Sunday


Hi there dearests

I'm still having trouble with my arm and shoulder so I decided maybe it would be a good idea to start a series of short posts to see if I can slowly get back here. 
I miss you all ...

Spring has been just gorgeous here in Oregon ... I'm just overwhelmed by its beauty.

And Here is what I have been doing this Sunday mornings ...

I have a beautiful Hawaiian friend who just had a baby boy. I was making this bright and happy baby blanket for her about a month ago when the baby decided to come a lot earlier than expected. Both mom and baby are doing great ... And I'm trying to do a little ( shhhh ... don't tell my doctor ;)) every day to see if I can get it done by the time she comes back .


 

Thank you for coming to see me even if I'm only here for just a short little post. . . I sure miss you.

PS: made an inventory of all my "Hats for Brazil"  this weekend and I already have 81 hats, 3 blankets and  5 sweaters with matching booties. Yay !!! And all thanks to your generous hearts !!! I will be doing a proper post thanking everyone of you next time. Here is a little sneak preview: 



Have a wonderful Sunday great friends

Happy Easter !

Hi there my dear friends...
I hope you all are having a wonderful April. Easter was just here and it was so fun to spend some time with our families and enjoying some time together.
We have been buzier that ever and I have injured my shoulder ( probably about 6 months ago) so that has made it very hard for me to knit, crochet and even type. I have a rotator's cuff injury and bursitis and also tendinitis in my elbow and wrist. So if you will forgive my absence for a while until I get it healed. I have been trying to read your blogs but sometimes I cannot even leave you a coment because I have been in so much pain. I'm doing PT and lots of doctor's visits... So I'm hoping to be back here very soon :) 
Till then come and visit me on Instagram ( tacistudio) for a little daily dose of of spiration ... Not much need to type .
I miss you all and hope to be back soon with a few new things I have been trying to work on.
I will leave you today with a few pictures of some things I made and some cool pictures I took in March...
Hope you are all well and enjoying the beautiful spring that is already here to stay. 
Thanks for coming to visit me today.

XoXo

Beautiful Shawl

Hi there dear friends
Can you believe that march is already upon us ???
I have been working hard and getting things ready for my husband's "special birthday" this month.
 
 
spring break will be here soon and although we don't have big plans we may scape and go to the beach for a couple of days ... bliss.
 
I have been working on the washcloths for my daughter, but my favorite project right now is my shawlette and a new KAL shawl I'm hoping to start this weekend.
 
One of my friends was making this one last time we met for knitnite and I just had to start it. When I looked at it it felt almost like a "knitted paint".
 
It is Leftie (for leftovers because you can use leftovers for the leafs if you wish) by Martina Behm. I just love it and it is not too hard to do. Once you get going with the leaves the garter stitch section goes really fast and garter stitch is so relaxing to me.    
 
So be prepared for a shower of pictures ...although I'm not done and it's not blocked yet.
 










 
I think now you got it how much I love this little shawllette.
 
 
But don't be fooled, I already have my eye set on another project.
 
I have been visiting Lori and her fantastic blog Lori Times Five for a while now. She has the most beautiful pictures and her trips are just inspiring to me. I absolutely loooove every project that she makes and cannot wait for her next post. So I decided to go look on her IG since she does not post as often as she post on IG (as all of us do) and for my delight now I get almost a daily dose of her pictures there.
 
She went on the most beautiful trip to the Shetlands with several talented knitters/designers and she loves to make shawls. Through her blog I have found Beatrice's blog and website, Thread and Ladle,  and I am going to try my first online KAL. Beatrice is also very, very talented and I absolutely fell in love with her blog and her designs.
 
The Liesellote Shawl.
 
 I'm going to the 2015 Yarn Crawl here in Portland, OR tomorrow with my friends and my most exciting mission is to find the yarn for this fantastic shawl,
 
 
 
Now I think it's time to go get dinner and go to bed early so I will have lots of energy for my adventure tomorrow. I look forward to this day every year and I'm so very excited.
 
 
Thank you for visiting me today ...I Hope you all have a great weekend and thank you for all the love you show me every day :)
