Its been a while.. I will always be in and out this blog post all the time.

To stay constantly blogging has been all the time my wishes. Yes wishes but not hope. Wishes may not come true, whereas hope has a higher chance to be true.

Whether blogging or not, my passion on crocheting has never stop.

I have been continuously working on crochet products concurrently with my busy work life. I have been living my life fullest: eating healthily (cook myself most of the weekends), cycling to keep healthy life style, building my relationship with people, working hard to prepare for my retirement, feeling lucky all the time and keeping my stress level low (at least I tried!). Every week I work 5 days to earn for my two days of pleasure over the weekends, doing all the things I like to do. Crocheting is one of my best hobbies. It helps to reduce my stress from everyday life.

As you keep repeating the same thing week after week till you get pretty bored, there comes the hiccup that tries to kick you out of the habit. You retarded and stop following your good habits and you may even went astray and pickup some bad habits like eat unhealthily, lazy on workout, spending time playing mobile hp games… etc. Then it comes to a point that you awake suddenly and want to go back to your good habit again. But the restart button usually takes some time to trigger.

There I am now trying to go back to my old time good habit to constantly writing blog to update my crochet journey.  I am trying to concentrating on working on niche of my crochet product. Some unique features that I can find out from my products to discover a new product line. I hope to create my own crochet products and live my life working on them! Wish me good luck!

Below is a crocheted handbag newly completed over the week end. Only collected yarn from SGshop on Saturday and finishing less than a day!

I just completed my second snowmain crochet doll in two evening time. Felt so proud of myself.

I was kind of working stress lately and miss my first snowman so much. I did my first snowman stress relief doll last November and sold it within a day after I display at the etsy site. I wonder how is he now , did the new owner like him?

Anyway, I decided to make myself another one to compensate my ‘lost’. I need it badly to release some of my stress. While crocheting, I have already felt the relaxation that I needed. And I found another good reason to do crocheting. No matter how tired I felt after my day job, I should remind myself the best way to replenish my energy at the end of the day is to do some crocheting. Pick up a crochet hook and some yarn you can find. Without thinking much, just do what came first in your mind and you surprise yourself what you can make out of it.

This second snowmain, Mr purple, is quite similar to his brother Mr Green. I change the hat slightly started with making the rounded ball at the tip of the hat and expand using single crochet in white yarn. I used double crochet and half double crochet for the last four rows to increase its elasticity. It really look like a real hat to me. As for the scarf, I started with the rounded ball in white and continue on using double crochet with althernate color row between purple and white.  I ended with a simple sc ball using purple color yarn. Both balls were also stuffed with poly fiber.

I’m going to place it at my office desk. Seeing him everyday during work would some how ease off my daily stress, I hope.

I have gone through lately a ‘heart breaking’ phase: to part from my cute crochet dolls!

Good things were supposed to be shared with those you loved. I have given away 4 dolls so far and my families and friends loved my crocheted dolls (thanks for their appreciations) so much that they have further requests.

Since the last blog updates, I have made 8 more dolls: One rabbit, one dinosaur, one hello kitty, one doraemon, 2 amigurami cats, 1 small panda and 1 snowman.

I guess I have to get used to this ‘heart breaking’ phase to part from my dolls as all these dolls were be leaving me soon.

I have to stop making them for a while to recover from my ‘lost’. Here is is another special order for a doraemon from my mother’s friend for her daughter. I’ll be selling it at $20 US dollar. Any taker? 😛
