Amy Butler - French Paisley / Patchwork Bundle - Rainbow

i bought some nice fabrics from where the sellers are self-creative makers sell a lot of fancy stuffs... i plan to make some out of them when i can. for my little girl, want to make something like bunny that i saw online that one made it sooo cute. why not i try myself???

this 100% cotton fabric is out of print and as you can see, it's pretty magnificent. the colorway is called Lime Peel and this remaining piece measures 71" x 44".
a bundle of fabrics perfect for patchwork, quilting, appliqué, and other small projects. 100% unwashed cotton. and bag of green colored scraps.

Many of these fabrics are designer.

crafty stuffs and CNY lanterns....

on busy saturday, i jus thought of browse around the holland village and for some thing makes me more thrills...

dragged my boy owen with me, leaving my little girl ash with maid at home, to holland village by bus 165 from AMK. owen complained abt the long drive there that made me smile wide - no more kiddie fights :p

reached holland shopping mall, my first heading to bead factory where i have been fancied long time ago i bought a few sets before. it made me drooled... bought a 3-stranded necklace, boxes of colorful beads and tear-drop crystals... damn cheapest than other shops. and make some more trips to various shops within that mall before took bus back to AMK central, bought some crafty for my friend.
ahhhhh, finally reached home and rested my worn-out legs and asked for a nice cup of MILO, made by my maid wati. i asked ash where the stuffs my friend bob dropped by earlier (in my absence) and rec'd the stuffs. OH MY GOD!!! bob folded wrongly. anyway, i un-do and re-folded correctly and made the final lantern.... within a hour.

and see the other lanterns i made other time...

Apologises from little one...

my little boy owen was wrong what he had done and often "bullied" his big sis ashley. i gave him a good leash. next day he expressed his regret by offering me a small bunch of wild flower. it touched my heart. isn't it cute?

Another frame for Pete!

finally i created another one for pete as a remembrance with Hi! Theatre peers that he performed with many years before his marriage and had visited some countries.

it took me 3 hours (included lunch time) to draft out and ironed out the prefect layout - 1 metre length and contained more fotos of him and his old friends. am soo glad to hear that pete loved it soo much than i expected. my effort is worth than nothing...
