Edging: Pompoms: Inspired from the lovely blog of Vanessa: HERE
I made the pompoms and just tied them with the last row of my v stitch.
To make the pompoms: I used the Clover Making pompoms. size: small. These are super great and easy. You’ll make a pompom in less than a minute You can buy them online from HERE.
My piece of advice: Must try the Vstitch. It is an easy, relaxing, soothing, beautiful, textured and addictive stitch.
I’ll leave you now with a last pic of me under my blankie before making the edge. It was on Sunday morning. Excuse the sleepy hair and face
Sending you vibes of happiness!

Good morning beautiful people!
I hope that you are ok, happy and healthy wherever you are.
Today’s post is an update of my current crochet wips. What else to share with you my likeminded friends?
Most of the time, specially in the evenings, I crochet so I don’t think much, I crochet so I don’t look at the news, I crochet so I don’t become crazy… That’s why every week I have a lot of crochet to share… It is my medicine, my anti stress, my kind of escape for a better world where everyone live in PEACE with everyone. The world has become an horrible place so much violence, blood and injustice that you have to find your way to not become insane
So, my dear friend, here is what I am up to these days… Working on 3 different wips
* A granny squares bedspread for our bed…just grannies surrounded with black… I am making now the squares will join them later… I am not even half way done but I love doing grannies, they are my favorite that’s why no hurry …I am taking my time enjoying every stitch
* My Crochet Mood Blanket 2014. Up to date Proud of it I love it soooo much I am crocheting one square a day and above in the close up pic you can see the hole month of July
*And finally my latest addiction: The Vstitch blanket if you’re following me on Instagram or Facebook you already know about how much I am addicted to this project You have to try it! It is … well… ADDICTIVE
Well… my sweeties… These were the 3 wips I am working on at the moment. Crochet is my therapy to face this cruel world and the war that is threatening my beautiful country… I need your prayers my friends… I don’t know if I’ll have internet or no in the coming days due to the situation here It is really awful Please pray for my country and for its army… Pray for the innocent people… Pray for a better tomorrow…
Thank you so much dear readers… It really means a lot having you here
Peace and Love

We’ve had a wonderfully sunshiny beautiful week in Turkey (Letoonia club – Fethiyeh). Enjoying the sun, the beach, the sand in our toes
We’ve really needed this one week vacation away from everything to recharge our batteries (mine was really really empty )
* I couldn’t resist going to Turkey and not bying some wonderful yarn: chunky yarn in beautiful colors: Alize: This is the first time I’m trying this brand…will tell you more about it once I begin using it (1st pic) and some of the Nako yarn that were missing from my stash
Now I am back home, happy, calm, batteries fully charged I love my home and I love going back to my crochet wips too. One week without holding a hook that was veryyyyyy long
Sending you sunshine, colors, and lots of kisses!

Good morning beautiful people!
Hope you’re well, happy and healthy
Me… Well… I am totally in loVVVVe with my Vstitch blanket…If you’re following me on instagram or facebook you’ll already know that
This post is about it mostly…my progress on my VintageV blanket so far
There is something about this stitch you can not resist…
It is addictive, soothing, calming, beautiful, fast and easy…
It grows very fast…
and is perfect for crocheting while doing something else… like watching TV or dreaming
You can try it yourself … there is plenty of written patterns, charts, videos online… or you can try it my way (less holes) HERE
Give it a go… you won’t regret it
I’ll be away next week for a small vacation in Turkey… Beach, sand, sun and no stress are waiting for me
I’ll be back very soon
Have a great time!

How are you? Woooow we are July1 already…time flies… 2014 is half gone and I am half done with my Crochet Mood Blanket 2014.
Here it is from January1 (up-left light purple) till June30 (down-right blue turquoise) :D Wooow! I am really happy to be up to date with it It makes me proud, happy and makes my heart sing with joy.
See? Not so many dark and grey days! Hope that the second half will be as happy as this first
I am pleased with it even though it will be BIG very BIG . The first half is 120 x 145 cm. So the final blanket will be 145 x 240 cm
And I started also something new…
Well, I am unravelling an wip and crocheting a new one… Remember my Vintage Stripy Blanket? Well, I decided to unravel it because I was not pleased with its sides …they were not straight and it was bothering me … A LOT… So, I decided to unravel it and with every row unravelled crochet a row in a new Vintage-V-blanket
I love the colors. That’s why I am keeping them as they are…unravelling from here…crocheting there
And I am falling madly deeply in love with this V-stitch blanket It is addictive…and once you start you can not leave your hook anymore
I drew a small chart to show you how I am working on it. You can find online if you google: Crochet V stitch many patterns, charts and videos too…but here is my own “version” with less “holes” and I am really pleased with it.
I am working this blanket with a 4.5mm hook and a yarn similar to the Stylecraft special DK but a little thicker. It is called Nako Vizon. A 100% acrylic yarn
If you have time and are wondering what to crochet, I really advise you to try the V-stitch. It is totally addictive easy and fast to crochet You’ll be totally hooked
Have a super day!
