Summer colors in winter...

Hello Dear Friends!
We are having coldest days in this corner of the world but this does not keep me from day-dreaming of summer.

One of the patterns is Catherine's Wheel pattern and the other is the ripple pattern.

Have a lovely week!

Last FO of the year 2015

Hello Dear Friends!
This is the last FO of the year. It is not finished in the picture but I did not have the chance to photograph the finished blanket yet.I did two rows of double crochet on the edge in turqoise and red.
Is it so obvious that I did the photo shooting in a rush?There is hardly any time for anything. I feel exhausted.

This is the view from My Little Man's window; with basil in the window sill.
When I am not  at work or at the faculty, I try to do some home-making. This was from a day as such.



Happy New Year!

Ta-daa!

Hello Dear Friends!
I am back with a ta-daa! post!
This lovely baby girl blanket is finished and wrapped :)
It is made of 25 squares . I used mercerized cotton ; perfect for a hot summer...
My Little Man got a bit jealous and banned me from making blankets for other people and babies. Luckily, his blanket is in progress and close to finishing too...
I love this pattern but the popcorns take time to crochet and I can only make a square a night! But if you think this will keep me from making popcorns, you are definitely wrong. I have already started to plan my next project which is another pattern by Haafner.
Have a lovely week!

I have been robbed!

Hello Dear Friends!
I would like to thank you for your best wishes for my illness. I am well; my test results came ok. I have been very happy for my health then I have started realizing some of my blankets missing.  After long discussions with my mom and sister; we have realized that we have been robbed by the lady who was supposed to help my mom take care of my sister's baby and who had work for us for almost two years.  At  first, we did not realize anything, then we started realizing small items missing; like flower seeds or seedlings or tomatoes gone missing which we had picked earlier from our garden.(such naives we were!) When my mom's neighbour warned us, we started paying attention and we became aware of the small thefts.We did not go to the police(what a mistake!) then but we ended our contract with her.But by that time, she had come to my house three times to help with the cleaning because my cleaning lady went to her home country for three weeks.I work a lot, I come home mostly to sleep so it took me almost six months to realize what went missing;unfortunately there are four crochet blankets missing -two crocheted by me.One is this blanket and the other is this . Both blankets were very much loved and used by My Little Man. So today, I am  grieving the loss of my blankets.I know they are not humans and it is not a precious thing like life that is lost but they were crocheted with so much love and care, I can't help but feel sad.
I hope to be back with happier news next time.  Until then, take care....
