It’s my birthday month and what a wonderful one it has been as well as an emotional one for me.
My friend Charmain moved away from Hong Kong and it was very emotional leading up to moving day. She has become one of my closest friends here. Our kids go to school together, we craft together (with our dear friend Sonia) and I felt very happy seeing her on a daily basis. I truly appreciate our friendship and how kind, understanding and loving she is. It’s truly empty here without her but thanks to modern technology we are able to keep in touch quite easily.
Before she left she gave me these beautiful calligraphy pens and book because she remembered that I picked up hand lettering as a new hobby. She is always thoughtful and remembers all the small details. I really miss her and her daughters so much.
My husband got me all my favourite wish list items for my birthday. I’ve been eyeing Paintbox Yarns for quite sometime now. I love their packaging, their colours and the soft feel of their yarns. I can’t wait to try these out soon. I am planning to make a sweater for my son. I want to make amigurumi with them too so I’ll be sure to design something for these yarns specifically.
Another wishlist item is anything by Wool and The Gang! I drool every single time I see their newsfeed and always want their items. So my husband got me the “What’s Love” top kit and I’m already half finished. The yarn feels like silk and is animal product free! So my vegan friends are sure to love it.
The day that Charmain left, my husband had work in Macau. My son and I joined him there and we chilled by the pool and I whipped out my Tunisian crochet. I am starting to make things in anticipation for the winter time and to slowly start stocking my etsy shop.
I hope everyone is having a lovely June. I may be missing my friend dearly but I am ever so thankful for the time spent together with her. Even though we may be far apart but she and her daughters will never be far from our hearts.
If you have a friend who is dear to you, give them a huge hug. ❤
