This pin cushion is made by my auntie (my father’s little sister), given to me the last time I went back home. She is the one who taught me how to do embroidery.
I could do embroidery very well when I was only 7 years. I used to go to her house during school holidays (it’s my grandparents house, actually and she still stayed there because she hasn’t married yet), and we spent hours together to do embroidery.
I normally did a bouquet of flowers on the corner of handkerchief. At that time, nobody bring tissue at school. We brought handkerchief. And I would proudly use mine, knowing that I did the embroidery myself. Too bad that I lost all my handkerchiefs.
I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 4 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing my own patterns, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year. My patterns can be found on my blog
and through Etsy and on Ravelry.
