Harith's nephew, Roy, was posted to work in another country for a couple of years.  My first thought for a gift is, of course, the shirt.  haha.

I changed my mind and decided to give him a pair of pillow cases cause they will come in useful.

I had in mind that I should put all the names of his family and close cousins in a bubble.  Roy calls it "thinking of all of you" pillow cases and he likes this best.  And I like the caption very much.  I just wish he had put his head there for me to take a picture. LOL.  Here's a close up:

One pillow case is not enough.  So here comes another :

Another design done ... another person happy :)

I had a funny conversation with Jonathan this evening.  Of course it's always me asking questions and he answering with yes or no, or a choice of 2 words.

He just woke up from his nap and we were lying on his bed lazing.

Me:  "Jon, do you want to go out later?"
Jon:  "Yes".
Me:  "Where do you want to go?  Simei, Tampines Central, White Sands, CompassPoint?"
Jon:  "No".
Me:  "If you don't want to go to these places, then do you still want to go out?"
Jon:  "Yes".
Me:  "Do you want to take a taxi to go somewhere?"
Jon:  "Yes".
Me:  "So that means we have to go somewhere.  How about just downstairs, Tampines Mart?"
Jon:  "No"
Me:  "huh?  But you want to go out right?"
Jon:  "yes"
Me:  "Is it go out nearby or far away?"
Jon:  He chose "nearby".

At this time, I was a little puzzled.  I said "you want to go out, yet you don't want to go anywhere."

Suddenly .... ding ding!!!

Me:  "You mean you want mommy to bring you out of the bedroom to the hall?"
Jon:  "Yes".

I burst out laughing non-stop and he was grinning at me.  hahaha.

Harith said I better pray for wisdom for myself because our son is getting smarter than I am!  haahaha.

I was obviously not on the same wavelength as he was.

And who says that mommy is correct?   LOL!

I've been busy with tshirt orders.   I love doing them.  It's the last minute datelines changes that bogs me and I feel overwhelmed.

Then...I read this from the DAYSPRING ONLINE STORE newsletter I receive this week.

When you feel overwhelmed

Demands knock on my door.
Burdens beckon me to answer.
The to-do list stretches for miles.
I whisper, "I feel overwhelmed."
And in the stillness it seems I hear...
"Child, open your heart to Me
instead of the demands of the day.
Lay those burdens at My feet, not on your shoulders.
Let go of your list and dare to embrace My grace.
I do not require you to be overwhelmed.
I enable you to overcome.
And with Me, you always will."
I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. John 16:33

I've been busy.  Orders came in and I've been working on my transfers and at the same time, the roller pushers on the Craft Robo had to be changed because the rubber had loosened.

Thank God it was easy to change.

Did some new designs which I liked very much.  I did 2 different butterflies with 2 girls' names for my sister.
Printed them on cloth drawstring bags that I got from Daiso at $2 each.

A friend's daughter had her wedding last month and I did a simple LO for her.  A Quick-One-Hour-LO, that's what I call it.  LOL!  Was rushing it off so that I could give them as a gift 2 days before their wedding.

 The photo was from their wedding invitation card.  I used alpha beads to spell out the month and year they were married.  Didn't have numbers tho ...

Used my Pazzles Inspiration Cutting Machine to cut out their names.  Turned out good.

I can't remember what brand I used for the pattern paper but the cardstocks I used were Bazzill.
