Inspired by the wonderful work of bloggers such as Lotte or The Blue Rabbit House I exchanged my knitting needles for some crochet ones, just to try something new once in a while. Get those synapses working.
The little pillow on the left is part of a project I have been working on for such a long time. These pillows are filled with a custom mixture of lavender and eucalyptus. But sadly I have not found a good way to refill these yet, so the smell fades away after a year or two. They are still rather pretty to the eye though, and make an adorable present for any kind of occasion.
Well, I know, that little doily is all warped and slouchy, and only with the simplest stitches you first learn when you start crocheting. But it's my very first one and I did manage to finish it in one evening. I am amazed at how old fashioned I once thought these were (like back in those years when granny used them under pretty much any platter you could imagine). How adorable I find them now!
