Crochet Granny Caddy

Hello everyone

I would love to show you all my latest project. This is a crochet granny caddy I made. Here is the link to the pattern: https://www.zhaya.de/downloads/craftergranny_EN.pdf

I was not able to understand the way I was to make the apron, so I did my own thing. But you might not have any problem with it like I did.

GO ahead and make this wonderful project. I am so glad I made them, in fact I am making a 3rd one.

Hello to all my readers.

I am very bad at keeping up with the posting of pages. I have never been good at that. I am terrible with corresponding and that goes for emails to friends, letters, and answering messages on my phone.

Today I wanted to share with you a Facebook group I have started that allows all types of people to join who do any type of handcraft. There is no limit to who can join and there is no catch.

All of those who knit, crochet, sew, paint, do carpentry, beading, decoupage, and/or draw can join. There are so many other handcrafts that I have not listed who may join too. I wanted to get away from the ‘knitters only’ or ‘crocheter only’ groups. It is time that all crafts mix.

Come join us, we need you.

I hope you will join.

Thank you all.

Mug Cozies

Are you not tired of your cup of hot beverage cooling down too quickly? Well, I am tired of that happening to my cup of goodness. So I thought about it and realized teapots have cozies for that very problem, why not make a cozy for my cup?

Here is a pattern I wrote up and I have been making these and selling them faster than I can make them. Hope you like the pattern. (I don’t usually write up patterns for others to use. So I hope you can understand the instructions.)

Basic Mug Cozy

Hook: 3.5mm

Wool: suitable for the hook

 

Pattern:

Ch46 sts.

In second ch from hook, hdc, and in remaining chs, hdc.

Ch2, Hdc across all sts for 12 rows.

13th Row: ch 17, hdc across.

Finish off.

I used the basic cozy and added different finishes to the basic base.

 

Me and My colours

pexels-photo-990829.jpeg

I love colours. They are everywhere. I can’t imagine a world without colour. 

Flowers, fabrics, cars and so much more.

Though there are so many colours, not every living organism can see the colours. Colour blind persons are limited to how their eyes perceive colour. Bees and other insects can’t see colour like we do.

Blue

My favourite colour is blue. Why blue? Here is why… I find it a calming colour. It reminds me of the ocean, sky and pools.

Blue is associated with depth and stability. It is a colour that symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Blue has medical benefits for the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect. Blue is strongly associated with tranquility and calmness. In heraldry, blue is used to symbolize piety and sincerity. Avoid using blue when cooking or on food displays as it suppresses appetite. 

Another colour I like is purple

Here is why:

Purple

The colour purple makes me feel creative with a hint of mystery. I find that it mixes well with blue as it carries my cool, calm and relaxed theme.

Purple has been associated with royalty as it symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, ambition, wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.

Purple can evoke feelings of romance, gloom and sad feelings. For some people it can cause them to become frustrated.

 

It is not a colour for everyone, but for me it is a perfect colour.

 

What are your favourite colours? You can have more than 1 – I know it is hard to decide as you have such a large selection to choose from. But comment below with yours, I am interested to find out who shares similar colours to me.

 

YouTube Time

Where you able to understand what I was trying to explain and show? What other stitches would you like to learn? I am open to suggestions.

Enjoy!!!!!

Rose Tea Benefits

Roses are so lovely to look at. Their aromatic fragrance is a delight to our noses. But they also have many benefits for our health.

The benefits of rose tea:

Roses contain vitamin C, malic acid, pectin and citric acid. This makes roses a safe diuretic and it is perfect for those on a weigh-less journey. Just drink the tea throughout the day.

Rose petals are an ideal home cure for various skin conditions including acne as they contain antiseptic, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties.

Washing your face with rose tea helps to keep your skin soft, tightened and hydrated. Thus making it great for reducing wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps to clear blemishes and dark circles. Rose tea is wonderful for premature ageing as the antioxidants delay the free radicals from damaging our skin.

Rose tea is also an effective anti-allergen. It helps with skin prone to rashes and allergies. And it helps to heal sun damaged skin over time.

Rose tea is great for women who suffer from heavy periods with intense pain. They can  take the tea to help with the pain and reduce the blood flow. You make this tea with 2 cups of warm water and black pepper powder and honey. It is also a good home remedy for infertility and irregular periods.

Regular drinking of rose tea can boost the immune system due to the vitamin C content it contains. And it is great to have a cup of the rose tea when you have a sore throat or cold.

 

Rose tea is a natural laxative and this aids in constipation and it is just as efficient as a diarrhea cure. It is effective for those who have liver conditions. Rose tea helps the intestines to expel waste from the gut and it nourishes the gastric mucosa making it suitable to encourage good bacteria growth.

By drinking 2 to 3 cups of rose tea has been known to cure urinary tract infections. Just remember to crush the rose petals when you make this tea.

Roses are a natural stress reliever. It balances the stress and emotional hormones.

 

 

Roses

These roses are so lovely! The colours are amazing. Who would’ve thought that flowers can have such sharp thorns and yet look so delicate and beautiful?

These flowers were made like this by God for a reason. Why they have the sharp and painful with the bright happy colours, only God will know.

We are blessed to have such beauty to enjoy and treasure. Life is hard and painful at times, but there is always something positive amongst it all.

2018 temperature blanket

dav

This year for my temperature blanket, I am doing weekly blocks. This way it is easier to carry with me and I like making blocks. Also as there are 52 weeks in the year which won’t work for a blanket, I am going to add another 2 blocks for Easter and Christmas. That will be a perfect number to make a nice sized blanket.

I have 5 weeks done in the picture, a bit behind in weeks, and I am going to add a white boarder around each one. And I am going to use the join-as-you-go method.

I will post a picture of a completed block as soon as I have done one.
