The day the bugs attacked and a cowl for Liz

Reading:  Sourcery -Terry Pratchett’s Discworld

Listening: Autumn Leaves ❤

Making: Queen Anne’s lace Scarf for Fanny.

Today my alarm clock didn’t go off… but I never manage to be late for work really,  or for anything, I’m that neurotic about it, I have my father to blame for that one.  I had to take a cab to the office since my two buses were not going to take me there on time, I usually talk to cab drivers, but this one was quite happy with letting me read. 

We got there and I stopped by the store quickly, got a juice and some peanuts, said hi to Manuel the very serious sausage puppy and the two cats I always see in on my way, opened the gate and walked towards the sliding glass door, I look up and BAM!!!!! a spider as big as my hand… I screamed in terror, my boss and co-worker could not believe the size of the thing. 

We managed to set it free somewhere very far away from the office. I still get chills thinking about it,  we got pictures first and If my co-worker (aka teddy-bear) sends them to me I will be posting to share the terror.  I’m usually ok with spiders,  but I can never be ok with something that big and evil looking, seriously it was like She the spider’s baby…

Also I got attacked by pissed bumble bees and a bird that went into my house for no reason what so ever and got out on his on with very suspicious ease….

Moving on…

My roomie Liz is moving next month to Guadalajara, which is quite far away from where we live now,  and I decided to hook her up a quick present, Guadalajara is colder so she will be able to  wear it.  Since here in  Horncow ( the actual name is Cuernavaca, but hell, its funnier in english.)  we have crazy weather, I mean, it just rained… in autumn…wtf… and it’s hot all day long.

So here it is,  she was nice enough to model it for me.

I was very happy with the result and it was quite easy to make, I made a chain until I was happy with the length then,  round of hdc, round of dc, round of trbl, round of dc, round of hdc and so on and so on, also I always buy varicoloured yarn and I never know what to do with it,  this one  was very soft and she liked it very much, it’s made so she can tuck it into her jackets. 

I also finished the poke-ball scarf for the miniature critic, I’ll be posting about it tomorrow, if  I don’t get eaten by a donkey or something of the sort… as things are going it seems perfectly plausible. 

Love and raid spray,

Didi Starfish.


Hello blogosphere, Starfish says helloooooooooooooooooooo!


This Andrea (pronounced And-reh-ah, for it is Hispanic) , a.k.a  Didi Starfish on the interwebs.  I am a 25 year-old tattooed and pierced Mexican girl, who lives in the province of HornCow, Morelos.  I work with phones talking to people in the U.S. as a part time job,  the rest of the time I’m either crafting, crocheting, reading, painting, watching movies or series.  I live in a small social interest house with two room-mates and my red slider turtle, named Wasabi who was inherited to me by a very dear friend. I browse and I read several blogs, rarely commenting, and that is gonna change now!

Tis me in my sexy pose

Tis me!!!

My life keeps suffering changes and since I went independent on January this year, I’ve been learning how to handle broken bathrooms, bills, house cleaning/keeping and making ends meet, living on a very tight budget.

But I’m happy as happy can be,  I’m with the most amazing human being I have ever met, I call him penguin,  he lives in Mexico City but I get to see him on weekends, ALL  weekend.  He is a very talented musician and I think he is the awesomest thing since the internet, and Zeus knows I love the internet.

He is the butter to my bread. ❤

And I have plans to move to the Big City once again since I’m originally from there. So here you will have my adventures doing so, finding a job, a place to live, moving everything on my own, but most specially, my crochet and crafting, and if you are very lucky and I’m not that shy, you will get my art stuff too, and hopefully my decorating my new place.

Let’s start with that, shall we? 

I been making a bunch of cushion covers,  all taken from the amazing Alice in Crochet with Raymond, she has amazing patterns and colour goodness.

This granny mandala soon to be cushion is  for my friend Jesh’s mother.  Who needs a bit of rainbow in her life.

More cushions to come.

As of now I’m in official X-mas gift making, pics will come as I finish them.

But here we have a  To-Do list, so I do not forget.

Pokemon scarf for the mini critic – 80% done  pattern from A bowl of yarn, a skein of noodles.

Queen Anne’s lace scarf for Fanny, my mother, Irene.

Some cool boyish scarf for Juli.

Some other cool scarf for Dany.

Scarf that matches bear hat I made for the bf.

A little somthing for a little papaqui creature if i can get it to her.

Hat for Israel.

That being my first post and me being quite satisfied by it, I shall now say good night, since starfish sleeping hours approach.

Love and Glitter,

Didi Starfish.
