Turkey 2014

We’ve had a wonderfully sunshiny beautiful week in Turkey (Letoonia club – Fethiyeh). Enjoying the sun, the beach, the sand in our toes ๐Ÿ™‚

We’ve really needed this one week vacation away from everything to recharge our batteries (mine was really really empty ๐Ÿ™‚ )

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

This post is about it mostly…my progress on my VintageV blanket so far ๐Ÿ˜‰

There is something about this stitch you can not resist…

It is addictive, soothing, calming, beautiful, fast and easy…

3

It grows very fast…

and is perfect for crocheting while doing something else… like watching TV or dreaming ๐Ÿ™‚

You can try it yourself … there is plenty of written patterns, charts, videos online… or you can try it my way (less holes) HERE ๐Ÿ™‚

Give it a go… you won’t regret it ๐Ÿ˜‰

WIDN

Good morning ๐Ÿ™‚

I am often tagged on Instagram to show What I’m Doing Now (widn) and this always makes me happy ๐Ÿ™‚ I love to see what others are making now and showing what I’m doing too…

I love Instagram… It is my favorite social media… I am a pictures lover… When I was young I remember reading only the books with pictures inside… I love to see… see glimpses of other people’s life, home, wips etc…this makes me extremely happy ๐Ÿ™‚

These days I am back to my granny white…

Remember it?ย I started it with a huge need to crochet granny squares… I still don’t know what will it becomes… But working on it makes me happy…extremely ๐Ÿ˜‰

2

I’ve made 3 first rounds of each color in my stash… I crochet in series like a machine… a machine that enjoys what she’s doing ๐Ÿ™‚ hahaha

Did you spot something attached to my hook in the above pic?

3

Well it is a crochet necklace a gift from a very sweet friend Susan… You wear this cute necklace while crocheting and you will never ever loose your hook… or your scissor too (It holds both)

A wonderful and clever idea eh?

Susan have an etsy shop where she sells these wonderful crochet necklaces and other cute crocheted items too… You can visit it right here ๐Ÿ™‚ and you’ll love it ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you so much Susan for these two necklaces… I’m wearing one of them right now ๐Ÿ™‚

And WIDN? Well crocheting, crocheting, crocheting…

I breathe crochet :)

Hello there!

How’s everything?

This post is again about my hooky update ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sometimes I feel like I breathe crochet ๐Ÿ™‚

1-yarn-for-the-girls-ponchos

I choose some yarn… bright and beautiful colorful yarn to start the girls ponchos… I love when children wear colorful clothes…ย Don’t you agree?

And I started the two ponchos together…

2-christina's

Christina, my oldest girl (8years) chose the yellow to begin with… Here is her poncho so far…

3-sarah's

And Sarah (6years old) chose the fushia to start with ๐Ÿ™‚

4

The yarn I am using is called Nako Lux Ninnos a very soft yarn with bright and lovely colors… It is worked with a 3.5mm hook…

I chose for the girls to make this granny poncho… It is very soothing and relaxing to work on… very simple pattern to follow once you make your first two rounds… I just love thisย design ๐Ÿ™‚

You can find the pattern right here ๐Ÿ˜‰

6-vintage-stripy-wip

I’ve added also more stripes to my vintage stripy blanket…

7-vintage-stripy-wip

I love the colors melting on this project… and I love to pick it on the evenings while watching TV with hubby ๐Ÿ˜‰

8-cmb-feb-so-far

And my crochet mood blanket is slowly growing. In the pic above you can see the first 20 days of February…

9-cmb-january-and-feb-so-far

and on this one you can see it all (January + 20 days of February) …

What do you think?ย  Are you in love like myself? ๐Ÿ˜€

You can find here the chart of the squares and how I am joining them together as I go with the last round ๐Ÿ˜‰

10-yellow-filofax-love

I am back to my yellow filofax and using it every night to plan the next day is always a pleasure for me… I love when everything is clearly written on a paper… I am “old-fashion” I know ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have to go now…

I’m wishing you a beautiful day!
