I became an aunt again
On 29.08.2012 my little niece ♥ Mia Dorothea ♥ was Born ♥ 2750 gramms and 48cm ♥
and because I wish the sun will always shine for her I crochet a big sun for her to hang over her bed. Here it is:
I tried it straight away and it was easy to follow and crochet in no time. I only added the outer edge to it (sc, ch2, all around it).
Here is my version of the heart:
Now jump over to her blog and make your own
A while ago I saw a crochet cushion on the internet that really inspired me. I found the pattern and bought it so I could make my own version of the pretty thing ♥
And here is what I made of it. It was really fun to embroider it here is a closeup of the front of the cushion. Take a look . What do you think?
This is the backside:
A little “in Progress” picture:
and the compleeted cushion:
If you are interested in making one of these pretty things here is a Link to the shop: Banju

Happy Mothersday to all the Ladies out there.
I just wanted to show you my finished little Treasure Bag. You can read about it here: http://danielasneedleart.wordpress.com/2012/05/05/flowers-bees-bugs/
I think it´s a cute Gift for a little [or not so little ;)] girl…
I bought a new pattern today. Actually I don´t have time for any crochet at the moment but I just couldn´t resist.
The pattern contains some super cute creatures and they where so easy and quick to make. I love them ♥. There´s also a little drawstring bag in the pattern where you can sew the little tresures to. But I will make that some time later….
This is her original versionn and her original picture. You can see how it looks on the head. I think it´s very pretty:
Instead of the grapes I made the rose brooch so I can war the headband with or without the flower.
I´m so fed up with this cold, wet and dark weather. I can´t wait to see the sun again and nature coming back to life. I WANT SPRING!!!
When I saw it this morning I decided to make one to attract Spring. So maybe it will come sooner ;o)
This is my version and I call it: WAITING FOR SPRING
Last year in february I found pictures of an awesome crochet heart on flickr and fell in love straight away. LaceCrochet designed them herself. I kept going back to her pictures to awww and ohhhh about the little beauties… I have to show them to you: Designed and crochet by Cheri Mancini
Aren´t they beautiful? <3<3<3<3<3
And then a few days ago I couldn´t beliebe my eyes… She wrote a pattern for them and uploaded it to http://www.ravelry.com/. And she offers the pattern for FREE. Yes, it´s unbelievable, isn´t it?
I was so happy and had to try it straight away. I never tried the bullion or roll stitch before so it was a bit difficult for me to make these. But with a little practice I´m getting better and made two little hearts that I can show you:
So if you want to give it a try and make these awesome little hearts for Valentines day here is a link to the free pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/floral-fantasy-valentine-heart
Thank you so much Cheri for sharing this pattern with us. I´m still absolutely in LOVE with it!!!
In my last post I told you that I want to try to overlay crochet. On Saturday I started with the “Overlay Mandala” pattern. My first try came out totally wonky.
I worked 11 rounds of the pattern and I knew I was doing something wrong. Frogged somes rows and did them again. But it still didn´t look right. So I started to read the instructions propperly… and yes it was my fault. I was so hot to start this project that I didn’t read every hint before I started the pattern. My bad…
And as we know: When live gives you lemons, make some lemonade. So I made a little bird of that wonky piece of crochet:
On Saturday evening I srarted again and now everything worked fine. It´s all about knowing when to crochet in back loops, when to crochet in front loops and about counting rows. Suddenly I got the hang of it and everything fell into place.
It´s sunday evening now and I finished my first Overlay Mandala. I think it´s quite ok for a first piece. So here it is…
I proudly present my first “Overlay Crochet Mandala”:
Not perfect, but for my first Mandala I´m quite pleased with it…
