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 :)

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 :) )

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 :)

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!

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

I won’t be long… I promise 😉

The first completed project for 2015

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

Sorry for all the pics :) but I am sooo happy I have to share with you :)

Hope you love it as much as I do :)

Wishing you a beautiful weekend!
