mandalas and our trip in Ponts


One day my sister told me that she wanted to make a gift
to some teachers who are co-workers ...


After some days thinking what I could do,
I start these crochet mandalas ... 


These mandalas are made with yarn Drops Paris
and 4mm crochet hook ...


Pattern very easy:
magic ring, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, ...
And in edging ... the waves! again waves!
Because as you know ... I love it ...


And after very long time I sewed with my sewing machine.
A craft and a pleasure that I love experiencing more days ... 


But I'm a little disastrous ... and one day, while I was cutting fabric,
I also cut my finger! Luckily, this pain is not pain
because I made these things with pleasure! hahahaha!


In the next post you will see the things that I have done
for the co-workers of my sister. I'm about ready to finish ....


And a few days ago we made a trip outdoor and we visited


Do something different outdoors is very rewarding for children
and Carlota was very happy this day to going up and down
playing with the stones, nature, wind and see the mountains ... 


Before going to the mountain she said she wanted reap some flowers
to make a bouquet to her grandmother ...


Although the thing that she remembered most of this trip was...
this black beetle!!!! I love to see how discovers the world ...


For Carlota the most important is not the monument ...
for she, the most important is see ants, beetles, ladybugs
and all possible critters ...


Nature, culture, history, happiness next to my daughter ...
Our country is small but full of beautiful things ...


I like to share with you these things that make me so happy ... 

Many thanks for all your kind comments
and for take your time here in
my world of wool

see you soon!

crochet shawl and our flowers and plants

This week is becoming rainiest. And today is a perfect day
for to show you a new crochet work, a new shawl.
I enjoyed a lot making the last crochet shawl
and it is for this that I have worked it in the same way ...


To make this crochet shawl I have worked with yarn
Natura Just Cotton of DMC . Here I worked simultaneously
with two skeins and 6mm crochet hook.


 For the edging I have worked with 4mm crochet hook
and, as always, I made these waves ...
I love the waves for the edging ...


These Shawls with this pattern look very good, right?
I think I'll do a lot more ...


You can see this pattern here.


One more time, thanks Elaine Phillips for sharing!


And I'm very happy with my wooden tags!
They are perfect for my crochet works
and they look too very well! I love it!


You like the crochet shawls?
I think that they are perfect for rainy days like today,
do not you think?


Yesterday I take it some photos on the terrace ...
our little garden grows every day ... 


the succulents and red flowers ...


even in cloudy days our garden has charm ...


a small flower to burst and raindrops that seem crystal ...


This year one hydrangea was dead and for the moment
other hydrangea has only one flower ... 


For many years these plants have dressed our terrace
and this make me happy ...



And on my last Ikea trip I bought these fabrics.
I'm impatient to sew and create new things ...


And many thanks for your nice comments about school camp ...
Carlota has enjoyed the experience and was very happy
with the bus, the games, the stars, the tales, the berths,
the forest, the medicinal plants, princes and princesses ...
I think that she wants repeat next year!

A big hug for all!
Thanks for coming here in
my world of wool

thaaaaaaaaaaaanks ............

Lately I have not done much crocheting,
I've got some projects in hands but for now I can not finish ...
The creative intensity has diminished
but I've something for to do from time to time ...


And I received my share of exchange organized
by Alícia (here) (#canvidemans)  Comes from Mallorca!!!
Many thanks Susanna!!! I love this beautiful bag!


And now it's time to enjoy the terrace and I have also done
some landscaping work. Surprisingly this year the calla lily
( Zantedeschia ) has many flowers ...


I can spent hours on the terrace watching every little miracle ...
Nature never ceases to amaze me ...


As always my little one daughter want to help me ...


she is so happy when plays with water!


 This is the first night that has left home to go to school camps ...
two days and one night without contact with family ...
how spent the night ??? she not want to take bunny Lulo ...
she left him in the car convinced saying
"I do not want, mama! I'm a big girl!"


My little girl is ever-growing and it is hard, very hard,
but I must learn to let go to fly ... this afternoon when we meet again
I know that I will embrace it more strong than ever ....

My little one ... love you so much ...

crochet shawl and Anni B Sweet - Chasing Illusions

Spring is here and with this lovely sun
I stop to make blankets and crocheted hats.
So today I show you my first spring work ...


This is a crochet shawl made with Natura Just Cotton of DMC
This yarn brand is ideal for creating garments for summer.
It's so sweet and soft! Here I have worked with 6mm crochet hook
and I'm working with two skeins simultaneously ...


For my birthday a friend give me this beautiful bag for crocheting.
And it is very useful for this project! I think that this spring
and summer I will work a lot with this bag ... I love it sooooo!


As you can see the shades are soft inside this crochet shawl.
It is for this that to give a bit of light of this crocheted project
I decided to do the edging with bright colors ...


And for the edging as always my favourite waves!
I made it with 4mm crochet hook and I worked
with two diferents skeins, purple and pink ...


This crochet shawl is very easy to make
and I made others than you can see in my blog.
If you want you can see my others shawls
the first here , the second here and third here


And some days ago I have made some gardening works.
And one more time I have seen that my little succulents
are very strong because they survive another winter ...


This crochet shawl is ideal for walking in the summers nights.
Made with 100% cotton yarn and made with lots of love
for to give a friend who lives a bit far ...


My friend can worn the crochet shawl as she want.
And you, how you prefer dress the shawls?

granny stripe blanket and crochet hats

Today has rained a bit and freshened the atmosphere
and I think it is better to show you my new granny stripe blanket
on a rainy day than on a sunny day, right? Come on!


 This granny stripe blanket is for to welcome
a beautiful baby who was born recently.


One more time a blanket with the granny stitch.
I love this easy pattern!


Here I've worked with 4mm crochet hook
and with four colours of Stylecraft Special DK.


 This granny stripe blanket has a set of two crochet hats,
one for this lovely baby and one for his big brother.
The crochet hats are made with 6mm crochet hook and
I've worked with two skeins of yarn.


I wanted one blanket colorful funny for children. You like it?


And I think my new wooden tags looks very well in all of my works ...


I dont know because I had not done  before these beautiful wooden tags.
But it is this ... go progress and improve every day ...


 The colored stripes are more big than the others blankets
that I've made before. Here I've done six lines with each color ...


I wish that these brothers will love these hats and this crochet blanket.


Hope you have a nice day and happy crocheting!
Many thanks for all your lovely comments in my last post ...

See you soon here, in
my world of wool
