Last week…

I feel like I’m neglecting a little bit this blog of mine and I apologize for that….

I feel like I’m running out of time and with the children at home for their summer holidaysย it is quite impossible to concentrate on something for more than 5 minutes ๐Ÿ™‚ I think you understand what I’m talking about ๐Ÿ˜‰

And there is INSTAGRAM. It is so easy and so quick to post a picture with a few words and share it that …well… you end up neglecting your blog and your posts… and it is annoying me I must confess… I love this little blog of mine…I feel like it is my own home, my secret place where I can hide from all the daily “routine” stuff… A kind ofย escape ๐Ÿ™‚

Well… I know I talk too much ๐Ÿ˜€ I want to show you today some pics of my past week and my actual wips … Most of these pics I’ve posted them already on Instagram (Sorry my IG friends ๐Ÿ˜‰ )


* My Vintage stripy blanket: This blanket is my stress-away wip. It is very soothing to work on and I am in love with how the colors melt together…


* That’s why I’m sharing here its chart. Many of you asked me about this pattern. It is a little bit tricky to begin and end each row…so before beginning your blanket try the pattern on a small scale to make sure it works with you ๐Ÿ˜‰ Very easy once you’ve made your first rows…


I started it with 150ch. Working it with a 4.5mm hook. I think the more chunky the yarn is the more beautiful is the effect ๐Ÿ˜‰ That’s my opinion ๐Ÿ˜‰


* This is the second wip I’m working on. A winter bedspread for our room. I’ve already made some squares and I love how they’re looking ๐Ÿ™‚


Traditional granny squares are my favorite. You know that eh? and the more I crochet them the more I have projects in my head with them… I think that my brain is full of granny squares ideas… they are everywhere in my home and I just can’t have enough of them…


They are beautiful…don’t you think? Little sweets for the soul ๐Ÿ™‚



*Some pics of my planner. I am in love with this little filofax of mine. Its color, its shape, everything inside it makes my heart sing with joy… And I feel that I am more organised now that I am using it. Everythink is planned, my week is decorated and I feel calm just looking at it ๐Ÿ™‚ Nurdy lady ๐Ÿ˜‰



*and this last wip of mine. My crochet mood blanket 2014. I am up to date with it and find again a lot of joy crocheting each morning a square depending on my mood of the moment ๐Ÿ™‚ There is not a lot of grey and dark colors… don’t you think? ๐Ÿ˜‰


* My new comfy birkenstock. I love their color and painted my nails to match them ๐Ÿ™‚

* And finally: My reason to live…My love… My life… My time consumers… My sun… My rainbow… My everything… My children…


I’ll leave you today with their picture. I just LOVE them so much and I am thankful every day and blessed for having them in my life…

Have a wonderful day my friends!




Colors make me happy

Good morning dear friends,

How are you? Hope that everything is OK and that you are surrounded by rainbows and colors everyday ๐Ÿ™‚

Lat week was a colorful one in my small part of the world…


I’ve added more colorful washi tape and my collection is slowly growing ๐Ÿ˜‰


I’ve played with my clover pompom making and enjoyed a lot these little colorful balls of yarn. Let me tell you something this clover thingy is totally addictive… so easy to make pompom that you feel like you want to add pompom everywhere around your house ๐Ÿ™‚


I’ve made a garland to hide a little bit my hubby’s stereo (which I don’t like but he does ๐Ÿ˜‰ )…


In this pic you can see it more clearly ๐Ÿ™‚ Now, with the pompoms I don’t have a problem looking at it anymore ๐Ÿ˜€ hahaha…Crossing my fingers that hubby doesn’t read my posts ๐Ÿ˜€


Some new colorful flowers bought from the local market made me very happy too ๐Ÿ™‚ I love fresh flowers…


I’m still not done with my granny blanket… joiningย a square every time I have a spare moment…


Still have 7 squares to add and then the edging…


Talking about edgings this book is great… I’m trying someย of its bordersย but I have a feeling, a deep inside feeling,ย that finally I will make a very simple one … We’ll see ๐Ÿ™‚

Have to go now my friend,

Some homely chores are waiting for me …

Wishing you love, sunshine and colors ๐Ÿ™‚



Living slowlier…

Hello dear friend,

I feel everytime I write a new post that I repeat myself, talk about the same things, but that is what my life is all about…


I love it… I love having habits… I love waking up each morning and do again and again the same things ๐Ÿ™‚


I love repeating the same chores…


Home time (mostly spent picking up things from the floor), cooking time, crochet and coffee time, children time, family time, Hubby time…


Each part of my day brings me joy..


Finding pleasures in the little things that is what life is all about…


The more I grow older, the more I appreciate the little things, the more I enjoy moments of happinesss…


I am living slowlier now … taking the time to look at the blue sky and smell a flower…


Taking the time to add one square … just one square a day to my Crochet Mood blanket 2014…

(Above you can see the first 4 months of 2014)

Try to live slowlier my friend, don’t be always in a hurry, take time to enjoy the moment, life is too short…

I’m gonna make a coffe right now… do you want a cup ๐Ÿ˜‰ ?

Sending you my love through this post…

See you soon,


Crazy week…

Hello there!

It’s been a crazy chaotic kind of week… very fast… running days… and I’ve had barely time to hold my hook…

I sometimes sit… and take long breathes and remember to enjoy the moment…sit…breathe…and enjoy…

sit for some minutes… a little bit… do something I love…like crochet… just for a few minutes and then run again… Life is sometimes crazy…but it is beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚








This post today is a quick one with few pics just to say hello… I’m still here… will try to be back very soon… still working on my wips and… thinking of you in your corner of the world… enjoy your day and your weekend too ๐Ÿ™‚



Good morning sweeties,

Saturday morning, a cup of hot coffee and you, just youย behind your screen, ย keeping me company in the very first hours of this glorious morning…


An update for you of my current crochet wips… what else to share? and little things of my everyday too ๐Ÿ˜‰


My Vintage stripy blanket… slowly growing… I’m really enjoying each and every stitch of this eclectic piece of crochet ๐Ÿ™‚


My beloved filofaxes…ย  I am now completly addicted to them ๐Ÿ™‚


My new owl, added to my collection… It is big but very cute…and I loved it the second I spotted it on a local shop…


My Crochet Mood blanket, slowly growing too…


I love it too much…It is one of my favorites ๐Ÿ˜‰


The ponchos of my girls… almost done… yes… almost… Hope to finish them before spring ๐Ÿ˜‰


Did you spot my kickers in the pic above… I am in love with my old comfy shoes…they remind me my childhood… and I always have a pair to wear when I’m feeling a little blue ๐Ÿ™‚ They cheer me up ๐Ÿ˜‰


Back to my coffee, before the children wake up and the weekend starts ๐Ÿ™‚

Weekends are always exciting but I feel like I am dead on Sunday nights ๐Ÿ™‚ Do you feel the same?

Have a super one my friend!
