Hello lovelies, I am very very happy to announce that the Vstitch baby blanket is done and it is now for sale in my Etsy shop HERE 🙂 I love love love how it turned out. So soft, tender looking and happy and bright too 🙂 I really loved working on it and using a new to me “palette” of colors. Adding the bright orange made it really look “special” 😉 I chose to make for it a very simple edging made with picots (my favorite) It is made with excellent quality acrylic yarn (Nako Vizon) Hook: 4.5mm Size: 115 x 65 cm Pattern: HERE Hope you liked this blanket as much as I love it ♥ Wishing you a beautiful week! Sucrette
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!
Hello hello sweeties,
A very lucky girl is writing to you right now 🙂 You want to know why? Well two days ago I received the most gorgeous pack from the postman. A pack coming straight to me from the U.K. A pack of the most gorgeous yarn arrived to my little country…
A gift of 18 balls of the most wonderful yarn and a keyring and a bag too 🙂 Yes, a gift 🙂 And no need to tell you how much this made me happy. I was happy singing and dancing all day long 🙂
I sent by whatsup the pic above telling hubby and my friends how lucky I was 🙂
This wonderful gift was sent to me by Stylecraft in order to try their yarn. They sent 15 beautiful shades of Life DK (feels like I have chosen the colors myself) and 3 of the latest colors of the Special DK. Oh how I love all these colors 🙂 I love love love them ♥
I can’t wait to start something with them all 🙂 I told you I am a lucky girl 🙂 THANK YOU STYLECRAFT! THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY ♥
Meanwhile, before receiving this lovely gift, I started a Vstitch baby blanket that will go in my Etsy shop.
I chose beautiful shades of pastels. Not at all my “palette” of colors but I feel like having pastels in my life right now ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Aren’t they lovely? So soft and calming colors…
I think that the V stitch is my favorite. It soothes me and calms me and it is perfect for the TV time 😉
I love how this is turning out. And I love how quickly it grows. Never get borred with a V stitch 🙂
Before leaving you, this is my June month 🙂
A lovely colorful month 🙂
Now, I must, MUST, MUST start something with these beauties. Any idea?
Wishing you a lovely weekend!
Good morning sweet people
January was a very good month…
And I feel that the days are running so fast… we are february 6 already 🙂
The second finished project for 2015 is a Vstitch scarf…
A very fast crocheted scarf (less than one week and it was done) that I am wearing a lot these days and that I cherish…
And a very long scarf too 🙂 (I can turn it twice around my neck)
I love the V stitch… a very therapeutic stitch that you can work on while watching TV… And a very fast stitch too… It works fast and is a real pleasure to crochet …
I used the Nako Vizon aran yarn and a 4.5mm hook… I love the colors…
and what I loved the most is that I did not have ends to hide… I used the ends to make a fringe 🙂
and I love how it finally turned out 🙂
*You can have the Vstich chart HERE
Will bake a cake today and will enjoy the last day before the weekend 🙂
Wishing you a lovely Friday!
P.S: I will come back very soon with MY CROCHET MOOD BLANKET 2014 TADAAAAA POST. Because it is finished, it is gorgeous and it really deserves a post of its own 😉
