green square crochet blanket

I couldn't make Selma(the cat on the picture), lie down on the blanket for this shot, but it is still cute!

Green square crochet blanket, started, I don't know when.
(ok 2 years ago..)
Now done and picture taken
(It has been done for some months, ½ a year perhaps.
but let us not go into details;) )

Here is a blogpost from when I started it.

Trying to teach myself to be positive. 
I have a great wish to become an optimist.
So here goes:
Looking so much forward to the rain and lower tempertures they have promised for the next days:)

decoupage in frames

 I have put some tape on the electric cord from the lamp, the whiteness annoyed me.
The duvet cover is my favourite, I even got 2 sets, though they slightly differ in colour tones. 
They are both from different charity shops. loving it

 At the hospital they advised me to change something in my bed-area.
-because before you get hospitalized you spend a whole lot of time in your bed
-- so now your bed is a place with bad memories

It took me some time to figure out what I wanted.
I ended up making a collage of some of the flowers I drew while at the hospital.
- and put them in some old gold coloured frames.

It is now definitely a more positive thing to lie in bed, than it has been.
which is good.

bedside table

I bought this table for myself some time ago, for 30 danish kr.
At some point, I decided to make it more exciting, interesting and pretty
-- so I found my boxes with paper cuttings from magazines ect.
The result is what you see.
I am very satisfied.
I do wish the paper hadn't wringled because of the moisture from the laquer.
But so it is, now, I know.

The kitchen

The kitchen as it was, on the left picture.
The two pictures on the right is how my kitchen looked for over half a year

 First part in the renovation was demolition of wall(we only took down the outer layer of plaster, straw, metal thread, and nails - taking it down was great fun actually, I felt so cool and powerfull;)

 Fixing the ceiling and walls. All electric cords were put into the wall or over the ceiling.

 The floor.
We pulled the old floor off, then there was put some water pipe down, and then we had some pros put down the new floor 
( it took them 2 days, voila)

 My little storage room, one of my favorite parts of the apartment.
The picture lowest, right is how it originally looked.

 The kitchen in finished condition, almost

I am now out from the hospital and back in my apartment.
It is no fun, but darn hard work.
I truly hope it will all pan out in the end!

Striped shawl

I decided I wanted a summer shawl.
Having some blue yarn, and some red yarn, but not enough of either to make a whole shawl of either.
I made it striped.
I even made a knitting swap where I tested which seize needle I wanted. Very proud.
In the middle of the shawl there is a lace pattern, and both the sides are striped.

Now, 20 cm into the work, and I am bored out my mind!

So either I stick it out, or I unravel the thing, and then think of a more advanced/interesting design.
Only the thing is, going more advanced, will perhaps be too difficult.

A such trouble.

In 4 days I am moving back into my apartment, and out of the hospital.
Very excited.
