Dear Family & Friends
After the past weeks summer pruning ground direction assisting job given to my husband, it seems like there's not much gardening jobs that need urgent attention....oh yes, not quite true... there's the non-stop weeding to do...but at this time, that seem to slow down a bit due to cooling summer.
Somehow, I started focusing on "in house" projects. The crochet lap blankets for the girls are called finished by now.
|decided to carry on further...|
Then, I felt lost, I need to continue on more homemade projects. So, a recycled old clothes quilt project has started.

This one's going to be another colourful, no cost project. It's all hand sewing too. Easy to pick up or drop off as time permits.

I still don't know exactly how it will end...but so far, it kept me well occupied!
|embroidered letters... It was a challenging task!!|
I have been drawn to homemade sewing here and there lately. In fact, just finished an embroidery batch for the toothbrush bottle holder. It did prettied up the plain recycled bottle which holds our toothbrushes. I wasn't sure about embroidering letters...it was hard for me and I was so intensed on what I was doing for a couple of hours one afternoon! Loving the finished project. It brings smile and a bit of humour to our daily health routine.

This is a very big framed board which I filled up with four of the paintings the two girls, done 6 years ago...it's probably time for them to come up with more paintings ... but so far, their interest these days are more focused on language learning. I'm sure they'll give me more paintings to cherish, one of these days....
Crafting and homemade projects can keep us inspired in our daily living. What have you been kept busy with recently?
Wishing you a lovely and a day full of joy.
