Sunday Morning

I haven't blogged almost a week!
Just feel I don't have something to share.
So...what should I want to share this Sunday morning?
maybe start with this one...

a new shoulder sling bag.

I think for the next post I'll put a tutorial here in making it.
What do you think?

Another news that made me happy 2 days ago was one of my pillow cover was on Etsy Front page!
Here's the link if you want to see...



I'm excited for this weekend! Really looking forward to meet her, a new friend from Holland who want to stay at our home for about 6 weeks. Actually, she's one of my husband's good friends when he was studying there last year.

While waiting ... I made these:

a clutch for holiday gift

As a dog lover who doesn't have a dog :(
I made this cute little pouch.


Give Away for this week !!

This week, Angie from The Country Chic Cottage featured my shop at her gorgeous blog and helped me to make a giveaway event!

The gift is not only my Autumn fold over clutch from my shop, but she has many more gifts.
Please visit her blog if you want to join this fun :D

Hurry...she'll wait for the next 72 hours to pick the winner :)
Good luck!


Sew, Fun and Done!

For 2 days, Monday and Tuesday I could finish all these....
Can't believe it though! Because this is the first time, hehe..
This is the 'Circle Geese' block I made for Felicity from Sew & Bee Happy, my new bee group.
These 2 blocks will send to Debbie, one of my friend from the previous Bee group I attended, 'Bee Addicted'. A little behind to send her since I supposed to do that last month. Sorry, Deb!
Debbie will make a complete quilt from blocks we sent her and it will go to a fundraiser for children in foster care & protective custody there.

And the last one...
I sew something new for my shop :)

Truly yesterday was 'Sew, Fun and Done' day !


Circle of Geese Block and a New Tote

Last night I gave it a try for making this Circle of Geese block (actually still on a quarter circle) using paper piecing with left over scraps. It was a 'practice block' before I really sew today for Felicity. She's one of my new 'Sew & Bee Happy' friend.
October is her block.

I also add a new tote on my shop.

This white floral on blue Tote with a lovely tie front accent is made from high quality Indonesian batik cotton and muslin. It hold a lot, but isn't too big! That's the most I love from this bag.
For accompany your day to a library..it's perfect! The tote could carry couples of books inside.


I love sewing, not cuting.

Yes, that's true..
I love sewing but not cutting! What about you? Lately I also feel more comfortable to cut with a scissor than rotary cutter. Enjoy the 'smooth' movement so much.

Because of the 'cutting issue' ..
I made these pouch this week , less cutting than if I made bags or quilts :)


24 hours a day...sometimes not enough!

I often feel that way .. especially on the beginning of each week.
Like this Monday, since early in the morning until 4 pm I had to move from one place to another, take and pick up kids, daily check to the preschool, daily household chores, some errands, etc....except touch my sewing machine! No time for it.

I don't know how to achieve my goal in making at least 3 items each week for my shop.
Hopefully having a new 'Etsy Holiday Boot Camp' buddy Lisa from Waterpathdesign would encourage me to do better.

Last weekend I finally able to complete making these 2 Autumn bags, need a whole week to sew both of the bags. I bought the Autumn leaves and acorn pattern fabric last year, just found it on my pile of fabrics.

For this clutch I used Indonesian batik cloth. The finishing of this batik fabric is really special. When you touch it.....the fine protruding fibers on the surface would give you a feeling of 3 dimension shape of the pattern, slightly rough but beautiful indeed.
At this moment ...I feel very sleepy. Couldn't write anymore, so...goodnight to you :)
