Re-post from my Tumblr Blog : First time that I heard about yarn bombing is when I read my favorite crochet blog called "One Sheepish Girl" by Meredith.  I was so curious when I first heard about this term. Therefore, I did a little digging at Meredith's blog to find out more about yarn bombing. Yarn bombing is when you create something from yarn and attach or display it at public places.  It is such a fun and exciting activity. It is not surprising that there is actually a Yarn Bombing Day which is 29th of September. I actually did my first yarn bombing on the last Saturday which was yarn bombing day of this year. I decided to do yarn bombing this year after reading Meredith's blog post inviting her readers to do the yarn bombing and post the picture on instagram tagging #sheepishyarnbomb. The fun part was when I tried to come up with something creative to display at in public places. It took me a while to come up with some ideas. Then I saw my tutorial for croc...
Re-post from my Tumblr blog :  Thai red curry is a very common dish in Thai cuisine throughout the world. However, it is not very heathy in terms of the high cholesterol from the coconut milk which is one of the main ingredients. Therefore, I use coconut milk substitution for this recipe. Luckily, nowadays, there are several brands of  offer products made for substituting coconut milk. I also use chinese cabbage which is not normally found in traditional Thai red curry. Chinese cabbage goes very will with  the red curry sauce as it can absorb the creamy and tasty sauce. So,  every bite that you eat the chinese cabbage from this curry you will fully taste the spicy creamy sauce. Even my friend who does notlike vegetables very much loves this dish. Moreover, I use soft tofu in this recipe as well even though pork is the main meaty ingredients of this recipe. I just love tofu  so I can't help adding it to this recipe. Let's imagine the soft tofy texture together wi...

Re-post from my Tumblr-Blog:   Last month when I went shopping for yarns, I fell in love with all the pastel colors of mercerized cotton yarn that I found at the yarn shop in my neighborhood. It was very hard to stop myself from buying all they colors they have. I bought some colors that I thought go well together. One month later, I still have not started to do anything with my new yarn. Hm... One month later, I had a great opportunity to do a guest post at Kitty & Buck so I  thought it was a great opportunity to use my cute new yarn. Finally, I can play with my new yarn with a purpose.  I would like to create something cute and easy so it would be a fun post for Kitty & Buck's readers. After hours of trial and errors, butterflies earrings were created! If you would like to give it a try,  you can visit the post here for full instructions. Happy crafting! ...
Re-post from my Tumblr blog : This is the second crochet tutorial of my blog. I am still having fun with my colorful mercerized cotton yarn that I bought last month. After the butterflies earring project , I think I should create something that I can use around the house (so I can show off my creation to my guests..) . However, I have only 2 hours which is my son’s nap time.  This is what I came up with - a square crochet coaster with scallop corners. This time I still use the cantaloupe orange yarn similar to the one I used in Butterflies earrings project and I paired it with this cute lime green. I think I will call this combination a cantaloupe  combo. What do you think? Below is the tutorial for this scallop corner coaster.  This is a great project for beginners to practice all the basic stitches. Stitches used single crochet double crochet triple crochet Have fun crochet !!!! You will need Crochet hook 1.3 mm Mercerized Cotton yarn No.20 (2 colors:...

Re-post from my tumblr blog: At first, I thought it might be logical to find the gifts before finding the paper to wrap them. However, I usually forget to prepare ways to wrap or to present those gifts. It was stressful to run around the house or drive to the nearest store to find gift wrap papers. Then I usually ended up with the gifts wrapped in the paper that I didn't really like. Gift wrapping can be essential in spicing up the festive vibe of the party. Gift giving season is coming in the next few months so I think it is time to stock up some gift wrap paper.  It is a fantastic feeling when seeing someone getting excited just to unwrap the gift, don't you think? I will post more about the art of gift wrapping. Now I would like to start with something basic -- gift wrap paper. How about eco friendly paper?  I just recalled that I have blogged about a shop selling 100% post consumer recycled pattern paper for gift wrapping long time ago.  Take a look and you will love th...
