Thanks for lending me your sewing machine

I have mentioned in my earlier post that I have made the kids costumes for their book parade at school. I was an instant dressmaker I must say because we do not have budget to pay the real dressmaker. It is my first time to sew a dress and I am pressured and scared. Pressured because I only have three days to finish their costumes and scared that I might ruin the fabrics. My interest in making dresses started when I was younger and seeing my late mother sewed dress for me and my sister. I took a little skill from my mother so to speak. So before starting sewing, I prayed for my mother’s guidance.

Sewing the kids costumes won’t be possible without the generosity of my neighbor. She let me borrowed her sewing machine for days without payment. I am so thankful for her because the costumes made possible because of her. Also thank her for she trusts me even if I do not have any experience in operating her sewing machine. It was really hard to run the manual sewing machine but it is fun. It is an adventure and another challenge for me. I am glad I am able to finish the costumes early without any mistakes. Thanks again for lending me your sewing machine. Till next time. God bless you more!

The costumes that I sewed


When the SIL told me that the kids will be joining in in the book parade at school I am excited. I told her that I will go with them and take some photos of the kids. It is their first time to join and I do not want to miss it. The older niece already picks the book character she wants and has searched online the kind of dress she likes. I have borrowed swan princess gown of my cousin however, she doesn’t like it because she already wear it during their Miss United Nation at school as Miss London. She doesn’t want to wear it again so to speak.

Luckily her younger sister Ella agrees to wear the swan princess gown. Good thing Ella is not that picky compared to her older sister. She knows and understands the situation very well, and I like her for that. She is like me I The nephew will be wearing a peter pan costumes. The SIL already pick his costume online. She picked the simple one. To my surprise, she told me if I could sew the kid’s costumes. What!? I only know how to draw costumes. I did not think of sewing one even in my wildest dreams. Since we do not have budget to go to the dressmaker, I tried to sew it but I did not promise to make a very nice result. Fortunately I succeeded in making the kids costumes. Look at in the photos above of the costumes that I made.

It’s hair treatment time

Once a year, I have my hair treated. And this happens during the month of December. It is my routine. Why December, because there are lots of events during this months. Party everywhere I must say and I have to look good and as well as my crowning glory. I have talked to the cousin of the one who did my hair treatment last year already. I haven’t heard of her reply yet, I hope that she is available to come in the city. Last year, she came because she has many clients that want her service. I have to book early because she has lots of clients and might be very busy next month.

Before, I used to go to the parlor/salon to have hair treatment. I have been to different salon because I do not like the service. I do not like the result of my hair rebond. However, after meeting the cousin of my neighbour, I guess I do not have to go to any salon because I like her service. I am satisfied so to speak. Also, she is doing a home service so it is less hassle. Plus the payment is the same when I go to the parlor/salon. Hopefully she will reply and do my hair treatment next month.

Medicines for their beloved pets

My cousins love dog very much. Every time they saw stray dog/s on the street they will pick it up and bring it at home. They do not care of the dog’s breed. Right now, they have ten dogs at their house. In fairness to them, they are a good pet owner. They always make sure that the dogs are in good health so they bring it to the veterinary. When buying for pain reliever for their dogs, is the answer. They will not bother to go to other pharmacy because they got the best pharmacy for their dogs/pets. Their dogs are member of their family, so they treat it with love and care. My cousins are loving and responsible pet owner I must say.

Big thanks to you cousin

I have shared here the cell phone that my dearest cousin made for me but I can’t have it anymore since my old phone is in my brother’s care. Still she gave it to me and I hand it down to my niece. The cousin did promise to me that she will make a new one. I am a bit shy because knitting a cell phone bag is not easy. I have tried it before but I do not have enough patience to do it. I guess it is too delicate and complicated. The things that I do not have when it comes to knitting.

Anyways, last week my so kind cousin gave to me the cell phone bag that she promised. I am so happy because she did give time to finish it even if she is busy at work and at their home. My happiness was doubled because the color of the cell phone bag is pink, my favorite color. I guess she felt that pink is my favorite color. Big thanks to my dearest cousin for the beautiful cell phone bag that you gave to me. I pray that more blessings will come your way and God bless you and your family always!

Do you like my cell phone bag and want to have one too? Just tell me and I will let my cousin know. For sure we will give you discounts.
