Yesterday I went to my daughter's house.Just lazy to drive, my hubby bought bus tickets for four of us.The journey took about five hours. So, what should I do on the bus? Just sleep and see the scenery? How unproductive I am! Before I boarded the bus,I quickly sneaked away to a shop selling crochet yarns and hook.Yes, I have to do something.I started crochetting a handphone case.I combined two colours of cream and maroon. I hope it would turn out nice.I think I have given all my dear friends a tip how to fulfill time beneficially rather than sleep or staring blankly doing nothing.At least you can sell it or make it as a birthday gift and for sure you can make her/him happy thus at the same time tighten the relationship. Moral of the story is do not ever waste your time as TIME IS GOLD.

Today 17th October, 2013, we had a really nice time at Galeri Manik. Zila came down from her hometown,Kuala Krai. She came to teach Ming, a Chinese lady, how to sew bags.She managed to finish two bags within one patient she was. And of course the bags were wonderful, a Hexagon and a Wave bag.I was quite tense up as she began to unload her fantastic imported designer materials and the Venus sewing threads. I had to behave myself because I loved all the nice materials.I bought 3 yards of different designs.There were at least 3 big plastic boxes of such items abd sewing kits or accessories.And not to forget,we also made crochet. Zila was happy to be able to make the crocheted flowers.

Last month I attended a motivation Seminar by one of the famous Malaysian business tycoons, Dr Azizan Osman. His favourite quote is 'if you want to be excellent, you must always equipped yourself by must learn from a mentor in your field of interest'. I think I should go and see my mentor too to learn my beads embroidery (high level), handmade thread embroidery,quilting, patchwork, crochet and many others.S many things that I need to upskill. I know I have the basic knowledge but I think it is not enough, I want to make myself the MENTOR too. Be the best in everything you do. I need to see Zila Kassim to coach me in making handmade bags, learning how to sew machine embroidery(the last time I learned from her was last year,and I never open the machine until today!!).Maybe I have to go to learn advance bead embroidery from sifu Rozita Jaafar or go to Cottage Patch beside Ampang Point to master patchwork.Everything I want to do during this coming school holiday!Not only that but you have to buy many books to get more ideas for your projects.Let us improve ourselves as time waits for no one.

For your coming Hari Raya Aidil Adha,why not you just try to buy or sew plain cotton kurung of various choices of colours. Then, try to choose simple design and sew embroideries. I am sure you will look gorgeos and unique on that special day. If later you want to go to the kenduri or wedding ceremony,certainly you will look different from others.You may choose soft pastel or shocking colours material.You can mix the more expensive DMC thread (6 colours in a skein)and the cheaper Venus embroidery thread. I ask you to mix as to save your budget or be more economical.Wishing you happy raya and happy sewing too.
