March means that spring is on it's way! This time of year all winter colors tend to be replaced by brighter ones! Lately I have this thing for pastel colors! I was never fond of such color shades but I guess I was wrong! I really enjoy working with pastel colored yarn! :)
I am also in the process of organising my craft room, supplies and of course my huge amount of yarn! I was playing around with this idea for quite a while now, thinking of ways to organize my supplies! When I stumbled across this idea in a crochet book I was thrilled! I have like a gazillion of mason jars lying around! So why not dress them up prettily and add some pretty florals? The perfect way to organize hooks, needles and other stuff! :)
I used three different sizes of mason jars and made each one a simple crochet cozy. I used the simple crochet stitch and a 4mm (G) hook. I used pastel shades for the cozies.
How to cross stitch on crochet:
Basically each sc stitch represents a square so you will cross stitch above each stitch! There are tons of free cross stitch patterns out there! I used this pattern, a pretty simple one as I am a beginner in cross stitching!
How to embroider rose and tulip:
The rose and the tulip are made using the embroidery bullion stitch! I love this stitch as it gives texture and dimension to your work! I used this tutorial to learn how to make the bullion stitch! The leaves of the flowers are made using the lazy daisy stitch! This tutorial is pretty simple and easy to follow! With a bit of practice I managed to make my flowers pretty easily!:)
Have you ever tried to cross stitch /embroider over crochet?
Wishing you a happy Friday!

Spring is slowly making it's appearance! Although the weather in the weekend was totally wintery, with lots of rain, plants have started to grow new leafs welcoming the new season! I can finally start working with brighter yarn colors, I especially like pink shades lately!:) It is also time to start working on some Easter projects! I am so excited for this new season and I can't wait to show you on what I have been working on!:)

Happy Monday to all! March is finally here, meaning spring is just around the corner! This Yarn Over List definitely has a springish color theme; one of my recent new favorite shades, coral! When I spotted this amazing crochet coral dress of Margosha_B I immediately fell in love with it! So girly and elegant!
Today is a national holiday over here, so everything is closed! We embraced this opportunity and arranged to meet up with some friends!:) Here's a sneak of what I have been working on the last few days! I really enjoyed making this project as it involved one of my new favorite stitches the popcorn stitch! I love the texture it creates, plus you can totally personalise it as you can work it with almost any stitch you desire, hdc, dc or tr! Yay for popcorn stitch!:) I will be sharing more on this project later on!
What have you been up to? Are you also excited about spring?
Enjoy the rest of your Monday!

Snapshots of our trip to Vienna! Amazing coffee, lots of chocolate and lovely fruit stalls on the local market!
Lovely purple shades!
Have I mentioned that I now have a wool winder? So much fun!

Working on something new!
Last week, we took a small vacation and visited Vienna! I love this city! We had the best time visiting the sunny city with it's baroque style! When we flew back home I kept looking at the photos of the trip! I loved everything, the great coffee, the chocolate shops all around Vienna, the delicious food, and the local market with it's bright stalls and colors! These are just a few photos I took but I think they capture the whole spirit!:)
Crochet related, I am spending my time browsing through magazines and books for spring inspiration! Winter is slowly fading away and sunny days keep making their appearance! I really love using my new wool winder! It's so fun to use and my yarn seems organized! It is also pretty neat to store!:)
The last picture is from my new project! It uses a very interesting stitch that I have fallen in love with! I will be sharing more on that very soon!
I hope you had a great week too! What are you up to?

Happy Monday to all! I am utterly smitten with Jeanette's Ipad case! Lovely colors combined beautifully together and a touch of texture from the crocheted bobble stitches! Simply unique and adorable!
Spring has definitely made it's appearance over here! Most days are sunny and it's quite pleasant to be outside! My crochet has taken a turn into using more bright shades of yarn and I have already started dreaming about spring and summer projects! :)
I am also working on a amigurumi project which employs the use of a very interesting and unique yarn! I will be sharing more on that really soon!
I hope you enjoyed the weekend! What were you up to?
Enjoy the rest of the day!
