I do not know when I started sewing. I remember that once my grandmother told me that I cut her new deel - a traditional Mongolian costume, into pieces. I cannot remember how old I was and why I did. Maybe I was trying to sew something out of it. Anyway, before starting to sew something you have to cut fabrics, don't you? I loved her old Singer sewing machine with pedal too. I always wished to have my grandmother's old machine. It worked for many years and was moved from one place to another at least twice a year because of Mongolian nomadic life style. I think, as my uncle's wife told me, it still sews.
At school I learnt to knit and continued sewing little things. After finishing my secondary school I wanted to be a fashion designer. But this did not happen. I do not think it will happen now either, but meantime I am sewing something else.
Now after sitting for many years at home with masters degree I am learning new things and teaching how to make bags and quilts. These little purses I made from Japanese fabrics and many people like to learn how to make them.
I started a spiral quilt this summer with help of my American friend Vicki. Looks complicated but it is not. All the fabric pre-laser-cut. I just had to follow instructions to join them together. Now this work in progress because I have to find some colourful fabric to continue to make a single bed quilt.
