My cousin has requested for a quilt for her daughter.
After discussions on the pattern and the choice of fabric, I set to work on it. The half square triangles, HSTs ready to be pieced.
The individual blocks:
The quilt in its full glory.
And finally, the quilt all folded ready to be packed and shipped.

My very first.
The customer wanted to make a muffler for her husband’s birthday gift in May.
She chose a multi-colored wool yarn that is ideal for a man.
Together, we have agreed to use a simple ribbing throughout. A simple knit purl pattern.
My tool for hiding the ends.

And a picture of the whole muffler.

This year, I have managed to gain a few more new customers who are interested in the HDTs. And lets hope there will be more.
These threads are ideal for fine crochet and tatting. Available sizes are 20 and 40. The threads are Lizbeth from Handy Hands.
These are previous HDTs but could not get the same colorway as before:

After making a pair for The Batik Boutique, I decided to make my own.
This pieced cover is 18″ square.
These others covers are 16″ square. All of these comes in pairs. You have an option to purchase with or without the cushion inserts.

One more item can be striked out off the want-to-do list.
Quillow – quilt + pillow. For my case, I use two pieces of fabric sandwiching the batting.
This is my second quillow order for The Batik Boutique.
The quillow. I loved how the size is very similar to a standard pillow.

All folded up to be stuffed into the pillow case.

with The Batik Boutique.
I started using Velcro but it was not working. There were some tearing of the inner vinyl side.
So now, we are using zippers … after facing my fears of zippers head on. After over 100 snack packs made with zippers, we are on a roll.

For the past few years, I have limited myself to the number of exchanges that has been organised by the great NEEDLESnCRAFT, NNC group. However, due to some prompting I have joined the latest exchange.
The exchange requires us to make two (2) flowers out of seven (7) hexagon petals. Some of the participants have stated how they want the flowers to be.
It is nothing new for me. I have made a queen size quilt out of hexagons for my parents eons ago (it is now very thin since I used polyester batting).
I have fabric for the petals so I just pull out from my stash or leftover from my previous projects.
There are also a lot of paper hexagon templates I have made for a mobile project. That will have to be put at the back burner since my hands do ache if I do too much hand crafting.
These blue prints (as requested by my partner) are from previous quilts.
