For your dining table

For us the dinner is the most important time of the day, when we finally can sit down together. Honestly during the week we have simple meals, which require just 20-30 minutes to make, because I don't have too much time for cooking. It can be a quick fresh sandwitch, ham & eggs, a salat, it doesn't matter, just be easy to prepare, tasty and healthy.
Sometimes I cook a fancy supper for my husband with first course, main dish and deserts and then I love to decorate the dining table also. Buying supplies for my kitchen is definitely my weakness. But who's not? I was browsing for inspirations, because I would love to refresh our table a little bit. Here are my favourite picks.

Aren't these pastel colors just lovely? These pleated lanterns just add the wow factor to this pure interior. Get the tutorial HERE.



This idea could be a lovely detail in a rustic themed party.

This set of coasters is not a free pattern, but I took onto my to-do list right away when I saw it. It would be such a nice decoration in my kitchen!




There are no Summer without eating out. We love chilling on the balcony or having a BBQ with our family and friends. This glamorous place holder could function as centerpieces in any garden party.





A few month before I have crocheted these coasters, now I would love to make a few in other colors. Maybe some yellow and orange, those ones would look great on my table. I just imagine a huge bottle of fresh lemonade, chocolate muffins and some sweet peach in my fruit basket...  yummie!

Simple beret crochet pattern

Do you know my Little Red Riding Hood Beret? I am releasing the new version of the original pattern. It is simplified, but a little bit tighter than the sample one was. The first sample of this hat has been made with 3.5 mm hook and DK weight yarn, the number of stitches were divisible by 16. This version is simplier. I used 4.00 mm (G hook) and worsted weight yarn for a fitted looking, the number of stitches is divisible by 12. 

Here is the newly made simplier version of this beret. This time in creamy peach color:

Difficulty level: easy – for beginners too (ch, dc, basic decreasing and increasing technics) Finished measurements: fits to an average women’s head
Materials:
•worsted weight yarn (approx. one smaller ball)
•crochet hook G/ 4.00 mm
•stitch marker (if you feel more comfortable with it)
•tapestry needle (to weave the ends)


Abbreviations: ch  chain dc double crochet dc2tog  decreasing two stitches with double crochet sl st 

Crochet purse for the Summer

Yippie, I have made my very first summer purse! Okay, actually it is not a new project,  a couple weeks ago you could already see some WIP pictures of it, but on the past weeks I was obsessed with sewing. That's why I deferred publication.
So time to show you one of my favourite crochet object. It is finally something for myself!! After several baby hats and simple amirgurumis for my family, I made a bag for myself... just for fun... You probably know what does it mean: when your family and friends discover 'your talent',  you don't have time to create just for yourself.



You could have already seen these squares and here where I promised, that I would make a bag from it!  So I kept my promise. It wasn't easy to turn the granny into a bag (or bag-like) shape. After several tryings with flowers and different shapes I found the simple chain loops the easiest way to turn the square into a bag.
It is not a big purse, I am sure that I won't take it for shopping, but…

Crochet Frog Applique {pattern}

A few months ago my cousin sent me a picture from a pair of baby shoes with frog applique, that she wanted for Lili. I made a quick google search for a pattern, but didn't find any. So I tried to figure out how to crochet the applique. I must confess, that the shoes are still not ready, because the first try turned out too small for Lili's feet. And now as she is learning to walk, she needs for professional shoes. So I will use these frogs later for another project. If you have any tip what should I make with them, share with me!

Materials:  - a few yards of DK weight yarn (or any weight by your choice) in green, white and red
Tools & notions: - G / 4.00 mm hook - safety eyes
- needles
