New Clothes

A new pattern, a new dress for her! I’m so glad it turned out fine. Love the tie. The dress just looks so sweet. 
There’s always a fear that the project will fail. I hate the idea of loosing a fabric cos of a failed project. Though my testing fabric are cheap but we love it a lot. 
 The dress seems a little loose but I don’t think I will downsize it. She likes it longer but I prefer it shorter for the length. Guess, will trim off an inch for the next dress. Can’t wait to sew on my favourite fabric. Yes, my favourite favourite, not hers! Hahaa.

I managed to sew another pair of shorts for the boys. I hope to sew another two by end of the year. But sewing shorts is not fun. It’s very time consuming. I have a very special fabric that just came in. I hope to sew a pair of twining shorts for them before the big day! Hahaa .

Latest craft project. It’s reversible. Love the fabric. 

And I have some sales thanks to a friend! Yay!

Ah Chew Desserts

And so Chewy took us to Ah Chew Desserts near Bugis. No, this dessert shop is not opened by him or his relatives. 
Children don’t really enjoy such desserts. The place is too small for my liking. For a period of time, I had to freeze cos Chewy told me there’s someone behind me but not giving me any details cos he was distracted.
I had black glutinous with rice balls. Find it rather bland. Celestiel doesn’t  like her fruity ice cream. She was expecting fruits like strawberry, kiwi, etc but they were lychee and logans. Hahaa. Don’t think we will be back soon.

For the Boy

Finally a pair of shorts for the boy. Size 14 for him. It’s too big but he likes it this way. Just cut another piece. Hopefully, I will find time and energy to complete it before end of the week. The boy is going through some growth spurt and has outgrown many of his shorts.

It’s drizzling but he desperately needed an outlet to exhaust his energy. We thought the class would be canceled but they did not cos there was no lightning alert. I had a very dirty boy when I picked him up. 

Amazingly Good

Celestiel has been coming back to report good news after checking her exam scripts in school. She received her scripts back yesterday. I’m beaming with pride for this little girl. She did very well for this exam, way exceeding my expectation. She did the least practice papers this time as I’m just too exhausted to chase her to do work after school. I just had a ‘marathon’ with Cephas and my work load in school is increasing. Moreover, she had so much homework to do daily. 

This is her Chinese results. I’m putting it here to serve as a reminder to the girl that she could do it with Jesus’ help. Both my children are ‘ang mo kia’ and Chinese is their weakest subject. Celestiel who only attended enrichment class this year ‘suffers’ the most. Her P1&2 results are challenging. Her SA1 results was not fantastic as she’s still playing catch-up with her P1&2 work. 
I remember she had to stay for an additional hour with her teacher in her enrichment class as the teacher wanted to go through the exam scripts with her. Think the teacher couldn’t believe that she didn’t do well for exam. Hahaa. I always tell her teacher that I’m happy with 70. But the teacher will say no and tell Celestiel to work hard to get Band 1. Hahaa. I’m thankful that the teacher has so much faith in her. 
Her school teacher is very surprised when she added Celestiel’s marks. Finally, Celestiel is top in her class for Chinese, making great improvement. Ok, disclaimer. She is in the last second class for Chinese. I’m so glad that the girl can finally graduated from that class and move on to better class after two years.  Amen! She’s pretty motivated as of now. I hope to sign her up for extra lessons this December to boost her morale a little, giving her a some head start before she starts P4. 
If you are wondering, we didn’t do much with her for Chinese. We don’t use the language at home. Our bad. My Chinese is ‘half past 6’ and my hands are full with EMS. Chewy is in charge of her Chinese but he’s lazy! Hahaa. So all credit really goes to Jesus, the teachers and herself. 
Celestiel, I know you will be reading this post one day. I just want to tell you how happy I am with your results this semester. I’m celebrating your success with you. It’s really a Jubilee we are experiencing. I know with Jesus, you will experience more success next year and the years to come. You will arise and shine like a true champion. Amen!

Spot the Difference

Do you see any difference? Maybe it’s harder to tell
from the pictures. It’s the length of her pinafore. Within a year, this girl has grown much taller. I have purchased a bigger size (size 32) two months ago. 
I was hoping that she could wait and wear the new one next year. But sadly, is is not happening. There’s a black hole in our house that is sucking all of Celestiel’s pinafore and PE attire. They have been going missing.🤦🏻‍♀️

I really find it a blessing to be able to sew to bless others. A fellow colleague has been downcasted lately cos many things have been happening around her. I thought to cheer her up a little, I would sew her girl a dress. 

I’m so glad the dress fits her to a T. The length is perfect. As there was some fabric left, I sewed a little tote bag for her too. According to my colleague, the girl loves the dress cos of the shimmery print and has asking to wear it. In fact, she insisted in carrying the bag to school the next day. Awwww, definitely makes me very happy to hear that someone loves the dress I sewed!

Personal Key

Celestiel received her personal house key. We went to Granduncle Dave’s shop to get him to make one on Monday. His skill is good. Spot-on for the duplication of the key. 
Why did I give her a key? Well, yesterday was a very busy day for me. I had a meeting and a funeral wake to attend. Celestiel doesn’t want to stay in school to wait for me when I told her she might need to wait till 5pm. 
So, after school I sent her home first. She waited for Cephas to return about 20 mins later. Both of them walked to market for lunch. Super. 
 We have decided to stop their after school care next year so it’s good to train them to be independent. But the real test is really next year when they have homework to be done in the afternoon. And of course my worry that the children especially Cephas who loves to open the door to strangers! 🤦🏻‍♀️
Sewed a key fob for the girl to keep her key. My first attemp in sewing the key fob.

Maxi Dress

Celestiel requested for a maxi dress few months ago. I finally received my fabric orders and whipped out this dress for her. 
Both Daddy and Brother said the same thing: Why such a long dress? You want to clean the floor? 
Hahaa... Boys! They don’t understand.
