And all these little things

Your hand fits in mine like it's made just for me
But bear this in mind, it was meant to be
And I'm joining up the dots with the freckles on your cheeks
And it all makes sense to me...

I know you've never loved the crinkles by your eyes when you smile
You've never loved your stomach or your thighs, the dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine
But I'll love them endlessly

I won't let these little things,
Slip out of my mouth
But if I do...It's you....Oh it's you...They add up to
I'm in love with you...

And all these little things

Fabric Shopping in Seoul

I will not bore you with my stories, let the pics do the talking ...

yup that's me, I went to Korea with my friend, Mita. And the above pic was on my way to Happy Quilt in Dongdaemun market, Seoul- Korea. And look what greeted me once I came out from the lift <3

luckily I just had a little time before the shop closed otherwise I'd have blown my cards and would not know how to carry them back to India :P

My loot
look at these beauty
pre cuts
Happy Quilt 
many shops selling Japanese quilt kits and fabrics

More of Dongdaemun Market is here  and if you happen to have lots of time you can visit Happy Quilt in Jije (which I didn't ). 

and that's me again, tired and hungry (I was having kimbab :P )  but extremely Happy with my bundles of joy. 

Well, Bo Derek is right when she said

"Whoever said money can't buy happiness
simply didn't know where to go shopping." 

Until then,

Happy Quilting

{ Show off Saturday} Imperfection

I had so much fun doing this scrappy log cabin blocks. 
I just grabbed one piece at a time and started QAYG it.

 I didn't even bother to see if the color match. 

I added black sashing to bring out brightness of Indian cotton fabrics.

Don't you love all those brightly contrast colors? 

Here, I learned the beauty of imperfection.

couldn't agree more, Marilyn ^_^

Linky party:  Show Off Saturday  

Indian fabrics available HERE

Until then,

Happy Sewing

{Sewing Room} New Arrangement

Finally my sewing room arrangement is almost complete. The wall still bare though. I still could not make up my mind where to display the quilts and stuff I made.
Let's take a tour .....
My two fabric cabinets and a trunk are placed near the entrance. I got the trunk cover made when I change the curtain. The trunk mostly I used as a "transit island" for fabrics which got sold in my Etsy shop before I put it back it its respective place ;)

And that's my sewing table with  my HV machine which I use mostly for quilting and wallet making. 

below is my cutting area and also where I put my Bernette. I use the Bernette for piecing and general sewing. In the corner is a rack which I use to store my WIP and UFO bins, it's hidden behind that quilt top (my sort of temporary display wall ^_^ )

Below the table are bins to store scraps and small batting, mostly left over batting from previous projects. 

On the left side of the room I put the smaller cabinets. 
I love the vintage sideboard which my MIL gave me, it needs a little bit of repair work but it can wait. And the there's my ironing table cum fabric storage with my mini DIY design wall and next to that was my babies' changing table/cupboard. I keep printer, the magazines/books I am currently reading and my paper/quilt ruler storage.

Here's the storage. I really really love this! again this is from my MIL. She said she didn't like it and I am happily adopted it. <3 

There's still lots of work  to do in this room, but so far I am quite happy. I still need to think where to put my mini design wall. I made a bigger one which is portable and I can just hang it in my curtain rod.

I want to display a some of my work but don't want to make the room too crowded. 

Now at least I can start doing some work with peace of mind :D

I think, this advice is really true, at least for me ^0^

Until then,

Happy Sewing

Show Off Saturday : Little Pouches and Recycle boxes

I have finished these few things after I came back from the holiday.  I bought quilted purse pattern from etsy and love it. 

This is for my SIL

and I keep this for my self ^^

And I was in a recycling mood, so covered these mug boxes with fabrics and reuse the panda plastic bottle which we got from Singapore Zoo to keep my wooden buttons.

I used the boxes to keep my binding strips. 

I especially like the pin cushion. I got the idea from pinterest about re using the cello tape tube as pin cushion

Isn't that cute?
