Linen oh linen

I did this piece in 2004 n it only took me 3 months to complete... wow... I must have had a lot of time on my hands then. I probably didn't have to do so much running around then!
This was my first piece that I did on linen...it's called Delightful Daffodils. Do I even have to mention the designer hehe...
Why did I convert to linen? Well at that time it was sooo hard to find the smaller sized aida. When browsing the internet I noticed that most of the 'mat sallehs' stitched on linen n the finishing looked so nice, so I decided to give linen a try...
N I haven't looked back since.... somehow the feel when stitching on linen is different, I just love it!! It hasn't helped my eyes tho.... who knows i might just have to go n buy a magnifying glass next!

Another busy weekend...


It was another busy weekend for me... but it was fun!
Friday afternoon we packed our bags n went to Awana Kijal. We got there around maghrib, unpacked, had a shower n headed for the restaurant near the pool to eat. This place serves the best pizza n we were looking forward to it (my husband is not into pizza but even he can say that it's nice)...but the place was closed for maintenance....
So we did the next best thing n headed for KFC kat the shop houses in front of the hotel... haha we were hungry n needed food real bad...
Then on Saturday we headed to Cherating... of course we had to stop for roti bakar at Kemaman n not forgetting the delicious otak-otak. Ooh the food is so good... that's why we love going to these two places....

My little one...

My little one is not so little anymore... she turned 8 on Sunday...
Normally we just have have some makan2 n invite family over but this year she wanted to invite her friends... she is such an undemanding child that i could not say no to her.

So last week was busy busy busy. Had to look for stuff for party packs, decide on what games to
play n when there's games there has to be gifts. So there was a lot of running around last week but at the end of the day it was worth it when the birthday girl was all smiles n happy...
