I’m Back With A New Machine!!

Have been away..back to my hometown for a long deserving break. Ate and ate and ate!!! There’s no place like home..where you were born *o*

And I came back with a new sewing machine!
It has….

50 built-in stitches
2 one-step buttonholes
6 direct-stitch button selection
Push-button stitch selection - select your stitch easily with buttons, not dials
Auto tension - ensures stable stitch quality for every type of fabric
Vivid screen: LED - Clear, crisp display of stitch selection

Not comparable to what most of you may have but it’s a great upgrade to the ‘dinosaur’ that I have been using (*o*) . But the greatest of all..it’s a gift from my sweetheart!

Redwork Embroidery


I found a great site for cute designs for embroidery. I’m in the mood for some stitchery again. Am currently working on some teapot and teacups design for coasters. Will post them when it’s ready ^o^





This cutie dove is from…


…and it’s such a cutie. It offers monthly free design. So remember to bookmark the page.


I guess my little fingers are going to be busy !!!

Nomad Hobo from Hotpatterns

What is a Hobo bag?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The hobo bag is a style of handbag or purse that is typically large and characterized by a crescent shape, a slouchy posture and a long strap designed to wear over the shoulder. Hobo bags are made out of soft, flexible materials and tend to slump, or slouch, when set down.

Here are some hobo bags I'm 'drooling' over !!!





The Burberry Hobo reminds me so much of those gorgeous bags Lappeklipp made.
I particularly love this one and this one.

Meanwhile, I'm content to have those 'out-of-reach' bags sit in my blog for now!!! ^o^

A few days ago, I got a link to this Hobo.The Nomad Hobo from Hotpatterns.It has a square base, a seamed front & back and wide handles. I can't recall the exact date but the free pattern expires Feb 2010. So you better hurry and download the free pdf file before it's gone! I haven't tried the pattern yet, so....

Have A Wonderful Day!
