New experience

I just finished another dress for Barbie. I got the pattern from a Sweden site that is amazing!

This is something that i don't make at a long time, crochet. The last thing that i did was a blanket for my little girl.
I got the ideia of a purse on Future girl, and she has some amazing stuff. I invite every one to have a little time to go there and take a look! So i put my brains to work and made this one.

but to put a zipper there was a big history. But i dit it!
I've got a new purse, wow!

My first dishcloth
I think I'm going to frame it.
No more news from the land of the lions
Have a nice knitting everyone:)

Cross Stitch anyone?

The other day I was reading Ruth’s Place in her post about enough is enough and she has my support there, and I’m also going to do the same!
I always made cross stitch all my life, why stop now because of the knitting?
I know why, because I’m like a sponge I can absorb everything that I see always looks so cute and I want to do also, and that also looks cute let me try these one.
Now I’m doing some dishcloths, and I’m having fun with it.

Here are some photos of my cross stitch (it is also my passion); some of them came by boat from Portugal.

And new ones made in South Africa.

And while I’m in the computer writing a post, look what I found on top of the table!

Serious it is five minutes doing my things and other five minutes taking Angelina out from somewhere.
Yes, stay home mom sometimes has its ups and downs.

Until next time
Happy knitting everyone:)

What a change

I'm Portuguese. And all my life i lived in Portugal, until one day i met my Half Face.
He is from South Africa, and he always wanted to come back again.
So here we are in this wonderful country, i dint think that way before, and let me explain why.
Has everybody knows, we only know what is going on out side of our nest, by the news that we see on TV. The images that we, in Portugal, have from this country are pathetic.
We only see houses made of wood, streets of sand and kids running everywhere with no clothes at all. And let's not talk about the crime, there, you have the idea that you can't even put your nose out of the window, with out get a shot! That's true, the image was not pretty, and i was starting to get concerned about moving from a country with the freedom of taking the kids to the park, to a country that you always have to look over your shoulder!
But sometimes things aren't exactly what you see at first.
My first day in this country was very funny, now that i think about it, i was amazed how i could walk, go to a coffe shop, and have a party in a bar during the night. It looked like i wasn't in South Africa, The South Africa that i saw on TV.
Of course there is crime here, like in every little place in the world.
Of course there are places that you can't even put you feet, like there are also in Lisbon.
This post started because i was trying to join a group of knitting (that I'm enjoying) and somebody answer me that she dint realize that i was in South Africa?
Do people think that there is no computers here? Do people thing that there is no people working and have a normal life for e.g. in Iraq?
Beside all the problems that country's have, people live there and they try to do a normal life, like every body else.
Now i must go because since Friday night my teeth are giving me a hard time, now i don't really know were it hurts.
I feel better now that i ''throw'' my words out.

Have a Nice Knitting everyone

One Year

Tomorrow it is going to be one year that Angelina came to know the outside world!
It is amazing how time fly’s, and believe me it really fly’s.
Here it is the girl when she was born

(She was a little small because she was born two weeks earlier)

And Angelina picture, today.

We at home don’t realise how big she is, because we see her every day, I only see the difference by the clothes and the nappies. Even when I look at Nicole, I sometimes start to think that she is going to be four this year! FOUR, mama mia, I’m getting old, and time is running faster then before.
About the Barbie clothes, I’m sorry to the lovers, but there are too many, and it would take forever, so for every one to see that I’m not talking for free,

this bag is full of Barbie clothes, and there is some missing because they are being finishing as we speak.

So Nicole is a very lucky girl, hey.

Well I confess I also play with the Barbie, I’ve got a girl, and mommy’s must play with there kids, Wright? That is why I’m always making new things

This is the proof of it, it will be ready very soon and I will post a Fo for every one to see.

I’ve been having some problems with the net, and waiting for the phone company to install the ADSL line at home, that is why I’m at my Half Face office, and that is why I’m posting Angelina birthday a day earlier. Let’s see if the problem is solved for the next post. BBBUUUÀÀÀÀ
And that is why only now I’m shouting

Sorry about the delay!
