Random photos

Here are some random photos taken with my camera phone/phone with camera.

Spotted a poor Garfield hanged on a big truck looking so bashed up. Can someone please report it to the SPCA, the cat was last seen on Glenmarie, Shah Alam.

Well, to think that our life is so messed up and then looking at this cat, i think we should be thankful we are not him/her.

Spotted outside of SS15, MacDonald: A rabbit grazing on the small patches of grass. Is this cute rabbit a runaway or he lives in the neighbourhood. Let's hope it didn't turn up on someone's dinner plate.

Owlies fever

Introducing my owlies, three different version of owls

1) Crocheted Geeky looking owl (pattern from a crochet doll book)

2) Fabric (my design after being inspired by tonnes of owl plushies available online)

3) Sock owlie (an experimental owl which originated from a sock cat design originated from a sock plushie book)

and I am still undecided to send which owl for my swap partner, Claire. Well, I guess I will just make more owlies!!!

Owlies Hours

I've been missing in blogging for quite sometime. I've been crafting and collecting stash of fabrics from Ikea and Daisho for the past few days. But the most fun I had was searching for ideas for my Ogling Owlies II swap partner and making some prototaips. I am undecided which one to give to her. Maybe I should make a few more and keep them for a giveaway or sell them at craft show.

But anyways, there's alot of craftiness on owlies. Check them out at :

You gotta love Kwoozy's Owl Project, even it's has ended ages ago.

Last Christmas

I've been wondering when can I post my lovely handmade for Christmas. As the holidays passes by and slowly I became a lazy bump but I would love to share them, so I finally manage to find the memory card and the card reader to extract my pictures.

Well, before I sent my Kodama to my swap partner in the States, it was happily taking photos with some of the Xmas dolls that I've made. An experimental Santa and a few snowmans make a jolly Xmas. If anyone interested in adopting the crochet santa, i will be happy to give away.

Santa wouldn't be happy without Rudolph and Christmas tree! So I added 2 rudolph instead of just a plain o' one.

There's a lot of ideas of Xmas handmade posted by those wonderful crafty people has led me to my new christmas tree creation. In this felt tree, I finally started using ribbons and buttons, which usually quite hesitant to add them as it could be disaster if it doesn't match the handmade.

I added a snowflake embroidery with gold thread and a greeting " Merry Christmas" at the back of the tree.

But my favourite Christmas theme handmade would be the customized crochet snowman and gingerbread man for my friends. The requirement for the gingerbread man as follow: "custom made gingerbread man with half of his head eaten and also his leg" by Karu!

Let's have a look at the baking of gingerbread man:

With a bit of twisted mind, I almost added another droplet of blood at the broken leg.

Finally, it's well baked and ready to go! A special custom made gingerbread man.

And lastly, my first attempt on crocheting a snowman and it's a much larger size amigurumi I've ever made. As usual, my favourite tophat was added to spice up the gentleman look of the snowman and a blue polkadot felt scarf.
