I HAVE DISCOVERED THE FUN ABOUT "PINREST"!

A time-eating place to be!
This is a pin-board place, where people pin interesting stuff they find
on the net, and  share it by pinning and repining.
See my boards here, and start pinning yourself, it's a lot of fun!
And best, you don't fill up your pc with  tons of images!

SOPHIE AND ME IN THE GARDEN STUDIO, WORKING!

New project on the hook!
When I'm between patterns, nothing much is happening on my blog. Meaning also that I'm working with some kind of project! At the moment Sophie and me are making our selves comfy in the garden, with anything we need to work. A new summer dress is on the hook, and super-simple one-piece indoor-shoes. 
That's the blessing with crocheting; you can work anywhere! And outside in the summer is the best!
As you can see, I've got myself a brand new laptop. I was so tiered of being tucked away in my indoor studio on lovely summer days, working with patterns. So a laptop would do it. I've never had a laptop before. One thing I didn't take in consideration, was that it's talking to me in Italian (Italian programmed), which I can handle. But I was SOOO disappointed of the shiny, mirror-like screen! It's not possible to see a thing as long as it's day light. I've tried any possible cover-up and cover-over; what I see is myself and the surroundings behind me! Grrrrrrrr!! It's really frustrating! The brains inventing this fabulous indoor-and-night-working-screen must be men! Anyone have a solution??
For the rest everything is fine!
Best,
Sophie and Me!

CROCHET BUTTON FOR SOPHIE'S NEW BAG

Can't find a suitable button in your collection?
Make your own!
I'm working with a crochet bag for Sophie's Grey Granny Square dress,
and couldn't find a button for closing it.
I had a bunch of the middle-circles of the Granny Squares, put 2 together,
worked 1 round with white, finished with grey, and there it is,
the perfect button!
The bag pattern is coming up soon, so is the beanie hat!

WE HAD A VISIT TO NORTH ITALY...YES, THE EARTHQUAKE PLACE!

Just a little shaking, as we where miles from the center.
The beautiful Garda Lake

Romantic small streets

By the lake

Marostica, a Middle-Age city, right on the foot of the Alpes.
We came here on the celebration of The Cherries Day!
