Crochet

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!

A baby boy blanket and a new blog’s layout

By |March 18th, 2015|"done", Classic square, Crocheted blankets, edging, for babies, Patchwork crocheted squares|24 Comments

Good morning sweeties,

The baby boy blanket is done and this was my fastest project ever … two weeks :) yaaaayyy

1

I am very happy with the result…

2

Simple, classic squares surrounded by a round of granny grey … very simple but I love it :)

3

For the edging I chose to make a simple one too … one round of turquoise followed by one round of grey with picots :)

4

The yarn is a 100% acrylic DK one called Mirage and the hook a 3.5mm one.

Do you like it?

5

And did you noticed the new layout of Le monde de Sucrette? I hope you like it too. I’ve been working really hard on this one . Oh how I hate technology … luckily for me my man is a pro in computers stuff 😀 phewwww

A baby girl blanket

Good morning sweeties,

February was a very good productive month for me. I’ve finished two of my wips blankets. My crochet mood blanket (the centered pic in the pic above) and the baby girl V stitch blanket :)

2

Today’s post is all about this last one :) A simple stripy V stitch blanket that turned out very pretty :)

3

I loved working on it. The happy colors made my heart sings with joy and I loved the soothing calming music of the pattern :)

You can find the chart of this stitch right here :)

4

I used Nako baby yarn which is a mixture of polyamid and acrylic and it is a very very soft and a pure pleasure yarn to work with. I crocheted it with a 3.5mm hook.

1

For the edging I’ve used the same Vstitch all around the blanket but I’ve made picots instead of the 2ch … (for the picot: I crochet 4chain and 1sc in the firt chain) I love picots… they really make the sweetest edgings :) This blanket will be for the sweet princess due in April…

6

And now I started another Baby blanket for a sweet boy due in March… Yes I am late, I know, but I will do it :)

7

Have to leave you now my friend! Wishing you a lovely week :)

Love to all!
