6th project (Higher level)

Purely quilting.

I started making this project before coming back to Malaysia. Progress is a bit slow but I believe if i keep one working on the quilting these few days, it should be done by next week. Problem is I need yarn thread to insert through the empty place along the quilted area. Guess the rest of the work can be done when I am in shanghai again.

After this project is done, I still have 2 more to complete then I am considered finished the entire course. Am thinking of whether to take machine sewing course at another school now....

A little preview of my current project

There are lots of small appliques on this bag ... it's about something from the garden.

While working on this bag, we were in the middle of moving house because the old apartment we are staying doesn't provide good sunlight, the whole house was totally dark after 2pm. We decided to move to the other block in December. We didn't get any despatch man to help us, so it was really tiring for me to move things over to the other house. The whole process took us 4 days (plus arranging all the stuff).

voilĂ  !!

Piano is not mine, the owner is too rich that she didn't want to bring it to her new house. In fact, she left another big acquarium for us too.

< A confession - I suddenly realised that I bought so many fabrics, 2 full cabinets, have to slow down from then on >

Jenny's bag

I am now back to Malaysia for Chinese New Year. It is just pathetic that I need to update my blog after so many months because in china, a lot websites were banned for no reason. Sites like blogspot, facebook, twitter and other popular fun sites were fully banned. It was really suffering when I can't even update anything in blog when I was in China. As a result, I found a temporary solution to use now. Well, it is considered lucky that they didn't ban hotmail or life is really going to be very boring over there.

Have some idea of making Maggie's bag. The theme was based on my trip to Hokkaido few years ago, picnicking during sakura season.

Another side of the bag.

The front applique - Picnic basket and hat.

Apple core patchwork

It's so great to come back to Malaysia, I can access to blogspot whenever I want. I haven't been able to update anything for the past few months, staying in china really has lots of restrictions. While in china, a lot sites were banned, blogspot, youtube, facebook etc, I wonder why is the reason.

Here's my latest work. Currently I am working on 3 other projects at the same time. Hopefully I am able update before I leave for china again.
