PhotoGrid_1420024477454

Can you believe that today is the last day of 2014? Honestly, where did the year go?

2014 has been an amazing year for me and here are some of the highlights:

  • Reached 363 followers on Instagram.
  • Started a little online crochet shop on Facebook.
  • Participated in my first ever craft bazaar. (Read more about it here.)
  • Leveling up my crochet skills especially with the elephant by All About Ami, Bibi the Ballerina Bear by Smartapple Creations and the large huggable bear by A Morning Cup Of Jo Creations.
  • Meeting one of my crochet idols, Mei from Amigurumei in person at the Hello Kitty Crochet book signing event.
  • Visiting the yarn stores in Bangkok, Thailand. (Read more about it here.)

I am truly grateful and thankful for all the love and support that has been shown to me thus far. Here’s to achieving more goals in 2015 and I certainly look forward to sharing more of my crochet journey with you next year.

Have a Happy New Year!

Blog Stuff: Updates (+ An Exciting Progress)

When I posted my hiatus notice more than a year ago, I did not mean to stop posting entirely. But things happened and life got in the way which eventually led to a real hiatus on this blog.  While the blog went through a hiatus period, my crochet adventures continued. Over the past year, I picked up a lot of new skills and managed to widen my crocheting repertoire to many different kinds of amigurumi and other forms of crochet like hats, a mini sock and even a pen holder!

Although I did not manage to share my progress on this blog, I found another platform to share my works. I started sharing my FOs on Instagram and to date, I have 50 posts and 96 followers. If you have an Instagram account and would like to follow my crochet journey, my username is “theamiproject”.

More recently, I reached an exciting milestone in my crochet journey. I collaborated with the talented Jessica Low from Jessica Doodles (www.facebook.com/jessicadoodles) to come up with an entry for the “Animals At Work” Design Contest hosted by Amigurumipatterns.net. We are very proud to present to you, Lady The Party Planner Llama.

Voting has begun and it would really mean the world to me if you could cast a vote for my entry at http://www.amigurumipatterns.net/designcontest/vote. Voting is really simple. Just click on the “heart” button on 5 of your favourite entries (including mine!) and enter your name and e-mail address to submit your vote.

I will be posting more on the back story of how the Llama came to life so stay tuned.

Till the next project. xoxo

Blog Stuff: Break

If you have been visiting the blog, you would have noticed my lack of postings. June is a busy month for me as I have my final exams to deal with. Plus I’ll be going on a trip soon so I’m pretty excited about that one too.

Things will be pretty quiet here for the month of June. However I am still hoping to post some stuff onto the blog so do keep visiting from time to time.

Till the next project. xoxo

Blog Stuff: Happy New Year 2012!

I would just like to wish a Happy New Year to everyone who drops by my blog. Here’s to better (web)site traffic, more fabulous crochet projects and hopefully a pattern I’ve designed by myself. That’s my wishes for 2012.

I apologise for being quiet for the past two weeks. Things have been busy and adding an overseas trip into equation just increased the busy-ness level. (Psst, I visited this really awesome craft store.)

Actually I have loads of posts and projects to share since I did crochet quite a lot. So stay tuned for more.

Again, Happy New Year!

Till the next project. xoxo

Projects Page Update + Break

I have updated the Projects page to include some pattern indicators. These are to assist you in searching for links to patterns you’d like to try out (hopefully after seeing my works *insert cheeky grin*). I hope the changes made are able to be of help to you.

In the next few weeks, I would also be cutting down on my crocheting and blogging activities due to my upcoming final exams. It’s time for me to crack my books open.

However, don’t discount entirely that I might be able to log in and write a word or two. Or maybe show some photos of a work in progress if I can.

Till the next project. xoxo

Blog Stuff: Hola Again

I am finally back on the blogging scene after one week of slugging through exams and an awesome one and a half week in Spain. Crochet hook, yarn and all my dearest crafting supplies, your owner has missed you guys so much. I just CANNOT wait to start on a new project.

Of course I have been on the lookout for all cute and adorable stuff (a.k.a. known as inspiration) while in Spain. The post on this will be up soon enough because the laptop containing all my photos are still stuck in my friend’s bag somewhere halfway across the globe.

Stay tune.

Till the next project. xoxo

Blog Stuff: Break + Away

I’ll be taking a break from this blog for two weeks for upcoming exams and also a trip overseas.

How I wish I could bring my crochet hook and yarn along but sadly, they do not allow crochet hooks on planes. On the bright side though, this would be a good opportunity for inspiration to arise.

Have a good week.

Till the next project. xoxo
