kids can be soooooo cute when they want to ...

Sim & Oli
the part you all have been waiting for - how did i join my artsy squares?
simple and efective - pretty much same c2c just in straight lines, using sc to atach my squares to the filling and frame I made...

LovelyCAL: introduction ❤

*CAL - Crochet ALong
Lovely because of all the hearts we're going to make 

why today?
because I've been thinking of hosting a CAL forever ... and about these hearts since I saw amazing warmheartedquilt by Jodi (talesofcloth.com) about a month ago ... ❤

Warmheartedquilt by Jodi

& I heard that today is first day of spring and I've been making these yellow hearts for a while and daydreaming about them when instead of crochet hook my tinybaby occupies my arms ..
I tend to overthink things but as part of my personal change (if interested more about that see almost daily pics @underthechandeleir) I learn to trust life, my gut & take a chance more often :)

I've had some color block lately and can't find the right colors for my future projects i've lined up in my head :D so I hope this will give me a looong needed push in the right direction.

Lets test me and you too! and start by making one yellow heart ;)
at this point no step by step pictures (my overthinking brain screams and bites, but I'll keep it at bay for now and share what i've done so far), but just try it out - real simple!

(two month's later - I've caved and added step-by-step pictures :D )

Tiešitā! šoreiz šeit rakstīšu latviski :) 
Nu ir beidzot gan alfabēts ar visiem x un y ko pati izmantošu visbiežāk savā instagramā, gan tīri latviskais ar šķž ar ko varēs paspēlēties mani lielie bērni..
Nekas jau nemainās, burtiņi tie paši, aprakstus uz latviešu valodu netulkošu, bet turpini lasīt un izveido arī tu pāris garumzīmes un mīkstinājuma zīmes ;)

Letter of the week: Q

quick quiet queue ...
I'm currenly in library - beeing so productive - loving that it is sooooooo quiet here - something I cant get at home pretty much never :D and there is light everywhere and those books .. all those lovely books ... i am quite temped to forget everything on my queue and just read, read, read .. but most likely I'll just take some home with me ...

To keep the productiveness flowing I will stop rambling abuout my 3 hours of freedom and start telling you about Q
Pattern for Q is pretty much the same as for O .. only this one comes with a tail (you'll make it in a 2nd row, and that is the only row that has been chaged).
