More progress on my granny poncho…


I’ve crocheted 46 circles and began joining them on the front of the poncho…



I love it so far and can’t wait to finish it to wear it 🙂


Before closing this post, a pic of my nativity set just for us to remember that it’s all about him…


For a moment, forget about the presents, the food, the tree and decorations…

and remember that it is all about him 🙂

Jesus Christ is born! Allelouia!

Merry Christmas my friend!

May love, peace and joy fills your home and your heart!

Wishing you a blessed week!

Something new on my hook…

Good morning sweeties

This weekend I started something new…Yes I know I have already 4 crochet wips and one knitting but I could not help myself…

Inspired by this wonderful blog and the beautiful ponchos they make, I started a poncho for myself… a big poncho …something like a wearable blanket… Something that will keep me warm and free my hands and feet to move and do things at home… Something I can wear while crocheting in front of the T.V during the cold evenings…


And how big was my surprise when I read this morning Lucy’s post and discovered that she started a poncho for herself too 😀


This poncho I am crocheting is made of granny squares and a black border. I am loving too much the black against the other colors…

I started the front and the back separately….and I’ll sew them together once they are done…


I am using leftovers from my stash, mostly 100% acrylic nako vizon yarn with a 4.5mm hook…

You can find the graphic pattern of the square here. I’ll join the squares as I go and once the front and the back crocheted I’ll sew them together…


That’s all my friend! I hope that you like my new wip… Feel free to join me and crochet a happy poncho for yourself! Come on! Let’s crochet along 🙂

Have a wonderful week, stay warm and crochet crochet crochet 🙂

But it is growing …very slow…but growing…

25 rounds so far…

Good sunny morning to you all!

I hope that the sun is shining today in your part of the world 🙂

Today, a lot to share with you…

Progress on 3 wips and a good news…

Let’s begin with the wips shall we?

A new painting…I’m loving so far…

More slow progress on my Love Birds bed blanket….

Some squares were 100%done, some needs the last blue round and some are still babies…

but I’m happily working on it 🙂

and more progress on my poncho too : 19 rounds so far 😉

and finally the good news is: Yes, I’m expecting (you already guessed 😀 …but chuuuut I’m still afraid to tell 🙂

I am now in the last days of my third month but I still have that fear … I think it will never goes away… but my heart sings with joy when I think about the little baby growing inside of me 🙂

and yes, I’m gonna spoil him (or her) with a lot A LOT of crochet 🙂 For my first two babies (in 2005 and 2007), I did not crochet at the time, so my mother made for them crocheted blankets and I was making cross stitch for their rooms…but now…OH MY…I’m gonna make blankets, hats, socks, amigurumi toys, little sweaters… everything I can make with my hook 😉 I can not wait to STAAAAAAAAAART 🙂 crazy mom!

That’s all my sweet friends ! I am today very happy and calm! I hope you’re feeling the same!

THANK YOU so much as always for your support and your kind comments … I am so lucky to have you all 🙂

Have a wonderful week!
