Hello lovelies,

I should now be finishing my fairy tale blanket, but I could not resist beginning two projects…

I promise to you that I’ll have a “tadaa” fairy tale post very soon, very very soon but I have to show you what’s on my creative table right now πŸ˜‰

A rectangle cushion for my living room…crocheted with the leftover Stylecraft special DK yarns…and it turning out lovely…

and…

a new blanket (yes another blanket, I can not stop crocheting blankets πŸ™‚ ) This one I am making it as a gift for a dear friend of mine who’s in love with grannies πŸ™‚

I’m using fresh colors and making the last round of every square with the off-white (very light beige) color…It is turning out beautiful … and I can feel that it will become a lovely blanket…

I am using this yarn for the “grannies love”…It is a 100% acrylic yarn…very soft with beautiful colors…

I’m in love with this Turkish brand πŸ™‚

Thank you for your visit today, It is always a pleasure having you here at Le monde de Sucrette πŸ˜‰

Have a beautiful day!

Good morning sweeties,

I finished doing the border of another blanket of mine … This blanket was made by my mom as a gift on our wedding in 2004 so it is a very loved blanket, mostly used by my husband because it is our biggest blanket so it can cover him entirely when he’s watching TV πŸ™‚ I’ll show it to you today with its new blue border …

Here it is in the living room surrounded by crochet, crochet everywhere πŸ™‚I tried making the border by crocheting grannies with picots and it turned out very nice…

Here it is in all its glory with its new blue border πŸ™‚

I also enjoy showing you the environment where this loved blanket lives…in the living room…my favorite place in the house πŸ™‚

I just love this big room where all the family members love to snuggle under blankets and enjoy little pleasures life is offering πŸ™‚ It just make me smile looking at the pics…

Wanna see what’s on the shelves?…Let’s have a peek shall we? πŸ˜‰

and some close ups…

As you maybe already noticed I love small objects and cats in particular…I have a collection of them and you can see cats everywhere in the house πŸ™‚

and I love this photo frame a gift from my sister πŸ™‚ Remembering warms the heart πŸ™‚

Two more pics of the blanket before leaving you my dear…

I enjoyed soooo much sharing with you these pics, hope you enjoyed them too…

Now I am working on two new wip πŸ˜‰ I’ll leave them as a suprise for you for next time…

Have a beautiful day,

Sucrette

Hello my friend,

This is for you today how I made the tissue box cover…Hope you understand my charts πŸ˜‰ (I use Corel draw to make them, it is a graphic design software)

To begin you have to make a small classic granny square crocheted with 2 rounds with the same color…

and then crochet a second square and join it to the first as you go, like on this pic:

and then you continue making squares and joining them as you go as this pic:

50 granny squares in total joined as you go….choosing randomly the colors πŸ˜‰

That’s it my dear πŸ™‚

You can also decorate your tissue box by crocheting a round of dc and then another round of small shells on the top of your box…

Enjoy!

Thank you all for your visit and your sweet messages here! I really really LOVE reading them,

Have a great sunday πŸ™‚

Good morning sweeties,

and welcome to SPRING, my favorite season πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜‰

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”Β  (I am sure it is not the right word to describe them πŸ˜€ but I am sure you understand what I am talking about πŸ˜‰ )

mmmh beautiful πŸ™‚

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… πŸ˜‰

And now, my lovelies, I’ll leave you with this cute quote on one of my boxes (I love boxes πŸ™‚ all kind of…)

and wish you a perfectly beautiful Tuesday!

Kisses,

Good morning my lovelies,

How’s everything?

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 πŸ™‚ I am so proud of myself and could not resist showing to you πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ and I keep looking at her sitting here in my new craft room and I keep smiling to myself πŸ™‚ (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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ˜‰ before the “studio” is really finished πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

mmmh love when I open this cabinet … and this one too…full of colorful yarns πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ˜€

Hope you enjoyed…

Thank you for your visit and have a wonderful day wherever you are,

Hellooooooooooooooo

How are you today? Here the sun is shining and the weather is super great! It feels like SPRING already πŸ™‚

My fairy tale blanket is 12 rows already and I am so happy with how it is turning…Wanna see?

Mmmmh I just love it :):)

Still have 4 rows to go and the border (my favorite part)

Talking about borders…Do you remember this post about the 7 blankets of my home? Well, actually, I stopped for a few days now my fairy tale blanket and I am crocheting a border for the first 3 blankets in this post…Yes I have 3 old blankets without borders and I can not stand anymore looking at them without a proper border… It is like there is something huge missing to them 😦 So I decided to crochet a beautiful border to each one of them… A beautiful and “unique” special border to each…and I started with blanket #2 the stripes…

I will show you, of course, pics of before and after for every blanket…

and now, I shall leave you with a last pic of fairy tale…which became now a big lovely square…

Have a wonderful day,

and see you very soon πŸ˜‰

Good morning ladies,

It’s been a while and I really really missed being here with you all… I missed plenty of beautiful projects posted here when I was away but I will very soon check up on everything and I am sure there is gorgeous missed crochet projects to admire and love …

I am actually slowly working on my fairy tale blanket which I’ll show you next time but today I want to share with you some corners of my new home πŸ™‚ which I am slowly decorating with old items and some new… I have plenty of cushions, crocheted projects for the kitchen shelves, hotpads etc to crochet and I am so happy to be busy for at least a whole year (and maybe more πŸ™‚ ) crocheting … just crocheting and dreaming about more crochet to come πŸ™‚ Youpyyyyyyy!

This is, first,the small living room (where the girls play and watch T.V) (and we have another bigger living room with a fireplace which I’ll show you in another post)

I love this red sofa. It is a deep red (my favorite color), but in these pics it is orange I don’t know why …

See how the crocheted items gives the whole room a lovely and warm look…

and next, the sleeping room of the girls…painted in pink…

There is two separate beds but I put the two together as the girls love to sleep close to each other πŸ™‚

The crocheted bed covers are made by my mom and grand mother when I was pregnant with my second baby Sarah…They are colorful grannies with the last two rows of every square in light and then dark pink…I love them ! Thank you again mom and grandma for these priceless blankets I’ll cherish forever…

The framed pics above the beds are all cross stitched pics made by myself when I was pregnant …

See how patient I was? hehe

Not anymore…Now it is impossible for me to concentrate on a cross stitch project even if it is a very small one… Am I getting old? πŸ˜€

and finally these are the curtains of my girls bedroom…

A flowered curtains… My dream when I was a little girl πŸ™‚

Hope you enjoyed these little corners of my home …It is such a pleasure to share them with you …

Thank you all for being here with me and for leaving such sweet messages…

Have a lovely week end my friend,

Kisses,

Sucrette

P.S: About the software I use to draw my patterns: It is “Corel draw” a graphic design software.

And for Marjo, who asked for the symbols in Dutch…I am very very sorry but I do not know a single word in Dutch 😦

Sorry again Marjo… for not being able to help…
