The bag ,crochet in a yarn made by wood pulp, is a birthday gift from a lovely friend,a pen friend from USA,since many years now.We have many things in common as knitting,crochet and embroidery and many more things.The yarn is eco Andaria.What a lovely wonderful glowing yarn and it's so good to find more eco yarns to use.My friend M says that it weakens a little when it's wet but now it's a very good quality and you can have small things in it without problems.This is also a good summer party bag.Why not having a gift in it when you go to a friend f ex flowers or a skein of yarn.In the birthday package she also put 2 skeins of eco Andaria so I hope I can find out what I want to do of it.About that during my summer vacation. Wish you all a nice time.

The second embroidery with white DMC.The sqare in the middle is going to be an empty square,the other once are going to have small patterns.Love the way to design,and to have the full right to do whatever I like or whatever I want to fill it with. I have used for the soft stiches 2 of 6 strands and for the "thicker" ones 4 of 6 .This is a nice way of getting different impressions of the stitches and the embroidery. I wish you all a lovely day.

Wednesday ,the first day in May and I made this coaster in different cotton yarns in green,yellow and lilac.It's a simple pattern,a simple granny square,and I love it.You can play with yarns and colours.The last row around,the thin frame,is made of double embroidery yarn. the coaster is made by double embroidery yarn.I want to celebrate the springtime.We are longing for flowers and green leaves but still nothing of it.We still have ice on the river and a snowy landscape but every day the snow is melting. I wish you all a nice new month. Wellcome May with sun,flowers and green leaves,

An early Sunday morning and I'm drinking my first cup of tea.The last week I have been without handicrafting.A very special week in that way.We have had our third workshop April 11 and 12 and now we have vacation until September.During that time we are working with 3-D projects in white on white and starting our examination work.More about that in the autumn. postcrossing.com is a group of people loving to swap postcards and this week has been so great as I have been writing and getting cards from Japan,Taiwan,Russia,Germany,Mexico,Turkey and Finland.It has been so lovely to find a postcard from somewhere and often with lovely stamps on in our postbox.I'm looking forward sending more cards and getting some. A dear friend of mine has been in Maroco and she had this little bowl in blue for me.It's so beautuful and so "glowing".We have a special examination work in November where we are going to show our 5 items in embroidery.As you can see on my pictures I'm very inspirated by the blue colour just now.I have other things inspiring me too but I'm very blue.During my summer vacation I'm doing something of it as time goes so fast when we start working again in August

Early Friday morning and the sun is shining .I'm going to have vacation for 10 days.As I'm going on a embroidery course and we have homework to do I´m going to do some stitching during the vacation but also using the time for walking and other activities in the winter landscape. My homework. 1.We have to do different patterns in small squares,about 1,5" without using anything but the "eyes".How long is that?Well for me it is 1 3/4".Why?I don't know. a)One square of fabric -about 13" in white.I use linen fabric. Black yarn. Use different combinations of running stitches. b)One square of fabric -about 13" in off white White yarn. Use different combinations of running stitches. 2.An animal. a)We have made a animal to combine in different directions on the fabric.Use different stitches.Black yarn and white fabric. b)One animal in colours you want to use and in stitches you want to use. Happy Easter. Happy Spring
