Fiori is always curious when she sees other peoples drinking or eating. She wants to taste as well. Like this occasion when she saw her sister drinking from a straw. She started to make some noise and pulling whoever was near her. So, I gave her Vitagen to try. Guess what? She likes it. Once she sucked the straw and got the liquid she could not stop sucking. When I tried to take it back, she didn’t want to let it go.
Wahhh.. This is so niceeeee
Still have plenty
Papa! I've finished it already…
And as usual, when Lauri saw me taking picture, she also wanted to pose.
I think this was the line that she wanted to say, although she only managed to say “Alooo”. Nobody taught her to use the phone, but when the phone was presented to her, she immediately picked up the phone and tried to dial the number.
Last week I decided to machine wash my quilt. Normally I dry clean it because when I make this quilt, I didn’t prewash the material, so I really didn’t know whether the material would shrink or the color would bleed. To be in the save side, I just dry cleaned it. However, since I rarely go out, I really didn’t have opportunity to bring the quilt to be dry cleaned (and when I finally had opportunity to go out, I forgot to bring it with me).
In the end, I just dropped it in the washing machine and hoping for the best. Thank God, everything was just fine. It looked as nice as can be and it smelled good.
I use cold water and I just let it dried under the fan. While drying, I just notice the date I embroidered on the backing. It was the date I finished this quilt, 28 September 2004. It was a mooncake festival night and it was 5 days before Lauri born.
I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 4 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing my own patterns, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year. My patterns can be found on my blog
and through Etsy and on Ravelry.
