Poisson Galet

Mis vacaciones en Bretaña han sido una impresionante fuente de inspiración a la hora de querer realizar nuevos proyectos de crochet relacionados con el mar. Allí, la mayoría de playas son rocosas y llenas de cantos rodados, "galets" en francés. Aunquen incómodos para estirarse con la toalla por encima, me encanta cogerlos, acariciarlos...es tan relajante!!. Objetos naturales, sencillos y minimalistas, a los que el mar ha dado su forma y textura y que me hicieron pensar en qué podía hacer incorporándolos al arte del ganchillo. Después de pensar y buscar información y proyectos por Internet, se me ocurrió en primer lugar convertir estos "galets" en pececitos "possions". Así nació este nuevo proyecto que os presento: Poisson Galet. El primero, en uno de mis colores preferidos: azul marino. Aparte de ser un pececito muy simpático, el verlo evoca el mar, la playa, el verano....la Bretaña al fin y al cabo.


My holidays in Brittany have been an amazing source of inspiration when trying to make new crochet projects related to the sea. There, most beaches are rocky and full of round stones, "galets" in French. Although uncomfortable to stretch with a towel over them, I love to catch them, touch them ... it's so relaxing!. Natural objects, simple, minimalist, to which the sea have given their shape and texture and that made me think about what could be done with them by incorporating the art of crochet. After thinking and seeking information through Internet, I decided to turn these little "galets" in fishes "possions". That's the way my Poisson Galet was born. This one, in one of my favorite colors: dark blue. Besides being a very nice little fish, I think it evokes the sea, the beach, the summer....Brittany in fact!

Three Little Witches

When I found this amigurumi witch online in www.roxycraft.com , I was captivated by it. So simple and cute!. I could not help to buy the pattern on that website and try. The result was Iris. 



But she needed a friend, so I made Rosetta....


And afterwards... Bluebell was born


So, in just one weekend I made these three little witches. They are good witches and their smiling faces bring good luck !. A magical and amazing crocheted gift to give to friends, family, kids...everyone will fall in love with them!!!
