In dottie angels first book, I found the pattern for the 'Happy hanger'. Since I used padded hangers, I had to double the pattern, hence extra happy hangers.... The first one got a picot edging as well.

In this post, I had just started this blanket...and now, only three and a half months later I have already finished it!
I really loved working on this blanket. The Merino wool is so soft and warm for your hands to work with. Especially toward the end of making this blanket, it was a joy to work on, cuddled up underneath the part that I'd already finished....and now it is big enough to fit our double bed.
I was inspired to make this blanket by Monique, when I saw her blanket from the same pattern. I used the full pattern though and she only used a part of it.
The colours where inspired by Cecile Franconie who uses a lot of naturals combined with colours.

Today Grietje has posted her 6th petit four and it's yummy again. The 'moorkop', which this weeks petit four is a miniature version of, is a special Dutch treat: puffy pastry filled with whipped cream and covered in thick, rich chocolate icing. The petit four has some extra whipped cream and a chocolate biscuit roll on top. So this is what my petit four collection looks like now:
Wishing you all a very happy weekend,

I just couldn't wait making this weeks Petit Four from Grietje Karwietjes blog....it's soooo cute and yummy! So I started right away and now my tray is filled with five crocheted petit fours:
For all of you wanting to join in, you will find the pattern here (both in Dutch and in English), have fun!
Wishing you all a very happy weekend,Hasta luego!
Just in time for the new pattern, I finished the fourth Petit Four in Grietje Karwietjes Petit Four Crochet Along....just a lack of time, because it was yummy again: a Banana Chocolate Petit Four with chocolate sprinkles on top. Because I wanted to make all my petit fours from yarn only, I altered the topping (I didn't want to make the same sprinkles as last week...) and added a bit of cream and a little chocolate:
I used to love these little lacy chocolates when I was a little girl and was always hoping that my piece of the cake would have one....
I'm off now...crocheting this weeks petit four!

A lot of hooky people are looking forward to friday more than ever since Grietjes 'Petit Four Crochet Along' and I'm defenitely one of them! It's always a very pleasant surprise to see what she came up with. This week she gives us the recipe...eeeeh.....pattern for a Mint Quark Petit Four with little candy sprinkles on top. In the original pattern there are a felt tag and sprinkles made from little beads, but I always prefer to crochet everything. And I have to say I'm quite happy how it turned out:
Wishing you all a very happy weekend! I'm off to prepare the Landrover for the next guests.....can't crochet all day...:(

Living in the South of Spain where the sun is shining most of the days throughout the year, you can come upon a 'strange' scene like this in october:
This is a 'Granny tissuebox cover' I have just finished as the last piece in an order. The colours aren't very true in this picture, but I have already send it of to it's new owner:
I used Michelle Kludas' pattern that is available for free on her lovely blog The Royal Sisters. And added some free style flowers to it and a clean and simple edging.
