Hope your Friday is going well 🙂
February was unusually cold this time, we expect a -11 degrees next week. Some of you may disagree and call this normal – but my comparison period is that of the past two years and these years have been much better than what we are experiencing.
Now for an update from my end ..
Our stay in Erlangen will end in a few months. The project DH is currently overseeing will be completed and we will pack our bags back to India. Yooohoooo.
If I bring this news to our friends here – a frequently asked question – isn’t it sad that you are leaving? And that surprises me. Why should I be sad to go back home? We came here for an experience and we enjoyed it as long as it lasted, but we are not desperate to stay here. I know a lot of expats who are trying very hard to find a job here and to continue living here. We had the opportunity to apply for a permanent residence permit, but decided against it. It’s just a matter of choice.
Of course, this place is beautiful, peaceful, and clean; But our hearts are happiest when we are in our own home. So the last month was an inventory of what should and shouldn’t be withdrawn. We still have a few months here, but our apartment here has already been booked by the next tenant – there seems to be a serious shortage of apartments for people who are new to this place.
So that’s the news. Now for the completed projects.
I sewed roses again, this time a little more elaborate.
I know – you might call out – What, roses again? !!
Well, you have to try to get something new under control many times;)
It turned out as I imagined it, except for the fabric. I tried to embroider on Malkha – a mixture of Mal-Mal and Khadi, which is popular as a wearable and is great for summer.
And here is my attempt to frame it. The area inside the flower loop looks like this due to the thinness of the fabric – otherwise it is closely framed.
Do you think a darker, simpler frame would have been better? I didn’t use any glue or tape and changing the frame would be very easy.
I plan to give this to one of our friends as a farewell gift. Hopefully it will be liked and appreciated.
The next one is a crochet skirt for my one and a half year old niece. My husband’s younger brothers gave birth to their first daughters during our stay here – we need to reconnect and introduce ourselves to the little ones as soon as we return 🙂 My daughter has to take her position as a big sister of two little girls. 🙂 🙂
The older one I crocheted the skirt for is chubby for her age and I hope it fits. If not them, then it goes to the second. But she was born with a small heart defect and is too small for her 8 months. It will take a while for her to wear it. Let’s see who gets it 🙂
This is my contribution for today. I smile everyone !!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Have a nice weekend!!
Love, happiness and sunshine,
