Random - From Macarons To Embroidery

Hello...Hello...Yes, it's me, hope I'm not forgotten :). I have not been blogging much lately as my day job is keeping me busy, sapping away all my energy. Sad to say I also have not got much time to craft either. Hope things will settle down soon at work so that I can find some time (& my mojo) to craft again.

Oh, I finally managed to try some macarons lately. I have always enjoyed looking at macarons as they are so colourful & pretty. But sad to say I didn't really like eating them as I found them a tad too sweet for my liking. Also didn't like the biscuit-y texture. So, I guess I shall continue to admire them from afar instead. :)

I know I'm getting quite random in this post but anyway, I found an embroidery book that's really cute & thought I'd share it here as well.

"365-Design Collection For Kids":

So, do you like it? It's cute, isn't it? If you are interested, the book's ISBN No. is 978-4529042048.

I tried doing embroidery once. Yes, just once. I embroidered a sweet corn on a handsewn bag. I remember it took me sooo long (weeks!) just to embroider the little corn that I never tried embroidery thereafter again. I think I am a lazy crafter as I prefer to sew/make things quickly. But after looking at the above embroidery book, my fingers are itching to try embroidery again. If only I have some time to craft...


Well, that's all from me for now. Hope you all have a good week ahead! :D


  1. ohmigoodness! alcy - you have that embroidery book!! (emphasises "THAT").
    I am so obssessed with that particular book. I usually go through Flickr photos to find snippets of it. It is such a lovely book!

    And I love the sweet corn embroidery. It is very pretty and detailed. I would not have the patience to finish it! Go you! :D

    And you had macaroons as well! *gasps* I have a sweet tooth, do you think I'll like it? :)

    I understand what you mean about the dayjob sapping sapping away energy. Although I do not hold a job, university can be quite taxing at times. And some days, I feel like doing nothing but curling up on the bed and watching TV with a cup of hot Milo.
    I hope you find some breathing time soon :)

    Have a woonderful Sunday Alcy!

  2. Hi, Lyn
    ^-^ I'm still smiling from looking through that embroidery book. It's real kawaii. I know my terrible photos didn't do it justice. Must really go brush up on my photo-taking skills. :)

    Oh, I bet you'll love those macarons since you have a sweet tooth. Trust me, they are really sweet. Haha...

    Btw, you know, that's precisely what I am doing right now - curling up in bed with a cup of coffee (it's raining outside). *bliss* :D

  3. Like THE book !! Have a great week , take care .
