Duplicate stitch

Hello, my friends!

Are you spending some good time this weekend? What are you crafting right now? I saw that there is a lot of snow around Europe (except here in Parma, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…… ) so I suppose that you’re cozy wrapped in your favourite blanket and easily snuggled on the sofa with a hot good cup of tea to warm you more….. oh, what a beautiful image….

Me…. well,I’m happy spending my time at home waiting for my Big man coming home from a work lunch and in the meanwhile I’m struggling with some yarn that I dislike indeed…. well,it happens sometimes that you have an unexpected project…. I have to face one of them right now but can’t tell you anything about because it’s a birthday pressie…. The yarn…. oh,it was not my choice because it’s a pressie made with others….. I’m a bit irritated since my opinion wasn’t taken into consideration at all when it was purchased and now I have to work it and trasform something so very old fashioned into something trendy…. Yes,I’m quite nervous and snarly because of that…. so, just to please my curiosity and the will to learn something new, I knitted a coaster and tried the duplicate stitch….


This is a small insignificant project but I think that,in the future, I will develop this technique quite a lot…. I have already an idea in my mind….. but now…. BACK TO WORK!!!

A “late” pressie

Hello, my friends!!

These last few days were quite crafty and colourful… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Dear Bmary, these are the goodies which are meant to be shipped to you! It was so hard for me not to publish their photos, I like the colours so much that I couldn’t wait…. please, just write me on tajanarabar(at) or tajanarabar(at) and tell me where I have to send the parcel…Β  πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
….. here are the socks I’ve promised to you….. I knitted them with some acrlylic yarnΒ  I had at mine and which you can easily hand wash…. do neither iron them, please, nor steam…. I hope that they will fit you well (finger crossed) …. they are thought to be worn while taking a nap on the sofa during long and cold winter days and are so very grannylike on purpose….



……aehm….. the only elastic thread I had at mine was a golden one….. sorry….


….here you have a little garland…..




….. and a felted heart,too….


….. sorry, you’re a victim of my sewing attemps…. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ ……


Enjoy! ❀ ❀ ❀
