currently loving ...

... working on this 

virago still coming along and I'm loving working on it
another northbound knitting pattern and THAT yarn!

the idea of this crochet retreat in Marrakech that I found out about at Crochet Concupiscence

A creative event in Jeddah!

this bag
this clever idea - Tashkeil is a local organisation and this infographic highlights how they help independent designers. You do have to have some knowledge of the Arabic script and the vowel system to fully appreciate the concept. To give you an idea, the red icon at the top is "fat-ha" which, in Arabic, gives the vowel sound similar to the "a" in "apple", obtained by the opening of the jaws. Here it is used to depict the opening of minds!

The seven habits of calmness

and cleaning out my inboxes! 

What are you in to these days?

I love the patterns and colors of that shawl - gorgeous! I am still working on my crochet, but I've also returned to my true love - cross-stitch. I've recently finished cross-stiting a moose that is going to be the front of a tea cozy for my mother whose birthday is next month.

Kathryn, I'm wishing and hoping I can go sometime!

Heather, show us your crochet and cross-stitch! :)

Hi Ishrat!!
Love seeing that you're still creating and being active!!
I am loving knitting, too, in this last period and I am looking forward to find a bit of time to start learning "Fair Isle" knitting!
