Knitting and Croche, Uncategorized

Hats

Along with cooking and photography I have another hobby that’s very dear to me, even though I never seen to have enough time to actually do it. However, this winter I decided to change that.

I started knitting again. I made myself and my daughter a few hats and scarves. Two of my coworkers were really impressed and I promised I will make them a few hats as well. For two weekends, all I did was: coffee-knit and repeat 😉 LOL

Here are a few of  my results I thought I would love to share them with you:

Red Hat, Red and Gray scarf and a curious visitor during the photo session 😉

Let me know if you liked my hats 😉

Wish you all a great week !!!

2016/2017 Tag

So I’ve been tagged in by Jess ( Thanks, Jess 🙂 ) and I decided to go for it. The tag was created by David from The Guy Who Said Always No.

Here are my answers to the questions:

1. Describe your 2016 in 3 words.

Stressful, restless and yet blissful.

2. Write the name of 2 people who have characterized your 2016.

Every day I am characterized by my mother.

Also I am impressed and inspired daily by all of the wonderful bloggers out there sharing their story, their life to inspire others 😉

3. Write about the most beautiful place you’ve visited in 2016 and why you liked it so much.

Sandbanks Beach; we haven’t traveled too much in 2016 due to work and school duties 🙂 but my better half and I discovered a beach not too far from our city that really made our summer: Sandbanks Beach: best beach in Ontario, Canada.

4. Write the most delicious food you’ve tasted in 2016.

As  you might know by now I love curry so in 2016 for my birthday my husband invited me to a Indian Buffet: Tate of India, so all I could eat was curry. LOL
