Did I crochet in the meantime????

… Oh yes, quite a lot !!!! Just to relax and to forget about all the mess around me !!!! ;oD

I posted something on my Facebook page, such as a trio of floral coasters, my version of the popular south bay shawlette, a couple of necklaces made with tiny roses and a triangle crocheted infinity scarf !!!!

But today I'll show you other things that I didn't post anywhere !!!

a long necklace made with a curlicue (the foundation chain was made with more than 400 chains !!!)





… and some crocheted mini bags, worked with a 4mm hook and two cotton strands ( of contrasting colours) at the same time

1 - Free pattern here, click on the orange rectangle on the low right corner for the chart :







2- The "Mum Market Bag Pattern" ( free written pattern here) :




3- Crochet shopping bag ( free written pattern here ) :




… And this time I remembered to bring with me my "circles" (look here and here ), that are giving some colour to my white new kitchen……



I didn't buy any new yarn this summer and I hope to find some shops here in Maputo to create my new yarn stash ….. !!!!! ;oD

Another thing : Margot is here with us and she is enjoying it, too !!!

  3. Bene !Margot ha preso posto e sembra felice , le borse che hai fatto sono davvero belle , adoro la shopping bag , immaginavo che anche nel trambusto del trasloco non avresti rinunciato a cotone e uncinetto ! Sono curiosa di sapere se troverai interessanti negozi di lana nei paraggi , per i tuoi nuovi lavori ! Adesso il mare e il sole non mancano neanche a te ! Ti sento più vicina di prima , basta attraversare l'Africa con il pensiero ; )

  4. Wonderful to see you are back and also to see you spent you time away keeping yourself busy making lots of pretties for us to see and admire. The necklace is fabulous. I know that stitch so well it is very effective but time consuming ! Well done!
    I am not going to pop into your previous posts a I had a quick glimpse of some rather wonderful fabric photos and I want to go back to have another proper look. Those wonderful colours call me!
    keep well
