Mosaic cushion !

Hello !

I’ve been busy yesterday finishing the Mosaic cushion and writing down the graphic of its pattern.

As so many of you asked for it, I did manage some time to draw it for you ! (I could not resist πŸ™‚ )

It is so simple, you will see, you can guess it by just looking at the pics πŸ™‚

But before the graphic, lets have a look to the cushion πŸ™‚ (I adore it)

This pattern is perfect for a baby blanket or another Giant granny πŸ™‚ hehe

and the graphic made with Corel Draw:

A last pic before saying goodbye…

Thank you all again for being here πŸ™‚

Have a lovely day!


P.S: To Julia: I crochet every day sometimes for only 10 minutes sometimes for a couple of hours! It depends πŸ˜‰

New wip

Good morning!

Hope you’re having a fresh Monday start! Autumn is here and the fresh September breeze coming from my window in the morning is delightful πŸ™‚

I’m sooo enjoying my morning today and I’m feeling very happy without any particular reason…I think I love September…September and May are my favorite months…I just love the temperate climate of these two months…not feeling hot and not feeling cold either…

Crochet side, I’ve begin a new cushion to go with my vintage one… A mosaic cushion…

I’m enjoying soo much the making of this cushion that I’m already thinking about a future blanket made with this pattern…

Maybe…one day… πŸ™‚

Do you feel sometimes that you have so much projects in your head that you wish you’ve had 4 hands or days of 48 hours? that’s always happening to me πŸ™‚

althoughΒ  I crochet very fast… so fast sometimes that I feels that my hook exceeds the speed of my brain πŸ˜€ haha

That’s all for today my friend!

Enjoy the coming week and Enjoy September!

See you πŸ˜‰


Vintage cushion!

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ ) … So I transformed it…

Here is the result…

A big vintage cushion πŸ™‚ (60x60cm)


Love it even moreΒ  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 πŸ˜‰ 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 πŸ™‚

Have a wonderful day!


Love@first sight: Tadaaaaa

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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… πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜‰

Hello hello hello!

This post is about the Kaleidoscope border…a simple border to go with the ZiG ZaG joining…

A ZiG ZaGy kind of edging πŸ˜‰ … Here is the graphic chart…( I make the graphics with a software called Corel Draw)

Hope this was clear πŸ™‚

Thank you so much for visiting today!

and thank you for all these lovely messages …I appreciate with all my heart every word you’re leaving here πŸ˜€

Have a very nice Sunday eve!


Well well well, it was such a pleasure reading all your sweet messages on my Kaleidoscope blanket! Thank you thank you ThAnK YoU πŸ™‚

This is as promised, the ZIG ZaG Joining method…

Hope that my explanations will be as clear as possible for you to understand… I apologize for those of you who do not understand graphic patterns…this is my only way to explain crochet 😦 sorryyyyyyyyy 😦

So, let’s have a try, shall we?

To begin this is the graphic pattern of the small square:

and then lets take a look to the ZiG ZaG joining graphic:

The red graphic is for the joining …You have every time to make a double crochet in your first square, 2 chain and another double crochet in the second square in EXACTLY THE SAME PLACE YOU DID THE FIRST ONE IN YOUR FIRST SQUARE !

Once this simple thing is clear all will become very easy to follow… Always always make a dc in the first square, 2 chain followed by another dc in the second square in exactly the same place…

I suggest for you, as a trial,Β  to begin joining 9 squares to make a small blanket of 3×3 squares as in this pic:

You have always to work as follow : Join all the squares of your blanket horizontally (A then B) and after you’ve made all your horizontal joining, you join all your squares vertically (C then D)

This method (joining horizontally everything then vertically) will make the joining very fast…I took some pics to make it clearer for you…

Pic 1: Arrange the colors of your squares as you want them to be in your blanket … I made here 3 rows of 10 squares each (because I have a total of 30 colors )

Pic2: Begin the horizontal joining of row1 with row 2 and then row2 with row3…etc

Pic3: Continue joining row by row horizontally…until all rows are joined horizontally like in Pic4 below

Pic4: After all the rows are joined together horizontally, begin the vertical joining (here in this pic above, one vertical joining is done)

Pic5: All the rows have been joined horizontally and vertically…time to begin the edging πŸ™‚ (which will be explained in my next post πŸ˜‰ )

Hope it was easy to understand…when you just read this post you’ll feel a little bit confused maybe, the best thing to do is to take a hook and some yarn, make 9 small squares and try joining them …

Thank you for visiting today!

Sending you lots of love through this post πŸ™‚


Goooooooooooood moooooorning !

Kaleidoscope is done….after all the joining and the edging stuff I am proud to show it to you in all its glory πŸ˜€

Enjoy …

160 little colorful squares joined with a very easy and beautiful method don’t you think? and it is a very very very fast method….pfffffff…so fast I joined all the squares in two days πŸ™‚

If you’re interested I’ll be very happy to explain it step by step with a graphic πŸ˜‰

and make also a graphic pattern for the two edging rounds …

The blanket measures 130x85cm…It is crocheted with Nako Vizon a 100% acrylic yarn with a 4.5mm crochet hook…

Sarah, my daughter, is in love…. She slept with it yesterday even if it is 36 Celsius degree here (still in a very very hot summer days)

Hope you liked it too πŸ˜‰

Have a colorful day!



Hello Lovelies!

Today I want to share with you a book that holds a special place in my heart…it is on my shelves for quite some time now and I keep checking it day after day … It is the most beautiful decoration book I’ve ever seen (and I am not taking any money for saying that πŸ™‚ hehe )

It is called : “Decorate” and I am sure some of you have heard about it…

It has the most beautiful pics and brilliant decoratingΒ  ideas (don’t know if you love decoration books but they are my favorite πŸ™‚ )

It is the only decorating book that I adore from cover to cover…I’m crazy in love with every single page of it…

I bought it from a local book seller here but you can find it trough amazon here… (I think that the cover has been changed…I just noticed that when I searched for it on amazon to give you the link)

and the author have a lovely blog too… go take a peek (it really really worth a visit)

That’s everything for today…(It’s been quite some times that I wanted to share with you this lovely book , if I could I would shown you all the pages πŸ™‚ )

See you next time for the big tadaaaaa day of my daughter Sarah’s Kaleidoscope blanket…Yes it is almost done (I’m crocheting right now the final border round) and it is, I have to admit, B E A U T I F U L :)) really really…

So, stay tuned πŸ˜‰

Kisses to all!
