Long time, no see

It’s been awhile since I have posted. It has been hectic and crazy here. My oldest daughter graduated from Auburn and we moved her home. My husband was able to get home from Singapore for the ceremony.

We had a little party for her and then moved her home… a 3 1/2 hour trip. Then to the airport to get my mom back home and back to unpack. I am not going to even show you a picture of the garage or her room.

I finally completely finished all the pillows and a table runner for the apartment in Singapore. These pictures were taken in a hurry cause they had to go into a suitcase!

The table runner makes me happy …it’s reversible. One side is a zig zag …tutorial found at crazymom quilts.

The other side is a disappearing nine patch. PS I quilt has a good tutorial on her blog for this one….and lots of cute quilts. I used some Alexander Henry fabric that I found at JoAnne’s and some Denyse Schmidt that I found there too.

The pillows are all reversible and have a zipper closure. I used some of my favorite fabrics for the pinwheels and flying geese…reunion by sweetwater for moda. Love it. I raided the stash for the backings. I love the chair fabric but can’t remember where I got it or the designer.

There is a great tutorial at SewMamaSew but created by creative little daisy on putting a zipper in a pillow with a flap to cover it. I like that option because you can use a coordinating fabric and make it reversible. Two for one!

The next time I see these they will be getting unpacked in our apartment in Singapore. The four of us are traveling there for two months. First we are stopping in Germany for a few days. We don’t have internet access in our hotel so I’ll see you once we get to Singapore. Excited and nervous. Keep us in your prayers.

What to eat in Singapore

I want to keep track of this post for when we go to Singapore. There are some great food ideas! Places to eat and what to eat. very grateful for Rachel’s post and the pictures are great. A picture is worth a thousand words! ( especially when it comes to food).

Thank you Rachel! This post will help us enjoy our trip there so much!

World Flavor

Singapore’s food is fairly similar to that of Malaysia. Generally the same groups of people live in Singapore as do in Malaysia. Some say the only things to do in Singapore are eat and shop. I don’t know about that, but I do know that if you stick with eating you won’t go wrong.

Food in Singapore is not as cheap as in Malaysia, but it is still affordable. If you stick to hawker centres, you will be getting delicious food as well as great deals (a meal can easily be had for under S$5). I went to Tekka Centre in Little India and Chinatown Complex in Chinatown, but there are lots more (the Wikipedia link to hawker centres lists notable hawker centres in Singapore – start there for ideas).

Another way to eat affordably is to go to food courts in malls. It won’t be quite as cheap…
