carmen stitch granny cushion

Weeks ago I told you about a new pattern from talented Nicky Trench. Here you can see my variation of the pattern as a cushion. Today I gave it to a friend as a birthday present. I used the leavings of wovenstitch striped blanket (GGH Davos). I think I have to do something in this beautiful pattern also for myself....

hooky greetings, Imke

stop the rain

Repot my cactuses and succulents  -
some of the bigger agaves I will bed out in the garden - hope they'll survive!

When will the rain stop?! This is my last month at home before I start working part time, dreamt about spending it outside,-(

between the rain

 We used the break between the rain to take a walk through the park and visit a small flea market.
The best idea ever, for only a few euro I got so cute things (which you can see on the first picture):
An wooden owl (!) wardrobe,  matryoshkas, a tambour and a cute plate....

Let's see if I can manage to start to arrange the big granny love blanket?!
Usually someone is making a mess out of the squares;-)

black and white vs. camel

Thinking about the colours and technique for joining the squares for my big granny love blanket...
I would love to join in black, but there is no more black balls of Gedifra Akona available and I have only 6 left... same for cream! I have only enough balls of camel beige for joining all squares. Another option is to frame and join in black and cream alternate.  Tough decision, but I guess I'll go for camel and join all in same color which will make the blanket more quit and balanced.

What do you think?
