Today is a double tadaaa post dedicated for ponchos 🙂

The girls ponchos are done and they are looking gorgeous wearing them today 🙂


I enjoyed every single stitch crocheted… They are very very easy to make…

Using a soft acrylic yarn called baby nako and a 3.5mm hook …


I made a super simple edging with picots as a last round:  3dc…3chain+1sc in the first chain …3dc etc etc

I love picots… and I think that they are very cute as edgings 😉


Here are the ponchos done and already in good use 😉



The girls are in love with their ponchos and I am very very happy that they love them that much 🙂 proud mama 😉


You can make your own poncho following this pattern right here 🙂

It is very simple to make and you’ll enjoy crocheting it 🙂


Leaving you with a last pic of my Sarah who lost her first tooth last week 🙂

Have a super day my friend

and happy crocheting!

Hello there!

It’s been a crazy chaotic kind of week… very fast… running days… and I’ve had barely time to hold my hook…

I sometimes sit… and take long breathes and remember to enjoy the moment…sit…breathe…and enjoy…

sit for some minutes… a little bit… do something I love…like crochet… just for a few minutes and then run again… Life is sometimes crazy…but it is beautiful 🙂








This post today is a quick one with few pics just to say hello… I’m still here… will try to be back very soon… still working on my wips and… thinking of you in your corner of the world… enjoy your day and your weekend too 🙂

An update for you of my current crochet wips… what else to share? and little things of my everyday too 😉


My Vintage stripy blanket… slowly growing… I’m really enjoying each and every stitch of this eclectic piece of crochet 🙂


My beloved filofaxes…  I am now completly addicted to them 🙂


My new owl, added to my collection… It is big but very cute…and I loved it the second I spotted it on a local shop…


My Crochet Mood blanket, slowly growing too…


I love it too much…It is one of my favorites 😉


The ponchos of my girls… almost done… yes… almost… Hope to finish them before spring 😉


Did you spot my kickers in the pic above… I am in love with my old comfy shoes…they remind me my childhood… and I always have a pair to wear when I’m feeling a little blue 🙂 They cheer me up 😉


Back to my coffee, before the children wake up and the weekend starts 🙂

Weekends are always exciting but I feel like I am dead on Sunday nights 🙂 Do you feel the same?

Have a super one my friend!

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!

I breathe crochet :)

Hello there!

How’s everything?

This post is again about my hooky update 😉 Sometimes I feel like I breathe crochet 🙂


I choose some yarn… bright and beautiful colorful yarn to start the girls ponchos… I love when children wear colorful clothes… Don’t you agree?

And I started the two ponchos together…


Christina, my oldest girl (8years) chose the yellow to begin with… Here is her poncho so far…


And Sarah (6years old) chose the fushia to start with 🙂


The yarn I am using is called Nako Lux Ninnos a very soft yarn with bright and lovely colors… It is worked with a 3.5mm hook…

I chose for the girls to make this granny poncho… It is very soothing and relaxing to work on… very simple pattern to follow once you make your first two rounds… I just love this design 🙂

You can find the pattern right here 😉


I’ve added also more stripes to my vintage stripy blanket…


I love the colors melting on this project… and I love to pick it on the evenings while watching TV with hubby 😉


And my crochet mood blanket is slowly growing. In the pic above you can see the first 20 days of February…


and on this one you can see it all (January + 20 days of February) …

What do you think?  Are you in love like myself? 😀

You can find here the chart of the squares and how I am joining them together as I go with the last round 😉


I am back to my yellow filofax and using it every night to plan the next day is always a pleasure for me… I love when everything is clearly written on a paper… I am “old-fashion” I know 😉

Have to go now…

I’m wishing you a beautiful day!
