It has been a long time since I last made a doily. The pattern is from a 27 years old magazine, so I think it's ok to share it here, if you want to make one for yourself or as a gift. Mine is already on the way to Poland, to a dear friend. The cosmea flowers are still blooming beautifully. These are the sorts I have in the garden at the moment. Have a lovely day + until soon again!
We are having grey days and the air is getting colder which I actually enjoy a lot, as the air seems cleaner than in summer. I have finished the crochet bag that I have been working on for a week now and made some pictures of it in the garden. In the moment I wanted to start taking pictures, a grasshopper sat down on the bag and accompanied me. I will share my needlework projects here soon, so stay tuned and have a cozy day!
I found this beautiful dead flower chafer in the forest. It's color is really mesmerizing! And I was lucky enough to get a close-up image of one of my favorite insects: the white plume moth, in German it's called "Federgeistchen" which means "little feather ghost" if you translate it directly. It really describes perfectly how it looks :) It's such an etherial creature!
Because I was not able to do anything in the garden for so long, everything grew wildly and the greenhouse turned into a real jungle as you can see! I had cucumber salad nearly every day, but now the plants have started to wither and sooner or later I have to clear them out and prepare everything for winter. This year I had over 7 wasps' nests inside the greenhouse. We are getting well with one another luckily. They do not behave aggressive against me so far. On the weekend we had quite gloomy weather, I started a new kombucha and made cookies with fresh apples from the garden. Have a good start into the new week!
