Good morniiiiiiiiing!

Do you remember my wip vintage blanket that I started not long time ago? Well, it turned into a vintage cushion for my formal living ๐Ÿ™‚

It is made with a very thin acrylic yarn and I felt quite impossible to crochet a blanket with this kind of yarn (lazy lazy ๐Ÿ™‚ ) … So I transformed it…

Here is the result…

A big vintage cushion ๐Ÿ™‚ (60x60cm)


Love it even moreย  in my living next to the round granny one…

LOVE it sooo much that I decided to make another cushion just to go with these two…

I’ll show you something next time ๐Ÿ˜‰ Stay tuned!

Before I go I want to thank Grace Ann for the Versatile blogger award! This is very sweet from you Grace Ann! Thank you sooo much!

and thank you all for visiting ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a wonderful day!

Hello lovely people around the globe!

I’m so happy to be with you today and to show you finally my love@first sight blanket ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you remember its first post? I was completely in love then … and after I’ve got a little bit distracted…making other projects…and I left it behind…and then when I was hit by the-finish-all-my-wips fever I decided it was time to tadaaaaa it ๐Ÿ™‚

There it is….

I could not resist offering it to a dear friend of mine who do not crochet and who fall madly in love like myself….Even if it is sometimes very hard to give away a piece that you enjoyed so much crocheting I always think: I can make another for myself… one day… ๐Ÿ™‚

It is now in a beautiful home very very much loved…

Yarn: Nako Vizon (100% acrylic)

Crochet hook: 4mm

Pattern: Here

Hope you’ve fallen in love too ๐Ÿ˜‰

Before I go today I want to give a special thank you to Louise and Wink for giving me the Versatile Blogger Award! It is always a pleasure receiving this kind of gift … Louise and Wink have lovely blogs you must visit! Thanks to both of you! It is the third time I receive this special award… You can read more about it here!

and Thank to all of you for all the sweet comments you left on my Summer Time ripple post ๐Ÿ™‚ I love reading your words and I apologize for not being always able to reply to each and every one ….

Good morning !

I received a while ago an award from a very sweet lady…

Thank you so much Kerry!

Kerry have a wonderful blog…you can visit it here!

So, for the award I have to tell some things about myself…


1-I really really love colors…colors everywhere and specially in homes but it seems like most of the homes I visit are “beige” or “white” and this really annoys me!!

2- My favorite color is: red or purple or orange or yellow or even turquoise …in fact I have plenty of favorite colors ๐Ÿ˜‰ and every week I seem to have a new favorite color ๐Ÿ™‚

3- I love big families…for me the perfect picture of happiness is a big family with 4 or 5 kids dining around a big table laughing and eating with a fire in a cosy fireplace …

4- I’m afraid to death of death ๐Ÿ™‚ In fact this is a real obsession for me…I keep thinking about the day I’ll be dead or somebody I cherish will be gone and I cry and I cry … I don’t know how to face this fact and I keep reading books about it…but no result ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

5- I love simple pleasures of life: sometimes, just sitting in the garden watching the girls playing makes my heart happy happy happy ๐Ÿ™‚

6- I hate to shop clothes…for myself…yes yes yes…I wish I can stay in my jeans and a very large t-shirt for the rest of my life and nobody tells me I have to be “pretty” for the others GRRRRRRR!

7- I live in a country (Lebanon) where everything is fake…specially the women…plastic surgery is the latest fashion…All the women have the same fake nose, the same fake cheeks and the same stretched skin around the eyes…in fact they all looks the same…its dramatic !

8- I hate going to hairdressers…fixing the color and cutting my hair is my nightmare! and this is what I’m making today!!!

9- I love eating a lot, specially sweets and chocolate…and I am constantly beginning diets…just beginning … ๐Ÿ˜€

10- Sometimes I wish to live alone in an island with my children, my husband and my family and of course my crochet and the internetย  and you ๐Ÿ˜‰ …

that’s it my lovelies!

Now I have to pass this on (and this is the hardest part as there is a thousand of lovely blogs I visit and all the blogs are wonderful! really!)

So, voila, I pass this award to:

1- Saritha from http://hooksneedlesandme.blogspot.com/

2- Debi from http://hooksandyarns.blogspot.com/

3- Severine from http://severine56.canalblog.com/

4- Jane from http://hook-and-yarn.blogspot.com/

5- Karen from http://4lilgirls.blogspot.com/

6- Mamzelle Flo from http://fantaisiesdeflo.canalblog.com/

7- Karen from http://www.barefeetandafreespirit.blogspot.com/

8- Linda from http://www.theknitoriousmrsb.blogspot.com/

and Esther from http://happyinred.blogspot.com/

Go have a visit! It is really worth it!

and finally before I go, I have to show you two pics:

It still needs some ironing and framing…but I’m happy with it ๐Ÿ™‚


My “daisies-in-a-square-baby-blanket” wip…

All the squares are done…Still have the joining round and the border…So a “tadaaa” post is coming very soon ๐Ÿ˜‰

Enjoy your week end!

