Happy 2012 (and some photos)

First and foremost, I wish all of you a happy 2012. May the year be active and bring you challenges and the joy that comes from a job well done.

I wish this to you, my dear readers, but also to myself. 2012 looks like there might be a few opportunities and challenges ahead of me but I am spoiling for a fight so that's good. I hope you feel the same about the coming year.

And as a bonus, a few quick (mobile) photos of Christmas decorations I made this year.

I won't pay that much for a scarf!

I went winter-shopping the other day. I needed a new coat, hat, gloves and SCARF. It went fine with everything but the scarf. The coat and hat are black so I was looking for a nice, warm, and colorful scarf. I found one just like I wanted but it was in a fancy brand boutique and it costed too much for my taste. I thought about it and decided to save some money and knit the scarf myself!
And here is how it looks now. Yey! Right? Only detail, it didn't end up being cheaper then the shop version. Awesome. But I like making it myself. So still a win. I just hope that I will finish it by the end of winter cause I am not so good with knitting needles.

Fancy Eating

So my life has been totally upside down the last month and I had (and still have) to deal with a lot of stress. For me one of the day to do that is to spend quality time preparing and eating good food. Taking this extra few minutes preparing a delicious and beautiful lunch gives me the chance to occupy my mind...and just do something that makes me happy. Not to mention the joy of actually sitting down and eating that.

So today I had French bread with olive oil, Italian ham, goat cheese and cocktail tomatoes on a bed of rocket leaves. And for desert I had delicious plums (did I mention I really like autumn?).

Do pay attention to my new table napkins I recently finished making. I made only two but I am thinking of adding 2 more to the set.

I know the colors are a bit off but there is really very little sun here nowadays and I don't have professional equipment for taking photos in poor lighting.

I'm Back

So it's been a little while since you heard from me last. Mostly I've been busy with my studies but the real reason why I have not been writing is maybe laziness. Now I am back on track with some craft projects that I want to show you here in the next few weeks (as soon as the weather permits some decent photos).

Today I am just writing to say "hallo" and to introduce to you two new four-legs that joined our little family. They are two brothers called Eddie and Silencio and they are the cutest rascals you can imagine.
I spend a lot of time making small crochet balls for them, which are their favorite toys and which get lost almost immediately. By my estimate there are around 15 of them somewhere in the apartment and I don't know where.
