Earth, wind and fire

I am working on 4 different versions of the ripple friendship bracelet: water, fire, earth and air. Since I've already used blues in the water one and white is not an option, I am wondering which colors to choose for the air themed bracelet. Purple?

Taste the rainbow!

I usually wear neutral colors: blue, brown, black and grey. And yet, I'm crazy about anything rainbow! I can spend hours on Etsy and Pinterest browsing through colorful pictures and items. And, of course, I like to make rainbow friendship bracelets!

Still looking for my pot of gold, though! :)

A day at the beach: Europeanstreetteam Challenge!

What a surprise when Leelabijou sent me a message telling I was the winner of last week's Europeanstreetteam challenge! The tradition being that the winner organises the next challenge, here is this week's theme:

A day at the beach!

Summer is just around the corner and soon everyone will be heading to the beach to spend a wonderful day in the sun! If you're lucky enough, maybe you've already spent some days at the beach this year!

I hope this theme gives you the inspiration to create a beautiful item. Think sand, sea shells, ice cream, beach pail, towels, tote bags, sun screen, beach volley, vintage swimsuits...

4.Ocean song fine art photography by Honeytree

Please convo me your entry before 5th June! Thank you and good luck to all!

Flower appliques

I love crocheting appliques! They're fun and fast to make. Once you get the hang of it, all you need is yarn, a hook and 15 minutes to spare. Of course, that's not counting weaving in ends... One day maybe I'll tell you how much I loathe weaving in ends. Or I'll tell you the story of "Catherine and the 1000 granny squares blanket"!

Anyway... Summer means bright colors so I recently made those cute flower appliques in bright yellow and orange:

If you like crocheting appliques, you can find hundreds of patterns at crochet pattern central!

Happy Friday 13th!
