Simple Pleasures

Hi friends!

I hope you are doing fine and that life is treating you well.

I am popping in today to share a couple of things that have been making me happy recently.

Like the colorful letters above. My heart skipped a beat when I found them in the shop the other day. They were exactly what I needed.

They where just the perfect size to fit in a yellow frame I had prepared for this mantra. It’s a little message I came across a few days back and loved it so much I thought it definitely deserved its own frame and a place in my office.

Make LOVE, PEACE and ART.

I love to knit during the holiday season. I do not know why, but it just is so. I love simple, repetitive patterns and the relaxed mood it brings.

This is the project I started this Christmas. I small blanket. Once it’s finished, it will probably be used as a car seat blanket for my little son.

I enjoy seeing LOVE popping up everywhere around these days. Hello St. Valentine’s Day, here we come!

Anyhow, love makes everything better, right? And I gladly grabbed this ‘love jar’ to be only mine.

Oh, and one more thing.

I really like stocking up on new items to offer in the upcoming giveaways here on this little site of mine. This time, I was lucky to find these cute sets of crochet hooks.

And some yarn too!

So stay tuned, there’s a new contest waiting just around the corner.

Thank you for letting me share! I wish you a lovely week!

With lots of love,

Crochet Owl Coasters Have Landed In The Shop

From time to time I receive a question asking me whether I sell actual crochet products in my shop. I reply that I design the items and make patterns, but maybe one day… And that day has come. I just had this strong feeling recently that I should be nice and polite and make some real stuff for those of you who like crocheted items but haven’t yet mastered this craft. As crochet owls are the product that you guys seem to like a lot in my shop, it was very easy for me to choose what to make.

Sooo, without further ado, a few crochet coasters have just landed in my shop. They are grouped into sets of 4. If you want to learn more details, you are more than welcome to… just click THIS link.

Done.

The colorful project that I showed you in my last post is all finished. For a while I dared change my old crochet-pattern-making ways and decided to make a few owl coasters. I made 32. Originally, I thought it would take me a week. It took me a month instead. A very sweet month, though.

Now onto dividing the coasters into colorful sets of 4 and into the shop they fly.

Will be back with more info soon.

Love,
Petra

Lately I have been trying to find bits and pieces of free time to work on my new colorful project. I will tell you more about it as soon as it’s finished and presentable. For now, I would like to share some of the colorful deliciousness that’s lying on my table right now.

Have I already mentioned that I loooove to crochet?!

And have I mentioned I loooove colors?!

And have I mentioned I loooove YOU?!
