Patchwork crocheted squares

Something new on my hook ;)

Hello lovelies,

How are you? Woooow we are July1 already…time flies… 2014 is half gone and I am half done with my Crochet Mood Blanket 2014.


Here it is from January1 (up-left light purple) till June30 (down-right blue turquoise) 😀 Wooow! I am really happy to be up to date with it 🙂 It makes me proud, happy and makes my heart sing with joy.


See? Not so many dark and grey days! Hope that the second half will be as happy as this first 🙂


I am pleased with it even though it will be BIG very BIG . The first half is 120 x 145 cm. So the final blanket will be 145 x 240 cm 😀

And I started also something new…


 Well, I am unravelling an wip and crocheting a new one… Remember my Vintage Stripy Blanket? Well, I decided to unravel it because I was not pleased with its sides …they were not straight and it was bothering me … A LOT… So, I decided to unravel it and with every row unravelled crochet a row in a new Vintage-V-blanket 🙂


I love the colors. That’s why I am keeping them as they are…unravelling from here…crocheting there 🙂


And I am falling madly deeply in love with this V-stitch blanket 🙂 It is addictive…and once you start you can not leave your hook anymore 😉


I drew a small chart to show you how I am working on it. You can find online if you google: Crochet V stitch many patterns, charts and videos too…but here is my own “version” with less “holes” 🙂 and I am really pleased with it.


I am working this blanket with a 4.5mm hook and a yarn similar to the Stylecraft special DK but a little thicker. It is called Nako Vizon. A 100% acrylic yarn 🙂

If you have time and are wondering what to crochet, I really advise you to try the V-stitch. It is totally addictive easy and fast to crochet 🙂 You’ll be totally hooked 🙂

Have a super day!


It’s all about crochet…

When people ask me what do I do in my spare time and I answer crochet… they look at me in a strange way… Here in my country crochet is something “old fashioned”…

Well if crochet is an old fashion activity then I am “old fashioned” and proud to be 😀

Good morning lovely people around the globe… I am very happy to be with you today and to share my latest wips 😉 You are the only one to understand me and my crazy addiction 🙂


I am back to my Crochet Mood Blanket 2014 and I was so behind with my squares but today I crocheted June11’s square and that made me very happy 😀


This blanket is very special and I love it… Looking at it brings back memories and I really put my heart into crocheting each square of it 🙂


I felt in love with this idea to make each day of 2014 a square depending on your mood and even though I did not 100% stick to it I still choose the color of my square depending on how I feel 🙂


I am back also to my Vintage Stripy Blanket. Crocheting these colorful stripes calm me in the evening after a rough day… they take my stress away and I love adding one row each evening to this beauty 🙂


Call me crazy but I started also another granny square bedspread for our room 🙂 Yes I am crazy but granny squares with a black border was on my to-do list from long ago and I simply love them. They have a vintage sweet look that I adore 🙂 I am crocheting this new blanket with a thicker yarn (100% acrylic Nako Vizon yarn) than my granny with white bedspread…so a 4 rounds -square is big as a 6 rounds-square on the white one… This new bedspread will be for winter 😉


I’ll crochet it with these 35 colors and the black for the last round 🙂

Thank you dear friend for visiting today,

it is always a pleasure having you here!

Kisses and love


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 🙂


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 😉 ?

Sending you my love through this post…

See you soon,











The days are passing by so quickly…

The children are growing so fast…I still remember when they were newborns and it feels like yesterday…

I feel a little nostalgic today…

Crocheting makes me think about my life in general and I am thankful for my little family…

While I crochet I always have thoughts…sometimes it is bad and negative thoughts sometimes not… I try always to see the “positive” in everything and not think about dark days 🙂

A cup of coffee and some stitches make me feel better … always…

Life is good and there is always a rainbow after the rain…

Have a colorful end of week and a bright and beautiful Easter!



P.S: The blankets you see in the pics above are my 3 wips of the moment. I love them all 🙂


Good morning!

I am very happy today because I am up to date with my Crochet Mood blanket 2014. I was a little behind with March’s squares but I finally catch up and joined them yesterday eve 🙂

Here it is so far: January, February and March 2014 in all their glory 🙂


 I left this project a little behind to concentrate on the girls ponchos and now that I am back to it , I’m falling all over in love with it again 🙂




And it is gonna be HUUUUGE: Imagine this big rectangle x 4 😀 Maybe a bedspread 😉


And I’m working on the Vintage stripy blanket too and enjoying it 🙂


My life without crochet would be very boring…

I’m wishing you a very happy day 🙂

Sending you a basket full of love and kisses
