When I’m busy with a long term project, then during the project I’m also taking a lot of interest. I do not manage to stay focused… So with that reason I usually work on multiple projects. I get a wave of relaxation when I start a new project and i do not know how I can hold this feeling for a long time. So when starting a long-term project, I also start a new short project.
The euphoria of a new project and the euphoria of a finished work!
I mean that, in addition to a big project, I have to make some small creations: like this bracelet.
The pattern is in the book “Haken en kleur buiten” by Saskia Laan and Claire Boeter.
Last year I bought a bag of those little balls of cotton yarn. I used this yarn for the bracelet. When I entered the store ‘the action’, last week, I saw a new stock in another color. I could not resist them and took them too..! At the first bracelet I concluded that he was really too big for my humble wrists. I knew that I wanted to make a somewhat smaller bracelet. So from the same book I hooked a smaller bracelet and this one is beautiful and fits perfectly!
After the summer holiday, my oldest daughter will go to the next class. Just before the holiday, the kids have a ‘teacherday’. On this day all birthdays of the teachers, will be celebrated in one day at a time. However, the evening before, I realized that I had no gift for the teacher. This made my creativity more appealing and fortunately I was inventive enough to mingle with the resources I had at home. The clock had been hit by 21:00 (figuratively, it tickles me alone) and then the shops are really close. I thought i could give the bracelet that is too big for me. But then she should like them. Because i did not know this, I had to do something different with the bracelet. And thought; ‘erverybody drinks tea or coffee’
At Pinterest I had seen some of those nice granny’s for a mug. This way you can hold the hot mug without burning your hands immediately. I offered a mug of myself … 🙂 I had to tie a strap so that he would fit the mug well and made a nice button hole so that it could be closed with a wooden button
And look what a beautiful version of the first so boring mug!
I think I’ll give the rest of my cups such a nice cover!
What do you think? Is it a successful gift? Have you ever made such a jacket for your mug? Or maybe you do not like it at all … that is also possible 😉
