Summer is such a special time for us, this is when you’ll find us working in the garden at all sorts of weird hours (it doesn’t get dark here right now) and this is also the time you’ll see us driving our beloved vintage VW “Beetle” from 1969, which we only take out of winter storage to drive during mid-May, June, July, August and early September.
The car has been washed and prepped for the summer season (and after we washed it, it rained immediately, of course) and we have added our Hedvig blanket to the back seat, as we think that the colours of the throw, as well the design, fit the look and atmosphere of our car perfectly!
Summer also means that we get to wear bright and cheerful colours and work on all those crochet projects that we have designed specifically for the season! So you don’t want to miss this week’s tutorial on our colourful crochet tote bag! You can get the pattern in our web shop and watch the tutorial at the end of this post.
