A little fish

My Greek girlfriend rarely swims in the sea, she likes to enter and talk about all sorts of things. This is what a successful day at the beach looks like for her. I, on the other hand, like swimming and moving in the water, unthinkable for me to just stand inside and do nothing.

Some time ago we were at the sea, she was standing in the water and I swam around her: a little bit forward, then backwards, just enough to talk to her. But after a short time my friend screamed, something had tweaked her. Continue reading A little fish

New Pattern: Small rabbit

I wanted to crochet a little rabbit for a long time. It was supposed to look like a real rabbit and I wanted to sew as few pieces as possible. I tried this once in the spring, but I was not really happy with my result.

Actually, I did not want to pick up again the subject with the rabbit. I had realized that it is not possible, not as I imagined. Sometimes the pattern was too complicated, sometimes it did not look like a rabbit. So I put it in my basket for failed attempts and unhooked the topic.

Daddy is expecting a baby

Can a man get pregnant?
Yes … – if it is a seahorse. Seahorses are the only animals in the world where males carry babies. When two seahorses find each other, a long love and romantic dance begins. They rub their cheeks together and hold hands, oops, I mean they hook their tails together. Then the female puts her eggs in the belly pocket of the male. Once fully developed, they hatch and go foraging by themselves.
