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 🙂
This week I started a new project with the beautiful yarn the kind and generous people from Stylecraft sent me.
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.
I love how it soothes me and calms me and how I can crochet it in front of the T.V.
I am loving the colors too much too 🙂 Aren’t they gorgeous?
The yarn is Stylecraft Life DK.
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.
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?
Can’t wait to color them all.
It is completely addictive and I even bought a box of 45 coloring pencils 🙂
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!
Good morning lovelies,
April is gone, and May is here. I love May. It is my birthday month (tomorrow May 7 I’ll be 37) but I love it for other reasons. It is for me the month of hope, the month of sun, good weather, birds, flowers 🙂 It is my favorite month. You can not be too sad in May 🙂
I feel always that I am neglecting this blog of mine. I go for long periods of time and I miss blogging… but life is really really busy … and the days are passing too quickly…
I’ve been having some technical issues with my blog lately and I know that many of you dears friends who are subscribed in the email notifications are not receiving any 🙁 and I am sooo sorry about that… Hope that you’ll receive this post today 🙂
I’ve been crocheting a lot, using a lot of colors (that is what I love to do), mixing colors, relaxing with my hook and yarn, enjoying Instagram and Facebook (I am an Instagram addict 😉 ),
baking, cooking and discovering the joy of staying in my kitchen 🙂 I am discovering a new passion and really enjoying cooking and baking books and trying new recipes and soooooo loooooooving it 🙂
I am like a baby discovering the world around him for the first time. Where was I during all these years? Why did I use to hate everything kitchen related? WOOOW I am constantly saying WOOOOW and my family is really happy with that new passion of mine 🙂
Now that is Spring is here the whole house has been dressed with a spring touch 🙂
Fresh colors everywhere and it feels really good 🙂 How I love Spring!
Whishing you a lovely day whatever you’ll be doing 🙂
I won’t be long… I promise 😉
♥ Sending you all my love ♥
