What I Was Up To

Hello everybody ! Hows your weekend .. ? Did you have a good time ? Did you get to finish your projects ? What did you have for lunch and dinner ? Have you watched that movie and get the tips on how to train your dragon... ? . .. hmmm .... 

Allow me to rumble mumble as it is now very late at night and here I am typing away the latest entry from my so-called-craft-room. 

As you should know I attended my first quilt class last Saturday with the Pondok Craft team to learn how to make a cushion cover. Its the first time I got the taste on what its like to patch and quilt. I am so indebted to Kak Dida for being so patient with me and also to my good friend Sri's never ending support because I know I am a very difficult student. I am intense ... impatient ... clumsy ... demanding at times and I can be very irritating too ( the type of pupil you dont really want in your class but someone you d miss when shes not around ...hahahaha).

And you know what ...... right away the next day, I made this :-



It s not finished yet but I m sure Kak Dida would be happy to see it.



This is the part I hate most, where you have to take off the "foundation". I even thought it should be ok if I just skip the ripping off the foundation part but then as I started to quilt .. I could feel the and hear the paper underneath. tsk !



And oh yeah ... I am a huge fan of the seam ripper. Even though it sure helps me a lot but most of the times I dont really trust my clumsy hand .. so my good angelic friend Sri is on the rescue this time .. such gentle hands she has ..

Ok. Thats all for tonite . Until the next entry .. we ll see insya Allah if I get to finish what I have started .....


Ciao ....
