You Always Wear Such Bright Clothes

And here I have once again broken a promise of writing once a week but I will try and be better. Here is a new entry to my 30 day challenge.

The second entry was to be to write about something that somebody said to me and I never forgot. This is something that my brother-in-law once said to me. At the time he was only my sister’s boyfriend. I had bought myself a “Svea”-hat and he said: “I am disappointed in you for buying such a teenager piece of clothes. You always wear such bright clothes and now you’ve given into the pressures of being a teenager.”

I did not see it as an insult. I chose to concentrate on the part where he was proud of me usually being brave enough to wear clothes that make me stick out in a crowd. I love colors and to this date I wear brightly colored clothes. And contrary to his belief, I did not buy the hat because it was popular among people my age at the time, I bought it because I liked the shape and texture of the hat.

I have since lost the hat, but these words always stayed with me.



A book mark


I made this cross stitch bookmark based on a pattern in The World of Cross Stitch issue 207. I used different colors than in the pattern because I wanted a little brighter bookmark than the original.  This’ ll brighten up my reading πŸ™‚

Crochet baskets

I was in  need of a basket to put my smaller WIP’s and I found this pattern. I made one and I liked it so much that I had to make another and will probably make some more. I don’t know what I’ll use them for but I have so much little stuff that I probably won’t have any problem filling the πŸ™‚



I already put my unfinished chibi gomamon a nd other little projects in πŸ™‚ This is a little different from the pattern, but the idea is the same πŸ™‚



Here’s the other one. I’ll probably use it as my candy-stash, so I’ll have all my candy in the same place instead of all over my room πŸ˜›
