Hello!

I am sending you my warmest greetings from the spoon… (Can you see me waving at you?)

Anyway, I’ve just finished crocheting this placemat.

More precisely, it is an Easter placemat (… and I only hope it resembles an egg).

And yes, there are two of them… because there are two of us who share the table.

My boyfriend grins slightly when I serve him food these days…

Nevertheless, I think he is slowly getting used to my colorful Spring ‘n Easter worshiping mania.

In case someone arrives to visit, they will have to dine like this too – no matter how hard they might fight, kick or scream – there’s just no way to escape my Easter placemats.

If you feel like it, you can make these cuties too.

I’ve prepared the pattern for you.

It’s quite easy and it will provide you with the sweet, precious time to relax and watch you favorite programs without feeling guilty for just sitting and staring at the TV screen (whoops… somebody has just revealed her huge secret… many Martha Stewart shows have been watched here recently).

This is the pattern:

This blogging thing might be the best thing ever invented.

Really.

Maybe right after sweets.

OK… sweets and comedies.

OK… sweets, comedies and … let me stop myself right here and leave…

NOT (you’re gonna have to remove me ’cause I ain’t going nowhere).

Anyways, it’s gorgeous because blogging keeps me thinking about new projects and makes me go on.

I just LOVE IT…

With Easter being just around the corner, I think it is a very good idea to get ready and stuff your home with as many Easter eggs as possible.

And why not have some of them crocheted?

This is my way of creating them.

You can find a pattern below… until then, enjoy the step-by-step pictures.

This is an almost finished egg waiting to be stuffed.

You can stuff your crocheted egg with scrape yarn, cotton stuffing, fiberfill or polyfill.

These can be found in your supermarket or in a craft store.

I marked the ends of the rounds with this pin to know where they started and where they finished.

I really like the shape of this egg (and really don’t like the dryness of my hands).

It’s so cute.

With every new little spring decoration I manage to get, I become more and more relieved.

Because I like to welcome this greatest season of all in a really big style.

With lots of love,

How to Crochet a Lovely Flower

I love working with yarn.

I love knitting, I love crocheting… I just love everything that has something to do with yarn.

It seems to have some magic power over me.

The colors, the needles, the stitches – they transport me into a quiet, peaceful and happy universe.

And I am really lucky to be surrounded by people who like to use the things I make for them (except for my boyfriend – I just can’t make him like and wear slippers like these … and I can’t figure out why).

I made these for my Mom…

Flowers – they make me so happy.

I love to be surrounded by flowers – real or made of yarn – any kind of a flower makes my heart sing.

If you speak the crochet language and would like to create a flower like this, then I have a little surprise for you.

THE FLOWER PATTERN everybody!

And it’s really easy.

As you can see the flower consists of two layers.

They are both made separately – first, the top flower with the yellow center and red edges and then the bottom red flower.

These two flowers are simply sewn together afterward.

The crochet language – so impressive!

Gray Mittens

Ok.

The thing is… – I would like to show you this.

See?

Then there’s this I would like you to focus your attention upon.

And – last but not least – there’s this.

Oh… I am sorry… there’s nothing to see in the direction my finger is pointing towards.

What I’m really ‘humbly’ trying to show you are my newly finished mittens.

What am I like?

In fact, I love this pattern.

I love it so much I will probably post a tutorial on it soon…

Oh, have you ever seen a crazier person than me?

Oh my!

Seriously, what is that…?
