Baltimore Album: Another 4 Blocks.

Another 4 blocks done today. I want to make 12 blocks of Baltimore Album, but I have 'base' fabric only for 8 blocks. So I must find out how to make it into 12 blocks or 9 blocks. You must be wondering why didn't I change the base fabric! ..Oh, I fell in love with this base fabric.. it's really nice old fabric that I've got from a long time ago and I want to match it with my old scraps.

Maybe.. maybe.. if you have the same base fabric as mine you will kindly send them to me! :) :) :)

When I was googling "Baltimore Album", this one shown up..
A nice song.. Baltimore by Nina Simone.

Enjoy your Saturday night, dear friends!

Scrappy Simple Speaker

We need a music when we are working aka sewing, don't we?. I asked my daughter to upload some songs from her files to my iPhone, she has nice songs collection.

My iPhone always follow me wherever I go (LOL).. I do have a real speaker and an earphone but today I don't want to use both of them. I made this simple speaker just for fun. Sometime my eyes are getting so tired to sew, so I try to do something else.

You need: Paper towel roll, paper glue, some small scraps and cutter.
Cut a hole that fit for iPhone or other phones. 
The phone side with a speaker should get into the roll.

Cover the roll with scraps, no need to glue it neatly. 
The glue won't show up when it dry.

Mix glue with a little bit of water then apply them all over the scrappy roll. 
Let it dry out completely.

Enjoy your music!

Corner Bookmark.

Today, I am going to meet my sister. We will meet in the center of the city, it's the middle place from where each of us live.. Tangerang - Jakarta - Bekasi. We set our departure at the same time so we will arrive at the same time too in Jakarta :)

But something came up, my sister should go to hospital. Her mother in law has been hospitalized lately (I pray for her health). My sister need to go there first, she told me to wait for her call.

While I was waiting I made this corner bookmark. Original designed by Lindsay Conner.
Very easy to make! ;)

I used one fabric (5"square). Folded in half.

Sew the fabric (I didn't sew the folded side), leave the gap for turning, clip the corner.

Turn it inside out, sew around about 1/8" or 1/4" from edge.

Fold it in half and hand sew only on one side.

 Open it and make into triangle, press it.

I still wait for my sister's call, I hope everything is fine with her mother in law.

Pretty Table Runner : Done.

I always brought this project wherever I go. I thought I could do the quilting on the way because it's only small table runner, but that never happens. I always brought it back home without touching it at all.

But now it's done, I put it beside my sofa and I did the quilting when I watched TV.. (lol)
This table runner looks so pretty on the table.

I edited this picture on Instagram (Sierra), see the original colours below.

I changed my mind from machine quilting to hand quilting :).
