Wearing Flowers in My Hair

MissNeriss’ beautiful post honoring a fellow blogger who is no longer with us yet leaves her bright personality, beautiful memories and her amazing designs with all of us!

MissNeriss

Today I had another post scheduled.  I was going to share the tutorial for the Colour Block Baby Blanket I knitted, but today is not the day for that.  Today instead I’ll be wearing flowers in my hair for Wink.

Today a family is laying their beautiful daughter to rest.  Their daughter who inspired thousands, no – hundreds of thousands of people all over the world.  Their daughter who loved colour and lived music.

Wink was one of the first crochet bloggers that I found when I first started out, and I was even more excited to discover that she lived close by (well, kind of).  I felt connected.  Like we were bound to be besties.  Just because we both crocheted, and lived within 100km of one another (I know, lunacy right?).

Playing with Hypertufa

DIY Hypertufa Garden Art : Hypertufa How To

As they say: When it rains, it pours. 🙂

If you can guess, I’m – rather coyly – trying to tell you that I’m posting one more link that deviates from my ‘strictly DIY – strictly hypertufa’ rules. Having said that, I do submit that this link is not exactly ‘non-hypertufa’ but on the other hand, it is not exactly a DIY tutorial either.

Published by a self-confessed ‘complicatingly simple gardener’, ‘Playing with Hypertufa’ is more of a running, pictorial commentary from Jester – a DIY gardening and garden art enthusiast and a blogger – of her practical experiences and experiments making various garden art objects with hypertufa.

Starting with the basic hypertufa recipe, she moves on to making bowls, pots, mushrooms and planters, all with pictures. I sure found her post enjoyable and useful; hope you will too:
