Bazaar Fun ~ 市集乐

在九月份和十月份时个别参加了两所华德福学校的义卖会。场面很是热闹。

这一次为了这两个义卖会,很努力的制作。好久没有这样熬夜了,呵呵。能遇见欣赏自己作品的人,是缘分,是一件非常开心的事。

这个十一月十九日,还有一场义卖会。正在努力当中。希望可以和更多有缘人相遇。
圣诞节也要到了。也想制作一些应节的作品。啊,太多想做的东西进度却很慢。:D

London Theme Tote - 伦敦风包包

One of my aunts has requested for a shopping bag. Guess she must have like London a lot that she picked this fabric to make the bag. :)

Hope the bag would serve her needs when she is out shopping. It's simple yet classy.

Cool and Calming Blue Checked Tote ~ 疗癒蓝色

I love all colours, especially blue. It's calming and soothing. 

I made this small blue checked tote. Added simple embroidery patterns at the front pocket. Embroidery is simply a beautiful embellishment for any fabric works.

Hand Embroidery ~ 手缝刺绣

Lately, I have started learning to do hand embroidery. Not attending any classes but learning on my own from books, magazine and sometimes online tutorial. I'm a left handed person, so it's rather challenging to follow the instructions in the books. I have to mentally flip the instructions :D The good news is I found an embroidery book just for left handed embroiderer. Hope it will make my learning a lot easier.

Here are some embroidery works done recently. For a beginner level, I'm quite pleased with the work.  :)

Children Sewing Workshop ~ 亲子手缝课

八月份学校假期时,受城邦阅读花园的邀请办了一场亲子手缝课。

我很喜欢缝纫。但不算是专业人士。没有上过正式的缝纫课。都是看书一边做一边学习。所以当受邀约开课时会不确定我真的可以教吗?朋友鼓励的说,想和会就可以了!我没有特别的专业技术,有的是热诚。我担忧的是怕教不好。老天好像听到我的忧虑。透过一个演讲告诉我,只管把要做的事去做就对了,做得好不好是另一回事。不踏出去,就永远不知道你的能力在那。是的,我必须勇敢的接受机会。

很高兴这次的手缝课圆满的完成。参加的人数超乎我的预计。还好教学进行得还顺利。管理上课的时间方面有待改善。孩子们专注了约两个小时后就会累了。专注两个多小时对他们来说真的是很棒了。考虑以后要有个小茶点时间。歇一歇。让家长接手。这样就真的是亲子一起完成的工作了。孩子们也不会因为没有在预定的时间内自己完成工作而感到不安。







孩子们的可爱作品。可惜有些没有拍到。

Art of Living ~ 生活美学

生活既是美学的练习场。美,不只是在美术馆里。美,是生活的一部分,在衣,食,住,行里。蒋勋老师说,学习生活美学,从吃开始。用心的准备一道菜,好好享受一顿饭,这样你就会爱你的生活。因为你花过时间及心血。

我也不断的在每一天的生活中学习放慢,学习享受每一个过程。洗碗的时候专注洗碗,煮饭的时候专注煮饭。不让思绪跑到下一个工作去。如果一直想着下一个要做的事就无法专注及享受当下正在进行的工作。就会感到很厌烦和迫不急待的去完成一项又一项的事物。人生并不是要我们来完成无数样的事情。完成一件事并非是目标。人生是要来体验的。在每一个事件的过程中你体验了什么,感受了什么才是最重要的。而每一个体验会帮助我们更认识自己。

Floral Tote ~ 花卉包包

This floral prints fabric has been sitting in the cupboard for some time already. Not that I don't like it, it's because I love it too much that I was rather hesitate to cut it.

Then one day, I spotted a lady carrying a green shade floral bag. The bag is so lovely and it reminded me of the floral prints fabric that I have which could be used to make a similar one. So upon reaching home I immediately searched for the fabric in my cupboard which was buried deep under a big pile of fabric that I have collected over the years. 

So here it is, a floral tote. Not sure if it's because of the green or the floral that's doing the magic, everyone who saw it fall in love with it. :)

Beautiful floral prints
