Hello,my dear friends!
How are you?How did you spend your weekend?Working,crafting,on the seaside,in the mountain?In whatever way and wherever you were,I hope you had a great time!
If you had read my last post,you know that I was visiting my family in Croatia….. and that I met my baby nephew!! ❤ ❤ ❤ Well,there’s no need to tell you that I melted like ice… and still am melting like that because the boy is really beautiful!On the other hand, also the baby’s big brother utterly surprised me,making me cry like a baby once alone at home 🙂 ❤ ❤ ❤ Last time I was home I saw him watching Shaun the Sheep,one of my favourite cartoons! 😀 😀 😀 well,this time and seeing my enthusiasm for the cartoon, this four and a half years old cute little boy said me to take his DVD with six episodes of it and to bring it back the next time I’ll come to see him and his family…. what to say…. he made me happy and so glad to have such a generous nephew… ❤ ❤ ❤
Janko Strižić is,of course, Shaun the Sheep translated in Croatian language. 🙂
I spent with my brother’s family almost whole Saturday and talked a lot with my nephew…well,our main topic was his big passion for huge excavators…I told him that,when I was working on a pipeline construction project in Croatia (as a secretary not as a worker… unfortunately…) an accident with one of our escavators occured…
This image is not mine,I found it googling….while digging in a precarious position,the escavator operator hadn’t noticed that he was leaning more and more in the slope by which he was working…suddently,the escavator cruched down with the operator in its inside who,once outside, shocked and frightened, called immediately us in the offices asking for help. Luckily for him,there was another bigger escavator operating near there which was carried on the first free trailer and brought on site. Miraculously, there was no damage to the overturned vehicle and the operator wasn’t hurt….he was only shocked and cried a lot,but soon he calmed down and was on the big escavator and continued his work. So, dear Marley Ian Parry (Ian like Grandpa),this is shortly the story my dear nephew obliged me to talk about from 9 a.m. till 4 p.m that day …. ❤ ❤ ❤
My friends,I promised to Marley Ian Parry (Ian like Grandpa) to tell this story and had to keep my word,but now,that done,I can talk about crafting…and will start with a baking episode because I bought my Mum the baking pan for my angel food cake and here it is the result of my purchase…
I think I made four of those while at my Mum’s… fast,easy and delicious…. 😀 😀 😀
Now,crochet…. 😀 😀 😀
First finished WIP… remember this…well,here we are… 🙂
It’s a sort of napking,made by a scrap of the fabric I used for my tablecloth… I’d like to use it as a decoration for a platter on which I want to put some biscuits for my sis in law…will see in less than two weeks if the idea I have in mind will be realized…. 😀
During the stay at my Mum’s I finished,at my big surprise, a shawl I was working on for a while…
Well,a shawl or a keffiyeh….the folowing photo was taken at 5:30 a.m. at my Mum’s before leaving for Italy… 🙂
…it is nice worn in both ways…
I often say that this is not a great moment for us because of the economic crisis but…. I have to be honest and tell you that wearing something so beautiful made by me makes me feeling better and make me, maybe stupidly, hoping in a better future…. I haven’t expected to finished it during this last trip but,suddently while trying it on ,I saw it big enough and wove in ends in the very moment when Germany signed its victory goal during the final FIFA World Cup match… 🙂
My friends,I have to go now because I’m especting friends for dinner.There was so many of you who wrote me such nice comments and to whom I haven’t answered yet.Just give me some few hours and I’ll be back online to write you tomorrow.
Thanking everyone of you to be always there I wish you a peaceful evening.
