After Explorer Beastie’s trip to the northwest coast last week, it seems like a good idea to carry on with this maritime theme for a little longer! How do you all feel about meeting a real, live Mermaid Beastie?Look, there she is… elegantly running her paws through her tresses, as mermaids are wont to do. […]

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,600 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 60 trips to carry that many people.
The below two are my favourites…
I followed a simple but very lovely pattern found here 🙂
Hello my dear friends!
Another post about Christmas gifts! Oh,please,try to stand me if you can… but this is that part of the year… the final crafty rush !!!
I start with the gift for the most important person of my life, my Big man…
Following this tutorial I made to my Big man an apron to add to the previously sewed messenger bag… Since he didn’t want me to knit him a sweater I had to find a solution for his Christmas gift and decided to make something he won’t never imagine to receive. I added a personal note to the apron….
Oh,he don’t like garments with writings so I had to camouflage my message 😀 😀 😀 and,no, we are not married but ‘I have the best companion on earth’ didn’t sound me good so I opted for ‘wife’ …. well, there’s a clear desire expressed in my words too and I hope that he will understand…. ( 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 I’m laughting because I know he wont…. ).
He has already received two pairs of socks and the cable scarf…. and under the three there will be the below goodies…. not bad… What do you think? Would your husbands like to have those goodies for Christmas?
🙂 🙂 🙂
I’m so happy that I can show you one of the embroideries I’m making for my friends since the receiver doesn’t have neither a FB nor an IG account… 🙂 And since I like poppies….
My friends can do with their embroideries whatever they want…. a bag, a frame, a pillow…. The others will be shown after the holidays 🙂
My FIL has his first sock ready ….
I’m so happy because I will finish Christmas my list soon, in a two weeks all the items should be ready…. well, at least the biggest ones… there’s a scarf for my brother to be finished off, now on my needles, the blanket for my younger nephew and the second sock for my FIL… I feel quite ok about, the buntings for the blanket are cut out, the scarf is made on 8 mm gauge needles and the second sock is going to be started tomorrow during a knit café organized by me here in Peschiera (I hope someone will come tomorrow….) .
My BM asked me to make something for his colleagues’ children so I made yesterday two small bags to fill with candies…
As you can imagine, the bird is for the girls and the dog for the boys! Well,I have to change the fabric for girls since the black colour isn’t the best choice I could eventually make but all in all the idea is nice. Quite quick too 🙂
That’s it for now, my friends! I have to run to the supermarket and pick up some groceries so…
I wish you a happy weekend and a lot of happy craft!! ❤ ❤ ❤
Hello, my dear friends!
What to say…? Upseting events are occuring around Europe lately and it seems so stupid writing about crafting in these days but I’m strongly covinced that a way to fight those who are hurting us so badly is to not stop living our every day life! We can sit down and talk about the political situation which had brought us to have terrorism in Europe all day and night long but I do not see a solution in that now!It seems too late to me… Instead, I suggest to respect more ourselves, to love our family and friends, to try to protect them in the best way we are capable of and hope that our politicians will find a way to face and solve the terror threat as soon as possible. God, we are living in the 21st century and still fight each other!! How stupid this is!!!
But, please!!! Let’s go back to craft now!
I have finished off three more Christmas gifts.
I asked my Big man if he would like me to sew a blanket like this for his nephew too but he wasn’t sure if his sister would like it… so I sat down at my computer and find on Ravelry this nice pattern…. I’m not a big owl fan but I liked this one and,after have been given the blessing by my BM, I knitted it…
I will let you know after the winter holidays if this creature will be appreciated or not. In the meantime, the owl is continuing to sleep in my crafting den 🙂
Another scarf is ready!!! Yippee!!! This one is for my SIL husband 🙂
Not bad… I like this scarf, the garter stitch is so simple and versatile and so beautiful!! The yarn is a nice washable merino and this dark blue shade is so manly! Even my Big man likes it 😀 😀 😀 But my favourite is still this one… 🙂 🙂 🙂 Maybe because it fits so well my companion….
The last thing I’d like to show you is the below one…
….a detail of an embroidery…. And that’s all for now… I will not talk about embroideries until Cristmas…. because my friends will receive embroideries for Christmas,that’s why… I will just show a detail from time to time ….
So… now it’s time to wish you a nice and peaceful day! There’s one more scarf to knit, as also a pair of socks and another blanket to sew… and more more more… better if I go beck to work!!
