Hello lovely crafters! I'm getting back to crochet. Had been hard to do since the hand accident from 2014, but I've missed it so much!

 I made an african flower potholder.

 As I was working on the backside, was intrigued about the new fashion of making freeformed crocheted mandalas.

I came up with a placemat and a coaster, a birthday present for my yoga instructor. She was very pleased with it. So I was!

I took the picture of the wrong side lol

Have a crafty week!

Necklaces and circles

Hi there! I have been experimenting with the sewing machine. Using the flower stitch foot, made a bunch of denim charms, which were completed as necklaces (adjustable sliding knots are the best the for a customizable lenght ).

Love the flowers, they are like little mandalas.

By the way, mine is not from Singer, sadly those are way too expensive, got it at eBay instead, for $4!!! It works perfectly. I'm so happy with it that all I want to do now is circles lol While I can get my hands on a circle stitch attachment, made a simple DIY  version, not perfect, but it works.

Happy weekend!!!

Summer in Miami and Houston

Hello fellow crafters, this post is not related to anything crafty... Except for the lovely artsy crafty things I've seen lately at shops and Museums.

I'm on vacation, spent a week in Miami and Delray, now I'm in Houston. I'm staying here for a full month. Was planning to do something crafty, such as a workshop, but didn't find any.

Brought presents for the girls,painted  two bags for my cousin's little girls

 and I've finished the 2010 BAM CAL from Ravelry in two small afghans for my twin nieces.

They were happy with those, but I washed them and one of the squares unraveled... I need a crochet hook to fix it before getting back home. Don't know how did that happened...

So here are a few pictures of the places I've enjoyed.



 Did you notice the Yellow Cab is actually pink???

 Little brother. The twin's dad.


The monster in me...

Origins of Batman

I don't know if this Maya rock depicts an astronaut or not, but the fact that he's making or having chocolate is so cool!!

Downtown at night.

And gardens:

 Love these stepping stones

Well, this is the report so far. Next week I'll try to go to NASA and The Health Museum...

Have a lovely, crafty weekend ;)
