The Holiday

We went for a short holiday a couple of days ago.


There was a lot of water.

There was a motor boat.

There was a lot of nice food.

And most of all, there was a lot of laughter, relax and great time.

Oh, and there was a lizard, too…


Here are some moments that I captured to share with you:

Granny Square Purse

Here it is.

Last time I showed you these squares.

They were so much fun to make.

You can find the tutorial here.

After I finished the squares (and stared at them lovingly for about three hours) I went on and crocheted them together to make two panels.

One panel has more yellow in it, the other one has more green tones.

AND, I’ve found out that by crocheting things together I can make the seams look so much neater.

Love that.

The last thing I made was a long strip that I used to join the panels with.

And again, I connected the panels and the strip by crocheting them together.

That’s a good thing to do.

There’s one more ‘last thing’.

The really last thing that I am considering to do with this bag is to line it with fabric.

And here’s where I’d like to ask you, dear skillful crafters out there: Have you ever done that?

(I mean lining a bag with fabric.)

And have you ever done that by hand?

(I mean lining a bag with fabric.)

What do you think?

Is that and easy job to do?

And thanks.

I like the pattern.

And the colors, too.

This might be my most favorite one.

I love all shades of gray.

For some reason.

Cute, cute, cute.



It’s totally in the genes.

With me it’s mostly slippers and purses that I feel this strange need to produce in dozens. My Mom, on the other hand, makes cap after cap after sweater after cap after sweater… after cap.

I love her.


Hey, guys! Do you also have an obsession that runs in your family and you love it?

I need to know…
