V stitch square

Good morning lovely people!

I’ve been through some creative days this past weeks and I still can not understand what really happened with me… I was hit by Mrs Lola the little owl idea and once I did it and put its pattern online … the very next day… while drinking my morning coffee I was hit by another idea… a V stitch square … and I was all day long so very hyper excited about it…. couldn’t think or do something else… was like crazy… drawing on papers …and then throwing the papers in the bin… holding my hook and yarn… then throwing them on the sofa and taking back my paper and pen… crazy crazy crazy :)

After all these drawings and tryings, crocheting and unravelling, for long hours… I was like after a long gym session… totally K.O :D

Then I sat quietly, took again my hook and yarn and begin crocheting …

And then it was here…so clearly in front of my eyes…and I was like oh oooooh oh oh oh :) very happy… soooo very happy. I phoned my husband in its office to announce to him that I made a new square… and he did not understand why I was so talking like a crazy excited girl for just a square… poor guy :D :D

So, lovely people, after the huge success of the V stitch blanket on Instagram and everywhere on the net let me introduce you to the V stitch square…

1

my latest creation…my little baby :)

3

Isn’t it beautiful? I just LOOOOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVE it :) I tried it using different yarns ….

2

The chunky one will be transformed into a cushion… and the others … I think a blanket with a deep grey joining….

4

What do you think? Isn’t it gorgeous?

5

It is an addictive kind of square…once you begin you can not let down your hook… anymore ;) And it works up fast… very fast…

6

You can make your square as big as you want… using it to make blankets, cushions, potholders, coasters, table runners and much much more :)

7

Once you crochet the first 4 rounds it gets very easy to follow… and you’ll enjoy hours and hours of soothing and calming crochet therapy :)

I draw the chart for this square, explaining the symbols used with US, UK and even French terms. It is a CHART not a written pattern. I am sorry but I just can not explain charts with written words… It is soooo complicated for me as my background language is french…

You can buy it for 3.5 USD from  below:

Once the payment is done, you’ll receive WITHIN 24 HOURS the colorful chart in a JPEG format ready to print.

Hope you’ll enjoy this wonderful square :)

Sending you love and kisses

12 pics of happiness shared with you my friends :)

I hope you liked my V stitch blankie :)

Now for the technical info part:

Yarn: Nako Vizon a 100% acrylic yarn

Hook: 4.5mm

Beginning chain: 146

V stitch chart: HERE

Edging: Pompoms: Inspired from the lovely blog of Vanessa: HERE 

I made the pompoms and just tied them with the last row of my v stitch.

To make the pompoms: I used the Clover Making pompoms. size: small. These are super great and easy. You’ll make a pompom in less than a minute :) You can buy them online from HERE.

My piece of advice: Must try the Vstitch. It is an easy, relaxing, soothing, beautiful, textured and addictive stitch.

I’ll leave you now with a last pic of me under my blankie before making the edge. It was on Sunday morning. Excuse the sleepy hair and face ;)

Sending you vibes of happiness!

Take care

Crochet is my therapy

Good morning beautiful people!

I hope that you are ok, happy and healthy wherever you are.

Today’s post is an update of my current crochet wips. What else to share with you my likeminded friends? ;)

1

Most of the time, specially in the evenings, I crochet so I don’t think much, I crochet so I don’t look at the news, I crochet so I don’t become crazy… That’s why every week I have a lot of crochet to share… It is my medicine, my anti stress, my kind of escape for a better world where everyone live in PEACE with everyone. The world has become an horrible place so much violence, blood and injustice that you have to find your way to not become insane :)

So, my dear friend, here is what I am up to these days… Working on 3 different wips

* A granny squares bedspread for our bed…just grannies surrounded with black… I am making now the squares will join them later… I am not even half way done but I love doing grannies, they are my favorite that’s why no hurry …I am taking my time enjoying every stitch :)

*And finally my latest addiction: The Vstitch blanket :) if you’re following me on Instagram or Facebook you already know about how much I am addicted to this project  :D You have to try it! It is … well… ADDICTIVE ;)

Well… my sweeties… These were the 3 wips I am working on at the moment. Crochet is my therapy to face this cruel world and the war that is threatening my beautiful country… I need your prayers my friends… I don’t know if I’ll have internet or no in the coming days due to the situation here :( It is really awful :( Please pray for my country and for its army… Pray for the innocent people… Pray for a better tomorrow…

Thank you so much dear readers… It really means a lot having you here :)

Peace and Love

Turkey 2014

We’ve had a wonderfully sunshiny beautiful week in Turkey (Letoonia club – Fethiyeh). Enjoying the sun, the beach, the sand in our toes :)

We’ve really needed this one week vacation away from everything to recharge our batteries (mine was really really empty :) )
