Good morning sweeties,
December is always such a busy month. Days run very fast and it is always in December that I crochet the least. But I always find 5 minutes here and 5 minutes there to make some stitches and breathe deaply and calm down
This week I worked with my Hexagons blanket. It is always a pleasure to pick up my Debbie Bliss Cachmerino aran yarn and do one hexagon or two The yarn is soooo perfect that it is really a moment of bliss holding the hook and crocheting
I really love the colors of this blanket. Not strong but bold in a beautiful way
The girls are still in their “perler-beads-mode” and I love to watch them play and create while I crochet.
Enjoy the moment sweeties, that what I repeat to myself all day long
Wishing you a happy and blessed weekend!

How are you? November was a good month …
… full of crochet and “homey” stuff and December is here already …
… the tree is up …
… with all its colorful and handmade decorations…
… the Nativity set is back on the shelves too…
… Every corner around the house smells like Christmas …
… The little Christmas stockings made 3 years ago are back on the mantel too … (For pattern click HERE)
… It really feels like Christmas …
… Specially in the evenings when it is really cosy and warm and good to be home …
… The nice and warm blankets are back on the beds too…
… and my new buddy is feeling good with its new crocheted jacket …
Soooo, hello December We are really really happy to have you back
Stay warm and cosy and enjoy December my friends :)
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

This is not a long post just a quick one to say hello how are you? hope everything is good in your part of the world
My life is a little bit chaotic these days. It is always like that in November and December. It seems like time is running very fast and sometimes I feel like I wake up on monday morning and close my eyes and it is already friday evening… yes time flies… and I keep reminding myself to slow down… slow down and enjoy the moment… slow down and manage to do some crochet… an hour per day… not more… slow down and breathe
So I am right now edging my squares with black…
It is taking me like forever but I know deep inside that the result will be amazing
And I am working too on Sarah’s bedspread whenever I can. I’m progressing very slowly on it but ripples are always a joy to work on so I am not in a hurry to finish it… not at all
And while I crochet, the girls are now completely addicted to the perler beads (hama beads). They spent most of their free time on these
Their little colorful creations make me very happy and I am proud of their creativity. The two birds of the first pic and the clown on the second pic are totally created by them and when I asked my 7 years daughter why her clown’s mouth is not centered in his face she replied that he is whistling and that made me laugh
Well, my friend, this is all that I have to share with you today!
I am wishing you a lovely weekend with your loved ones!
Stay warm and enjoy the moment

Good morning sweet people,
The baby rainbow ripple blanket is done and I can proudly show it to you
I’ve had some hard time taking pics of this beauty because the colors are really tricky to show as they are “live” but I did my best and believe me the “real” blanket is much more beautiful than in the pics. It is softer, the colors are melting together in much lovelier way…
Well, As long as you can not see it “live” Here are some pics for you
Here are some techinical infos for you
* Yarn: It is a very soft and snuggly yarn called Nako Baby. A mixture of acrylic and polyamid.
* Colors: The colors of the rainbow: Blue, purple, light purple, red, orange, yellow, green, aqua
* Hook: 3.5mm
* Pattern: Ripples of happiness. HERE
* Basic chain: 154 ch. Number of rows: 68 (every time 4rows of each color)
* Edging: A simple row of sc with picot on the ripple sides. I love to leave the straight sides as they are
This above picture is the best one that shows the colors as they are “live”
Voila voilou I hope that you liked my rainbow
And I hope that it will be cherished by both the mother and the baby boy due in February
Sending a rainbow of colors your way. If it is raining, if it is grey, put some colors in your heart and on your hook and the day will be a beautiful one
Wishing you a colorful weekend!
