Yippie... Its here!

I'm dancing! It really makes my day. Today is Thaipusam, a holiday for Selangor, Johor, Negeri Sembilan, Perak, Pulau Pinang and Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya. While my friends in these states having great time at home (are they?) and I feel soooo... green in my office, a parcel saves my day. It contain:

20 fat quarters !


I bought it from Quilt in A Day, I'm happy with the price, service and time of delivery. Next is to start Quilting stitching!

What a waste!

There are no appropriate words to describe my feelings at the moment. Angry, sad or unhappy? Its not angry, perhaps sad and unhappy or a mixture of other feelings as well. I want to start working on the Tea Coaster Exchange as soon as it permits. I know I'm going to be sidetracked once my MBA classes start.

Once the organizer of the exchange announce my partner, I immediately picked a red fabric from my stash collection, cut into appropriate sizes and put aside. Well, its lucky I only did that! Last night I was informed that there is a change in the partnering as someone had been partnered with somebody before. As my new partner does not fancy RED, those pieces goes to my scrap pile. I sincerely hope I could utilised them in my "long-wanted-crazy-quilt" project. Something like these perhaps...

I know I'm out of the league, if I want to come up like the last picture. Whatever it is, as I always say, be proud of your own workmanship. There's effort, determination, sweat and blood in it. (blood for picking your own fingers)

Enjoy your craft and Happy Stitching!

On the Hook Again


It’s been years since I did any cross stitch. The small piece of heart design was initially a cross stitch kit received from Radha of NNC. Its simple and quick to sew.

It’s also some time I had not picked up my hooks. This pineapple motif of crochet is picked from my mother's collection of crochet books (copyright 1968). At this moment, I I'm still debating on its finishing. Would it be a table center piece? Or would it be a bag? Let me dream on it... zzz..zzz..
