finally crafty

It's been a while.
Since I started to work in Glasgow, I haven't done much crafty bits.
It's terrible, I know.

This week, I wanted to do crochet so much that I crochet and slept less.
I am tired but happier.
When I crocheted him. His neck looked something missing.
I made a scarf. Now he looks cosy, don't you think?

Very merry Christmas and happy new year!!

The first view on snow..

We went to the Isle of skye a few weekend back. It was amazing to see how middle of nowhere you can be. Fresh air, wide view, stroke of rain you can observe in the sky. It was cold day. It's coming. the winter is here.

Sneeze and bake.

Spending all day at home was getting really boring so I decided to try my new cookie shapes...

New babies.

Life is a constant time of change , I keep on changing my mind about my future and the meaning of happiness is different everyday.

These are the last things I made in the pottery workshop, in the next days I'll show you some more.

Some days I am happy about what I do and who I am and some others I feel lost and a really bad artist...for a matter of fact I still wake up everyday feeling like creating something.

Should not be the time for me to accept the fact that life is not perfect and it is going to take some time to be who I want to be?

In the workshop they have a pot full of little pieces of paper with quotes, every week I pick one, last week I got this:
" The biggest mistake people make in life is not trying to make a living doing what they most enjoy." Malcolm Forbes

It's been a while...

a new job started at the beginning of last month. It's been quite busy and tiring. a new beginning for one thing and the other get on hold... I need to balance but I also need a little time to do so.

I started this crochet with no much ending in my head. Now I would like to finish but I followed the book I borrowed from library and I have to figure the pattern from what I did so far... or else wait till I get some spare time to go to library again...

This is why, I love doing my own things. Just to crochet whatever the way I want.

How are everyone's crafty hands are doing?

I am not lost.

I am still here, still alive.

I have been too busy, too lazy, too sad, to happy to post but now I'll try harder...

Well I 'll try...

I have also been on holiday in Asturias in the north of Spain, nice eh?!

I used to write some note and pass it to my friends when I was a little girl.
I just thought about it and found this Origami blog .

Unfortunately, this is in japanese. So, I will make some illustration with English
instructions soon.

Here is some Origami I made.

Cute crafts, nice food, good music, comforting chat and some drink... let's feed our soul. 

I went out today to enjoy the festival. Lovely view of the city with blue sky.

The workshop in my dreams...

  • If I close my eyes I can see the mountains in front of me,I can smell the grass and hear the river,the fresh air in my face and the happiness all over my body.There is a place where I grew up that I always considered my home,I always felt right there and always dreamt about bringing the people I love and build a workshop.The chances of this happening in the close future are very few and this is the reason why creating this space for my friends Naoko and Elena,my sister Fede and myself seems such a good idea to me.I love all the creative things that come out these ladies brains and hands and the possibility that we'll ever be in the same place at the same time to have a workshop together is quite remote.I imagine this little corner of the web to be that little house in the mountains and maybe for them is a little loft in Paris or the blue door in front of the sea but we will be together sharing our ideas and keeping the creative energy moving.Today I am happy and positive, "if I want it I can do it "goes in loop in my brain,tomorrow maybe I'll be listening to Billie Holiday all day and looking at my rainy Scotland from the window but at least this is the first step into a new exciting place ,Enikki in giardino ( illustrated diary in the garden ) is now open!!
