crocheted tops and goodbye Chester Bennington ...

 Today I share with all you these crochet tops ...


I did not follow any pattern, I was simply doing tests ...


I improvised with the wooden dummy
I have in my home-made workshop ...


And then it came to mind that if these crochet tops came out well
maybe I could give them to a lovely girl ...


This summer, these crochet tops looks everywhere, right?


They are ideal for young girls who want to go fresh
on the beach or in the pool ...


I have used a 4mm crochet hook and yarn DROPS PARIS ...


Also, to be more sweeter,
I have sewn a 100% cotton fabric on inside ...


The model fell in love with these two crochet tops ...


So, they are for you, Abril!
Thank you very much for being so sweet!
You're a lovely girl!


And thank you so much for participating in this photo shoot!
Moltes gràcies, Abril !!!!!!

No words ... so sad ... these news touch my heart ...
thanks for all your songs, dear Chester Bennington ...
your voice always will accompany me ...
Linkin Park , One the best bands of the history ...
Somewhere I Belong, Crawling, Numd, In The End ...
All of them the best songs ...
You recently dedicated this lovely song One more light
to your beloved friend Chris Cornell ...
You said you did not understand life without him ...
everything is so sad ... but the truth is that life, without friends,
sometimes becomes very difficult ...
You're inseparable, true friends, sharing family stories,
sharing the stage, the same passion for music ...
I can not stop crying watching your latest show in Birmingham ...
Rest in peace, dear Chris Cornell ...
Rest in peace dear Chester Bennington ...
Two more stars in the sky ...

crochet in blue and James - Getting Away With It (All Messed Up)

The holidays finally arrived and I could see my beloved Mediterranean sea ...
it is a blue and clear sea and in some places with turquoise waters ...


It is a sea with beautiful villages of former fishermen ...


With large and small islands, fine sandy beaches,
hidden coves and a lovely bright sun ...


It is a sweet sea for sailboats and for boats
of all sizes that travel through it every day ...


The blue color has invaded our life for a few days ...


I traveled with Carlota on the island of  Menorca
and we have enjoyed this island and this beautiful sea ...


All of these are small projects to enjoy summer and vacation time ...
And you, are you enjoying your holidays
or there still left a few days away?
_____________

I have edited this post while listening to this precious song
of James Great songs are always great songs ...
thanks James for create great songs like this ...




Thank you very much for all your comments ...

If you are in vacation time, I hope you enjoy a lot!
If you still have a few days left for your vacation,
then do not despair that they will soon arrive!

Anyway, good summer!

A big hug!

See you soon!

granny's stripe blanket and first day with sewing machine


A few days ago, I finished my last granny's stripe blanket.
This blanket not for me, it's a work that I make for a coworker ...


... one day she saw my first granny's stripe blanket
and she fell in love instantly ...
You can see it here, in the beginnings of this blog.
I love to make this type of crochet blankets,
you can see a similar blanket here


Since a couple of days that the temperatures descended
and too there have been summer storms,
an ideal time to show you this crochet blanket ...


I love summer storms ... the atmosphere refreshing a little,
and we can enjoy our terrace open air.
We can play better, read tales, make crochet ...


I enjoy my holiday time next to my precious daughter
who does not stop growing ...


She grows up and grows and she is already a small woman ...
the last weeks she has been claiming me the sewing machine
that Santa Claus gave it in last Christmas ...


I promised her that during summer school holidays
she can premiere the sewing machine ... and behold ...
SHE ... happy ... sooooo big ...
for her, there is nothing else in the world
that this precise moment ...


I have no words to express what she felt at that time ...
you can see happiness in her eyes ...
On Tuesday 27 June 2017 it was a great day!

Gràcies Carlota,
per tanta felicitat que em regales cada dia ...

T'estima, la mama

I love reading great poets ...


Thanks for all your words
I hope you've a great summer
full of good times ...

see you soon ....

crochet mandalas, a bag and NEUMAN - Jane

Hello, dear readers! Do you still follow me on the blog?
Lately I do not publish with assiduity,
although I have continued working with the crochet ...


I love to create crocheted mandalas,
it's a crafts that is very nice to do ...


