April SAL with Helene

Hello readers!

I am very late this month for the SAL I participate in, over at Helene et Mahalia. But I finally finished! yay! I’m probably going to get straight onto May and finally catch up by the end of the month (it should be easier too once the ripple blanket is finished).

Anyway, here it is! It’s super cute as usual, and this last month was a mama bear and her cub 🙂 so lovely!

I will turn this into another ornament for my collection 🙂

A bit of a roundup 

Happy Friday lovely readers!

What a week! And I can’t believe it’s already the end of April, which means that a third of the year has already gone by. I thought that this called for a roundup on my year so far. I have been bad and actually have more wips than when I started the year, with only one project that I finished from my previous wips 🙊 oh well!

So currently I have 4 big projects on my hooks, with one other (it’s a secret!) to be added this weekend (but hopefully a finish as well!)

  • The LOTR blanket, which I haven’t touched in a week
  • My Mandala Madness, which I haven’t touched either in some time (but I’m planning on doing some over the weekend)
  • My virus shawl, I’m actually doing well on this, I’m mostly hooking it on the car when it’s not my day to drive (we alternate with my husband)
  • The beautiful shells baby blanket, which I absolutely need to finish by Sunday (no pressure!)

Then on my hoops I have only two projects, but one is actually an ongoing thing over the year

And I also have socks to knit!

Thankfully I also had plenty of finished projects in the last 4 months, here are the photos to prove it!

I wish you all a beautiful weekend, here we have Monday off for Labour day and you know what that means: more crochet time for me! Yay!

March SAL with Helene

Happy Friday!

Once again I am joining in Helene’s Stitch along on her blog Helene et Mahelia.

This month’s design is another forest critter, a little robin! This month was super quick to stitch, and I turned this birdie into another cute ornament.

Have a great weekend!

February SAL with Helene

Hello readers!

I just realised that I forgot to post yesterday evening! Whoops 😬 

February is over and so far I’m managing to keep up with the SAL from Hélène et Mahélia

Here is my February month, those little foxes are just too cute!


And I’ve also made a little ornament to go with my owl one. I will be crocheting a link to put all this year’s ornaments on and make a bunting with all those cute little forest critters 🙂


Until next time!

December SAL with Helene 

Hello readers!

That’s it! I’ve finally stitched all the 2016 designs organised by Helene. Now I need to get my fabrics organised and get sewing, to make my nana a quilt with all the finished cross stitch pieces. 


Better get that sewing machine warmed up!

2016 Cross Stitch Projects

2016crossstitch

Happy Friday!

As promised, today is part 2 of my 2016 roundup: my finished cross stitch projects.

In total, I have finished 20 cross stitch projects last year, 10 from Helene et Mahelia SALs, 2 Christmas gift bags, 1 wedding album cover, 1 ornament, 1 pair of earrings, 1 table centre, 1 bookmark, 1 Ravenclaw shield, 1 hoop art and my big PokeAlphabet.

That’s a few less than the crochet projects but it’s still pretty good. I have also a few started projects for this year, like the Joyful World from Snowflower diaries, which I hope to finish this year 🙂

Have a great weekend!

November SAL with Helene 

Happy Friday!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I participate in mystery SALs organised by Helene on her site Helene et Mahelia. I have actually had this finished for a while but didn’t get the time to show it to you with all the Christmas/New Years madness. 


I’ve already signed up for the SALs next year but I need to finish the December design first (hopefully by the end of January). I seem to be a bit stitched out at the moment but I hope I get my motivation back soon 🙂

October SAL with Helene

Happy Monday! 

Last months SAL was pretty long but it looks amazing. With winter on its way in Europe, where Helene is based, the October design seems perfect. 



Now, onto November!

September SAL with Helene

Hello everyone! 

I’ve caught up with the SALs! Yeah! Now I just need to stay motivated and keep going but it shouldn’t be too hard with all the beautiful designs she has in stock for us!  

So here is September, we have been enjoying vines and very nice autumn colours. 


Those grapes took me so long to outline but the final effect is gorgeous don’t you think?
