I have to tell you that I've found a very nice and interesting blog: Attic24 (you can have a look at it in my blogroll). I started reading it with some curiosity and interest in finding some cute crochet patterns but, after some days, now I've become addicted to it!!!. I read Lucy's posts everyday and enjoy a lot her photographs, patterns, recipes, crochet goodies and her home and the village where she lives. My life may seem very different from hers but it isn't: I live in an appartment in Barcelona (7th floor -Higher than an attic!). I have a nice terrace from where I see the Mediterranean sea (she sees some lovely and greeny hills). Here in Barcelona it's sunny almost everyday and the cold weather hasn't arrived yet. From what I read, in Attic24, weather in North England is cold and wet most of the times in autumn and winter. I think this is the reason why a lot of English women like to stay at home with their kids baking, crochetting, knitting, reading and having nice cups of tea by the fireplace! Here in Barcelona, I usually spend a lot of time out of home, going for a walk or riding my bicycle up and down the city. I used to work in a company but, in february, I quit my job and became a freelancer so I spend now more hours working at home. Besides, I take care of my little daughter as well. I've always loved to make crafts. I started a lot of years ago with cross stitch but, some months ago, I discovered the "Faboulous World of Crochet", through some amigurumi dolls that I saw in a shop. So, I asked my mum to show me how to start crochetting and, thanks to her and thanks, of course, to the Internet tutorials and some books I've been able to crochet some, I think, interesting and nice things for my daughter and home. So, after finding the Attic24 blog, I believe that Lucy and I live in very different countries and see each morning very different landscapes but, at last, we also have a few things in common: we take care of our children, like crochetting, like tea, enjoy the little things of life and are happy with them!!. Well, she also bakes very nice recipes but I'm not very good in the kitchen, but my sister is (have a look at her blog: http://www.kikacakes.blogspot.com/) so I enjoy eating her cakes, cupcakes, brownies and desserts!!!.
Well, with all these words I just wanted to show you a very nice birdie that I made from an Attic24 tutorial. Well, this is my first birdie. I want to make some more using other colours. It could be a very nice Christmas tree ornament, don't you think so?. Thank you Lucy for your posts, patterns and way of life!!!
