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...

New home for my Sock doll.

One of my sock dolls found a new home. One of my coworkers wanted to give this doll to her daughter. I feel splendid to see the little girls playing with my dolls. I am very, very glad to share these pictures on my blog.

What a happy kid!

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 :)

Sock dolls

I finished a couple of sock dolls and they are very cute. I am hooked to these and they are so easy and fast to sew.

I am going to make a few more of these ;)
Until next...

Handmade Notebook

Recently I was reading Reader's digest 'Laughter is the best medicine'. I read a joke which was so funny and inspired me to make this project. The joke goes like this:
As per the joke, I drew two little girls. I learnt to illustrate these cartoon nerdy girls from Wikipedia.
After I illustrated these girls I decided to make this a cover for a book. I added some ruled sheets inside the book. I also added some decorative lenin sheets for the inside and the outside and for the border of the book. I wrote the joke on the cover with a permanent marker and I laminated the cover using a plastic wrap.

I am quite happy with the outcome! I am going to gift this to one of my friends daughter. It will be wonderful to record all kinds of memories of her school daze!
