These great awards are from SHIMA. Thanks dear for your thoughtfulness and an honour receiving them. Thanks again.

I am sending these awards off to all dear readers and friends......


Well, much hope that readers here are not bored with my pouches..... :)

This is for Amy Ezora of e-Zora Boutique and she requested for a different strap. Here is the result..... mmmm not bad, and it turns out to be a CUTIE BAG!

Managed to sew another two of the same design for my sewing room.


Apart from few goodies, cookies and other accessories that my children bought for me and hubby for the Eid, they remembered my passions of sewing and crafting... here are two beautiful patchwork book by ONDORI and Origami by Tomoko Fuse to add to my collections.

Thanks kiddos.... Abah and Mama always love you all!

I could finished browsing, they jumped to me and requested that I make patchwork bear one each for them ..... oh oh .... guess they must have discussed this way back in BK3.

Lots of beautiful things to sew......and plenty of papers to fold!

DiahRothman's Block 9

For the last block of Morty's I used lavender. Kind of bright compared to the rest. Just changed the columns fabric to enhance them. Wow, soon we are adding the trees and shrubs and all greens will appear!!!! Love all these....

During the fasting month hubby and me had visited our kids at BK3 and we (all girls) had fun searching and hunting for Baju Raya and other stuffs for the celebrations.

Apart from that we had time to discover some treasures at few trifted stores around The Mines area and found these. Great for decoupage.

This salt and pepper shakers are end-stands for my books and template-in-use.

and this beautiful bowl will house my sewing tit-bits and gadgets .

WRIST POUCH...... last but not last!

As usual after sending off hubby to the bus terminal then came home, the sewing room will be my first target. While the washing machine was mumbling and rambling taking over the laundry from me, I was happily sewing and listening to the local radio station - Kedah FM.

Now here is the result.......... Darr, mama have these for you! Are you happy?

Now I am off to the wet market to get some fresh ingredients for the Hari Raya menu tomorrow.......

WRIST POUCH........ enough!

When Amalina left and turn the next block, disappeared from my sight I instantly remembered my girl NIA and have to make one to match her baju raya too (so did Amalina said about her pink pouch)...... Drooling I went and completed this. Just a perfect gift for her..... I knew that she would not read this cos she is soooooo engross with her new 'toy' (not to worry for DARR cos she has three in hand).

P/S Before I could conclude this entry DARR called and told me that she has only TWO, one was given to her cousin, and insisted that I make another two of her own fabric choice.............. now what!!!!!!! GIRLS ARE GIRLS...... COULD NEVER HAD ENOUGH OF ANYTHING.............. Grrrrrrrrrr!
Will make TWO for you Darr..... cos I LOVE you two, three, four, five.....

WRIST POUCH......yet another!

A visitor came this early morning about 7.56am, Amalina, SIKAKITULIS at my sewing room to pick up this .............. she managed to urge me to do one piece of the pouch for her. How could I refused when she sounds like my daughter who was so desperately need one for this 'Eid!

Drive carefully dear..... on her way to Sri Iskandar to collect her sister. And both will proceed to Kuantan............ All my prayer to your safety. InsyaAllah....

LAST ....... just awhile!

I found my long lost friend, Farah Sofiah, few weeks ago......

Few years back......we had been drifted apart and so absorbed with own activities and endless commitments. But the best thing was when she first contacted me, I was fast asleep in BK3 at about 3.25am and the message was she 'found' me through this blog..... how amazing and she placed some order for these two items....... a lappy sleeve and denim patched bag.

Maybe this will be my last sewing and shall wrap up my sewing room for the 'EID'..... (wonder if I will be able to stay away from the sewing machine that long...... :))

Latest news from Akma through her SMS to me today:

"Salam. Semalam dah g amek vaksin tamiflu. Progress bb rayyan ari ni, xdemam, kawal temp by bagi ubat. Selsema ada sikit. Kahak clear, paru2 clear. Alhamdulillah. Hope bb rayyan cepat sembuh. Thanks doakan kesihatan bb rayyan."

We all, together, can just pray for both of them and hope a speedy recovery for baby Rayyan. InsyaAllah.

The HexyGame has made conclusive decision that Akma will be the next hexagons recipient. Hope with this will cheer her up..... Congratulations Akma.....!


We (hubby and I) had a great time last week visiting our children at BK3. During this fasting month I knew that they would love to have their favourites dishes to be on the table at least once.... Nia-Laksa Penang, Darr-Ayam Pedas Kicap and Boy-Hot and Spicy Spaghetti.... all done..... And also we had few shopping trips.... We are now back at Alor Setar.

Before we left for KL, actually I managed to complete this, but the line was down then and could not post here until today.

The Good Ol’ Summertime Mini Quilt Swap

Very soon I will sent this to my swap partner. Since she loves flowers.... and from few of my local batik fabrics, machine appliqued and machine quilted.....this will be hers. I really hope she likes my little bright quilt specially made for her. It measures 22" x 22".
