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 😉


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:


And here it is after….Tadaaaaaaaaaaaa…


Very happy with the result I must confess…

Here are for you some pics to enjoy 😉


A view from above…pretty colorful granny squares joined together as-I-go …


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


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 🙂


Here is “Mustard” saying goodbye to his friend…


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!

Hello lovelies!

Today is a special post cause it is a double tadaaa one 🙂 Yes two finished projects to show you 🙂

Number oooooooone….


My granny shawl … finally finished and looking gorgeous 🙂


I love it! Too bad it is already very hot now here and I’ll have to wait for september to wear it 🙁


Crocheted with my beloved 100% acrylic yarn nako vizon …


Following this very easy pattern … It was a real pleasure to make and I am deeply in love 🙂


As for number twooooooooo…It is a before-after kind of project…


A very ugly black wooden stool I totally forgot about it in my attic… and I saw it and thought: what if I make for it a crocheted cover and use it to hold one of my green plants 😉

soooooo there it is:


Granny square cover of course…what else ? 😉 made with leftover yarn ….


I love the contrast between the black and the other colours 🙂 mmmmh

and here it stands now…


What do you think?

Now, I have a long project for the summer…It is burning in my head and I started it last night…mmmmmh…I am totally totally totally excited about it… I love it too too much…and I can’t wait to show it to you…

The rocking chair: before and after :)

By | February 12th, 2013|Before and after, Corners of my home, Uncategorized|52 Comments

Gooooood morning my friend!

I am super duper happy today to show you the rocking chair and its before and after…

I know that many of you suggested that I leave it in its original color … sorry 🙁 I couldn’t …as I did not like at all its sad grey color… I had to transform it so every time I look at it I have a smiley idiot face 🙂 hahaha

I loved every suggestion you left for me… and after the original post I was a little bit confused between all these wonderful ideas: red, yellow, beige, blue, green, orange woooow! Wish I could have it in a different color each day…but I had to make a choice and here it was…

Are you readyyyyyyyy?








Yes, a blue lavender…the pics don’t show the color as it is “live”…The real color is a little bit more “purple” if you see what I mean…

This is the fabric I chose…


I am really really really so in love with my rocking chair as I keep changing the blanket and the pillow on it… and looking at it and smiling 🙂 yes, that idiot smile 😉

Two last pics for you…



Excuse the pics…the light was too much strong this morning…but I could not resist taking the pics as soon as I woke up 🙂

Thank you dear friend for your visit today… I am always very happy to have you and to read your sweet and kind mails and comments 🙂

Have a lovely sunshiny day!


P.S: I am still preapring the cute little crocheted “thing”…hope to show it to you soon 😉

Good moooorning, hello, bonjouuuuur

How are you? Hope you’re fine today! It seems like time is flying for me these days and I’m running like crazy 🙂 I wish I’ve had just a couple of hours per day to sit quietly and crochet 🙂

I’m making progresss on the baby granny blanket but it is a very slow one … I really should be finishing this blanket by now…but with an average of 10 minutes of crochet per day it is quite impossible 🙂

I’m loving the slow making of it…I must confess

Apart from that, life is quite and ordinary…we’re enjoying the summer days…we’re enjoying the “at-home” days…

 and we’re making progress too in our “construction-works”…we’ve already made the walls to divide the space:

Here is my future craft rooms (It has the two windows you see on the right side of this pic and the door on the left) The other half where I’m standing to take this pic is my hubby’s place…We’ll have a big closet in the middle to make a boundary between our two spaces 😉

Now, we’re gonna put new tiles on the floor (I’ll show you, next time, when it will be done)

Have a happy week my friend!
