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…

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

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,

Sucrette

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!

Whishing you a lovely day whatever you’ll be doing :)

I won’t be long… I promise 😉

♥ Sending you all my love ♥
