I love butterflies.

They are colorful.

They are happy.

And they even symbolize belief in something good and beautiful that may come our way.

 

For all these reasons, and also for I am a real crochet maniac, I thought it would be great to make about 120 of them.

Plus 20 flowers.

I’ve had the best time ever!

 

The butterflies and flowers have found their place in my newly opened shop.

 
 

They are waiting there for a crafty person to adopt them and use them in some super cute project.

 
 

Enjoy!

Love,
Petra

 

P.S.: Tomorrow we are leaving for a super-fun-four-day holiday. I can’t wait. I’ve been waiting for that holiday for ages. As usual, I am planning to take a zillion pictures. At least! And I will sure share the cutest of them here with you.

A new bag has been born.

I guess somebody had a picture of full-blown spring or summer on her mind while making it.

Can you feel the sunshine?

And the sweet smell of flowers in bloom?

Mmm…

 
 

Of course, there’s an inside pocket.

 

Actually, what would life be like if there were no cute pockets inside our bags?

Not a life for me, I’m sure.

Definitely.

 
 

There’s a cheerful yellow lining inside.

 
 

And the bag also has a removable adornment.

Just to make things a bit more fun.

 
 

A bag to brighten up your days.

 
 

I’ve created an online shop yesterday.

From now on, I’ll be placing there some of the thingies I make.

To get inside the shop, just click the banner named ‘My Shop’ placed in the right column of this page.

 
 

When you click the banner, you will get here – into my super-secret, super-small shop.

 

Enjoy!

 

Love,

Petra

Here they are.

The crocheted purses.

This is what I’ve been working on recently.

 

 

This one is gray and has four big happy flowers.

Hm, which is exactly what the picture shows.

 

 

The side view.

 

 


It has a lining.

For the things inside to stay perfectly safe.

 

 

And it also has an inside pocket.

 
 

I love making these purses so much.

 
 

The purse number two.

 

 

This one has a tassel.

 

 

It has a lining and a pocket too.

 

 

The third one.

 

 

I love the shape.

 

 

And I adore the flowers.

They are so much fun to make.

 

 

The lining.
 

 

The pink pocket inside.

 

 

And the tassel.

 

 

All three of them, side by side.

 

There’s also a lovely orange one that I am finishing just now. It’s ultra happy and positive. I’ll be posting the pictures as soon as I take them.

 

And probably there will be an online shop soon so I can share these babies with the world.

 

Have a wonderful day, dear friends!

 

Love,

Petra

I’ve prepared a little picture story for you.

It documents the past weeks of my life when I was feeling a little under the weather.

 

The sickness arrived vigorously, it ate almost all my energy and left me chewed up, dumbstruck and confused. As a result, I was spending all my time lying in bed, staring at the ceiling or at the wall alternately. Just as I was considering to learn some voodoo to make my zombie life perfect, luckily, another idea came to my mind.

I grabbed some yarn…

 
 

… and crocheted, and crocheted, and crocheted.

I had just enough energy to do that. That and watching stand-up comedians for hours on end.

 
 

I was making purses.

And purses, and purses, and more purses.

Purses overload.

I loved it.

 

 

Actually, I loved it so much that I bought this ‘toy’ called ‘Ota’.

Me and my toy Ota are trying to make nice linings for the purses.

 

I’ll show you the whole purses as soon as I make nice pictures of them.

Which will be soon.

 
 

And then there’s another thing.

I also got this yarn.

This yarn, with a little help from above, should turn into cute, little teddy-bears.

 

 

Look, they are almost alive.

That’s their little eyes and noses inside the box.

I can’t wait to start.

 

So, as you can see the story of my sick days wasn’t that sad after all.

And, fortunately, I am starting to feel much better which means that I have enough energy to cook and will post a yummy recipe soon.

 

I hope you are doing fine, dear friends.

Have a wonderful day!

 

Love,

Petra
