April / Aprile

April, come she will,
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain...

Don't you just love the coming of Springtime? The Nature comes back to life almost suddendly, and year after year I'm struck by the amazingness all around me.
I wish you all to enjoy this wonderful season, with lots of new strength and creative inputs!

Non amate l'arrivo della Primavera? La Natura torna alla vita quasi all'improvviso, e anno dopo anno resto senza parole di fronte allo spettacolo che offre.
Vi auguro di godervi questa stagione meravigliosa, con nuova forza e stimoli creativi!

Oh, and if you don't know the song from which the two verses above come from, please, enjoy!

Oh, e se non conoscete la canzone da cui provengono i due versi dell'inizio del post, ascoltatela...


  1. Beautiful flower!
    Happy Spring!:*

  2. Io adoro la Primavera :è la mia stagione preferita e ogni anno cerco di godermi il più possibile il miracolo della natura che si risveglia.Felice Primavera e Buona Pasqua a te,Valentina!

  5. La natura che si risveglia mette tanta felicità e speranza!!!Un grosso bacione!!

  6. Oh I love spring, too! Flowers and green everywhere, singing birds... so many positive vibes, wonderful ♥. Happy Spring to you!!

  7. Con la bellezza dei colori e del fiore stesso auguro anche a te una nuova forza e tanta creatività ....Sereno week end

  8. Spring is a lovely time of year. And I can't imagine spring not happening in April - it must be very strange in the southern hemisphere to have spring in September.

  9. I was just thinking this morning that I should remind myself, on the gloomiest days of winter, that the beautiful colours, scents and sounds of Spring are worth the wait!
    It certainly gets my imagination germinating!
    Hope you are enjoying some of the delights too!

  10. Ieri sera annusavo l'aria, profumava di erba scaldata dal sole. Io amo questa stagione.

100th post!

Hello everyone! I'm always pretty absent from my blog, I know. The Turn of the Wheel between October and November has brought back my creative inspiration and made it stronger than ever, so I've been incredibly busy with hooks and wools! : )  To celebrate my blog's 100th post I decided to share with you my latest finished project, a stole/scarf I made for Mum as a Xmas gift. I found this wool at a local market and chose the color with my boyfriend, as the gift is meant to be from the both of us. For those of you who may be interested, yarn is "Tosca Light" by Lang Yarns, shade 0048 "Altrosa". Craft on the other hand is once again Tunisian crochet, with whom I'm totally in love, and pattern is called "Sillabub", by great designer MariaGrazia Berno (check out some of  her others here). Since I still think of myself as a newbie regarding this technique I'm incredibly satisfied with its look - and the feel, oh, if I could tell you how sof…

Tunisian crochet hooks, pt. 1 / Uncinetti tunisini, parte 1

When it comes to Tunisian crochet, one of the first issues people face is: which hooks should I choose? I decided to write about my own experience in 2 or 3 posts, and hopefully help some of you. When I first wanted to try Tunisian crochet, I only had a couple of long hooks at home, and they were definitely too thin for a newbie, like 2,5 mm or such. So I headed to a local store and bought me a nice 5 mm one. It was the classic long, straight aluminium hook with a plastic stopper at one end and a pretty rounded tip at the other end, branded Pony. I practiced a bit with it, and I struggled because of the rounded tip. I didn't give up, though: I purchased some bigger sizes by the same brand, which were double-ended and all plasticI couldn't use those to save my life. The yarn didn't glide on them, and using them hurt my wrist terribly. Silly newbie I was, I blamed it all on the technique itself and took a pause from it, even though I did enjoy it. Too painful. Keep in min…
