I know I know I have been working hard, been through good and bad times, we are alive and life consists of experiencing all sorts of emotions. What makes me tired though is that sometimes all of them or a large amount of them tend to happen on the same day. Yeah, but then again this is me and my life as it is.
So my dear ones I know I have been away for too long, it does not mean I haven’ t written whatsoever, it is just that I never finished a text or even worse, never revised the ones I did finish writing. This time it is different I will publish what seems to be the last text of the year.
And we did celebrate Christmas, as I once mentioned I love the idea of Christmas mind you it is not Holidays, but Christmas and all there is to it, the food, aromas, magic, feelings and the very notion of Peaceful Love .
It so happens that even though I had worked to my extreme -long hours- when both my arms felt sore from flipping each and every item I sold -at work-, scanning them, entering the few commands we have to at the till; my cheeks were sore from smiling and wishing Merry Christmas to each customer, my head spinning with my nonsense small talk while doing all that. God was I ever creative.
The following day was 24th already we were to spend with nice friends. After all my plans for dessert failed I decided to stitch up this nice little guy I saw in Simply Crochet magazine, a pattern by Lucy at the Attic24 since there came all the material in a packaging and this was my Friendship bird. I must confess I did not follow the pattern closely because I got astray but I followed the shape and picture and liked the result:
Hope you like it too, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year,
