living with a cat

 I have to hang stuff on the sides of the sofa to stop Selma (my cat)
 from sharpen her claws on my sofa or fine chair.
 (the chair - the blue  one you see a the bottom left of the picture)
well, it isn't pretty, but neither is the result of her scratching.
This is how my funiture looks after my very annoying cat has been by.
VERY annoying.

And I do have a scratching tree she can use, but she only uses it when I am in the room.
very sneaky of her.

Made from pressed leaves, lots of scrap pictures and cuttings from magazines.
The scrap pictures are, some my grandmother collected,
some my mother collected and some myself.

doodles and a project

 two doodles 

Started a new project to see if that was what was holding me back from knitting.
It wasn't
I really really had to force myself to knit this far

only time will tell what happens next

embroidery before I filled it up with beige thread
embroidery finished

I finished this embroidery when I was at the hospital.
I actually liked it better before I filled out everything.
It was much more clear and standing out.
But I am so not going to undo it. way too much work!
I am thinking I will make it into a pillow cover with blue fabric.

If I ever feel like taking out the sewing machine again, that is...

friendship bracelets

I knotted these from yarn while at the hospital.
I grant you they are a bit chunky, 
and not nearly as elegant as the ones in "mollie makes" from July.
But so it is
Its almost 2 weeks ago I knitted or did any crocheting.
I keep taking the stuff out, but I also keep putting it back.
It is very odd for me

summer shawl

I started on a summer shawl while at the hospital, 
with a diamond motif on needles nr. 3

Right now it is on pause though, because I don't feel like being creative 
- which is VERY unusual for me!
 I just hope it will come back soon,
