Yes, holidays are here!

  What I love most about holidays is the endless amount of surprises, presents, lights and smiles! To make this even more special, I believe everyone should make at least one present or decoration or sweets – forget the stores. When I was a child, paper was my favorite material: for snowflakes, toys, garlands. This…

Crochet lace for autumn

Last days of November… The winter temperatures are already here. The only thing reminding it is not yet winter are the leaves on the trees and the lacy scarves that one can still wear. Here is one I made for this autumn, surprisingly in time! So I managed to wear it 🙂 It is a…

Just a crochet rug

  I’ve been dreaming of making a new rug for months. Crochet with such thick yarns is both hard and satisfying. My fingers hurt a bit, but then it worked soooo fast. In no time you can crochet something quite big! 🙂 I was inspired by many crocheters online who experiment with chunky/jumbo/mega crochet. Taking…

Starry scarf

We have a surprisingly beautiful autumn in Brussels! The sun lets us enjoy the color change and the calmness of early mornings. Yet the mornings are getting chilly. Chilly enough to put on a warm scarf 😉 This one is a birthday present for my friend Maaike, for whom I made the rose earrings. I…

Cozy lights for autumn evenings

Spring has been always my favorite season of the year. The new, the light, the incredible energy! But in the recent years I’ve been learning to love autumn. The colors, the fresh mornings, the cozy evenings! Especially the cozy evenings… So perfect for crochet and knitting. This lamp is a first result 🙂 * The…

Last summer project

My mini mega crochet rug

The moment I saw online the Mega Doily Rug by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, I knew I’m gonna get on this adventure! The adventure started by finding the proper materials. It was clear that I didn’t need a huge hook, since the rug could be easily crocheted by hand, so one problem less… The search for…

Summer pink

Yeeeey, it’s summer here! Temperatures finally exceeded 30 degrees – unbelievable 😉 I love love love pink in summer! Ah, I have to admit that I love pink in autumn, winter and spring as well 🙂 I also like the vintage-looking purse clasps. At first, I was hesitating of buying this one, because of those…

Welcoming a miracle!

I have already confessed how excited I get about baby news! No wonder, when my friends told me they were expecting, after sharing the joy, I said “Oh, I’m gonna crochet something.. A baby blanket!” I was very happy that the soon-to-be mommy took part in the making of this blanket. We looked together at different…
