Sew Mama Sew and fabrics from a friend

Sarubobo frame 1
Last month, I wrote an article for the blog of Sew Mama Sew.

I made a frame with Sarubobo and applique, and wrote the tutorial.
They corrected my English, so it should be better than here (* v *)!!!!!

And today, I got a package from my friend, Emishimosato.
Fabrics from EmiShimosato
There are lots of beautiful fabrics. I'm really happy with them. I love her works and my mother liked her pincushion very much. Thank you very much Emi!

Tomorrow, I send three packages. One is for her, EmiShimosato, and the other is for my mother. She wanted linen fabric for her pants, so I got some for her.
The last one is for a friend who sent me Sew Hip magazines. I got a book and made a bag for her.
It's fun to make a package for someone special, isn't it?
I'm also making some petit gifts for customers now. I like making small, tiny objects, so it's the most delightful time for me!

And I'm writing the instruction to make the book cover. I think I can post it soon!

Have a good day and good weekend for you all!

Hi Mai,I just found your blog via sew mama sew and I've spent the last hour happily reading through your beautiful archives. So much creativity and I'm so impressed that you sew everything by hand. I love the little sarubobo so much I think I will make some with my daughter tomorrow following your tutorial. Thank you for sharing. Bx

Inspired by your hand sewing, i have spent this week hand stitching a toy for my little boy. I am always making things on my machine, but i want to take some time and enjoy making things slowly. I have learned something lovely drom reading your blog. Thankyou x

Hello Mai, wow!! you are so talented! Hey, if at any time you wish to swap fabrics with me, please let me know ok? I'd like to get my hands on some Japanese Cotton and Tenugui... they are not easy to come by in Malaysia. And in return I can sent you some Chinese & Malaysian fabrics.

I have a new Craft Blog

Well, at least you have managed to come out of it with only a few inconveniences. It could have been much worse.
