Merry Christmas to me :)

Today, I finally bought my very first sewing machine :).  It's so cool...never knew that a sewing machine could do so many nifty things hahahahahaha :). First I went to Toko Tiga Street only to be disappointed by this "brother" store owner...this man asked me to buy TWO machines!! He didn't even understand what I was trying to buy and won't explain a thing!!! So, in the end I went to a shop at Pangeran Jayakarta...I called the shop before (found it from yellow pages) and the owner was nice enough to explain many things over the phone, so I'm very happy to finally bought this Tajima machine at PD. Aneka Mesin Jahit, give Tony (the owner) a try if you're looking for a sewing machine (021-6298525/6), though he doesn't sell high end sewing machine, he has just the right one for a newbie like me - now I need a bigger table to cater my new hobby :D

O, by the way...the 2 new quilts I didn't like before turned out to be quite good after I washed them :) hahahahaha and the workmanship is actually good too yay yay...

quit quilt quilt :)

I was so ecstatic when I finally got my white on white quilt I ordered from Cotonnier.  It is a well-made quilt with soft material and most importantly, the filling isn't too thick and therefore just the right temperature for me :).  I wish the same could be said about the quilts I ordered somewhere else :(. I was so disappointed when I received my NOT ONE but TWO disappointing quilts :( one is a double wedding ring design but the filling is quite thick plus the material is not very comfy and since the material isn't wide enough to accommodate a King size, they joined 2 materials and you could see the joint right in the middle of the quilt and the second one is a nine patch, the colors are supposed to be pastels, not BRIGHT...ow well...and I've paid about the same price as the luxurious quilt I got from Cotonnier :( very disappointed.  But at least the wedding ring is white, I could reason myself with white :) and hopefully after I've washed it, it wouldn't be as bad.  I've finally finished the TOP of my patchwork sampler quilt hahahahaha after much struggle, I've finished 1/2 I have to quilt lazy...:(

early christmas presents

Well, it's not exactly christmas presents :) but close enough for me :) my sister, Stephanie, is back for holiday and I got SO MANY things I bought online for her to bring home (almost 1 whole suitcase - no kidding!) :D...I bought lots of quilting and sewing books and some are extremely good, also bought this babycomp for basal body temperature reading, some discounted Banana Republic's shirts and pants for Francis, some cute bibs from DaBib I saw while I was reading blogs, as well as the kimono baby outfit for Emma and the biggest thing I asked her to bring is Emma's new bugaboo bee stroller.  I LOVE IT :) it's compact, cute and striking :)

a new bumper for em

Finally, the bed bumper was done and laundered and ready to be use :) well, actually Emma has been using it for a couple of weeks but I was just too busy to put on a posting. I'm so happy with this red riding hood bumper from Cotonnier, it's thick enough for a very active Emma to hit on :) hihihii, I am no longer worried how she moves about her bed :) and today, Cotonnier called me to let me know that my white on white quilt is ready to be picked up...yay happy :) and just called my other quilts which I ordered from Bu Nissa and she said, the single sized is ready and my double wedding ring pattern should be done next week..yay yay :) will post some pictures :)

your amazing smile

As I was crying and you were in my arms, you would smile at me and with your little hand, you'd reach up to my face an caress it with your little if saying "mommy, don't be sad, I love you" and my sadness would disappear because nothing matters most in this world but your beautiful smile :)...I love u, Em

I was reading my daily dose of blog when I stumbled upon this great finding!! A how to make your own sling :), yes, the one exactly like my cool and you can do it with your own fabric :) and looks great too!!!! Well, I was going to give the measurement of my bubzilla on one of my postings, so that others could sew their very own sling...but I thought it would be a little troublesome here goes! i think it's great! Might make one for Francis so that he could carry Em in a sling too :).  Here's a direct link to the how to page
