Crochet Update

I'm happy that I'm really into crochet designing now... I know its been a while since I first realized it. But the other day I was delighted to receive some new colors of threads from Coats Manila Bay :) I've been assigned to make some easy patterns using it.
Here are the two new colors (...I think they have a few more in the making) :

Birthday Greetings
I have a feeling that I missed a blog friend's birthday...I hope not. I have a bad memory, but I'm not going to use age as an excuse for that ;)
If anyone is celebrating a birthday, hope you let us know through your blog...

Here is the birthday girl I know:

Happy Birthday Mom!
Today is my mom's 70th birthday...oops, I dont know if she'd like people to know that. But I mentioned her age because it is a milestone. I've been thinking what I'm going to do when I reach that age, I googled some and here's some interesting notes I gathered:

What to do at age 70:
1. Stop complaining about your age and climb Mt. Everest like 70-year-old Yuichiro Miura, who became the oldest person to climb Mount Everest.
2. Ski across Canada like 70-yr-old Alex Nilsson (you might want to read the article, it has some training secrets in there)
3. Bike 20 miles a day like 70-yr-old Mary Drake Jackson
4. Compete in powerlifting like 70-yr-old Jeff Telljohn
5. Retire and enjoy life watching television, reading magazines and do some abstract painting like 71-yr-old Cheeta, hehe!
6. Get married like 70-yr-old Edna Townsend to someone 39 years younger. This article has their picture (...hahaha)
I cant decide yet, but I'm sure I wouldnt want to become a serial yarn thief like 70-yr.-old Audrey Yandel.
So mom, what have you decided to do?

That's good, keep on smiling!

  6. Thanks so much Pearlin, Deneen, Stacie, Chie and Tina! My Mom would be delighted to read your comments ;)

  9. Hi Mimi,
    Happy birthday to your mom. Sorry ngayon lang napagawi. Paki update nang link ko kasi na delete ko by accident, nag luko kasi yong blog at walang magawa, na bored kaya yong crochet blog ko pinag tripan :-(. Buti nalang na saved ko yong ibang post ko. Here's my new link

    Have a nice day Mimi and tc.

  10. Hi Beth,
    Mabuti naman at nakakadalaw ka sa blog ko, kahit nasa Canada ka... yung kapitbahay ko dito, nakalimot na...ewan lang kung bakit, naggaganchillo din naman siya. No time kasi magblog kaya siguro, di na-appreciate ang ginagawa ko.
    Have a nice day din at wag kang magsawa sa pagbisita =)

  11. Hi Mimi!

    I'm really thinking about it...maybe I'm going to lift some weights for exercise and maybe I'd go hiking, that's the least I would do =)

  13. Hi Mi,
