October is here. Autumn is here. I love autumn. I love the colors, the “normal routine” in our life, the back to school and the mummy free time I have back in October 🙂 It is a lovely month not too cold not too hot in my part of the world. The light is beautiful. The perfect weather for crocheting and knitting too. I am working on 5 different wips and I am loving it 🙂 Yes, maybe it is too much but I love it. I don’t ever get bored of a project.
In crochet, I am actually joining the last squares of this beautiful blanket ♥
I wanted it to be a bedspread for one of the girls bed but I changed my mind when I tried it on the bed…
I changed my ming and decided to give it as a wedding gift…
and start a new bedspread for the girls…
a classic kind of colorful squares joined as I go with a last round of 1sc 3ch 1sc all around the square and in the 4 corners…
I love the simplicity of this design and find it better for a bedspread. What do you think?
I love how colorful it is and how simple too ♥
And how about knitting? Knitting is now my new addiction and I am totally hooked… I loooooove it…
and I can’t stop making colorful beanies for everybody 🙂
I started also a “trendy chale” inspired by my IG French ladies. It is a triangular very simple shawl very cosy and warm. And the soothing effect of knitting this simple stitch and increasing one stitch in every row is wonderful. My favorite project for the evenings…
It is growing very fast and the color is a deep orange very automnal. It is really beautiful but I can’t seem to catch it correctly in these pics. The yarn is lima drops and I love it♥
I still have my light blue shawl that I did not show you in this post . I will show it to you next time. It is very slowly growing. I really wish I had 48 hours a day 🙂
Wishing you a beautiful thursday!
Sending you love and hugs
August went really really fast this year and I still can not believe that we are already in September…
August was great. We went for a one week vacation to Club Med Palmiye Turkey and it was wonderful…
We spent a whole week with the children and I fully recharged my batteries 😉
I crocheted a lot in August… Finished my hexagons blanket (see previous post) and I started two bedspreads for the girls 🙂
I always wanted to make grannies bedspreads for my children. They have something I can’t explain. They remind me of my grandmother, the sweetness of my childhood and I really really love to crochet them…
They have a vintage touch I just adore 🙂 I am mixing different kinds of Stylecraft yarn. Mostly Stylecraft special DK, some Stylecraft alpaca tweed and some colors of the Stylecraft life range 🙂
I love the look of a granny square with mixed kinds of yarn ♥
For Christina my eldest daughter I’ll be joining the squares with parchment … and for Sarah, the joining color will be the dark grey (graphite) 🙂 My girls have very different characters and one is dark hair dark skin (Christina) the other is very blond (Sarah)
So contrasting grannies bedspreads they will have in their room 🙂 Can’t wait to finish them both 🙂
and I am also still crocheting my ripple with the Stylecraft life Dk and loving it more and more ♥
August has brought some changes in my home too. We painted our walls and I chose the yellow mustard (my favorite color of the moment) to paint the wall behind our bed ♥
and a wall in our sitting room ♥
I just looooove LOVE LOVE this color. So bright, so fresh and sooo warm ♥
(The painting color’s name is honey mustard from DULUX)
That is all for today my dearest friends!
Have to go now…
Sending you hugs and kisses through this post ♥
Yes, it is done 🙂 The first baby blanket is finished and it was a quick project. Very fast 🙂 But I love the result 🙂
Wanna see? Ok!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now it is going all the way from Beirut to Colorado . The baby is due in December so I am on time 🙂
I used this pattern to make the square and joined the squares as I go like in the chart 😉
For the edging I made 1sc-1hdc-1dc-1hdc-1sc in every 1sc-3ch-1sc of the previous round all around the blanket.
The yarn is a 100% acrylic and is called: Mirage
The hook is a 3.5mm one 😉
That’s all my lovelies. Hope you loved the baby blanket as much as I do 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend!
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…
I’ve added more colorful washi tape and my collection is slowly growing 😉
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 🙂
I’ve made a garland to hide a little bit my hubby’s stereo (which I don’t like but he does 😉 )…
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 😀
Some new colorful flowers bought from the local market made me very happy too 🙂 I love fresh flowers…
I’m still not done with my granny blanket… joining a square every time I have a spare moment…
Still have 7 squares to add and then the edging…
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 🙂
