Polka Dot Squares

Hi friends! How are you doing? I hope everything is fine. It definitely is with me.

I am enjoying the first weeks in our new place, decorating this and that, taking lovely long trips around the neighborhood and basically, being very happy and content. Of course, my days involve a lot of crocheting too.

Which is exactly what I wanted to share with you today.

I have a new project that I dived into a couple of weeks ago. It’s a polka dot blanket. Currently, I am in the stage of making about one zillion squares, but I see the result taking a sharper shape each day. Love this project to bits. I took a few pictures from my crafting table for you to today…

Thank you for letting me share. I will show you the whole blanket as soon as it’s finished.

Btw, do you have any projects that you are working on these day? Do share!

With love,

Petra

 

New Pattern – Crochet Flower Rug

Do you remember the flower madness that I showed you a couple of days ago?

That madness, it actually was my big plan to create a rug. A circular area rug with lots of flowers in it.

After a lot of crocheting, tweaking, unraveling and crocheting again, I am happy to present my newest design to you – I named it the Crochet Flower Rug!

And of course, there is a pattern. As usual, it is packed full of pictures to help you with your crafting process. This time, there’s 46 of them!

I hope you will find this project useful and will decorate your home or office with it. It will sure bring a bit of ‘romantic’ into your space.

Enjoy!

Flower Power

Hi friends!

I hope you are having a great summer!

I realized that, when it comes to crafting and crochet during this season, I like to reach towards larger and very relaxing projects. Something that is repetitive and there’s not much thinking involved. Hot days and thinking? No no… not for me… thank you.

Just stitch after stitch after stitch… forever.

With exactly that attitude in my mind I found myself designing a large and chunky project that I took a few pictures of today. I will share more details with you as soon as the whole thing gets finished and the pattern gets written down. So, if you need me, I will be right here making my seven million flowers. :)

By the way, what is your favorite summer project? Is there anything you enjoy working on these days? Do tell!

With love,
Petra

 

Reader Love

I don’t even know how this all happened… but what I do know is that here I am, almost 5 years into this wild blogging thing called ZoomYummy. Almost five whole years!! Wow! When did all this happen?

Frankly, it does not even feel like that much time has passed since my first post. And it’s because of you, dear readers! You’ve turned this blogging game into such a fun and interesting journey! Thank you SO MUCH for your support!

Sharing my work with you and hearing your feedback is what makes me never want to stop. And when I get a chance to see some of your creations that were made either following my crochet patterns or my recipes, I get totally and completely thrilled. And SO thankful! Just like when I got pictures from my dear customer Roxann Morin from Eclecticcrochet.com. It’s her who’s made the owl coaster shown in the picture above (she used this pattern). Don’t you just love her color choices and the precision of her work. I am IN LOVE!

Oh, and have a look at this owl purse that she’s crocheted as well (using this pattern). Roxann has made eight of these for her friends already!! I am so glad she’s allowed me to show her gorgeous work to you!

If you’d like to share your creations that were made following my patterns or recipes, please send them to zoomyummy@gmail.com. I would love to see them and perhaps publish them as well! And please include a credit link (your blog link, your Facebook page link or something of that kind) if you want me to publish it next to the picture of your work.

With love,
Petra
