Customized Cape for Princess Chloe

Time flies... Baby Princess Chloe has outgrown all her Knotty Fashion Collection & is now back for more! ;) Mummy Verlin has customized this sweet cape for Princess Chloe, who is almost two now :) I'm sure it will keep Chloe warm & comfy when Mummy brings her shopping at air-conditioned places... :)

"I've just received the cape from the postman.  Wow, it looks even prettier in real.  I love it." - Verlin, 1st June 2010, sent via email.

Customized Bag for Ee Ling

This bag is inspired by the now-very-popular Longchamp Bags. I use a velvety yarn specially made for bags. Due to the size (approximately 46x30cm), I chose to crochet it with a smaller hook, so I do not have to sew a lining. Hence, took me a lot more time to make it, & also used up a lot more yarns :P It sure is worth the effort as the effect is BEAUTIFUL, don't u think? ;)

"Ee Ling, thank u so much for your patience & understanding, waiting for almost 4weeks for your order :) Sure hope u'll have a wonderful trip with your new bag! ;)"

My 1st Carnation

I received my 1st carnation bouquet last Saturday! :P As always, my loving hubby surprised me with a nice cosy lunch date @New York New York, Sembawang Shopping Centre, with a nice little bouquet of carnation! It's real sweet of him & I truly appreciate him alot :)

Initially, I thought the lunch & bouquet was to "compensate" for crashing my Mac while he was trying to update some software (yes, my Mac is still recuperating. Thank goodness my genius hubby is able to retrieve bulk of my stuff, otherwise... he's probably already a DEAD MAN! :P *evil smile*). Then when I read the card, I realized it's for "Mother's Day"! haha... It was funny...

My 1st carnation... marks a new chapter of my life. Mixed feelings, although more excitement & thrill than worry. I know I'll do my best, so I hope I'll be able to cope & be a good mother for bb Edda. Well, at least some things for sure, I know my parents & parents-in-law will definitely be there to help. Most of all, I know Edward will always be a loving & supportive husband, & I know he's gonna be a wonderful father, a SUPER-DAD! ;)
Here's wishing all Mothers in the world once again a happy & fulfilling motherhood! :)

"Eat with Family" - a group Art Exhibition

It's been my personal goal to be involved in at least 1 exhibition every year. The biggest gotta be my 1st solo show "Mee Suah" in 2008. Well, this year with bb Edda on the way, I thought would not be able to come up with anything :( Fortunately & quite timely enough, I was approached by Kelvin, 1 of the curators of this exhibition, to be part of this show. Of course I agreed to participate almost immediately! ;)

I'm showcasing a family portrait in my knitted art style. 48x36inches, my biggest piece of knitted art so far ;) Yes, VERY AMBITIOUS indeed... :P Nevertheless, it's been fun working on it... I believe bb Edda enjoys the process too, since she's ALWAYS kicking while I'm painting! ;P Kelvin, thanx for the opportunity !

I'll be at the opening on 17th May 2010 (Mon). Sure hope to see some fo u there too! ;)
