Back online again

Hello,my friends!

Here I am again!! The internet connection is now fully functional and I am able to show you where we have moved and what I have been crafting lately… 🙂

Let start with Peschiera del Garda. Those of you who were following me on Instagram had aready seen these photos but now I can arrange them with a new order and sense…

Have a look to the downtown….








…. and to the surroundings…. my favourites!!! Because I can have as many bike rides as I like!!!







We moved in a nice part of Italy and I foresee a lot of solitary rides,a condition which I like a lot. Do not misunderstand me,I’m a very sociable woman,but I love that condition which brings me to stay a lot with myself musing about my spiritual and earthly life. Oh,I’m always and so often looking for answers…

Between one question and another rising in my mind,we had settled down 😀 and I have started to decorate our home… here it is, my crafting corner… 🙂


…. and the very first of the four curtains sewed and hanged.. 🙂





Wine and spices can’t never miss at ours….


….as can’t good food….



And what about knitting and crocheting…..??? Don’t worry! Here I am with my last project….



…. and with some crochet cameos…




I crocheted this sweet creature for my kitchen to keep me good company while cooking or when my Big man is away… did I do the right thing… 🙂 🙂 🙂 ???

There are a lot of things still to do in this new home but up till now I’m satisfied with what has been done and how we had managed all the move thing! And now we are back to our normal life. Well,I miss my Parma friends but I will go back to Parma from time to time,we are not so far away 🙂

I’m so happy to be online again so I can catch up with the latest news in the blogsphere! I missed you so much,I missed the way I feel when I read all your fabulous posts!! My door to the marvel of creation is open again and can’t wait to discover all the beauty you were up to lately!

Farewell to Parma

Hello,my dear friends!

I was away for quite a long time because of our moving but I can now say that everything is done. Yesterday it was the day of the Big Move and we carried to Peschiera del Garda all our stuff.


We are in Parma till Monday and today I’m enjoying some free time knitting and relaxing….


……before the beginning of our home decorating…. Well,we did not unpack anything yesterday so you can only imagine the chaos we have at ours….

New home with no Internet connection yet…. for the next month I’ll be with no internet except my smartphone and that’s why I started my Instagram page…. I have noticed that it is fast in photo uploading and it will be a bit easier to you to follow me while I’ll be off blogsphere… I’d like to show you the makeover I have in my mind (WARRING: there’s no guarantee that I will be able to realize my vision, I can assure only the effort put in… ) and hear your precious opinion! ❤ ❤ ❤

With this last post written here in Parma, in this small spot which was my Big man’s and mine first home, I wish you a great weekend!!

See you in Peschiera del Garda!!! (….. as soon as the Internet technician gives us the green light….)

In the meantime..

Hello, my dear friends!

What a nice thing to have my computer fixed and to be online again!!!

Ok, so,a lot of things happened lately and are still happening but today I had a quite relaxing day even if there were two important tasks done! Where to start,let’s see… hm… ok,let’s start from the curtains… my first task, no photos but just a few words to say that I cut out the curtains with the help of my friend Monica. Since my home is small and I have no appropriate table on which I can actually work, I had to go at hers and, since she’s a tailor, she also gave me some very useful advices. It is a great thing to have kind and sweet friends who are always willing to help. I will never stop telling that firends are very important to me and that their role in my life is basic! When you live away from home as I do, kind and gentle people are treasured like gold. So, my curtains are now cut and stored in their box ready to be sewed and hanged… Thank you,Monica!!

The boxes…. here they are…


…. I’m on the half way of packing our stuff and cleaning the apartment…oh oh oh my Big man brought back home the blanket I made a year ago… Can’t help myself, I like it a lot… I have the yarn and the pattern for a new one, but there’s always so little time…..


…. and I have a new ironing board cover….


…. Oh,the new home is going to be fancy…. Can’t wait to decorate it… 🙂 🙂 🙂

Up till now everything is proceeding as scheduled… I can even find time for craft…. There’s a sewing WIP….


…. for this one too, I was helped by Monica but it is still unfinished so I’ll write about as soon as it will be FO….

…. and my knitting project is growing a bit less then usual…


… to be honest, I have undone the previous work… I didn’t like how it looked, the needles I used were too thick and the tension was awful so I changed my needles and used a pair of 4 mm gauge instead of 4,5 mm. And I did well! Now the work looks better and my knitting is faster…. It is still a long project but a nice one, if the final result will be the one I have in my mind…. :/

But let’s return to the beginning of my post and to the second of today’s tasks…. my computer…. a week ago it had suddently crushed down… just like that, while I was catching up with the latest news in the blogsphere…. I brought it to the computer surgeon who was able to fix it, for my big surprise because I thought it gone for good … I’m so happy that I was wrong and so happy that I have it at mine again… So today I went to fetch it….


…. and I have so much fun riding my new bike!!! Oh,it is great to have a bike!!! I’m so very clumsy on it since last time I rode one I was maybe 16…. maybe…. I do not remember! We should have brought one earlier!!!


Well,it doesn’t matter much because I will ride the bike very often in the place we are going to live since we are 2,5 km away from downtown…. And again I can’t wait!!! Even if I’m a bit sorry to leave Parma and my friends… this is the sad part …. but I’m only a two hours of train trip away.. I foresee a lot of travelling in the future… 🙂 🙂 🙂
