I feel creative this weekend. Have been thinking of something that I might be able to make as Christmas gift, I came up with some ideas.
Right… My cross stitch has shown a little bit of progress. Please don’t slag me off because I KNOW that this is not from the original DMC pattern. I did not know when I bought that from e-bay because I was very much a noob when I bought this. But I won’t chug it away because I paid for it too. Yes, I will be more careful next time.
I haven’t been very active lately, and to be honest with you I wasn’t doing anything much either. The top photo is how my project looks like when I left it for Indonesia a month ago, and the bottom photo is how it looks now. I need to stop slacking, and finish this so that I can move on.
Back to the real world, I was shocked when I heard about what happened to Paris. I was having a late night, replying to my e-penpal (yes I am doing e-penpaling now, YAY) while listening to the radio when I heard about it. My husband and I were horrified, and instantly thought of our friend, a lovely French lady who lives here in Norwich.
I want to send our sympathy, to France, to Paris, and especially to people who are affected by this horrible horrible terrorist attack. I believe that the French strength and perseverance would show them how violence force wouldn’t break the French spirit.
Vive La France.
Just few days before my departure to Indonesia, a package arrived through my front door. Obviously, since my husband has got no online shopping addiction, it was a package for me. It was they dolls eyes I ordered some times ago. Just the right time to complete the gifts for little ones in Indonesia.
I still don’t like kids, but who appreciates cute dolls more than kids? Apparently adults like them as well as kids. How surprising. I went to Indonesia with 8 dolls, I came back to Norwich with none. Nobody paid me nothing 😦
Oh look at them. Their eyes obviously has changed their appearance a lot. I have made some special bears I tried to design myself, and quite proud of how it finished. Happy that they’ve got their new homes now. I suppose I could go on and start a new little amigurumi family.
I am back!!
Sheesh… How long since the last time I posted anything?
Obviously, I have got a very reasonable justification for my long absence. I went back to Indonesia for my sister’s wedding. Yay!!
I have to admit that it’s a bit of bittersweet seeing her now married. But of course, overall I am so happy that she has found someone who she could nag the rest of her life. Good luck my new brother in law…
Oh… right. The reason why I haven’t posted a thing since ages ago is that… First, I was busy helping around. On my wedding day, it was my sister who was the one helping out. I thought it would be just right to return the favour. Second, there’s no stable enough internet connection (wi-fi) in our house. Well, there is, but I would have to sit on the living room without the air conditioner (do you know how hot it was in Indonesia? 40 degree Celsius). Yes of course I could blog with my phone, but it will take longer to finish a post (and I was busy, remember?).
The wedding was a success. Everybody was happy, and my sister was sooo incredibly pretty, and I am so proud seeing her walked the aisle. Gosh, I am a bit teary even to think about that. Anyway, I should end this soon, by showing you what I’ve made for her. Have been keeping it as a secret for weeks because I wanted to make this as a surprise. And a surprise it was…
Heh heh… so proud of this. I modify the pattern a bit, so I could fit in the writing on it. I think it fits quite well. Tee hee.
Anyway… It’s getting a bit late here, so I would just go and have some (more) beauty sleep. See you later…
