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,

6

Thank you for taking time to read,

Sending you all my love,

Sucrette

A baby girl blanket

By |March 3rd, 2015|"done", A month with pics, another V stitch version, Classic square, Crocheted blankets, Crocheted doily, edging, flowers, for babies, wips|14 Comments

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!
