May projects so far


 
I guess I was 16-17 years old when I found a book about the life and art of Frida Kahlo in the local library. It was a small library in Eastern Finland with not too many books in the art section, but luckily I found that and also One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez. Somehow the magical realism and Latin America fascinated me, being a friend of words, metaphors and all things artsy and international back then as well. These books alongside many others where whispering of the worlds beyond to a young woman and feeding her curiosity and teaching new point of views.     

So when I saw this wonderful Frida-brooch pattern, made by @kedito, I had to try it. If you would like to hook one too, you can find the pattern on her Instagram feed. I used Schachenmayr Catania and Scheepjes Catona for these brooches and hook size 2,5. Made two for presents and one for myself to keep.

And here below a small bunny, an adjustment of my teddy bear pattern. This little fellow seems to be quite "low maintenance". Sleeps most of the time and comes with his own food supply and dental care ;-). Carrot pattern is a free pattern on the blog Croby Patterns. You can of course make many different animals with the teddy bear pattern, see for example this cute kitten @koukutettu has made.

And then I guess I just wish you a good night and sleep tight, all bunnies and bigger creatures,
