As the start of 2017, I gave myself a ‘theme’ for the year and the word was Intentional. I was adamant to stay intentional in all that I do and to give it my best regardless of the outcome. To a large extent, it helped me stay guided and focused. I think I needed the reminder the most when I got distracted or when I get so tired I just wants to lie down rather than be present for the hubs and the little one.
To be honest, I struggled with Chinese a lot when I was growing up. I grew up speaking mainly English and Cantonese. And the funny thing was that I watched a whole lot of Chinese dramas. But I guess I just wasn’t that big on reading Chinese hence the difficulty in both Primary and Secondary school. Having said that, I think I’m decent when it came to spoken Mandarin.
There is 1 thing I’ve learnt from Sophie of Ada Spragg and that is, quality sewing takes time. She has shown me in so many ways that a good sew cannot be rushed. And that is such a huge reminder to myself.
Sophie is also one who has impeccable style and wicked sewing skills, definitely one who has a wardrobe I’ll love to ransack someday (heh!). I’m always stalking her blog and getting so much inspiration out of it and I’m sure you would too, so I’m excited for her to be on this week’s mini-series where she shares more and gives us a tip or 2.
I’ve received so much encouragement on this mini-series, so I really want you to know I appreciate all your kind words and love!
I’m back with the 5th instalment and today I have Rachel of House of Pinheiro.
Can you believe it, we are halfway through 2016 and halfway through June! Where did time go?!
Thanks for all the love and support I have been getting for this mini series and am absolutely thrilled so many of you enjoyed it. Please continue to send these love across! 🙂 If you haven’t read any, now’s a good time to start and you can read all about Allie J and Sew Dixie Lou by clicking on the links!
And today we have Elena from Randomly Happy who I’m over the moon to have on this mini series.
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.
The world celebrated International Women’s Day on tuesday, while I’m late I suppose better late than never and who says we should only celebrate women on a particular day? We should always celebrate women. But yes this day serves as a good reminder to all of us to appreciate the women around us, the friendship created with other women, women that we can help and women whom we influence in one way or another.
2015 is almost over and Adesays will turn 3 years soon! As compared to many, 3 years is hardly a long time, but this is definitely a milestone for me especially for someone who has a fleeting attention span.
