Since June 10th 2017, (I was discharged on my 57th birthday), my recuperating at home was filled with handwork and one of them is crochet.
One of the projects is crochet a table runner for my sister-in-law, Sarah. I am not good at it but I am trying my best to crochet it. Let me show you.
To tell you the truth, I can't wait for it to be completed.
Since my last post at the beginning of 2017, I said that I am coming back and finishing off all my old projects. Unfortunately it did not materialise at all. I have been working and have limited time to do my sewing. During the limited time that I had after work at home, managed to complete a single size quilt for grand daughter, Hanna. Polka Dotty Chevron Quilt
Anyway, I could manage to complete the embroidery blocks, for a dear teacher to my son, which will be turned into a queen size quilt. Let me show you.
Coming in to the new year of 2018, with the determination to concentrate and fulfil my promise, in April 2018, I was given a news that could not be swallowed. I had to go for a major surgery in June and now recuperating at home. Unfortunately, due to the wound, I could not do any machine sewing but only hand sewing can be done within these six months till December 2018. Now my determination includes to live life to the fullest with my love ones that are my children and grand daughter. Happy day everyone. Nonie
Yes I am back after such a long long time. My personal life has stopped me from continuing my hobby for awhile. Alhamdullilah I am a proud grandmother 'Lola' to grand daughter Hanna and she is 1 year 6 months now.
My determination this year is to complete my ongoing projects and half done projects. Yes I will!
On the new year eve, I have the urge to start cleaning my sewing room and it was a success, and my new year begins.
My 2017 diary given by my daughter Nur Amirah who lives in Melbourne, Australia, will be filled with my patchwork & quilting projects.
It has been at least three years that I have not written or post any of my work. A few things in my life have changed my normal activities. I have started working again helping a very close friend cum my tutor and mentor in this hobby of mine.
Anyway, soon I will be posting my work. I am missing my blog.
It has been days that I last wrote. Just completed sewing for the second group #8 that I am in.
It is kind of amazing when I see the colours being combined i.e. strong colours with subdued colours. I tried to choose colours as per requested by the swappers and hoping that they will like them. Done with love and friendship among quilters are priceless.
Now I am sewing for group #12. Will be posting them pretty soon.
This is another interesting project from JUQ organised by Rhoda Forbes...Big Star Blocks in which a block measures 25" square. A project where in a group there are 9 persons swapping internationally. This is for the 1st Group that I am in. It is good to use up all my fabrics that I have in store.
Now going to Group #8 and Group #12...see you again.
First and foremost Happy New Year to everyone and it is the 2nd day of the month. I have been busy sewing the Boxes Mystery Quilt organised by Kylie Kenny of JUQ which was a 3 days sewing project started on December 28, 2012 and ended December 30, 2012.
Owh well, I can say that this is the fastest quilt top that I have ever made besides the Jelly Roll quilt. Along the way in sewing, I made few mistakes which I was happy to face it, something that I always believe that I always learn through my mistakes..!! Ripping is one of my favourite task. So let me show you the quilt top that I have done with the instructions given by Kylie Kenny.
:Later on I will use black coloured fabric for its binding....Thank you for Kylie Kenny again for organising this three days on line project.
Now I need to complete sewing the Big Star Blocks for international swap and also finishing up 7 pieces cushion covers for dear sister-in-law.
