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 :)

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 ♥

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 :)

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 :D

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 :)

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

I’ll be back very soon,

Sending you kisses!

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?

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!

The crochet mood blanket 2014

By |February 9th, 2015|"done", Crochet mood blanket 2014, Crocheted blankets, patchwork, Patchwork crocheted squares|16 Comments

Yes it is finally done :) in February 2015 :)

1

I started this blanket in January 2014 making one square a day and choosing the color of this square depending on my mood … the good and happy days were bright and happy colors… the bad days: greys and dark colors… the “in love” days : reds and purples… the calm, relaxed and peaceful days: cremes, whites and pastel colors :)

2

Back in early september I stopped it … completely… I was not “in the mood” anymore… and I decided to finally finish it in January 2015… so the last squares were not done  depending on my mood… but I really really love the result… It is amazing to see a whole (not so whole) year in a blanket :)

3

This blanket is made of squares… each one is made of 5 rows of 12 dc… joined as I go with a last round around the square of 1sc 3ch 1sc… and I rotated each square before joining it to the others to have this patchwork effect :) You can find the pattern of this blanket HERE.

4

I used leftovers of my trusted Nako Vizon aran acrylic yarn and a 4.5mm hook…

The final blanket is 270 squares (18 x 15)

5

For the edging I chose to make a very very simple one: 1sc 3ch 1sc all around the blanket like the last joining round of each square. I think that a very simple design blanket like this one must have a very simple edging …

6

And I am really pleased with the edging :)

7

The blanket looks lovely in the sitting room and I think that it will stay forever there keeping us snuggly and cosy during the cold days :)

8

Have to leave you now… the weather is very very bad here today and there is a storm coming our way …

Wishing you a warm and happy week!

The first completed project for 2015

By |January 30th, 2015|"done", Bedspread, Corners of my home, Crocheted blankets, granny squares|30 Comments

Good morning lovelies

I am sure you already guessed. The bedspread is done! Houraaayyyy! Tadaaaaa :)

1

I am dancing with joy around it :) feeling proud :)

2

My labor of love is finally done and I looooooove it from the bottom of my heart :)

3

324 (18 x 18) granny squares crocheted with love… 3 colorful rounds and a black fourth round each :) Joined with rows of sc in black :)

4

This bedspread was crocheted with Nako Vizon a 100% acrylic aran yarn and a 4.5mm hook. I used 12 x 100g of the black yarn and leftovers colored yarn (I really don’t know how many balls)

5

I used a granny simple edging of 3 colored rounds (green, purple and dark orange) followed by a round in black with picots ( 1picot = 4ch and 1sc in the first chain ). A very simple edging but I loooove it.

6

You can find the pattern of each square HERE

Hope you love it as much as I do :)
