before Christmas arrival ... and The Cure - Just Like Heaven


Today, after several days of sick bronchitis,
I can say that I feel a little better ...
And I am happy of being able to show you some crochet works ...
we approach Christmas and will have prepare some gifts ...


I wanted to do some work with black and gray colors.
I feel better with darker colors and I needed
some gifts with these two colors ...


I've done two black hats, two black cowls and a gray cowl.
These hats are made with a different pattern, and
I improvise reminding some hats that I had done previously.


 And the crochet cowls are made with a stitch
with which I already worked last winter ...


These wooden labels are irressitibles, right?
Here I am working simultaneously with two skeins of wool
Stylecraft Special DK and 6mm crochet hook.


I still have many things to do before arrival Christmas!
I will gradually showing you here on the blog ... 


A week ago The Cure acted in Barcelona ...
people say that the concert lasted three hours ...
people say it was brutal ...
people says that Robert give her heart and soul in the concert ...
the lucky ones who were in this concert  say all this ...
and I, all week listening to hymns in my home ...
Lullaby, Close to me, Trust, Why can't I Be You? , Lovesong ...
but in short ... in all the years of my youth and all the days of my life,
my favorite will always be Just Like Heaven ...
a thousand times it resonating in my home these days ...
thanks for being part of my world ...
to infinity, thanks for all these beautiful songs ...


And thanks all for following me here, for your sweet comments,

handbags and Neil Halstead - Hey Daydreamer

Hi, my dears! Now I still show you these handbags
that I've been doing lately. Although I'm not known for sewing theme
I think that these bags looks very well. What do you think?


You remember that to do the  handbag
I followed the video tutorial of Chita Lou
and to do the vanity case I followed
the tutorial of santapazienzia


To do these other two small bags I have not followed any tutorial,
I made a pattern free from my world of wool. As you can see,
I like to combine these handbags with another crochet bag ...


The handbags are always useful, right?
and it is always a gift that everyone loves much.
These bags may will be more well for spring and summer,
but I not finalized until a few days ago ...


I'm currently working with other crochet projects
that I'll show you soon here in
my world of wool


To edit the post today I have been hearing wonderful voice
of this great artist, Neil Halstead
He has a beautiful songs like Tied to You, Digging Shelters,
Full Moon Rising ... hope you enjoy ...



In this land of the Mist is a joy enjoy sunny day like today!

Thanks a lot for your visit

by means of email or a message here below.

more crochet mandalas and Joana Serrat - Cloudy Heart feat. Neil Halstead

Make mandalas is a creative craft and relaxing,
but it is the same feel in all crochet works, right?
choose colors, choosing the mandala shape we want ...
although I'm very a monotonous in this sense
and always I use the same pattern ...


 And I am happy to see that a succulent plant of my garden
which was about to die, it survived and I have made the spread and
also go very well. Now I have new small jewels to care ...


To make these mandalas I worked with 4mm crochet hook
and wool DROPS PARIS. I started with a magical ring,
after I made 12 dc, 24 dc, 36 dc ... Increasing 12dc
in every round, here I completed eight colorful rounds.
Finally, I finish with waves ( US crochet terms )


You see! Two new mandalas to brighten a new home.
And a simple detail. I like wrapping gifts.
But with very simple way ...


I like simple things ...

The little things in life are the best. Enjoys every moment
and the people who loves you ... every day some people die near us,
many of them cancer victims.
Surely you have near you some association
dedicated to helping other people.
Solidarity is easy and expense very little.
Here you have a link if you want to consult.

And she is a natural and sweet singer that has me in love
with their beautiful songs ... Joana Serrat
always is a delight listen this great woman ...
If I liked the album Dear Great Canyon, the latter
Cross the Verge is a delight from the first to the last song ...
Saskatoon, Lonely heart Reverb, Desert Valley ...


Many thanks for being here in
my world of wool

I still have many things to share with you.
Very soon  here in the blog more sewing and crocheting works

Thank you for your sweet comments,
you make me always happy

handbags and León Benavente - La Ribera

Well, finally today I can show two handbags
that I've made with some mandalas.
A handbag with some autumn shades
and other with some Mediterran shades ...


 I do not know sewing a lot and I was very worried
because these two handbags are gifts for two girls
who they sew very well ... 


