big flying cockroach

the cat was stalking something in the toilet and it was a huge cockroach. it was not flying. *phfew* so i attacked it with a baygone spray. the spray was... shall i say very effective. as i watch the big brown thing flop over and twitch its crunchy legs i felt bad. really bad. normally i have to spray insecticide at them flying things while they escape and take a really long time to expire and usually i just pick up the weak but not yet dead creature and flush them down the loo. but tonight, the concentrated spray (through a long nozzle) really killed that bug. and it just died. it's really horrible to see something expire. :(

my mum's plant flowered and they are the cutest things. i couldn't stop looking or touching them. so velvety. and they smell sorta stinky and sweet at the same time. i can fit this whole bunch into my palm. and i gots small hands.

today has been a very productive day. i made cookies and tart shells and pieced the entire collection of fuzzy charms.

the whip cream will take another day or so to dry completely before i can varnish them and glue into place. right now i've got a couple of completed ones and the rest assembed but not glued/varnished. i'm so pleased with these.

tomorrow i'll have to finish up my birdie collection. and hopefully make a few more before my arm and shoulder stiffen up.

and the reason why my photoes look so fuzzy is because i've been taking them with my phone, which boasts a 8 or 10 MB resolution but since my hands seem to be trembly lately so... and i still think no matter what an actual camera will always do better than a hp.

unbeing a hermit

let me show you what have me occupying my time since july.

i managed to finish it when he was in korea just before christmas. wah lao eh. i literally didn't do anything much. and when i did, i didn't have time to upload them.

i do recall making a bunch of fuzzy cakes and donuts.....

anyways, the sweater ended up being a leetle too big for the DH. this means lots of unravelling and restructuring. oh me goodness *faints* i'm very tempted to put it in hot water to shrink it.

i made the DH do my xmas shopping for me whilst in korea. *shows off the haul*

all these just for meeeee... once again he gets off not having to buy me any pressies, on his own i mean.

and these are the various feebies and samples that he got from the shops. cat not included.

wah... fwee eyelash curler.. i have not opened it yet even. so many things to try but not enough time to use.
i had a fun time wrapping up presents last year. 2008 i mean. which isn't such a long time ago. i'm looking forward to another christmas, but gift buying is getting more and more difficult.

this is the only thing i made as presents this time. but since then i have made a few more for the shop.
