I remembered going to plenty of indoor playgrounds with my cousins as a kid. Being one of the oldest among my cousins, I am often seen protecting them from other rowdy kids and teaching them all kinds of mischief. What fond memories I have of these adventures.
As the year draws to a close, I spent some time in reflecting and appreciating my year. So much has happened in 2016 amid a very fast paced year, I can finally slow down to catch my breath. I had a theme (or resolution) for 2016, which was Organize. I wanted to be more organized in my day-to day and stay abreast (or afloat) among all the things that are happening at once. Looking back, while I may not have achieve it at 100%, I give myself a rating of 8/10. More can be done (oh those finances), but I think I did pretty well for the year (if I say so myself).
I was a Knid Blyton kind of girl. I like the fairies and gnomes and getting lost in a world of make believe. I grew up loving to read, kudos to my mum who never fails to bring me to the library every 2 or odd weeks to refresh my books. I guess that stuck with me right till this day, I still enjoy a good book every now and then whenever I have time.
While clearing out my closet recently, I realised that I didn’t have many things I could wear to weddings. I have a few formal dresses which I usually wears them to work for formal meetings or on days when I am required to dress up more, and I certainly wasn’t keen to wear them for weddings.
Before Junior came along, I rarely paid any attention to the ingredients that goes into the products I used daily. The superficiality of things is that I often choose my products based on either how they look or how they smell.
There are plenty of sewing patterns for little girls out there, but what I found lacking was sewing patterns for boys. Granted that there are much lesser variations in terms of dressing for boys but I had really wanted to sew something beyond just little shorts for my bub. And that’s when I found Puperita.
The saying is true – time flies when you are having fun. This will be the last instalment of this 7 part mini-series which I hope have being interesting and a ball of fun to read. If you have missed out the first 6 instalments, catch them here: Allie J, Sew Dixie Lou, Randomly Happy, Madalynne, House of Pinheiro, Ada Spragg.
Last month when The Monthly Stitch held it’s annual Indie Patter Month challenge, I jumped on the opportunity to try a new pattern and also to have some fun. I have been quite conservative in using commercial and indie patterns and have preferred to draft my own for I was afraid of fitting issues. I supposed all I needed was some motivation to start my engine rolling. So, I decided to jump into the deep end to challenge myself this Indie Pattern Month.
As a child I really liked to read. I particularly enjoyed Knid Blyton’s books and the Babysitter club’s series. I would often spend hours after that making believe and even attempted (embarrassingly) to write my own novel by the name of Petsitter club as I grew slightly older.
I’ve received so much encouragement on this mini-series, so I really want you to know I appreciate all your kind words and love!
I’m back with the 5th instalment and today I have Rachel of House of Pinheiro.
