I have stumbled upon this #mayisformakers by LR Stitched from one of my favourite quilting blog. Even though we are halfway through May, I shall just jump in.

In my Etsy store ZarinaCraft, I will slowly relist my hand dyed threads (HDTs) – I have rewind the thread into proper skeins but I made a mistake of using a different prop in winding the final skein. So I need to take photos of the actual skein you will get.

I have been blessed to be invited to share a booth for the upcoming Selangor Expo 2016. Among the products that I will be bringing are my baby quilt, my own published quilting book, telekung or prayergown, and songket gift products.


These make ideal gifts or souvenirs from Malaysian songkets. The products I’ll be bringing are bookmarks, covered notebook, and stuffed elephant.


My quilting book which was published last year, showcasing The Batik Boutique’s Malaysian batiks.


And finally, my telekung or prayer gown that has the quilted look that I love so much. It falls just above the knees and the lining is covering the chest area.


If you are interested to carry my products, please come and meet me there. WA me at 60162222004 for appointments or where to find me.

Finally, the bookmarks has been introduced at a book club event last Sunday. I requested a table to sell my book related handmade products.

The sale on that day was nothing to shout about. However, due to my posting on Instagram: Zarina_Craft and FaceBook I’ve managed to get big orders.

Here is the table on Sunday.oct4_15_2 And here is a bulk order from my cousin. oct8_15_1

A craft group I am in, NEEDLESnCRAFT, NNC group has organized a cross stitch stitch-along. The organizer has kindly provided a kit containing a piece of the cloth (Aida or evenweave), the thread, and a needle.

It all started well – basting along the middle of the cloth, cross and lengthwise. Bee wax to ease the thread into the eye of the needle. My choice of fabric is 28 count evenweave. It was a bit tricky using the evenweave but I ended up loving it so much that it would be my choice for a cross stitch project.


All was going fine, cutting the motif into quarters (that was a major mistake). If there was a mistake, I would just cut the stitches out. But it got too much when going out and coming back to the middle, the stitch count just gone off.

So ‘throwing out’ the thread, I’ve picked up one of my favourite HDTs My Elle in size 40 and started again. We were fortunate that the kit contained two pieces of the fabric.


These biscornu were made by a crafter friend, Dr. Radha Pillai.


You can get my hand dyed threads, HDTs at my Etsy shop.
