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 received a new quilted‬ product order from The Batik Boutique. It is time tolearn‬ a new free motion quilt‬ ‪‎design‬. ‪I picked a design from Leah Day’s Free Motion Quilting Project.


For the product, I have added two other quilting‬ designs‬:‪ stippling‬ and the classic‬ quilting affect in ‪Chanel’s‬ ‪‎handbag‬s.


And the completed product. It could be used as a ‪‎bedside‬ companion to keep your eye glasses ‬and hand phones. Personally, I would also keep a pencil & eraser because I love working with ‪Kakuro‬, a number puzzle before I go to sleep.

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.

My first order via Instagram.

She had chosen these beautiful fabrics from the Jungle Fun line when Spotlight had a promotion earlier in the month.


As always, at each step I will update the customer. I’ve laid out the pieces following an image she provided me. After moving a few pieces around she finally decided to choose the layout I originally done.


I’ve prepared the puff shells since I don’t have enough pins for all the 63 puffs.


The puffs all stuffed full of the most soft fiber purchased at Spotlight.


The completed quilt with the back and binding using a dark brown cotton.


The quilt has been received by the customer on Saturday morning. Included in the package, was a handwritten thank you note and a small gift (which I have forgotten to take a photo).
