Just taking a break

With a pot of peppermint tea
and some free time
to enjoy
a little creative hooking!

my favourite stork scissors
to cut off loose ends
and the feel of soft yarn under my fingers

I've crocheted a heart
just for you
until we meet again!

For crochet lovers, you can find the pattern for this heart:


  1. Gorgeous Sandra ...I love the colours you chose and the extra round...is that reverse single crochet ?? Whatever it is it looks great :0)

    1. Yes, reverse single crochet around the edge, sometimes called crab stitch! Thanks for your visit here and especially for the lovely heart pattern!

  2. Very pretty, a string of these as bunting would look cute!

  3. Nice work Sandra...... you are very creative.

    wish you a nice break.....see you later.

    warm greetings, Joop

  4. Just have to say I LOVE your teapot - so lovely!!!
    Your crochet looks lovely too - that is something I have never managed to do. I've done some knitting but could never master the crochet.
    I hope you have a nice break and look forward to when you come back. Take care!! :)

  5. So pretty. Love that colour combination. I am the most hopeless crocheter but that little heart is so pretty it almost makes me want to give it another go. Happy Thursday. :)

  6. Hi Sandra,

    I love your photos today.

    I want your teapot,
    your stork scissors
    and your wonderful wonderful crochet mat.

    I would love to have some of your talent
    but it skipped me.....

    Have a great week

  7. Sandra, these photos are simply so calming, and I just LOVE those scissors! :-)
    I cannot tell you the number of times I have tried to teach myself to crochet.
    Just seem to have some sort of brain block with it, as I end up with more knots than I can count!!
    You have a wonderful weekend, my friend.

  8. How fun to see your crochet work in progress, Sandra. And to think I have that very same pair of stork scissors! LOVE them! Your teapot colors are too fun, which makes enjoying a cup of tea fun as well. Enjoy your holiday!!

  9. What a lovely post....the colors are great and your work is so pretty! Those scissors are a work of art in themselves! Happy travels!

  10. Really pretty and perfectly done!

  11. I LOVE the colors you chose! Your pictures with your tea and scissors are great! I love crocheting with a cup of tea (and a bamboo crochet hook too!!)!! Thanks for the link, I meant to bookmark that pattern when I saw it on Bunny Mummy, and I forgot!

  12. What a lovely heart! I love your teapot and cup, beautiful colors! I also have those same stork scissors!

  13. Thanks for the wonderful heart.
    Have a nice evening :)

  14. Beautiful photos, so peaceful. Love the wonderful heart, beautiful colors. Thanks so much, hope all is well with you ;)

  15. Very neat crochet and a pretty heart xxx

  16. Ooooo purple and yellow! One of my favourite colour combinations. The crab stitch edging really enhances this immaculate heart.
