and my place, my home filled with the people I love the most and the things I love the most and of course filled with crochet, too much crochet 🙂

Because it is all about this wonderful craft called crochet… I really could not live without it in my life… Could you?

Wishing you a lovely weekend!

12 pics of happiness shared with you my friends 🙂

I hope you liked my V stitch blankie 🙂

Now for the technical info part:

Yarn: Nako Vizon a 100% acrylic yarn

Hook: 4.5mm

Beginning chain: 146

V stitch chart: HERE

Edging: Pompoms: Inspired from the lovely blog of Vanessa: HERE 

I made the pompoms and just tied them with the last row of my v stitch.

To make the pompoms: I used the Clover Making pompoms. size: small. These are super great and easy. You’ll make a pompom in less than a minute 🙂 You can buy them online from HERE.

My piece of advice: Must try the Vstitch. It is an easy, relaxing, soothing, beautiful, textured and addictive stitch.

I’ll leave you now with a last pic of me under my blankie before making the edge. It was on Sunday morning. Excuse the sleepy hair and face 😉

Sending you vibes of happiness!

Take care

Crochet is my therapy

Good morning beautiful people!

I hope that you are ok, happy and healthy wherever you are.

Today’s post is an update of my current crochet wips. What else to share with you my likeminded friends? 😉

1

Most of the time, specially in the evenings, I crochet so I don’t think much, I crochet so I don’t look at the news, I crochet so I don’t become crazy… That’s why every week I have a lot of crochet to share… It is my medicine, my anti stress, my kind of escape for a better world where everyone live in PEACE with everyone. The world has become an horrible place so much violence, blood and injustice that you have to find your way to not become insane 🙂

So, my dear friend, here is what I am up to these days… Working on 3 different wips

* A granny squares bedspread for our bed…just grannies surrounded with black… I am making now the squares will join them later… I am not even half way done but I love doing grannies, they are my favorite that’s why no hurry …I am taking my time enjoying every stitch 🙂

* My Crochet Mood Blanket 2014. Up to date 🙂 Proud of it 🙂 I love it soooo much 🙂 I am crocheting one square a day and above in the close up pic you can see the hole month of July 🙂

*And finally my latest addiction: The Vstitch blanket 🙂 if you’re following me on Instagram or Facebook you already know about how much I am addicted to this project  😀 You have to try it! It is … well… ADDICTIVE 😉

Well… my sweeties… These were the 3 wips I am working on at the moment. Crochet is my therapy to face this cruel world and the war that is threatening my beautiful country… I need your prayers my friends… I don’t know if I’ll have internet or no in the coming days due to the situation here 🙁 It is really awful 🙁 Please pray for my country and for its army… Pray for the innocent people… Pray for a better tomorrow…

Thank you so much dear readers… It really means a lot having you here 🙂

Peace and Love

We’ve had a wonderfully sunshiny beautiful week in Turkey (Letoonia club – Fethiyeh). Enjoying the sun, the beach, the sand in our toes 🙂

We’ve really needed this one week vacation away from everything to recharge our batteries (mine was really really empty 🙂 )
