Hello there!

Good morning sweeties,

I’ve been away from this blog due to some family time, school preparations and home organisation….pfff… Next week I’ll be taking some rest finally… and I’ll be more present here (I hope so…)

I missed you guys and missed blogland and missed writing on this blog…Life can sometimes be like a race against time (google translate thank you :) )


I thought I’ll pop by today just to show you little bits of my creative life… There is so much going on there but so little time for blogging… I finished the cushion you saw above… I sew these hearts by hand and I like how it turned out…


I am still working on these granny squares (that I still don’t know what they’ll become hahahaha )


I am loving this project so much! Oh how I love granny squares :)


It is I think the best thing I love to crochet… granny squares :)


And I love how the colors melt together… A perfect project for quite evenings when the children are in bed FINALLY … It is the best hour… I feel like all the tiredness of the day just goes away when I hold my hook… around 8 o’clock…


and I started something new too… (can’t help myself) (If you follow me on facebook or instagram you already saw this pic below)…

It is a shawl in the most perfect and soft blue color… (This pic does not show the color as it is “live” I’ll try next time to have a more accurate pic ;) )


I asked hubby when showing him this : What are you seeing? He answered: Nothing. :) But I was really happy that when I posted the pic on instagram and facebook you ladies saw hearts like myself…Yes, I saw hearts and fell in love with this…

It is a very old paper (a photocopie in black and white) I found in my mother’s house and I just could not help myself trying out the diagram… and it worked… and I am loving how it is turning out… So, if you’re interested, I’ll try to take a pic of the diagram and post it for you…

That’s all sweet ladies around the globe… It was a pleasure being with you today… I’m sending you all my love and lots of kisses!

Thank you for visiting, for commenting and for asking about the situation in my country… You can never imagine how much I appreciate your kind messages :)

    Hi Angie! Good to ‘see’ you back! I love the cushion and the (definitely) hearts blanket – I would love to see the pattern :) Hope life calms down for you soon! Jillx

  2. Sue says:

    Welcome back. I was a bit worried about the silence and hoped that you were all fit and well.

    I could instantly see the hearts in the shawl :-) I love it too.

    You have stitched the hearts on the cushion very neatly and it looks beautiful.

    Hi there!!
    I love the cushion it’s so lovely. I do love crochet granny squares too, it is something about them so special, how you can play with the colors, the sizes….

    Have a nice day!!

    Lluisa xx

    Am so glad you are okay. Was worried about you and your family. I love granny squares also. Love how you put your colors together.

    Hello! I’m glad to see you are back. We all have times when our schedules prevent us from focusing on the projects we love… I’m sure everyone who reads your blog understands! Your blog is a breath of fresh air. Your choice of colors always make me happy and when I leave your blog it is always with a smile on my face and a continued desire to work on my crocheting. The choice of fabrics for your cushion are beautiful, your hand sewing impeccable. Thank you for sharing your talents. And yes, I noticed the hearts immediately in the shawl you are crocheting.

    j adore le shawl et j’aimerai en faire un
    pourriez vous me donner les explications?
    merci infiniment pour toutes les belles choses que vous faites………..

  7. Rose Pompon says:

    Sans aucun doute, ce sont des cœurs! Et si un diagramme est disponible, j’aimerais beaucoup le crocheter. Merci!

    Et oui, la vie est souvent mouvementée quand on a trois enfants et des parents peut-être âgés à proximité…
    Tes dernières créations sont superbes comme d’habitude ! Ton plaid en granny est magnifique ! Pas grave si tu ne sais pas encore à qui ou à quoi le destiner, un jour tu sauras.

    Je vais peut-être prendre aussi la granny manie : je fais des carrés de 20 x 20 pour des plaids destinés à des malades de la Sclérose En Plaques en résidence de soins spécialisés et très démunis. Mais il faut que je trouve des modèles sans trop gros “trous”.
    Le diagramme de ton chale “coeurs” m’intéresse aussi.
    A bientôt Sucrette !

