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

 

New Pattern – Colorful Crochet Flower

Hi friends!

I have a new crochet project for you today!

A Colorful Crochet Flower!!!

I designed it with nothing but summer on my mind.

As a result, the project turned out really easy and cheerful. Rather moreish, if I might describe a crochet project this way… That word came to my mind just because after you finish one crochet flower you will most probably want to make another one. And then one more. At least my experience definitely was like that. I am working as a busy bee to make enough flowers for a garland, a vertical hanging decor for a wall and a few flowers to be used as cushion appliques. And maybe one for a purse too. Pure joy!

If you like this project and would like to crochet these flowers too, then you can find the pattern and all the details in my shop. The pattern includes 37 step-by-step pictures to help you along the way and turn the project into a really fun and easy activity.

A Colorful Crochet Summer Surprise

Hi friends!

How is your life going? I hope everything is fine.

I myself am having a really good time, I have to say. As you would suppose, I am spending most of my days at my crafting table… dreaming about new projects, crocheting, trying to find the loveliest yarn color combos, attaching beads and sequins to my crochet ornaments… just playing, you know. What a life! I know.

Currently I am working on a little colorful project. It’s making me super happy. I think it’s just the perfect thing for summer! Right now I am in the finishing phase of the whole process where I am shooting the steps and writing down the pattern. Can’t wait to share it all with you. Just stay tuned!

Wishing you the most amazing first days of summer!

With love,
Petra
