inherited talent

If my grandmother Yvette was still alive, today would've been her 96th birthday!

last picture I ever took with my grandma
Now, she is been gone for almost four years and I still miss her.

When Billy (as we used to call her) was alive, she was always a very crafty person, in fact she used to crochet (mostly tablecloths, dollies, and house decoration things) all the time, now I find it kind of ironic that while she was alive and creating some amazing pieces I was never interested in learning that skill.

Years later I decided to get into crochet with the Amigurumi art and now every time I am crocheting I think of her and how much she would've enjoy my creations.

And taking about my latest creations, I am still working on my cat and it's going to be a beautiful one as the pattern is for a Siamese, can't wait to see how it will  turn out.

A couple of days ago my boss brought back from Jamaica these lovely hand made basket and gave me one, I am very happy with it, specially cause it's the perfect place to have all my yarns organized.

Pretty, isn't it?

Well, I know my grandma Billy would've loved to have this color yarns.

Now every time I sit quietly to crochet I think of her and know that my talent comes from her.

So, today if she was still around, I will be singing "Happy Birthday" and giving her a hug.

Instead, I will be saying a prayer so that she keeps giving me inspiration to be a good person (like she was) and asking God that one day I get to see her again in heaven.

Happy Birthday Billy, I love you!!!

On another very exciting note, yesterday I managed to trap the two kittens left (as the third one is being gone for a couple of days), so today I am taking both Goldie and Shadow to get fixed... Hope everything will go well.

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Aw Sunshine, she looks an absolute dearie - and I'm sure she must have had a finger in you getting to learn amigurumi. How precious you had her in your life.
The Jamaica basket with all the colored yarns really inspire creativity - great images - I can't wait to see your new kitty creation.
And that's great news about Goldie and Shadow, I pray all goes well.

your Grandma Billy (Happy Birthday to her!) is smiling down on you continuing her tradition of crocheting...

Now all you need is a kitty to play with that beautiful yarn!
