Hello there!

This is not a long post just a quick one to say hello how are you? hope everything is good in your part of the world :)

My life is a little bit chaotic these days. It is always like that in November and December. It seems like time is running very fast and sometimes I feel like I wake up on monday morning and close my eyes and it is already friday evening… yes time flies… and I keep reminding myself to slow down… slow down and enjoy the moment… slow down and manage to do some crochet… an hour per day… not more… slow down and breathe :)

1

So I am right now edging my squares with black…

2

It is taking me like forever but I know deep inside that the result will be amazing :)

3

And I am working too on Sarah’s bedspread whenever I can. I’m progressing very slowly on it but ripples are always a joy to work on so I am not in a hurry to finish it… not at all ;)

4

And while I crochet, the girls are now completely addicted to the perler beads (hama beads). They spent most of their free time on these :)

5

Their little colorful creations make me very happy and I am proud of their creativity. The two birds of the first pic and the clown on the second pic are totally created by them and when I asked my 7 years daughter why her clown’s mouth is not centered in his face she replied that he is whistling and that made me laugh :D

Well, my friend, this is all that I have to share with you today!

I am wishing you a lovely weekend with your loved ones!

Stay warm and enjoy the moment :)

The rainbow ripple

Good morning sweet people,

The baby rainbow ripple blanket is done and I can proudly show it to you :)

I’ve had some hard time taking pics of this beauty because the colors are really tricky to show as they are “live” but I did my best and believe me the “real” blanket is much more beautiful than in the pics. It is softer, the colors are melting together in much lovelier way…

Well, As long as you can not see it “live” ;) Here are some pics for you ;)

Voila voilou :) I hope that you liked my rainbow :)

And I hope that it will be cherished by both the mother and the baby boy due in February :)

Sending a rainbow of colors your way. If it is raining, if it is grey, put some colors in your heart and on your hook and the day will be a beautiful one :)

Wishing you a colorful weekend!

Goooooood morning!

Gooooood morning!

How are you today? A small peek into October

october

It was a really good month full of crochet :)

Now that my shawl is done I am now working on 3 different wips. Actually I have 4 wips but one of them is left behind. It is my Crochet Mood Blanket 2014. I am simply not in the mood to work on it. But I know deep inside that I’ll finish it one day…one day…but not now ;)

I love the fact that I am working on 3 different projects at the same time, picking one I feel like crocheting today and picking another different one tomorrow… that “method” suits me a lot and keeps me entusiastic about all my crochet wips :D

No due time, no dead line. Just my hook, my yarn and my mood of the moment to choose a project from 3 ;)

* An hexagon blanket. Crocheting it with the most beautiful and fantastic yarn. The Debbie Bliss Cashmerino aran … so soft and wonderful… I love every stitch :)

And I love how it is turning out :)

* My granny bedspread. Just grannies… I love crocheting granny squares… 3 colorful rounds surrounded with black . I will need more than 270 squares so it is a long project for a double bedspread…

2

A project of patience. A project of LOVE :) Hope to finish it this winter :) Not sure about it…. But NO PRESSURE… Just enjoying the crocheting part :) Enjoying every little square done :)

* And this soothing calming relaxing rainbow baby blanket. I love how it calms me when I pick it :)

I should always have a ripple between my wips :)

And I love how this one is turning out too :)

Well, my friend, these are my 3  projects of the moment. I love sharing them with you. I have today a full day of home duties and I simply hate that. So if you’re crocheting today think about me :)

Sending you all my love through this post

and Wishing you a happy weekend full of crochet ;)

Stay safe
