Hello dear friends!
I am sending you my warm Sunday greetings! May your day be lovely, happy and blessed.
We have been spending our Sunday mostly outside (oh my goodness, the weather has been marvelous over here in the heart of Europe, so INVIGORATING). And I was lucky enough to find me some precious moments and hide myself in my ‘office’ (a.k.a. Happy Room) where I enjoy spending my time hidden behind columns of colorful yarn squares. The bliss!
Things of various crochet kinds have been going on here recently, I have been happily working on a couple of projects and I am eager to share more as soon as there is some significant progress achieved.
For now, sending you looooots of love,
I hope you are doing fine and that life is treating you well.
As usual, the pattern contains a written part and a part called a picture tutorial with many step-by-step pictures to help you along the way.
This is a quick and fun project producing cute ornaments for your home or to give as a gift to your loved ones.
Although my home is now being protected by quite a few of these lovely happy angels, I am really looking for the holidays to place them on my Christmas tree and to gift them to my friends and family.
I wish you Happy Crocheting!
With lots of love,
I am super excited today to let you know that I have just finished a new pattern for you today. It’s a knitted project for my beloved Cable Blanket… and if you’d like to find more details about it straight away, you can find it here and here.
To my astonishment I have just recently realized that I introduced this blanket design to you almost a year ago. Time really flies!
And have I already mentioned that me and this blanket, it’s a true love? Want to see a proof?
I have made quite a few and I am not really sure I am done… 🙂
I often wonder what is it about those twists and cables that mesmerize me so and make me start another blanket as soon as I finish one…
This project has made me happy during some rainy days.
Or some days when I needed to do some thinking.
I am madly in love with all of these cute blanket. They work great as baby blankets and as lap blankets for adults too.
Wishing you a lovely day and sending lots of love.
First of all, Happy Easter to all of you who celebrate it! May it be PEACEFUL and nice!!
And now, the picture… I made this one just recently for my own place, to hang above my baby’s bed, to be more precise. One can never have enough positive energy at home, right?
So yes, once again I dived into what’s so close to my heart – the angels’ realm. As I mentioned in my previous post, I had long been looking for a new way to display my crochet items, and one day – out of nowhere, I got this idea to attach them to pictures, painted or decoupaged. My head has since been buzzing with new ideas, the only thing now I need is TIIIME (but who doesn’t, right?) !!! 🙂
Trying both a slightly new crocheting technique and the technique of decoupage for the first time, I have to say that I am pretty happy how they both turned out. I might describe the crocheting technique in one of my future posts. The decoupaged part has been created by gluing pieces of torn napkins onto a firm paper (I used 1:1 water-glue solution for gluing).
Also, sun-catching elements are kind of my obsession right now and I have happily used them to embellish this picture too – I just looooove meeeee some golden buttons, charms, golden leaves and crystals. Gimme, gimme more…
Just recently I bought a couple of painter’s canvases to try how and if a decoupage works there… I’ll definitely share it with you when more pictures are done…
Oh, and if you are a fan of decoupage or have some experience or advice in that, please do share! I’d love to hear your thoughts…
With lots of love,
