These few days/weeks was quite a buzz. Kejap ada kejap tak ada, tadi di sana, kini di sini....gitulah adanya....
However I would like to share my last three days' activities. I attended an event called "Friends Gather" organised by our sewing guru, Corine.
It was a quilting basic, intermediate and advance workshop.
Bag lovers had a chance to hands-on ; buy the kit/s you fancy and learn to sew them with a fee.
There were quilts on display, cotton materials, sewing machine (Bernina brand in particular) & accessories on sale........
the expert sifu (Rosie) - instructor, giving a demo
we learn this in basic class......day 1
machine trapunto in intermediate class.....day 2
OMG, the advance.......i'm as confused as the patterns.
all in THREE days! ha ha ha
and the happy hour/s too......(mestilah happy)
bags & purses on display

and the happy faces
And in the haste (cewah, macam very the sibuk sangat ye), the guru/organizer is nowhere to be found. All i have is just this small photo of her....

Day 1 - basic; free motion quilting. Started off by sewing straight lines, curve, diagonals, loops etc. Easier 'seen' than done.
Day 2 - intermediate; machine trapunto, we ( or should it be just "I"?) discovered washable thread. Sew along a traced pattern...looked simple...hmmm.
Day 3 - Advanced; was thinking at first whether i should join. Have to make continuous patterns, various shapes, free hand, no drawing.
Reaction: Confused & frustrated
It was a memorable 3 days where I discovered tricks/trade of my passion, met talented people, make friends and above all...i enjoyed myself! (not to mention, spent quite a lot too)
Conclusion: Stressful, confused, frustrated but happy with the outcome.
Keyword from sifu: Practice, practice, practice
Something that i did just few days before the workshop..(thought we have to show some of our work...)
