Around the Garden

The groundhog was right, we have an early Spring, I even have my first mosquito bite of the year, a new record.
Signs of Spring are everywhere, the white violets are blooming and seem to spread all over the garden, which is fine with me, the rose bush is full of new leaves and the lilac is promising to bloom this year (no late frosts please) and there is even a new hat growing amidst the chickweed.

I am adding chemo caps to my projects for the cancer center. I knitted a test hat, using this pattern and a soft cotton yarn from my stash.

I just finished a new pillow. When I saw the pattern in a Yarnspirations newsletter I knew I had to make it. And since I am currently working from stash my pillow has two different sides, one yellow, one white.

Leftover Yarn

There is quite a lot of that in my house and every so often I come up with a use for it. This time I made a mat for the cat bowls out of cotton yarn and a new blanket for the little darlings out of colorful leftovers from my slippers.

Productive Day

I did some practical sewing today and I am quite pleased with what came out of it. I made new curtains for the kitchen, the old ones started to disintegrate and looked a bit sad. Now I have strawberries instead of lemons.
Ich hatte einen produktiven Naehtag heute und freue mich ueber das Ergebnis. Neue Vorhaenge fuer die Kueche, jetzt gibt es Erdbeeren statt Zitronen. Die alten haben sich allmaehlich aufgeloest und sahen sehr traurig aus.

And then I cut up an old fraying bath towel and made two new dish mats. Fresh colors for my kitchen.

Und dann habe ich ein altes ausgefranstes Badetuch zerschnitten und zwei neue Abtropftuecher daraus genaeht, eine Farbauffrischung fuer meine Kueche.

Jahresprojekt 2016

The pattern for February was 'Hearts' and I decided I needed a new sofa cushion. I still have a lot of pre-cut hearts that I bought many moons ago and so it was a rather quick project and I am happy with the result.

Die Herzen fuer Februar haben mich dazu inspiriert, ein neues Sofakissen zu naehen. Ich habe einen Vorrat an vorgeschnittenen Herzen, die ich vor langer Zeit einmal in einem Quiltladen gekauft habe und so war es ein schnelles Projekt. Ich bin mit dem Ergebnis sehr zufrieden.
