Hiya! This is post #200. Maybe it doesn’t sound like much to you, but for me it’s a big thing. I‘m not very tenacious and I tend to get bored of everything quite easily… so believe me when I say 200 posts IS something.Continue reading
🎵 It’s that time of year… 🎵 Yes it is. 2020 is ending and it calls for a round up, because despite it all, this year has also brought some unexpected good things…
So here’s my selection of the DIYs I’m most proud of.
Here’s a little something I made to entertain these days:
September 11th is a special date for me because it’s the day I started this blog… 4 years ago! Wow!

And here the veggies (although technically the tomato and the lemon are fruits too, and the mushrooms are fungi…):
The last but not least in my series of crochet veggies is THE BANANA.
I had been thinking about the banana for some days because I didn’t really know how to make this crescent-moon-like shape… But I’m pretty satisfied with the result. It’s a toy anyway… it has to be identifiable, but I didn’t really need too much detail level. It’s not one of those absolutely perfect plastic food replicas they have in Japan…
