Another Eco Bag Again….

October 25, 2010

Haha….my friend knows me so well, she gave me this cute eco bag. How cute is that??

Today am doing my blogging in the craft room, the first time ever. Usually i did my sewing or crochet here, but blogging here companied by coffee and music is going to be my new fave.

i’m in love with any songs from Moby, especially Pale Horses and JLTF.

New Books

October 24, 2010

This is my new books lately. First is And Thereby Hangs a Tale, I never read Jeffrey Archer‘s books, but when i got sample preview from ibooks, the first story from 15 stories in the book, i like it. It’s such a long time i didn’t read this genre. So i was looking for the pocket book. Little bit hard because most of the bookstore here had the hardcover edition, which i really not a big fan of that heavy books. I’m gonna read another book by him later.

The other book is Guernsey Literary and the Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, which my sis had been recommended from last year, and i still distracted with the others book. I’ll write a review later.

Yogyakarta Getaway

October 19, 2010

Last weekend, we went to Yogyakarta for attending a ‘Puppet Shadow’ performance. Too bad i didn’t take my pocket camera, and it’s too complicated to bring DSLR to the show. I use my phone instead.

Well, at least i had the chance to take photos around our accomodation. Next time, i HAD to bring the pocket as well.

 

And below is the Puppet Shadow Show

 

 

 

 

 

 

Apron Time

October 12, 2010

I like to buy some dishcloths than make them into something rather than using them to my plate. I like the texture, and the motif is really cute. Here are the aprons that i made from dishcloth. I took the pattern from “One-Yard Wonders“, this is the first project i made from this book.

 

Magazine Piles

October 8, 2010

I love magazines. There’s magazine piles here and there in my house. And i rarely throw them out because i like to re-read again.

But since i got hook with internet, i decreased my magazine shopping.

 

Yesterday i went to Indonesian Bookfair, and i found the latest Martha Stewart Living magazine in a disc. price, so i took it and you know what, they gimme the gift that consisted of the last month Martha Stewart Magazine (which they had on selling display as well) and last month More Magazine (never read it–and also they had on selling display also) and a mouse pad and a pen. Am i lucky or what?? I got 3 recent magazines in one price.

My curiosity of foods’ taste make me want to try cooking it. Or the pictures of them. Delicious enough that i wanna try it. This Potato Gratin from Martha Stewart Living (found here), make me want to scoop it out and try the creamy potato. Here’s for our dinner.
