Short times out....

We, the WI group, had some great time visiting few places in Kuala Lumpur ...... and when all of my friends busy with their shopping spree along Jalan TAR..... I took the opportunity to make a disappearing act to grab these....... :D

And in Melaka, visiting historical venue and monuments and the best place is the MELAKA RIVER CRUISE ride at night......and many other lovely places.

I realized that it differs a lot when me moved with crowds of friends (my first time), than with own family was just so very happenings..... if you get what I mean.... :D

Another patch.... placed

Woke up early this morning
with lots of 'bits and pieces' missing
and 'few' people I dearly love were diminishing.

Though not lonely
I have my Dia Hubby.

Still at the corner of my sewing area
is so serene here

And today......
I am celebrating my 54th birthday.

Quietly......... I am wishing

LEAVING MY SEWING CORNER.... for fish and grapes!

We, hubby and me had a great weekend last Friday (here in Kedah our weekend falls on Friday and Saturday) with a younger BIL#6 with wife (my kids call them Pak and MakTam). We proceeded early morning and headed to BIL#1's rubber plantation at Nami (in Kedah) and stayed for few hours at his lovely house built in between the rubber trees.... mmm.......a beautiful 'hut' just for weekend's drop-by and shelter.... Here I had a nice experience at the freshwater fish ponds manage by both BILs. Lots of different species of fish in cages and we add in few buckets of catfish for us, just nice to harvest later somewhere on 17th December for an occasion....

After Friday prayer, we had lunch and proceeded down to SIK, to have a visit at this fish pond belongs to a group of KOPERASI where we have our supply of baby fishes from.... at Tasik Beris

Then we moved on to Tasikberisgrape vineyard........ oh what a breath taking view (after reading MyBotang Crafty Corner's post with my jaw dropped then) ..... and never believed that here we have such a huge yard too...we spent a couple of hours here...... and bought home some grapes, very sweet, juicy and succulent all....!

I was so contented with the whole trip... and went home tired but very happy and can't wait to have Nia came home the next morning.....

Hexy Sewing Caddy

I fell in love with this caddy for quite sometimes, and today I made one for my little sewing corner......and the best thing is, it is HEXAGON......!

Indeed it is very handy and could organized sewing items neatly and save the cluttering around the sewing table. I love to make few more for 'others' soon.

For those who have the feeling of doing hand-stitching than this is for you and please visit here.

My many thanks to Penny for this beautiful creation of her!
