WHAT A DAY

First of all, I would like to convey my heartiest CONGRATULATIONS to Puan Balkhis and Her Hubby....!

The happiest moment achieved at the starting of a good year was to be abled to do things we love and with someone of the same interest.... can really go mad! Balkhis and me had a wonderful time together yesterday from morning till almost dusk.....

When she came I had two beautiful ladies both from Perak royalty visiting my sewing corner..... After a while when my visitors had left we proceed by doing some embroidery and started talking about her new interest - cross stitching. She showed me her new books and some other gadgets bought from Craft Valley. I was rambling mine too but I can't show her anything in particular since all my works were buried in chest somewhere..... it gets so frustrating when I can't produced mine. So I dug up some precious treasures to let Khis see and well ....the rest were understood...... and I did not realized I have few more and get them completed!

Then we left my house, liked a wrecked ship, and closed the door behind us and heading to town. Firstly to register her name at POPULAR to subscribe the BHG magz and what ever available and she even asked for the back issues too....mmmmm.

To fill up for lunch we went to McD and had some big bites, cold drinks (which made me had my cold-brain several time- owch!) and Khis an ice cream... you should see how she took the delicious creamy thing... how I wish I could do just the same....

Then from here we started our hunting for fabrics.... then to some craft shops to get Aida cloth and DMC floss.... surprisingly few of the sale persons said that now x-stitch are out of seasons..... imagine! Phew! But I recalled, in the early 8thies when my craze for xs was beyond control I used to get my supplies from this particular shop..... I almost dragged Balkhis there.... poor preggy woman..... but her pace was better than mine :)

Lucky enough the tiny craft shop is still existed and everything were there... and best of all we got a good price slashed from everything bought......

Then we came back to my place and continued the embroidered parts, some rompers for her duly arrive baby. A happy Balkhis! To add to all these we called our long lost friend, former instructor from Epal group, MURNIWATI..... she came, so much to tell and hear... so many good and sad stories narrated.... yet we were like 3 stooges battling in own reminiscence....

But we have to go our separate ways .... since it was getting dark outside and promised that we will have another good time again..... soon.
