  1. You have been working on some lovely things. I am trying to teach myself to crochet:) Never learned. My mother tried to teach me but she's a lefty and I'm a righty so it was awkward for her to teach me well. I don't think it is too hard:)

    Happy Easter!

  2. I just love your butterfly garden! It's so beautiful, I have started to work on mine again and I had forgotten what a fun quilt it was!

    Jag har läst din blogg ett tag men inte kommenterat tidigare, tror jag - hittade hit via Lisa i Kalix (från din kurs). Jag är väldigt imponerad av dina vackra arbeten. Är ofta in på Reprisen och gillar verkligen Remake-hörnan! Mycket kreativt och fint!

    Wish you a beautiful eastern-Time!
    Hugs Rita from switzerland

    Love Shirley.x

  12. I'm squealing over the pink buttons! Love the crocheted pink bathroom rug. My goodness I wouldn't want anyone to put their feet on it!

  13. Glad Påsk till dig och din familj!
    Lika fin blir denna butterfly garden ;-)Du för ett mycket bra jobb men det är säkert värt det sedan :) Härliga garner du fått av Gudrun. Det påminner min om att jag min tok har slängt en hel sådan kasse med garner vid en rensning och som jag naturligtvis ångrar nu :( Men men inget att göra åt..

    Är ni hemma hela påsken eller åker ni upp en sväng?

    Hur som helst ha det så härligt i helgen!

    Kram från mig och min övriga familj till er alla där hemma
