Our Kentan Chickens (Kenyan chickens #1)
I knew our chickens were Kenyans from the first day I gave them chapatis. The ensuing battle over every scrap of the food was all the proof I needed. The love for chapatis is ingrained in ever Kenyan man and woman, girl and boy, and creature alike. – I wouldn’t be surprised if even elephants or snakes like them. When the chickens saw the Chapati they started running around and chasing each other. Ducking and stealing the food from each other’s beak. They looked like ninja spy assassins on a mission from their respective local leaders. I wondered if they were playing a game or whether they were serious about starving if they

Happy New Year
I hope 2020 brings everyone a lot of happiness, peace, good challenges, and productivity in whatever form you create with. I hope to keep up here and continue to create for myself and others.  To not let life get in the way nor let everyone else always be "first".  Family, friends, and work come first so much that this year I found I need to take back a bit of the time for myself.  For my sanity and peace. So I start the New Year finishing a large cross stitch project: Large projects have been intimidating me of late so I'm doing this, not only for the gift exchange (read description) but for myself.  I'm stepping up and being me.  I'm tir

D.E.S.I.G.N. - A monthly project goal
Welcome to Stitching Pirates the Cross Stitching Juggernaut. Aims & How to join + Submission Guidelines + Advertisements & Links + Facebook Group :ahoy: Ahoy, me hearties! Back in 2015 our officer Fusainne (https://www.deviantart.com/fusainne) had a thing called D.E.S.I.G.N. (which stands for Designer Everyone Should Instantly Get to Notice).

Basically this event is about getting different designers featured. :) It can be large companies like Dimensions or Janlynn but the true goal is to give exposure to small designers that may be no more

Travelling light
Sometimes when girl meets boy, the boy becomes the saviour of the girl. The girl loves the boy, cares for him and showers him with attention because she believes to finally have found somebody who she can invite in her home to fill up her empty spaces. However, in this case, the boy only came with one suitcase holding all of his love and belongings, and you cannot build a life out of one suitcase. Giselda opened up her heart and house for the boy anyway and poured all the love she had in the boy's suitcase. She thought love worked like that, and maybe that’s true. Only the suitcase of the boy stayed shut while her house was getting emp
