Sunshine, beauty and a bit of struggles

















Hello my lovelies. How are you this early April day? The sun has showered us with love lately. Making us want to go outside and spend time in the garden. It has been a good week with lots of natural beauty, sweet moments and lots of time together.

Jay went for his first track day of the year, I was supposed to come with him, but the weather in France was so lousy I decided to stay at home. He had a great time as the weather did dry up in perfect time for the day he arrived, so he came home with a big boyish smile on his face. It makes me so happy.

A couple of weeks ago I replanted all my geraniums and cut them back, and with joy they are starting to sprout quite a lot. Not all of them have survived the winter sleep, but I'm quite pleased if I can save at least one or two of them.

Even though things have been rather lovely lately, I feel that this year is not starting off on a good end for me, for us. It has been a bit of a struggle on the private scene. The struggle seem to be contagious. Dear friends are getting strucked by struggles aswell... It has put many of us on the spot, forced us to make changes, step up and take a step back from plans, activities, dreams... Maybe that is good. To get forced to stop the hectic life we live and reflect upon what the moment and our nearest and dearest supply us with. But it is also hard. I know we all will come out stronger at the end from our challenges, but I just find it frustrating as my hopes for 2017 to be a great year were set so high. I'm not giving up hope though. We still have 3 quarters left to turn it all around.

And so what is going on with that Granny Cardigan project? Well, it really deserves its own post, and I will share it all with you, but in short.. After frogging it not only one time but three (!!!) times, and starting over and over again, I just kept on bumping into more problems and at this point I've just had it with this project. I'm giving up and have started to unravel it one last time, but this time to recycle the yarn and turn it into another project. And who doesn't LOVE starting on something new? Do I have to tell you I am overly excited? Again!!!

With that I sign off today, again, a big THANK YOU to all of you who have purchased my latest pattern - Isak's Bunting - you make my world go around with your support and encouragement. I hope you will enjoy making your buntings and please share your creations with me.




Kärlek
Annette

  3. Ah, duvets airing in true Swiss fashion, I so miss this here in Scotland, where the weather is never quite reliable enough. Your photos remind me of my childhood in Switzerland, thank you! I hope things pick up for you soon. Wishing you a lovely week. x

    1. Hi Christina
      Happy to hear I brought back some childhood memories for you today. I have to say the weather in in Switzerland is generally great. Seldom are there days and days of gloom and rain, always a day or two a week with a glimpse of sunshine. It's a good thing.
      Have a lovely week in Scotland. I would love to visit one day for the rolling hills and greenery. :)
      Xx

  4. I'm so sorry you are having struggles right now....they are always there hiding waiting to strike some unknowing person. I've had my share over a lifetime so I don't get too rattled anymore as my faith has upheld me and I know there are many things I cannot control.
    I am taking your lead and not going ahead with the sweater as you are a far better crocheter than me and if you are having problems then woe is me! LOL! Why would a magazine publish without testing it out on other crocheters? It doesn't seem like they did. Thank you for the heads up and I hope things improve for you and your friends.
