Hello, dears! I am surprisingly fast with the second post this week, and it means that there is something to show. Last week I had lovely time crocheting my first ever baby clothing item - a pinafore. First I had to see the meaning of it, sorry for my lack of knowledge of English words. When I got it I realized that I used to wear white cotton (or lacy) "pinafore" in my elementary school, accompanied by brown woolen dress as a compulsory uniform in then-soviet schools. It was not exactly pinned but tied up behind in a bow and had same kind of "wings" like this one, which is called Angel Wings Pinafore, and the pattern is so easy to follow!
My version however didn't look angelic to me and I preferred calling it a Snow white pinafore. Not sure what I will be doing with it now, may be will leave it for myself(for future you know). I also was planning to make some baby hats, caps and so forth as a part of charity crochet. I hope I find time to implement this plan.
The heart shaped buttons from a local sewing shop went so well with the colors of the pinafore. I couldn't find better place for taking photos as our backyard with all its imperfection. The light was nevertheless perfect for revealing of the colors. How do you like the red?Oh yes, and here is a savage part - out backyard during the last weekend rain. You cannot see here but that curry tree in the left corner became so bushy and was wildly swinging in that weather.
A tiny bit of garden update - once again beans win the race! Honestly, the best plant to grow here!
When me and my D came back from Kazakhstan in August, I noticed a tiny plant was put in soil, now it made its way up. Please tell me what plant is this? Its leaves resemble bean ones. I hope it would be blossoming some day...
My garden overall is not in a very good condition now, it used to rain here regularly and the soil is just so wet and hard after it. Not sure that the fennel I sowed will grow fine. Also October doesn't feel like October. everything is green and lush. Today I got news from my Dad that there was first SNOW in my native city. How do you like this?
I urgently need to get my blogging mood back, hence I will start preparing for a Broomsticks on the Bayou blog party organized by Anna at Frosted Petunias and Marfi at Incipient Wings. You can join too. We all have something to say ;)
Heading towards weekend and wishing you all to have a pleasant one! Hearty thanks for all your nice comments, I LOVE reading them and replying!
