New Pattern ~ Crochet Baskets


Spring is here! Spring is here!

Well… almost, but for the sake of my mental sanity, I act like it’s here already.

These days I like to dive into the wonderful world of spring projects and spend the sweetest hours thinking about bright colors, sun, flowers and everything that makes this time of year so magical.

As a result of this activity, I present to you these bright and colorful CROCHETED BASKETS.

If you’d like to make them, then I have good news for you… as usual, I’ve put together a big, fat pattern that is packed with photos and useful tips. Just for you to enjoy.

If you are interested, you can find all the details about the pattern in MY SHOP.

Have a wonderful week,

… off to work on something new and colorful

Chocolate Pancake Cake


This is a very healthy dessert with nearly no calories at all.

It’s almost like a tic tac.

Okay, that’s not true… but wouldn’t it be awesome if it was?


You know what?

Around this time of year people often ask me: “Petra, why each year in February you die and then come to life again in March?

And I say to those people: “I dunno, but do you have some chocolate for me?”

That’s exactly what happens. Exactly that.

So yes, it’s chocolate that makes me crawl through the end of winter each year.

Like, for example these chocolate pancakes with lovely whipped cream filling that I had for breakfast today.

Let’s just hope that our door frame will have mercy on me and will still keep me letting out of the flat.

Let’s hope…
