I have moved to blogspot.


Please update your links.

I have joined Swap-Bot! I have already joined 3 swaps, and completed 2 of them. I specially like the “Quick Christmas Postcard Swap”. At first I thought of buying postcards. But, then I decided to make my own postcards. Here is one of the postcard that I sent to it’s recipient:

And finally I have bought new computer for me. I like my new 19″ screen. I’m so happy. This is my new friend:

And with buying new computer I bought Flash Drive as well. I immediately crocheted a pouch for it.It is so small that I can say that I didn’t even spend yarn for it.

I have finally received my swap scarf. The swap was organized on the craft forum “Stvaram” for Croatian speaking ladies. I can’t speak Croatian very well, but I can certainly understand it well and also my father is a Croat. So, I think that in some way this makes me part of these ladies/women.

I was anxious to see my new scarf and to see who was knitting mine. It couldn’t be better. This scarf is knitted by Goce. I think that she is a great woman. She has 3x years, four kids and she still has time to do a lot of knitting, crocheting and other crafts.

As for the scarf, I must admit that I am not brave enough to wear scarfs that are too colorful. But this one it’s just perfect and it has grown on me. I love it. It is very soft and I appreciate it even more because I can’t knit .

Look at me ! I’m in my pajamas and I have my new scarf on me. This scarf brings joy in me . I love it. THANK YOU, GORDANA!

After a lot of riping, I finally finished it. I don’t know how to knit so a friend of mine knitted the cables for me.

I thought that it was going to be easy doing the rest. I had a lot of trouble crocheting the top of the bag and the handles.

Finally this cable bag is finished it’s ready for use.

The other day, I remembered an old project and immediately started crocheting it again. First it should of been a bikini. Then I thought that it would be better that I use it to make a summer dress. And now, finally it’s going to be a top.

I’m very happy how this top is turning out.

At the lower part of this top I’m crocheting some kind of an afghan stitch and so far it looks even better than I imagined that it would be.

Today, I decided to treat myself with some new stuff. I just like spoiling myself and that’s why I bought two magazines.

The first one is a magazine called RAKAM. It’s written on Italian and it’s full of interesting crafty projects. There are instructions for different kinds of embroidery, and that’s the main purpose of this magazine, as I can see. But there are crochet projects inside, too.

I would like to crochet at least one of the bags, but I don’t have any yarn for them. They are marked as my future projects that are going to be made.

And the second magazine is this one that is called “Mani di Fata”.It says “Magazine for Ladies and Babies”. This magazine is also full of embroidery projects, but there are more knitting and crochet projects. There are some interesting knitted tops inside that got me interested.

On the cover you can see this beautiful crocheted bikini.I’m not sure that I would wear a crocheted bikini(because I don’t know how it’s gonna look like when it gets wet), but I would certainly transform it into a top. That’s something that I would definitely wear.

I’m not a kind of a person who likes to do embroidery, but there are some projects in these magazines that got me interested. Who knows? Maybe I will start doing them. Never say neveršŸ™‚ .

I don’t know the Italian language and I don’t know how that’s gonna work. I am hoping that dictionary will solve my problems.

And another thing, my grandma agreed to knit me a plain hat (Happy singing in my head). I love all of her knitted works, but I have trouble making her agree to knit, because she says that her hands are sore and they heart a lot from knitting. So, this time she agreed to to knit a hat, and I immediately bought beautiful and soft white yarn. I don’t have any picture of it now, but I will take one of the finished product.

Look at the new earrings that I made. I’m very happy with the outcome.

First, Sunstone earrings (two pairs), one for me, and one for my friend Ole. And, pair of wooden earrings in the middle are also for my friend Ole.

There are four choices above. I will be making one pair of earrings and I can’t decide witch one. I’m waiting for Ole, aka my customer, to decide. These are red wooden beads that have flowers painted on them. They are so cute.

Maybe, you are wondering why so many earring to Ole? Well, It’s simple. She has a fetish, and her fetish are earrings. She is very happy with every pair of earrings that she gets from friends or those that she buys for herself. How can you not like making gifts for people like that?

These are the earrings that I gave her before.
