Someone Made a Dress with my Pattern!!!!


I'm just super excited!!!
Do you remember my first pattern?? Sienna's Dress??
Well, I was Raverly-ing yesterday and wanted to show my parents how my pattern looks on Raverly, when I saw it said that there was 4 projects of it already!!!
I got so so so so so so so so so so so so happy and excited and jumping and happy dancing!! I just couldn´t believe it...

So the first one was made by mjarmero (name in Raverly), and I loved how it's made in a little size, she called it size PukiPuki (that I guess it must be the name of the doll), I think its sounds super cute!

Recently, a friend of mine got married... I think I should say friends of mine, because his now wife has become a friend too. So they got married at the end of July, I coudn't attend the wedding because it was the same weekend than our moving!!! and also because it was difficult in terms of distance, travel papers, etc... So very sadly, I couldn't go... snif, snif...
But as I told you, I'll go back home tomorrow, so I'll see them soon, and I got a wedding present for them...
I ordered Moo cards, and a frame to go with them!!!
I was a bit anxious that the package wouldn't arrive before I had to leave, but it came yesterday!!! so today is going to the suitcase to make the trip with me and finally get to them...
The package was a bit large, I didn't take a picture of it... but this cute box was inside, with the cards!!!
Perfect 100 cards, all with different pictures of my friends!!!
All acompanied with a back portrait
I couldn't take the picture of the frame because it's packed and I didn't want to unpack it until it reaches it's destination.

Well...... I am In LoVe with my present!!!! I think they'll be very happy with it, and I can't stop looking at the cards... they are so beautifuly done!! and printed and cut and all!!! now I want some for myself... lie, I wanted them since before, but now I want them more!!! Heart Skippy!

Another thing that has my heart full and happy is that yesterday arrived other package.... this one from my sister in law... and she sent us a Donut Maker!!!!

My Week

So during the week that we had spend at B-town and with MG at work, I had plenty of time to check every detail of our new place until I was pleased and happy with it... I also got to walk around town, specially downtown and the campus and get to know a bit more every day about this new place.

I love the walkings around downtown, there are so many boutiques, and galleries, and shops!! there's a lot of people going in and out of all of them, and it's a very alive town, even when college classes hasn't started! I think classes will start next week or so, and then we'll have 40,000 college kids in town!!! it'll be fun, very fun to watch... I love to go out and see people.

I still haven't make anyfriends... but that'll come with some time.

I love to go out to walk and get into every little shop and explore... but it is SOOOO hot now!!! that it's nearly imposible... I think that'll get better during the fall... plus, all the city has a lot of trees, but the campus specially is full, full of trees, so I bet it'll be a very pretty and awsome sight with all the autumn colors!!!

So during this week with all the walkings and trips to the library and etc, etc... I started a new ripple blanket for my 2 yo niece... it's pretty much in the same colores than the other one, because my cousin loved it and wanted one for her daughter... same colors, diferent shades... inpired in Bake and Sew blanket, I absolutely love her colors... and I can't match them, LOL... but I'm very pleased with my new try.

It has a 140 chain base, a lenght of 40in... and I've made 10 doble stripes, so 20 rows so far... 3 or 4 days working on it... not too bad!
I have 4 more weeks to finish it... I think I'll finish it before, but who knows!!!

I'm pretty excited because this Friday I get to go back home!!! with all my family and friends, for 3 wonderlful weeks!!!! Sure I'll miss MG a TON!!! he is not going with me :o( but it will be a great time and I'm so happy and I can't contain myself, so I have this week to explore B-town in the summer because I think that by the time I get back, fall will be very close!

I really, really hope to have things to share with you while I'm there and the time to do it!!!
And I hope you are very, very good and happy!!!
See you soon!

I'm back!!!

Hello friends!!!

I'm back in blogland from the moving period.... we had a week to pack and had to leave all our stuff in storage for another week because our new place wasn't ready yet.
MG started with his new work... he is very happy at it and enjoying it a lot, which (as you all can imagine) makes me truly happy and un-worried!
Then a week laterm we got the new apt, so we had the moving, so we went back to our previous town to pick up all our things and got them into a U-haul truck and drove down here... then the unloading and following unpacking of all our things... and I reasured::: you don't know all you have, until you have to pack it!!!
We have tons of stuff... well not that much! but it was a lot, and certanly it was more than last year when we moved to WL.

Now we are in B-town, nice place to live, very artsy all around and full of art all year long... there is more than 1700 art events in a year!!!!
So yes, we are very happy, he is loving the place, and I think that I'll be very happy with all those galleries and boutiques and suply stores around.

The unpacking took less time than the packing, fortunately. The moving was on Saturday and by Monday everything was unpacked and in its new place. A fun part in a moving is get to decide where will be the next permanent place of every item that you own.

I'm loving my new place, is an apartment in a second floor, with plenty of natural light and tons of sun in the living room during the afternoons... my studio-office-creative space, is very nice, and I'm very happy with it. I used some vinyl decorations in one of the walls above one desk and I'm VERY pleased and happy with it...
Here a picture!
Very simple, yet fun and bright and I think it gives a good touch at contrast with the (very) white wall. And I also got matching blue and green stand lamps!!!

See you soon from my new home!
