Cute Vietnamese doll I bought in Ben Thanh Market πŸ™‚

 

I miss my crochet hook so much.Β  If I’m not holding a makeup brush, I’m probably holding a beaker making perfume.Β  And now, as I look back on our photos during our trip to Vietnam with my husband, I remember the cute crocheted dolls we saw… I so want to pick up my hook and create my handmade creatures once again πŸ™‚

Last year, I was obsessed with making superheroes… I think this year will be different.
