This week

This week meant back to work for me after a two weeks break with Christmas and the New Year. My feelings were mixed and I was a bit unsure how to feel about things going back to normal. The little one going to the kindergarten and we back to work.
But before we had a great Sunday afternoon enjoying the hours as a family and with friends in a family-run cafe. I ate carrot cake – even more better than the one we had two weeks ago. This one was really delicate: walnuts and carrots in the smooth and doughy cake, cinnamon in the cream-cheese frosting! Marvellous.

We also had a waffle and a brownie. All very scrumptious and definitely going to be repeated very soon.

There were lots of children in the cafe, although it is not really a cafe for children. (Which is a bit sad, I think.)

As I already mentioned at the beginning, I always feel a bit unsure about going back to work after having holidays. But it felt good and right to be back. Nice colleagues and a warm welcome. Of course, things got more stressful as the week continued but that is life.


The photo at the top of this entry shows a little Granny Stripe Bag I did last December as a birthday present for a dear friend. As described here I started with a chain of 51 stitches and once I understood the pattern I experimented with the length of the chain at the beginning to alter the size of the bag. It was kind of a recycling project because my idea was to use scraps of yarn. It worked out quite well up to the point where I had to decide about the finish of the little bag. I wanted to add a zipper (and had even bought one) but than had to realize that sewing in a zipper needs a more the advanced level of sewing knowledge. So I just added a nice inside to the bag and postponed the zipper-problem.

For now I am going to enjoy my weekend and I hope you do the same.

    Dein Blog ist eine wirklich schöne Idee und wird mir sicherlich viele neue Anregungen und Motivation für meine kleineren und größeren Handarbeitsprojekte geben.
    Nur leider ist mein Englisch nicht so gut, aber wenn ich etwas nicht verstehe, dann frage ich dich einfach.

      Liebe Leni,

      wie du sicher schon gesehen hast, schreibe ich mal auf Deutsch und mal auf Englisch – je nach Tageslaune. Also wird sicher auch einiges für dich dabei sein.

      LG, Mona
