28th Februari

tulips on the kitchen counter

Thank you for all the get well wishes, I'm feeling much better now...luckily!
It's a rainy last day of Februari...just where did this month go??
What exactly did I do this month..were there any finishes??
Nope, nothing to add to the one project a month list.

But, I crochet squares..76 so far.

76 squares

I'm hooked! Crochet hooked that is!

This morning Heleen and I went to a local fleamarket.
We love sniffing around..hope to find treasures.
I found these gorgeous potholders, crochet dresses.

I love the potholders!! I have a collection of vintage potholders, but none exactly like those.

All your crochet wok is just beautiful!! It will be one pretty afghan when it is complete! I love it!! So glad to hear you are feeling better and good enough to go out and find some lovely things at the fleamarket!

Love your crocheting. I have always wanted to crochet squares like you have for an afghan but don't know where to begin. Can you tell me the source of your pattern please.

Good to know you are better! You´ve made so lovely squares and those fabrics are so yammy!

Sarah said...

Your blanket is coming along so well. I love all the pretty colours. Your swap present is also looking very pretty. Can't guess what you've made though.

I just finished my swap present yesterday which is making me feel much better. Isn't it a great feeling when you finish a project?

Heerlijke post, we konden wel wat kleur gebruiken vandaag. Ik wilde dat soort pannenlappen gaan verzamelen om in mijn washokkie aan een lijntje te hangen. Kinderstrijkplankje erbij, dat heb ik al. Maar ik heb nog maar 1 paar jurk pannenlappen kunnen vinden, deze zijn geweldig!

Oh, now Royal Copenhagen teapot... lovely :) Your swap colors are really with a feel of spring. I'm still struggling on what to choose.
How many of the crochet squares you still need? They look really great.

Your tulips look so pretty - one of my favourite flowers! You are making amazing progress on your crochet - what a colourful rug that is going to be.

Roos said...

OOh precies zulke pannelappen heb ik, en gebruik ze ook dagelijks.
Ze zijn gemaakt door mijn oma(die ik nooit gekend heb overigens)Ze was er volgens mijn moeder zo zuinig op en ze lagen altijd in de kast. Ik heb er al veel plezier van gehad en vind ze zo mooi!

Julie said...

I'm so glad you are feeling better. The flowers are so pretty and made me smile. You are just going crazy your squares look so good. And I love the little dresses you found.

Oh, die blokkendeken wordt mooi. En geen een blok is hetzelfde?
Mooi hoor.

super die gahaakte deken! Ik ben ook aan het haken van restjes, maar dat duurt nog even. Wel vond ik er ooit een op een markt in Frankrijk ( 30 jaar oud) en een op ebay. Ik zal ze eens op mijn weblog zetten. succes met de swap! Ik hou de brievenbus ook in de gaten, maar nog niets uit Vegas...

Corry, Your tulip photos always make me smile! Well, again and again, all of your posts bring such joy to my days. The little pot holder dresses are too sweet for words. Thank you for sharing your day with us. So glad you are feeling better. PS My husband is in Europe right now and says the Pansies are in bloom. How lovely! I can't wait! Elizabeth

Glad your feeling better. Love your coffee/teapot. The potholders are lovely.

I love your little dress potholders! I have collected a few of those too. They are just so cute.
Your crocheted afghan is really beautiful! And I noticed that you found a new beautiful blue and white tea/coffee pot to hold your flowers in! Sorry you were not able to repair the other one.
