Make over on a head gear, a square scarf folded into triangles and worn with matching baju kurong... the beads were sewn to camouflage the faded embroidery threads.

Sleeves with more elaborate beads on a pale colored baju kurong...

Sleeves of my baju kurong (recycled ... the baju is almost 8 years old) that I sewn myself. Notice the hemming is quite fine. Today's tailors never sewn this "fine" (?).

One side of the completed sleeve.
When I tried to smoothen the slightly-crumpled-fabric on the other sleeve... guess what had happened to it???? Notice the darker color(???) in the picture at the bottom? It's the temperature setting doing the bit!!!! (not ME!)...Now my daughter never got to wear this blouse with beads on... sob, sob!
Sad piece of work (I have left the needle and thread intact, for months now)
Out of frustration, leaving the needle and thread on, still thinking out loud what to do with this uncompleted work... I can't figure out how other than buying a piece of new fabric and replace with new sleeves.

This dark blue baju kurong was worn by my youngest daughter on her "college graduation" night. It took me almost a week to complete the bead work. The main focus of this garment is on the sleeves and its bottom part.... knee high length...

This was my oldest bead work on my baju kurong... its almost in the middle part of the baju. Worn many times during different occasion as I love the purple color so much.

Some of the pictures are re-posted...

The burnt red piece is till on the clothes hanger... and ever since, I have temporarily kept all the beads, thread and needles away.

I аm curious whіch blogging platform you might bе running?

I'm new to running a blog and have been thinking about using the Hubpages platform. Do you think this is a good platform to start with? I would be really grateful if I could ask you some questions through e-mail so I can learn a bit more prior to getting started. When you have some free time, please get in touch with me at: Thanks alot :)

TO all my lovely anonymous visitors who have spent time browsing, stopping by my blog and leaving some beautiful words... I must say I appreciate this tremendously.

Although I have not been regularly writing in this blog, but I certainly get to read your comments...

About the blog layout, I just copied from the template found at the bottom of the blog. The design of the header is from my own "first" glass painting I have ver tried out in my life. I have given it away to a long lost friend whom I met again through this blog. So to keep the painting "safe" I used it as my blog header.

The rest of the colours by the sides, I took time to use try and error methods and kept on going until I was satisfied with the whole theme.

I must say, that was done before I got hooked and really busy on Face Book.

I love art, so I play around with colours to suit my taste. I hope I have answered some queries I found here.

Apologies for late late late reply.
