I'd been away, back to Singapore for two weeks along with Brian and Kaeden. The main reason back was to attend my cousin's wedding which I'd been looking forward to the past months. On a few occasions, Brian and I went looking around at schools as well, one which could be Kaeden's future learning place. The whole trip, my mind was on overdrive, mapping out some plans and worrying over some, to the extent I was afraid I'd turned into an insomniac. Now that I'm back home, I'm catching up on sleep and looking forward to attending my yoga classes. I find that going for classes help shape my week and doing yoga stretches have upped my stamina a lot these days.

I need to replace my tearing old yoga mat bag but I couldn't find a sturdy one to buy in Singapore. I usually bring two mats along with me each time so I need one which could withstand the weight. Out of necessity, for there's a lesson tomorrow, I quickly sewed one up with fabric once bought from Ikea and then another, yesterday. I removed the strap and drawstring fastener from the old bag and sewed it onto the new one. I used some pre-loved fabric and brown trim to make another for Brian, who sometimes followed me into class after some hoaxing on my part.

The last Saturday before we left for Singapore, Kaeden attended his music lesson and his classmate sprang a birthday favour pack on him. It was her birthday recently. Hence on a sewing high, after the bags, I made a gift pouch using the Strawberry Shortcake theme fabric again for holding the contents we intend to give as a belated birthday present.
