This one is for Kak Sue.

Here's a photo of my workstation at the office.

Sgt kecik dan simple because i'm at "transit". They're renovating our office. All my stuff are in boxes at the new workstation so it's pretty hard to mess up the desk (though i still manage to sometimes). of course my favourite photo of Adam is my wallpaper there. there's a cup of horlicks in front of me, red tumbler for water, and the green bottle is filled with my Fenugreek capsules. All three things are to promote milk production. So you wonder whether i'm here to work or make milk.

here's a photo of my favourite workstation, at home.

this is the awesome sewing machine lent to me by my wonderful auntie (Thank you MakcikNita and Intan!!!). One of these days i NEED to buy myself one! You can see various items thrown around in careless manner around the machine - handy for grabbing them at any moment ;) there's a black folder there where i put all the paterns that i cut out of newspaperso that i can go back and make another one if i want to (see abang, there's some semblance of organisation here, i'm not all that messy..hehe). couple of see through boxes there to keep needles, threads, buttons and what-nots.

This one another photo of my sewing station - at the back of the machine. Here's where i keep my fabric stash...cantik jugakkan..sebab saya dah kemas sikit sebelom amik pic...kalau tak tak muat nak masuk pic cos berterabur sgt...hehe..

you're right kak sue, tags are fun :)

kak sue,
kain kat blakang tu cuma kain2 yg still big pieces..yg kain perca lagi berterabur dlm plastic bags on the floor..sayang nak buang..hehe..kak sue, gi la pinjam/beli mesin jahit...boleh kite jahit sama2....hehe

that bag very easy one to make. i want to give to my husband tak bagi cos dia berkenan (to give to me..erk). tuty, you know ke machine ape yg bagus ek..singer ke? cptla bonus...nak beli machine....hehe

i takde pc kat rumah..laptop office pun tak bawak balik...hehe. along! jom la kite meet up kalau you balik KL!!!

Anasfadilah said...

blog hop and fine urs...wah...menjahit juge ek...saya pun menjahit juga (tapi jahit tangan into bags at the moment...)

still in dire need to buy mesin jahit...

saw the kain pettern bag tu...saya pernah nampak kat nagoya...heheh

salam kenal!

p/s::teringin buat mei tai juga...tapi jahit tangan tak convincing la...hehehe

hi, nak tanya ur expertise. topstitch tu macam jahit jelujur ke? tq :)

Anonymous said...

singer is good choice. aftersales service pun bagus. boleh tgk online for price. huhu paling murah almost 700.. dulu my mom beli around 300-400 je! tp tu berbelas thn duluuu

adam jom kita main lawan sapa jerit paling kuat.

aidafiqs adamia said...

i think probably for Mei tai kene guna machine jugalah...sbb you'll carry your child in it...must be strong and safe. but for bags so cool la you jahit pakai tgn =)

i've never looked it up but so far from the tutorials i've read, i think when they say topstitch they mean jahit atas seam. camni, you sew your seam, then press seam together with the right sides out and then stitch over the top..boleh paham ke yer..biasanya topstich i use at the top of the bag (kalau jahit bag).hope that helps..

aftersales service it a brand? sorry tak tau...hehe..u kalau beli online tu u beli mana...ebay?

Adam : jom hafiy jom..AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

hehe tak brapa paham sbb saya buta jahit tapi takpa saya try test dulu. ni nak try jahit cloth shoes tu. tqvm :)

aidafiqs adamia said...

aaa i see...untuk cloth shoe tu kan..contohnya kalau bahagian top kasut tu...lepas kite jahit the top and top lining together (right sides together) kite terbalikkan and iron dia kan? pastu kite jahit over our seam - yg baru jahit tadi. itulah panggil top stitch..bukan jahit jelujur kot..jahit biasa..kalau jahit jelujur mcm loose sikit..

sorri my explaination mcm confusing kan...

Anasfadilah said...

permisi ya tuan blog

i link up ur blog to mine...pasal it aint easy nak cari geng jahit-menjahit ni...

p/s::harus setuju,mei tai kena jahit guna mesin,guna tangan alamat letak anak...habis laaaa!

Anonymous said...

tqvm mommyadam. i'll try my best to buat the shoe :)

Anasfadilah said...

me too jahit booties...hehehe

*saje nyibuk*

go lah and see my hand sew booties and soft shoes...hehehe

*promote plak lagi*

aidafiqs adamia said...

tq for linking me...i feel u can see i have no links cos i don't know how!!! but you're right susah nak cari geng jahit2...maybe some we should do a swap! what do u think...

i have actually seen your booties!! comel2!!! your Chomel must be excited sgt nak kuar to wear them! heheh...

i tak boleh baca your blog la....nak baca bolehhhh??? goodluck with the us the results ok...

Anonymous said...

alaaa nak tgk blog anasdila bole?

aida, i blum beli mesin jahit lagi. tp i search 'singer malaysia' ada website, show their products. after sale service bukan brand, what i meant was, nak service mesin ke nak cari spare parts ke senang. err paham ke apa i ckp ni. mcm pusing2..

nway i cuma tau brand 'singer' je pun. hahaha lagi satu brang is 'juki' tp itu mcm dah hebat sangat boleh bukak kedai jahit.

aidafiqs adamia said...

ooo baru i paham...hehe

Anonymous said...

Hi Aida,
I don't know whether u still remember me, its Diana Anuar (ex 6 Raya), I just wanna wish you A HAppy Belated Mother's Day and I just want you to know that you are a GREAT MOTHER, Adam is very lucky to have you as his mother,,FYI i started reading your blog about 5 mths ago and you and your family are such an inspiring and loving people i've ever met.
Even though we hardly know each other in school those days, i am feeling very very happy for you and you know what,(i know it sounds awkward)everytime i read your blog, i felt so happy for no reason. I guess it just makes me happy to know that other people is happy. Anyways, keep writing cause your story is such an inspiration and may Adam be as inspiring as you are.

An old classmate...-Diana-

hi diana,
i do remember you from school and oh dear your comment really made my day..for the first time someone tells me i'm a great mom. i can't tell you how good that makes me feel..thank you so must be a wonderful person if it makes you happy just to know that other people is happy.

thank you for reading my you have one too?i'd love to get to know you again..

Hi aida,
I dont have any kid because i'm not yet married..hahah...and neither do i have any boyfriend..i',m married my job and my study i guess..well some people are meant to be a good mother (such as yourself) and some people might have have to wait till that moment to come (hopefully it'll come). Not all people are lucky as you are, but still they didnt feel unlucky, maybe Allah meant them to do something else first before entering marriage life and motherhood (hopefully). Anyways,i'll keep on reading your blog and keep praying that happiness will always be with your family. Send my warmest regards to your lovely and sweet Adam. Maybe we will meet someday..Who knows..

Love -Diana-
