Hello my dear friends!
It certainly had been time to change my blog for the longest time and I finally got around to it. Hope you enjoy the new look.
Life have been full to the brim. There's been some creativity and craftiness but I hadn't time to take photos and blog. Rather then one big entry, it'll probably be more palatable in small doses. So, here's one update.
Some friends and I decided one day to go for claying lessons. Thus we engineered our foray into clay. That was fun! We were all given a tour and explanation on how it is done and then given basic instructions on how to do a simple bowl. Unfortunately, by the time we remembered we had a camera, our hands were all so full with clay, there was no one left to take pictures. We all had fun building our lopesided clay bowls. After we were done, we left them there for the baking and finishing process to be picked up after 2 weeks. So here's my lopesided clay container.
Miss Branching Out was a gift meant for my Aunt in US. I've been dragging my feet on it for the longest time after I messed up the instructions and sat on my wooden needles during a tense moment in CSI: Miami. Yes, one of my wooden needles broke. I was so upset after I didn't look at it for a long time. (*Yes, I do realize it wasn't Miss Branching Out's fault)
After neglecting it in my WIP pile for so long, I jumped when I realized that my deadline was up. Mom was going to US and I only had a few days left before she does. I was definitely out of time. I had to whip her out, fast. This time round I really enjoyed the pattern better then my first time. Kinda sad when I reached the end of the scarf. But anyway, I barely had time to finish blocking it. I had just enough time to hang it on the laundry pole and snap a hurried picture before mom carried it off to be packed.
I wish I didnt' procrastinated so I could take a better picture. This picture really does not do justice to the color of the yarn. It was a beautiful blue with wisp of gold and red thread running through it so that the color changes subtly every 5 inches or so. But I was very glad it turned out so pretty. Anyway, pretty lil Miss Branching Out is now with my aunty.
