Chat over Coffee :)

Hello everybody!

Lets chat!

I have been super occupied with a TON of things and have missed this, terribly!!! So, today, I thought, I’d sit down and have a cup of un-rushed coffee and chat with you!!

I decided to use my crappy laptop camera for this image, simply because its a slow day for me today….. The coffee came out , looking like tea! Which means, I love all you guys who love tea πŸ˜‰

SO! I have been working on a couple of projects recently and have been loving, every bit, of this busy schedule, I’ve had for the past month or so! Among the many things, I’m looking forward to, is the KTAA (Kuwait Textile Arts Association) Fall Bazaar!

That’s because I’m participating as a vendor this year!!! YEEYYYY!!! I am super exited about being a part of it this year because I really wanted to be a vendor last year but had to step back, due to travelling and ill health 😦

BUT YEYYYYYY!!!! *clap*jump*clapclap*Β I had completely forgotten about their Fall Bazaar and only very recently, decided I’d signup for the vendorship πŸ˜›

So I have been trying to make stuff – knit, crochet, sew, quilt- so I have something to show for the Bazaar. I am happy with how things turned out, especially because I was struggling to complete some of the knitting projects, for a while and I got “RE-introduced”, to crocheting! Which by the way, is a topic for another day. Just know, that I learnt crocheting, very early on, as a kid and had a complete memory loss about it in my adult years!! Its weird really, but it happens ..trust me!

Well, when I realized, that I was much quicker crocheting, I ripped up a couple knit projects and re did them, in crochet. I was very proud of myself, its amazing how much the brain can remember. Slowly but surely, I’m working on newer crochet techniques and getting better. *thumbs up*

I have been more active on Instagram lately, just for the ease of access really. I used to hate using Instagram, but I have turned a new leaf. Facebook on the other hand, has been ignored a good couple years. I have no clue what my account looks like and have no interest whatsoever! Although, I do have a feeling I might have to fall back in love with it…. missing out on all the funny videos πŸ˜›

I have some really exciting news for you guys! I have been working on this, for almost two years and I think I will take a leap of faith and jump right into this one! Its definitely a new one for me, no bake shop this time around, I have other plans for that baby. I have decided, to take a plunge into the well of creativity and I’m really looking forward to when I can finally share it on here!

Just know, there’s some stuff getting ready, lots of shipping ….oh and did I mention prettiness???

Enough said!!!!

Loved this chat!! What have you been up to???

 

 

Crazy Quilt Mania Begins!! ;)

Hey All!!

Its OCTOBER!! Yeyyy!! I have always loved this month!! Not just because its my birthday month (*silent clapping*), BUT also because its just soooo beautiful this time of the year! Its like, everything starts falling into place. The air changes and so does the feel …. you get the picture πŸ™‚

For me, this is also a sign, that I need to get into my busy bee mode and finish all the projects, I’d hoped to complete this year! Not just sewing, but anything and everything, that I have been delaying- for no good reason πŸ˜›

Crazy quilting is something I absolutely adore!!!!! I’m a self taught quilter and crazy quilting was the way I started my quilting adventure. Infact, I didn’t even know I was “Crazy Quilting”, until much later.

This here, is one of the very first pieces I made.. Its nothing extravagant, but it sure took a lot of work πŸ™‚

DSC_0772Β It soothes me πŸ™‚ Reminds me of a -very VERY long time ago- day, when I was playing with my toys and my grandmother sat nearby, sewing away… … The patterns remind me of my sweet mommy, who would come check my size, for a pretty frock she’d be making for me, while I sat oblivious to the joys of sewing.

When I tell my mom, that I made a quilt or I sewed a dress, she laughs it off, simply because its impossible, for her to believe, I can do that. “You don’t know how to sew!!”- is what she says. Thanks to whats app, she has seen, most of my creations and is still amazed, that I’m the one behind, some such babies πŸ™‚ Including the one giant quilt, I gifted her this year, for her birthday!

Well…. I guess somethings don’t need any training…. you just pick them up… in the winds of October πŸ˜‰
