red square...

I made this one last night. I really wanted to sew something and I came up with this idea. . Guess what it is?

Back view

errkk..i saw something in there..erasable marker? small note book? needle book?'s a place for my sewing stuffs. Wish that it can keep all of my stuffs but i guess it's for some important stuffs only. It's more for travelling purposes.

I actually wanted to put the cross stitch fabric for this needle's area but I don't have the fabric at the moment and I was too excited to sew this item in a day. So, i replaced it with the fibre instead.

I can put my small notebook, scissor, ruler, pencil/pen, 'penetas' (erkk..I dun't know this word in English). Can someone help me?

And I can put some threads too!
I should have name for this finished item. Ermmh..should i call it 'red square pouch'? Ermmhh...looks okay for me. By the way, it's for myself. Name does not matters, right? Happy sewing everybody!!Challo!!

new books

I bought few books at big bad wolf book sale at Pj last weekend. Very cheap for the first hand books. The price is in the range of RM5-RM20. Attempted to buy a lot of books but at the end of the day i only bought 2 quilt books, 1 knitting and another one is a novel based on the true story. it consider as novel? hehehe.. And another book which is 'just hats' was actually my dodo's choice. I'm not in a mood doing knitting at the moment..but maybe one day the passion will come i guess..

And for this one, they're actually souvenir cum gifts from him. He went to Medan for a company trip for 4 days( and i did miss him so much! 4 days without sms-ing,voice..waaa!! sungguh busan hidup!). Luckily I got a lot of things from him.. Thank u so much,my schatzi! There are few items which are not in the pic actually....keychain (batik), food-kek lapis legit,kek bingka, jeruk blueberry (sedap!) errkk..another one is...i forgot the name already but it is actually kacang tumbuk disalut dgn sesame. mmg sedap..yummy!yummy!yummy! more,more,and more things for me, dear!!

to the finale of tulip hearted quilt

My first quilt is going to be completed soon. I managed to buy the fibre last Wednesday at Sect 9 Shah Alam. Wait till I post my ‘new-last’ entry for this tulip hearted quilt this coming Monday. A lot of changes I’ve done so far for this baby quilt. Well, no one is going to see the original design, right? What they can only see is the finished product and I am quite satisfied with this coming finished product. If that looks good, that’s all that matters! No more 24 or 17 tulips...but 9 pieces sad!..hahaha..till my fingers meeting this keyboard again.challo!

new layout

It's been a while I have not updating my blog. My quilt is still in progress. hehehe...It's pending actually since I don't have few stuffs and it's quite busy these few weeks..(this meant for my office work actually..too many cases!).But still I want to update something today since I have done few changes for my blog. Only a minor changes. I changed my blog's template from 2 column into 3 column template and rearrranged all the widgets based on this new template.

Ermhh...maybe I can just update in here on how I did all these changes.
First of all, I’m using the minima template where it has two column template. It has few parameter and it is the easiest and the simplest template to customise. The reason why I want to change it to three columns is because I want to maximise the upper page of my blog with the important things and reduce my time for scrolling down in order to search bla bla bla... (hehehehe..)

Here we go..8 simple steps!

  1. Go to Template>Edit HTML, and leave the "Expand widget templates" box unchecked.
  2. Find this section in the HTML code:
    #sidebar-wrapper { width: 220px; float: right; word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */ overflow: hidden; /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */ }
    Copy this entire section, and paste it directly below. You need to change few elements in the section that you have pasted. So the second section will become like this(please refer the one that I highlighted in red).
    # left-sidebar-wrapper { width: 220px; float: left; word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */ overflow: hidden; /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */ }
    So, now we will have a new sidebar at the left of the layout.
  3. I add another code which is highlighted in green before this section highlighted in red.
    {div id='left-sidebar-wrapper' }{b:section class='sidebar' id='left-sidebar' preferred='yes'/ }{ /div}
    {div id='main-wrapper'}
  4. The next thing I changed was the width of the wrappers. Find all these 3 different section in the HTML code:
    #outer-wrapper {width: 660px;
    #left-sidebar-wrapper {220px;
    #header-wrapper {660px;
    I changed all the value (highlighted in red) to 880px
  5. Save the new template now and add one or two elements(widgets) to the new left side bar..
  6. Then I did some changes in the main wrapper by adding the codes define in red below.
    #main-wrapper { width: 410px; float: left; margin-left: 20px; word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */ overflow: hidden; /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */ }
  7. Since there is a margin space of 20px between the left-sidebar and the main column, I did some changes again for the outer-wrapper by changing the width from 880px to 900px.
  8. Save my new template and I’m using my new 3 column template!
    Hope this tips can help!

p/s: For step #3, make sure to change this symbol '{}' to '<>' in your html code. Sorry for any inconvinience caused. Somehow the correct symbol cannot be shown in this entry as a fully code.
