Weekly Digest

Days go so fast when you're having fun or have deadlines, even during the Pandemic. I always want to be able to write more regularly, like a few times a week, but sometimes, words just don't come to my mind when I am sitting at my desk. 
I thought I'll do a weekly recap kind of post once in a while. 

Let's see what I've been doing in the past week(s):

1. SEWING

I made a few face masks and Doitrei Pouch orders last week and as usual, I made one or two extra for stock in the shop. I made this plaid black and white spacious face mask and it turned out really cool. I also ordered jute drawstring bags to pack the face mask orders. I am thinking, many people need reusable bags to keep their masks as they go through their daily routine. So now with every mask order, you will get this pretty jute bag. Yay!

Plaid Face Mask

Also made a few face masks from Quilts Japan book using Indian fabric bundle.




I usually use this double zipper pouch to keep an extra mask, hand sanitizer, and tissue.

A customer was asking for a bigger size triple zipper pouch and I kinda liked the size. I think I'll make a few more when I get time. 





I also made this cute card wallet. This is one of the bestsellers in my shop now! I think many people love this Wonderland Fabric :).

2. QUILTS & FABRICS 

I finally completed the wall hanging which I posted in my previous Post and I also prepared a few coasters set for my small quilt shop! I'm so happy to get a few of my hand quilted coasters sold out! Thank you so much for the supports!!



For these teal and floral coasters, I tried using mercerized cotton thread. The effect is softer than using the anchor pearl (Perle) cotton thread but it's easier on my fingers :D

Coming up next....

A few mug rugs also in the making. I used this tutorial to make the above mug rug, but instead of using fabric strips, I am using 2.5" square pieces. What do you think?

New Floral Prints!


3. READING
I love reading Kathleen Tracy's Remembering Adelia. By the way, Kathleen is having a quilt along from her new book Schoolgirl Sampler. I was thinking to join in, but I'm very bad at following any QAL or SAL.


I also got 2 new Quilts Japan books! So excited to try and learn from the book. 




4. WATCHING

I'm watching this Korean Drama True Beauty on VIKI. Finally, one drama that I can enjoy watching and maybe rewatch again later. It's about the insecurity of being a teenager, the mental struggle they have to go through for being ugly, bullied by friends, etc. The story looks good so far. The actors are doing really well, esp Moon Ga-Young. Having 2 teenagers myself, I found watching coming-of-age drama helps me to know what the millennials are going through. Grew up in an all-girls family and now raising 2 boys, sometimes I feel clueless. I guess, we as parents, never stop learning. 



That's all from the last week or so. Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Sewing and have a lovely weekend!
