Grow Your Blog with Giveaway

Hi everyone!
 
There is a party happening today namely “Grow Your Blog” hosted by the lovely Vicki from 2 Bags Full.   The idea of the party is to introduce yourself, and your blog with the intention that you find someone out there with common interest and increase your blog reader.
2 Bags Full

So without further ado...let me introduce myself...
My name is Hafza.  I am married with three daughters and two boys. I live in Malaysia and work full time as a Librarian.  I started blogging in 2009 as a place to record my handmade and  share my craft work. My hobbies during free time are sewing, and crocheting.   But along the way I started to find interesting blog and that's  how I start to learn to quilt.

My 1st quilt
 I love to participate in  Sew Along, Crochet Along and challenges as a way to learn new things. Following are some of them...

Great Granny along



Sunburst Granny Square Crochet along
