Keroppi Alarm Clock

Hmm...The alarm on my little clock has decided to take a break and does not sound anymore these days. So now I had to rely on my handphone alarm to wake me up in the morning. This is the second alarm clock I broke.

But nothing's wasted, when the first one went dead, I removed the hour & minute hands and sewed this felt alarm clock with a Keroppi face on it!

How I wish this Keroppi alarm clock would actually work...

Keroppi is my favourite Sanrio character, though I like Minna No Tabo & Hello Kitty too. Do you have a favourite Sanrio character?

Hedgehog Blues

Sewed this blue hedgie a while back which I've not shown you. Guess this shall be the last hedgie I'm making, for the time-being that is :).

Which do you prefer? The yellow, pink or this blue one?

I love hedgehogs (did I mention that before?), so I took a group photo of the 3 hedgies I made & use it as the header for my blog. Looks like they are not leaving my blog anytime yet... :D

Bye for now and Happy Sunday to you!

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival

It's the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar (八月十五) and today, we celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節), also known as the Lantern Festival or Mooncake Festival.

Besides admiring the mid-autumn harvest moon...

Oops, sorry folks, my picture of the full moon didn't turn out too well...
...eating pomelos...

What is Mooncake Festival without...mooncakes!

What kind of mooncakes do you like? The baked or snow-skin ones? I prefer the baked ones (without salted egg yolk please) :D...

As you may have noticed, sometimes I like to make a felt version of the food I eat. So to celebrate this special day, I sewed this felt mooncake specially for YOU. Hope you like it.

Well, looks like we've got everything ready - the moon, the pomelos & the mooncakes. Now, why don't you grab your favourite cup of tea or coffee & join me to celebrate this 中秋節?
