sewing debut.

So I picked up my mom’s sewing machine…again. But this time I finally made something. I made a scarf!!!!! I’ve been wanting to this for so long!! I’ve been planning everything in head for months now. Mind you I’ve no sewing tools whatsoever. I only used a pair of kitchen scissors. I don’t even know how to use a sewing machine. I was so excited that I decided to make it today. Of all the days, the day before thanksgiving when the house should be clean and the kitchen is full. I’m like a lunatic doing this project in the kitchen while waiting for the leche flan. But I’m so happy. This is probably the easiest scarf to make. I used mom’s throw (yeah I know she’s gonna kill me!!!). But I love the color and it’s wool.
Basically, I cut the throw in half and believe it or not I measured it after I cut it and it’s freaking crazy, it measured exactly 30’ x 60’! I promise!
Then I did the sides and turned it inside out. Note to self: ironing fabric might help, kitchen scissors was dumb idea definitely need rotary cutter.
Connect the ends and sew.
Last step might be a bit complicated. but trust me if i was able you do it, anyone can. it's probably not complicated then. can't wait to take pix.

happy 1st birthday, logan.

craftroom nightmare.

1. I had 4 rolls of clear tape and all of them were at the last end and I had to wrap a huge box. Good thing I had 4. Haha.
2. My scissors' missing. Finished a greeting card using sophie's dora scissors. My fingers are too damn big.
3. The paper organizer is a diaper box but the most effective.
4. My table is wobbly. So annoying.
5. One of my button jar has a needle in it. Ouch.

i'm so mad at myself for being so lazy to go to the park with sophie. and now it's freezing. i gotta say fall is almost my favorite season. it's so new york. i want to take pix so badly before all the leaves are gone. it's amazing how easy it is to forget how summer feels at least for me. but i love wearing boots and scarves. and wearing pjs and big sweaters. sock skating, yeah i gotta teach sophie to wear socks.

ayazine breaking news.

1. i am 29 years old. i still remember when i wished to be 30 already. and here i am in the future! that makes me a time traveler because we are all traveling through time. if you really really really think about it. happy birthday to me. thanks ma.
2. if the world ends and everything is wiped out whether by water or earth. new living creatures will evolve into something human level - that's of course after billions or years maybe trillions of years. and then they will discover something mysterious and amazing (like how we discovered the pyramids, stone henge) from our time and they will think that we had help from the aliens too.
3. so i wrote an email to genevieve gorder about a "standing crib" - basically a narrow crib-like designed for toddler to stand on esp when you have a very "helpful" toddler who love baking and cooking with mommy. if it exist, we want one.
4. sophie's frist trick or treating was a success!
5. i discovered that i have excellent skills in negotiating. like as in buying a new car. i faced 3 sharks at the dealership and succeeded! i miss being on the the other side. i miss rm.
6. i have great memory. i remember things from even when i was 2 years old. of course no one believes me. my ate doesn't have my back on that one.
7. my ate has my back on everything else.
8. i am ready for another chapter (more like a volume) in my life. i am ready to be a new mom again.
9. good thing: i don't care much about what other people think of me. bad thing: i care so much what the people i love think of me.
10. i need to visit a gift shop soon.
11. birthday goodies: boots from hubby, rc for my nikon from ate, fringe bag from rb, night out in the city on holoween, limo ride, new ride, sophie singing happy birthday mama.
good report to be continued...
