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 🙂

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

1

I’ve added more colorful washi tape and my collection is slowly growing 😉

2

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 🙂

3

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

4

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

5

Some new colorful flowers bought from the local market made me very happy too 🙂 I love fresh flowers…

6

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

7

Still have 7 squares to add and then the edging…

8

Talking about edgings this book is great… I’m trying some of its borders but I have a feeling, a deep inside feeling, that finally I will make a very simple one … We’ll see 🙂

Have to go now my friend,

Some homely chores are waiting for me …

Wishing you love, sunshine and colors 🙂

A double tadaaaa

Hello hello hello!

What shall I show you first today? This post is special as I have to show you two finished projects and they are both lovely 🙂

Ok. First.The pink stool.

I’ve had this wood stool from ages ago but it was in an ugly brown…I painted it pink and decided to make for it a nice crocheted cover…that was in may 2012 if my memory is good … I started it with the Ricco creative cotton… and never blogged about it…

Last week I decided to finish it 😉

Because I was into “stools” and was making the red one for a special order, the pink one had to be done too…

So, here it is: Enjoyyyyyyyyy………………….

Yarn: Rico creative cotton

Hook: 4mm

For the edging I sew this cute pompom trim to the back of the crochet 🙂

I love pompoms 😀

This last pic show the pink color of the wood as it is “live”

And for the second project…

I am sure you already guessed…

It is one more cute cat for my hubby… He chose the colors 😉

Nicolas-amineko

and I love it! These cats are really addictive 🙂

That’s all my friends 🙂

Next time I’ll tell you about the crazy project I am in now … It is taking all my time, I’m thinking about it all day long and it is making me crazy 🙂

Sending you happy kisses and lot lot of love through this post!

P.S: If you fancy making a cat you can order the book from the right sidebar of the blog between the lovely books. The book has very simple and clear instructions to make a cute cat on your own! Enjoy it!

A red stool: Before and after

Good morning!

I finished the cover for the pink stool but I tried it on a red stool I had at home and it was better. Much better…

Wanna see? Ok

Here is the red stool before:

Here are for you some pics to enjoy 😉

I’ve added a trim of green pompom and I love love love it 🙂

red-stool-4

This stool is a special order for a very kind lady… Even though I wished it was mine I am very happy that she loved it 😀 and that it will be cherished in its new home 🙂

red-stool-6

Here is “Mustard” saying goodbye to his friend…

red-stool-7

He was with me during all the steps of the stool’s making 😉

For this stool I used this yarn worked with a 2.5mm crochet hook.

Now I am finishing a second cover with the rico creative cotton. (I began this cover 14 months ago but did not blogged about it) This second cover will be for the pink stool. More about this in a next post 😉

Have to go now…

I hope that you loved the stool…

It is already gone to its new home and I kind of missed it here…

Have a lovely day!
