Girls Only

Little Man went away for a sleepover yesterday, so it's us girls for more than two days! Little Lady is very pleased that she gets all the attention and chatters all day long. Lots of fun! Our days were filled with relaxing/playing at home, going to playgrounds and doing groceries. You know, the ordinary things!
For me, this meant a little bit more time to crochet, so on Thursday I got halfway through the border of my new design and started thinking about the final row.


An ordinary day in our house is not an ordinary day without some laundry. I love it when I can hang it to dry outside in the garden. I just love it. I also washed my African Flower blanket for the first time... I was pretty scared about the dark blue bleeding into the lighter colours. I popped it into the washing machine, added some "colour catchers" and put it on cold. And prayed it would be okay in the end. Well...Voila. No worries! Still as beautiful as ever.


At some time it looked like it was going to rain, but fortunately it never did. I loved how the clouds were looking today.


Looking up to our little apple tree it still seems so hard to decide the right apple picking time. I think I really need to wait until September right?


I was very happy to see after our vacation that our little orange Indian cress was blooming in full glory, they are doing great and bring lots of colour to a dark spot in our garden.

After pottering in the garden we decided to visit a playground and while Little Lady was climbing and sliding I got a little visit from a special  ladybug!



So very cute! I had to Google, but the little bug is the same as the last one on the last row:

Ladybugs come in all sorts of types.

A propylea quatordecimpunctata.  Awesome!

And about an hour ago, I finished my new wrap design!!!!! I am intending to finish the pattern coming week and put it on the Pattern Testers Group on Ravelry. This will be the first time for me, and I am very excited!

I hope you all will have a splendid weekend!


P.S. It is still up and running, so please check out the lovely projects linked up in the Busy Fingers Showing Off Party and maybe link up your own pretties!

  1. Your crochet is so beautiful. I live in N.C. and we have loads of lady bugs. I love to watch them in the spring, they seem so happy! Or maybe it is just me feeling happy and content. I like the way you speak of your family. It is so nice. love Carol

  2. I agree with Beadwoman, lovely, happy posting and crocheting!

  3. Thank you so much!!! Mostly I see the red ladybugs, sometimes the yellow ones. I never saw this one :)


I would love it if you leave a comment! Thank you so much for visiting xXx
