Domesticated

'M in the state of domesticity...must be the Christmas mood. Put up more Christmas lights and tree, hang Christmassy curtain, present wrappings etc etc. So bliss.........


Self present for Christmas - picnic basket. Original color - dark chocolate with no fabric. Sprayed paint white and tried to jahit kain sarung dalam. Used flea market checked fabric and after many trial and errors and 8 fingers being pricked by needles (usaha berdarah ni) manged to scrap through and finished the picnic basket. It took 3 hours intensive labors and plaster tangan untuk this mammoth task. Seriously menyesal aku tidak ambil kelas Sains Rumahtangga time sekolah menengah dulu. Should have taken the domestic science so as will have basic training on stitching and needlework! Anih pi ambil kelas perdagaangan, apa guna kan!cisssssss...


Stages of making the fabric...
Tadadadadadadadadaddaadada..the finished product!

Hi Whimsical, you sure one very creative lady. Love your X'mas tree.
We have real Xmas, pine trees outside, now snow covered, and most homes have real trees outside their houses, and all have put up colored, decorative lights, looks really nice especially when its snowing.

It snowed like crazy yesterday and today....all white outside. -14'c!
I guess no need to listen to Incik Bing Crosby's, "I'm dreaming of a white X'mas"....

Hey, I like your basket and have always loved check cloth. Our kitchen table has always checked table cloth too.

You have a great week, best regards, Lee.
