Good morning sweeties,
Saturday morning, a cup of hot coffee and you, just you behind your screen, keeping me company in the very first hours of this glorious morning…
An update for you of my current crochet wips… what else to share? and little things of my everyday too
My Vintage stripy blanket… slowly growing… I’m really enjoying each and every stitch of this eclectic piece of crochet
My beloved filofaxes… I am now completly addicted to them
My new owl, added to my collection… It is big but very cute…and I loved it the second I spotted it on a local shop…
My Crochet Mood blanket, slowly growing too…
I love it too much…It is one of my favorites
The ponchos of my girls… almost done… yes… almost… Hope to finish them before spring
Did you spot my kickers in the pic above… I am in love with my old comfy shoes…they remind me my childhood… and I always have a pair to wear when I’m feeling a little blue They cheer me up
Back to my coffee, before the children wake up and the weekend starts
Weekends are always exciting but I feel like I am dead on Sunday nights Do you feel the same?
Have a super one my friend!

Some pics of my week so far. I love to share with you these simple moments of joy of my everyday
* Enjoying the very first hours of my morning with a cup of coffee, a little crochet and some planning
* Looking around at my messy house after the children has gone for school and daycare and enjoying being alone… completely alone… just me and myself
*Progressing on the girls ponchos and dreaming of spring
* Drawing and coloring with my oldest while she was feeling sick and stayed home. This girl is very talented with choosing and mixing colors and I am proud
* Enjoying my one square/day of the Crochet Mood Blanket 2014, watching it slowly grow and dreaming about how big it will be once done (January and February in the pics above)
Before leaving you today I want to apologize for being such a bad blogger… I know that I barely write a comment or reply to an email or comment and I am really ashamed of myself… But believe me, I always write my posts in a hurry… I am always in a hurry… so excuse my lack of writing back to you I promise to make efforts… I always visit, read your posts but don’t comment Bad me….
Wishing you a lovely weekend!

This post is again about my hooky update Sometimes I feel like I breathe crochet
I choose some yarn… bright and beautiful colorful yarn to start the girls ponchos… I love when children wear colorful clothes… Don’t you agree?
And I started the two ponchos together…
Christina, my oldest girl (8years) chose the yellow to begin with… Here is her poncho so far…
And Sarah (6years old) chose the fushia to start with
The yarn I am using is called Nako Lux Ninnos a very soft yarn with bright and lovely colors… It is worked with a 3.5mm hook…
I chose for the girls to make this granny poncho… It is very soothing and relaxing to work on… very simple pattern to follow once you make your first two rounds… I just love this design
You can find the pattern right here
I’ve added also more stripes to my vintage stripy blanket…
I love the colors melting on this project… and I love to pick it on the evenings while watching TV with hubby
And my crochet mood blanket is slowly growing. In the pic above you can see the first 20 days of February…
and on this one you can see it all (January + 20 days of February) …
What do you think? Are you in love like myself?
You can find here the chart of the squares and how I am joining them together as I go with the last round
I am back to my yellow filofax and using it every night to plan the next day is always a pleasure for me… I love when everything is clearly written on a paper… I am “old-fashion” I know
Have to go now…
I’m wishing you a beautiful day!

was a good kind of hooky week…
A lot happened around here
My crochet mood blanket 2014 is coming up nicely…
I am loving working on it and sometimes I feel like I want to finish it all and not do just one square per day
These are the first 14 days of February
I chose some yarn to begin a new project too…
A vintage stripy blanket…
This blanket is crocheted with rows of trebles only… I began with a 150 chain and I am working the tr in the space between the trs of the previous row … that is giving to it this lovely effect I love it so far… and I’ve progressed on it too
It will be a big gorgeous blankie I am sure already
I love how the colors are melting together…this reminds me a little the moss stitch effect …but this is a lot quicker to crochet
Working on big rows is very soothing and calming…
The best medicine when your children are grumpy and sick
And I am also still working on my granny with white border…
and enjoying it OOOH the pleasure of crocheting granny squares … I just love crocheting them…
I’ll leave you now with this last pic of some gorgeous yarn I bought just for the pleasure…without any project plan for them in my head
And this is for me the best kind of shopping on earth
Have a wonderful weekend my friends, thank you for your visit and see you very very soon
Kisses and love
P.S: You keep asking me about the yarn I use for my projects. It is mostly turkish brands (Nako, Mirage) I buy from my local store here in Beirut. And unfortunately you can not find them online They are very similar to the Stylecraft special DK a brand you can order easily online

I like to post this special poem to my heart each Valentine’s day on this blog here It is written by Gibran Khalil Gibran a Lebanese poet we are very proud of
You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore. You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days. And, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God. But let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each others cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each others keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each others shadow.
Gibran Khalil Gibran
Happy Valentine’s day to you my special friends,
May LOVE be always in your home and in your heart!
