This is it !!!!

....The nice piece of fabric has its own identity, eventually!!!

When I left you last time, the thing was still like this...

...and I was thinking : what to do with that?
Then I remembered a nice pattern, written by Nata for last Christmas....I had to crochet some curlicues!!! So, I did!!
The difference with Nata's pattern is, mainly, that I only crocheted 8 chains for the loop and I attached it at the bottom of the circle (precisely, 9 circles!), closing the loop with a slip stitch...

...then, I followed the pattern word by word, till I had my first curlicue done... I started a second one...

...and I had two!!!!...

...and then a third one...

....and more....

...and more (!!!!)...

...a close up... happy to take these photos (tons : sorry for that!), but the sun outside was very kind with me.... only curlicues???? If you know me well, you even know that the answer to that question will be NO ! Having still a lot of yarn, I opted for some pompoms (27!), with the idea to put them on the other side of the thing...

...obviously, I had to trim them all (do you love the mini basket, made by me, btw???)...

Later, I went out in my back garden where I cut a thick bamboo branch, that I cleaned from the dirt and from extra bulges and leaves with the idea to use it like a rod...

...and after 27 quadruple knots (!!!!), I finally had my big rug panel....

...that is still waiting to be hung on the right wall....


Thank you to all the ones that have lefts ideas and good advices on how to use this nice piece of fabric, because they are all doable!!!!! ;oD

  26. It's amazing and I just realized that it actually looks like it was influenced by some Malaysian(or chinese?) handiwork....isn't there some traditional craft that also has pom poms on it? Thanks for sharing on Craft schooling sunday!

Make it ! Knitted triangular scarf !!!

Last December, I saw a very simple and cute scarf knitted by Angie ( le monde de sucrette) and I thought to knit one for me, too, but then I was busy with the gifts to prepare for family and friends back in Italy .... so nothing was done for me!!! Luckily, some days ago, while browsing through my blogs list, I found a post from Ilaria ( IDA interior lifestyle) , who was proposing the same (she added a pompom!) piece of clothing .... I didn't have any excuse to wait longer for knitting my own triangular scarf!!!! ;oD So, I started .... Do you want to start one, too ??? Well, you need : some yarn ! My personal choice was : Lana Grossa Basics Calmo (59% acrylic, 24% cotton and 17% linen), shade 207. All my 4 balls of yarn (50g each) have been used for this project. Then 2 balls (50g each) from Rowan Classic Cotton Jeans Yarn (100% cotton), shade 365-Sierra, for both stripes and tassels! a pair of 4,5mm  knitting circular needles or, if you prefer, a pair of long strai

Make it ! The Granny Bunny !!!

You know, this picture from my  Instagram feed  has collected more than 900 likes ... ... and a colourful crocheter named Karin @woolfieber , made her own version just looking at my pic (you can find her work  HERE  ) !!!! My idea, since the beginning , was to prepare a photo tutorial for you, but do you really need one ? These Granny Bunnies are so easy to crochet, believe me !!!! YOU NEED : some colourful mercerised cotton a 3,5 mm hook a pair of scissors a tapestry needle beads for embellishments (optional) Please note that I follow the US crochet terminology, thank you ! Each bunny measures 13 cm in height and it can be used for different purposes : bunting, hanging decorations, appliques, brooches, on napkin rings and more !!!! The sky's the limit !!! You can use this pattern even with different yarns and, consequently, hook sizes !!! ;oD Abbreviations : DC = double crochet ch = chain SC = single crochet 2SCtog = 2 single crochet

Make it ! The Granny Yarn Chain !!!

ARE YOU READY FOR THIS ???? SURE YOU ARE !!! I now that!!!! ;oD So during this last week I was showing you via Instagram (see  my personal feed ) some colourful pictures about my new crochet w.i.p. , which I completed last night ... ... so this morning, before school/office time a couple of boys helped me with the last photos for this blog post ... TA-DAH ... The beauty of this project resides in the fact that is adaptable to any extent, any kind of yarn and any corner of your home (in or out!) !!! The inspiration and "creative kick" derives from two other projects I've seen around :  The Chain Statement Necklace  by my dear friend Miki from  Set Free My Gypsy Soul  and  Peggy's Comfy Indoors Blanket  by Pip Lincoln from  Meet Me at Mike's  !!! Thank you both, girls !!! It has been a long time since I've been wanting to crochet (or even knit !) a paper chain ... I made some long paper chains for our Christmas tree back in Indonesia but I al
