summer vacation

well, we're suppose to be on vacation but we ain't going anywhere. somebody couldn't tear himself away from his work it seems. we could already be in Bali by now, or Bintan.

at any rate, we did go to the beach this morning but since we weren't near any bike rental place we ended going to the pool. now the DH looks like a lobster. :P

tomorrow we'll be better prepared. sunblock. clean undies. food. he did promise to take me to the pool again tomorrow, and we'd try to get near a bike rental shop.

yesterday i made this.

Big Eyed Bambi

i got the idea from this charm that i see on some sites.

and i was itching to get one and since i don't see it here, i decided that i can needle one into shape. the toughest thing is to make the legs. my fingers are suffering from multiple puncture wounds now. i really should get me some thick finger gloves.

today i made a giraffe. i was planning to make something big and fat and cute but this one turned up almost anatomically correct. the legs are of course short and stumpy. i started at about 5 pm, made dinner at 7pm. by the time it was 10 and the blue planet was showing i was putting in the spots. heheh. not bad for today.

mao mao helps to model.

i really like this 'eye' effect. it's weird but somehow it makes the eye sparkle. and since i do not have black, all my animals are gonna be brown and doe eyed.

i'm not sure what to do with them now. the giraffe was suppose to be for me new bag. i might turn the deer into a charm, maybe for handphone, or a pendant.

i'm done bragging now. i wonder what i can acheive tomorrow.
