crocheted cowl and mittens for me and Robin Schulz - Sun Goes Down feat. Jasmine Thompson

Today I have finished a crochet cowl and mittens for me.
I love the result! and I am eager to show it to you!
Come on!


A set of crochet very happy, for the last days of winter cold
and cheerfull for to receive soon month March,
my favorite month!


Again I used the granny stitch, this time a line for each color.
The mittens this time are shorter than the other crochet works I've done.


I have worked with 4mm hook and yarn Sylecraft Special DK.


And for do not be tempted to give away,
which causes then  never I do not have anything handmade for me ...
today I have won me this precious crocheted set!


And yesterday was a perfect day
to go see the sea and I met with a good friend.
What nice day, my dear friend ... Perfect!
One day full energy and a good day for enjoy my little one.
She would be always in the beach in Cambrils ...
So ... we we go!


Practiced launching stones again and again and again ...
always she finds a stone that she must take the stone and throw it ...
she loooooooooooooove it!


She enjoyed playing with the sand.
And we found a little treasure!
We invented the story ... Once upon a time ...
a boat and a dish very nice it fell into the water ...
and the dish broke and went to the seabed ...
and the waves brought a little piece of dish on the beach ...
we love inventing stories!


I like sunsets. Always. In the sea. In the field.
At home. When I drive the car ... When I'm walking
and playing with my daughter ... I love sunsets ...
And are ideal for to take photos ...

Fine weather coming soon ,
wakes me creativity and desire to do things.
A little sun and my instinct to leave each day
to see the plants on the terrace ...
after the snowfall still have survived some of the smaller ...



Today I could not resist to do some gardening and pruning the hydrangeas ...
I'll see if I'm lucky and blooms as much as last year!
I cut the leaves lily, do not know if I've done well ...
but they were severely damaged by the snow ...
I think there will be no any problem ...
_____________________

And the song that fills me with energy these days ...
Jasmine Thompson 's voice and Robin Schulz music ...
Sun Goes Down ...
a sunset shared with friends ...
a perfect moment!



Have a nice weekend and happy crocheting,
my friends! Thanks for being here!

Kisses to you all!

new set of mittens and crochet cowl

Although the days are not so cold is still winter time
and this is nice  to create warm and soft accessories.
As this new set of mittens and crochet cowl ...


The crocheted cowl was brown and it looked sad,
so I added the pink and purple to brighten a bit.
The mittens I wanted to make them different, and why not?


I have worked with 4mm crochet hook and yarn Stylcraft Special DK


As you have been able to verify this winter my blog
is full of  basketweave stitch ....
is incredible the softness and fluffiness that gives this stitch!


To make the initial part in mittens I worked one double crochet in front
and one double crochet  on behind. It is the first time I do.
The idea came to me one day I'm  thinking with the
basketweave stitch. 


I am very happy with the outcome and
I am happy because that is a gift for a friend.
I hope she like it ...

Many thanks to you for visit me in
my world of wool ...
thanks for your lovely comments, thanks for your emails ....

I wish you have a nice week full of creativity and beautiful things!

kisses to you all my dear readers and followers!

crocheted hat for me and Sia - Elastic Heart - Chandelier

 Finally, I have a crochet hat for me.
This is ideal for those cold polar days. 
 Here is my winter hat. Pink and cream.


 This time I have worked with 5mm crochet hook and yarn
Stylecraft Special Chunky. I like chunky wool for  hats.


And I doubt: I make or not I make a pom pom for the crocheted hat?
Well...  I asked my daughter ... And she told me: mama yes!
But I like to go unnoticed ....
and this will be difficult with a pom pom so great!
______________

Like when a movie touched me in my heart, that is the impression  ...
Has happened with these two songs and their videos.
Surely you've already seen, have millions of hits.
The dancer  Maddie Ziegler  an incredible artist.
Very young and very talented. No words.


A few days ago that never stops ringing these two songs of Sia
And I am impressed by the work of Shia LaBeouf
I would give an Oscar for his great performance. No words.
I can not say anything more. Listen again and again ....
and again .... and again .....


I think that I'm fortunate to be able to see where art ...
in a video, a performance, a film, a poetry...
the crochet is my small contribution to create nice things ...
or not beautiful for someone ... but yes for me ...
there are so many ways to express art ...
I think that humanity could no longer live without the art,
without music, without books, without movies ... 
what do you think ...?

Be happy, dear readers ...
and I hope you create many beautiful things ...
kisses to you all ...

A super hero always need gloves and hat super hero.

My nephew liked it a lot, especially the fingerless gloves!
Mission accomplished!

And someone for the first time in his life,
has experienced snow ....


