Bobwilson123's Crochet Headband Challenge!

Hey everyone! Happy weekends! (:
I've been a big fan of bobwilson123's crochet tutorials on YouTube.
HERE is her YouTube Channel, and HERE is her blog.
She mentions about the ''headband challenge'' in this blog post.
This is my entry.

 
 

It only took me about 2 hours to make it.
Below is her YouTube video tutorial for this headband.



One of the criteria is to "decorate" it..
Instead of doing normal double crochet, I did ribbings, like she suggested in the video, by crocheting only in the front loops/back loops.
And used 2 shades of grey, instead of a monotone.
I didn't want to add flowers or anything, since the bow is already very beautiful.
I hope I have "decorated'' it enough.
If I added flowers or other things, I don't think I would wear it out.
(Edited to add: I added the yellow flower brooch in the second photo to qualify for the challenge, as suggested by the host, Clare. (: )

Thanks so much for dropping by and hope you could join her challenge too! (:
It's heaps fun and I might be making more for it :D

I'll do anything at all but homework...

And sketching sounded like a good idea..



Tablet Sleeve - Grey and Yellow




I was making a sleeve for my laptop, but then, Mitch bought me a new tablet.
I was about one-fourth of the way with laptop sleeve, but I got lazy and turned it into a tablet sleeve.

I love the color combination of yellow and grey, it is one of my favorite!

See what I mean? It is so pretty!

Here are more photos of my tablet sleeve.

It is like...Magic!

The last week of September was 'magical' for me...
Mitch visited me for awhile during his school holiday.
Since we've been big fans of Harry Potter, naturally, we went to Harry Potter Exhibition at the Marina Bay Sand.

It was on 25th of September. We were enjoying all the nice props from Harry Potter films and having a blast!
I thought this day couldn't be more perfect than that! I was so wrong, of course.
Oh yes...I have already talked about it over 10 times since my close friends and family want me to tell them in every details..Most of my friends kept asking until I have given them a lengthy account of it..

Anyway, so we were just really enjoying the exhibition and Mitch said we should go to less crowded rooms. We found an empty room and well, he was all sweeeet and loving and of course, he's always been like that, so I didn't see it coming...and next thing I know he was kneeling down in front of me with the most beautiful ring I've ever seen..asking me to marry him! I didn't hear much of what he said after that, since my heart was racing and I was over the moon! Of course, I said YES! It was so magical, ah yes, we keep saying that whenever we recall that day. Magical...quite literally! It was in a nice dim room, surrounded by all the costumes, wands and props from Harry Potter films. It couldn't have been more perfect than that! (:

We are planning to take our engagement photos in Australia in December, but still trying to find a photographer. I can't waitt!

I'm sure you want to see the ring?

Our Engagement Ring (:

It is so beautiful, isn't it? I wish I was wearing it right now, but, there's no way he could have guessed my ring size right, since I have tiniest finger..So we are getting it adjusted! :D

And of course, for once, I willingly paid the over-the-top price that they charged for photos at those kind of event. Mitch likes to think it is our (unofficial) engagement photo. :D Although..I wish my hair looked better than that!

Engaged at Hogwarts (:
