Another day is over.A day packed with a lot of errands and being a chauffeur to my daughter.She is doing her exams right now.Why is it that at the end of the day so many things seem to remain undone?No craft time at all today.Isn't this pincushion cute?I never came across the pattern anywhere.Well goodnight.Let's see what tomorrow holds in store:)

we have plenty of pets in our home and they all have their characters.This is a photo of our lovebird (kabocc).He was becoming really stressed out in his cage so we open his cage and that is when the fun starts.He chews up all our papers and flies away with paper money.At least we keep the kitchen door closed and so we can get our stuff back!

cake decorating was never one of my strong points.That is why something like this is way out of my league.To decorate a cake I only spread melted chocolate and spread smarties on top.I especially like the knitting theme of this cake I came across on the internet.

This is a photo of my passage in the World of Cross Stitching. I had posted earlier about it.I had forgotten that the photo was on my mobile and not on my camera.Yesterday I received the small gifts which consisted of two madeira threads and two patterns..one of which is a kit.I will certainly try them one of these days.

Here is the second episode of this lovely programme shown in the UK. It is lovely to see them sew and do some mistakes which if I had done them, I would have thought that it is because I am not a professional or something. Shows that everyone is human after all but we learn from each other's mistakes.

Starting April 5th through April 8th, a different set of Craftsy classes will be on sale each day, up to 75% off their normal price so now is a good opportunity to learn that new craft that you have always wanted to from the comfort of your own home. These include patchwork, quilting, sewing. Take a look at their website for more information. That is what I am going to do as well:)

It was a solemn day today with loads of processions held all over the island. In the morning it was nice and warm but the evening brought a drop in temperature and out came the coats and scarves again. Tomorrow will be a normal day although in past years it was a day of mourning. However nowadays, shops open and radios and TV stations go ahead with their normal schedules. When I was a young girl, shops didn't open and radios played funeral marches.We don't eat meat either during this day. Sunday is Easter Sunday and we celebrate the fact that Christ has risen. Our traditional sweet is figolli. Click on the word if you want to know how they are done :))
