happy weekend to y'all

Hi, it's been a few days since my last - the everyday routine is keeping me busy. But I guess you'll all know what I mean.

didn't really work on anything new, making a custom order for another hermit crab, working on the pattern for Chubby Fish, this one will be a freebie =)
also crocheting a little bit at my first (yet unfinished) seahorses, I ordered new yarn to complete them, but it's just not the same kind of fun **sigh**

what else?

oh, something really cool, Sonny and Shear used one of my dolls in an ad of theirs, cool uh?
love the outcome, and pretty exciting - "my" first ad :o)


new plants for my home

arriving, some impressions from outside and me and my brother fooling around

some impressions from inside, see this cute bumble bee?

what I brought home

yesterday was a looong day, a few hours in the car each way, a few hours at the plant nursery, pretty imressive this Rühlemanns, really a lot of stuff to sniff and feel and watch and maybe even taste ^_^
I brought home seven plants, well actually only five, but my mom brought me two extra ones. Driving home we finally had lunch (at about 5 pm) and they dropped me off nearly 4 hours later, believe me I was dead! tired is not the right word to express how tired I was!
I still feel tired, but you can't care too much, right?

I even crocheted a little in the car, but not much, only the face of another chubby fish is done, if you would't know it's a fish you couldn't guess ^_^


Charly and Chubby

the job sucked up all my free time last week, also the hottest weather I can remember didn't made me pick up yarn and hook or needles last week, but on friday afternoon, Charly was looking at me with his eyeless head his cute armlike fins and he called out to me to finish him, so I did, I made some eyes and decided on one pair and sewed them to his head and he looks at my kinda sad 'i wanna have a friend' . . . well, I had this pair of eyes left over and they called FISH, I made a couple of sketches and Chubby was born, yet only on paper, but already so cute I needed to bring him to life in form of pink yarn. So there I went trying and pretty quickly Chubby was born, now they swim together through the sea ^_^

also when I opened my ravelry yesterday morning a suprise was awaiting me: I won 2nd Prize for my flower pot in the Crochet on Ravelry group.
big smile on my face brightend up :o), biiiig smile, I can tell you!
I feel so honored and my flower pot is even more special now.

and now I'm off to clean my room, my parents are visiting me tomorrow, first time I see them since last christmas (they live in Munich so it's quite a travel to see each other on a more regular basis) but I'm glad to see them again, it was about time and the bonus to their visit is that we're going to a huge plant nursery near Bremen to sniff and buy the best herbs and other plants available (note to self: don't forget the credit card)
