Another one Christmas fabric ATC I traded with Peggy - real Christmasy looking in my favourite bright red and green. Thank you, Peggy!
I was in the mood to hand-stitch a few more felt ATCs, especially Christmas ones.
This pensive rabbit I sewed with Joey in mind, as she's a "rabbit" who is always lost in her own thoughts!
At last Thu ATC session at Bishan Library, Moses bought lots of rulers for us to try to create geometric art with them. What do you think of everyone's effort?
These I traded from (from top left going clockwise): Moses - Someone I Know (that's me with my tatting!), Rebecca - Paper-cutting "Faith", Pei Ling - Someone I Know (the kangeroo symbolising me and Kristine who I always bring with me to the trading session!) and Joey - She drew her favourite rabbit rushing off to her favourite fried rice!
Directed by Hossan Leong, BEAUTY & THE BEAST is a spellbinding musical comedy, filled with laugh-out-loud jokes, fabulous song and dance routines. The merchant was Big Boss Bong and his three daughters were Brandy, Desiree and of course, Beauty. At the Beast’s mansion, Beauty encountered the fussy nanny Ah Ma Chow Chow, the excitable cook Baba Pongteh, and the sarcastic maid, Vacula Contessa. And there was this exorcist, Master Kong Tao, who vowed to purge the mansion of its ‘unnatural’ elements!
In last year's Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs, I felt that Sebastian Tan as the Queen stole the whole limelight and the twist in the story (the Outer Limit and landfill, the rubbish and the environmental message) was definitely more memorable. This year's Beauty & The Beast, the limelight was more evenly spread, but even my DH agreed RJ Rosales as The Beast was so dashing and charming (a little pity he had to hide his handsome face under the well-crafted beastly mask most of the night). The other characters: Karen Tan as Ah Ma Chao Chao was a real darling nanny, Chua Enlai as Desiree Bong and Darius Tan as Brandy Bong (Beauty’s sisters) definitely drew the most laughters! Not forgetting all the stunning costumes and sets and singing utensils from the sewing, food and cleaning departments!
