FIRST moment, hour, week ..

She came in this world unforeseen as snow in December ... fast and easy ...
Let's welcome my baby girl Samanta in the bright new world! :)

And I did finish cocoon although just barely on time ... She looks SO adorable I can't stop looking ...

Crocheting a granny rectangle can be quite tricky... and there are loads of variations for it (my first formula inspired by rectangle granny square i saw in Blair Stokers grannysquare sampler and a different approach for granny rectangle by Sue Rivers and probably many more I don't even know about) ... the latest revelation in this matter looks like this!

My crafty NY resolution :)

Year 2013 has been blessed ... and although the only thing that I have trully done from last years list is the last one - "be creative in all aspects of my life!" - I feel contented :)

I hope that this year I will be able to check (or cross out) more than just one thing from the list :) and have the strength, time and creativity to extend the list as the year 2014 unfolds :)

so here comes the NEW LIST:
  1. Make a quilt ... Started it last year .. but so far I have about 30% of the squares needed .. so still in the jean cutting part ... hope to finish it till summer ...
  2. Sew a bag for the stroller .. already know how it should look like but haven't found appropriate material...
  3. Blog more ... maybe make a section for my everyday life with the kids ? ... could be fun ... will think about this  :)
  4. Finish the Big Bright Blanket - and as it is almost done it should't be a problem.
  5. Finish the Blanket of hearts till summer ... hope that this year I will actually do this :)
  6. Finish the Blanket of the stars ...
