Hye there lovelies...how's life? I hope its not as topsy turvy as mine...so crazy rite now in the house, as I scramble to keep everything and everyone together. I am definitely feeling the heat now and oh God, please give me strength to brave this semester out *pray hard*
So, to lift my spirit up a bit, took sometime to put together these tiles. Mind you, that Some Sewing in the title should be Some Sewing from Ages Ago or something lol...it's hard for me to finish even one project in a day this last few days. A few stitches a day is already a huge accomplishment. But, since sewing destresses (is that even a word?) me, I still sneaked it in either late at night or very early in the morning. It keeps me happy AND motivated.
The above is a simple A-line sleeveless top I made for my niece baby Widad. My sis in law placed an order months ago & I still owe her one more outfit. The lovebirds fabric in black is now rare, that was my last half yard. Notice how the ties are at the shoulders? Something different, major LOVE! The pattern is modified from Cucito (Japanese pattern).
This one is a sweet, simple pinafore type dress. I used snap buttons on the shoulder (Kak Azidah if you're reading this *hugs* to you! ;) ). The fabric is the sweetest shade of pink, Monaluna dots and Art Gallery swirly combo. This pinny is roomy, great for layering with a t-shirt underneath.
I am off to study for 2 more papers, the midterm exam is scheduled this Friday & next Wednesday. My marketing exam did not go well so I need to buck up for these two. Sigh...I hate exams, really I do...
Let me leave you on a cheerful note though. Yesterday, my little Hanan asked me on the way out...
Hanan : "Mummy tak nak gi Pos Laju Laju terrrr??"
Me : "Huh?"
Hanan : "Mummy...tak nak gi Pos LAJU LAJU terrr??"
Me : "Pos Laju Laju??? Hahahahaha!!!!"
(I have no idea how to translate this to English, it's too literal but funny to me. It's about Hanan thinking that me using express posting/shipping means it runs really fast or something like that :D )
Her comments made my day...everytime! My girls are the very reason I am hanging on, tight.
Till later ladies, stay beautiful :)
