Handmade Happiness #3 - Batching or Multitasking?

Hello and welcome to Handmade Happiness!



Thank you for linking up in my first link up last week. So lovely to see your creations.

Last week I didn't complete much - sewing wise. However I did a couple of batching work! Yay!
I posted in my Instagram Story a few days ago whether you prefer Batching or Multitasking. Surprisingly the result shown 50% for each. As a woman and a mom, I think we are born multitasker. However when it comes to doing your home-based business, I read that batching is more appropriate. Batching is doing one task at a certain time and only concentrate on the work at hand, while multitasking is keep switching between two or 3 works at a time. Read the complete article HERE.

Passport Covers

For me, while sewing, I keep checking my phone for email or messages and sometimes get caught up in the conversations while my machine is on. Or I suddenly want to post updates in my Instagram and ended up scrolling endlessly. It is very distracting.

A gift for a friend -Owl Wallet

Since I read the article, I tried to practice it. For someone who always multitasking all the time, it is tough job! But I did it. I completed many wallets, prepping a couple of works that  need to be done, getting all the winter clothes sort out. I also took photos for my shops, finished the owl wallet above for Namrata which is long due!! Thanks for your patience ^__^. I'm still working out my schedule. I hope I will be more organized in the future.

Now, let's see our MVP (most visited post) last week's post:

Sowmya from Prime Needlers on Facebook made this pretty green and blue kaleidoscope quilt. A delightful baby quilt. She's also currently working on her quilt for the First India Quilt Festival next January 2019.


Neepa made this oh so pretty dress. All little girls love pretty dresses, especially if it's pink, right? Check out her pretty dresses on her Facebook Page A quaint stitch. 

Diptee from Diptea (don't you love that?!)  made this girly quilt. I really love the centre panel of this quilt. This quilt will surely make a girl happy! you can also read her blog HERE.

Saturday Recap

Hello,

Today morning I took this photo of my makeshift photo booth. The morning light was just perfect today! Perfect day for photo session.


I found these block in my UFO bag and did a prep work. Now they are ready to quilt! I think diagonal grid line quilting will look good, what do you think?


Another prep work was cutting these batting for pillow covers. So excited for this project. It's simple wholecloth quilt kind of cushion like this one, which I think will be perfect for your summer decor. I will finish the quilting of all the front panels then will finish the cushion covers.


I finished quilting 4 tops for now. I  love this green chevron so I thought just following the gap in between each chevron print and loved how it turned out. The wonky lines turned out really good. I will take a better picture next time!


One happy mail! yes the Hex n More ruler from Jaybird Quilts. I wanted to make something like this and my friend, mbak Belly, suggested I get the ruler. 


and of course I had to try it! Jewel Hexagon - one block at a time!!


And this Nautical theme wallet is what I am currently working on. It's a single travel wallet! So excited to work with new fabric!! I hope to complete the orders before mid of next week


That's all for my Saturday Recap! Most are still in a WIP stage which hopefully I will be able to complete some of them tomorrow. The boys are going for another round of Avengers movie so I have a few hours undisturbed sewing time! 

What about you? What are you working on this week? If you completed something or have a new listing in your shop, do LINK UP in my new link up party Handmade Happiness!

Until next time!



Handmade Happiness 02 - New Link Up Party

**************

Let me start with what I've been up to the last couple of days. I'am excited with my new passport cover which I shared last week and on Sunday, when the boys were busy watching IPL (that's an Indian cricket league), I have plenty of time to play.

Owl Passport Covers
I found the Christmas owl in while I was sorting out my scrap boxes and thought of making a mug rug or maybe another cushion covers. The prints are quite big and of different sizes. So I decided to make the wallet instead.

Passport Covers

The previous day, I made those 3 wallets with fun prints - sewing notions, newspaper print and Eiffel Tower.  Sorting out fabrics always a great motivator for me. Well, it also brings surprises to see fabrics which I forgot I have LOL. Those wallets will be up in my Etsy and Webshop as soon as I finished editing them.

On a quilting side, I made the 4th block of the scrappy log cabin project I started a few weeks ago. This time, I make a little prep work (yay for me!). Cutting the green and black & white scraps into 1.5" wide strips before I started sewing. I need to really make an effort to do prep work!

Work in Progress


I love how they look happy together :D



That's all from me, now it's your turn to link up.

The Link up will run from Tuesday to Sunday Evening (India Standard Time ) so you will have a plenty of time to share you craft of the week.
