Long weekends in my case happen unexpectedly. After our happy V's day, I simply had to add a bit of cold, cough and a little fever in our life, so that we don't relax. Hey, I haven't been that badly ill, but unwell enough to skip my office yesterday. I hate being in such condition, because you can't actually do anything properly. Even crafting becomes so slow, and I didn't feel like doing any new posts. I'm sorry if I didn't comment on yours; I tried to visit your blogs and see what was going on there. And there were crafty things, homely things, flowers, colors, thoughts, books...I enjoyed all those!
It's been my aim for a long time to create lovely covers for the boxes, in which, you know, you keep all those bits of this and that. I had made one, but at that time it took me so much efforts to crochet it, and still it came out way too broad for a box. Now being slightly more experienced in crochet, I made two of such covers in just a couple of hours, and they fitted perfectly well. Don't even ask me what I keep in these boxes, but everything is very useful :)
So those I made during first two days of my long weekend. How was Monday remarkable then? I had a Russian style lunch prepared with my very Russian hands! Indian food is very tasty, but honestly, I got bored of it these days and searched for a change in taste. The salad in smaller dish is sour cabbage, which is a Russian recipe too. It is very simple yet tasty product rich in vitamin C, and I can easily make it out of Indian cabbage and carrot. Those lettuce leaves is my garden's pride.
You must have looked at my next picture by now, but this isn't just a dishcloth you seeing. I've been dreaming of starting a crochet group in our city since the day I discovered all the advantages of this craft. Finally the first steps were made, and we had a gathering of the Crochet Lounge last weekend. There were only two of us, me and my friend J, nevertheless we enjoyed interaction and had such a great Sunday afternoon. We hope that our friends will join us this weekend.
This dishcloth is the first project we had as a home task (hehe). I never tried to crochet in the back loops before, so here is my wavy dish cloth :) Let's see what J will make.
Here is a poster I created for our Lounge. I might add more details about this project later or even change it, but it's going to be like this for the time being. I guess I will be making a weekly post about our activities and projects. I know there are many lovely crochet groups and communities out there, virtual and real, but there is nothing like this in our city,. Let's see how it goes, I'm very excited!Thanks for your nice comments on the last V's day's post, I'm happy to take you along with me always. Now I'm off to reading "Anna Dressed in Blood" story by Kendare Blake... yea, it's not only flowers and butterflies and... crochet :).
Have a nice day, dears, take care!
