Can't you hear the surprise knocking?



Cuantas cosas caben en un fin de semana, ¿verdad?
How many things fit in a weekend, right?

Tras todo lo planeado y conseguido, hubo incluso momentos de sorpresas
But for all we planned and acomplished, there was time even for surprises

Así es la magia
It's weekend magic



Las niñas encontraron un puñado de sombreros en casa de mis padres y se divirtieron disfrazandose y posando

Girls found a handful of hats at my parents' and had fun disguising in them and posing



Mi amiga Susana me sorprendió con un cuadro de punto cruz minúsculo de una ilustración mía. Me emocionó. Gracias Susana, otra vez.

My friend Susana surprised me with this cross-stichted version of an illustration of mine. It really moved me. Thanks Susana, once again.



Y además, hanna y stardust me han dedicado reinterpretaciones de mis personajes con capucha!

Furthermore, hanna and stardust have made their own interpretations of my hooded characters!

Me encantan los sombreros y el dibujo en punto de cruz ha quedado genial.

PD. Tengo un experimento en mi blog, se llama "ejercicios espirituales". ¿Qué te parecería participar?
