May and June crafts, part 1

I started to organize my all crafts stuff and I founded many yarn leftovers. I decided to use all leftovers.
A few colourful coasters.

...and two washing patch :)

 A bolero for Milda, did from leftovers too.
 I crochet another skirt for Milda, but do not finished yet. I want to find a right fabric to sew under it.
and I did a few unsuccessful attempts to chrochet a matching jacket, but I found right pattern and now it is only a matter of time (and my will) :)

It’s been a while – many things had happen over this time.
First of all we (me and Milda) finally visited my sister. It was an exciting trip for us both – flight with plane, other country. We saw only a small part of Norway, but it was an amazing adventure to see it. [I’m afraid my English is too poor to describe all my impressions] :)
 We in "World End"
[more pic later]

Second – not so good surprise, when we came back home. My PC hard disc burned with all mine study material and with my final work to get bachelor degree :( … and with all photos, knitting patterns, etc. :(( I would have been had had my diploma this week, and now I can only hope, that specialists will be able to repair disc over the summer...

And a bright side of the story – I could pass my exams with no stress and start my summer vacation earlier. I did some knitting and crocheting, which show you later. And I even tried out decoupage  technique for first time... :)

Lazy weekend

Friday is my day at home, because I have nobody to look after my girl. This Friday vas very windy and rainy, so almost all day we spend inside watching movies :)

 ...and here is my all day knit :)

Saturday and Sunday was very windy too, but it was not raining, so we spend a lot of time outside in the yard.
  Milda only recently discovered the moon... 
 ...and moon gazing is very fun thing to do.
  Finally I manage to take a picture of starling. Starling song wakes up us every morning :)
We did a lit of drawing in the weekend too :) Milda was very happy to draw with me such big picture.


The beginning of the week was very busy and full of stress. I have to do so many things with studies and at home over this week… I hope it all turns up fine.

Recently projects

A bee costume for Milda.

Simply knitted two piece costume – striped vest and shorts (+socks). Black yarn – 100 % wool and with yellow yarns I had problem finding right “bee” color. Finally I picked 70 % acryl 30 % mohera yarn. The result of these different yarns a pretty good.

Milda was satisfied with result too :)
The purpose of costume was my friend son second birthday party.
warm hat for Milda.

The hat goanna be right size for the next cold season.
 ...and now I am mad about making baby stuff.
The madness reason is my nephew Markas. He was born on 29th of March and I can’t wait to see him in real (not in photo or skype). The problem is, that my sister with husband and the little one lives in Norway.
I hope I’ll be able to take break in my studies and Milda’s passport comes on time, to take a trip this month, otherwise we meet Markas only in summer.
 Cardigan for Markas.
 leaf hat :)

 baby hat :)

a baby hat I finished yesterday

this cardigan with few more baby hats and socks are in Norway already :)
 And of course - baby blanked. The Lithuania flag colors have been picked not intentionally :))
