A Determined Weekend

My son is staying with his grandma this weekend so I am totally free!! My to-do-list:

1. finish the sewing room cross stitch and make a cover for my sewing machine
2. make a new phone pouch for myself
3. list fabrics and some cute stickers on my etsy
4. make a tote bag
5. make some zipper pouches
6. watch some movies on HBO (can do this while cross-stitching)
7. do some reading. Recently reading the Nanny Diaries, want to have some light reading about taking care kids...haha

Omelette with pork, onion and bell peppers for toddler

As a mother, I always explore on the web for food that other mothers make for their children. I made this omelette for my son this morning and it suddenly dawn on me that I can share it here. This one is easy to make and it has many colours (means different nutrients). 

Ingredients include minced  pork (or beef), some green, red and yellow bell peppers, some onion and an egg. You just need to chop the bell peppers and onion into small pieces and stir the egg.

I stir fried the minced pork first. When the pork changed colour, I added the bell peppers and onion. 

I added the egg after the onion and bell peppers went soft. 

This is the finished omelette. This is easy to make and it is good for toddler.

My son, Christian, started learning to eat by himself. He still needs a lot of practice but I am glad that he is making improvement day by day.

Kumamon Baby Bib for My Boy

Do you know this bear? It's called Kumamon bear. It is very popular in Hong Kong and of course, in Japan. Iis a mascot created by the government oKumamoto Prefecture, Japan. You may take a look at wiki to learn more about this bear (

I think the fabric is cute so I use it to make a baby bib for my boy. However, my mom doesn't like it because it is blank in colour. >.< This is a very traditional Chinese thinking, who thinks black means something unfortunate. Anyway, I like it. 

I will also list this as a made to order item in my etsy shop.

My New Attempt - Baby Bib

Since my boy was born, I always wanted to make baby bibs for him. I have envisioned many cute bibs and how to make them in my head for many times. Finally, I put my thought into action!! I drew the pattern using one of his bibs. I am quite satisfied with my project this time although my 13-month boy did not show any interest or appreciation on it, as expected. XP

I used a high quality quilted linen fabric as the back. I know most people use chenille or flannel. However, I don't know where can I get chenille or flannel in Hong Kong. Last week when I was shopping in a local fabric shop, I saw a high quality quilted linen fabric and I thought I could use it as the back of baby bibs. This quilted linen back make the bib sturdy and absorbent and I really love it! 

Although I have a boy...if you know me, I like making girly things more, so I made this hexi patchwork bib. This one is listed in my little etsy shop now.
