1. Crochet long sleeve top - on process, 2. Las mil y una noches - close up, 3. Cooking, 4. Pattern making - skirt

... I took a long Easter break and went home, had a blast with my family, I'm starting to miss my parents now... it's weird, it's been like 4 years since I moved but I had a great time with them.

 I began the long sleeve top before I left to go home, like 2 or 3 weeks ago, and I already have the half of it, a big improvement to me because I get easily bored, but the pattern helped, it's really easy but it's kinda tiring because I'm crocheting all the sleeves and "body" together so it's like forever to make a round.but I know I'm going to complete it... this time.

 And I also began to read again, I'm reading Las mil y una noches, One thousand and one nights, I first read the whole book when I was in high school I guess, and I started again now, it's said if you read the same book after 10 years, it changes the whole meaning, (like with the Le Petit Prince, it's been more than 10 years, I should read it again), so this book is somehow special to me, it's kinda old, it has this yellowish color and it's from 1975, my dad bought it when he was in college here.

Another thing I've been doing in this long college break is... to cook "real" food every day, like more than 1 or 2 steps food, not including just "open the package and boil" or the simple one " take the phone and order" so I think it takes more time and waiting and preparation but it's more special and cheaper and I guess I'm losing weight lol. I don't know what is going to happen next week when I start school, and I spend the whole morning there... probably I'm going to be too tired to just take the knife and dice, but I'll see.

Last one but not least, I finally started a pattern making course, I'm so excited, I always wanted to learn the "good way" because since I was young I taught myself from magazines and craft shows but it's good to know how things are really made, before I took just a pattern and cut, now I learning how to make that pattern and modify it, I have so many drafts I want to make real. I also brought my sewing machine from home, it's funny that is the same age as me, my mom hardly used it, it works really good, someday I'm going to post my first attempts at sewing.

Anyways I made a little friend to help me.
I took the pattern from the Wolfdreamer of the hook's blog, and I love it, it's been really useful, I thought the pins would "get lost" in the yarn but so far is so good. I lost practice in embroidering though.

I'm trying to make a Puzzle Bobble amigurumi, I can't believe nobody else has done them, they are so cute.


  1. Nice to see you again too!, it's been a hell of a busy month with school and trying to get things done, sorry for disappearing.
    I've been still reading your blog though but I was surprised I didn't see you post something in a while, too bad you don't have it anymore :/

  2. I'm immortal and NailWood too. I've got 2 another blogs, so I can't be very active user on each of it. So I've locked it for a short time, cause in that way I don't feel I'm doing nothing with it.

    Mery that's awesome that you are still focused in music, I'm looking forward to read some of your lyrics, you should upload a video of you playing or something :p. And no worries, my dad's an Aquarious too hehe. I'll try to keep posting stuff regularly (I know, I always say same sh*t lol).
