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…
I am incredibly happy to introduce my newest creation to you today, my sweet Bohemian Crochet Dream Catcher.
It’s a project of love… 🙂
In fact, the hardest thing about this project was naming it… it definitely is a dream catcher… a picture too… a mixed media thing… so, yeah, I think I’ll just call it a dream catcher.
All in all, this project came out of nowhere, I had not planned to make anything like this, but when the image of it appeared in my mind I knew this was it. It needed to be put together.
Step-by-step, in a slow tempo, I kept adding bits and pieces to this picture, savoring every moment, building it layer by layer, attaching this and that, until I was happy with the overall feeling it gave out.
On top of making me incredibly happy while marveling at all its colors and bling, I am proud that this picture also has a mission.
With all its lush colors, shiny stones and Marilyn Monroe’s smile it attracts evil spirits (at least that’s what I decided to believe 🙂 ) and then, when they get nicely tangled in the catcher net, they get a lovely dose of Psalm 23 and some sweet love power coming from the heart charms attached to it.
And the evil just goes sssss… Burnt. Evaporated. Gone. Job done!
Love the embellishments.
A great thing to protect the home… 🙂
Thanks friends for letting me share.
I wonder, do you like to fill your home with items that are supposed to protect or clear the space? What are they?
