Crochet

By |May 17th, 2015|colors and yarns, Crocheted blankets, granny squares, wips|13 Comments

 

Hello!

I am enjoying these days this granny squares project a lot. This will become a bedspread for my daughter Sarah and it will be followed by another one for Christina my oldest too. I’ve been wanting to make for them grannies winter bedpreads for ages :)

8

I am enjoying each stitch, each square, choosing the colors and taking my time because no dead line here and not so many other wips going on too (just the hexies blanket with the debbie bliss yarn but that is another story I’ll keep for another post :) )

6

While I crochet, I often can’t do the “mindfullness” crochet as it is supposed to be. Ok I enjoy crocheting, it calms me, soothes me but my mind is always thinking, calculating, planning, dreaming of other things and I can never shut it down completely :)

2

I was thinking yesterday about the art of crochet. It is an art, isn’t it? and how people pass it from one to another and that it will be great if I can teach somebody this passion of mine before I leave this planet. It will be really good to know that I somehow made someone else happy by teaching him (her) this wonderful craft that can calms you, soothes you, distract you and gives you time to think, plan and fix ideas in your head while your hands are busy creating.

3

I never taught anybody to crochet and I really would love to do it. In my country crochet is an old fashioned craft and it makes me sad to see how people make fun jokes about it… but I will not loose hope :)

4

Here I am again, sharing my thoughts with you and that makes me very very happy.

Thank you for being here my friend,

Thank you for taking time to read,

Sending you all my love,

Good morning lovelies,

April is gone, and May is here. I love May. It is my birthday month (tomorrow May 7 I’ll be 37) but I love it for other reasons. It is for me the month of hope, the month of sun, good weather, birds, flowers :) It is my favorite month. You can not be too sad in May :)

5

I feel always that I am neglecting this blog of mine. I go for long periods of time and I miss blogging… but life is really really busy … and the days are passing too quickly…

1

I’ve been having some technical issues with my blog lately and I know that many of you dears friends who are subscribed in the email notifications are not receiving any :( and I am sooo sorry about that… Hope that you’ll receive this post today :)

2

I’ve been crocheting a lot, using a lot of colors (that is what I love to do), mixing colors, relaxing with my hook and yarn, enjoying Instagram and Facebook (I am an Instagram addict 😉 ),

4

baking, cooking and discovering the joy of staying in my kitchen :) I am discovering a new passion and really enjoying cooking and baking books and trying new recipes and soooooo loooooooving it :)

I am like a baby discovering the world around him for the first time. Where was I during all these years? Why did I use to hate everything kitchen related? WOOOW I am constantly saying WOOOOW and my family is really happy with that new passion of mine :)

3

Now that is Spring is here the whole house has been dressed with a spring touch :)

Fresh colors everywhere and it feels really good :) How I love Spring!

Hello hello hello

How are you doing sweet friends? I’ve been having some technical issues with my blog lately and I know that my posts are not reaching the emails subscribers and I am very sorry about that. I hope that it is fixed now and that you’ll be receiving all the new posts from Le monde de Sucrette :)

7

Thank you so much for the lovely response to my latest pattern. Knowing that you liked it and that you are already crocheting it makes me very very happy ♥

2

For the ones that did not receive my latest posts and wish to purchase this fresh and springy hexagon flower, you can find it HERE :)

1

Today, the girls  are back to school and Joe back to daycare. The house is silent and calm and I already missed them :(

2

I’ve been working lately on this very old wip of mine : the granny stripes. Together with the old ripple they will be on the girls beds for spring time. I’m thinking about doing them half blankets… for the bottom part of the bed …( can’t find the name of that not very big blanket that you lay just on the bottom of the bed)  like many lovely pics I saw on Pinterest :)

5

So, I’m nearly done with them both… Still have 10 rows for the ripple (will show it to you next time) and 20 rows on this granny stripes :)

9

I am really pleased with how they are turning out. Fresh and colorful 😀

6

And I’ve been spending a lot of time in my kitchen lately and enjoying it :)

7

Who would have guessed 10 years ago that I’ll enjoy cooking and baking one day :) Not me :) I am discovering a new “me” and I love that new “me”

4

I’ve been baking a lot of cakes and home made bread in the new “pangourmet” oven a gift from my adorable man 😉 and enjoying it… the smell is wonderful and the taste delicious :)

8

Have to leave you now and make some boring chores around the place 😉

I’ll be back very soon,

Sending you kisses!

Sucrette’s hexagon flower

By |April 3rd, 2015|"done", hexagon flower, Hexagons, patterns for sale, table runner|13 Comments

Hello!

I’ve had so much fun designing this lacy springy and delicate hexagon flower last week :)

1

Choosing the colors, working on the pattern, trying and trying different looks this is something I really really love to do :) I feel like I am on another planet, on a kind of fluffy cloud away from everything, like a dreamy place I am escaping to :)

2

I’ve designed this hexagon with spring, birds singing, tulips, roses and blooming colorful flowers in my head… and just looking at it makes me very very happy :) I loooove spring :) Who doesn’t?

3

I’ve made a table runner for my room with joining the hexagons as I go and I love how it turned out :)

4

5

And look at this simple design surrounded by cream… definitively a summer blanket or a shawl…. mmmmh a shawl with a vintage look….Oh my…. the ideas are blooming in my head :) I just can’t stop…

8

I love the look of the hexagons with cream edging … it shows the flower better :)

7

And with just one color… I tried it with my favorite yellow… it is looking good too :)

d

Well my friend I’ve drawn for you a chart of this delicate hexagon flower and step by step pictures too… all that in a PDF file that you can download for a small symbolic amount of 3.5 USD

The pattern is made of a clear chart of the hexagon+ a clear chart of the joining hexagons together+ easy to follow step by step pictures of crocheting an hexagon and joining it to 2 others. No written pattern (I just don’t know how to do it sorry…)

If you wish to purchase the pattern just click here:

and you’ll receive the PDF file within 24 hours. Please allow me 24 hours to send you the pattern I am a busy mom and sometimes I don’t have time to check frequently my emails. :)

And if you do not receive your pattern within 24 hours please check your spam folder (it is sometimes hidden there by mistake :) ) If it is not there please contact me ( sucrette@lemondedesucrette ) and I’ll send it to you again asap .

Hope you’ll love this new hexagon flower as much as I do ♥

Sending you love and wishing you a happy blessed Easter time ♥

Hello

I’ve been working on a new design and I am in love :) and super hyper excited too :) Yahooooooo

1

It is an hexagon flower that I’ll use to make a table runner… Can’t wait to show you more…

2

This new hexagon can be used to make beautiful shawls, coasters, potholders, cushions, table runners and lovely blankets too… Oh! a blanket with that hexagon will be gorgeous :) I can imagine it full of colors… woooowww

So, my friend, I’ll be releasing the pattern very very soon… I’ll try to work on it this weekend :)

Wishing you a lovely end of week!
