Woollen Cap wc008 (Women's peak cap hat)

This is another one peak hat. 
I really like this pattern. 
I have tried different colours 
with this pattern. 
They look really good! 
What do you think?


Woollen Cap wc007

This cap reminds me of candy corn!
It is a slouchy cap
I made this one with knitting needles, 
which is something i do not usually do. 
Most of my woollen caps 
are made with the crochet hook. 
I became a little bit more slouchy 
than i wanted it to be :-P 
So, what do you think?

Woollen Cap wc006

I really like this cap. 
It is slightly slouchy. 
It is made with puff stitches. 
It might seem like is has a lot of gaps 
between the stitches, 
but it is really warm and cozy. 
So, what do you think???

Woollen Cap wc005

This is a slightly slouchy cap
made in sea colours.
It is made with a half double crochet stitch.
The brim is made with 
front post double crochet stitches. 
This is a fluffy and warm cap. 
Of course it is already gone. 
The lady who is wearing it is my best friend.
She got it as soon as i finished it. 
:-P 
So, what do you think???

Woollen Cap wc 004 (Granny Stripes Hat)

This pattern might look familiar
to those who crochet.
It is the typical stitch of the granny squares. 
Only it is made on a cap :-P 
Again, i found the pattern at the 
"How to Crochet - The Crochet Crowd"
channel in Youtube. 
I really like their videos. 
They are so helpful for begginers 
like myself! 
So, what do you think of this hat???

Woollen Cap wc003 (5 Star Beanie)

This is another one pattern i found at the
"How to Crochet - The Crochet Crowd"
channel in Youtube.
The first time i made this, i did it wrong.
The pattern uses single crochets 
and i was useing double crochets. 
The outcome was very nice 
but it was not a 5 star beanie. 
:-P
This is the beanie 
made in the right way. 
What do you think???
By the way,
if you like the patterns
and want to check the 
"How to Crochet - The Crochet Crowd"
channel in Youtube, 
just let me know. 
It's quite easy 
to find their channel, 
but, if you do not want to search, 
i can just send you the link ;-)

Woollen cap wc002 (Women's peak cap hat)

I have made quite a lot of caps by now,
but this is not exactly a cap.
This one actually has the shape of a hat.
This is a lovely pattern i found at the 
"How to Crochet - The Crochet Crowd" 
chanel in Youtube. 
Their host, Mikey, is really amazing. 
He gives nice direction 
while showing the crochet tecniques. 
If you have some time, 
go check out their videos. 
I bet you will love them! 
I am not accustomed in 
using myself a s a model. 
It is a little uncomfortable for me. 
:-P
But i had no other model at the moment...

Embroidered picture 10


Don't laugh, please!!!
I was trying to learn
how to embroider pansies... 
but i didn't do so well, did I? 
:-P 
Anyway, 
it's not such a bad picture... 
It's just not what 
it was suppose to be. 
What do you think???

Embroidered picture 9


I love strawberries! 
So i thought i could make 
an embroidered picture with strawberries. 
It might not be perfect... 
but it's not so bad either :-P 
What do you think???

Embroidered picture 8


This is my first effort
to embroider something more 
than just flowers. 
It's made with embroidery cotton floss.
I like it! 
What do you think???

Embroidered picture 7



This is one of my favorite embroidered pictures.
I made it with embroidery cotton floss.
I didn't use many colors. 
I wanted this one to be simple and beautiful. 
What do you think???

Embroidered picture 6



For this embroidered picture
i used both embroidery cotton floss 
and knitting yarn. 
I think i like the outcome... 
What do you think???

Embroidered picture 5



This embroidered picture is made 
with embroidery cotton floss. 
I am not very happy with the way
the sentral flower looks. 
What do you think???

Embroidered picture 4



I really like the flower figures! 
They are not easy to make, 
but i think they look pretty. 
Those are made with knitting yarn. 
The shapes are nice and fluffy. 
What do you think?

Embroidered picture 3


This is my third effort to make 
an embroidered picture. 
As you might have noticed, 
the first and the second are 
missing from this blog. 
They also miss from my collection, 
because they were really awful :-P
What do you think of this one?

Woollen Cap wc001

I think i really like making woollen caps.
I didn't expect it,
but it is a fun project.
This is a simple cap.
It's unisex, which means it's good 
both for men and women. 
It's made with a mixed yarn 
(wooll and acrylic).
What do you think?

Easter Candle 058

Those of you who 
follow me for some time
must already know that
purples and lilacs are 
my favorite colours.
So, naturally, 
this candle is one 
of my favorites! 
I really love the way 
the coloured sand, the strass  
and the ribbons came together. 
If my godfather wasn't going 
to bring me a candle, 
this is the candle i would like 
to have with me 
at the night of Easter this year.

Easter Candle 057

I used a lot of coloured sand 
on my candles, this year. 
In combination with the ribbons, 
they give a nice outcome! 
I must admit, 
I didn't expect it to look so good. 
What do you think?

