Crochet Again

are you enjoying your weekend?

it is beginning to look a lot like winter here in Canada

temperatures around -10 C, snow and bright sunny days ~ I love this weather


warm inside our home I started a new project, my first in 2012

do you remember these lovelies I found in New York last Fall?

I love the flower pattern so much

I am trying to transfer it to a yarn project

so I took my colored pencils and draw out a pattern... to crochet!

it looks a lot like an embroidery pattern and I might even embroider the rose one day

but now I am making tiny crochet squares and plan to make them into a cushion cover or small blanket

it is a try out, so I will see what I end up making ~ smile

and it was about time I started crocheting again

it feels good to be working on a new, fresh project

and enjoying the flowers and beautiful sunny days at the same time

I love how the sun reflects through the icicles

but I must admit

my last knitting project is not yet finished

although I am coming close to finishing this shawl

after this pink part, there is one more white and one more grey part to go, and then I can start wearing it!

don't these knitting and crochet projects make a perfect match?

wishing you a happy creative Sunday too


  1. Oh..I love this weather too!! We are 10 today...but still no snow.... : ( ....I love your colors and what a wonderful idea to do the crochet pillow that way ..I'd never thought of that! Like puzzle pieces!! Enjoy your cozy day!!

  2. I love your scarf already, the colors are so nice!
    I also like the idea of arranging crochet squares into a pattern. Yep, I like your way of thinking!!!

  3. You always end up with these matching posts! How is that? Is your wardrobe just as matched, I wonder... Mine is chaos. A little bit of this, a little bit of that. Totally unorganized. After reading your letter (Thanks :D!)I have come to realize you are a bit of an organized lady. I guess you will use those crochet squares like mosaics... How clever is that!!! You amaze me darling. And I wonder why I didn't come up with that idea... Now I will probably turn into a boring copy cat...Big kiss. ♥♥♥ Annette

  4. Het bloemenstofje vind ik prachtig en ik ben benieuwd hoe je haakwerk eruit gaat zien!!! knufzz...peebee

  5. Can´t wait to see how your crochet idea comes into life. I love your creativity. And the scarf is coming along beautifully.
    Happy knittings!
