Broomstick Lace Scarf

As I said I'm really into crochet at the moment particularly I love the very challenging skills/patterns, this is one of my favourite one but believe of not, it's not challenging at all soooooooo easy! But looks sofisticated and GREAT! Don't you agree?

I found it from youtube (http://youtu.be/QzzlVMwewnY) then just followed it. I don't have a thick knitting needle so that I used a bunch of straws wrapped with tapes. It works anyway. I am making this for one of my beautiful friends, she loves beige or brownish colour so that I can't wait for the moment she said "Wow!" when she looks at it.

They said "broomstick" lace, but it looks to me rather "paisley", much posher than a broom sitck.  because it has big holes it won't take so much time to make a scarf that's another good news too.

The Heart Shaped Balloon with A Beanie on.

I made this for my friend who is in hospital right now I will visit her this week with it. Her favourite colour is green and blue that reminds her ocean she said. Here in Sydney has had very cold winter this year the best season to do knitting or crochet. I am addicted to crochet, making the heart shaped balloon at the moment. I went to get a bag of balls of yarn (they were discounted hurray!) I am making a quite few variations of balloons and they will be on the shop very soon.

I have experimented many ways of displaying it, I really like the idea of displaying as if it's floating in the air because it is a balloon. The simple wire does the magic.

You can hook the wire on any bottle (Energy Drink would be ideal for a cheering up gift).

Balloon_fiona02

Simply just stick the wire into the back of balloon.

At the Dog Beach on the Beautiful Winter Day!

What I like about taking a photo in winter is you can get beautiful shadows everywher you go. Particularly I can see myself having a pair of loooooooong legs which I've dreamed about. We spent our time at the Wollongong dog beach for a few hours just so refreshing after the long rainy days.

We just arrived at the dog beach, I had longest legs of the day because the sun is still high up.

Now, my body and legs are even length. Our dog Henry's foot steps on the sand.

I don't look smart any more because the body's taken over the legs.

The foot steps of Mike (my husband) and Henry, I like how they walk together.

Yes, a quite windy day which created choppy waves, but look at the blue sky! I would like to send the crisp cool air to my friends in Japan who starting feeling stinky hot air (I really feel sorry for them).

The shadow of Mike and I, Henry on the left hand side, beautiful clouds in the blue sky. What a wonderful winter day!

Beer Can Bot Has Devious Disguise

Love it!

via Make: Online by Sean Michael Ragan on 9/06/11

The diabolical “Can Bot” from YouTuber longjie0723 will wait until you’ve had one too many, then, at just the right moment…ATTACK!

Actually, there doesn’t seem to be an “attack” button. I naturally assume it’s coming, though, in the second prototype. [Thanks, SeanECE!]

News From The Future: Augment Reality Stamps

I would like to know how it's made!!

via Make: Online by Phillip Torrone on 8/06/11

The Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAI) and TNT Post present the first stamps in the world with augmented reality. The stamps show five futuristic buildings designed by famous Dutch architects. When put in front of a webcam, these buildings will appear in 3D on the stamp. By moving the stamp, users are able to see the virtual building from almost any angle.
