Another week…

Good mornng everyone!

Another week had gone by so quickly and I feel like I am such a bad blogger 🙁 Don’t know what’s happening to me… why am I always so busy…why am I always so tired… that I sleep sometimes around 9:00 pm…

A lot happened in my colorful world this past week…a lot I did not blog about…

1-playroom

A bunting has been added to the playroom… (please look at the bunting and ignore the mess 🙂 )

2-sarah-6-years-old

A birthday has been celebrated…This little girl of mine turned 6 🙂

3-kitchen-crochet-shelves

4-kitchen-crochet-shelves

Some lovely cotton-crocheted-by-my-mother-shelves have been added to my kitchen…

5-kitchen-crochet-shelves

Oh mum you are THE BEST 🙂 THANK YOUUUUUUUU for these beauties 🙂

6-kitchen-crochet-shelves

This is the kind of crochet I can not simply do… I am not so patient you see 🙂

7-kitchen-crochet-shelves

Crocheting with this thin cotton thread is simply magic and my mother is that kind of fairy 🙂

8-new-bins

Some spotty colorful bins have been added to the kitchen too…

9-I-heart-you-shawl-one-skein

The first 100g of soft blue has been crocheted on the “I heart you” shawl…

10-happy-blankie-squares

55 squares have been almost added to the happy blankie squares (yes almost…the 4th row is still missing for 20 of them 🙂 )

You see a lot happened…

I feel like I am a loving but exhausted mum…

a happy hooker …

but such a bad blogger…

Hope that things will get better on this front soon 😉

Wishing you a wonderful week my friend!

Kisses

I heart you :)

Hello!

Thank you so much for your great response about the new shawl I’m crocheting at the moment!

It is a pure pleasure to make and I feel like it’s gonna be gorgeous!I-heart-you

This is as promised its diagram…

Sorry if I’m posting just a diagram for this as I don’t know how to explain patterns with words and I know that many of you keep asking me about written patterns…I really should learn how to do this stuff 😉 One day…

I-heart-you-diagram

The diagram is made of

– double tr (U.K terms) or tr (U.S terms) ou double brides (French terms)

– dc (U.K) or sc (U.S) ou maille serrees (French)

– chain stitch ou maille en l’air (French)

and you begin it from the bottom of the shawl.

I hope that the diagram is clear for you my friend…

For this shawl, I’m using a super soft yarn called Nako baby. It is a 50%acrylic 50%polyamid yarn and I’m crocheting it with a 3.75mm crochet hook.

I-heart-you-progress

Have to go now…

If you’ll be making this beautiful shawl, please do tell me cause it makes me very very happy to know that you are crocheting along with me 🙂

Kisses from the bottom of my heart!

P.S: I have some sort of spammy stuff on the blog with links everywhere and open windows that leeds you to nowhere…when this happens please try to click on the “to back” button so you can view the post. I’m trying to fix all these problems with hubby asap and asking for your patience… so sorry about that!

Hello there!

Good morning sweeties,

I’ve been away from this blog due to some family time, school preparations and home organisation….pfff… Next week I’ll be taking some rest finally… and I’ll be more present here (I hope so…)

I missed you guys and missed blogland and missed writing on this blog…Life can sometimes be like a race against time (google translate thank you 🙂 )

applique-cushion-with-hearts-1

I thought I’ll pop by today just to show you little bits of my creative life… There is so much going on there but so little time for blogging… I finished the cushion you saw above… I sew these hearts by hand and I like how it turned out…

applique-cushion-with-hearts-2

I am still working on these granny squares (that I still don’t know what they’ll become hahahaha )

granny-with-white-1

I am loving this project so much! Oh how I love granny squares 🙂

granny-with-white-2

It is I think the best thing I love to crochet… granny squares 🙂

granny-with-white-4

And I love how the colors melt together… A perfect project for quite evenings when the children are in bed FINALLY … It is the best hour… I feel like all the tiredness of the day just goes away when I hold my hook… around 8 o’clock…

granny-with-white-3

and I started something new too… (can’t help myself) (If you follow me on facebook or instagram you already saw this pic below)…

It is a shawl in the most perfect and soft blue color… (This pic does not show the color as it is “live” I’ll try next time to have a more accurate pic 😉 )

I asked hubby when showing him this : What are you seeing? He answered: Nothing. 🙂 But I was really happy that when I posted the pic on instagram and facebook you ladies saw hearts like myself…Yes, I saw hearts and fell in love with this…

It is a very old paper (a photocopie in black and white) I found in my mother’s house and I just could not help myself trying out the diagram… and it worked… and I am loving how it is turning out… So, if you’re interested, I’ll try to take a pic of the diagram and post it for you…

That’s all sweet ladies around the globe… It was a pleasure being with you today… I’m sending you all my love and lots of kisses!

Thank you for visiting, for commenting and for asking about the situation in my country… You can never imagine how much I appreciate your kind messages 🙂

THANK YOU!

South bay shawlette…finally!!!

south-bay-shawlette-1

south-bay-shawlette-2

south-bay-shawlette-3

south-bay-shawlette-4

south-bay-shawlette-5

south-bay-shawlette-7

south-bay-shawlette-6

Yes, it is FINALLY done 🙂 I’m very pleased with the result but I must confess I did not enjoyed the whole making process because it was my first one-color-project 🙂 I am not used to work with just one color …I get bored easily 😉

The pattern is lovely…It is a free Lion brand’s one and you can find it on ravelry under the name: South bay shawlette… here 🙂

If you like the pattern and you are used to work single color projects… I sooo recommend you give it a go 🙂

The result is beautiful! don’t you think?

Wishing you a beautiful week my friend
