My niece saw on television a report about the Loch Ness monster in Scotland and she was fascinated by the story: Nessie is a monster that, despite many efforts, nobody was able to find it and there are still speculations as to whether it really exists.
When I first saw Peppa, the little piggy-girl, I wondered that Peppa had so many fans. I thought, she did not look sooo cute. My niece agreed with me – Peppa is a design that is made for small children.
End of September begins the most exciting time of the year in my vineyard – the vintage. It is important that it does not rain at the end of the ripening period, because the sugar content of the grapes decreases after a rain.
In October 2013 I was crocheting a Teddy for a small crochet group here in Soufli. I had just begun to write my own patterns and the Teddy was one of my first designs. I wrote this pattern with symbols, because my Greek was still very poor and also it was easier to understand for the women who did not speak English.
As a child I loved the series “Little House on the Prairie”. The plot is quickly told: It’s about the American farmer family Ingalls, 1878 they pack their belongings on a horse cart to look for a new home and end up in Walnut Grove, Minnesota. The couple (Charles u. Caroline) and their three daughters (Mary, Laura and Carrie) struggle with the forces of nature and survive some illnesses. However, they have to work hard and the kids get annoyed by bratty Nellie Oleson.
Look over here, do you know who this is?
In the beginning of January a virus found his way to me and I got sick. The flu was overcome relatively quickly, but I still felt tired, without energy and listless. my body went on strike and I could not do anything against it. I was sad, because my goal this year was and still is: to get fit and lose a few kilos.
When I was 5 years old, I got a wonderful Christmas present – a Barbie. I was the happiest girl in the world! I loved the doll and the clothes and the accessories fascinated me. I had a only a few dresses and shoes, but I had a lot of ideas and so I tinkered her clothes from tissues. Or I made a veil out of it, picked some daisies and I had a bride!
There are only a few more weeks until Christmas and the searching for Christmas gifts has begun.
And maybe you need also a small gift for St. Nicholas Day. Or you play Secret Santa or have colleagues, friends, dear people whom you want to give a small gift. Kindergarten festivals, school parties, celebration with colleagues – the list is endless.
The Amigurumi exhibition in New York (http://resobox.com/amigurumi-artists-15/) begins on 11 December. I take part and my little package is already on the way there.
This time the organizers of the exhibition wanted to show how the Amigurmi culture is developing in each area of the world and they asked for a characteristic or feature of the country or local area.
