My first class was back in February.  One of the student just purchased five starting kits to make a bed size quilt.

The other student who had zero sewing basics but made an almost perfect baby quilt with her new sewing machine. That was totally awesome.

For this month, I already have two online classes. The first one is to make the standard baby quilt.

The other class, she had a block set in her mind. Working within her budget and what combination I can get from my stash, she plans to make a lap size quilt.

As usual, the end of the year will focus on 2016 planner. I asked@rozirahman to see her postings of her past planners and she introduced me to bullet journal or bujo, for short.

After reading and looking at her samples and Pinterest, I think this will be ideal for me.

I’ve picked up two notebooks which I have been eyeing from @aeiou_studio this afternoon and started​ my bujo journey.

And now that I have my notebook, I don’t know which fabric to choose for the cover.

​I have purchased this Daniel Smith watercolor set​ ages ago. Hoping to start painting, I’m using it in my bujo.

With bujo, it is so flexible that you can never find any bujos that are identical.

In a nutshell, bullet journal is to put down the content in a concise and short manner, or as @rozirahman put it, rapid journaling.​
However, I have adapted the concept and used the color concept of Hobonichi in my own bujo.
​In keeping to the original bujo, the main elements need to be present. The index is a must – for easier reference in the future. The subject or topic to group together the contents. Page numbers – well that goes without saying. And finally, the content in bullet form.​
You can read up more at www.bulletjournal.com to make your own.​

Here is a sample from my new bujo.
Instead of using the conventional bullet, I used colors from the Daniel Smith watercolors to box the bulleted content.
I have yet to add legends but I feel that it’s not mandatory.

This request was made for a customer that I was referred to.​ She wanted ten handkerchieves for her husband with his initials, JR. I recommended to add the edging all around.

The simple embroidery was done using a variegated #30 weight Sulky thread.

I am not keen on marking fabric with any erasable marker, no matter how trusted the brand is. Especially on these white handkerchieves.

Meet my favourite sewing buddy, the masking tape. For all the ten pieces, I used only four long strips the length of the handkerchief. Dec5_15_2

One of my crafters friend asked me to make a baby quilt for her grand-niece. The grand aunty has an eye for these designer fabrics from my stash, we added the black polka dot to give it a modern look.
The designer fabrics from the left are:
– Farmers Market by Sandi Henderson
– Heart to Heart by Robert Kaufmann
– Dessert Party by Ann Kelle

It is a surprise that different fabrics for the binding give different looks to the quilt.
