Happy rainy holidays

Crochet animal patterns

This is what mice do best, hanging around in my little garden. And look at the picture, it was even sunny! I was looking forward to making another summer Popkes picture, with new dolls and a lovely setting, but because of this years summer weather, my only choice would have been a picture of Popkes with umbrellas or in rain suits and that is not very appealing.

Actually, I don’t really mind this cool summer weather with a downpour every day. I am not in my element when it is too warm because I love doing active things and when it gets hot, I become slow and tired too soon and it spoils all the fun.

Our summer holiday has just started and I am looking forward to doing all sorts of things. I will probably work less, but I can’t stop completely. I just ordered a gorgeous shade of green (light highland green) to design a crochet crocodile. I felt like something completely different and a crocodile and armadillo pattern seemed just perfect. I have no idea how that will go, so I can’t make any promises there will be patterns soon. Let’s just see how it all works out.

In the mean time, do enjoy summer dear crafters! Even on those rainy or way too hot days, there are plenty of fun things to do, or crochet ;).
