Last week I went for a holiday trip with Honey Vacation package to Turkey.Of course it was certainly an enjoyable and very informative by visiting the famous ancient places.. The Troy and 2 more historical building remnants..it is great to see such places since Alexander The Great era. Ok as my interest is in embroidery..I went to the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul..wow it fascinates me with all the handmade embroidery items such as tablecloth, table runner, cushion cover etc. So I bought a handmade embroidered table runner and a pair of cushion cover. The price is quite expensive but I still have to buy it..I am sure I could not sleep or felt miserable for not buying..expensive but satisfaction is the most important. I understand why it is expensive as I am also involved in doing handmade sewing embroidery..that is why the buyer should understand why the price is high for handmade..it needs patience !

Just in the mood of gardening, I again began to repot my orchids, plant roses and happy to see them blooming..after gardening, I took my sewing kits and ready to continue my embroidery activity.. It seemed easy as I just bought 3 new books from Kinokuniya last two weeks. I went to the Japanese book section and I was so engrossed at the corner choosing the most interesting three..only three books as the price is really high..only 3 books cost around rm300. I chose 4 books at last ..two embroidery books, one crochet book and finally a new kind of patchwork sewing 3D flowers. Anyway it is really unique and I hope I can try to do it soon..I think it is worth buying though it is quite costy..maybe for some people they said it is better to buy clothes, shoes or handbags..but for me books mean everything..after that I was so satisfied that I ended up buying nothing for me except for the books. I will keep on adding embroidery and sewing books collection. Last January I have bought a sewing book too at the Big Bad Wolf sale at The Mines..books means satisfaction.

My second project after hibernating for so long is to make very simple aprons and potholders as I believe both are very important to us which we use everyday..I googled for some unique patterns..yes.. I found some beautiful patterns..thanks to our modern technology..when I told my friend that I am going to do aprons she ordered two already..ha..ha selling aprons and pot holders..easy money instead.You can put ribbons, button or laces to make them sweet.So happy sewing potholders and aprons and give your mum or friends as a birthday gift..I am pretty sure they will remember you everyday as they use it often right.

These few days i began to start my project of mending and altering..first, i started by altering my kurung which is a bit smaller..not sure whether the material is shrinking or my weight is increasing..yes, the sewing machine which i have abandoned for so long,i started to use it again..of course i am so happy as i can wear my kurung comfortably as i mend it bigger.On the next day, my daughter began to open her wardrobe and asked me to alter her blouses too, to make darts,to make the blouse
