Pressed flowers from Nena and colorful earrings

Uhhhh!!! I am mad at my cardigan! I can't seem to finish the sleeves well! The original pattern has short sleeves, but I wanted long ones and the problem is that the shell stitch doesn't seem to look good when I am decreasing stitches. I riped it several times and nothing works. I have one more idea and I think that it is going to work. I have left it for now, because at the moment I can't seem to have the patience of doing it again. I will try it in a few days.

On a happy note, I have received a beautiful present from Nena. She made me handmade bookmarks and cards. I love her pressed flowers work and now I am proud owner of Nena's pressed flowers! Thank you Nena!!!!!!! I love them!!!!


My friend Frosi asked me to make earrings for her. She said "I want something very colourful, something yellow, brown, green...." I was looking at her and said to my self: "What??? Colors???? Is she crazy???"
I love colors, but not on me. And that's why so far I have never made anything that says colors. OK, I made several socks, but the yarn was "self striped" in different colors and besides them I don't think that I ever made something that is colorful. I always use one dominant color and add one flower or some kind of embellishment in a different color. It's the same thing with my clothes. I was struggling for two days and thinking what can I do with colors. At the end, came up with "some colors" and I think that this is the best that I could do. I know that these are not very cheerful earrings, but It's me.

The first three pieces are crocheted and the last one is made from cork (from wine bottles) and decoupaged.
I'm waiting for her to decide which one she will get.

Apsolutno se ne razumijem u vezenje, pletenje i takve stvari, ali meni i ovaj nedovršen kardigan izgleda odlično, sigurna sam da ćeš ga dovesti do savršenstva, a naušnice koje si napravila su upraavo takve - upravo savršene.

I like the earrings and hope they will introduce some more colour to your world :) BTW, why aren't pictures clickable? I'd like to enlarge them and I can't :(

Sve je super! A najljepše su mi ipak one plutene naušnice!

Nadam se da ces naci rjesenje za kardigan jer ga ja s nestrpljenjem cekam!
No, mislim da nije nuzno da oduzimas očice - ja volim kad su malo zvonoliki!
BTW - nausnice su MEGA - narocito desne

Divno radis, sjajne mindjusice.
Hvala sto si pokazala moj poklon, mnogo bolje izgleda kad neko ume da postavi i fotografise tako divni kao ti.
