Day 18 and 19.
Mistake or lesson
. “Are you waiting for me? Just a second, I’ll put on some lipstick”,- sweet girl-pelican said 😉
My mistake is that I sometimes take several projects at the same time. I know I’ll finish them anyway, but it’s quite distracting from the most important project. Still learning how to say “no” and trying to plan all my projects in advance.
I can’t say that I had many of them before but I would really love to have more of them. For me, the dream collaboration is a creative project when people work together, learn from each other and help. I’m opened for any kind of collaborations and if you have an idea, please don’t hesitate to ask me.

Hi guys 👋
I’m here today because I need a huge favor. I need your help to fly my sister and my niece to Portugal this summer.
My family and I have been renting a house there for the past 5 years, it’s a place that we really love and where we can recharge our batteries 😊
We had invited my sister Céline and my nieceVal to join us this summer, but a few months ago Céline was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis 🙁
She’s been in a lot of pain since, and suffers numerous side effects from treatments. She’s had to take time off from work and had to meet unexpected expenses. She told me that because of this she couldn’t afford to buy plane tickets to join us in Portugal 🙁
We’re so bummed this is happening to her. She’s a single mom and works her ass off to provide for her and her daughter. My niece has diabetes, she was diagnosed at age 4, my sister has been raising her alone for 17 years.
Three years ago our mother passed away unexpectedly, they were both very close to her and it hit them very hard.
And now the psoriatic arthritis 🙄
Yet they never complain, they’re so strong and brave.
I feel this is just too unfair 🙁
I hate to ask for anything for myself, but this time I have to ask because Céline and Val not being able to take this vacation with us is just not possible with all they’ve been through.
I have recently written four headband patterns, two knit and two crochet. I put one up on Ravelry a few days ago and was gonna do the same with the other three, but I figured I’d wait and offer them to you instead to fund my sister’s trip to Portugal. Anyone who contributes any amount to this fund (Link in my bio 👆) will receive my patterns as a huge thank you.
You can use them yourself, or give them to someone you love.
Just send me a dm with your email adress once you’ve contributed (the link is in my bio) and I’ll send them to you ASAP 😊
Thank you so much for reading this, and thank you for your help ! ...
The poll in my stories was close but the bloomers being finished first was the winner!
Though I did work on the cardigan a tiny bit more. 🤭😉
I am calling them Blossom Bloomers. It’s springtime, it sounds cute, and you could say the stitches look like petals. 🌺

Thanks to everyone who made a suggestion of the colour I should use for the cardigan I’m testing a pattern for.
The top choice was pink so even though it looks a little peachy (poor lighting) here it is ready to start. ...
El Tejido como Terapia:
El arte de tejer se asocia a las abuelas, pero actualmente cada vez más las mujeres jóvenes buscan desconectarse y fortalecer lazos sociales a través de alguna actividad manual.
Se está imponiendo este pasatiempo no sólo como salida laboral, sino también como una terapia natural para combatir el estrés y la depresión.
Tejer hace bien al alma y corazón!! 💪💗

Éstos cuadrados son básicos, pero te dejo el patrón por si deseas tejerlos 🔲 😉😀
