Stylecraft bloggers tour 2016

By |October 28th, 2016|colors and yarns, stool, stylecraft yarn|9 Comments

Hello, I am very happy to be part of this year stylecraft special aran and chuncky bloggers tour 😊 

The colors are just wonderful and when I received them I couldn’t pick  a project to use them. They are fresh, beautiful smooth and soft to touch. I received the chuncky pack 💜

Aren’t they gorgeous ? 

Now what did I do with them??? Tadaaaa

 A cover for a blue wood stool I had at home 💙

For the cover I used this simple yet effective pattern that tou can find here 💙

Alternating the granny colored rounds with the parchment small sc rounds 💙

I loved how it turned out…

The more I was crocheting the more I was in love ❤

There is something magical with the chunky yarn… it is fast 😊 and it finishes quickly 🐝 and the result is always lovely!

Once you reach the corners of your upper stool face, you continue without increasing in the corners (see the blue round in the above pic) so that the crochet don’t stay flat and take the 3D shape of the stool…

For the last round I chose to make a simple edging with picots ❤ I love picots ❤ They are my favorite for edging ❤

I really enjoyed making this cover… and love how it turned out ❤

Don’t forget to visit the lovely blog of the talented Sandra tomorrow to see what she has done with her pack 💗

Hello my friend,

I finished yesterday a new baby blanket: the box of sweets blanket.

This blanket is for a baby girl due in February 💜

I love how simple the design is and yet so effective.

I love the colors and the little colorful bits of round4 in each square.

I love the edging and the little picots.

It is crocheted with stylecraft special DK and a 3.5mm hook.

I hope it will be well cherished by both the baby and her mom for many years to come 💜
Wishing you a beautiful weekend!

Crochet, tunisian crochet and knitting 💜

By |August 30th, 2016|Crocheted blankets, for babies, knitting, Patchwork crocheted squares, tunisian crochet|6 Comments


I don’t know what is happening with me these days. I keep starting different projects, learning new techniques and very much enjoying it 😊 I have now more than 10 wips 🙈 but it is not a big deal… I will finish them… I know I will…

Last week I learned tunisian crochet and began a cushion…

Then I started two different baby blankets (I have many pregnant cousins around 😊)

The first one is made with different colored squares joined with cream…

The second one is a mixture of V stitch and granny…

And reminds me of a field of tulips 🌷

And then I came upon a lovely pic of a knitted blanket on Instagram and couldn’t resist learning that particular square that looked very complicated to me and my poor knitting skills…

But it was quiet easy after watching some youtube videos 😊

It is called a memory blanket. And the squares, miltered squares.

Now I am completely addicted… I wake up each morning earlier than everybody in the house just to knit and knit and knit… I loooove it ❤
Wishing you a lovely day my friends,
