I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. I’ve never tried to crochet something on such a small scale. It looks like an adorable book!

    1. Thanks, Priscilla. It is, indeed, adorable, and it would make a lovely self-gift as well. (I’ve been working on a bed cover for ages, but it’s an on-and-off project. My mother used to do smaller things but hasn’t done much crocheting recently). I hope you like it. Stay safe.

  2. Not something for me, (perhaps understandably) but I am sure it will have a huge appeal to the Crafting community.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. No, I didn’t imagine it would be your thing, but one never knows what might appeal as a present for somebody else. Stay safe and enjoy the rest of the week, Christmas preparations and all!

  3. Hi Olga, thank you for the shout out, I really appreciate it. This book looks amazing. My mother is the knitter in my house and makes the most beautiful jerseys and other knitted items. She doesn’t crotchet, but she might like this book. She has knitted a few toys too. I really like this post. Thank you.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I was enchanted by the doll and her costumes, and it reminded me of your wonderful characters and little people. I love the fairies you posted on Facebook recently.
      I am a terrible knitter (I’ve only ever made a little jumper for a doll) and I find crochet more portable (I kept dropping stitches when I was knitting. At least there’s only one when you crochet!), but you might be right about your mother, and I think some of the elements could be done knitting (perhaps all of them).
      I look forward to your new creations and thanks for all the inspiration. Regards to the family and keep safe.

    What an interesting book Olga. I’m not much into crafting, but I imagine it would be a fun project to try for those who are. Thanks for the introduction. Hugs <3

    1. Thanks, Debby. I saw a picture of a nativity made with amigurumi figurines and it looked really cute. A lot of people seem to have taken on crafting projects during the lockdown, so I thought it might make a good present. And the outfits are fun. Take care and wrap up warm. ♥
