Detail of the japanese flower scarf I made for my friend Camino. Didn't have much time to take pics for during those days Mom was still recovering from hospital.
Detail of the new shawl I made for Mom. It's quite big. She's very chilly most of the time so I made something big enough to keep her warm. She loves it!
Feliz labor - Happy hooking

AQUÍ Están en inglés pero hay gráficos, lo que facilita mucho las cosas... Debo pensar muy seriamente empezar a traducir patrones...Porque hay autenticas maravillas en la red. Estoy a la espera de un par de libros de crochet japoneses que compré online...La verdad es que hacen autenticas bellezas... FELIZ VIDA - FELIZ LABOR. It seems to me it has been ages since I last showed up there in Blogland. I'm crafting quite a lot of things. I've even received some orders and I must confess that I haven't either posted or photographed the things I've made. MEA CULPA. Mom is doing quite good. It seems that the root of the problem, besides her Dementia, was that she had an Urine Infection. And this infection altered negatively all the body. We have no clue since when she was suffering this infection. One thing I've learnt: a slight infection, little fever, constipation, etc.etc. can severly alter the state of health of a aged person. So if anyone reading this blog is taking care of an old person and observes that there are slight changes in states of mood etc. Please take in consideration these issues. If Dad and I had know these things we would have saved so much time and stress. Now Mom is doing well taking in consideration that next January she'll be 90 years old. This will be a celebration! A couple of months I hooked this garland for my lovely little cousin Belén. She loved it so much that she wants to re-use it for her Christmas Tree this year. I'm working on my Christmas cards and Presents for my far-away friends. I thingk this year they will be surprised for it will not be a very traditional theme. Once I've finished all the crafting I promise I'll post everything... I know that my pics aren not of a very good quality...I think I must do an online course...with my simple camera. Pattern instructions for this garland are HERE I must seriously think of translating these patterns in Spanish...there are just so many wonderful thing on the web. HAPPY LIFE - HAPPY HOOKING!
