Scrambled (EGG?) ^_^

Thursday, June 25, 2009

What happened to me for the last two weeks is silly. It started when I preparing pictures for my new entry. Then I don't know what happened, I simply forgot them. After few days, I wanted to start blogging, I THINK I hadn't prepared the photos yet, so I planned to prepare the photos first, then blogging. Another days passed, another week passed, and I still hadn't prepared the pictures. But today, I open my flash disk, suddenly I realized the pictures are THERE this whole time LOL. (Gosh...can you spot all the grammar mistakes I make? past tense always drive me crazy! ^_^)

Back to business....I've finished my homework yeeei
Months ago I promised my cousin a bracelet with her name on it. After so many excuses, I finally able to make her one.
I make it in purple color, her favorite. Using the alphabet beads I bought in Singapore lasat month, I formed a word L E V I N A. I was a bit dissapointed with how its looked. As always I never feel confidence with what I made. But turn out that she loves it ..hhhmmm or she's just being polite? (see...I did it again ^_^)

I also make a, what suppose to be a bookmark from tatbit . Don't you love the classical looked of flower inside a frame? It should be 3 frames to form a bookmark. But I decided to separate them, just because I love the way it looked. Thank you for sharring the pattern Teri.

And finally...something happened : my schruncy snapped!
I wondering what should I do with this?

I Need to Share it

Friday, June 12, 2009

I'm in a great sadness. So sorry to share it to you, but I think I need to spill my mind and my feeling.

Remember my trip to Singapore 2 weeks ago? I was doing a procedure called IUI (Intra Uterine Insemination); some of you might familiar with this procedure. For those who don't know IUI, this is how it works :
I was taking medicine for several days to stimulate folicles in my ovarium, I also having some injections until I'm ovulate. After I'm ready; my husband has to produce his sperm, bring it to lab, and they will "washed" the sperm to get the best of it. After the sperm ready, those 'tadpoles' are injected to my uterus and then we just hope for the best.

It was quite a stressful experience; I have to see doctor everyday for about 10 days , I have to remember all the dose he gave me, I also have to face my fear with needle, and dealing with the 75% of failure. Everybody reminds me not to get so anxious and stress. But it's rather easier to speak, isn't it? So, I tried (hardly) to enjoy my 2 weeks in Singapore, pretended that I'm on holiday!

And yesterday, after 2 weeks of waiting for the result, I had to accept the fact that my first attemp of IUI is officially...FAILED! I had my period yesterday evening.

I'm the weak one, so I told my husband, and I just kept crying all night. I saw my husband so worried about me, he's afraid that I can't handle this. Though I know that he also quite sad, but he's so strong and keep calming me down, makes my mourning time lot easier.

That was last night, and I kinda make a deal to my self I can pity my self all night long ,but only for ONE night! Tomorrow is a new day. Well, I'll try my best. Today, I make decision for my next plan : I am taking a break, no pills, no injections, no med check, find some distraction, let go all the fears, have fun, and just keep believing in His path. Wish me luck !

Few weeks ago my husband asked me what is Hibernation? And I answered : That's what I'm going to do...Hibernate
2 weeks leave from office to plan on pregnancy in Singapore, gave me time to relax and to enjoy a forced holiday. And also a chance to tat more and to shop a lot ^_^

I can't wait to show my new toys I got from Singapore

The threads I bought at Daiso, Golden Dragon, and from Ellen Lai

Beads I bought at Art Friends at Takashimaya

And Some other stuff I bought at Golden Dragon in China Town

Golden dragon in China Town, is such a heaven for me LOL. Do you think I'm overreacted?'s quite a nice and complete store. Lot better than one I have in Bandung. It has more threads and shuttles and anything you need to get creative.

My main purpose in Singapore was to get my self a treatment in order to get pregnant. I spent quite some times at the airport, airplane, MRT, and doctor's waiting room. So...what's better than tatting to spend all the time I had? Since I don't remember many patterns, I have to make simple projects.

I love making hearts and I have plan to make more. Though my husband said that I should make them on several colors, but I think I'll use red, pink, and white colors only.

I just love this cross. It's easy to make and it looks lovely when we use the right color on it. Actually, this cross was my first love to tat ^_^

I also tried to imitate Jon's snowflake. I hope she doesn't mind. I instantly fall in love with this cute snowflake the moment she gave me one. And I started to count the stitches, and I managed to make the dark purple and sky blue snowflake. Not as pretty as Jon's, but I think that's enough for now.

And my last project was tatted scrunchy (do I spell it correctly?!@) And as you know, it takes a long long time to finish, so long so that I can't do any more project and until last night when it got pictured, still on progress ^_^

Many thanks to Ellen Lai, who spent some time with me. She's the one who took me to Golden Dragon, and invited me to her house to tat and stay for dinner. I've learn a lot about tatting and also a friendship in tatting. Thank you and I hope I can see you again someday.

That's that, my 2 weeks hibernation. I've enjoyed my time and I hope you all too...^_^
