Do What Makes You Happy - Friday Garden

Hello, dears! Yes, I know, I didn't make my weekly blanket post. There were few reasons, one of them was (is) the absence of the internet connection at home which issue will be fixed soon hopefully. Today I invented to upload pictures from camera on USB and then copy to my office computer. I decided though to show blanket progress next week and today carry on with Friday Garden. There hasn't been happening much in here, but still I have found few interesting things.
Few months ago we noticed some plant growing in our garden - it was a self-sowed spinach. These days it has become a big bush with numerous seeds, which I'd like to collect and plant again - isn't this nature's miracle?
The same way this lonely marigold has grown under the citrus tree, you can see the dry leaves underneath. I remember planting orange marigolds, but definitely not in this place, so another independently sowed member of our garden. 
The lettuce of which I was so proud back in March has produced little yellow flowers, and it means I'll be able to seed more of my Russian leafy veggies later on. 
Oh well, here is again that same story as with a crochet heart - have no idea how the hanging pockets actually hang on the trees! Though I don't think this was the best place for them to be so I took them to my room. Okay, enough of flirting with my crochet projects - yes this is the one I was asking you to guess what it was. Aishwarya was right. The idea of hanging organizers was not mine, I got inspired by a glimpse of it on Pinterest and HAD to try it out! The pattern Crochet Wall Pockets  is sold on Ravelry ... but I was able to figure out how to make them myself (come on, I've been into this hobby for more than a year now! hehe). The only thing I'd like to change is a stick on which the pockets are buttoned. I have to search for a suitable tree branch today.
I took many pictures not because I so adored what I've made, but because light didn't allow me to reveal true colors. But I think that this picture is the closest to the original. I used one of my favorite yarn - Millenuim acrylic yarn by Vardhman. I'm planning to do yarn shopping next week, as I have no patience to be busy with the same project all the time and plan to make some winter clothing item for myself.
I've linked the Crochet Wall Pockets to Creative Everyday Challenge Color theme of the month . 
We might go for a wedding this weekend, but I don't really feel like and will be more than happy to stay home (if possible) and do my favorite things. Yea, I know it is selfish and all ... but when your heart doesn't want something, how can you force yourself?
Have a nice day and a great weekend ahead! "Do what makes you happy" (if possible).

  1. Good that you are doing things that make you happy :) your pocket organizer looks very nice! Did you make it for room or garden? May be, you can button it up on some cloth hanger and then you can hang it on wall (room) or you can use the centre bigger part of hanger to put on a small branch (garden). Not sure, if that makes any sense or may be I am just having a hangover from writing big posts ;)

  2. I have never grown lettuce so I didn't know it flowered! Love the wall pocket too. I'd probably wrap a stick in embroidery floss or yarn.

  6. That organizer is a very good idea - isn't it fun to figure out a pattern by yourself? :)

    It's so exciting with plants self-seed. I am hoping for more marigolds this year.

    1. It is such fun and also makes me so happy when I come from office and look at my garden :) I didn't go to the wedding and I had awesome time with my husband! thanks!

  8. The organizer is very beautiful. Ideal to keep all the yet to be bills and wedding invites :-) I think I need this badly, as I keep misplacing things always ;-)
    I know how it feels when you want to spend time at home lazing around/do things you yearn for the entire week, but you have a family occasion to attend to. Thankfully I don't have any such thing this weekend.
    Right now I'm doing something that makes me happy, read all my blogger friends posts :)

    Luv,
    Ranjitha

  9. What a lovely idea!! Right now I am in the phase of too many pattern ideas and too little time. Will I ever manage to make everything that I want to?!! LOL

  10. It seems that nature and your crochet have minds of their own. And I think that's glorious. We should all do what makes us happy! even nature and handmade bits ;-)

    LOVE the adventurous greenery, too. Hugs!

  14. You are only into croshets for a year? That is amazing! You are really talented as i have mentioned so many times before. I would n't force myself to go to the wedding either, by the way. Weekends are precious!
    Thank you for the sweetest comment! Baby kicks are so much fun. Sometimes it can get scary when she is twisting and turning, or uncomfortable if she is pressing against my bladder making me run to the bathroom really fast, or even painful if she is aiming for my ribs, but if i rearrange my position she gets comfortable in another way. But most of the times it is so much fun!!
    Beltane blessings of fertility and love!

    1. Hehe, it happened so, and I am not going to stop! Thanks!!! I didn't force myself neither, and happy about it.
      Oho! the way you described it, it seems like "fun", but must be really amazing to feel your baby inside you moving!
      Blessings back at you!

  16. Hello Hindustanka.....Yes, I know what you mean about having to do things you don't necessarily want to do. I've faced that many times in life.

    If I have to do it, I try to make the best of it rather than complain too much. (Although I've done plenty of that, too. ha haha)

    You are very talented and creative with the crocheting!

    Thanks for your visits and comments on my blog.

    Have a great weekend! Susann

  18. You never know what might pop up in your garden! Some of the seeds in my garden tend to travel due to the birds. Your crochet pocket organizer is adorable. I can just see it filled with seed packets for the garden.

  19. The hanging pockets are brilliant! Useful and pretty to look at, what more could you want? x

  20. I had lots of weeds show up in all my potted plants this year. Of course, I don't mind if they are nice and green and flower, too. Anything that grows is a good thing around here. I like the idea of the wallpockets. Of course it would be easy to figure out how to make. You did a good job.

    I told my husband years ago to never ask me to go to a wedding in this country again. They are nothing like what I am used to in the States -- just not enjoyable to wait and wait and wait for something to happen. So if he needs to go, he goes alone. :)

    Hope all is well. I'm find it hard to blog right now. :( Have a great rest of the week. Tammy

  21. Love your hanging pockets!! Maybe I can build up to that with my growing crochet skills! And it is lovely to find surprises growing in your garden isn't it? Hope you have a lovely week!
