Tri-shutter Christmas Card

 Not just any Christmas card but one using the tri-shutter folding technique :)

See what I mean? :)

 I have been intrigued by this fold for so long but never have had the opportunity to try it out. I knew it wasn't one of those projects that I could just slip in between marking books and doing the laundry!

 I definitely did the right thing to wait till the school holidays... took me half a day to get this done.

But so worth the while :) LOVE IT!!!

Card making is addictive

 A friend needed some thank you cards and asked me if I could help out. Hence, these...

My first attempt focused on a teabag-folded medallion.

For the second, I thought I would test out my latest puncher... love it.

After 2 landscape designs, I just had to try a portrait.

I think card making is addictive... I couldn't stop at no.3

Ran out of card stock after that :)

MW Craft Nite

I was invited to do a craft lesson with the MW two Mondays ago. As they were going to be giving away cupcakes as door gifts on their Ladies Nite later next month, I browsed through the Net for ideas to decorate the plain little cupcakes. 

So, after much thought, I decided on this little origami flower.

Originally made as part of a unit of kudusama or Japanese decorative flower balls, I have adapted them onto wooden skewers. The leaves are also origami-based.

Added a bible verse tag and that was it. Hope the ladies will enjoy the craft.

Punches from Daiso

 Bought 2 Daiso border punches when I went out to Penang.

 Isn't this border design sweet & pretty? (Ignore the loud colour I chose)

 No regrets picking up this delicate design either 

Sigh... now itching to do something with these :)

Windmill Tote

 Can't remember how I arrived at this block...

It has the windmill effect, thus it became the windmill tote.

 The back is a solid brown

Christmas is coming

With Christmas round the corner, I've been busy sewing cushion covers of the holiday theme. I just love the festive colours of red, green, white and gold. I've 3 sets done. The first is a commission from a friend for a pair of 14" x 14" cushions.

The next 2 sets are for 16" x 16" cushions. This one right below is from lovingly pieced back scraps! Can't afford to waste Christmas fabrics... they not only cost a bomb but are difficult to find at the local fabric stores. There was not a single bale in sight this year :(

This set was a UFO from last year. I had done the tops but just had no time to sew up the covers. A blessing in disguise since I needed these quickly as I will be visiting friends when I go down to KL later.

Yup! That's about it since the school holidays started. Of course, there were the bags... and 2 unfinished quilts which I have yet to post :) Hope to do that when I come back from my hols. Meanwhile, I'm off to prepare for my 2-week well-deserved break :) :) :)
