Crochet Apple

I really enjoyed making this lovely apple. Once found the pattern, I knew I could not wait. With a cup of coffee and a hook, I started right away. It turned out lovely, isn't it?
How nice it looks to be on a tree! I just love to give it to you all!
Oh, I nearly forgot, you can get the pattern here if you're interested in.

It's time I have to back to my knitting, I have just started and really love to learn.

Enjoy your Sunday, my lovelies!

See you soon, xxx

Crochet Another Pouch

Long time ago I gave a colleague of mine a little pouch as a gift. She loved it so much, and although it's now getting old and shaggy, she still brings it with her every day. I know it's time to replace it with a new one so I made this one for her.

How it looks like with the lining inside. Did I mention I love sewing lining for all my bags? My sewing machine seems just to be used for making that only thing! :)
Fastened it off by pulling the drawstring. Actually I prefer a zipper than a drawstring, but attaching a zipper always scares me! Anyway, hope it will be with her all the way!

Crochet Cute Little Doggie

Hi everyone! Long time no see! I miss blogging so much, miss all my lovelies and that's great to be here with you again!

Today I would like you to meet my Little Puppy, he's very happy to meet you!

"Hello! So nice to meet you!"

A smile is a good sign of happiness, isn't it? "Yes, I am smiling, and welcome you to my close friend's blog!"

"I was watching and listening her carefully when she was telling me about some lovely things in life, and about how she's happy to have you here!"

Oh my lovely Puppy, what are you thinking? You seem staring into space! "No, I just feel sad a little bit, as it's time I have to say goodbye my new friends, I will miss them!". Don't worry little Puppy, you will always in our hearts!

So, take a rest Puppy, have a good sleep, and beautiful dreams will come....!
Oh what a lovely Puppy! I love him so much!

You love him, too? And you also love to have the pattern for your own? I knew I did, when I first saw the pattern here and bookmarked it. But this time, by clicking the link above, you will see nothing on the page, I don't know why too. Luckily, I did make a copy on my hard drive, so I can share it to you all now, please come here HERE to get yours!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Love the Sunshine

It's been quite some time since my last post, about ten days, hasn't it? It seems like ages to me!!!
I was a little bit busy these days, so now I am back to say 'Hi' to you all, hope you have a wonderful time!
This lovely heart motif is from "Beyond the Squares" - Edie Eckman - I mentioned in my last post. It's also the first time I tried a thing with my favorite book. And I love it. Do you think "Sunshine Heart" is a good name? :)

Enjoying flowers in sunshine is really great, they are so bright and beautiful. I took some "Sunshine Pics" today and would love to share you.

This lovely flower is quite popular in tropical climate areas, so once I saw it from Attic24, I just love to tell her there are so many such flowers in my garden. I knew them when I was just a very little girl, and now they're still there, as from all my childhood...
These flowers have just come to my garden recently, and I have no idea what they are called, just love them, the tiny flowers look bright and lovely in sunshine!
These flowers are always growing in clusters, so once they are in blossom, they look like to be in a vase!
And here, also in sunshine, a washcloth with sc cluster edging for my friend, she loves pink, and really loves it. Ah, it's also a big surprise to her knowing I can crochet! :)

Crochet Colorful Bracelets

These bracelets are what I did on the rest of last Sunday, after "Coffee Break!". Once I found a very beautiful and easy-to-make tutorial on The Purl Bee, I knew I could not miss these lovely things, now here they are! Thanks for sharing!

I will make some more for matching my dress colors. Size S or M fix my hand well (for brown and blue one), but I also made size L for the red one, so you will see the button was not placed right at the edge as the others.
But look, it's still OK on my hand! :)
Hope you all have a new wonderful week!
