Last week was very busy!

I had very little stitchy/crafting time since my last update.

Last week my daughter turned 7 and I was really busy getting this ready for her party. It was a really small party just family and two of her close friends but still it kept me busy all week.

My sister Carol and my mom helped a LOT with the organization. Thankfully my daughter enjoyed her birthday and was really happy with everything °Ü°

Since the theme of her birthday was unicorns. I decided to make a little unicorn amigurumi for her. MariaFe loves pink so I made the eyes pink and added eyelashes and blush *Ü*

I'm really happy with the way it turned out and she loves it ♥

On Sunday, I finally was able to pick up my needle and add a few hundred stitches to Ice Princess. Hoping to finish her before the end of 2018.

Enjoy your week! We'll be back with a new update soon °Ü°

2018 Wipocalypse: Kick Off Day

Since I want to start blogging again, I decided to participate in this year's WIPocalypse. Today is the kick off day!

"January 7 – Introduce yourself, your projects, and any goals you have for the year!"

My name is Carla and I live in Lima - Peru. I'm a mom of a almost 7 year girl and love cross stitching and crocheting. 

I participated in a couple of WIPocalypse many years ago and signed up to participate again this year to see if I can finish or at least make a lot of progress on some of my current wips and two new projects I want start this year .  

My first is Ice Princess by Heaven and Earth Designs.  I started this piece in 2014 and it will be a gift for my daughter.

The second piece I want to finish is SO-G39 Alphabet Learning by Soda Stitch. This was my New Year, New Start of 2017. Just a few more letter to add and it will be done!

Next is HAED I started last year called QS Snowflake Wonder. I know I won't finish it this year but I want to finish the first 3 pages (top row pages).

My last wip is Black Hat Society by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. My goal is to finish it before Halloween so I can display it this year.

And two other projects I will be starting this year are Into the Jungle by The Pumpkin Stitchery, and Farmhouse Christmas by Little House Needleworks. I want to keep up with the SALs and finish them both this year.

Here we go again °Ü°

I'm going to start blogging again...let see if this time I can stick with it ;P

My stitching time for the last 2-3 years has been very limited, but I still managed to finish a couple of projects each year (here are the links for my 2016 and 2017 finishes)

For my "2018 New Year, New Start", I chose a small freebie called Summer by The Snowflower Diaries. I chose a small design because this year I want to finish projects and not just stitch so unless I finish one of the larger pieces I'm stitching, I'll only start small designs  that I can actually finish within this year.  

Will be back next week with another update*Ü*

Didn't have a lot of crafty time since my last update but still managed to make some progress on my current projects. Finished the 6th block on Summer Sampler and made a start on the 7th. 

Esta semana no tuve mucho tiempo para mis labores pero aún así pude avanzar un poco mis proyectos. Terminé el 6to bloque de Summer Sampler y ya comencé el 7mo. 

Made some progress on Santa. I really enjoying working on him :)

Avancé un  poco en Santa, realmente disfruto mucho trabajar en él :)

I don't have a crochet finish to show this week, but I did start a little raccoon last night. He needs to be finished by Monday so I'll work on him this weekend. 

Esta semana no tengo un proyecto de crochet terminado, pero anoche comencé un pequeño mapache. Necesito terminarlo para el lunes así que trabajare en él este fin de semana.

Summer SAL progress and a fish

I'm behind on my Mystery SAL, part 2-3-4 have been released already. I'm almost done with part 2 and hopefully next week I will be able to catch up with everyone. I'm very happy with the colors in piece and I think the fabric I chose is perfect for it!

Santa's progress and a crochet finish

Here is my progress so far on Santa's Secret. I'm really enjoying working on him and if I keep up this pace I'm sure I would be able to finish it before Christmas. I'm backstitching as I go so I don't have tons of backstitch at the end.  

Este es mi progreso hasta el momento en Santa's Secret. Estoy disfrutando mucho trabajar en él, si mantengo este ritmo estoy segura podre terminarlo antes de Navidad. Estoy haciendo el pespunte a medida que avanzo así no tengo que hacerlo todo al final.

This week I also finished two amigurumi, one was a test for a pattern that will be released soon so until then I can't share pics. But here is the a little monster I can share, this was a quick project and I think he turned out adorable :P

Esta semana terminé dos amigurumi, uno de ellos no puedo mostrar porque fue un test para un patrón que aun no ha sido publicado. Pero este pequeño monstruo  si les puedo enseñar, un proyecto super rápido y creo que quedó adorable :P

Designer: Smart Apple Creations
Yarn: 100% Acrylic
Hook: 4mm (G)

Finished: 19. August. 2015
