Happy Valentine's Day

Lowly WormMy son has recently been reading a lot of Richard Scarry books. We bought some online and we also borrowed a few from the library. His favourite character is Lowly Worm (who doesn’t like him?). Then I saw this blog post that made me want to sew my own Lowly Worm doll and I was on the search for a Richard Scarry’s Best Make-It Book Ever! (apparently this is not that easy to find since it was printed in 1977). I finally found one on eBay and it’s the cutest thing ever. Lots of crafts and fun stuff to do, and all the pages are in colour.

Anyhow, I did end up making my son a Lowly Worm doll this week and when my hubby gave it to my son on Saturday morning, he’s been carrying his wormy friend around with him since then. So cute.

We also made some cupcakes this weekend. I think I added WAY too much confectioner’s sugar in the buttercream frosting so when I had out the cupcakes, people are totally going to have a sugar rush from eating them (whoops). Perhaps I should have tried to correct that by adding more butter… I made the cupcakes and frosting using the recipes from Martha Stewart’s Cupcake book.

Well, it was 13 years ago that my hubby and I started dating. Wow, time flies. Now we have a son and are expecting our second child soon.

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day and a Happy Chinese New Year everybody! :)

  1. Your lowly worm is awesome!!! My 3yr old is OBSESSED with Huckle and Lowly. I would LOVE to be able to make one, but unfortunately I am so new to sewing that I cannot even fathom how you made this!
    Thanks for posting about it.
