While away

Seven weeks.

Many things happened while I was away. This, first of all. And after the shock of such abrupt and unexpected change, things started to slowly go back to a new normal.

Summer was spent between diapers, embroidery, ice cream, fun weekend escapes and a bit of traveling too. We went north and south and touristed around the country. Our baby dipped her toes in the ocean and smelled the sea breeze.

We had fun.

Now it’s time to ease back into work mode. There’s a new knitting workshop date announced (October 11th, here in Lisbon); the Embroidery Club is one year old and growing (come join the fun!); and I have some fun illustration work to share with you soon.

Thanks for being there.


Muito se passou enquanto estive ausente. O nascimento dos meus gémeos, em primeiro lugar, e a perda do meu bebé. E depois do (enorme) choque, a vida, como só ela sabe, começou logo o seu processo de regresso a um novo normal.

O Verão foi passado entre fraldas, bordado, gelado (finalmente sem diabetes!), escapadas de fim-de-semana e curtas, curtíssimas férias. Passeámos pelo norte e sul do país, ficam a faltar as ilhas. A nossa bebé molhou os pés no oceano, porque nunca é cedo demais para lhe incutir a nossa identidade atlântica.

Foi bom.

Agora está na hora de voltar ao trabalho: há nova data de workshop de tricot; o Clube de Bordado já fez um ano e continua a crescer (vamos?); em breve partilharei novos trabalhos de ilustração.

Obrigada por estarem aí.
