American Idols Results Show

Today saw the exit of Matt Giraud. The competition was stiff . What do you expect. The last five - all of them sooooo talented. Well FOUR more to go!

Blue Bag

This is the smaller blue bag I finished crocheting last night. I worked on it most nights after coming back from work. As usual I changed colours to suit my mood. Fed up with one shade I would dig in my paperbag of yarn for another shade of blue. I almost put in a light purple too but backed out.

Anyway one side of the bag has a ribbon flower. It doesn't look pretty cos the ribbon was being blown about by the fan. On the other side you can see a blue button - I didn't have any magnetic clasp. Teacher Mel only gave us one set. But I must say I am happy with the blue button. Mel the button was from you - your generous contribution during the NNC Anniversary meet this year.

Crochet Bag

The bag that I crocheted under the tutelage of Mel. Thanks Mel I enjoyed crocheting this bag. Three of us -Nik, Paul and Myself - started on this last Saturday 18 April'09 at our stitching bee organised by Nik of our NNC Group. Mel provided us with the pattern to the bag and the magnetic clasps. However I must say by the time I finished the bag, my body, hands and especially my fingers hurt like hell.I took a week to complete the bag.

If you notice the beads hanging on the 3 strands of yarn - well that is the mark of the last stitch. Instead of weaving them inside the bag after tying off, I hung beads instead and just let them hang as is. The red flower is a ribbon brooch from the Kedai Bunga - the shop that sells all those ribbon flowers, etc for craft decor.

NNC Card Exchange 2009

I don't know whether it was time to post the card to our partner but I thought I saw 15 April as the mailing date. I panicked and sent mine off to Radha the weekend before 15 April'09 and I believe when she said that she ahd received it, the card must have reached her yesterday. So here it is the card that made it's way to Alor Star, Kedah in the NNC Card Exchange.I stitched the design that says"Hi" to meet the criteria of a stitched card. I did try punching holes on a piece of card and drew stitches to make faux stitches but it didn't turn out the way I wanted it to. So I threw it away. How I wish I owned a sewing machine. The embellishments was bought from the 'Kedai Bunga' in Nilai.The patterned paper was a freebie design from a card blogging site.Yeah I looked through so many blogs till I've forgotten from which blog site I got the freebie from.

Well Radha this is for you. AND not forgetting the Organiser of this exchange. - a big THANK YOU to YING
