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 ....

Today I listen Anni B Sweet  .... The song Remember ....
The song Missing a Stranger .... The song Again .... 
The song At Home ... there music for every day ...
and today is the day for listening  Anni B Sweet ...
So sweet ... so perfect .... As my friends, my treasures ...


Friends are angels who give you wings
when your wings not remember how to fly.

One angel today she needs more wind to fly .... 
she is an angel, it is true because she have really wings ....
a big hug, my lovely friend ... I'm with you with your pain ...

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!

We make crochet, not war

I am involved in several projects crochet,
I hope to finish next week and show you it.
For now, here are some bits ....


You can imagine that will be this ...?
I am impatient to finish these crochet projects!
Soon, soon ...


And I'm happy for the purchase of a new book.
This time a book sewing. Yeeeeeeeees!
I found many things on the network and Pinterest,
but I likes also to have my small library of crochet and sewing projects ...
In this book have many easy projects for people like me
who have no idea of sewing. I love my new purchase!


I hope you have a beautiful day full of sewing,
crocheting, crafts and beautiful things. In this world full of cruelty
sometimes I have trouble concentrating for make beautiful things ... 
I wish in the country where you are now,
whatever religion that you have, I hope you're happy ...
Say NO to terrorism. Say NO to fanaticism.
We make crochet, not war.

A big hug to you all, my dear readers...

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 ...
