Can't believe it's been almost a year since I last posted. I don't think I've taken any pretty pictures lately...and to tell you the truth...I'm barely in front of the computer lately. So, what's been happening thus far?? Well, Workshop in A Box happened and that's been running for awhile, though we're in the middle of a break now...since it's almost holiday and errr....I'm gonna have baby number 3 in August.
I've been busy with running a cafe on the first floor of my office as well, called One Fifteenth (1/15) :). I would love to have crafters come by, bringing their WIPs, maybe you guys can have coffee/tea while sewing/knitting/what nots :). To be honest, I haven't been sewing a lot lately...We're waiting for our house to be done where hopefully my crafting studio will bring me new inspirations :p
Oh, and we have a new coffee roastery too called Morph Coffee ... if you're craving good specialty grade coffee freshly roasted each week :). Hopefully I'll be posting something soon...I need to figure out if I could actually blog using Iphone???

This was actually an order from a couple of months ago. My college friend's daughter celebrated her first birthday in Singapore, so she requested these bibs as part of the goody bag. I do hope these bibs become useful :). The party's theme was "The Hungry Caterpillar".

There's a legitimate reason why I've been busy :D...really...not just excuses...I'm opening up a specialty coffee place on the first floor of my office. It's been hectic! It was supposed to be opened the end of last month, but it was still too messy...so it is due to open next week on the 13th of June at 3.30pm....do come by if you're in the area...it's an invitation from me...it's nearby gandaria city at Jl. Gandaria I no 63. There's a quiz going on as well...do participate if you've found the time. I'm just crossing my fingers and hope for the best for next week! I know I still have a lot to do till the BIG day! Wish me luck!

Before I left Bali, a rush order came...it was an order from a friend whose son is turning 7 and he does not want little children's theme goodies. The mom likes my house pouch but asked for an owl applique and since she likes Toriq's applique, the boys got the tools kit :). Happy Birthday, big boy! Wishing you all the best :) and I love how these turned out
It has always been my dream to be married in Bali...alas, it was only a dream :) but my beautiful sister in law got to realize her Balinese wedding and it was a very wonderful event. I'd say she's the most un-bridezilla bride I've known...the most relaxed bride who took it easy when things don't always go as planned...such as the rain that made a grand entrance on her wedding decor!...your brother and I wish you a wonderful and happy marriage. I love weddings with tear-jerker moments and it's always hard to let go of your little sister...who's been the baby in your eyes, but I know they're happy and that's all that matters :)...I have one more sister to go :) and I don't think I'm ready to let go of my youngest one just yet :).
Sewmanics made her wedding favors...they're yellow striped and blue flowers pouches but I didn't take any pictures of them due to the rain. This was the other favor some of the out of towners received. I have to admit we sewed the red pouches wrong! the inside was supposed to be for the outside...so it was actually inside out :'( it's supposed to be plain navy blue canvas...but it was too close to the wedding date and there's nothing we can do...sorry, Pat!

Last week I have just finished an order from Sofie for her son's 5th birthday. She ordered radio, truck, wrench + screw driver, bag, Maryjane shoes and ballerina. For the teachers, she ordered matroyshka pouches...I made some spoon and fork thank you tags and oven mitten tags as well....but I didn't have time to take pictures of those...We do hope Toriq had a blast on his 5th birthday!!!

Remember my post on making butter and buttermilk?? Well, I finished up the rest of the buttermilk last week and made these buttermilk pancakes for the kiddos...I bought the small hello kitty pan from Gandaria City's Metro Dept. Store. It was a bit hard flipping it, but I finally mastered it using an extra small frying pan. Then a few days after the pancakes, I tried making these fried donut holes...I got the recipe from my favorite youtube channel...cookingwithdog :D. I really think it tastes like Indonesia's kue cubit :D...I shouldn't make too many of these, really...
It is finally out! I was sitting on my table and I saw this strage package...and I wasn't expecting any :D...then I got excited....and yes...the Book is out! Seaside Home is finally out! Yay yay yay...I've been waiting for a year for this book :D and I am truly HAPPY....I got 2 copies, since I haven't got the time to order extras and I'm giving away 1 book to my beloved readers :). I love the projects in this book, done by so many talented crafters...and I certainly am proud to be given this chance...so, thank you Susanne, for including me in this.
Now, to win this book, simply leave a comment saying what animal do you like for 2012 and why. Don't forget to leave your email address!!! I'll close this competition on Friday, 23rd of March 2012.

Last minute, Josie ordered penguin pouches for her son's first birthday...sorry, Jos...I didn't have time to make any other things...not even the penguin applique type of pouches....luckily I bought some penguin patterned fabric before...I was planning on making matching pyjamas for me and my man :). I did manage to make a special drawstring for Ethan...a birthday gift from us to the little guy. I hope the party is going to be a blast!

My classic kitchenaid is dead and currently being fixed and I don't know when I'll get it back...and I've been wanting to get a kitchenaid professional, but I don't really have space for it...but I just gotta have it :D...I don't think I can wait till we move to our new house...no can't do. So, yesterday I've decided to make small fried doughnut....I've let it rised over night and popped it in the refrigerator this morning...and it FAILED miserably hahahahhahaha...somebody please give me a pointer!!!

I love this KitchenAid, it does not give me any electric shots (which I got from my US classic KitchenAid, since I had to change the voltage). So, I decided to make my own butter! My sister encouraged me to do so...she said she's been making her own butter and it tastes good! I googled and youtubed and finally decided to do it. I used greenfields' whipping cream and voila! my very own butter! From butter, I couldn't get enough of the mixer and decided to make chocolate coffee loaf using MY OWN BUTTER! A good cuppa chai and a slice of chocco loaf to end my day....yum :)
