For the little feet

 A couple weeks ago I came across this talented girl: Erika Tricroche I'm trying to learn how to crochet and her blog is a lovely source of inspiration (she just posted a tutorial on how to make the slipers!!!!!!! Yaaaay!).  I saw this unbelievebly cute pair or home shoes at her Flickr's place.  Got in touch w/ her and asked her to make this for my niece, Ana.
Now you tell me: arent they just the cuttest ones?! My sister texted me and let me know she already got it at the mail, and that she was super pleased. Gee... I wonder why... Lol. Erika sent it dearly wrapped, with an adorable note and with some fragrance that hooked my sister's heart. *Ü*

just hope I can manage to crochet that perfect. I'm trying hard. Really hard. I learned a lot from YouTube, and the funny thing is that I know the stitches names in English, but get lost when I want to try it in Port. Lol. Plus, my stitches are way too tight. Need to work on that. Hopefully I will be good for next year's Xmas. I don't know if I can make such neat things like Erika, but... fingers crossed! =)
To all of you, a big kiss and a great Saturday night!

 And here, finally, my last finishing!!!!!! Yaaaaay! I was missing actually finishing something, and this was such an easy and quick to complete project! I stitched it in around 1 week, I'm proud to say. Hee hee... Those kitties are going to be used to cover the lid of a box for my sister, as a Xmas gift. She is crazy about cats!
This design is from a Korean company named "Shiny Room": SR-P58.


Edited note: So a few girls commented on the similarity between this design and a Margaret Sherry's one. It was a surprise for me, because I didn't know about the MS one. Now that I did my research I am impressed on how much they look like! OMG. Here you can see the design I used, and here you can see the MS one.
Thanks Simone, Ana, Sue, Isabella and Nia for pointing me out! =)

Pedophile's Guide - are you for real?!

Ok... I know I've not been posting any cross stitching related entries ( I have quite a few finishings, but with a broken cam I am reduced to a cell's cam and ... anyways...), and this one is not different, but I'm so shocked I can't wait to read any comment about this topic. I mean... did I just hear him saying "respectful relationship between an adult and a child"? Really?!
Is that really possible? Please share your impressions, ladies. Me? I think that guy should be put in jail, like right now... Or some mental institution. Whatever. Free speech or not, this is simply wrong.
