Deep breathe...

I’ve been quiet on this side.
Sometimes life doesn’t go has plan…

Luckily I found out ,for me, that is very relaxing to make crochet.
Long time ago, in some blog, I read the difference between crochet and knitting, and why do people that chose just to do one type of craft, don’t get along very well with the other people that chose the opposite. Well for me it really doesn’t work. I like knitting, crochet, sewing (not doing that so much lately), working with felt fabric, and so on, guess I’m a multitask crafter.
But when I get stressed, I can get my relaxation in crochet. Maybe because I always knew how to do it, or because the patterns are much easy to follow, and maybe because they are in all times small projects.

So that is why I’m doing some squares of 12’’, they say, in my measure it only goes to 10’’! This is a crochet along, once a month in Ravelry.

Every month they do a post about the block of the month. I have chosen to do all of them in red, using white in contrasting color, when the block calls for a second color. Very romantic this is going to be!

I’ve also made the replace bag that was stolen from me. Not using the same colors and yarn (don’t have any in my LYS). But using an Australian yarn that was sent to me by a swap.

See what I mean, much more productive in crochet then in knitting.
Although I have to do some pair of socks for the SAM5, but that is another story.

I’ve had some bad news from Portugal, my father is in hospital, he went in a very critical condition, but now it has stabilized. (Seems like my 2008 year isn’t going so well). The medical condition is a septicemia. That I informed in the net, it is a very critical infection. There is a cure, but the patient must also be cooperative.
And for me to make a trip there, is almost impossible. But in case of emergency, that must be done. For now I will wait, with my hooks, for the upcoming news, from there.

Cross fingers, and positive vibrations.
I’m also trying not to go down; I’ve got to little girls in my house, that wouldn’t understand, why mummy is always crying, so you can see that a lot of straight has been holding on this side.

I may post less then I normally do.
Back to life…
