The girls are at home for the summer holidays so I managed last week some me-time in my craft room to finish some paintings for my sister’s home before the-children-time which will last for 3 hole months …. wooohooooo
I started this painting before even getting pregnant with baby Joe and stopped it…now it is done and I kind of like it even though it is too colorful…
and I painted two flowery ones..I know that my sister loves them… Hope that she will love these
Now I have to tell goodbye to this beloved place … hoping to be back to it very very soon …
Have a cheerful week

Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments and e-mails concerning the table runner… I am very happy that you liked it
How was your week end? Mine was lovely… lot of crochet…ripples, ripples … joyful ripples…
Do you remember the baby boy blanket I started here? Well, I worked on it… Have to finish it before the mummy gives birth in July
I’ve made some progress…look…
I am not used to work with these colours…that’s why it is taking me ages to finish it …
but I am loving it so far….
And I started something with the lovely yarn of Joumana…Remember here?
This alpaca yarn is terrific… so beautiful…so soft…I had to make something for me to wear it on my skin It is selfish I know
So, I started a scarf….it will be a long long ripples-scarf for me … I love these colors…
Did you spot my new phone case? Of course you did I love it!
Today’s post was all about ripples …I am working on my happy blankie too …
I am so blessed I have crochet in my life Do you feel the same?
Have a lovely week my friend!

Oh hello lovelies!
It is such a beautiful day today and I’m in love… deeply madly crazy in love with my latest finished project… Are you ready to fall too? I’m sure you are
Let’s have some close up pics …
I love love love this simple graphic square…I think it is simple but beautiful… and I love it even more because it is the fruit of my imagination… my own drawing…
and I love the whole result…the table runner in all its glory…all these bright and beautiful colors mixed together in a lovely patchwork…
I feel happy whenever I enter the sitting room
Now for the part you are all waiting for: The how to…
I crocheted this table runner with a thin cotton yarn called “Camilla 6/4″ and a 2mm crochet hook. I made it by joining as I go the squares together in a randomly use of colors…
I drew for you my friend the graphic chart of this square… It is right here:
As you noticed, the joining part was made as-I-go with round 5 (in black in the chart) and it is done where I put the arrows…(Instead of the middle chain a slip joining stitch)
Each square was done in a different color and I made a very simple edging (1sc, 4ch, 1sc) all around the whole table runner…
I am in love with it (did I already told you that?? I don’t think so ) and I think that this graphic square will be beautiful if used to make coasters, cushions or a summer blanket why not?
So, my lovely friend, I’ll have to leave you now with a last pic…
and wish you a wonderful day!
P.S: I draw all my graphic charts including this one using Corel Draw (a graphic design software) as many of you keep asking me
and one last thing: Some of you asks me if I can explain some of the charts with written words and I am so sorry about that but I just can’t do it sometimes… I am unable to do it It is too difficult for me as I myself cannot follow an english written pattern not yet! but one day…
Kisses to all!

Helloooooo there! How are you?
I’ve been playing with my hook and some cotton yarn in order to make something for my sitting room table… a patchwork table runner…not too big… something simple… a very graphic square I draw and which I am very pleased with right now…
It is very simple and graphic and I kind of like that It remind me of my graphic design years in college
I am doing a lot of these squares right now and I’m gonna join them as-I-go…It will be very colorful but with a simple design… I’ll prepare a graphic pattern for it also…if you’re interested in making one too… this square can be used to make coasters, cushions and even summer blankets …why not
On the other side, I’m spending a lot of my me-time in my craft room with my brushes and painting Oh how I love that!!!!
I’ve spoiled myself with a set of new brushes and I am right now finishing a very old big painting I started before getting pregnant with baby Joe…yes, before and that was long ago
Here is a little peek …
It is too colorful …but I kind of like that
I hope that you are making things that makes you happy today…
I am sending you kisses, hugs, sunshine and happy thoughts
Have a good day!

Yes, it is FINALLY done I’m very pleased with the result but I must confess I did not enjoyed the whole making process because it was my first one-color-project I am not used to work with just one color …I get bored easily
The pattern is lovely…It is a free Lion brand’s one and you can find it on ravelry under the name: South bay shawlette… here
If you like the pattern and you are used to work single color projects… I sooo recommend you give it a go
The result is beautiful! don’t you think?
Wishing you a beautiful week my friend

Laying all the squares I’ve already crochet on my kitchen table gave me joy this morning …
48 squares so far… I’ve had to show you…
48 happy squares I soooo enjoyed crocheting I am deeply in love with this blanket and with every step of its making
I’m trying now to sketch a new graphic pattern for a square I’ll use to crochet a table runner for my sitting room… A lot of concentration needed … More about this very soon
And you? What are your small pleasures of the day? Are you enjoying what you’re making ?
Wishing you lovely moments whatever you’re doing today !
