This and that

This post is a mix about everything.

A swatch I knitted last week for a cardigan I want to knit. 
It would be a lovely memory to Iceland.

My never ending love: Perlagoniums.

It's always a pleasure to quilt a part of the quilt with lovely fabric combinations.

Fresh picked flowers from the garden

 This is my youngest daughter. 
I'm trying to improve my photography skills. At this moment is my focus on people.
This picture is taken at noon. The light was harsh(photographers don't like this light).
 I put my daughter in the shade in front of a shed. The sun still caught her eyes. That was what I was looking for. Bright natural eyes and not photoshopped eyes. (thank to Cozy Clicks). I'm so happy with this result.

The weather is hot and dry these days.

My 4 children on our way to our boat for some refreshment.

365 days......

On my 365 days blog you will read that I quit with this challenge. 
In that post I'm talking about what I've done the last few weeks. 
Let me show you some pictures:

Well, I read a book: Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi (it's very good)

I finished two shawls.

First my Ka'ana Shawlette by Jennifer Weissman
I saw it at the local yarn shop and I fell immediately in love.
I knitted it with Shetland Lambswool Rennie yarn (yarn held double)
It's a lovely, lovely fast knit.

The second finish is my Nordic wind shawl (pattern by cabin four) 
Yarn: Lettlopi, I recently bought on my trip to Iceland.

 I'm crocheting potholders (a perfect project to do in the sunny garden)
I will use up some cotton yarn I have in my stash.

and I'm working on my quilt which has a summer feel to it too :-) 

And I spotted a spoonbill (lepelaar), man what an ugly bird..
