Summer is Here

Hi There dear friends ...

I sure have missed you.
I have been a bit out of comission. My shoulder is still bothering me and now even more since I have a "frozen shoulder". It makes it very hard to do anything and typing is not a very pleasant thing as I have to type a lot at my work during the day. I have been trying to "visit" all of you as much as I can, but haven't been able to comment very much ... you know ... the typing thing again.

I have been enjoying the start of the summer and all that the sun brings to us.  

The flowers have just been gorgeous around us.

I also have been working on a few things, but really cannot show much of it until after this weekend. I have been working on graduation gifts and those are somewhat of a secret till this weekend when my daughter graduates from High School. 

They have had Prom ... Here is a picture of my beautiful Jewels ... my daughter and my handsome two more precious gifts.

And then a picture of Mama and daughter ... Happy :)

Now it's preparing for graduation this weekend ...

Talking about that its hard to believe she is graduating and going to college. Life is going at such a fast speed I have a hard time believing all these is happening right in front of my eyes, but I am really enjoying every minute of it.

She has finished all her finals...she has practiced and we are all ready for it ...
and it will all happen this weekend.

 Although I have not had much time to knit and crochet as I said many of my projects are now hiding ... but ...

Amongst all "the things I cannot show you yet" I have been doing so many washcloths I can almost do them with my eyes closed ... ha, ha !!!
I think I have mentioned before that this is a pattern from Pearl Soho and I really, really love it. It is the "wedding washcloths".

Before I go I wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to all of you my great friends who have donated to my HATS TO BRAZIL project. 
I have collected 95 hats and my luggage is completely full So although I had thought about bringing more hats I got just the perfect amount as I can only bring 1 luggage due to my shoulder injury and I got so many beautiful hats it will fill the hearts of so many mothers and keep so many babies warm. 

Thank you ,THANK YOU, Thank You. 
Look at this picture .... What a beautiful view ...
And it is all because of YOU and your loving heart :)

You generosity and love keep my heart warm and makes me feel so proud and grateful to be part of such a wonderful community and to have you as a friend. 

I will try to stay in contact while I'm in Brazil, but if I cannot post here find me on my IG feed. 
Until then stay cool and Happy Knitting and Crocheting!!!

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.

Lilacs from Teresa

Beautiful yellow flower again on 

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.
