Hey everyone! I've had this idea in the back of my head for awhile now, and I've finally put it to the test! I've been seeing and loving all the woven wallhangings right now, and I thought that I could do something similar with tapestry crochet. So this is my first attempt!
I can't stop smiling about my new plant! I've wanted a fiddle leaf fig for a reeeeaaallllyyyy long time, and I finally found one for a price I could afford! How exciting?! (Home Depot has an amazing selection of indoor plants! My fig was $12.98 - amazing.) I've read quite a bit about them, and am nervous because they seem like they are pretty finicky. Hoping I can keep Fred happy! Maybe giving it a name will help. Or maybe it will just make it more sad if he doesn't make it... I also need to DIY him some sort of pot covering, so stay tuned!
Any of you have a fiddle leaf fig? Any tips? Do you name your plants, or is that weird?
Happy Sunday my friends! Today I'm recognizing things that take some time, but make me smile nonetheless. Above is a picture of my growing succulents from my first attempt at propagating. I started them several weeks ago and have been having so much fun watching their progress!
I've also been enjoying making and drinking matcha everyday. It's a little bit more of a process, involving pre-warming the bowl, sifting the tea powder, getting water to the proper temperature, and whisking the powder in the water with a special whisk, but it's so worth it!
Perhaps it's the time invested that makes it all so special and smile-worthy! Can you relate?
I've been plugging away at my scrap blanket using the Abstract Flower Motif No. 5 pattern (with worsted weight yarn and a 6mm hook). A few of you have asked how to do the joining motif, so I thought I'd put together a little tutorial on how I'm joining the circle motifs, and making the little joining motifs.
