Swaps, Gifts and Posts

Wow it's cold over here, or maybe it's just me :), I woke up really early (4:30 am) to take Willy to the airport, he's going to the KDE conference at google , I'm still kind of sleepy and grateful that I'm gong to pick him up at 8 pm in a few days :).

ohh and I received my January Fat Quarter Swap the other day!! just look at these fabrics --->

I really liked this one, I had a generous partner, she also sent me lots of extras chocolate and tea :) I have more photos at My Flickr

Clarice surprised me with these wonderful stickers :) and some super cool double sided tape, I use it to make a paper toy yesterday and it rocks, I will need to find more of that tape later because something tells me that I'm going to run out of it soon.

I just love the aesthetic of the Zakka designer Shinzi Katoh I only have a this cup and the postcard Lili sent me, his fabric design is really something, so wonderful, I hope to keep collecting more of these wonderful items.

I had to post this wonderful Christmas gift, my friend Lili really knows me and pamper me all the time, she sent me a Decolello air freshener from Decole, the postcard and some cute plushies she made.
Scarlett took the plushies to her room :) her favorite if the bunny but she loves pigs also, Thank You My Friend.

I feel that I need to post more about my projects, I know that most of the time I post photos of swaps and parcels but that's because they really deserve a nice photo and a thank you :) maybe I need to write more often, so I can have space to show you the crafts I've made.

I've been experimenting with crochet again, I found a really nice brown cotton yarn and a smooth bamboo crochet hook :) let's see what happens.

Well I'm off to eat something, I need my coffee today

See ya tomorrow!

Eee...Decole air freshener! 。^__^。 Too cute.

I've been thinking about getting into crochet again too. How do you like the bamboo hook so far? I bought some bamboo hooks last year but found that I had an easier time with the aluminum ones.

It smells so fresh and sweet like lemon-lime :)

I liked the feeling of bamboo but the yard slides very easy out of place, I think it works well while making big things not small ones or maybe I need a smaller hook?

Anyway I love the aluminum hooks for tiny fine work but the sad thing is that my hand hurts a lot when i use these type of hooks :(, I may need some gloves or something like that.

Too much fun!
they're so much fun that I can't stop!
I always want to make one or two for month because they consume so much time, but it's impossible they're addictive