Easter Candle 056

This year, i used a lot of twine 
on my Easter candles. 
It might be a simple, common material, 
but it looks really nice on the candles. 
What do you think?

Easter Candle 055

That's something new. 
I used coloured rice on this candle. 
It's mostly pink, 
but there are some light blue grains too. 
And, of course, butterflies!!! 
What do you think???

Easter Candle 054

I really love sea themes
for Easter candles!
Combining twine with the little dolphins
and some blue aromatic sand
seemed like a nice way 
to decorate this candle. 
What do you think???

Easter Candle 053

This may be the easiest candle 
i've ever made. 
I just glued those little 
eggs and chicks on it. 
I can't say i like it very much. 
But i guess it could be good 
for very young children... 
What do you think?

Easter Candle donation 2017 (IV)

Flowers and petals are 
one of my favorite ways to decorate candles.
But i didn't use them too much this year.
I think the candles are more simple this year. 
In compare with other years,
 they do not have a lot of stuff on them. 
I believe that's better. 
What do you think?

Easter Candle donation 2017 (III)

Another new thing i did this year 
is using glitter and aromatic sand 
on the candles. 
This, along with some nice ribbons, 
created some really nice candles. 
I got some really good comments 
for those candles!

Easter Candle donation 2017 (II)

I made some changes this year. 
I used flowers and ribbons 
as always! 
But i also used twine. 
I think they look good! 
I think i'll do that again :-)

Easter Candle donation2017 (I)

So, I made the Easter candles 
for my village's Church, 
just like I do every year 
for the last few years. 
I think this year's Easter candles 
are better than ever! 
What do you think?

Easter Candle 052

That's another one candle 
decorated with pink glitter. 
It doesn't have a lot of things on it, 
but still it looks quite beautiful. 
Simple and nice! 
What do you think?

By the way, 
if you like any of my candles 
please feel free to contact me. 

Easter Candle 051

I made some experiments 
with pink glitter today. 
This candle is an outcome 
of these experiments :-P 
I am really satisfied with it! 
What do you think?

Easter Candle 050

I think flowers are
my all time favorite way
to decorate candles.
I love the colours.
In a combination with some nice ribbons
they look amazing! 
What do you think?

Easter Candle 049

This candle is decorated with twine.
Twine is an easy thing to use 
in order to decorate candles. 
It fits with nearly everything. 
Plus, it comes in many sizes 
so i can even use a combination 
of different kinds of twine. 
I really like it! 
What do you think?

Winter red set

This is the fourth
and last set of my order. 
For this one i had to 
choose the yarn by myself. 
I knew it had to be red 
but i wanted a playful red 
not a simple, boring red 
(if red can ever be boring, anyway).
This is a bright red 
with very dark spots on it. 
I know the picture is not very good. 
Sorry!
What do you think?

Easter Candle 048

This Candle is painted with paint
instead of glitter glue.
Again, 
I had to be extremely careful with it. 
But i believe it worth it!
What do you think?

Easter Candle 047

A little glitter glue and some shiny stickers.
This kind of Candles 
might seem easy to make, 
but they do need a lot of care. 
What do you think?

Easter Candle 046

For me, this is a classic design
for an Easter Candle. 
I always decorate some candles 
this way. 
I really like them. 
They are simple, yet beautiful. 
What do you think?

Winter blue set

This is the second set of
cap and scarf for my order.
I actually made two of these. 
They really look much better from close. 
What do you think?

Easter Candle 045

The decoration on the candle is made 
of cinnamon sticks and coffee beans. 
I really love making such things. 
They look beautiful 
and they smell amazing! 
What do you think?

Easter Candle 044

...because Cars are always in fashion! 
I really love the Cars movies. 
...and i'll never grow up!!! 
:-P

Winter Green set

This is a set of cap and scarf 
made for a little boy. 
This set is part of an order i had. 
I really like this colour 
so i decided to start with this. 
What do you think?

Baby Pink set

This is a set of woollen cap and scarf. 
I made those for a little girl who loves pink! 
It took me quite some time 
because my right wrist does 
not cooperate anymore :-( 
So... what do you think?

Beige woollen cap

This kind of cap is quickly
turning into one of my
favorite things to crochet!
It's relatively fast and easy to do. 
And i like this particular colour. 
I still have a lot of differend 
colours to try ;-) 
So, what do you think?
Due to the lack of a better model, 
I used myself as a model this time. 
:-P

Wrist Warmers ww029

Making wrist warmers is
one of my favorite things to do.
I always try to find new ways 
to decorate them. 
I think a sort of embroidery works well. 
What do you think?

Puff stitch woollen cap

So, i am experimenting with caps lately. 
This is the very first cap i made 
using this stitch. 
It's not as thick as it should be. 
But i guess, next time i'll know better. 
This is a nice hue of pink. 
I like this colour. 
What do you think?
