And what a fox said?

... And he went back to the fox:
'Goodbye,' he said.
'Goodbye,' said the fox. 'Now here is my secret, very simply: you can only see things clearly with your heart. What is essential is invisible to the eye.'
'What is essential is invisible to the eye,' repeated the little prince, so as to remember.
'It is the time you have wasted on your rose that makes your rose so important.'
'It is the time I have wasted on my rose...' repeated the little prince, so as to remember.
'People have forgotten this truth,' said the fox. 'But you must not forget. You become responsible, for ever, for what you have tamed. You are responsible for your rose.'
'I am responsible for my rose ...' the little prince repeated, so as to remember.

... the snatch from "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry 


This book belongs to my favorite. I remember, that I understand it's meaning and depth when I was 24. The time is flying so fast. I still like it very much :-)

Well now, I made my own Little prince and his friend the Fox :-) And I really enjoyed it. So my dears, do you read this book? And what is your favorite?

Coffee party

Hi my dears,
some time ago I read some motivational sentence. It was something like: "Keep your head high, your glutes tight and your coffee strong :-) Well, after I read this, I smiled, it definitely belongs to my life ... :-)

So the strong coffee is on my table, I keep my head high and I wish I could claim the same of my glutes ... LOL. Oooh, just a little bit of humor for Thuesday! :-)


Well, I was busy like a bee. I am busier then I am posting on socials, but I'll be better, I promise :-) I made some new coasters. I like them very much. They are easy to make, quite fast, but you know, I always have to add some beads and buttons. If you would like to make one or two too :-), the pattern is ready and tested and it is in my stores already.


So I wish you succesful week, my dears. 
Let's the coffee party begin! :-)

On the blue line

Hi my dears,
I am slowly recovering :-) and I have a good new. My hand is not at 100% percent but it is much more better, then it was. I can crochet again. And I missed my colorful world and you so much! 



And I guess I am on the blue line.... and I really like it :-) 
I am so excited, to show you my next projects. 

See you soon, my dears!

Just Hi :-)

Hi my dears,
when I look on my latest post - this is crazy - it is a month! I am sorry, I didn't write a word. My mood is on zero level. I still have the after flu complication with my hand... still no crocheting, writting, sewing... So if you are waiting for some news or promised patterns, I have to appologize to you, I am still not working on it. My hooks are sad and lonely and I am getting really nervous. Some tests were through me, some infront of me and still no treatment, grrrrrrrrrr. But quit with the grumbling!!! I will try to work on some rests, if my hand allow to me and I promise to you, when I will recover, my hook will be on the fire again! :-) 


I hope, you have nice Spring time :-) I am amazed of the trees in blossom. I really admire it! These wonderful moments, when I rise my head up and see this beauty, forces me to stop and calm down...



At the end of April, it was a witches rally in our coutry again. So I made an easy witch costume for my little magic creature :-) The missing teath she managed by herself, very well timing! :-D



And finally I learned great yummy cupcake cream - thank you very much Katusko :-) - it looks, that I becoming a big girl:-) So I made sweet little cupcakes with witches hats on the top - for the children to the Kindergarten.




My dears, even in the crocheting or sewing or baking, stay creative! :-) And I hope, I will join you again soon! 

Yours,
Vendulka
