This below photo is how Fiori position when I said: Ready....Set......

She will lift her both arms to the back of her body like a pair of wings. It's her own idea and no body taught her to do that.

Something like this:

The problem is I don't have the yarn and I need to buy them. The idea of yarn shopping spree make me excited. However, before buying the yarn, I need to decide first whether I want a cotton blanket or wool blanket. I still can not decide until now. What do you think?

Free Pattern: Gift Bag Doily

Nowadays, not so many people like to make crocheted doily anymore and think that doily is passtime hobby for grandma. However, I used to like to make doilies and even now, once in the blue moon I got a urge to design one. I don't display my doily and I don't know what to do with them, until I come across this picture:

I think this is a good idea to personalize your gift bag. Here is the link to the free pattern.

It's my fault that she was crying.......

She was happy with her red ballon on her head, then suddenly her mother (read: ME) realized that the color of the baloon didn't match her yellow dress.

She was not happy when I changed the red baloon with the yellow one

She was trying to remove the yellow but couldn't.

The result: Waaaaa.......
