Mr Mushroom Head

His name given by his creator (author of the pattern) is Toadstool Paul, but I like to call him Mr Mushroom Head.

Isn’t he charming :)

He is still available, and looking for a home. Anyone?

Mr Mushroom Head measures about 33cm tall, and he is made of 100% acrylic yarn.

another vlad…

Vampires seems to be the trend. I enjoy making this one. It was a quick project. This one, no modification, followed exactly as per pattern.

Size approximately 38-39cm tall, using 100% 8ply acrylic yarn, but this yarn is silky soft acrylic, hence the texture is finer, thus doll turn out smaller than my purple vlad before. This time, I use 3.5mm hook; so understandably it will turn out smaller.

purple vlad

I’m so loving this Vlad the Vampire.

He is made of 100% acrylic yarn, using hook size 4.0. It was a pleasant surprise when he turned out larger than indicated in the pattern.

I added a little extra to the pattern by crocheting a belt around his waist.

I made Vlad while I was visiting my sister in Sabah, as the customer who wanted him lived in Sabah. So it would be easier to handover to my customer.

Another custom made doll.

Kira the Kanga in purple-yellow.

Pattern by lalylala, crochet by yours truly (me!!!!).

I’m loving the pastel mixed color. Although some may say it’s not that appealing. But it is indeed pretty.

Made with 100% acrylic yarn, 8 ply.

Kira is such a loving Mama.

Hello!

Hello friends, i’m starting to blog here again.

Life have been pretty crazy these past 2 years, with all the hoo hahs that has been happening around me. But it’s okay, I take it in with a stride and that makes me into a stronger person.

I’ve been crazy about amigurumi since a few months back. Here’s one that I’m working on this week. 2016-05-09_20.21.23

 

I’ll be back very soon for more updates! :-)

Sunday lunch

I’ve been craving for Korean BBQ for the longest time.

Where I live, there are a few well known Korean BBQ restaurants which are good. Oneof them is this shop called Korean House in SS2. That’s where we went.

I love the kimchi soup there, not too spicy, and enough sourness in it.

I particularly look forward to their side dishes (banchan, ??).

Korean restaurants are so generous with banchan, they keep refilling them for free. It’s a culture thing. Love the kimchi, and the lotus roots especially. And so colourful.

And they always serve either some pancake or steam egg dish,  and they will say it’s their complimentary dish. We got the steam egg this round.

This dish – kimchi rice cake, is a must try. Expensive dish RM30 for a plate with no meat (just fish cakes), but it’s something different. I usually don’t order this but decided to have it this round. Super delicious as I was super hungry, but my personal preference would be to have it slightly more spicy!

Here are the bbq dishes.

and pork.

By far this is one of the Korean restaurant I know that serves bbq duck. This one that came was overcooked! It would have been fantastic if it was done medium rare.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed my meal so much and we even had some leftovers for my friend’s dog Jacky!

My candlelight sushi dinner- No electricity!

Last Sunday, around 2pm our electric fuse tripped. We did a plug point check to eliminate the problem area, but the fuse kept tripping. Probably due to too many trips, the spring in the fuse spoilt; hence no electricity. No wiremen was available on Sunday, so we had to spend the rest of our Sunday without electricity (which meant no wifi, unable to charge our tablets/laptops/handphones, no air conditioning, no hot water).

Being in this era, and very pampered and dependent on modern technology; having no electricity was a torture to me. I felt so bored with nothing to do and uncomfortable – I cannot sew as my sewing machine require electricity, I cannot crochet as it was too dark under candlelight, it was too warm I felt so uncomfortable, mosquitoes everywhere because there was no air conditioning and we had to open the windows… the whole evening and night was just disasterous! I did not sleep well, in fact I don’t think I slept! Everyone else at home didn’t sleep well too, and poor Scout was panting the whole night long.

Anyway, here’s something which was the only satisfying thing for me that day…
My candlelight dinner.

The next day, we had to “borrow electricity” from our neighbour to charge our handphones!!! The wireman could not come until 3pm but thank goodness everything was solved by the time I return from work :). Thank you God for electricity.

T’shirt yarn

This I made.

To crochet a sleeping mat.

For my lovely Lab.

I got some help though, using these tutorials here and and here. Thank yous!!

T’shirts are from Big Aeon, RM7 each. Bought the largest size I could find XL and XXL.

I wanted to use recycled t’shirts but the color wasn’t right, the material wasn’t right (not the jersey type), and they are mostly not plain and with seams on the side.

Each skein is 1 t’shirt.

Can’t wait to start the rug… or mat…
