Very simple πŸ™‚

Good morning,

How are you today? I’ve been missing you these days…life is running so fast that I have barely time to breathe…

I want to begin this post by thanking you all for your birthday wishes and your sweet words…It was a special birthday this year because of you all my blogland friends πŸ™‚

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

Talking about hearts, I’ve been doing some…

stuffed with lavender…

mmmmh…smelling sooo good that I want to make more and more and hang them everywhere around the house …

I want to show you also this cute handmade cushion I could not resist buying…

Isn’t it lovely with all those tiny buttons and small details ?

and this cute-brown-balls border?

and it has a beautiful sewed quote on it : Life is good, enjoy the little things ! (The title of this post) That is one I should remember always πŸ˜‰

I love having all kind of handmade cushions on my sofas … I have a problem with cushions…I keep making them and buying them πŸ™‚

and the granny blanket you see on the right side of this pic is the one I am crocheting right now (will talk about it in another post πŸ˜‰ )

And finally before leaving you some hooky stuff made this week…

I finished the cover for the round stool to go with the orange cushion and the paintings…

The colors on these pics are a little strange I don’t know why…

But “live” they are warm and happy … I should take other pics when the light is better …

Time to go now… play a little with the girls before lunch time πŸ˜‰

Thank you for your visit today!

Have a great week end!

Good morning lovelies,

How are you today? We’ve got a beautiful Easter here and the girls are still on vacation for a week…They’ll be back to school on the 3d of May and I’ll be back to my normal not-a-full-time-mom life πŸ™‚

This is an old wood stool I’ve had in my garage …

that I decided to bring back to “life” …with some crochet of course…

I used the Ricco creative cotton with a 4mm hook…Perfect for the flowers πŸ™‚

And while I was working with the cotton yarn I decided to finish a cushion I started months ago…The cushion needed 2 more rounds…and a hand stitchΒ  to a fabric one πŸ˜‰

Love when I finish small projects…

It’s been a productive week!! (sigh of happiness πŸ™‚ )

Have a great monday!

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,

Good morning dear readers,

We have in our home two leather stools that we love…and every night, while watching T.V and crocheting (me), working on the laptop (him), we lay our legs on them…but with the years passing by, the stools got teared and aged a little bit so I decided to transform them in my way πŸ˜‰ I’ve made one, mine, to start with…and today I’ll show it to you…

I’ll make the second one when I’ll get more cotton yarns (I do not have enough anymore)


and after:

and this is its border:

I’ve crochet it with Ricco creative cotton.

Made with 32 squares.

For those interested in the pattern of the square I’ll post it next time πŸ™‚

Hope you liked it πŸ™‚

Have a perfect tuesday!
