Good morning my friend!

How are you? How’s everything in your part of the world?

Today, I want to show you my finished cowl, the beginning of a new ripple blanket for baby Joe and many other things…

First, there is something that made me super happy this week end:

One of my patterns has been featured in AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns…yaaay 🙂 It is in a free e-book that includes 7 different ripple patterns. Please feel free to download a copy of this lovely e-book from this link:

Thank you allfreecrochetafghanpatterns 🙂

So I started a new blanket for baby Joe using this particular ripple pattern…Here is what I’ve been up to so far…

I’m loving so much the colors 🙂

I wanted to make, using the same colors, a moss stitch blanket for Joe…I started it but felt that it will never finish on time and that the winter will pass before he can use it… so I stopped…The moss stitch is wonderful but the progress you make with that stitch specially when you have a time-consuming-little-baby is very very slow…that’s why I chose to make a ripple instead…

Here is my finished cowl using the moss stitch:

Excuse the pics taken with my PJ 🙂 but that’s what I’m wearing most of the days 🙂 hahaha

The cold days are slowly coming in our country and the crocheted bedspreads are back again on our beds…

In Joe’s room:

In the girls’s room:

And in our’s too:

Our room is still waiting for its new beadspread “love birds” which is still not finished 🙁

and finally finally the love of my life…

Baby Joseph who’s now 2 months old

and who’s making his first smiles

Have a happy week 🙂

Big big kisses from the bottom of my heart!

Baby’s patchwork bedspread

How are you today? Must show you the patchwork bedspread which I finished on September15 before little Joseph was born! Must must show you 😉 Tadaaaaaaaaaaaa


This bedspread is crocheted with a 100% acrylic yarn called Mirage and a 3.5mm crochet hook.

It is made with traditional 6 rounds granny squares joined together as-I-go with Lucy’s wonderful method 🙂

and for the edging I made 1 round of granny’s and my ole-ole border that I love so much 🙂

The bedspread is made with 154 squares (14×11) with a variety of colors (all leftovers from my stash) 🙂

and I’m in love with it 🙂

Today the girls are back to school …

Not so happy to leave their little bro at home with me 🙂 hehehe

Wishing you a wonderful day!

I hope you liked the patchwork bedspread 🙂

Thank you sooooomuch for visiting!

Big big kisses from Christina, Sarah, Baby Joe and me!

A small update

Good morning my sweet friends

I’m missing blogging these days…

I’m missing blogging, knitting and crocheting 🙁

I have the carpal tunnel syndrome … I am having tingling and numbness in my hands … and this is making me crazy…preventing me from working with my hands… which I’m not used too…at all…

and I still have two weeks to go before my C-section due date … Grrrrr… how to pass the time when you can not do anything with your hands??? tell me…

This is a quick update with all my wips…I have to show you…even though I’m working like 1% of my usual hobby time and my fingers are hurting me like crazy…

First, my mother taught me how to follow knitting instructions from a book to make a little sweater for my baby…

It is not so difficult and I began… after many trials this is what I’ve been up to…

I’m very proud of myself 🙂 hehe and I feel like a bright new door opened for me… even though I’ll have to wait for this bad carpal tunnel syndrome to go away…

I’ve made little progress in the jacquard cushion too… adding small hearts 🙂

and more progress in the patchwork crocheted baby’s bedspread 😉

This will have to wait too…

but I’ll wait…what can I do? It is after all for a good cause 🙂

Have to go now… excuse me if I’ll be less present here in the coming days…

I’ll miss you for sure…

Big big kisses to you through this post…

See you soon 😉

A little bit of this…a little bit of that

Good morning sweeties,

I’ve enjoyed reading your comments and your experiences concerning crochet v/s knitting on my previous post… Most of you prefers crochet and I think that will be the case for me too…

Now I’m still learning and enjoying the music of my needles…I discovered the joy of crocheting with bamboo needles and I’ve made some real progress in the “jacquard” thanks to some really good videos on youtube. Thank you for telling me about the videos… that helps a lot a lot 🙂

So, here is what I’ve been up to in knitting…

I started a “jacquard” cushion 🙂 hehe

Not very neat but I feel that I’m making progress in learning and that’s what counts eh? 😉

I’m really proud of myself 🙂 hehe

Now, I’m waiting for my mummy to teach me how to follow instructions to make a small vest for my baby…

I’ve made some progress too on the baby’s patchwork bedspread …

I really really love it 🙂

I decided to add 1 row on each side (right and left) so it will drop more nicely from each side… and I still have also 4 rows to add to the top (I don’t know if you’re understanding what I mean 🙂 ) That will be 68 squares left 🙂

but I’m enjoying crocheting it to the max 😀

My due date is around september 15 …so I still have around 3 weeks to go…I give birth by Cesarian so I began feeling a little stressed about the day … even though I can’t wait to see my little baby and hold him in my arms 🙂

I wish you a beautiful day wherever you are!

Thank you for visiting!

Hugs to all
