New beginnings

Hello lovelies,

I feel like summer has begun and with it a lot of fun times ahead 🙂 I love Summer. I love when there is no school. I love when there is no morning runs and afternoon homeworks. I love when the weather is beautiful and the sun is shining 🙂 And the time is flying gently 🙂

1

This week I started a new project with the beautiful yarn the kind and generous people from Stylecraft sent me.

2

A ripple blanket made from this pattern. I love this ripple. It is lighter than the original one. I love its simple stitches and the lovely result they give.

3

I love how it soothes me and calms me and how I can crochet it in front of the T.V.

4

I am loving the colors too much too 🙂 Aren’t they gorgeous?

The yarn is Stylecraft Life DK.

5

Well, now I have these four crochet projects I am working on. The 4 of them are blankets. We can never have too many wips, no?

This week also I discovered a new addictive activity and treated myself with a gorgeous book.

6

A coloring book for adults. I loved this one in particular because I love Folk art. I love their simple naive designs associated with beautiful bold colors. I can’t tell you how much I am hooked. Now you can find me coloring instead of crocheting and that is a shame 🙂

Let me show you some of the gorgeous pages to color…

Aren’t they lovely?

9

Can’t wait to color them all.

10

It is completely addictive and I even bought a box of 45 coloring pencils 🙂

11

I really recommend this book if you love folk art. There are a lot of lovely other themed coloring books you can order from amazon. Just search for ” coloring books for adults ” or ” just add colors ” and you’ll discover a wonderful choice 🙂

I am spending long hours of coloring with my girls (Joe is still too young) and we are all enjoying this new addiction 🙂

Wishing you a colorful day!

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 🙂

IMG_3368

I love repeating the same chores…

IMG_3376

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

IMG_3383

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…

IMG_3399

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

IMG_3386

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,

Before leaving you today I want to apologize for being such a bad blogger… I know that I barely write a comment or reply to an email or comment and I am really ashamed of myself… But believe me, I always write my posts in a hurry… I am always in a hurry… so excuse my lack of writing back to you 🙁 I promise to make efforts… I always visit, read your posts but don’t comment 🙁 Bad me….

Wishing you a lovely weekend!

Kisses
