Where were we?

Hello Dear Friends,
It has been such a long time; I have been neglecting my blog. Between work and school runs there is little time left and instead of blogging I have been using Instagram.I have become an Instagram fan!
I will amke a summary of the 4 months I have been absent, starting with crochet;
I have found the pattern of a round cushion I have been admiring for the last couple of years and immediately started working on it.This is my progress so far.Such a slow progress , I might add due to the plenty of popcorn stitch the pattern has!
I started crocheting a pancho for a friend of mine but I have to admit I am not able to put my heart into it hence a very slow progress. I am mainly crocheting in the car while waiting for my son to finish his private lessons.
I have been trying new motifs with new yarn.
Filling my basket with nmore squares for my blanket.I will run out of yarn for this one but I am trying not to think about it now,I will think of a solution later.

I have been working on another new project; I do not know how I will arrange it yet but doesn't it look gorgeous?
I am working with thinner thread and takes ages to work a couple of rows but it is worth it!
I still continue making doilies when I asm bored from working on the same project.
In the meanwhile,
I did a lot of gardening,
Lots of travelling and holidaying...

Lithuania
Nida, Lithuania.
And there was lots of baking too!
HAve a lovely week!
GAia.

Running a marathon?

Yesterday( Sunday) , it was the day of Girne (Kyrenia ) marathon. Of course , My Little MAn had to be there, running! When we first got there , it was really very crowded and 21 km race was coming to an end. It was so nice to see his friends from school ; a marathon is definitely better with your friends!
My Little MAn run with his brother, and they ran the 3 km part of the marathon. It was so crowded they have started the marathon by walking.
This marathon was to raise money for kids suffering from leukemia, so lots of people joined the 3 km race but they just walked it.
I do not know who won the first place but my boys are my champions.

After the race, because it was such a beautiful sunny day, we decided to have a coffee in the Kyrenia Harbour.

My eldest son is in Cyprus for Easter holiday; Little Man was so happy to be with him.
On the way back home we stopped by a nursery and got some flowers for the new house.

It was the perfect day.
Have a lovely week,
GAia.

SPRING IS HERE!

Hello Dear Friends,
This year in Cyprus we hardly had any winter. Rain was scarce and there was little cold.
At the end of March , the nature is in full bloom.





Last year, my son and I,we, moved to live with my parents. We are still living with them but we moved to a bigger house. Above picture shows the blanket I crocheted for my son's new room.

This is my corner in the living room for crochet time.
My latest work.

A work-in-progress...



My crochet work is not enough for this place ; I need to crochet more pillows because I don't have enough as you can see from the above photo. The house is still not finished but finished enough to be able to live in it. We are furnishing it bit by bit with my mom.We will take settling very slowly.
I hope you are safe and happy wherever you are,
Gaia.

SCHOOL HOLIDAYS

Hello Dear Friends,
Last week we had a week-long term-break.I took two days off and we had a real holiday.
We went mushroom foraging on the week-end.We could not find any edible mushrooms but it was so much fun for the kids.

Towards the week-end we flew to London, to visit my elder son.
We were so lucky to find tickets for the theatre; we went to see Matilda.
My boys having breakfast at the hotel. My Little Man was so excited to be with his brother.


Food was great, museums were great; everything was great.

We did not do any shopping, except for books that is! We lost ourselves in this lovely bookshop on the last day( luckily we were there the last day) .
Such a lovely place; we wanted to buy every book in the shop! Unfortunately we had two cabin sized bags so we couldn't! I had to say goodbye to the lovely copies saying to myself 'don't worry, you can always buy them on amazon!'. I intend to write a post about the books we got later.
We are back to reality now.School started,I really missed my work. That is all from me for the time being( I didn't go to any yarn shop; you are right!).
HAve a  lovely week!
Gaia.