Good morning dear friend,

I may be in a hurry and super concerned about our coming “move” … this did not stop me from beginning a new crochet project I want to share with you today ๐Ÿ™‚

This project holds a special place in my heart and I wanted from a while ago to make it… I fall in love with many pics of it on the net (like here and here and again here) but it was Jacquie from Bunny Mummy who inspired me most of all with hers…(Isn’t it the most wonderful piece of art you’ve ever seen???)ย  Thank you again Jacquie!

So, This is for you my friend the very first pics of my wip Fairy tale blanket…

I’ll make this blanket to cover one of my girls beds…They will fight for sure for it ๐Ÿ™‚I will use 24 different colors for this blanket…

I made small balls of the yarns so I can carry them all together (the 24 colors) wherever I go…

I’ll use one of the baby bags I used to carry diapers, bottles of milk and bibs with it ๐Ÿ™‚

They are very practical … and full of precious memories ๐Ÿ™‚

Before leaving you my friend, I want to thank Clara for the Stylish blogger award I received from her ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so much Clara you made my day with the award and all the sweet comments you left for me today…

This is the second time I receive this award and I am very happy ๐Ÿ™‚ You can find my post about the Stylish blogger award here.

Have a wonderful day everyone and see you soon ๐Ÿ˜‰

Stylish blogger award

Good morning sweet friend,

I am here today to give a big THANK YOU to my friend Teje from Nero’s post and patch for the Stylish blogger award!

It is a real pleasure to receive such a great gift so thank you from the bottom of my heart Teje!

Now I have to tell 7 things about myself and it is so difficult for me ๐Ÿ™‚ … I’ll make 7 resolutions for 2011 instead if it is ok…

Resolution number1: Play more with my girls instead of crocheting when they are playing around…

Resolution number2: Make long walks in the nature…I am blessed to be living in a nature environment with a sunshiny weather 300 days/year so I must enjoy it!

Resolution number 3: Make a diet and loose at least 5 kilos….I think this is the most difficult one ๐Ÿ™‚ but I’ll try ๐Ÿ™‚

Resolution number4: Stop telling what I am thinking to everybody around and be a more secret person because this stupid matter is making me lots of problems sometimes…so Keep my mouth shut instead of being frank and saying what not to say…

Resolution number5: Enjoy the small treasures and gifts of everyday instead of always projecting myself in the future with future projects to make…

Resolution number 6: Try to finish my wip and not begin new things before that. I am allowed to crochet 2 projects at the same time but not more …

Resolution number 7: Improve my poor English and for that practice it here as far as I can ๐Ÿ™‚

Now I want to pass this award to 15 lovely ladies with lovely blogs you must visit:

1- Carina at home

2- Handmadebyfiona

3- Hooks and yarns

4- Frecklepuss

5- Patchconchocolate

6- Creationwest

7- Moniquesplace67

8- Lacrochetnauta

9- Andreaapplesandpears

10- Hakenenmeer

11- Marionsbuntehandarbeitswelt

12- Scottys-place

13- Karenlcase

14- Barefeetandafreespirit

15- Lala-lizzie

16- Mytinkerspace

and I can pass it to a hundred more!!!

On the other hand, I am working on a new pattern I’ll share with you very soon and maybe I’ll post about it tomorrow… So stay tuned ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a wonderful day!

Beautiful blogger award:)

Good morning to you,
I received two days ago the beautiful blogger award from the wonderful Nancy, and it made me very happy:)

Thank you Nancy!

Now I have to tell 10 things that you do not know about me:

1- My favorite color is red.

2- My internet connection is bad most of the time and this stress me a lot and makes me crazy because it offs every time I write a new post like now for example, Grrrrrr!!!

3- I cry too easily and can not hold my tears, this put me in complicated situations like in the cinema for example when the lightsย turns onย at the end of a film or in front of the tv while watching a disney film with my children asking me : why are you crying mummy? and this annoys me a lot!

4- I love to paint, sew, cross stitch, but my passion is crochet ๐Ÿ™‚

5- I met my husband on the internet and I ‘ve been married for 6 years and living a wonderful every day love story

6- Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night to eat chocolate or make a row of crochet…

8- When people ask me whatย is your hobby, I answer : crochet … they look at me in a strange way. Crochet in my country is still for grand mothers and I try every single day to change this stupid matter :D:D

9- I have a sewing machine and every morning I look at her and tell her: next week I am gonna work with you…and leave a little behind mister crochet…and this never happens:)

10- I loveย to blogย and my life changed a lot since I discovered this whole new world ๐Ÿ™‚
