Spring is coming

...let's celebrate it with Japanese flowers! They are one of my favourite motifs - along with granny hexagons :-)
The weather's been gloriously springey lately - beautiful sunshine, but icy cold winds, so as much as I felt the need to start up a really sunny project, I soon realized it's better be something warm and cozy.
So this one is going to be spring in spirit (flower motifs and -- the people who know me already know the colour - lime green) but super warm woollyness in practical reality :-)

Clouds and moss

The colours of that beautiful wool really inspired me - while I was working with it, the grey-blue started to show a lovely cloudy pattern --  my mind wondered to mossy forests, waterfalls, and soon enough I was thinking about elves and all sorts of woodland creatures.... and so the Urban Elves collection was started  :-)
