Love



"Perfect love is rare indeed - for to be a lover will require that you continually have the subtlety of the very wise, the flexibility of the child, the sensitivity of the artist, the understanding of the philosopher, the acceptance of the saint, the tolerance of the scholar and the fortitude of the certain."
Quote from Leo Buscaglia"
I crochet my hearts thinking about the many people I love, and that I am lucky to have encountered....

Mermaid time

“Magic 
Sandra’s seen a leprechaun, 
Eddie touched a troll, 
Laurie danced with witches once, 
Charlie found some goblins gold. 
Donald heard a mermaid sing, 
Susy spied an elf, 
But all the magic I have known 
I've had to make myself.”  Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends
Coral, sea-pie, and Sandy came from Aruba, their voice will enchant you, they carry the sea breeze, the sound of the waves and a charming smell of coconut…beware of the mermaids spell….;-D

Monterey's Safari

Giffy The Giraffe was born on a flight from Boston to San Francisco, I was sitting next to my husband, with my crochet, observing the two flight attendants going through the motions, There was barely any eye contacts and very little emotions shared, ok to be perfectly honest, the "Crankyness levometer" was very high….tough job really to be a flight attendant. Seriously….I can not imagine having to deal with all the specimens that our human kaleidoscope has to offer. I have barely enough patience for my family and my friends on any given day….
It took about an hour for my Giffy to take form…it turned into this adorable orange thing that no one, I say no one can resist to….Needless to say that the flights attendants and I became best friends by the end of my Crochet flight….the Miracle of a simple crochet hook, and some yarn….it brings a smile to even the crabbiest of us….
