I didn't say blackberry

thankfully I have some spare time that I could update this blog before the end of January.
about the deadlines.
as predicted, it's not dead yet. it's a zombieline
I did work as fast as I could and they postponed the deadline again.
facing deadlines means there would be a lot of pressures, postponed the deadline didn't make perfection, it's only prolonged the pressure.
That's why I can't wait after the uncertain deadline I need to knit so badly.

it's not a big project, it's a mini project, and it's not even a new pattern,
there's no concept behind this amigurumi.  I just thought a black bird would be cute.

Black bird and the strawberries

really, I didn't say blackberry, it's blackbird and strawberries!

I just happy to see the color of the strawberries :)
it's just my personal opinion, nature and the sun give the best color in photograph, you don't even need any special effect.

deadline, undeadline, zombieline

I won't be available to update this blog for a while.
it's for a while because I want it to be a short period but it's not up to me.

So I'm having a deadline in my daily job as animator layout setter drafter office lady (?)
I hope it's a deadline, but who knows it might be an undead-line or zombie-line.
in the bright side, I also have another deadline in my freelance job.  (it's bright, cause I like the project).
and of course a deadline for a special amigurumi project.
the amigurumi project is almost done.  I've done all the knitting/ crocheting, I'm still collecting some property for the photo session.
but I can't upload it any soon, not before March :(

to make a new post in this blog, I have to finish the deadlines first then make another (not so special) amigurumi. when will it be? time will give you the answer.

OMGrumi: Angry Ahok

this amigurumi is my last amigurumi in 2012, as a conclusion of my first year in Jakarta.
Ahok is a nick name of the new vice-governor in Jakarta. (since 2012).
I'm not a permanent citizen of Jakarta, but I have been living in Jakarta for a year and maybe for another year (NOOOOOO!!!)
I didn't have a right to vote the governor of Jakarta, but I think it's a good thing that Jokowi and Ahok won the election.
because as soon as they become the official governor and vice governor, they started to fix Jakarta's infrastructures.
You could easily find news or video of Ahok being angry at some officers who didn't do their job right.

I made it using "survival knitting kits" left in my home. 
Not really survival, but most of my knitting needles are in Jakarta, I didn't bring them along to Bandung.
Luckily, there are some yarns, cable knitting needles and some of my sister's crafting supplies.
I can't make the eyeglasses though :(
the Angry Ahok is very small, only 5 cm.

oh by the way, 2012 is also the angry birds' year.  but no, I won't make any angry birds amigurumi.

2013 !!!

Hey it's 2013!

I have no plans. at all.
but I'm ready for surprises, how about you?
I wish you will have a very exciting year :)

Flamingo Giveaway announcement

So sorry for the postponed announcement, thanks for participating on the giveaway :)

there are no doomsday (not yet, not now)
What's happened at December 21st was no doomsday, just some flood puddle.
I I never been trapped in flood for my first year in Jakarta until that day.
I was going to catch a train to Bandung, I already got the ticket.
The problem was one hour before the departure, it was raining heavily.
and like always, after the rain, the flood puddle came, and then the traffic jams.
Luckily it's not really far, I could go there by foot.  but some morons in motorcycle ride their motorcycle at the sidewalk made me trapped in another traffic.  yes, at the sidewalk, me walking side by side those morons in motorcycle, as if the rain and the flood wasn't bad enough.
I arrived at the train station on time, with wet and dirty clothes from head to toe.
I felt stupid when I finally on the train and saw no passenger as messy as me.
anyway,  I left the flamingo (for the giveaway) at the office.  I forgot to bring it along to Bandung, that's why the giveaway announcement is postponed.  And thankfully because of that, the flamingo is not damaged by the flood.

so.....  the winner of the Flamingo giveaway is Ghoulfang,
because even though there's no apocalypse, loneliness is a very terrifying thing for Flamingos.
