Hello…. Sharing with you moments of “Crochet Creative Workshop” last Saturday at Dias de aromas.
It was a sunny afternoon, perfect for the farm tour, to know more about the biologic aromatics herbs that Laura cultivates with all the care!
A delicious tea cup and crochet completed the afternoon!
Hope that we could repeat the same scenery soon!!!
Em breves palavras: “Alguns momentos do workshop “Crochet Criativo” do passado sábado, na Dias de aromas.
Este uma tarde ensolarada, perfeita para o passeio de para conhecer a quinta a ficar a saber mais sobre as ervas aromáticas biológicas que Laura cultiva com todo o cuidado!
Uma deliciosa xícara de chá e crochê completou a tarde!
Espero que possamos repetir em breve !!! Boa semana!”
Since crochet has become part of my life I’ve started to seeking information about it (blogs, magazines, books, etc) … patterns, stitch, yarns, hooks, etc…. but the information that surprised me (at least in the begging, because in the meanwhile, I’ve figured it out by my self) was that crochet is good for your health! Yes it’s true!
Crochet provides a number of invaluable health benefits that help prevent and manage stress, pain and depression, which in turn strengthens the body’s immune system. Surprised ?! Try it!! :)
Just good reasons to learn or re-start to do crochet! And crochet is versatile! Check out some of ideas of what can be done with crochet technique!
Em poucas palavras:
Olá! Desde que o crochet se tornou parte da minha vida eu comecei a procurar cada vez mais informação, em blogs, revistas, livros, etc … procuro novos padrões, pontos, diferentes linhas e lãs, agulhas, etc …. entre toda a informação que fui encontrando e “absorvendo” a que me surpreendeu (pelo menos no início) foi que ocrochet é bom para sua saúde! Estranho, certo!! Mas verdade!
Crochet oferece uma série de benefícios a nossa saúde, tais como, ajuda a prevenir e gerir o stress, dor e depressão, que por sua vez reforça o sistema imunológico do corpo. Surpreendido?! Experimente!!
Hi gorgeous…. Has passed some time since the last post…. my mistake! Busy with so many other things ….. anyway…here I am! :)
White Sheep has a new clutch/purse for the Spring/Summer collection (my boldness…using the expression “new collection”…).
Versatility is one characteristic that describes the White Sheep products; Always when a new product is “designed and planned”… is to be worn knowing it’s handmade using sustainable materials and traditional style while serving as a versatile statement-making accessory.
Very handy and stylish… Small and elegant, suitable for daily or evening occasions. It’s a sure eye-catcher, with his metal chain handle.
Enjoy your week…. coming soon with more news….
Thanks for visiting! :)
Em poucas palavras….
Olá a todos… depois de algum tempo afastada… regresso hoje para vos dar a conhecer um novo produto da nova colecção Primavera/Verão (desculpem-me a ousadia de usar a expressão “nova coleção” …)
Desde ontem, disponível em na loja online. Muito prático e elegante … é uma carteira versatil, adequada para usar de dia ou de noite.
Until now, White Sheep has been full dedicated to crochet projects…. I feel that is a time of changing something around here… let’s see what happen….
So, first of all, if you are a regular reader, or if you are not really sure how you clicked onto this blog a moment ago–thank you. Readers make this blog a million times more rewarding and you simply cannot imagine how grateful I am that you take the time to check in here from time to time.
I got bit crazy if I have to stay in the house all day. As a mum of two princesses, a spectacular & entirely unique renovated Palace sounds perfect for a Sunday afternoon walk.
The weather by me has been rather mild, with lovely sunny and warm afternoons… I couldn’t have dream’t up a more perfect!!!
If you visit Algarve… try not miss it…. Estoi Palace. When we walk in the beautiful and bright rooms, feels like the time go back a couple of centuries….!!
Thank you for visiting, see you again!!!
PS: Its a fact… everywhere I go, I take one of my crochet projects with me…. one day a friend said “I can’t believe you have your hook and ball of yarn with you?” …. Yes I’d them!…. I’m such a huge fan of crochet…yes… I always take my crochet projects along with me ….
Em poucas palavras:
Sinto que chegou o momento de mudar… White Sheep torna-se num espaço para divulgar os projectos de crochet e muito mais….
Obrigada por continuar desse lado e ajudar e tornar este projecto um milhão de vezes mais gratificante!
Sou mãe de duas princesas e nada melhor que aproveitar estas lindas tardes de sol quente de inverno para dar um passeio num Palácio tão perto de casa. Foi o que fizemos num domingo. E foi fantástico!!!
Se visitar o algarve … não perca os jardins lindos do Palácio de Estoi.
Most of us know handmade when we see it. A knitted jumper, a patchwork quilt, crochet carpet ….. for many, the definition of handmade seems to be “Made in the main by ‘meaty hands’, not by ‘machinery hands’.” It’s a very literal definition. On dictionary I found this: ‘Made or prepared by hand rather than by machine’.
Fortunately, nowadays is the DIY and the handmade is trendy! More and more people are getting interested to buy and/or learn how to make things by hands.
Also, is more common to find shops selling handmade products…. also, online is possible to find a big range of shops offering beautifully handmade products.
When.. I started the workshops … it was born out of a desire to share knowledge and creativity,make craft accessible to as many people as possible and do something worthwhile.
I started in Finland and when I moved back to Portugal, I managed to keep doing it. I found a beautiful space, called “A Venda“; the atmosphere is cozy…. perfect for what I had in mind.
Remember what keeps you fulfilled! And trust your instinct: “we’ve done many things that seemed strange”, but I’ve been convinced they were the right things to do.
Em poucas palavras:
A maioria de nós sabe reconhecer um produto que é feito-á-mão quando a vemos. Um camisola em malha, uma colcha de retalhos, umas luvas em crochet
Felizmente, hoje em dia é o ‘faça você mesmo (DIY)’ e os produtos artesanais estão na moda! Mais e mais pessoas estão interessadas em comprar e/ou aprender a fazer!
Além disso, é mais comum encontrar lojas físicas ou online que vendem produtos artesanais.
Quando eu comecei os workshops, foi com o desejo de compartilhar conhecimento e criatividade, fazer artesanato acessível ao maior número de pessoas possível, e ensinar a fazer produtos úteis.
