LIFE in a World of Chaos

Project #3

So my longtime friend is finally having a baby girl. And what fabulous way to welcome her than making a quilt blanket. So I gathered all my materials and took out the bundle of fabrics I’ve been waiting to sew for a reason.

After finding out his soon baby girl I wanted to make this blanket with her name on it. However, that thought failed since I have no experience in sewing characters. So I just left it as the regular quilt blanket.

This is what I came up with. I truly couldn’t ask for better hues of pink, blues and green than this. I purchased this bundle at our local store and just now found a use for it.

I hope this is big enough for his little girl Adeline 😀 I love that name.

Thank you everyone for stopping by. Have a happy quilting!

Hello New Year 2017

Hello Everyone!!

Gosh it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything in here. Honestly, i’ve been very busy with things living here in the countryside. There’s so much to explore even until today. Since our move here about four months ago, we really haven’t ventured the east.. west.. south and north just yet.

Due to this harsh weather it kept us at close proximity in venturing the unknown vast space out there. We are having such a wonderful time experiencing this great countryside living. The air is fresh & crisp every morning til noon…then theres the drop of temperature in the late afternoon. I truly wouldn’t like to be caught driving at night since there’s no street lights on the road. The road really plays tricks on you when your car’s headlight is the only source of illumination on the road. I feel like i’m in the film “Riddick” when they were walking in the darkness & their only source of light were those tubelights from some battery pack-

Needless to say, I will be posting some of my quilting projects soon.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a fabulous day and New Years everyone!!

A special birdy-day

So before we celebrate xmas holidays we first have a birdy-day for my now eleven years old Jupinxter. So far she’s been having great anxiety of what she wants to do for her big-day.  Finally, she thought of just a low key family dinner. So Red Lobster we all went and enjoyed our time. 

The timing was right when we arrived. There was no waiting to be seated. Of course we had a closed quartered area of 4 groups of party tables and 2 booths. We had it good. The family we sat next to were preparing to leave, so we were left the only table for about 10 minutes until elderly couples were seated behind us in one of the small booths. 

We all had fun and our meal was delicious, as always.

Her birdy meal- Ultimate Feast Platter. She did finish it all as well 😀

My Admirals Feast, truly scrumptious.

Her one favourite treat, lava cake & ice cream 😀🌟

With aunti Rhea and her Shrimp Feast

Brother’s favourite popcorn shrimp meal

It truly was a great day and dinner with family. A fabulous surprise for the birthday girl to have dad home in time for her birthday dinner and holiday. Leaving again day after xmas.

We’ve managed this few months just ok. Today truly was splendid and kids had no idea dad was home for 5 days in time for the holiday. Though he was still away, it was a great surprise. 

Not only that, the couple behind us secretly paid $50 of our bill. It truly was unexpected and we were so elated. Grams took our group photo and they were so gracious to have done such wonderful deed and gift to my Jupinxter. They sang happy birthday song with us and greeted & wished her a fun-filled birthday! I truly wished we took down their names so we can keep in touch with these lovely couple 😀

Happy Birthday Jupinxter!

And it’s complete…

          A few years ago I purchased this economical sewing machine. Sadly, I never got to use it. Though it took a trip with me to California and there it stayed and found it’s new home in my dad’s house. 

          That was five years ago. Luckily, my husband bought me an upgrade of that sewing machine and I am truly delighted to find time and make the coolest things. 

          We moved to our new place… far away from the chaos and the toxic people that was weighing us down. I am delighted to say, I have a lot of time to work on projects these days and I am so happy I was able to complete them in a whiff-

These are some of the textiles I bought the other  day and I cannot wait to purchase more.

Here are some finished pillow cases. I truly enjoyed making these. i couldn’t be more happier.

Thank you to this friendly machine update my husband bought me for my birthday- I am truly digging this.

          So today I am going to make more of these lovely pillow cases-

How about you folks? Any projects  in the making this weekend?

…and they say it’s just a trim

Another late upload.

          Since I am very allergic to dander and anything with hair, we have agreed to trim my cousin’s cat’s hair. Bootsie we call him. He is this gray and white puffy tabby. He is actually cute and keeps to himself. Unfortunately, his cuteness doesn’t help with my allergy. So, we had all decided to give him a quick trim. The Man said “I will give him a trim if you will hold him down”. I know he’s lost his cents sometime ago but his quarters? Oh boy. 

          Anyway, I asked my cousin if she can hold Bootsie whil the Man clips his hair and I take all the fun photos. So here is Bootsie.

He’s all lookin at me not really sure if he likes the idea of being ganged up on.

Look at all that hair. It’s like buzzin’ a sheep off its wool.

Almost done. Had to give him a break-

And he’s all so lovey & cuddly. He looks sooo cute without that hair on him.

Now we all can enjoy his company and presence without sneezing all day and night long.

Thank you everyone for stopping by. Share some photos of your pets.
