The Akelej Wallhanging

The Story Behind...

The Akelej Wallhanging is a gorgeous contemporary design inspired by the fauna of the Island on which I live, my beautiful Ornö.

My love for flowers are everlasting and with this make I wish to take them to the next level by joining them as I go; from one flower to the next, and ending it all with beautiful wooden beads and raw tassels. 

The Akelej Wallhanging was first published in Inside Crochet Magazine Issue 123 and will be released here on SistersInStitch in June 2020.

“A wonderfully quick make and ideal for stash busting.

– Inside Crochet Magazine

Can’t wait to see which colors you will use for yours.

  • Akelej Wall Hanging .

I had the most amazing day today! 
Minutes after coming home from work, the postman delivered a package from Sweden! 
It was the @insidecrochet issue with the pattern of this gorgeous wall hanging designed by @crochetedbytess 
I made it smaller and did some adjustments so it would fit the knitting needle my other friend @sara_van_herreweghe gave me. 
I really love the way it turned out! (Swipe to see the full hanging) .

But the package also had a little gift!
She's been teasing me all week that she put something special in it. But she didn't spill the beans. (I know that wasn't easy 😅)
And it was a special gift!
She made the flower from my Romantic Throw but she made it in fine thread. 
It's the most lovely little cute flower! 
Actually she made two, one for me and one for her! Isn't that sweet! (Swipe again to see my cute little flower) .

And because Tess really wanted to see my reaction when I opened the gift, we decided to do our very first video chat! 
That was so much fun! We talked and laughed and talked and if it wasn't for us being hungry and not having food in our studios, we would have talked more 😂
Yes, I think we'll do this again! .

That was my day! What have you been up to today?
.

ps: my plan for this afternoon was to do the ironing. That didn't happen 😂
  • The finishing is questionable, but I am loving this pretty #akelejwallhanging 
Made in 8/8 cotton it turned out pretty big (almost 30x30 inches)
Lets hope the birthdaygirl can find wallspace for it!🌸
Pattern: @crochetedbytess can be found in issue 123 of @insidecrochet

Until then, here is a little sneak peak of what’s coming your way this very Friday (5/6)! 🧡💛❤️

This evening I want to pop in and say thank you. Simple as that, nothing more nothing less. 💛
.
All I have done (and probably will do) wouldn’t be half as fun if it wasn’t for this amazing community of supporting and wonderful people here on this social platform.
.
Each and every cheer you on; I carry with me close to my heart and use in all the work I do. 💖 Thank you.
