Good Days are rare!

Yesterday has been a real great one. I had almost no pain, felt strong and motivated, i even could move all of my left toes! :)
It´s been nearly a month since i could do that the last time.
So it seems all the those bad side effects have been worth it, and the steroids finally work!

Since i have more bad days than good ones for four month now, i try to use every better day to the fullest. and often i overdo it (both my parents and my doctors are not so happy with me about that!)

But i felt good and the sun was shining so i did a lot of homework. Cleaning up and finally repotting my chives :)

Doesn´t it look delicious?

And after my physical therapy (which was pretty exhausting) i had to relax a bit and used the time to surf a bit in the world wide web, and there i found this Tutorial for a pretty Spring Wreath. (thank you, lovely Rachel for sharing!)

I thought about making a cute Wreath for my front door for some weeks now, honestly a plane white door is getting kind of boring after some time.
When i saw Rachels´ i knew this was the kind of thing i wanted to do and fortunatly i already had everything i needed at home - lucky me, half of my small apartment is full of fabric and yarn :)

I tried different fabric combinations and decided it had to be that yellow, apricot and a fabric with little roses printed on it.

After cutting out straps (which didn´t take long) i started knotting:  

a lot of knotting :)
The Wreath before and after i did some cutting of the endings

After everything was nice and neat and the way i wanted it, i attached a big blue bow (because i really like bows, who doesn´t?), and ... TADA:
Looks like Spring, don´t you think? :)

I really, really like the Outcome! So again: a little bag of kisses for Lady Rachel at R&R Workshop for her great Tutorial!
