Pink pink and more pink

Happy Wednesday readers 🙂

I think I have mentioned this before but my fiancé has a huge family, which means a lot of birthdays! 

I’ve been trying to gift handmade as often as possible as I think that people in general appreciate the time and effort put into the gift. This time is no exception!

The next person having her birthday absolutely adores pink. Like she has 3 or 4 Pinterest boards with pink things on them. Most of her wardrobe is pink, her car is pink, her handbags are pink, and I’m sure that if she could she would even have pink hair. Obviously, I have to gift her something pink.

Remember this pink cowl? 

I gifted it to her already as an early present. And to go with it, I got the perfect idea. Combining her love for pink with her love for… Wine! 

   

  

  

  

  

She will now have her very own pink wine glasses. The first one only has pink on it and reads “Pink Queen”. The second reads “La vie en rose” which means “life in pink” in French and also has some pink flowers and green stems. 

I’m hoping she loves them, because, although I don’t like pink, I really liked how they turned out! 

Have you also given handmade gifts before? Did people appreciate as much as you hoped?

Back to normal

Hello awesome people! 

I’m back to my normal posting schedule! I must say that being back home has made my life easier for crafting. 

I got to try my new loom and I’ve already put together a very nice and soft cowl using the infinity stitch. I was so surprised how fast this one actually worked up. 

     
 It is still a bit hot to wear at the moment but it will be nice for the winter. 

I have also been obsessing over those slippers seen on Pinterest but I couldn’t find any pattern for them until now! I couldn’t find any local shop selling Drops Eskimo yarn so instead I got this gorgeous Vera Moda yarn.  

 I love the feel of it but it was a bit hard to work with at first because it breaks easily if the yarn untwists. 

So far, this is what I’ve got.   

And the finished product should look something like that. 

 
That’s it for my Wednesday, I hope you all have good plans for tomorrow night (we’re going to see fireworks, I’m pretty excited!)

Lots of love

Emma
