Hope you’re having a wonderful monday morning with a nice cup of coffee!
One week ago I saw this beautiful pic somewhere on the net… a beautiful pic without a link or a source…and I fall….madly deeply in love with it….I saved it on my laptop …Here it is…
Does any of you know the source of this pic?
So, my friend, I fall madly and deeply and crazy in love with the blanket of course…I could not take out my eyes of this beauty…all these colors and this black border…can you resist?
and of course, as you already guessed…I started…I started trying to crochet something similar to this wonderful piece…Mmmmh…it was a pleasure trying to figure out the pattern by just looking at this pic….and I made it after many many trials
yes yes yes…
I am very happy
and so in love….
I stopped all my wip and I am not crocheting anything else since …
That’s what we call: Love at first sight…Yes it is crochet-love-at-first-sight…wondering if you can understand this kind of feeling for a project ? when you can not at all concentrate on something else…and you leave all behind for this particular new wip…
I even already draw the graphic pattern for you… my own version on Corel draw with a sucrette’s technique to work fast and use all the colors equitably (Thank you google translate :)) (I’ll post it next time )
But I need a name for this blanket and I need your suggestions… Do you have any idea what should I name it? Is “love at first sight” a good one? waiting for your advice…
Finally, a close up of the flowers on my table…and some pics of my paintings and my studio before I go…
Talking about my paintings: It is not something “huge” I am very proud of…but it is something I take pleasure making … and that’s what counts finally, no?
I’ll leave you now with a last pic of these adorable small watering cans on my shelves…
Thank you for your visit,
Have a beautiful monday!

Good morning sweeties,
and welcome to SPRING, my favorite season
Here is my very very first crocheted blanket made in 2007 but made without a border… (You can read more about it in this previous post)
and here it is with all its glory with a new shining 2011 yellow border
Yes, I decided, after 4 years to make a proper border for all my home blankets and they are three…Here is the first one done…will make the 2 others later
It is a very simple border but it makes all the difference…don’t you think?
I am so in love with these two “candle holders” (I am sure it is not the right word to describe them but I am sure you understand what I am talking about )
One last pic of my stripes blanket…
And now I am working on a new small project…for the living room…
I’ll not tell you what it is…I’ll let you guess…
and I’ll show it to you “done” next time…
And now, my lovelies, I’ll leave you with this cute quote on one of my boxes (I love boxes all kind of…)
and wish you a perfectly beautiful Tuesday!

Good morning my lovelies,
Yesterday, was a big day for me, as I used my sewing machine again after a really long time period and I made something on my own without any help I am so proud of myself and could not resist showing to you
Here it is: Beba the bear…
I sew Beba using small pieces of leftover fabric …and I enjoyed a lot making her…
Even if she’s not perfect, I am very happy with the result and I keep looking at her sitting here in my new craft room and I keep smiling to myself (crazy woman)
Now, I can sew and paint as I have my very own craft room …yes…a small craft room for me and only me I painted it in soft apple green with one wall in red ….
Wanna see some pics? I’ll show you some pics and leave other for another post as I still need to add some shelf and some other details before the “studio” is really finished
First I have a white cabinet…wanna see what’s inside? Let’s open it right now…Tadaaaaaaaaaa
I folded the pieces of fabric and I arranged them nicely… hoping that they will stay like this for a while
mmmh love when I open this cabinet … and this one too…full of colorful yarns miammmm
and here we have a corner for painting stuff…in a small wood closet
I am so excited to paint again …
Hey! Beba! What are you doing up there? enjoying the new craft room eh?
That’s all lovely people
Hope you enjoyed…
Thank you for your visit and have a wonderful day wherever you are,
