Transformation of an itsy-bitsy girl to a busy Beaver.


It's marvelous the way girls transforms themselves into a matured individuals once they grow up.

A girl when she is little is so dependent on her mother or father to accomplish a certain task. She is dependent on her mother to get her dressed or get her homework done. She is dependent on her father to take every important decision. She wants her mother around in case if she has been taken poorly.

A girl who often disavow responsibilities at her parents, change impecabally into a highly responsible individual who can manage her house hold diligently when she gets married.

Even if her house lacks sumptuousness and even if it's Spartan she learns to adapt to her new life.

She fags away into turning her home spic and span. She learns to do things meticulously and keeps everything in order.

She learns to cook her family's favorite meals. She tends to her family when needed. She learns to care for her children and help them when they need her.

She also learns to take the financial responsibilities when needed and last but not the least, she dreams of getting older with her partner and share each other's love, warmth and affection.

Painted mugs.

I just discovered this new hobby of painting mugs. I am enjoying this tremendously. I have used glass paint to paint these and they are quite easy and fun to paint.

I painted a few based on Beatrix Potter's illustrations, and a few are based on some office humor which I found on the internet.

I also knitted a doll based on an illustration I found on the internet. It says "when I asked for a quite place, I didn't have this in my mind". Unfortunately I have deleted that illustration and I couldn't find the picture. The island and the plan tree is knitted from Jeangreen Howe's book. The man is made out of felt.

I had fun with my new projects.

Until next...

What matters to a woman at the end of the day!


Woman multitask a lot of things. Most women have a day job along with all the house hold chores.
She is busy dusting and mopping the house, doing the laundry and ironing, busy with scrubbing the bathroom floor and keeping the house spic and span.
She is busy shopping the groceries for the house.
She has to take care of the kids, help them with their homework.
Apart from these, she also finds time to
Socialize, read, spend time on their hobbies, maintaining the expenses for the house, and also to get a facial.
 When the days are running this busy, and the wife is tired and at this time, when she gets a call from her husband asking her if she can prepare some nice and fancy dinner after he gets back home, the wife gets very much out of countenance but quite hesitant to deny his request starts cooking an exotic and delicious dinner.
However, all her frustration vanishes when she sees her husband very happy and enjoying the dinner cooked by her. The wife forgets all her tiredness and the efforts that went into cooking those elaborate meals.
So, at the end of the day all that matters to a woman is a warm and nice gesture from her husband. She can forget all her worries if she gets just this. At times, wife can actually screw up some dish or the dinner can be just a very simple one. It's not that her intention is to make her husband unhappy, it's just that she is too tired to make anything else. In these situations if the husband eats without showing any displeasure and appreciate her efforts, it's equal to a million dollars to the wife.
Even if the husband and wife are "dining dead", a kind and warm gesture from the husband is all that matters at the end of the day!

Until next,

Little Miss Muffet

I just finished designing Little Miss Muffet, based on an illustration from Mother goose nursery rhymes. I am very delighted with the outcome.

I designed this doll myself from my imagination, also I used this illustration as my guide. I used cardboard, lid from a plastic container, felt, lace etc to make this doll.

I also made a case for this doll out of a transparent plastic sheets. I think this will make a good display and also helps protect from dust.
I had a lot of fun making this doll. I am planning to Design more dolls based on Nursery rhymes.
Until next...

Another knitted dolly

I knitted another Jeangreen Howe's doll with a slight modification. I used size zero needles with double knitting yarn and it was a bad decision. I had to gain a lot of patience to finish this doll. I also made some changes with her hair. It took me a while, but I finally finished it!
I thought by using a pair of smaller needles, I could make a smaller doll. But, since I used double knitting yarn it didn't make much difference. Maybe, next time if I want to make a smaller doll I will use one skein yarn.
We learn from our mistakes :)
