Dates to remember

Today, 13.12.2012.

Today is my Pa's 89th birthday. Usually on his and Ma's birthday, we will call to wish them happy birthday. But tis year, we can't.

My Pa passed away on 21.11.2012 and our beloved Ma passed away on 10.9.2012. I believe my Pa must have missed my Ma so much when she pass away. And now we miss them both dearly. They were both great parents, great FIL n MIL and beautiful grandparents. Love u Ma n Pa. Both of u were always around for me during my ups n downs. And even after I am married with kids, I'm still your little girl. No words can describe my feelings.

Al-Fatihah, semoga roh ibubapa ku di cucuri rahmat dan ditempatkan bersama sama orang orang yang beriman. Amin.. Walaupun redha ngan permergian mereka tapi.........

Its been a year since i last update my blog. Cobwebs are everywhere in my blog. hehehehe.....I'm just too lazy to update my blog.

So today, I put away my laziness for awhile, just to share with my dear friends something that i bought from Daiso. I find it useful especially to keep my HDT and ribbons. I think, its a bit costly but i still purchase it every week when i go to Diaso (buy 2 packets each time, so don't feel the pinch. hehehe....). Just for info, Daiso also sells threads which i think it can use for tatting. Its have size 20 and 40. Also they have a wide selection of craft making.

Manage to complete another WIP, Clover Leaf Doily by Linda S Davies. I used the thread, Altin Basak that Ulla gave me. Thanks Ulla for the threads. I havent't block it yet cos i find it abit difficult, my edgings are curly-wurly. Is it becos of my chains n rings are too tight. But will try again to block it.

OK la for now. Need to take a rest, can only do light stitching cos recently i had tennis elbow. Mayb mine shud be call stitching or FB elbow. Ouch!!!

till then.........

Time Flies - March 2010

Phew! Its already the month of March, quarter of the year. Time really flies. This year my son will be sitting for his SPM exams and I'm having jitters, cold feet, butterflies in the stomach......funny ye, he sits for the exam and me having all tis.

Lately I have not been stitching much. Why, eh? Well, in early January 2010, my hubby manage to secure a Kiosk (not petrol kiosk, tak mampu) at JB Sentral, Johor Baru selling foodstuffs like sweets, candies, biscuits, dried and preserved fruits etc etc(some of the foodstuffs are pack by tis beautiful fingers. hehehe.....prasan). It operates from 8am til 10pm.

The kiosk is run by my eldest doter and a friend during the weekdays. So during the weekends, my hubby and me will take care of it. And sometimes my youngest doter and son will help out. So for those who are passing by, feel free to stop at our Kiosk No.7.

So when I'm there, I'll bring along my Tatting stuff. So I manage to finish tis piece of 2009 wip. Hope to finish more of my WIPssssss.

It's the Arches doily using the Flora Size 20. The pattern is by Marilee, the Yarnplayer.

Here's a little bit of JB Sentral.
JB Sentral is like KL Sentral, but bigger i think. (Have to check it out).JB Sentral is located near Jalan Tun Abd Razak. It is located near to Johor Bahru Customs Immigration Quarantine Complex(CIQ) and the Sultan Iskandar Complex. It is also located near to Johor Bahru City Square (there is a bridge in between the two buildings). So whoever takes a bus to Singapore or taking a bus from Singapore will definitely pass thru JB Sentral.

So til then, happy 'crafting'
