Finally the Curtains were up..

This is probably going to be my last update for the year 2011..so a lot of photos..

I was at this beautiful home from 10.am till 4.30 pm.putting up the curtains.After several postponement, due to the renovation works,today the curtain job was completed with not a singe alteration needed..Thumbs up!!The work went smoothly although i feel that the job could have been completed many hours earlier if we did not spent too much time moving furniture to allow space for the ladder and putting  them..(the furniture and the multitude of other things which really hampered our movements  ) .... back in place.huhuhu..


I manage to snap some photos. 


The window in the bridal room..

The main living


The second living


The tall window at staircase going up


Toilet for the guests downstairs


The dry kitchen..notice the multitude of things on the cabinet.


Another room downstairs..hmmmmmm


The renovated room upstairs..the best room to work with..empty except for the bed and wardrobe...it was so windy...great feng shui..


a small window at the same  renovated room upstairs...can you see the sheers blowing in the wind...


the bridal room is partly done..the fresh flowers will only arrive tomorrow.The bed set is customer's own....but the fabric for two  piece pillows with black background are from ELYZA. 


Toilet in green..the little lace makes it pretty ehh!


I was unable to take photos of three rooms as the cleaners were preoccupied with the mopping and polishing and everything look messy and it was just impossible to be documented in photos.huhuhu.


I will be going there again tomorrow for some minor touch ups.....And now i need a good rest on my cozy bed..have a wonderful weekend and merry christmas to all my christian friends.

Curtain installation on the 20th.....

was also not meant to be....date moved to the 23rd...arrrrrgh!there goes my scheduled wedding to attend in Sungai Petani ,saturday 24th..Yikes!


Well i just hope everything hangs well on that day with no alterations needed in time for the wedding on the 25th..My sewers will all be on long leave by then..This is my first time getting a big house ready for a wedding just 2 days away..I usually hang curtains and get the wedding bed ready at least a week before the big day.This is to ensure i have ample time to adjust any imperfections along the way.But since this is the third time i am doing the house curtains i think any flaws will be kept to a minimum.hahaha...nobody is perfecttt!keeping fingers cross and praying hard though....

Comforter makeover....

My next project is a comforter makeover...this comforter was nicely done at MACY,BLAKONG about couple of years ago..i was told so  by  customer ..

The size of the diamond quilt is 10 inch x 10 inch....and the size of the ready quilt is 110 inch x 110 inch my mission is to reduce the diamond to 5 inch x 5 inch and the ready quilt to 81 inch x 86 inch..embellished with tassels at all 3 corners.....

She also also brought along 5 meters of organza sheers and 4 meters of  baby blue cotton polyester fabric for the bed skirting..to go along with the modified comforter.

The sheers are just enough for the 21 inch drop of frills but the 4 meters of cotton polyester is short of another 4 meters..I need 8 meters to do the bed skirt of size 61 inch x 76 inch and 2 pillow covers...thats the normal size of a queen size bed in MALAYSIA..

nampaknye kene bertandang ke NAGOYA to top up another 4 meters of the baby blue material  Haish!..............

A sudden change of plan..

Today i woke up in high spirits hoping that the day will turn out well as planned.So i packed my humble wira to the brim with curtains to dress up a 7 bedded home at Gombak.At 9.00am..had a hearty breakfast of nasi dagang with daughter who has been my loyal assistance for the last 3 months..At 9.45am i picked up an installer..a borrowed staff from Zainal Canopy..Arrived at destination at about 10.15am.To my dismay renovation works were still in progress and the house is still dusty with loads of storage  boxes strewn on every corner of the room..Arrrgh! and to think that the wedding is just 8 days away!So after discussing with lady of the house a new date was fixed .I will return on the 20th for the curtain installation .


So with so much free time at my disposal i made a detour to Carefour for lunch, drop by Nagoya .Look what i grabbed just to brighten up my day..


sale at 20% off..hahaha orang sibuk beli designer cotton..kite beli cotton rega RM9.80 aje.






and look at this adorable storage bags..great way to haul my curtain sheers..

So how was your day?Definitely not as bad as mine..ehh.

Next on the cutting table...

BLUE ROSES pulak...These roses is for the casual room for the newly weds..I have chosen green for the formal bridal room downstairs.I am sure the brides have enough of green on their plates..hihihi..And so BLUE it will be ..





I am keeping it simple..a 3 layer curtain in just plain traditional french pleats or maybe for some rich folds.. in  pencil pleats perhaps?..you can never go wrong in both styles .. ...


And this bundle will be leaving the shop soon...


All nicely packed and hooked..


And now a weekend to enjoy..a rest for my shoulders..
