Hello friends, how was January for you? It wasn’t easy for me, but that’s not a reason to be discouraged, is it? It's time to recharge yourself with the richness of color and start crocheting nice things. For example, cute spiral hearts, a sunny mug coaster for the office, and even a couple of bright mini rugs for a dollhouse ordered by my niece. Now I’ll tell you about everything in more detail and share useful links. What if you also want to lift your mood with color therapy?

I had a skein of Papatya Batik rainbow acrylic yarn in my stash and for a long time I couldn’t find a place for it. First, I made a nice circle motif that became a coaster for my office mug (you'll find a link below in this post).
Then my cousin Ksenya and her daughter Olya came to visit me. Olya saw the skein and immediately asked to create someting for her — a mini rug for her dollhouse. I just started a sample to test Papatya Batik and was approximately the needed size, just a bit wider than necessary. I decided to keep it and make one more piece in size requested by Olya. So two rugs will go soon to their new owner, I just need to secure the ends on one of them.
And the other day I came across an interesting simple crochet motif — a spiral heart, I even wrote a separate note (see the link below in this post). I think colour sections of Papatya Batik yarn lay on it very well. I made seven hearts quickly, in less than an hour and a half. The size of the finished motif is 5.5 cm by 5.5 cm (hook 3.5 mm). Maybe I’ll use it as an applique or a mini-gift for someone in Valentine's day. Or maybe I’ll attach some of the hearts to Olya’s rugs as a decoration, I think they should look good on it.
Below in the video I'm showing all mini projects and giving the comments in Russian you've already read in the post. I'm also showing my next mini project that I'm planning to share with you soon. Will you try to guess what would it be?
And here are the links I promised to you earlier:
- Simple round crochet motif «Bright Sun» (in Russian)
- Crochet motif «Spiral hearts» (the post is in Russian but includes links to video tutorials in English and Spanish)
- More information about Papatya Batik yarn on the manufacturer’s website kamgarn.com (in English)
I'll share two more pictures of my spiral hearts. I love to do color therapy, especially in Winter, when the sun doesn’t show up and it's pretty dull outside and you really want to be warm and positive.
As always, I wish you all good luck with your new projects.
See you soon!
