Last Saturday, I had recieved the Amure Clover Crochet hooks set ordered from Kyoto, Japan. She is my FB friend who is staying there.I am so happy as it is really beautiful, colourful and very comfortable to use.I am sure those crocheters out there will like it too.The price is quite 'nice' too! Anyway, not the price that matter but the satisfaction of buying something useful for myself. Indeed, we feel stress free.I have continued my unfimished projects and soon I can wear it.After this, I am going to order another crochet book.So I am the one who never like to just doing nothing..I will always occupy my time by sewing, crocheting, doing thread embroidery or beads embroidery.I am not sure whether all people are like me..some of them said" I am not interested', 'it is difficult', 'I only like to buy'..I hope it is not YOU.

Last Friday 14th March, again I went to 'Tudung' sewing class.Three of us learnt to sew 'tudung' while one young lady prefered to sew 'kurung'(our Malay traditional costume).We sew two layered type with little gathers and a brooch in front. It was actually fun to meet another new lady who is working at a public library..it was quite late to finish as my machine did not perform well. I was really mad at the broken needles (three times hu hu!), also the jumping stitches and the broken thread!Then another bad experience for the day as it was very heavy, the machine fell down from the hands! With all the very valid reason,I promise to myself I need to return the machine to the dealer and exchange to a new one.Today,I went to the shop and get a new BROTHER brand sewing machine.At first , I thought of buying the high speed JUKI brand but knowing me, I was phobia with the too fast speed as it is quite difficult to control the suppose to be straight sewing line..while I ended with crooked piece. Oh no! finally I found a reasonable one cost RM800. It was not so heavy as the first. OK at least I am very happy to give myself a present.Don't you want to pamper yourself too?

Today 7th March, my friend Robiah and I went to learn to sew headcover or 'tudung' at Wakaf Che Yeh (about an hour journey from our hometown).Our hubby also followed ud but they were free to go anywhere while waiting for us to complete our course.This time I chose to sew a tudung with a ring in front to tie the ribbon in front. It took about 4 hours to finish. We started by drawing the pattern followed by cutting the material and lastly sew it. The most difficult part was to sew the awning.Goshh! I was so terrified by the Juki Industry sewing machine as it was so fast and needed my every confidence to use it. So I opted to bring my own portable sewing machine(one of my collections too).I chose the light brown material combined with brownish yellow to make the layers.So I felt so satisfied that I could make my own tudung with my own choice of colours as I prefered the soft pastel colours than the fierce colour- blocking.I have my self satisfaction to sew my own tudung.Next week, I will ask more friends to join me to attend the class..nothing harm to learn new things and also to get more new friends. Last time I got to know a businesswoman named Meg Nah and also a young lady named Shikin( still young like my daughter).I instead encouraged her to be involved in sewing world and also to pursue business in selling tudung!and now they become my FB friend too.They also believed in self satisfaction in sewing.happy sewing to the sewing lovers.
