a gift that kuya received from his favorite tito.
along with 2 other shirts with fantastic four prints.
every time i tidy up kuya's closet i'd stare at this shirt.
been toying with the idea of making it into a dress for ate.
but i'm having second thoughts coz the print is not girly.
anyhoo, i still went on...
as always, my model is always happy for "mama made". :D
i think this is my first time to make a dress for her with sleeves.
glad it turned out fine even if the neckline became a suuuper scoop neck for her.

I reached the village early.
The day was gloomy.
I took my time and slowed down.
I stopped and took this shot.
What a nice view!
That body of water is a large lake - Laguna Lake.
The largest lake in this side of the world.
While the car was moving, I took a shot of this model house.
Hop on over Susan's Southern Daydreamer site.

my first swap.
i was giddy and excited.
but it never came.
i figured... it was christmas season,
must have been lost in limbo
and landed onto somebody else's lap!
but ain't my partner the sweetest?
she sent a replacement!
it's not her fault,
but she wouldn't take NO for an answer.
she wrote... "I hope the recipients get it soon (one of these is a replacement and it had better get there this time!)"
well, i think the courier heard her, got scared, and delivered this to me...
i can't believe that i actually have something from Simplicity. i frequent this site for free tutes and sewing techniques. and now, i have in my hands, one of their products because of her generosity. AND... can you see that pink fabric?
it's actually this...
it's a quilted tote bag in pink+brown on one side and orange+yellow on the other side. so it's like you have 2 bags in 1. she made it in my favorite color combinations. my husband saw me taking a picture of the pink+brown side - "nice"! then he went out. when he came back, he saw me taking a picture of the orange+yellow side. - "huh?! 2 bags?". me? i'm just so happy that i have a pink quilted bag from my partner! because i still can't figure out how to make a quilt. yes, i cant. maybe i will, one day.

before anything else, can i just say that i "frosted" this sliding french door, for a little less than php20.00? been meaning to have it frosted when i started accumulating "junks" inside the room. i wanted to hide the things inside from everyone who comes in. it's the first room that visitors would see and what an impression that would be! sometimes everything inside is spic and span but with just a snap of a finger, everything returns to its normal state - chaos! (is that normal for someone who crafts?) one time, i tacked a cloth there so nobody would be able to see what's inside. but i got tired of it and got rid of the "curtain". sometimes, i keep the window blinds closed so it would be dark inside and the mess would be hidden. but closing it makes the foyer gloomy. in my mind, the best solution is to frost the glass to keep the room "mysterious" without darkening the room. however, every time i go out, buying frosted film sheet always slips my mind.
... my second favorite place.
- ... this serves as an extension of my crafting mess!
- ... more than the living room, this is where you can find us for the most part of the day. not because we are always eating but because this seem to be more airy and cheerful, aside from it being the center part of the house
- ... this is where we sit to watch TV
- ... a door leads to the lanai where i have a pocket garden, and
- ... i love sewing covers for those dining chairs!
sometimes, when it is raining cats and dogs, you'll find my 2 boys there, taking a shower under the rain while playing catch, tag or water gun. they always have a blast everytime. this is also where we relax a bit after dinner, before going to bed... our little place of heaven under the sun (and moon :).
