Serging Fairytale came Alive

Filed under: Rants — xstitcherzo @ 5:33 pm

When I received Barbara’s tote bag…I showed my mum her serged ends…Saying that is so cool and neat. Then before I can even blinked my eyes or really, really clean my ears…thought something might be wrong with it you see…like not functioning properly when she said that.

She said that I too can have my ends serged…just buy the machine. She even add that when I buy the machine I can do the baju kurung (Malay traditional dress) The words that I’ve been wanting to hear eversince she send me to learn how to sew when I was 17yrs old. 1 yr later…I plan to buy the serging machine. But how do I bring it home without being detected by mum when I know she would disapproves my spending habits. Can’t bring thru the bedroom window without being detected. As the windows is louvres. :-p

So the 13yrs wait is over. The machine have been safely bought (before she changed her mind) and now sitting (still in the box, I’ve removed the manual, cd and guarantee card only) in my room. I would meet up with the instructor on Saturday….learn how to serge…woohoo.

There you go my 3rd baby. 1st is my 9++yrs old sewing machine, 2nd my Little Terror and 3rd is this overlock machine.

It’s Brother Overlock machine model 3034D.

I’ve been RAK by Barbara. She sends me…well more like to my Little Terror. The moment I opened up the parcel….showed him the bag…he ran off with it before you can even say “wait one minute”.

I had to threaten him before he returns it back to get a few snaps. Oh, threaten that he would sleep outside the house…. 🙂

She added 2 lovely Carrie’s Creations Threads….dangerous woman…the colours is so beautiful and I’m sitting on the edge of threads temptations….lol

Reading at the moment – John Bellairs Mystery : The Letter, the Witch and the Ring

Short summary of the book : Rose Rita Pottinger is Lewis’s friend. Lewis off to a boy’s scout camp while Rose Rita refused to go to a girl’s scout camp. She thinks is too girly for her. She likes being a boy.

Just touch teens, she has difficulty adapting to girlhood with her tomboy identity.Loves baseball. Mrs Zimmerman received a letter from her dead cousin. Inherited the farm and were told by Jonathan to check on on the ring . So off they went, Mrs Zimmerman and Rose Rita.

The farm was wrecked and Mrs Zimmerman landed in hospital. Rose Rita met a new friend, Aggie. Uncovered the deadly Solomon Ring with a devil Asmodai to call upon to grant the wearer their biddings. A black dog incarnation that fooled me too.

Mrs Zimmerman was rescued when the spell were broken that was casted by an old friend of hers.  Rose Rita never get round to wishing for that ‘wish’

A good read and much better than the previous book.

Children Book Read – 01

Book Read : John Bellairs Mystery – The House With a Clock in Its Walls.

I’m reading children books as some of you can tell. Something less stressful for reading pleasure.

Short summary of the book :

Lewis Barnavelt lost his parents in a car accident. Came to live with his Uncle Jonathan who is a wizard. His neighbour Mrs Zimmerman who is a witch that keeps popping over to cooked for Jonathan.

Jonathan would sneaks out during midnight to stop the clocks, hoping to find that one clock that have been ticking away eversince he moved into the house that was owned by Old Izard and his wife Serenna Izard. A powerful but evil witches who wants to obiliterate the world.

Lewis and his friend Tarby, visited the grave on Halloween Night and unknowingly woke up the dead Serenna Izard. Strange things begin to happen. One night, Jonathan, Mrs Zimmerman and Lewis found the clock. Lewis smashed it and thus the world is save from destruction.

Remarks : Nothing fanciful or I should say interesting on the storyline. When Jonathan was trying to eclipse the moon….it was dead boring. Same goes when they thought of silliest way to find the clock. Very silly.

SBEBB Freebie Exchange to Marika

Filed under: Exchanges — xstitcherzo @ 1:33 pm

I noticed on the SBEBB forum that Marika have received my exchange. I think that everyone should move to Finland as this is the fastest post ever to reach anyone even via registered mail. 🙂

I stitched Friendship Grows by Lizzie Kate. And made into a mini pillow. This is the side view of the stuffed pillow. As you can see, I really stuffed or over-stuffed the pillow….lol. It reminds me of the movie “Flubber”… squishy! It nearly never make it, as Little Terror was protesting to keep. Yikes!!

And the front view of the pillow. With 4 dark blue buttons at each corner. Maybe I should have choose a different coloured buttons….to give a more contrast….*shake heads* while muttering ‘aiyah’

The whole exchange that I send to Marika. Hope you’ll enjoy them. 🙂 Well I did not send the red scissor. In the exchange, I’ve included silver and pink ribbon, Carrie’s Creation Threads, L*K chart, blue fabric and a packet of round thingy…I don’t know what you call  but can string threads to them when you stitch it in place in needlebook.
