Simple Pleasures

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.

 

simple pleasures

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.

 

simple pleasures

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.

 

simple pleasures

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.

 

simple pleasures

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,
Petra

Hi friends!

How are you doing? I hope everything is fine in your lives.

I am having a really great week. I feel relaxed, energized, happy. And I am thankful for everything being really nice in my life right now.

In addition, there are a few little things that I am enjoying immensely at the moment.

Like the project I am working on that is shown in the picture above. It has to stay a little secret for now, but more details will be revealed really soon… 🙂

 

crocheted hearts

These crocheted hearts. They were used in one of my previous projects and now I kind of can’t stop making them. I am trying to figure out another project for them to be used in. Maybe they could decorate a flower pot.

Or they could look lovely if turned into a garland…

 

variegated yarn

And this new variegated yarn that I found in my favorite local store. I am still not sure what to use it for. Perhaps a baby blanket would be a fine idea. Those will be much needed around here in the near future. Do you have any suggestions?

Wishing you a great week!

Love,
Petra
 

Big Summer Yarn Giveaway!

big summer yarn giveaway on ZoomYummy.com

I have some good news on the home front! We have finally moved. As you might have noticed, I was a bit stressed about the whole thing, but now, with each and every box, crochet hook and spatula successfully moved and unpacked, I am starting to enjoy the settling in phase. I can’t wait to start taking pictures of new recipes and some new hooky stuff to share with you. Soon!

Till then, to celebrate the big move thing and mostly, to thank you for your patient waiting for me to have time to sit down to my computer again, I am GIVING AWAY some delicious YARN today. It’s bulky, soft and very easy to work with. I actually used it to make my latest project – the Crochet Flower Rug. The package that ONE of you can receive has just enough yarn to make the above mentioned rug. Or anything else that will please you. Oh, and it comes with a crochet hook too!
