For years I thought that I was a quilter.. ..
Then I started knitting. So I became a quilter who is knitting.... and now after a few crocheting
projects, I think I can say that I'm a quilter who knits and crochets. (not to speak about cross-stitch, if only I had more time......)
On Instagram I came across a woman who crochets very sweet cuddles toys. I was happy to see that she sells her patterns on Etsy. A few weeks ago I made this bunny.
I couldn't resist to make another one. It's the same pattern only without a cap and I sewed down her ears.
- The white bunny is crocheted with Scheepjes Softfun, a cotton/acryl blend.
- The beige bunny (actually I think she looks like a dog) is crocheted with Annell Malmedy, a 100% superwash wool. The yarn is a bit thinner as the Scheepjes yarn., so this bunny/dog became a bit smaller. I crocheted both with a 1,75mm hook.
Only, look at their arms.. I think something went wrong with reading the pattern.
Beside crafting I'm a bird lover. This blue tit couple found their home in my garden. Yes!
A few weeks ago I found this plant at a garden store.
'String of Hearts', very popular in the 70's.
I searched for it for a long time.
Back to quilting.
Today the batting that I ordered came in. Quilter's Dream Cotton Request.
Time to baste this top. Can't wait to finish it.
I'm also ready for some mindless knitting, a take along project.
That will be pink socks. Pink the color of blossoms.
