Today I'm very crafty.. and as I have to go back to Turin today, and my 250 km are waiting for me, I thought I could spend my morning doing something amusing. I have enough time to study in 4 hours in the train .
For this reason, I had inspiration from this blog. Trixi made her owl look really like an owl, I made some mistakes, and thought I could make some indeterminate animal.
She filled it with rice, I will use it as pencil case. I filled it to take the picture.
I hope you like it.
I will not sew, make things with fimo, etc for another week, friday evening I will be here again.
Again, the picture is bad because of the webcam.
Have a nice day!

I woke up today, and since I'm home (after two looong weeks in Turin, and after my English Literature Exam) I could make the project I've been thinking about for a few days.
A colleague of Roberto asked if I could make a puppet for her granddaughter. So, I looked ik a few blogs, because I didn't know what kind of puppet I could make. Then, I saw this fantastic and adorable owl byKatie of Skunkboy Creatures. This was my inspiration to make my own owl.
I made his eyes, heart and beak of fimo. The beak is just a little too big, but, for being the first time I am pretty satisfied. This is the result :
I know it isn't a good picture, but I forgot to bring my camera with me, so I had to do it with the webcam.
The fabric is from Ikea, I love it..
This afternoon I am going to see "Romeo + Juliet" for the fourth time in 5 days.. Ahah!

I haven't had time in these days. That's because tomorrow I have the English Literature Exam.
But these month I did a lot of funny things..
My roommate and I made fantastic Pizza :
We ate it with her cousin and our friend Andrea.
Then, I went to the cycle track that we have close to the sea, with Roberto and my parent, it was funny 'cause Roberto and I went with the tandem, and I had so much problems with riding it.
And when I was alone at home, here in Turin, I made cookies!!
And saturday Roberto and I went to the Ikea.. I bought a lot of colorful fabrics ^^
I'm looking forward to see my parents again, and also Miele, I miss them..
I'm going back to my books..
