excited when given this herb. Four weeks ago I harvested the catnip from my garden following all the rules. After researching when I messed up the first batch I wanted to do it better. I cut […]

Happy Halloween..

The branch inspired me to create a small decoration for today. It came down during the last storm and it looks a bit like antlers. I thought it could be used for something. So with a few crocheted creatures, some leaves, a led fairy light, some yarn and a couple of plastic flies I ended […]

Smokey anniversary..

Today is a weird anniversary. It’s excactly one year since I stopped smoking. One year since I was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance. Something I’ve never tried before and I can’t recommend it. I’ve been thinking about what has happened since that scary day. I was in the middle of cleaning when suddenly […]

Bat for halloween..

Finished amigurumi.. Bats are cute.. Well most of them. The ones I’ve encountered have been sweethearts. Like the one I helped taking care of and learned about while feeding it with fruit or the small ones I have in my garden. I enjoy watching them while they hunt for insects on late summer nights. They’re […]

Fall treats..

This week has mostly been about pumpkins and trying new food. I’m not fast (or furious) so it takes some time to do anything. The carving part was interesting but what I was really looking forward to was pickling. 8 jars of wonderful ginger pickled pumpkin! I really stacked the pieces in the jar to […]
