Birthday Hat

Here's a hat I made for Chai, a dentist friend serving in the same community I'm in (Singles for Christ). I gave it to her several days before her birthday. the color is in marroon. The color just matches her very well. It is a brimmed hat, althought it may not be very clear here because Chai folded or rolled the end of the hat.

I made up my own pattern with this hat, putting some popcorn stitches in a row then followed with v-stitch, and sc rows. Isn't the owner just as adorable as the hat?!

Upset with my broadband service provider

last week I lost my phone's dial tone and after it was fixed i lost my broadband connection too, with my computer prompting a message that it did not detect a dial tone. i've been calling my service provider for almost a week now and still they haven't fix the problem. I tried connecting it now but it still has the same problem, at the moment I'm using the dial up connection now, just to post and give updates to my projects and Sam's too. I do have a lot to show now

Here are a few of Sam's projects that she did in the office so she won't get bored:

Sam has made around 3-4 hats, some of which i can not show since she gave it away to friends.

I'm a proud crochet teacher! isn't it? here's a panoramic view of the summer hat:

My long weekend crafting

I just want to show what I had been doing last holy week. i've decided to work on these 6 cherubs in cross-stitch for the holy week, which had been seating in my room for a year now, waiting to be done. I've been really fascinated with crochet for a year that is why i've ignored cross-stitch for a while now.

Well, here's a photo of the progress I've made with this project:

My Weekend Get-away

We planned this a weekend ahead with my father, sister, cousins and aunts. The place is called Moalboal famous for it's white sand beaches too. A lot of local and foreign tourists come and stay here to enjoy nature. Some already live here. It is also one of the best diving spots in Cebu, about 2 hours from where I live, located southwest of Cebu Province. It was a great way to start my summer and get away from the hassle of the city and the pressure from the workplace. Besides, i want to see a different view aside from the buildings and just going around the malls every week.

We didn't mind being scorched by the summer heat...we all just want to are some photos that I'd like to show you all:
