Another Sue but this one was machine-appliqued to be finished as a quilted pouch. Use Japanese yarn dyed fabrics for pouch, and cotton for Sue motifs. Pictures shown front and back of pouch.

Mek Su lagi..sulam tampal pakai mesin jahit. Ni nak jadikan beg kecil.

A very useful item when sewing by hand. You slot in the needle eye, slide your thread tightly and press the lever. The second picture shows how the needle is threaded into the eye.

Alat untuk mencucuk benang ke jarum. Walaupun mahal skit harganya, tapi amat berguna kepada mata2 yg sudah agak kabur..hehehe.

First hand applique

My first hand applique piece. Next to quilt the flower and the background and may turn this piece to a quilted bag.

Bunga masa belajar sulam tampal jahitan tangan. Selepas ni nak 'quilt' (lapikkan lapisan span/batting) bunga. Mungkin nak jadikan beg.

My first log cabin square. Quilted in the ditch. Well..need some more practice since it is not quite in the ditch. LOL!

Log cabin - salah satu blok tradisi dalam jahitan quilt. Untuk dibuat kusyen pin.

A friend gave me this cute pair of clogs which I want to turn into a pincushion. A sewer can never have too many pincushions!

Terompah Belanda, ole2 dari kawan. Nak buat kusyen letak pin. Terima kasih, Ina!

Sneak peek 2 - Mek Sue

Originally uploaded by myroz
Finished this last night. Took me 2+ hours. Still have some outline stitches to do, add some charms or buttons.

I love Sue or Sunbonnet Sue as it is commonly known. I guess it is due to my fascination with anything historicals..
Some links to history of Sue and history of Sue in quilt:

Suka motif mek sue ni. Biasa ah, bila buat sendiri akan lari skit dari design asal. Masih ada garis2t sulam yg perlu disiapkan dan letak 'charm' atau butang hiasan.

Today's lunch..simple pleasures

I am on a strong antibiotic medication right now, so doctor advised that I need a heavy meal before taking it in. So today, I have rice for breakfast. Packed some for lunch too..

Bekal hari ni. Nasi ngan kicap, ikan kukus yg digoreng, dan yang paling penting sambal belacan berulamkan timun kecil.

Sneak Peek..WIP

hand applique
Originally uploaded by myroz
..a scattering of hand-appliqued bobbins..It's quite a challenge to hand-applique such small designs. I still have to tackle another 2 of much more complex motifs than this..Wish me luck. Err don't ask me why the finished work does not follow the original design..

WIP=work in progress. "Kerja penyiapan sedang berjalan"..hahaha
Sulam tampal dgn jahitan tangan. Ni gambar benang. Susah ohh dgn motif yg kecil macam ni. Ada lagi dua yg kene disiapkan, yan glagi rumit. .Patut le nak jual barangan macam ni kene mahal.

This is for my larger English paperback. I put the nametag there to cover a mistake. My niece said why 'A'?

Kadang apa yg kita nampak, tak sama ngan pandangan kanak2. Anak buah kata kenapa 'A'?

Tau tak apa bento box? Ni macam tupperware orang jepun la. Banyak bentuk dan bertingkat tapi bukan tuk tapau makanan yang berair sgt. Orang Jepun kan byk makan nasi yg macam beras pulut.

Yang bagus bento box ni..isi makanannya bagus tuk orang berdiet. Sikit2 tapi byk jenis. Nantila satu hari akan post kalau2 rajin masak dan boleh bawa bekal ke ofis. heheh

Don't ask me what's wrong. Everything in life is basically the same but I found myself not stitching at all. Would rather pick up a book. Occasionally I would stitch MP's cottage WIP if I have that with me during my holidays (balik kampun or otherwise). I'll post the progress later.

However, I did make some good progress on my sewing/quilting skills. I sort of promised myself that this year i'll make some time to learn creative sewing and quilting. And I did! More pictures and stories later.

So I welcome you to my newly 'painted' blog. Decide to make it as simple as possible. You know..just like paint display out your finished creativities, you need a blank (almost white or lighter color) wall. And I also decide to make my blog dual language. It has been a long time since I had written in Malay. I think my last entries in Malay were during our reports on Berita MAS for Kem Penyanyang or something.

Selamat datang ke blog lama yg dibaru kan. Ye la, nak jemput tetamu baru kene la ada bende yg baru yg nk ditayangkan? Paling kurang pun kalau orang datang rumah, air bujang kene ada yg baru dibuat. Nantikan kemaskini dgn hasil jahitan yg baru belajar dan baru disiapkan.
