sewing fun!

I got the sewing bugs! I did trade and got some fabrics few weeks back and I set up sewing machine at my weekend studio, got some patterns from Jo-Ann Fabrics & got busy! it's been so long since I sew and I forgot how time consuming this was... just to make simple tunic took me few weeks! well, I was only sewing on Saturdays in between customers but still... it's safe to say, sewing is only going to be my hobby! but I love it! I still have the fabric left so I'm going to cut-off one jeans and make cuff at the bottom. and maybe some aprons...

Happy Crafting:)

May Blog-o-sphere Think Tank

topic: "favourite quote(s)?" (and why? if you want to share..)

for me this is it! "what goes around comes around" this is center of my believes. karma. I work hard on my jewelry, makes every piece with heart & soul. and in return, I get happy customers:) great karma!

another one is this Buddhist saying "袖振る仲も他生の縁" my mom wrote it for me in her letter after I left my country to get married and live with my husband in U.S. I'm not sure how to translate but it means something like "even if you are just passing by with the person, we are somehow related in one life or the other". this means everybody is related somehow. my mom wrote it for me to say, even I'm faraway from my family, I'm not alone.

I want to give special thanks to very talented jeweler & great friend Andes for bringing us together every month to write these fun topics! and everybody that participating:)xoxo
