A new week has begun… a new week with its joys and surprises… its little sad things and its little happy ones :)

1

Crocheting and sharing on IG, facebook and here brings me a lot of peace…

2

It is like opening a window to a lovely place where I can forget the other good and not so good things…

I love to come here, I love to share with like minded people like you :)

4

I love how it relaxes me, how it makes me happy and peaceful and calm…

The crochet mood blanket 2014

By |February 9th, 2015|"done", Crochet mood blanket 2014, Crocheted blankets, patchwork, Patchwork crocheted squares|16 Comments

Yes it is finally done :) in February 2015 :)

1

I started this blanket in January 2014 making one square a day and choosing the color of this square depending on my mood … the good and happy days were bright and happy colors… the bad days: greys and dark colors… the “in love” days : reds and purples… the calm, relaxed and peaceful days: cremes, whites and pastel colors :)

2

Back in early september I stopped it … completely… I was not “in the mood” anymore… and I decided to finally finish it in January 2015… so the last squares were not done  depending on my mood… but I really really love the result… It is amazing to see a whole (not so whole) year in a blanket :)

3

This blanket is made of squares… each one is made of 5 rows of 12 dc… joined as I go with a last round around the square of 1sc 3ch 1sc… and I rotated each square before joining it to the others to have this patchwork effect :) You can find the pattern of this blanket HERE.

4

I used leftovers of my trusted Nako Vizon aran acrylic yarn and a 4.5mm hook…

The final blanket is 270 squares (18 x 15)

5

For the edging I chose to make a very very simple one: 1sc 3ch 1sc all around the blanket like the last joining round of each square. I think that a very simple design blanket like this one must have a very simple edging …

6

And I am really pleased with the edging :)

7

The blanket looks lovely in the sitting room and I think that it will stay forever there keeping us snuggly and cosy during the cold days :)

8

Have to leave you now… the weather is very very bad here today and there is a storm coming our way …

Wishing you a warm and happy week!

A V stitch scarf

By |February 6th, 2015|"done", A month with pics, Baking, scarf, V stitch|13 Comments

Good morning sweet people

January was a very good month…

1

And I feel that the days are running so fast… we are february 6 already :)

2

The second finished project for 2015 is a Vstitch scarf…

3

A very fast crocheted scarf (less than one week and it was done) that I am wearing a lot these days and that I cherish…

4

And a very long scarf too :) (I can turn it twice around my neck)

5

I love the V stitch… a very therapeutic stitch that you can work on while watching TV… And a very fast stitch too… It works fast and is a real pleasure to crochet …

I used the Nako Vizon aran yarn and a 4.5mm hook… I love the colors…

6

and what I loved the most is that I did not have ends to hide… I used the ends to make a fringe :)

7

and I love how it finally turned out :)

*You can have the Vstich chart HERE

8

Will bake a cake today and will enjoy the last day before the weekend :)

Wishing you a lovely Friday!

P.S: I will come back very soon with MY CROCHET MOOD BLANKET 2014 TADAAAAA POST. Because it is finished, it is gorgeous and it really deserves a post of its own ;)

The first completed project for 2015

By |January 30th, 2015|"done", Bedspread, Corners of my home, Crocheted blankets, granny squares|30 Comments

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

7

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

8

Hope you love it as much as I do :)

Wishing you a beautiful weekend!
