APRIL 2019

Hello Dear Friends,
February and March came and left, we are in mid-April now, time passes so quickly and I am late for everything!There is so much to do and so little time, with hardly enough time for crochet.I only managed to finish a market bag.
The pattern can be found here .
We had a very rainy winter this year; which is very unusual for Cyprus , spring hasn't totally arrived yet but yesterday it was a remainder of spring.
This is us; my sister and our sons enjoying my sister's garden taking a break to shoot a photo.


My sister's wisteria was in full bloom and under attack of some bees.Such a sweet smell!
As it rained plenty this year, our gardens are laden with bloom.














My Little Man is growing resisting everything I say.
He has his own opinion about everything ; I am having some tough time parenting this child! Next year he will have secondary school entry exam and we started preparing for this exam this year; sometimes I really pity him but the competition is really fierce and he has no choice but study.
Meanwhile, he is also swimming ; this year he became a licensed swimmer.
This photo is from a competition he entered with his school team.
In February we went to London to visit his elder brother and believe it or not, I didn't buy even one skein of yarn!
I took my Little Man to the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum but honestly ,as I have come to realize, he was more interested in eating at different restaurants and shopping!

This photo shows my boys enjoying some time together; my elder son had a busy schedule studying law so we were most of the time without him trying to make the most of London.


And lastly, here is a selfie of us on the way to the airport coming home.
I hope you have wonderful days.
Gaia.

Baby Blanket



This blanket was crocheted for a baby boy born in October.

This blanket My Little Man holding is the one I crocheted for my sister. Unfortunately I did not have time to photograph the finished blanket. Hopefully,I will have a chance to photograph it in my sister's home while in use.
Those two blankets were the last finishes of 2018. I  have already started another blanket for another baby boy for this year.
 I am into ripples this year, as it seems...
Have a lovely week-end.
Gaia.

Crazy Summer

Hello Dear Friends,
This summer of 2018 has been a crazy one. We had lots of travelling, lots of holidaying, lots of work, painful days as my uncle had a very bad cancer , he spent few months of his last days in an ICU. He died in August while we were on holiday, so I missed his funeral.It was sad, but my mother suffered the most. Losing her brother was tough, it is like she shrinked over-night.I started to think more about death and life but I want to avoid this state of mind and I engage myself in daily activities more fiercely.I feel like I am losing my words so I will leave you with some photos of last summer.
