Too late for Easter preparation?

Thank you so much for all who left me kind comments on my doily and great tips for losing weight!!! *hugs* I hope you will forgive me for not replying to each of your comments... I'll repay you for trying to be a better blogger with more frequent posts, would that work? :)
Anyway, I decided not to worry too much about greatly reducing the amount and types of food I eat... Instead I choose to eat sensibly and a little less than I usually eat, and also I forgive myself if I eat a bit of sugary or greasy stuff. This way, I don't get angry, and it saves everyone around me!!! :D I still walk - not every morning but almost, and I started to see the effect of it... just really little around my waist, but it makes me so happy. :) I feel that I have a little more energy, and pushing around a heavy shopping cart (Shopping carts here are a lot bigger than the ones they use in Japan!) in grocery stores is not as annoying as it used to be because I can think of it as just additional calorie-burning exercise! I'll continue to walk in the morning and hopefully start seeing actual weight loss soon.


I am trying to find if there is anything I want to crochet for Easter. Easter is right around the corner so I need a quick project. As I always do when I look for free crochet patterns, I visited Crochet Pattern Central to find some cute Easter projects, and there they were! :) I think I'm going to try this, and... these are great too! I also fell in love with Crystal's Egg bunny babies. :) I'm probably not going to have time to make these bunnies, but some of you might like to try. ;)
There are so much I want to do and so little time!


By the way... LOTS of things are going on at Stitch Diva Studios... including the exciting Stunt Stitching opportunity! Check out the latest newsletter. ;)

I am glad that you already started your reducing weight program. Sometimes when you put some solution action on your problem, you will feel much better already.
And I love to see your post more often :)

It's me again. I just want to say congratulation that your snowflake bag is published in Crochet mag (jan edition). I just read the news from Mimi's blog :)

Happy to hear you go on enjoying walking because every change must be joyful and it must be something that takes time and it's going to be an everyday luxuray.

Nice weekend

A very simple skateboarder beanie

My hubby who skateboards had been asking me to make him a simple beanie.
He wanted "small stitches with thin yarn" for his beanie so I was thinking about knitting it with stockinette stitch and sportweight yarn... But I just didn't feel like knitting or using sportweight yarn so I just started crocheting it with single crochet stitches and rather thin worsted weight Caron's Simply Soft hoping that he would like it.


He didn't like it, he said he loved it and it was exactly like how he wanted it to be! :) He went to show the beanie to some of his skateboard buddies as soon as it was done, and that made me happy. :)

Check out other crocheters beanies made with this pattern on Ravelry!  
Anyways, I was relieved and thought maybe some of you may like to make one too. ;D
I used only chains and single crochet stitches.
I believe many of my visitors don't even need the pattern because it's really just basic hat pattern, and there may be similar one out t…

WIP - Tunisian crochet

Between other fun projects, I've been enjoying crocheting this Tunisian crochet piece so much!

The pattern I'm using is "Felted Entrelac Handbag" from Gourmet Crochet. Carolyn is one of my favorite crochet designers. I'm a big fan!
This one requires only a regular crochet hook because the rows are short, and it's just great.
I'm going to felt this after all the crocheting is done, and I can't wait. :) I believe I've never posted any felted project here before, but I did some felting last year, and I loved it. I think it's just perfect for bags.

This bag is such a quick project, and I'm hoping to finish it soon. :)