These hanbags have arrived at their destination
and my friends say that they liked so much
these gifts! I'm very, very happy!


To make these handbags I followed Sylvia's tutorial,
you can see her blog Chita Lou (here)
A great blog to learn to sew!
Muchas gracias, Sylvia!


The vanity cases that I showed in the previous post,
are made with a tutorial of santapazienzia.com (here)
Muchas gracias, Estefanía!


I make a lot of sewing mistakes.
I learn with practicing.
I look video tutorials. Do not be afraid
of making mistakes ...


The most important thing is to lose their fear
of the sewing machine and practice.
Practice a lot of hours ...

León Benavente  I discover two years ago with the songs
Ánimo valiente, Estado provisionalSer brigada ...

vanity cases and Neuman - Turn it

Hello my friends! how're you?
I've been a month without posting anything here on the blog ...
the truth, I've worked a lot and I have many crafts to show you.
Today I will share here my last vanity cases.
To make these vanity cases I have followed the tutorial of
santapazienzia.com (here)  Gracias Estefanía!


For a long time that I not sewed zippers  and I know
they could be better made ... I have to practice sewing more days!
Here I've worked with DROPS PARIS and 4mm crochet hook.


This month I have sewed few hand bags that I will show you
very soon here on the blog. After days without sewing,
is for this that I've a lot of reasons to clean my tools
and my sewing corner. I like to have things tidy.
You want to see where I keep my spools of thread ...? 
In this box of tea bags! for me it is perfect!


And in the last spring I bought this cupboard
and has been very useful for my wool, I kept in boxes before ...


Now I see the inspiration every time I step in front ...


I like to crochet everywhere but photo shoots, editing posts for the blog
and put my ideas in order,  almost happens up here ...


This is my heaven. Here I have the morning light, too the afternoon light,
a beautiful natural light and a beautiful sun every month of the year ...


Behind these curtains, my garden/terrace that you can see here many times,
full of trees and plants, with my read bench, my bench of crochet,
my bench for contemplating the sky, clouds movement,
my bench for to see how grow my plants ...
definitely, is my reflection bench!
_____________________

And with my inspiration always a soundtrack ...
I never get tired of listening to this beautiful song
and this sensational band, Neuman ...
they created a lot of great songs for this world:
If, Jane, My dad, Tell You ... hope you enjoy!



Thousands of thanks for who read me here yet!

You know too we can follow me on Pinterest and Instagram

See you soon, dear readers and followers

I wish you days full of crafts and creativity!

bye! bye!

crochet works and Love of Lesbian - El poeta Halley (Lyric Video)

This week the autumn arrives
and every day is more pleasant to practice crochet.
I love month March because it means the arrival of spring
and it's a beautiful month ... But too I love September ...
Some days ago I made this mandala of sea color, sky colour,
perhaps like a some clouds color ...
some Mediterranean essence in these last summer days ...


Blogs are increasingly abandoned in favor of Instagram ...
Sometimes I think that maybe leave the blog
and I continue only with Instagram ...
but here I learn a bit of english ... and It served me
as note of crochet works I do ... I doubt ...


I discover so beautiful things Instagram! there I found @mitxoko,
which was doing a dressing case with a pattern santapazienzia.com
I started doing a dressing case and for now I have made a few ...


Here I worked with yarn Drops Paris and 4mm crochet hook.
I'm now in the process of sewing: zippers and interior fabric.
I thought It will be combine very well with the handbags
that I would sew in the next days ...


And as always, when I make mandalas I have a thought for Marinke ...
If you do not know the story of this girl can know more about she
here: Marinke


And I have made these hats, with wool Stylecraft DK,
 and I have worked with 6mm crochet hook and
with two skeins of wool simultaneously.
And I show you another lovely succulent of my garden ...


Love of Lesbian
Her latest album is a delight ... I love all songs ...
Bajo el Volcan, Cuando no me ves, Planeador ...
but this song is a work of art ...
The poem that reads the great Joan Manuel Serrat
in the end of the song  is of a indescribable beauty ...
listen to the end ... This song talks about the inspiration,
because sometimes fails ... but here has emerged art ...
each verse is a poem ... hope you enjoy ...
amazing ... stunning ... magic ...




without words ...

nothing to say ...

good night ...
