For me, spending precious time with my family comes first, but then is my second nature, crafting, looking for new ideas, finding inspiration in everything around me, trying to "see" the "how to" my next project can be done. It is simply the reason why every day along this past 12 (or more) months, I felt first that eagerness to think, create and make something or taking pictures, than posting. I was active on Flickr, for fast uploading one or two images and "run" for the next project. Then comes cooking and eventually traveling. We had the chance to go many wonderful places including Cuba.
I'll try to illustrate the gap with some pictures.

I must say, I had fun making patterns for a square, a corner and a side to fill the space between circles.
I was fascinated about 3D crochet, an easy to follow pattern for a little hat
