I'm back!!!

Hi my dear friends... are you still there??? I really hope so!!! ;oD

It has been a while, since my last post, last June...

Well, apart the usual difficulties with internet, I decided even to have a break from my blog, as less people read it.... maybe we are all more obsessed with Instagram, right now ... honestly I think so!

Anyway, I'm here to give you just an information or big news!!

Yesterday I put my first booklet for sale on RAVELRY !!!!

You have to find me, as homemadeatmyplace and then click on my featured designs and look for Designs with Diamonds .... and voila', my first pattern for sale is there!!!!!

I was working all the last summer on it!!!

Diamonds are my obsession, lately (at least the crocheted ones!!!) and I wanted to find the easiest way to join them together with the join-as-you-go method ... I think I did it!!!

This work is not for beginners, but is addressed to crocheters with an intermediate level of experience with crochet. The stitched used are simple (double crochet, single crochet and 2DCtog / US terms), but there are no charts or a proper photo tutorial for each step: you have to be a confident reader of written patterns .

You are mostly going to crochet samples of different patterns and motifs and when you will confident with the new technique, well everything will be possible !!!

I came out with some simple motifs, as





.... and more designs ...





Now, my question is : DO YOU WANNA TRY THEM?????

Let me know, xxxx Alessandra

  6. Hello Ale, great to have you back!! Congrats on your first vending pattern & good luck. The diamonds are really pretty. About Instagram, I'm still not taken with it and probably never will be, I still prefer the good old blogging. But I have you in my Inoreader list so I will see when you have something new around here ;-). Have a happy day! Nata xxx
