I'm Back!

Hello there! Sorry for the lack of updates. Life has been extremely busy. I'm glad that in the midst of busy-ness I've managed to make a few special things like a sweet Dr. Seuss apron and some colorful pillowcases in bright graphic prints. My sister is going to love it.

I'm going to post a few more random handmade projects after Thanksgiving. See you then!

Lunch Bag it!

This Japanese style lunch bag is one of  my favorite things to sew. It's such a cheery, lovely bag to carry your office or school lunch. My family and friends are just so thrilled when I make lunch bags  for them in their favorite colors and patterns!

This is just one of the many cute bags and totes that will soon be available in my new ETSY shop.

Sewing Pretty

I've been pretty productive cranking out cute lunch bags and aprons. The lunch bags are made from some of my prettiest Japanese fabric stash. These lunch boxes will be available in my ETSY shop soon.

At home with gnome

Aside from matryoshka nesting dolls, garden gnomes also fascinate me. There's something so magical about these adorable garden keepers. This Mr. Gnome belongs to my brother's collection. It's a planter garden gnome. You can plant a few sprigs of herbs or strawberry at the back of the gnome.

If you're an original gnome lover like me,  check out this wonderful blog Better Gnomes and Gardens

Giant babushka doll sighted!

Big, bigger, biggest! 

As you know I love collecting matryoshka or babushka nesting dolls. Here's the latest addition to my collection- a giant babushka wooden doll! It is so big it occupies a table all by its lonesome. See how the normal nesting doll sizes up to this beauty.

I have another babushka set to show you next time time.

Learning from the experts

I love DIY TV shows but learning new stuff is even better if I learn first hand from the experts. I just recently  signed up for a sewing/quilting class and I never imagined how fun it could be. It is so wonderful to learn quilting hands-on. With constant practice,  I hope I can be as good as my teachers.

This dizzying array of fabrics and notions make my heart pound LOL! I want them all. 

Russell is teaching me how to do free hand stitching and the tricks of the trade. They're so cool!

Till my next blog post. Have weekend!

My Idea of a Candy Store

This is my idea of a candy store! I can spend hours in here just getting lost through the maze of tempting, sewing goodies.

Shelves of yummy Japanese fabrics, crafty supplies galore, handmade quilts and bags and cute sewing patterns greet the visitors of this  Japanese craft store. The staff are Japanese but speak fluent English. They're also so helpful and friendly to boot.

I'm thinking of joining the sewing class here. Should I or shouldn't I? The answer is so obvious.
