Newborn

Hey!

Things have been crazy lately. I’ve been working on 50 little amigurumis for a baby shower requested by my sister along with projects from here and there. I made bunnies, bears, frogs, etc.

And a gorgeous little princess joined our family on Thursday.

Don’t have to mention, when you begin to do something adorable you become obsessed XD.

Good Morning,

I managed though to work on the granny ripple baby blanket. The pattern is a piece of cake, easy to memorize pattern. I worked on it while watching TV.

A great traditional craft

In the last few days I’ve been having lessons about the traditional craft mom and dad kept talking about, and believe me it was hard. Nonetheless, I had a great time knowing how my parents lived and what they had to go through.

They had to live in farms and had to move from one to another periodically. So, they had to build houses from palm trees to stay at. They built different houses for summer and winter. One with close leaves and the other with separated ones. Their simple life depended a lot on palm trees. Not only in building houses and eating dates but in creating many other tools too and that’s why they had to learn this craft.

This craft is basically braiding palm tree leaves to turn them to a usable tool. I sent a miniature “sufra” to Marie, they used it as a rug to eat upon.
