Work in progress, a book and a finished order...

Living in the South of Spain where the sun is shining most of the days throughout the year, you can come upon a 'strange' scene like this in october:

While the sun is still dropping her last rays (at 19.15!), I found myself crocheting outside on my patio with warm Merino wool on my 'Dotty blanket in vintage colours' and dreaming away in Mollie Makes Christmas book, that had just arrived. I love this book, the nostalgic look, the wonderful projects, very Mollie Makes indeed, and I love Mollie makes.

When I was a little toddler, my parents used to call me Mollie... So when I first found out about this magazine I thought it was made especially for me...well sort of... it could have been.... It is obvious that I'm a 'maker'. And I'm a real collector too....my house could be featured in Mollie Makes without the use of a stylist I guess...that is: she/he wouldn't know where to begin rearranging puppets, animal figurines, crocheted goodies, flowery cups, jars-full-of-buttons-and-ribbons etc. etc.!

This is a 'Granny tissuebox cover' I have just finished as the last piece in an order. The colours aren't very true in this picture, but I have already send it of to it's new owner:

I used Michelle Kludas' pattern that is available for free on her lovely blog The Royal Sisters. And added some free style flowers to it and a clean and simple edging.

Hasta luego!
