blóm in progress

my work is going slow, but never the less every step i work out gives it everytime a bit more form. i want blóm to be a work in progress and tells you everytime a little history. taking time patiently for my work and enjoying to make it, and let it flourish naturally, that is how i want it to be. 
i find inspiration during my walks in my favorite park, i must confess the city becomes for me more and more a place i try to avoide, for my health espcially, but ofcourse i hope to go back for a coffee in my favorite coffee place soon, but at this moment it are mostely homemade coffee, who are nice and actually the best coffee-times i can have.
the babyplant is doing great, maybe soon i can make a update of how he has grown until now, this little plant is very dear to me. 
there is nothing better then holding babyplant

plants and crochet

Every  day i try to work on my projects, it goes slow but that is not a problem as long that i can enjoy working on them and making things in the way that is possible for me, then i am happy. I don't know if you can remember my aloë vera plants cuttings i once received from a friendly lady through the mail ? It is been such time back now, and to think back about this and look now how the plant cuttings have grown from baby until now, it is something i really love to see.
I am working on a new cushion serie that i will call blóm
They are inspired on the flowers that i choose to cherish and that i dry. I want to pure out the meaning of this flowerprocess i always keep repeating : buy flowers, or flowers i find in nature, enjoy them as long as i can and then i dry them and make a picture of them afterwards. I use the pictures as inspiration and i try to work out a sort of flower cushion, in the way how i think a flower cushion can be made, and so i work out the line of Belle Fleur de Lis in my crochet work more deeper and personal. I looked up how you crochet flowers and i tried it out, but i could not find myself back in this, so i just tried and work out some stiches i thought of maybe i do it like this or maybe like this and then i found a way of working where i can find myself back in it.
Last week i went to visit studio meez, we went to look all the lovely plants in the big greenhouses of the botinical garden, it was the first time i came there and i am really happy studio meez showed me this paradise. I will upload most of the pictures i took there on my tumblr page and i show also a few overhere, i took so may picture , that i don't know which one i must show.  I wish you a very lovely start of the weekend tomorrow and until very soon again .