  11. Louise says:

    Glad you are doing well. Love the pillow and he hearts shawl.

    I would love a copy of the diagram!

  12. Brenda says:

    Yes, yes, yes! Please try to post a pic of the diagram!! I hope to do a shawl real soon and this is perfect!

  13. angie says:

  14. Titi says:

    Bon retour ! J’adore ton nouveau projet, il est hyper romantique.
    J’espère que tu trouveras le temps pour poster le schéma.
    Merci d’avance.

  15. Janine says:

    Hi Angie,

    Your cushion is so nice and colourful but the shawl is a real hit!!! I made one similar many years ago but lost the pattern. Could you share the pattern? Hope you and your family are well.

    Janine ;-)

  16. Angela says:

    Love your pillow cushion and I do see the hearts! I would love to make that shawl! Welcome back! Looking forward to chatting more!

  17. Debbie Rines says:

    Good morning. I saw the hearts instantly so maybe it’s a girl thing.
    I would love to have the pattern. Pillow is so cute.

  18. liz warner says:

    I read your blog regularly and have only commented once. Reading your message today I realize I have been a bit selfish in not replying as I enjoy it so much and get so much from it I should really tell you, so I have. I saw the hearts straight away and would love to see the pattern. Keep stitching, you seem to be getting your confidence back.

  19. Pammy Sue says:

    I saw the hearts immediately even before reading. It’s lovely and I would love to have the graph. A shawl is next on my list of things I want to make, and that is a VERY LONG list! I know you understand that. Sweet Sucrette, you seem like such a loving person and I enjoy reading here. I love seeing your crochet things and get inspiration whenever I come here. I don’t often comment, but I’m here lurking all the time. Prayers for your country.

  20. Anne Marie says:

    It is lovely to see you back and to see your lovely creations. The shawl is lovely.

    I spent a lovely day at Yarndale in the UK. A large building full to the brim of lovely wool and designs. Far too difficult to choose.

    You are a real inspiration of how to keep positive.

  21. Kate says:

    I enjoy your blog very much and visit every day, even when you don’t post! :-) I would very much like a copy of your mother’s shawl pattern. It is lovely and I see hearts very clearly! Thank you!

  22. Flo H says:

    I also missed you, Angie. Am happy you and family are ok. And you seem to be happy now. When my 3 kids were going to school; time was hectic getting them ready for school. My youngest was only a baby when the first 2 were in grade school, just like yours, she came along after 9 whole years, now she is all grown up and a nurse. Time does fly by fast. I love your pillow of hearts and the lovely shawl. BEAUTIFUL work!!! Hugs and Love flowing your way. Flo H. from Pennsylvania.

  23. Darlene Lehman says:

    Glad to hear you are just being busy with life and family! Funny how that happens sometimes, huh? Pretty cushion, lovely grannies, and yes, a very pretty hearts-galore shawl!! I have recently been making up doggie-sweaters for fall craft fair, keeping myself out of trouble with those! Best to you and your family.

  24. domi83 says:

    moi aussi j’adore les grannys !!! et ton plaid est superbe ;-) quant au châle il est ” délicieux ” et je craque pour lui !!! c’est très gentil de proposer le diagramme et je t’en remercie par avance ;-)

  25. Jacekica says:

    I don’t know for others but I am certanly for this diagram if you have will to share it, I love all heart shaped and granny shaped …

  26. modestine says:

    I am very happy to read you again, and you have done so well! your cushion is lovely, your granny squares are beautiful too, and your shawl is going to look splendid! Anne

  27. Lyn Zalk says:

    Angie away from home without my laptop – using an iPad but unable to see clearly the chains or count of the stitches up the sides of your lovely pale blue October shawl…… The inside section of the diagrams is clear… I’m wondering how many chains or stitches are going up each outside edge? Would love to be able to work on this while away on vacation visiting my in laws, thanx for any help you may be able to offer.
    Keeping you and yours and the well being of your war torn little country in my prayers in the hopes it may bring some resolve. Blessings to You in the New Year!
