More Crochet Motifs

Last night was dreadful, I mentioned it in last blog. However, at the night time, after my kids went to bed, I finally had my very own time, guess I was gonna do? haha.. that's right, more crochet!!! Yarns and crochet keeps me sane! When I am crocheting I forget most of the unhappy stuff in daily life and focus on the pattern and the yarn and the hook that I am handling, it's so relaxing!~ I made several more motifs last night, it's kinda fun! I think I like to make more of these flowers instead of some more amigurumi, I guess it's because I don't have to sew the parts up! :P


These patterns are from a book called "201 crochet motifs, blocks, projects and ideas" by "Melody Griffiths". I think the book is pretty good, the flowers, motifs and projects are beautiful. If you like to crochet flowers, you may consider to get this book.

Dreadful Wednesday

I always feel terrible in the middle of the week, especially today it's gray and rainy outside. Yes, I don't like rain very often, there is always a lonesome feelings to go with it.

With a day like this, I will choose to crochet something or anything to make the day pass by even faster than normal days, like Monday! LOL

To crochet a motif, it won't take long, 15-20 minutes you will have one beautiful flower! I haven't decided how to use these, may be on a hat, or may be just like a decor or bookmark. Anyway I am happy to see crochet flowers anywhere in my house.

Have you seen this side of Potter?

I am a big Harry Potter fans! The first 2 books I read are written in Chinese. Then the 3rd book of Harry Potter I went ahead and read English version, I found that reading the English version is so much better. However, I have a hard time to understand all these English terms and names, so I went back to read the very first book "Soccer Stone" so that I can understand and related all these names. It's a lot better after that. Yes, I am totally addicted!! I can't wait for the movie "the half blood prince" to come out.


Recently I have a customer came to me and get this hand-painted pearl forest green eyes. Then one day she showed me this lovely Beary Potter! I am so amazed and instantly totally in love the bear! Beary Potter is made with love, you can tell, it amazing and stunning!! If you are Harry Potter's fans, you will like this "Beary Potter". This Beary Potter is made by Dawn. You can visit her shop DawnMilstrey.etsy.com

Reclaim2fame.etsy.com

I have gone through so many etsy stores everyday, there are so many stores I am so impressed with the works and thought behind the store front. Today I went to this store, and the objects that Will created are adorable, they are truly one-of-a-kind creations! All the objects from this store are using at least 80% recycled materials. Unbelievable!! Have a look at his store and you will understand!!

Miss Lady Kitty

I looked at my last post, it has been 2 weeks and I didn't have any new blog post! What's wrong with me? have been swamped of calculating taxes, preparing all the papers, cleaning up the house and stocks! Oh My God, after doing all that, I am totally exhausted. I am not really good at maths, so I am going back to do what I am good at... crocheting! :P After sending my taxes, I am totally relief, so I decided to enjoy myself a little bit to start making amigurumi again! Here I am having this new gray cat, pattern is from AmyGaines again! My daughter is totally in love with these bunch of animals. You can see I have used 2 different colors of eyes, the pattern called for 9mm cat eyes, but I have my 12mm eyes closer to me when I was trying to do this, so I used 12 mm pearl blue eye and 12 mm pearl yellow eye instead. What do you think? I also used a 13 mm heart shaped nose. I think they fit quite well! =) Since I have seen a real cat with 2 different eye colors, I am totally in love with that and every single cat I have made I want to put different colors of eyes to reflect what I have seen! :P
