July is gone…

It was a lovely month full of colors and joys…
And now that my v stitch baby blanket is done too (will show it to you next time) and I am really pleased with how it turned out, I have an urge need to crochet grannies :-)

I have some leftover grannies in DK yarn from previous projects, I decided to add some rows to them and make some more …

My stash of colors in DK yarn is big (mostly Stylecraft special DK) and I looooove the colors.

I am mixing some Stylecraft Alpaca tweed to the special ones and I looooove the effect too :-)

New beginnings

Hello lovelies,

I feel like summer has begun and with it a lot of fun times ahead :) I love Summer. I love when there is no school. I love when there is no morning runs and afternoon homeworks. I love when the weather is beautiful and the sun is shining :) And the time is flying gently :)

1

This week I started a new project with the beautiful yarn the kind and generous people from Stylecraft sent me.

2

A ripple blanket made from this pattern. I love this ripple. It is lighter than the original one. I love its simple stitches and the lovely result they give.

3

I love how it soothes me and calms me and how I can crochet it in front of the T.V.

4

I am loving the colors too much too :) Aren’t they gorgeous?

The yarn is Stylecraft Life DK.

5

Well, now I have these four crochet projects I am working on. The 4 of them are blankets. We can never have too many wips, no?

This week also I discovered a new addictive activity and treated myself with a gorgeous book.

6

A coloring book for adults. I loved this one in particular because I love Folk art. I love their simple naive designs associated with beautiful bold colors. I can’t tell you how much I am hooked. Now you can find me coloring instead of crocheting and that is a shame :)

Let me show you some of the gorgeous pages to color…

8

Aren’t they lovely?

9

Can’t wait to color them all.

10

It is completely addictive and I even bought a box of 45 coloring pencils :)

11

I really recommend this book if you love folk art. There are a lot of lovely other themed coloring books you can order from amazon. Just search for ” coloring books for adults ” or ” just add colors ” and you’ll discover a wonderful choice :)

12

I am spending long hours of coloring with my girls (Joe is still too young) and we are all enjoying this new addiction :)

Wishing you a colorful day!

Busy crocheting days

By |June 19th, 2015|Bedspread, colors and yarns, Corners of my home, Crocheted blankets, etsy shop, for babies, granny squares, Hexagons, new projects, wips|10 Comments

Hello sweet friend!

1

I’ve been busy, busy crocheting with tons of ideas in my head. I want to crochet crochet crochet. I want to crochet baby blankets, lots of them, different kinds, a lot of colors, bright, happy colors. I don’t know what is happening with me…

10

My hook is burning and I decided to reopen my etsy shop and try to sell baby blankets. Wooohooo I am very very excited about this idea. And I don’t care if it will work or no… I want to try… just crochet and try… will see what will it leads me to… maybe I will close again my shop… maybe not…

3

I wanted first to finish my actual wips. This hexagons blanket. And the granny bedspread of my daughter Sarah. But I COULDN’T. The hexagons is mostly done…

4

still have some to join… and it needs an edging of course…

2

And for the bedspread…

7

I will leave it for the autumn… Now I have to make baby blankets…

5

So I started two… one with a cream edge…

6

and the second a big colorful granny…

8

9

and a third, and a fourth, and a fifth (I will not tell about all the crazy ideas in my crazy head) I have to finish the first two, post them in Etsy and then begin the others :)

7

My Etsy shop is still mostly empty (I posted some of my patterns for sale there). I will tell you when the baby blankets will be there too :)

I am crossing my fingers now and saying a small prayer :)

Will keep you updated my friend!

Love ♥

Crochet

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

5

Thank you for being here my friend,

Thank you for taking time to read,

Sending you all my love,
