It is Time.

I can't say that this one will be healed by time. Actually time will teach me how to keep on going and live. My best friend, the one person I have shared most of my life with, my favourite teacher, the oak tree I would hang on to when needed is no longer phisically next to me. She flew away like a little bird to Heaven taking with her a piece of my heart. It is four months now and again like I would do before, my needles have helped me recover my emotional balance. My mind being still stunned could not focus to much so I put aside those always challenging projects that I would love to work on to be replaced for some time by simple ones that would not challenge my already challenged mind. I have been knitting and crocheting easy shawls and scarves. This is a first one I finished in a joyful colored yarn to make me smile. It does make me smile. It is time to start posting again.

Rainy May

A very difficult month, where many things happened so fast. I did not touch my needles, hooks, loom, scissors, threads nor any fiber or yarn. A sad month for crafting, full of unfulfilled dreams. These are very challenging times.

I am back again!

Well, "being back" is just a way of saying in this case that I took a little break as I virtually had no time to post here at all. I am at a new chapter in my life and like any new and exciting challenge, I barely had time for much else. I have certainly started the biggest adventure of my life and I am very happy!
So now things are starting to adjust little by little and coming back here to post and share my fiber related projects is always a happy thing for me to do.
I recently learned a new crochet tecnique that has caught my total attention and it is Tunisian Crochet. I took a course over "Craftsy" with Jennifer Hansen as the teacher and I am hooked. Above is a picture of my first project after crocheting small washcloths. I really like its results because it is my own design.
I am very happy to be back here as it can be quite motivational for me to write about what I love to do the most: create with fibers.
