Fimo buttons

I finished my daughter's scarf and I observed that I don't have a red button.
This was a big problem because the button makes the difference between her scarf and any other scarf.
I have a lot of buttons but none red.

What a tragedy! :)
I was upset and I bought fimo yesterday.
Today I made fimo buttons.

I didn't make many buttons, I need only one.
I must go to the kitchen now....
I have to cook something for tonight.
Any ideas?
Be happy!

My childhood's paintings

Last week my mother gave me some paintings I made when I was seven years old.
I was astonished by my aptitude at that time.
I'm so happy that she kept some of them.

This is me in my vision

And here is my father thinking to his princess

I'm looking to these paintings and I see flowers. :)
It seems that I always was like now.
It was so nice to see them now.
I wanted to share them with you.
I hope you like them, too.
Have a lovely weekend!

Crocheted hat pattern

My daughet's hat is ready.
I finished it yesterday but I didn't have time to make pictures and the pattern.
We love this hat. And my daughter looks so nice nice with it!
I put the flower and a button and the hat is ready:

You continue the pattern till the hat is ready.
I started a scarf in the same color with the hat now.
I'll show you when it will be ready.
Have a nice day!

Crocheted flower

The Autumn is almost here and I ascertained that my daughter's clothes are smaller.
I must make hats, tunics, sweaters and so on.
I started with a white hat.
I crocheted a red flower to put on the hat.
Today I'll show you the flower and how I made it.
These days I hope I will finish the hat and I'll put the hat and the pattern.
For the moment this is the flower:

I took her a red coat. The white hat with a red flower will be perfect for her coat.
I'll show you next time.
Have a lovely day!
And don't forget: life is beautiful.

Crocheted Camomile Pattern

I tried to make some camomile.
I used my imagination and I didn't respect the colors.
This is what I achieved:

Row 1: make 2 chains, 5 slip stitch in the first chain, join with a slip stitch
Row 2: 1 chain; 2 slip stitch in each slip stitch from row 1, join with a slip stitch
Row 3: 1 chain; 2 slip stitch, 1 slip stitch, repeat
Row 4: 1 chain; 2 slip stitch, 1 slip stitch, 1 slip stitch; repeat
Row 5: 1 chain; 2 slip stitch, 1 slip stitch, 1 slip stitch, 1 slip stitch; repeat
Row 6: 3 chains, 2 treble crochet in the next slip stitch, 1 slip stitch; repeat from the beginning

All these flowers will be broaches.
I'll show you when they will be ready.
Have a lovely day!

Avocado face mask

Mark Twain said:

 "When your friends begin to flatter you on how young you look, it's a sure sign you're getting old."

- 1 avocado
- 1 spoon of lemon juice
- 1 egg

Mash the avocado, mix with the lemon juice and the egg.
Apply to the face.
After 15 minutes rinse off with luke-warm water.

Have a nice day!
