I don't remember where I saw this idea, but I like it: preserve the beautiful flowers you get by taking pictures of them.
This week I got two bouquets when I said goodbye to my job*. The white one is from my bosses, the colorful from my co-workers.

*my job outside the house that is. I will be working with T. in his IT-business. I already was, actually, but his business kept growing and I kept running out of time ;-)

A start


Amidst all the kitchen building I needed a bit of simple knitting. This will be a poncho, but it's really just two rectangular pieces of knitting. I can do that ;-)

In progress

My kitchen right now. But it will be great when it's done.

Easter dish cloth


A bit hard to see, but there is a little rabit in there.

A dress. No, a bag.

I decided to try and use a real pattern for a change, but oh my, so many pieces.


After I finally cut out all those little pieces I lost confidence and decided to make a bag. First time using a zipper. I think that worked out well.



Thrifting treasures

Since my scooter died I hadn't been to the thrift shop anymore (but oh, soon I will have my driver's license. I hope). Yesterday my husband took me there. That was fun.

I love these little plates.


and this record is great, but I would have bought it for the cover. Groovy ;-)


But my greatest find was this:

three bags of yarn. A big tangled mess, really. But I'm working on untangling it all (and having fun with that).

Also in the bags: some vintage little treasures.

Scarf and baret


After the cardigan I needed a smaller and quicker project so I made a simple scarf and a baret from thick yarn. The baret is my first project on four needles.

Retro cardigan

Pattern from an old Hema book. There wasn't enough of the green yarn, so I finished it in white. I actually like the effect.
