colors and yarns

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™‚ )










* 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ (1st pic) and some of the Nako yarn that were missing from my stash ๐Ÿ™‚


Now I am back home, happy, calm, batteries fully charged ๐Ÿ™‚ I love my home and I love going back to my crochet wips too. One week without holding a hook that was veryyyyyy long ๐Ÿ™‚

Sending you sunshine, colors, and lots of kisses!

Good morning beautiful people!

Hope you’re well, happy and healthy 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…


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˜‰

I’ll be away next week for a small vacation in Turkey… Beach, sand, sun and no stress are waiting for me ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll be back very soon ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a great time!

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˜‰


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?


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…



… adding more squares to this beauty

…. and in a while I’ll be baking some delicious cookies ๐Ÿ˜‰ Mmmmmh

Have a sweet day ๐Ÿ™‚

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™‚


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…


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


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


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˜‰


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


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


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


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˜‰


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!
