October is already over… time is running. Time for a short review:
1. THE CHICKEN RUN
I’m still waiting for my Kentucky-Chicken “Carrot-Leaf”. It didn’t arrive … it is on its way now for appr. 4 weeks… hope that nothing bad is happend to Carrot-Leaf… perhaps on its way it found a nice place to settle down??? I hope that the small cute chicken is all right… Nevertheless meanwhile a new chicken was sewed here … I’ll wait until next Sunday to introduce to you the chickens you can win… but here you get a little foretaste:
This cute Chenille-Chicken is waiting for you!
2 All in all October was a very buzy month… I tried a lot of things in my autumn holidays, had a lot of work too. So I will show you now what I did with all the chestnuts I gathered up: I made a small chestnut filled satchel out of it – you can use that for massage of back, shoulders or neck – the satchel is used for carfully pressing or knocking.
The whole month I was buzy with trying a really cute crochet pattern: some crochet mice… I found the tutorial on thegreendragonfly blog… but be careful – it’s unstopable!
I tried chenille-technique 1st time:
In October I discovered a beautiful knitting pattern – I found the link on a Canadian knitting blog: Aster Flower Knitting Stitch by Knitting Unlimited – seems to be difficult first, but it isn’t – after just a few rows it was possible to knit without the pattern. I have some wonderful baby alpaka wool my mother brought along last year from a trip to Peru … I think it will be a beautiful smooth shawl soon:
Beside all that I was kind of pouch-addicted… I tried different patterns and materials, with or without lining, small or bigger… cause I aimed to understand pouch-construction.
The pattern for the small pencil- or glassespouch with the endless zipper I found on a German blog (himbeerkamel). It is in German – but I hope with the step-by-step foto-tutorial it is self explanatory.
3. October was kind of shopaholic... ebay… dawanda… local fabric market … lots of precuts, fabric and other stuff are waiting now for use!
4. October was successful … I successfully passed a postgraduate professional education: “Coaching with creative techniques”. Beside my full time job I started it last year in November … now I’m happy that I climbed that mountain!
TO LIFE AND LIVING!
Thank you for stopping by.
