Just stoped by very quickly to tell all of you that we are moving this week...
So you know what that involves, a lot of packing, a lot of sorting out on which items we should keep, some items to get rid of, a lot of cleaning and all the logistics that get involved in a moving...

So I haven't been able to do any crafting or stop here to write about anything...

Just wanted to let you know, and I'll be back when we are settled again!

Hope all of you are having a great time this summer!!!

See you soon!

Weekend of Earrings...

Hi all!!!
How are you? I hope you are great, enjoying the weather and your summer... specially if you are in vacations!
My weekend was very good and very relaxing... I still have a bit of migraine but I hope it'll go away soon! The good thing is that I recovered my natural crafty desire, that had gone with the headache...

And I'm again in an itchy-for-jewelry time... I don't know if that's the way to say it, but what I mean is that I want to make jewelry again... which is very good... I get periods out of any inspiration and I sit there with my supplies and just nothing comes out... but I'm back in it, for now! lets enjoy it!

So here is some of the earrings I made during the weekend...
See you soon!

Don't you HATE having a headache???

I hate it, hate it, hate it!!!!!!!!!!

I'd had migraines since I was a kid... they have get better through the years, but still got them.
This week has been a bit bad thanks to migraine...

I don't want to craft a lot...

See you soon!

New look for my blog!!!

Still experimenting with look changes... I did something that made the order of the main text in the posts and the lateral column shift sides, and now I can't find how to get it back to the way it was... I guess I'll have to keep looking... I'm not used to see it like this... but we'll see if it works!

I like the new look!

See you soon!


Today I made delicious Tiramisú for 50 people with a friend!!
It's for an Italian Dinner that we are having tomorrow night!
It looked good, very good, I hope it will be deli, delicious, yummy and mmmmm!!!

I'll try to post a picture later...

See you soon!

New look for my blog!!!

After looking around for a new look, I found this one at shabbyblogs.com
I like it a lot, and I think is more Me than the last look... so here we go now... I'll try to change some other details soon.

The Crochet Club

Ohhh! and now I'm thinking in some other things that I can tell you about!!!
Why this didn't happened a week ago so I wouldn't be away for so long??

Anyway, what I want to tell you about is that I found a group on Raverly about The Crochet Club...

It is a project to work on starting on January 2011. The Club creator is Janet Crowfoot  will send parcels to the members of the club with all the yarns, beads patterns and instruccions to work with, for 6 consecutive months... it's an Art Deco inspired project, and it can be used as a throw or a hanging...
All the info is in the blog, but it sounds like a great idea to me!!!
So I sent an email to the lady that is putting this together to register myself... Hope to be part of the club!!

I am tooooo excited!!!

See you soon!

Baby Grannies...

I haven't been here in a while... I didn't know what to share with you.
I had a great 4th of July weekend, with a cute parade of kids with decorated boxes (some were using them as a costume, some were pulling and some pushing, but they couldn't use wheels) and a lovely trip to the Farmers Market, but I forgot to bring my camera with me, so I was a bit mad at myself and a bit disapointed that I wasn't going to be able to share those things with you...

I bought a market bag on the Farmers Market, it's knitted... and although I usualy prefer not to buy things crocheted or knitted as I feel like I can make them, I was sold by this one, I am sure it's not thaaat complicated to make, but it's very lacy and I cannot imagine how to do that with knitting, just with crochet. And also, it was a very good deal comparing it to what would be to go and buy the yarn, and look for a pattern and make it...
Here it is...

I love it!!! now, here's a close up of the lacy texture...

Really, I can't imagine how to make that with knitting! but I'm in love with it...

I also had a nice 4th, with a concert downtown, performed by the city band, and then a lot of fireworks!!! no camera again...

I've been working in my Baby Granny Squares Blanket... remember my squares?

I was busy blocking them during the weekend. It was my first time blocking, it was fun and took a lot of time!

MG kept telling me that the blocking board looked like a modern art piece and that we should hang it in the wall. LOL...

So after the blocking.... I think it really improved my squares!!! I hope you can see the difference...!

And then I started to join them, I tried different methods and at the end I finished with a simple sc in the back. Here is a picture of the joining in the beginings...

Right now it's much more big than that (not that much!) it's 8x10 squares, I don't know the measures, but I'll post them another time.

I still don't know what to do with the edging.... And I have to work on more squares... I still have 1+ ball of each color...

See you soon!
