Crochet, Flowers and Books



  Right now I am working on a scarf, you can find the free pattern here. I am thinking, that I probably have the wrong yarn for this project or the wrong hook, since it feels a little stiff. Also trying to learn to crochet small lace shawls for the dolls that I am currently working on. Do you have any suggestions for a book with small projects for dolls? Pinterest always has lovely ideas, specially the Japanese patterns, I like that they always include a diagram of the pattern, since I am a visual learner, I find it easier to follow like that. A friend come over and tried to teach me little tricks and different stitches on knitting...friends are gifts that keeps on giving.
    The books that I am currently reading are: "West from Home" letters from Laura Ingalls Wilder to her husband Almanzo while visiting her daughter Rose in San Francisco 1915. Here is a little quote from the book" ...The more I see the city life the more I love the country..." a girl after my own heart indeed. Also reading "Torches of Joy" a stone age tribe's encounter with the gospel. It is amazing when there isn't any distractions how much one can learn, the Dani people of Irian Jaya are quite amazing.

Happy and Thankful










We enjoyed learning to use gouache from the classes offered by Creativebug ,and also photographing some flowers new to me. I am specially taken by the Squared-Bud Daisy(can you spy one in the pictures above?).
Loving what my little town has to offer in many ways, but specially crazy about the flora, I love those simple gifts of nature... even now, looking at those pictures my heart feels happy and thankful!
                                  I hope that your heart feel happy and thankful too.
