My Quilt Pattern

After completed making my third eco bag, I move on to qulit making.
Which i always wanted to!

Yea, always wanted to, but forever not starting.

No more procasinating JONI.
Time for some serious stuff. HAHAHA.

TREE will be the main design for my quilt.
I love trees, there are so much things we could learn from them.
Such as their determination to grow, their big hearts for giving habitats to animal and their contribution to mother earth and mankind.

I also wanted the quilt to portray trees in the different seasons.

During the spring time, the birds return and are chipping away.
During the summer time, the squirrels and the hare are running about.
During the autumn time, the leafs are changing color.
During the winter time, the snow is falling.

This will be the prototype of how my tree looks like.

Sorry for the color, cause i was working in my living room, where my living room uses warm lighting.

Selecting fat quarter for quilt

I have finally selected the fat quarter to work on. Next is working on the template of the quilt :)

My Eco craft bags

Finished my third eco craft bag, which is also my top favorite bag.
I love the both the size and the design.

Designed by 菊川靜香
I can place my phone, wallet, keys and my umbrella in it :D
The first day I bought it out, people commented that my bag looks cute.
Hahaha, after hearing their comments, everything is worth it!
I also got quite a number of good comments from my facebook fan page.

Here are my previous 2 eco crafts project:

Designed by 荒関まゆみ
This is an awesome bag!
For the pass 3 months, wherever i go, I will use this bag.
I can place whatever things i want into the bag. The size of it is fantastic.
Like bringing my iPad out for a coffee break.
Like a day shopping trip, where i will stop spending once my basket is full.
It really happens! I will go to the craft shop and i will tell the lady i can only buy "my basket" amount of stuff.

Is a good method, at least it works for me! Like normally i will pick maybe 10 fat quarter, after having this constraint, i can only buy 6 fat quarter. Which makes my decision better. :D

Designed by 佐藤千夏 (Chika)
Love this picnic basket.
Thou i have yet to bring it out for a picnic session, but it is currently used to hold my fat quarter for my next quilting project.

I can't imagine Lisa is actually replying to me!

Lisa Lam, the writer for "The Bag Making Bible" and, is actually replying to me!
I am so happy when I see her reply.
I begin to love this social network even more!

I can't imagine if one day Amy Bulter, one of my favorite fabric designer, is going reply me.
Hahaha. Kind of looking forward to that!

Most probably Lisa didn't know that her one reply gives someone such a crazy amount of happiness!

Going to weave an eco friendly pot for my plants today.
Stay tune to tml update!

Wire birdcage

Hand twisted a birdcage yesterday while watching movie, "Avatar" on star movie. Star movie even repeated the movie twice. Back to back, so i ended up watching it 2 times. Hahahaha. Most of the time i wasn't even looking or listen to the movie. *Is a nice show! I watched it in 3D in the cinema.

How is the birdcage?
It wasn't really that difficult to make. There are no measurements to follow, just cut the wire to your favor height and start twisting it. What I love most was the birdie on the top! Self designed it. I wanted to give it a heart shaped wing, but i think this curvy heart shaped suit the wire sculpture best.

I am lov'in it! another new decor for my garden!
