Back from Holiday

Hello...I hope I dont miss much during my holidays. I really miss reading my blog rolls and admiring great crafts everyone is doing all around the world.

In short, the holidays are quite FUN and hectic. Though we went away for almost a month but the kids were sick for a week, and spent another week for recuperation since we already planned to go to Sumatra. Anyway, all's well that ends well, right? ^_^

I still haven't downloaded all the pics of our trip. Got busy with housework and the boys' school work plus my sewing projects and also Ramadan is on. So all the photos will have to wait ^_*. But, here are few that I love. These beautiful beaches and the durians...yummmmm...can't have enough of it:)

Sewing is always my stress buster, to release tension from too much housework and the hustle bustle of Indian household ^__*. Esp. after long holidays, and I feel like the dust in my house just won't go away and made me wondering my India has so much of dust..;).

I haven't told you about the mini quilt swap that I do with my friend in Indonesia. I made this simple one and hand embroidered it my self.

Mini quilt personal swap

I took it to Indonesia to send it to her and guess what?? it got LOST in the mail. I just can't believe my self, it's domestic shipping and they LOST it. I felt so terrible, since I got mine. She made this pretty pinwheel quilt using Balinese Batik.

Mini quilt swap I received

Thus, I decided to make another one for her. I got the idea from Love of Quilting Magazine. It's double nine patch. I had so much fun doing the tiny squares and just finished the quilt top last night. I hope she will like it ^_*

So, that's all this week....I'm glad to be back to my sewing machine...^_^

Happy Sewing
