crochet headbands, crochet cowl, #canvidemans2017 and Pau Casals: Song of the Birds


For long time ago I not make headbands,
but recently I have make all these ...


A few years ago, I made some headbands
but now those all headbands are small for Carlota ...


This time I have decorated them with wooden buttons ...


These wooden buttons that have distracted my mind lately
by using them to make bracelets,
are also perfect for these headbands, right?


And if you ask to Carlota or her friends
her favorite color, what will be the answer ... ?


And as the cold comes and too the autumn days,
now it's a perfect crochet time. And this week
I have made this crocheted cowl.
A perfect gift for a birthday ...

  
And I have already received my gift from #canvidemans2017
in which I have participated. It was a big surprise!
and everything is so beautiful!


The person who sent me this beautiful gift is Teresa,
you can see all the beautiful things that she does
on Instagram @unxicdecoses


All made with love ...


Beautiful wrapping ...


Ideal handbags for crochet tools ...


Three skeins of wool ...


And all these beautiful buttons ...


MOLTES GRÀCIES, TERESA!!!!
M'HA ENCANTAT EL TEU CANVI DE MANS!


These days my country is suffering a very big repression ...
a repression against fundamental rights ...
simply, we want to vote ...


I wish that with these fun head bands
and with a little touch of pink color
I can make happy some girls and moms,
with these very sad moments which my little country,
Catalonia, is living these days ...

A big hug, dear readers ...
I'm a Catalan woman ...
 And I love democracy ...


Thank you very much for visiting
my world of wool ...

bracelets and back to school

Making bracelets is a perfect craft for relaxing my mind
and a nice gift for our friends ...


With this autumn time and with some rainy days
the snails have already out here ...


This is a land of apples' ans snail's ...


And today here is the back to school ...


Carlota no longer uses a school robe, but my nephew
did need a few school robes and school bags for him ...


Today Carlota go a great step!
She start first grade of primary school ...
This summer he left over two teeth and "Ratoncito Pérez" 
has already visited us with some gifts for Carlota ...
she is a girl who is growing so fast ...

Desitjo que tinguis un bonic curs, Carlota!
T'estimo més enllà de l'infinit!

crochet shawl for #canvidemans2017


I like to do crochet shawls, with the granny stitch,
as it happens to me when I make the crochet blankets,
it's a very relaxing craft and that distracts a lot the mind ...


This crocheted shawl is made with yarn Stylecraft Special DK
and I used 4mm crochet hook. It is perfect and warm for the winter!


The last days have already been a bit cold
and the weather is almost autumnal, this has been perfect,
an ideal time to spend a few hours with the crochet hook ... 


I made this shawl for participate in the second change of hands
( #canvidemans2017 ) organized by Alícia, from enganxetada ( here )
Moltes gràcies, Alícia, per convidar-me a participar!


 For those who do not know of this topic is,
it is an exchange of handmade things.
You know who person you does make the gift,
but you do not know who person will make the gift for you.
Always are handmade things plus some surprise ...
Very pretty and original idea, right?


In a few days a person will receive a surprise at her house ...
for whom is this shawl be? it's a surprise! it's a secret!


A very big hug, dear readers ...
And many thanks for your messages, many of them private,
messages of peace and love for my country ...
very sad days for the latest attacks
in Barcelona and Cambrils ... thanks ...

And thanks for visiting my world of wool ... 

Many kisses and many hugs
for all the sweet and good people
who live in this world ...

see you soon ...

no words ...

NO WORDS ...


Life goes on ...
full of love ... full of friendship ... full of beautiful things ...
the best gift, the children ... With her joy and her desire to live ...


My lovely daughter has already celebrated her 6 years old!
MOLTES FELICITATS CARLOTA!!!!


She chose the color she wanted for each letter and for the number 6.
And I'm so happy to sew for my sweet little girl ...
but on the birthday day ... she not want to wear it! hahaha!!!


And a great friend gave her this beautiful backpack ...
it's beautiful and it's so well made! We love it!
Thank you very much, my friend!


You can see the beautiful things that my friend make
on her Instagram @qxi.cat
Gràcies per estar sempre aquí, amiga meva ...


One of my memories of when I was little
is the memory of playing with my mother's buttons box ...


I remember that I loved to empty  the box and play with the buttons ...


Carlota also loves to play with the mom things ...
and this summer we spend many time doing bracelets ...


For his birthday I gave him this cash register.
She loves to play and open her own supermarket!
With so many days of school holidays, we have to find fun tasks,
at this supermarket every morning there are queues of princesses,
playmobiles, dolls ... Carlota is selling everything!
Chromos, mosquito repellent creams, bracelets, fruit, clothes ...
a great supermarket!


And she always in my photo shoots!
she is my partner, my assistant, my dear daughter ...
T'estimo fins a l'infinit, Carlota!




In a world where sometimes seems to be only terror,
it's necessary to be able to distract the head
and create beautiful things to make people happy ...


Sometimes just with a small detail can rejoice the day ...


I believe in the good people ...


And we have to fill the world of beautiful things,
now more than ever ...





Life goes on, ALWAYS ...
the hatred, the terrorism, the evil ...
all this NEVER will win ...
My condolences to all the victims,
family and friends of the victims ...
Barcelona, Cambrils, London, Paris ...
We want Peace in the World ...
We want to live in a world without wars ...
stop terrorism
