baby quilt to good use. Learnt a lot from this tutorial on youtube. You can check out part 2, part 3 and part 4 and make your own baby quilt from scratch. I thought it would be easier to do a free form pattern but, boy, was I wrong. Plus, I couldn't figure out how to do the binding but I'm fine with the way it turned out and Sweetie #2 has no complaints :)
here but am not very good at following instructions no matter how simple. Can't wait to join one of Little Syam's workshops someday.

Made a baby quilt blanket from an old bedsheet and pillow case for Sweetie #2. Thought I'd start with something small but it still took me a couple of months to finish. I guess with a new baby everything takes way longer. Plus, I don't have a sewing machine. That's Sweetie #1's hand in the picture swinging a candy thingy in an attempt to distract me.
With our hot weather all year round there was no point in making it any thicker so I used my dad's old sarong for the other side and sewed running stitch along the edge and along the white panels to add some accents.

Book Xcess. So many books, so little cash. Whittled down to either this or something for Sweetie #1.
Get it, Ibu, since we both like it - Sweetie #1.
A beautiful kid. A beautiful book. Got them both.
