Hello!

August went really really fast this year and I still can not believe that we are already in September…

1

August was great. We went for a one week vacation to Club Med Palmiye Turkey and it was wonderful…

2

We spent a whole week with the children and I fully recharged my batteries 😉

3

I crocheted a lot in August… Finished my hexagons blanket (see previous post) and I started two bedspreads for the girls :)

5

I always wanted to make grannies bedspreads for my children. They have something I can’t explain. They remind me of my grandmother, the sweetness of my childhood and I really really love to crochet them…

4

They have a vintage touch I just adore :) I am mixing different kinds of Stylecraft yarn. Mostly Stylecraft special DK, some Stylecraft alpaca tweed and some colors of the Stylecraft life range :)

I love the look of a granny square with mixed kinds of yarn ♥

For Christina my eldest daughter I’ll be joining the squares with parchment … and for Sarah, the joining color will be the dark grey (graphite) :) My girls have very different characters and one is dark hair dark skin (Christina) the other is very blond (Sarah)

So contrasting grannies bedspreads they will have in their room :) Can’t wait to finish them both :)

and  I am also still crocheting my ripple with the Stylecraft life Dk and loving it more and more ♥

August has brought some changes in my home too. We painted our walls and I chose the yellow mustard (my favorite color of the moment) to paint the wall behind our bed ♥

and a wall in our sitting room ♥

I just looooove LOVE LOVE this color. So bright, so fresh and sooo warm ♥

(The painting color’s name is honey mustard from DULUX)

That is all for today my dearest friends!

Have to go now…

Sending you hugs and kisses through this post ♥