For to make these crochet mandalas
I worked with Drops Paris  and 4mm crochet hook ...


In this crochet mandala I have used only two colors
and I think that is also very beautiful,
what do you think ...?


I love watching these mandalas once they're done!
This color palette is so beautiful ...


I created these mandalas for to apply them on handbags ...


I can say that all the bags that I make last year
they are a great success and everyone who has received them
have liked it a lot, they are a very useful gift!


This week Carlota finished her stage of "Educació Infantil"
and she wanted to give it a gift for the teacher ...


A handbag for transporting school supplies, books, notes ...
an ideal gift for any teacher, do not you think the same?
Carlota's teacher was very happy with this gift! 


On my land this month it was extremely hot,
temperatures around 40ºC ...!!! Still, I was able to finish
the granny blanket that I had yet to finish ...
soon I will show you it here on the blog!
____________________

And to edit this post, today I've been listening to Neuman ...
of all his songs, my favorite is Turn it,
which I already shared a day with you.
But all his works are a delight ... the last ones,
Boystar and All That Matters there is still no video ...
so I share this one, I love this song ... enjoy!

little crochet bags and Robert Miles - Children [Dream Version]


How're you, dear readers? All of you work with your crafts?
I have not posted anything for nearly two months,
but I have not stopped doing my stuff.
I've made some little crochet bags ...


I did these little crochet bags two months ago
but I have not been sufficiently inspired to sew zippers
until this week ...


They are very useful to carry them to the handbag
and thus maintain a certain order ...


And most important: they are light, do not weigh much
and we can make it with different colors ...


These crochet bags can be used to keep school supplies,
also for crochet tools and sewing tools, for makeup,
also for sunglasses ... they are very versatile!


To make these bags I worked with 3mm crochet hook
and yarn COTTON NATURE 2.5, of Hilaturas L.M brand.
You want to see the tutorial?  santapazienzia (here)


Work in progress of granny stripe blanket ...
if I can make crohet a few days,
I will show it soon here on the blog ...


I have also done some sewing works:
here I've repaired these pants for Carlota.
She said me she wanted two hearts with the thread pink ...


Robert Miles, died this week cancer victim.
Thanks Robert, for create one of the best electronic themes ...
Children, published more than 20 years ago
and feel authentic as the first day ...
this song has accompanied me for more than 20 years
and will continue forever with me ...
thank you for being a part of my soundtrack ...
thanks forever, Robert ... good trip to the stars ...



And thanks to you, dear reader,
thanks for your visit.
I wish you a nice weekend

See you soon ...

Cancer is a blight worldwide.
Many families have suffered 
from the disease or have to live
with it daily. It affects rich, poor, children, people of all ages.
Surely you know of any association,
a hospital or any initiative to help.
Make a small donation for research
can save many lives.

placemats with t-shirt yarn and Sia - The Greatest

From time to time we all need stop an activity which we enjoy a lot
for to dedicate ourselves to other things we like ...
or just do nothing and breathe ... 


Me, after a break for some weeks
in the world of crochet, I returned to make crochet
with t-shirt yarn ...


I think I've been two years without working with T-shirt yarn ...
Now I will show you these placemats ...


For breakfast time, for tea time
or for to brighten the table at any time,
do not you think so too ...?


You can guess who is the girl that she has seen these placemats
and she has decided that tomorrow morning her breakfast
is served with pink placemats ...?


I also made some baskets. The advantage of working with crochet XL:
with a couple of hours can finished a crochet work ...



Some baskets like these, or some placemats, all hadmade works
are always a good gift ...



I think soon I will make more placemats and more baskets ...



You know what is the advantage of a pause ...?
We always come back with more inspiration
and head full of projects ...


I love each and every video where it appears this dancer ...
Maddie Ziegler, you're a great artist!
And you Sia, too, of course!



Thanks for walking here, in
my world of wool
And you know, if you want to do a lot of things
is a great way to life ...
but too is well to remember that
occasionally we can take a break and breathe ...

Enjoy the spring, my friends ...
and enjoy the simply and good things of life ...
a big hug ...
