The 2nd block for this week. #happyflowerblock41 Super scrappy. I used all the small scraps for this block. Not deliberate chosen. My girl helped drawing the templates and cutting the fabrics out! It was fun rearranging them to our liking. A little wonky in this picture since I haven't quite iron out. But still, i love this happy colourful block!πŸ˜˜πŸ’–πŸ™ŒπŸ» #happyflowerquilts #atsukomatsuyama #sunsunsampler #happyflowerqal @zakkaworkshop @ohhowsweetco @prettybyhand

Two new #happyflowerqal blocks for this week! I enjoyed making this pretty flower because it's straightforward and well, only three fabrics to choose!πŸ˜† This is gonna be a fast week. I have a few things set to accomplish and it makes me happy thinking about it. See the happy word on the flower!😍 #happyflowerblock62 #sunsunsampler #atsukomatsuyama #happyflowerquilts #zakkaworkshop

Just so hard to take a good pic with this squiggly girl. She said it's not easy to stand still without wobbling.πŸ˜‚ A lot of good laughter and cuddles today. Happy Sunday!πŸ’–πŸ˜š #madeforbabyblogtour #madeforbabybook #cafenohut

Are you feeling the same way? What moms like us do every single day. Happy Fri-yay!πŸ’– Hopefully no floods in Bangkok today.πŸ˜…

I think I'm the silliest nutcase here. I do make mistakes too and I'm not sure if it's a happy or frustrating thing. #happyflowerqalblock21 templates are correct. The octagon orientation was the thing I did wrong. 2nd pic shows the correct position with the short ends on top bottom left right.πŸ‘ŒπŸ» Today the day was bright so I tried playing with the templates again rotating round and round. Alas! I realised this.... argh!😭😭😭 I actually confused myself!πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ» Moral of this story: do not sew after 12:30am at night when your eyes are closing.πŸ˜”

So this is the another block for this week because I didn't sew one.😐 Pink again!πŸ’– #zakkaworkshop #happyflowerqalblock96 #happyflowerqal #happyflowerquilts

Phew! I found the block!!😝 Oh this tricky one! Left it in the book that night after trying to figure out what was wrong with the templates. Have you tried handsewing this #happyflowerqalblock21? I had a tough time trying to match the triangle templates. So I did it my way by not matching them at all. And trimmed down the centre square to adjust to the octagons. The 3rd picture shows the block before squaring up the sides. It looks wonky with the protuding triangles. If you are not comfy with adjusting the templates, skip this block and do others first. And Y seams aplenty here! It's not an easy block seriously. But anyway, i love that I finally used pink for the background! And my favourite fussy cut fabrics!😍 #happyflowerqal #happyflowerquilts #sunsunsampler #atsukomatsuyama #zakkaworkshop #handsewing #ζ‰‹θŠΈ #松山敦子

Staring at this messy pile now and trying to do a mental check. Where did I stash the two blocks for this week?😒 Can't find them anywhere did I dump them in the bin by accident?😭 This week has been non stop swim galas, PTG meets, music classes... crazy rush and traffic jams and surviving floods after big time rains. I need a break seriously. Or maybe a long morning nap.😞

A few months back I took the courage to join a swap called #tinyfloralsanonymousswap. I'm glad I did! These are what I made for my partner. A zipper porch and handsewn needlebook. And adding a couple of sweet thoughts for her. Hope she likes them!πŸ’• @coleandtaffy @cpeicheff @lilmaisiedaisy πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» #tinyfloralsanonymous #libertyfabric #lecien_fabrics #yuwa

Trying not to look goofy taking a selfie.😝 This is me after a satisfying rice breakfast! Okay, I eat rice every meal everyday. It's just so ridiculous. I'm always #missingmarket and reading others #fivethingsaboutme. If one day there's a chance to go to #quiltmarket...😍😍😍 Now five facts. 1: I'm not a Thai but Singaporean. I've been living in Bangkok for two years and loving my life everyday. Nice food, nice people, what more can I ask for?πŸ™ŒπŸ» 2: Self taught handsewing while looking after babies because it was bored just taking care of babies.πŸ˜… 3: Loves green. Anything green from trees to grass to algae. But bed linen has to be white or off white.🀣 4: Give me all the flowers and I'll be the happiest.😍 5: My kids call me a tiger Mom coz I'm super strict with respect and manners. Well, it's serious case here. Don't step on my tail and I'll be the nicest Mom on earth.πŸ’–Hop over to @gogokim @thesewingloft to join in the fun!πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» And hello new followers!!😘😘😘
