More Tulips!

I was in Copenhagen yesterday and couldn't resist taking a picture of this fantastic flower market! Orange everywhere!! Of course, I couldn't resist buying a bouquet of tulips, either! Flowers and fabric...I truly believe that those are my two biggest weaknesses!! Ok, so I forgot yarn!!!


I bought three skeins of this lovely angora yarn in a wonderful little shop called Sommerfuglen. It's situated in the old inner-city and carries some beautiful and unique yarn brands. I'm making a little neck-warmer scarf and I'll probably use a brooch to fasten it off....I have lots of antique finds in my jewelry box that would be just perfect! The pattern is just a simple crocheted shell stitch, which should work up quickly! Our spring may be early, but the winds can still be chilly!

Here are Pocket and Floss, some sweet little rabbits designed by Melly and Me of Australia. I made them for display in our local quilt shop, Slotshuset Patchwork. They were really fun to sew and I hope to make a pair for myself!!! Maybe before Easter arrives! We'll see!

Last, but certainly not least, I'd like to wish our little grandson, Axel, a VERY HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY!! We love you, Axel! Have a wonderful day!! Love from Mormor and Morfar!! XOXOXOXOXO
