Another Crochet Lover...

I Red heart crochet.... though I am just a beginner but all the tempting patterns available on internet make me learn more day by day...

The first time I made crochet booties in 7th grade… as our home economics project. But that’s it, never touched it again. 2 Months back after seeing some really nice crochet patterns on internet I bought all the material and started it again... though I remembered nothing.... but youtube helped me alot..... I learnt all the abbreviations, stitches, advanced stitches, everything from youtube.

I am very easily distracted...

Ok so coming back to the point, I made this really cute crochet bunny hat using this pattern from Girl in air. It came out nice... as per my first trail... BUT I couldn’t get the right pictures... my little one was so not ready to wear it…. Sick smile

After 1 hour of struggle this is what I got...



Earns of my cap were a little smaller than this one but otherwise it came out exactly the same…

A quick trip to Global Village....

Last friday after having dinner at our relatives place, we were coming back home at 11pm when I saw GLOBAL VILLAGE.... on its bloom... though it was quite late to enter Global village and we all were too tired but I couldnt resist... & finally (after alot of STRUGGLE:) hubs agreed for a quick trip for MASALA TEA (going to global village for tea... what an excuse... heheheee)

Global village is a festival held in dubai starting in the last months of every year.  A huge area is dedicated for this festival. There are 27 pavillions in Global village from different countries including Pakistan, India, Iran, Africa, Jordan, Egypt etc. And each pavillion offers, varity of stuff for shoping, cultural shows etc...  you can check their website for details.



Few pictures I took...

Getting ready...
Though its never too cold in dubai but it is open area... so its cold for kids...

THINGS NOT TO MISS
If its your first time to Global Village dont miss these few places...

1. Bundu Khan Stall, for amazing food. They offer amazing pakistani food puri, parathaz, grill etc

2. Africa Pavillian, for some outstanding stuff.... Their cultural masks, amazing hand carved furniture etc.

3. Pakistan Pavillian, for classic fabric... and shoes. Pakistani lawn, cotton is famous world over and really it is awesome.

4. Before visiting check on Global Village website for the schedule of programs (cultural shows of different pavillians).... their cultural shows are worth watching.
I always love going to Global Village... I will be going there again after Muharram.
Oh yeah... we went there last year as well... will try to dig out last years pictures too...

Have fun,
Irum.

Little girls...

I love to browse for new ideas... (this is the best relaxation therapy for me... when I dont have time to actually do something creative :|  )

And specially when it comes to stitching... my little one cant tolerate the voice... I have been trying to stitch 1 simple slip cover for my sofa, for last 15 days....

Today while browsing I came across this really nice website with really cute dress ideas for girls...

Katie really made me pray for a baby girl .... she got beautiful daughters & amazing talent.




These two are my favourate... Simple & Elegant.

How to - - - upload Blog spot background.

Few days back I was so bored with the old look of my blog that I planned to give it a new look…  
I had two options,
1. Either to make my own background and upload it
2. Or to get a free blogger background available online.
 
And Obviously I took the Second easier option….. I selected background from an online free web page and installed it in my blogger.

These are few resources for really good blogger backgrounds. Some one them also have matching buttons available.

http://aquapoppydesigns2.blogspot.com/
http://myblogmakeover.blogspot.com/
http://www.backgroundfairy.com/
http://slsfreeblogbackgrounds.blogspot.com/

 
So I Followed these simple steps for installing new background.

STEP 1

Choose DESIGN option from your dashboard

STEP 2
Select EDIT HTML

STEP 3
& then select SELECT LAYOUT TEMPLATE

STEP 4
Choose MINIMA

STEP 5
SAVE TEMPLATE and go to PAGE ELEMENTS from DESIGN options

STEP 6
Now ADD A GADGET

STEP 7
Add HTML

STEP 8
Add code of the background you selected. Save and done.

It is simple isnt it?

Deciding background took me alot of time (I am toooo indecisive, i know) but uploading hardly took 5 to 10 minnutes.

In next post ill show you how I designed my blog buttons.

Let me know if you have anything in mind...
