Teddy or Kitty amigurumi? Osita o gatita?

I started this project wanting to do a teddy bear, but when doing her face I realized it looked more like a kitty.   So I pulled a bit her ears to make them more “pointy”.

Comencé este projecto queriendo hacer una osita pero al armar la carita parecía más una gatita, así que estiré más las orejas para hacerlas puntiagudas.




My dear friend Stella http://stellacrosssstitch.blogspot.com/ has awarded me with the Liebster Blog Award.  Silly me just realized how the award works.  Thank you so much Stella for thinking on me.   I would love to blog more but I don’t always have the time.

Some background: Liebster is a German word, meaning favourite, dearest or beloved. The Liebster is awarded by bloggers to other, newer bloggers, who have fewer than 200 followers, to spread the word and help the newbies gain wider recognition.

The award comes with four conditions that each recipient must satisfy when accepting:

1. Post the award on your blog.  Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

2. Choose five up-and-coming blogs (with fewer than 200 followers) to award the Liebster to.

3. List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites. Leave comments on their blogs so they know about the award.

4. Share 5 random facts about yourself that people don’t know about you.

And the 5 blogs I have chosen are:

1.  Sandra:  http://blogdesandramaria.blogspot.com/  She does lovely work.

2. Mylene:  http://crafterintexel.blogspot.com/  Wonderful cross stitch work.

3. Marita: http://www.myowncraftblog.blogspot.com/  lovely crocheting

4.  Susi:  http://susimac.blogspot.com/  Beautiful stitching and I love the fact that she spells her name as I do it.

5.  Zire:  http://telasbotonesyotrascositas.blogspot.com/  beautiful sewing projects. Very inspiring.

About me:

1.   I am not a public person, so having a blog is a real challenge.  

2.  I love cute things.

3.  I love kisses and hugs.

4.    I am very chatty but enjoy silent moments as well.

5.  I love to cook and of course to eat.

Trip to Cusco – Viaje al Cusco

I spent some lovely days in Cusco with my family.  The weather couldn’t be better, sunny and hot.  Only one day of raining at Machu Picchu but it didn’t stop us to vist the ruins.   As a knitter, I searched for yarn, alpaca and baby alpaca but the prices were outrageous.   Prices for tourists that I was not going to pay.

Fui a Cusco por unos dias con mi familia.  Pase unos dias magnificos.  El clima no pudo estar mejor, soleado y con calor.  Solo nos toco un dia de lluvia en Machu Picchu, pero eso no impidio que visitemos las ruinas.  Como buena tejedora busque lanas, especialmente alpaca y baby alpaca, pero los precios eran excesivamente caros, precio para turistas, que no estuve dispuesta a pagar.
