He is 12 inches tall and likes to go easter egg hunting, when he is not playing with kids he loves to just sit down in their bed waiting for bedtime so he can have a cuddle with his favourite person in the world!

The Easter bunny amigurumi pattern is the very first pattern in my shop! I will be away next week but I promised I will be updating the shop with all my items.

I wish you all a love Easter break!

I have been wanting to make some crochet jewellery for some time, I started with pearls and beads and played with the idea of ‘soft jewellery’, I have not finished any designs myself, (the creative process can be very frustrating sometimes!) but I thought of sharing with you some of the artists who are making quite remarkable pieces!

First one designer I have followed for a long time! Margot and me is a German designer making the most amazing crocheted necklaces and other pieces

Is this being fitter?

zumba tm

At the end of last year I wrote a piece about my wishes and hopes for this year, on that post I wrote about what is it that I wanted to achieved this year, one of the things listed there was getting fitter and healthier. Okay today I went to the Hospital to get some tests done, I have not been feeling well for almost a month and half, the doctor suspected pneumonia and he sent me to get my heart checked (ECG), a chest X-ray, some blood test… I have finished my treatment now I am feeling a lot better but what shocked me was the result of my ECG, it turns out I have a resting heart rate of 50 bmp, I will be 45 next week so with all the training, dancing, gym going and healthy eating this resting heart rate puts me into the athlete category!… who?… me?

I have still to go back to the doctors and check all the results, the radiographer saw the dark cloud over my head and with my results in her hand she put her hand on my shoulder and said: “don’t worry you are all right”!. I am feeling really positive about the future, I have never felt this strong in my live!, nor have I ever enjoy working out in the gym so much!, I just wish I could talk to my 25-year-old-self and tell me to get on with it!, to enjoy the getting sweaty, breathless and red faced… and enjoy the adrenaline, and love the feeling after a great workout, and even love the muscle soreness the following day as it is all part of the same journey!

I want to share with you what we all do as a family to keep us all healthy and strong, if you are on my side of forty and have never really done much exercise I just wanted to inspire you, don’t think you have to ‘get old’ and assumed all those pains and aches are part of getting old, I didn’t!… I don’t! yes, of course we are chronologically getting older and thank God for that! think about the alternative… it is ‘not’ be 45, not reaching there! I want to be older, I want to live all the years that belong to me but I want to enjoy them, proper live them!

I promise to allow sometime to talk to you about our routines and how we exercise as a family and how we eat, for now I just wanted to share this video zumba as it was dancing that got me moving!

Check out their official website zumba

I wish you a very happy and healthy weekend!

Frozen inspired olive oil birthday cakes (Yes we are still stuck in Frozen!)

Happy Monday all!

My girls birthday party was this last Saturday, I cannot believe they are 6!, it is a bit sad that I definitely don’t have babies anymore!

Anyway, they wanted a Frozen party, yes! again! I cannot wait for Disney to come up with something else! please do!. They were all dressed up like Elsa (again), with the dresses I made last year!, these dresses have been to soooooo many Frozen (and not Frozen related parties!), they have even been in a party with bouncy castles and trampolines! seriously they have been the £5.75 most bestest expend in my kids EVER! I made these dresses and I wrote a tutorial.

I made these cakes for them, they were delicious! not seriously! really good!, I am not the best baker so I was soooo happy with them!, they were 17 kids, so there was a lot of cake left… they were… sadly done by last night!

Still! winter triangle crochet pattern

Yes STILL!, it seems to be taking forever!, I know I cannot complain too much as in many parts of the glove there has been lots of snow and a very mean winter… it is raining in London (like that is news!) and it is a very missable day… being from Tenerife I have learnt to really enjoy the sunny days you get here because they will not last!, I have to say tho if London had Tenerife’s weather… I would never got anything done! :)

Having said all of that, I kind of love London’s moody days, the days that you just want to sit by a window with a steamy hot coffee and just get on with work, I get quite inspired and since I cannot go for a walk I get productive! presenting: It-is-still-winter-shawl!

Hi all,

I have been wanting to make this photo tutorial for a long time, I wanted to show how easy is to make something really pretty and useful when you only starting to crochet, this cute crochet purse will make a great present for little girls, you will only need a few yards of each colour as well, so it is a great pattern for reducing your hidden stash!

LuzPatterns.com Free crochet purse pattern 01

LuzPatterns.com Free crochet purse pattern 02

Materials and notions:

I used a few colours of Drops Design cotton light

I used a smaller hook only a F (3.5mm) to make the fabric denser so I won’t need it to line it.

a 4 inch zipper

tapestry needle

matching sewing thread and needle

three wooden beads

Size:

4 inches in diameter (10 cm)

Abbreviations:

ch = chain

sc = single crochet

hdc = half double crochet

Purse Pattern:

Pattern note: the first ch2 of the round counts as the first st. Make the following crochet granny twice.

Round 1: ch2 and make 8sc on the second ch from the hook, and join with sl st to the first st, on this picture below you can see I have already pull the next colour as I am doing the sl st, I makes the changing colours a bit neater.

LuzPatterns.com Free crochet purse pattern 9 I stopped here but if you would like to make a bigger purse just add a few more rounds incrementing.

Once you have both parts of the purse, weave in any loose ends, using matching thread (do as I say not as I do!), start sewing the zipper, going around as you sew

LuzPatterns.com Free crochet purse pattern 10 LuzPatterns.com Free crochet purse pattern 11

Do the same with the other side

LuzPatterns.com Free crochet purse pattern 12

Now, this is very important! OPEN YOUR ZIPPER!, seriously open it! otherwise you will have a closed purse and you won’t be able to turn it and put your monies in it!, You can now use either the sewing thread or matching yarn and tapestry needle to close the rest of the bag, turn the bag (see!) and you are done!

LuzPatterns.com Free crochet purse pattern 13

To make the zipper pull, fold a length of yarn and pass it through the zipper eye and make a knot,

LuzPatterns.com Free crochet purse pattern 14

Thread the needle and pass through the beads, make a big knot to she beads don’t come off and cut the yarn.

And you are done!, fancy having this pattern on your library? no problems! you can download the pdf on Raverly and Craftsy
