Having a cat is a humbling experience. It makes you think about your place in the world. When your cat stares at you from the sofa while you’re leaving home early in the morning to go to work, you can’t help but wonder who is the more evolved species. Who is the master here?
Well, I’ve found out that it’s best to accept things as they are and just assume that you work hard so your cat can have a better life. So, I made this t-shirt to show it to the world.
I’ve recently had the chance to try 4 craft packs of the “Mes creations” series published in France by Gründ: the paper jewels, the coloring on velvet, the pop-up postcards and the watercolor pictures. I just want to share some thoughts with you. Continue reading
“What? Yarn? But it’s almost summer!”
Oh, yeah, how north-hemisphere centered of you, my friend… Don’t forget that when it’s almost summer to you, it’s also almost winter somewhere else.
Anyway, I have too much yarn, and I saw this project and I just couldn’t resist 🙂
Fancy making these easy little pouches with cat faces? Keep reading!
September 11th is a special date for me because it’s the day I started this blog… 4 years ago! Wow! Here’s a round up of 4 of the best crochet projects to celebrate: a cowl, comfy socks, veggies play set and a crazy cat house. Just click on the names and you’ll be redirected to the page! Happy crocheting!
It’s been more than a month since my last post and some of you may be wondering what happened to me. Did I just get bored of blogging? Did I die?
Well, I’m still alive, but certainly there’s been a lot going on in the last month.
First of all, we moved. And moving sucks. For the previous weeks to the M-day (Moving day) your old house is full of boxes and garbage and everything is in the middle. Then, there’s the big day. And for the following weeks, your new house is –also- full of boxes and garbage and everything. And there is a lot to do, make, install and repair. And countless trips to IKEA.
I miss having a HOME.
To make things worse, as a consequence of the moving –or maybe not, we’ll never know- our cat stopped feeding himself. He just stopped eating and drinking, and all he did for two days was throw up. He was so dehydrated at last that we had to leave him in a clinic for 4 days! They did all sorts of analytics and tests and everything seemed all right, apart from a little swelling in the small intestine the cause of which we’ll never know.
On those same days, our refrigerator stopped freezing and our motorbike broke down.
It was probably one of the worst weeks of my life. It seemed as if everything was going wrong! I’m not enjoying this 2015 so far…
Now, the bike starts (although it still needs some fixing), our fridge works –thanks dad!- and, more important, Nui is back home.
I just need a little bit of time to put my life in place again and I’ll be back with new crafty things very soon.
Thanks for being there.
It’s been a rainy week here so I guess it’s an appropriate weather to share with you this cat-on-a-raincoat plushy I’ve made.
I had this book called One Stitch at a Time around for a while and it was about time to use it. The book is in fact a kit, and it comes with instructions and patters for making 3 toys: cat, dog and rabbit, but the materials included are just for the cat.
Today is my 30th birthday and I want to share with you the biggest project I’ve made so far: my patchwork quilt. It’s 1,70 x 1,70 meters and it’s all hand sewn, even the finishing borders and the quilting. It took me two years of my spare time to finish it.
