My first Amigurumi Bear

Iam sick, suffering from a strange flu in July, since Friday so I stayed at home and only went out once on Friday to have some lunch I wanted to drink hot soup and bcoz of my flu wasnt able to cook. We had our lunch , my husband and I , then we stayed for a couple of hours to relax.We then went home and I took my medicine and went to sleep , hoping that the next day I will be ok. Then saturday came and its getting worse, so I started thinking outside the box to entertain me at home, it seems I wil be stuck here more :) I was looking forward to crochet my first amigurumi since my last post was abut Japan and this is a well know Japanese art.

I googled and found this, didnt follow the pattern , made it a little shorter. Let me share it and share my edited pattern.

My Editted Pattern:
1-Made Front and Back the same colour.
2-Chained 25 and folded it, making the front and back.
3-The length of the body instead of 12 cm made it 8 cm.
I couldnt find any buttons for the eyes ,mouth or nose so this is wht I did:
  • Eyes: Chain 4, sc in first stitch from the hook, then sc 6 in this same first stitch then close, u will get a small circle which I used for the eyes.
  • Mouth: Chained 4 then fasten it off and fix to be the mouth.
  • Nose:Made one stitch for this.

    The Original Pattern can be viewed as below :

Lesson#5:Crochet is such a blessing, it makes my sickness and stay at home, extremely fun.

Fix you

I love this song...its my sunshine in dark..
Thank you really made my day....
Enjoy it and feel the below lyrics....

Fix you

When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down on your face
When you lose something you cannot replace

Tears stream down on your face
And on your face I...Tears stream down on your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down on your face
And on your face I...

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Its July :)

When July comes, Iam someone else or at least I try to :) My birthday is near and Iam getting older each day to reach a complete new year.Last year I wanted to make the whole month special so I saved some money and bought myslef each week some new cloth just to make me feel better as I wasnt in a good mood then.

This year, July came suddenly :) and I wasnt prepared with my "29 to be" birthday plan.
Then the first day has passed and the second day is approaching, I think, how will I make this month so special and how do I define special this year and Iam supose to be more smarter this year. I love shopping and buying stuff but I never buy me cloth to wear except if its my Eid's cloth and I stay all the year searching for my new cloth to be worn during the Eid prayers. This is why last year I thought it would be a good choice to do something, I dont do often.

This year Iam in complete confusion, how will I celebrate my July ?
I want to teach me new virtues, not sure if this is the correct word but I have been wishing to train myself to be a better wife and hopefully a good mom if Iam lucky to have any :)

But Iam lucky coz, praise be to Allah coz I was postponing a certain family meeting but wizout knowing,I took the decision to "Just do it" and invite them over today which was the 1st day in July. This happened last week,I was out of Cairo and I was breathing fresh air so I was put in a brand new mood :)

The journey to my July, this year , is simply trying to walk through my fear,walk and not run which means this may take some time but I will surely complete my marathon even if it seems that the distance to walk is endless.

I hope I can come up wiz 31 learned lessons and maybe even print it out and hang it on my wall, to be my 29th Tito's birthday gift to me .

Lesson#1: Just Do it and Walk through my fear
Lesson#2: It doesnt matter if what you want is terribly belated, just be patient, and once it happens you will feel that you are the most happiest person on earth and that all words to praise GOD for this,will never be enough.
Lesson#3: I make the best Om Ali and I do have my secret ingredient ;)

Still have 28 to go :)
