Crochet Throw

Morning all
It has been very hot here, but the strong winds have been cooling us down a little bit....
for who doesn't know here in the Cape peninsula, we have normal winds from the South and they are normally minimum 50 km per hour... Yes it is mad, I've already got used to it....

For a long time I am trying to start a crochet throw for me.... and with all the orders and the girls school activities, there was never time for it.
Now I have....
And I already started.....

I like the colours that I've pick up.... the brown is exactly the colour of my couch.... it looks so pretty.
So I have a project to do while watching TV, and the good part is that it will be done when it starts to get cold, cool!

Have a nice day....

who am I....

So we are at the end of 2014... Walking with big steps towards 2015!
I've been thinking a lot of the real purpose about writing here....
I have a Facebook page, that makes so much easier to post there.... but also because I have much more comments there, witch to tell you the truth if fills my ego a lot!
Here half of my followers are very silent, apart from some old friends that I made through here, that support me.
You all know I work with felt to sell, not to became rich (I wish!) but to be able to buy the extras that sometimes there is no plan for it.
So I'm a mom, with a craft habit, that tries to make two little wilds happy....

I have also other addictions that I don't mention here....
I would like to talk about this country that I've landed 11 years ago, that seems so strange and yet I fell so at home here, without being called a racist with my comments.

I come from Europe, from a country, Portugal, that is falling apart, true.
There are good things there, as there are good things here!
If I could join them together that would be awesome!

I'm also an addicted list maker
I'm also an addicted planner maker
Can't live without my mini lists and can't live without my planer!
It helps me to organize my day with my two girls, and to organize when I can make my crafts....
I also try to plan meals and shopping lists....
I'm a compulsory list maker! There I've said it.

Been hiding from this blog from a long time.... but I can't handle anymore.

I've got all my crafts selling on Facebook, so I'm thinking I would combine crafts and my addiction here on the blog.... maybe people would be more interested.

I'm also a collector of recipes.... love the pictures (although sometimes the taste doesn't go with the perfect picture)

So I think 2015 is a turning point for this blog.
I will still show my little work with felt, but show a little of what I like.....

Hope you don't go away, afraid of the new posts.

Comment what you think about this.... Thank you :)

Family time

I'm officially on holidays, and that means that I have a little more time for everything....
My girls have the craft bug also.... so they really love to dirty their hands....
Last Friday we started with mosaic....

mosaic drying out and waiting for the grout....
.... and all finished

The hearts were made with normal mosaic, and the frame with CD cuts.... a new try for me.... I just can't put the acrylic sealant on that one.... you can see the brushes on......
We had great fun.....
This morning we went to the beach to pick up some nice shaped stones.....
next project, painted stones for the garden :)
