I never did plan to share my proposal story on my blog for I had wanted it to be totally private and special between the Mister and me. But what prompted me to participate in this blog train that was created by Michelle was that I enjoyed reading all these love stories (how I met your father/birth stories etc) and I couldn’t help it but wanted to also document my own love story.
Recently I’ve been hearing people around me telling me how they want to start learning sewing but am not sure how to get started. Or some who have started sewing but did not have a group they can go to for some support or to seek advice from if they had some technical questions. And that’s when I find myself helping out by giving some tips or linking them up with the Singapore Spoolettes.
How are all you lovelies holding up for Me Made May so far?
I’ve been able to wear mostly me makes for this week and I have to say I’m pretty proud of myself. But I suppose at some point I’ll have to re-wear some of these pieces. But so far so good for week 1. I’ve also been enjoying looking through Instagram at all the lovely makes and very inspired by some. I already have some new patterns shortlisted and would love to try them soon! The community has been so awesome and this is such a fun activity – I still can’t wrap my head around how many people actually sew as well. I hope this inspires friends who are thinking of joining me made may to jump on the bandwagon or friends who are thinking if they should really start learning to say, I’ll say go for it man!
As a kid I’ve always liked these meat patties that my grandma makes. I don’t get to eat them often, just occasionally and they goes exceptionally well with ketchup. Once in a while now that we are all grown up now, it makes special appearances and I’ll fall in love with them all over again.
I have some really exciting news to share! While I can’t share ALL of them at one go which I’m really tempted to, I think it’s suffice to say I can share them progressively. Yes, I’m secretive and annoying like that. 🙂
Like all mothers, I often find myself pondering and asking the mister if he thought we were simulating and teaching Junior enough. He is afterall at the stage where he is learning how to pick up words and attempts to form phases with it. He is learning alphabets, numbers and shapes while not so much on colours and most of the time through books and the nursery rhymes animation he watches.
What’s a Spoolette you might ask, here’s a link to the deed if you are keen but a quick snapshot would be a place where likeminded sewist who share a common interest, rub shoulders and mingle with each other over dances, cocktails and chatter. Maybe not the cocktails for now, but mingle! Definitely! What started off in London has now spurned off internationally and Spoolettes wouldn’t have existed without these amazing ladies: Clare, Nicole, Sally and Amy.
Honestly, I don’t consider myself a blogger mom, I’m just a regular mom who likes to blog! I started this blog as a creative outlet to document my passion for sewing. I love sewing women, kids’ apparels and things for the home! But when my little bub came along in 2014, this little haven also evolved. I started sharing more of my motherhood journey, the ups-downs, joy and challenges and my newfound interest in cooking. While it does seems like a mish-mash of things, it’s exactly how life is to me right now. Now I juggle between family, work and my passion to blog about things that matters.
So read on to find out how an ordinary week looks like for me.
2 years ago when we headed to London for our honeymoon, I knew I wanted to visit Sew Over It in Clapham. The place wasn’t difficult to find and I only wished I spent more time in the shop. There was no way I was going to leave the place without actually getting a little souvenir for memory sake. And that was when I picked up the Ultimate Shift Dress pattern.
