My hubby loves „My Neighbor Totoro“, so when his sister asked me for birthday gift recommendations, I said „Why don´t you try to make him a crochet Totoro“. I am not very good (and not patient) at crafty things that are „accurate“, so this was the perfect challenge for her. What she came back with is simply amazing. Of course the hubby already asked and wants the little white „Chibi Totoro“ for Xmas. I am not mentioning the ginger cat here, messing around with the pictures.
To clear out all sorts of crafty leftovers, I came up with the idea for this summer bunting. Little crochet things, buttons, tapes and laces are piling up everywhere at our house and their presence might get questioned by the hubby. So a bunting is the perfect camouflage. However, since the weather is not so nice yet, I had to put it up indoors. I am very happy with the result. Although it looks a little bit too white to me. I will think of adding a vintage look by my usual „Earl Grey“ tea coloring before I put it on the front porch.
I was in Erkrath yesterday for a „Backen mit Love “ book signing event. I basically moved in there for the afternoon with all my Valentine`s Day stuff. We turned the event into a scrapbooking workshop and it was a blast. Thanks to the lovely people from Buchhandlung Weber who invited me and have such lovely furniture. It was very easy to decorate everything nice. Thanks also, to everyone who came chatted, scrapbooked or bought the book. I still can´t believe that we are already in the 2nd Edition.
