Bernina Club Workshop - Oct 2011

Yesterday, I had a great time attending a free workshop organised for Bernina owners by Bernina Malaysia.  There were six of us :

learning to make this book cover, front :

Inside :

Fast and simple, but the project teaches us different ways to make the best use of our machines.  Imagine after owning my Aurora 440 for a few years, now only I discover some functions that I never knew my machine has,  LOL!  Nevertheless, I've enjoyed the day very much, had great fun,  learning and chatting with a group of crafters.  Thanks to Agnes Chan, our teacher at Bernina and to Kelvin Chan of  Bernina, Malaysia.

Crochet fever

Was caught by a high crochet fever lately. Brought a lot of books, both English and Chinese (even when I can't read them) ones! Also brought lots of Minlon yarns (when I keep telling myself that I'm on a stash diet!) and have taught myself to crochet a few small items :

Two beanies for my son, a scarf and a hat for myself.  Had a hard, unpicking many times before I could get it  done. Not sure where did I go wrong even when I've  properly follow the pattern on the book.........could be the yarn I used!  Wish I have a 'Si-Fu' to teach me :(

Quilt with Joy

I have started a quilt back in 2006.  It was meant for my elder son but unfortunately have left it unfinished all these years!  Recently, with my best friend, Amara's encouragement, I've finally took it out of my UFO (unfinished object) basket and started working hard on it! And this time, I've manage to complete it at last !!!

I somehow, had lots of mood this time and manage to complete it with 'umph'! And the best thing is, my elder son is coming home to use it! Wow, I'm so happy and felt very satisfying job done!
