'Aurora Borealis'

I always wanted to paint
the Northern Lights!
Watercolour was an easy way to do it.
There are several different ways
to paint this painting.
I might try again, using a different way.
But i think this went quite well! 
What do you think?
It looks a little pale in the pictures. 
The colours are a little bit more 
vibrant than this...

'Poppies'


That's the first time i paint poppies. 
Painting them in watercolour was
easier than i thought it will be! 
I really like this painting! 
It might not be perfect, 
but i think it's quite good!
 What do you think?

'Raspberries'


This was a lot of fun to paint!
It's easy, fast and satisfying! 
I think watercolours are turning to be 
my favorite way to paint! 
What do you think about this painting?


'Snowy River'



I don't think i have done
something like this before.
Painting the river was
a little easier than i expected.
The picture is a little messy,
but it's watercolour.
It is not supposed to be perfect. 
It's supposed to be fun! 
What do you think?

'Cloudy Sky'


I am trying watercolours again!
It's been a long time 
but now i painting again
an I LOVE it!!!
So, what do you think!

Woollen Cap wc008 (Women's peak cap hat)

This is another one peak hat. 
I really like this pattern. 
I have tried different colours 
with this pattern. 
They look really good! 
What do you think?


Woollen Cap wc007

This cap reminds me of candy corn!
It is a slouchy cap
I made this one with knitting needles, 
which is something i do not usually do. 
Most of my woollen caps 
are made with the crochet hook. 
I became a little bit more slouchy 
than i wanted it to be :-P 
So, what do you think?

Woollen Cap wc006

I really like this cap. 
It is slightly slouchy. 
It is made with puff stitches. 
It might seem like is has a lot of gaps 
between the stitches, 
but it is really warm and cozy. 
So, what do you think???

Woollen Cap wc005

This is a slightly slouchy cap
made in sea colours.
It is made with a half double crochet stitch.
The brim is made with 
front post double crochet stitches. 
This is a fluffy and warm cap. 
Of course it is already gone. 
The lady who is wearing it is my best friend.
She got it as soon as i finished it. 
:-P 
So, what do you think???

Woollen Cap wc 004 (Granny Stripes Hat)

This pattern might look familiar
to those who crochet.
It is the typical stitch of the granny squares. 
Only it is made on a cap :-P 
Again, i found the pattern at the 
"How to Crochet - The Crochet Crowd"
channel in Youtube. 
I really like their videos. 
They are so helpful for begginers 
like myself! 
So, what do you think of this hat???

Woollen Cap wc003 (5 Star Beanie)

This is another one pattern i found at the
"How to Crochet - The Crochet Crowd"
channel in Youtube.
The first time i made this, i did it wrong.
The pattern uses single crochets 
and i was useing double crochets. 
The outcome was very nice 
but it was not a 5 star beanie. 
:-P
This is the beanie 
made in the right way. 
What do you think???
By the way,
if you like the patterns
and want to check the 
"How to Crochet - The Crochet Crowd"
channel in Youtube, 
just let me know. 
It's quite easy 
to find their channel, 
but, if you do not want to search, 
i can just send you the link ;-)

Woollen cap wc002 (Women's peak cap hat)

I have made quite a lot of caps by now,
but this is not exactly a cap.
This one actually has the shape of a hat.
This is a lovely pattern i found at the 
"How to Crochet - The Crochet Crowd" 
chanel in Youtube. 
Their host, Mikey, is really amazing. 
He gives nice direction 
while showing the crochet tecniques. 
If you have some time, 
go check out their videos. 
I bet you will love them! 
I am not accustomed in 
using myself a s a model. 
It is a little uncomfortable for me. 
:-P
But i had no other model at the moment...

Embroidered picture 10


Don't laugh, please!!!
I was trying to learn
how to embroider pansies... 
but i didn't do so well, did I? 
:-P 
Anyway, 
it's not such a bad picture... 
It's just not what 
it was suppose to be. 
What do you think???

Embroidered picture 9


I love strawberries! 
So i thought i could make 
an embroidered picture with strawberries. 
It might not be perfect... 
but it's not so bad either :-P 
What do you think???

Embroidered picture 8


This is my first effort
to embroider something more 
than just flowers. 
It's made with embroidery cotton floss.
I like it! 
What do you think???
