Hello my friend,
I just want to begin this post by thanking every single one of you for all these sweets comments you are leaving on my posts…It is making me really happy reading them:) Thank you again …You bring sunshine to my mornings!
This is the round granny cushion… (not so round i’m afraid…because my sewing skills are still very poor but I’m practicing and practice makes perfect, no? )
But I think it’s cute, don’t you?
Maybe I’ll put the pattern later … when I go back to my-normal-life
And this is my yarns: 30 colors in total (40 new yarns and lot of left overs from previous projects)
I am gonna make a granny monster …yes yes a GRANNY MONSTER to test my crochet patience…
Something really big made with big granny squares: Every granny made with 14 rounds (every round crocheted with a different color:)Yes, I like to change constantly the colors, I am a little bit crazy;) )…
A total of 49 squares (7×7) to cover all our double sized bed…(I’ll show you something next time, I’ve already made 3 squares…and it is looking gorgeous…
So, I have to leave you now and wish you a fantastic week end… (Here we are still in summer and the weather is very hot…)
BIG BIG kisses,

Good morning to you my friend,
Today is a big day! I finished my 3D Flower Blanket and I am very proud of the result! Christina my daughter loved it! She said that it is like a garden in her room and these sweet-5 years old-words make my heart very very happy
Of course I’m gonna show you…yalla
The blanket is made with 42 squares (6×7) and 7 different colors and every square is one of a kind as you can not find two identical squares…
It measures 115×100 cm and the size is ideal for a 5 years girl who wants to put it on her while watching TV during the cold winter nights…
The Yarn used is: Stylecraft special DK
The colors are: Aster 1003, Sherbet 1034, Fondant 1241, Meadow 1065, Lipstick 1246, Saffron 1081 and White
Ordered from this shop.
The crochet hook is a 4mm
I’ve joined together the squares with a white line of dc.and I made another white line of dc before making the final border in red.
You can find the pattern of the square here.
This blanket was a pure pleasure to crochet…
…hope you like it !
Have a beautiful week!
Big big kisses!

Good morning to you all,
I’ve been planning lately in my head a new blanket with 7 yummi colors…
and turning and turning and turning the whole idea with many patterns on my mind etc…
and I was not doing anything about it because I have many projects still working on…
But now, that the romance shawl is done, I still have to finish my country flowers blanket which is 65% done:
and my zigzagy blanket (granny stripes blanket)
which is 65% done also
So, I promised myself to finish one of these two before I even think of beginning a new blanket which will be my “Childhood memories” blanket.
I know, I’m gonna finish the country flowers first, but I could not help myself trying 2 patterns with these beautiful colors.
Aren’t they lovely together?
The first pattern: It is a granny simple one with the 7 colors. The border will be with this red color I adore…and I’ll be mixing the colors differently in each square:
And this is the second pattern: Smaller flower squares. In each square I use 3 of the 7 colors and the white one. Here also the border will be in red.
I think I will make the final border for the whole blanket in white.
So, what do you think? which pattern do you prefer? the first one or the second?
I’m gonna think about it while I’m finishing my country flowers blanket which is becoming bigger and really really nice.
Have a lovely day!
