Little Crochet Balloons

This week a good friend of mine will turn 40. I thought it would be nice to bake her a cake and embellish it with little crochet balloons and a Hip Hip Hooray quote made of colored wire, besides the 'real' present. For the cake I used only two, what you see here is what was left (I became really excited after the first balloon). 

You found the pattern here, via Annemaries Haakblog.

Popsicle Garland

Last week I had some minor surgery on my knee, but recovering will take quite some time, the physical therapist told me yesterday. I'm not allowed to walk for six weeks on the leg that was operated, and after that there will follow another six weeks in which I'm allowed to put just 50% of my weight on it. I was a bit upset after this news had reached me, because I thought I would be back at work in just four weeks. But as an OR-nurse, walking, standing, lifting, tilting, bending, turning and other such things doing all the time, working is out of the question. 

But: always look on the bright side! Twelve weeks of reading!! Finally time to go through all those books piled up beside my bed!

And I make some things for my daughters. Like this:

Bunting and Tassels

One day behind with my post, due to a knee operation, but now I'm back on track, so here it is!

I've made a garland like this before, a couple of years ago, in other colors and now wanted to make a new one, in fresh white. 

See the Tutorials section here on my blog for the pattern, in case you want to make one, too.
