I want a hippopotamus for Christmas

Merry Christmas to All !!!

 

When I was browsing I came across this link from Rambling Roses and fell in love with the song immedietely.

Lyrics :

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
Don’t want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
I don’t think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
He won’t have to use our dirty chimney flue
Just bring him through the front door,
that’s the easy thing to do

I can see me now on Christmas morning,
creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise
when I open up my eyes
to see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses
I only like hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me too

Mom says the hippo would eat me up, but then
Teacher says a hippo is a vegeterian.
(Short Music Interlude)
There’s lots of room for him in our two-car garage
I’d feed him there and wash him there and give him his massage

*******************I  imagine this part visually and Wow!! What a joy!!!!********************

I can see me now on Christmas morning,
creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise
when I open up my eyes
to see a hippo hero standing there

**************************************************************************

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles or rhinoceroseses
I only like hippopotamuseses
And hippopotamuses like me too!

Flowery Hotpad

Hi All,

I saw the Flower Burst Hotpad patterns in Ravelry and wanted to make it immediately.

Along with it I made small crochet flowers I saw with the recently purchased Knitting Cotton and I love the look.
I have hung them in a place where I can see them often.

I love this knitting cotton thread, they are thicker than crochet cotton and helps in making sturdy crochet items, they don’t buckle.

I made this long back almost a month and put in ravelry and missed in blog.

Thanks,

Sangheetha.

Embroidery on Kids Blouse

Hi,

I did this very easy embroidery on my daughter’s pattu pavadai sattai.(Its long skirt and blouse in traditional silk). She is completing one year and her “Ayushyahomam” is on this month. So we got her this pattu pavadai and blouse stitched by tailor. The blouse looked very plain so I added embroidery to make it bright.

Here it is….

I drew the design in a paper and then drew it again on the blouse and went with embroidery. I did not have the patience to check the neck and then carbon transfer the design. But I think it does not look bad.

I liked the neck design before making the central motif. It looked neat then but now that I have added I don’t want to remove it.

Small motifs on rest of the blouse.

Very easy and I enjoyed doing it because it will be so lovely to see her wearing this on her star b’day.

Thanks,

Sometimes

Hi All,

Most of my posts will have the title of the thing I wanted to show. Be it embroidery or crochet. But sometimes I am really lost.

I am not getting enough time to do the basic home stuff and not able to even imagine the rest.

Why is that some people find time for themselves while some others end up doing all others work and end their day in frustration and anger.

All these days, I missed my hobby and it has not done any good to me.

I can do decent embroidery, flawed crochet( I can proudly say all my crochet FO has one difference( mistake) from the original pattern. ) and disastrous sewing.

Sewing is the one which I love most but unfortunately I am lacking the patience and organizing capability when I am at runtime.

I spend more time in sewing but most of it goes in ripping the wrong stitches.

So I thought instead of being a dumbo, let me quit doing them.May be I am better at something.

But may be I’m not because  I haven’t found anything in past weeks which gives me the calmness I usually get my crafting.

So whether I am good at or not, I have decided to continue fervently on my existing hobbies.

So after  a hard task, I did this very easy phone cover.It fits properly on my phone and that is the most unexpected thing 🙂

Well, I started with simple DC as I did not use any pattern for it. In between I just skipped a st for a row and I liked the effect.

It is little tight for my phone and so I left both sides open so that I can push from one side to remove the cover, else it may become difficult to quickly take the phone out from the cover.

(see here again, I could have made this little bigger but crochet generally expands a lot so I thot it will be a proper fit. )

Now with the phone inside.. (taken from other phone 🙂 ) as u can see both the ends are open.

So this very simple phone cover has lifted my moods and it is the same thread I used for the bbbiggg doily.

Thanks,
