Back Again!

Hello, my friends!

It was about time to be back blogging again! Oh, I was quite busy with my Christmas crafting but I also had some health issues, nothing serious, I’m on my way solving my troubles, but all that kept me away from my blog. Well,to be honest, I hope that I can be online more often but I’m not sure… Life has become busy lately and I kindly ask you to not judge me too hard for my absence… Oh,I almost forgot to tell that I have started to attend German language lessons too, I need to know German if I want to work here around and learning it is taking a great part of my free time…

But I don’t want to bother you with my troubles, I want to share my last FO projects! Crafting is great and creating is still the best antidepressant for me 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 And sweet lovely things are worth sharing!!

The scarf I knitted for my FIL suits better my Big man so I decided to keep it at ours! (My FIL will have a new pair of socks instead!)

You can find the pattern here 🙂 It is so simple to knit and it turns out so beautifully!! Yeah, I’m so pleased with this scarf 🙂

I made myself a slouchy hat following this pattern

I have taken some photos from the back but they had turned out very badly…. Well,have a look to the pattern, my hat is so very alike the original photos. Oh and I have used the yarn I had bought at Abilmente. 🙂

My MIL has her Christmas gift ready too…

I have followed several tutorials foun on Pinterest to sew this blanket and I like to see my handwriting embroidered…. 😛 😛 😛

And last but not least, a detail….

I can’t tell you what it is but I had to show you this dragonfly…. A nice gift from Uncinetto e mille fili colorati ❤ ❤ ❤

I made more little sweet things but I still can’t show them to you! I promise to make a lot of photos before giving my pressies away!!

I wish you a great day and hope that I’ll be back as soon as possible!!

Back From Holiday

Hello, my friends!

How are you? Is everything ok?? I hope it is and I hope that you are having a great end of this crazy summer! My Big man is back to work and I’m back to my crafting after having spent four days in Croatia. There is a lot of things to talk about and I was wondering which photos share with you first. There are many of them to be shown, in particular those from our holidays are quite interesting, but I decided to start with the craft done before leaving, to put some order in the last week happenings. Both because I’d like to do justice to a great crochet designer and a friend and because I’d like to show you my first Xmas scarf FO yesterday night 🙂

As first, let start with the second bag I sewed for the family girls. I have found a tutorial for a really nice bag. I have simply fell in love with it and decided to try myself with, even if it looked a bit tricky…. well, it wasn’t so difficult to sew but I have had some problems with the union of the top and the bottom since the main fabric and the lining have to be attached in the same time…. oh,my version of it isn’t so bad at all, since I use jute and it looks quite cozy, but if I want to sew an elegant version, like the one from the tutorial, I have to be more careful…. here are the photos of my bag…

I find it so suitable for my artistic SIL! Very simple, made out from some natural fabric as jute and with one beautiful flower to adorn it. I hope she will like it 🙂 What do you think about my versione of the Canvas Slim Bag? Do you like it and, in particular, do you like the crocheted flower? I’m so very happy to introduce this ornament to you because its pattern was written by my friend Jennifer whose blog, Squirrel Picnic, I simply adore. This lovely lady is writing a crochet book, The Big Acorn Race, and asked me to be a tester for her pattern for this lovely flower named Tall ‘n’ Fast!

Can you imagine how happy and honoured I was and am to have taken part to her beautiful project!!! I highly recommend you to have a look at her blog,you’ll find there a lot of inspiration, and follow her during the book writing! She’s a genious indeed!! Can’t wait to see the book! Hi, Jennifer, hugs are crossing the ocean!! ❤

The first Xmas scarf is done! YIPPEE!!! I have started it a while ago and since I worked only during evenings I’m happy that it is FO 🙂 Since today it is quite cloudy I was lucky to have caught some sunshine during the photo session 😀

A simple seed stitch and some nice soft yarn, a mixture of cotton and merino wool, in a nice dark brown shade. So manly,don’t you think? 😉

I’ll be back soon with my holiday photos.