Carlota was really happy with the snow ...
When she woke up I said: something happens today that you've never met.
And she says: the Magi? brought a sewing machine? I died laughing ...
No! No! something veeeery nice. And she said with eyes open: Lacasitos?
Hahahaha! See my little one happy makes me very happy ....
The snow has already melted almost everywhere ...
Now I wait spring ... and all days I see grow my little ...
very fast ... yes ...

crochet cushions and ANNI B SWEET - MOTORWAY

 One day I to decide to take small pieces of wool.
And I make granny squares.
And then I think: it could become cushions?
the creative process is underway ...


Although I was worked first crochet and then I sewed the fabric for the cover .....


Next time I'll do it in reverse, because I had to undo
some crocheted rounds because they exceeded from the fabric ......


Two crochet cushions and with the same finish
turquoise, pink and finally white ...  What  you prefer ...?

  
One pillowcase measures 40 x 40 centímeters
and other pillowcase measures 50 x 42 centimeters ...


Particularly I have to say that I like more the cushion crocheted white.
I have worked with 4mm crochet hook and Stylecradt Special DK.


You remember my granny stripe blanket ...?
I think that even today is my favorite crochet work!
is so cheerful and colorful ...


I wish life was pink and turquoise ...
and green and colorful like these photos ...
but some days  are gray ....

two skirts

Hello, dear readers. How are you? 
January has been productive? you made crochet?
have sewn something? you made some crafts? 
For many days I not have time to do crochet ....
Last week I worked with my sewing machine ...


Among other things, I made two skirts for my little one
that I want to show you today.


A brown velveteen skirt 
and a pink skirt, with a sweet  fabric.


My daughter is in love with their skirts!
and I'm in love of her!


Both skirts are made with the same pattern,
taken from the book of sewing that I bought a few days back.


First I made the skirt brown. I think that I took about 3 hours time ...
the second skirt, pink, I only took 1 hour ...
The experience and practice help a lot! hahahaha!


These are my first two skirts.
I now know how to do it almost without looking at the book,
I think this spring Carlota will have many skirts!

Thank you for your visit.  Now I'm going to do crocheted a while ...
Oh, some days ago I have  glasses for reading, for computer,
for crochet and for sewing. Glasses for presbyopia.
Now I see much better my world of wool
and your sweet comments!
thaaaaaanks! A big hug!

crocheting, crafts and beautiful things. In this world full of cruelty

a bits of 2014 and Yasmine Hamdan - Hal

A new year begins ...
These are days of disconnecting from the crochet world
and  bloger ... and more days dedicated to my little girl,
my family, my friends, watch a lot movies and days of calm for my soul ...

How you start your new year 2015?
A few days ago I thought, why not I do an overview
of the work of crochet  of year 2014?
Well, behold, some bits of the year that we have left behind ...


This year I learned to crochet shawls.
I have much fun with these crochet shawls.
And I also started to make my first amigurumis.
How I like to see these photos ...


This year I have done headbands,
mittens, crochet cowls, many different things ...


Practicing with the camera ... see how grow my little girl ...
more crochet and more hats ...


This year I do some small crochet bags ...
and more handbags with t-shirt yarn ...


Some crocheted garlands and more headbands ...


And this year, the two great crochet works of 2014
are the striped blanket and the crochet doily for the dinning table.
They are the most great crochet work that I have made last year ...


And this fall it was an exciting creation stage and
it was fully dedicated to creating crochet mittens and cowls ...
and I learned how to do the weave basket stitch ...


But ... these last days of the last year and early days of the year that beginning
for to an accumulation of very sad events I am in a thoughtful stage ...
Listening to the silence ... Many silences ...
But thinking about many things... many thoughts ...

I love see my crochet works in my little daughter ...
really ... my lovely little girl ...


I have never said that I love to see good movies?
The movies that when it was finish only just I can say
"wow, awesome" ?
Yeeeeeeeeeeeessssssss .......
Without blinking for some seconds ...
This happened these days to me with these movies ...

"wow... aweeeeeesooome ..."
I love Ben Affleck and Olga Kurylenko in To the wonder ...
this movie is a pure poetry ...

"wow! awesome!"
I love the vampirs lovers Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston
in Only Lovers Left Alive ... the original soundtrack,
with songs such as Streets of Detroit and
The Taste Of Blood are awesome too ...
the history, all art of Jim Jarmusch in this film ....
 
"wow... a-we-so-me"
I love Ellar Coltrane and Patricia Arquette in Boyhood ...
a work of art and an exceptionally well-told story ...

"wow. awesome!"
I love Scoot McNairy and Sara Simmonds in
In Search of a Midnight Kiss ... a different story!

I watch and I love these great movies these days ...
and many others ... These days have been days
of many films and ZERO hours devoted to crochet.
Sometimes it is necessary to disconnect ...
It make me more eager to return. Absolutely ...

The song for to begin the new year of my blog is a song
of soundtrack of Jim Jarmusch film.
And I tell you that all songs are AWESOME ...


Well, dear readers... today I made a different post.
I hope that you not are sleeping with my large ramblings of my things ...

Thank you for being here ....

Happy New Year
and happy crocheting

See you soon ...
