Sleep and 2 new projects

For those of you who read my FB status, you would realised that recently I have been sleeping really late and waking up considerably late in the morning. I am usually an early riser, 7am at the latest; but I have been waking up around 10am these past week. The reason for this is because I’ve been hooked onto watching sitcoms on YouTube and playing online games. It’s a wonder with modern technology and social media, everything is so accessible from the comfort of my home. Not only that, I get updates via twitter on news and upgrades for the movie or games which I subscribe to. All I need is internet connection and a laptop… ^^

Meanwhile, I got 2 projects in hand, using these 2 combinations of fabric. What do you think?

The pastel peach colour is so soft and sweet.

I find the umbrellas very kawaii, and purple is just royal !

I will share the outcome of the projects soon. Have a nice day!

japanese cotton and english cotton

Just couldn’t resist them!

Look what I bought yesterday?

more cotton fabric

I needed more plain coloured cotton for my bags… but the rest was just because they are too good to resist.

Somehow grey and pink appealed to me yesterday. I was a pink & grey gal ^^

These are English cotton, from Lancaster the Uncle told me.

Oh what cuties!

2-sided cardholders

Yesterday was public holiday for Malaysia… so I stayed home for half the day finishing up some custom orders…

2-sided cardholders

We visited Digital Mall to grab some of those special papers which I make my labels with (the last of the last batch says the salesgirl! glad i got them… hehehe) and saw some lovely netbook on display… so I’ve been thinking about it since last night, and decided that I will get one for myself when I get my bonus this year *smile*…

Last weekend, I’ve also managed to tidy up my fabric closet. Well, if you think this is not tidy enough… you haven’t seen the “before” photo! Haha…

Updates updates!

Hello Friends,

I made some changes on my shipping policy over the weekends.
As of 2nd September 2010 (any orders received on 2/9/2010 onwards) will be automatically posted as REGISTERED mail with return receipt. This is for both domestic and international shipping. I made this change to serve you all better, giving you {and me} a peace of mind for safer shipping just for a small additional fee. :-) You will be able to track all your purchases and need to sign for the package when they arrive.

~~~~~~~~~

Over the weekends, I have also received some pre-ordered fabric for you lovely people ~ thank you so much!!!
There are some left {cos I ordered extra for myself hehehe…} and I will either list them in my shop or make them into lovely pouches!

New Linens

I have a 2 new pouch designs coming up…

Look out for them ya?

These are my absolute favourite linens at the moment. Double sided… one side polkadot, the other side strawberries!!!

Matryoshka applique flex frame pouch

I made a flex frame pouch with plain cotton, and embellish her using the matryoshka applique I made last week.

I sooo love matryoshka motives and flex frame. Don’t you?

~*~*~
Meanwhile, last weekend I went to Ikea because I had a $50 coupon. What else to spend them on but fabric hehehe… I got these on a bargain 50% off the normal prices, all in 1/2 metre or 1 metre. They are thicker cotton, so very good for making tote bags… best of all no need to use interliner! Yay!

Ikea fabric

Now I’m off to snip ‘n cut up some pattern for a new tote bag I have in mind :-)

Meanwhile, I am the happiest girl at home today… beeee-cossss I got new stash of fabric {enough to share some in my shop!…}.

Some updates …

I’ve started sewing again… {with my machine}… I realised I got too used to using the “hand button”, that today I decided to use the stepper (is that what we call it?), and my hands and legs just don’t coordinate well. I don’t know if you understand what I’m trying to say hahaha… Oh well, I made a few bags with my very limited Japanese tenugui fabric . Will post photos later, as I am too lazy to get my camera out now.

My SALE is still on at http://WhimsyLoftShop.blogspot.com. Daily I will list a few items… one of them will include this beautiful Japanese cotton. I only have 1/2 a yard though…
