Another casserole dish carrier......?

Started these before the fasting month came and as per to date managed to complete only one..........!

This version of the casserole dish carrier is slightly different with an additional of small white laces adorning the round edge. Will apply the same to the other 5 pieces, most probably. And time will decide when all of these to get completed..........!

Hey Diah, you really have to sit and sew..................!!!

Zakat and Sadakah

Not much on sewing lately....... and I was not at my sewing corner most of the time.

This holy fasting month was filled with lots of gathering...... to complete the Qur'an recital for the blessings and reward and more on night prayers.......

We had few small function and social activities though for giving away Zakat and Sadakah with some amount collected from our WI members to be shared with the needy, tahfiz orphanage students, disaster relief personal, Widow/orphanage child and few others.

The small gathering was held at Puan Hajah Cik Gayah residence (in yellow tudung) with few committee members to help things out.

On the same day, our second venue was at a small village, in Alor Setar still. Here majority, came the old folks and some with poor health problems......

Khatam Al-Quran

We end the daily Tadarus Al-Qur'an reciting with a little du'a and small gathering at Puan Hajah Khadijah's place. This ceremony is known as the Khatam Al-Qur'an. It was simple, but we were all syukur that we got through and stay healthy and could withstand the fasting month like previous years.......

InsyaAllah, may we gather again in many more years to come.....

This beading programme involved me as a whole..... This was held on the 29th July, a few days before the fasting month. Organized by the same organisation, Majlis Pembangunan Wanita dan Keluarga, chaired by Puan Sharifah Maznah and was held at Dewan Nur.

As the technology provider for this programme, it took me two weeks for the whole preparation and to coach two girls to assist me..... apart from getting items and designs to suit the beginners and intermediate beader in one go........!

Alhamdulillah, we managed, with the help from Intan and Shifa....Thanks girls!

Another WI activities was Acara Memancing held on the 16th July. This event took a week's preparation...... but all was worth the effort since everyone was enjoying...just like a family day!!!

Far behind, is our WI President's resident Puan Hajah Siti Rohani and this fish pond belongs to her husband, Tuan Haji Ibrahim.

Everyone won some little token and the fishes they caught went home with them too...... Hubby and I had no fish to carry home since we were on duty..... :D

Look at this pic...... just can't figure out, what this beautiful couple were trying to catch...... Tuan Haji Ahmad and wife, Hajah Khadijah.

It arrives.......

This awaits when I came home from the qur'an recital sessions with friends today. The parcel that I have been waiting for almost 3 months... but it was worth them all.

This is the quilted fabric basket, made for a SWAP organized by Michele Foster of Quilting Gallery few months back. It came from Jacquelyn Morris-Smith of Arizona, USA, my swapee..... She includes other goodies, a table mat and mug rug, a little notes and some business cards. I love them all, Jacquelyn..... and thanks a heap for all these lovely items and the beautiful fabric basket...:)

If dear reader ever wonder how was mine..... please visit Marta, who keeps my basket safely in her home...... :)
