My Daughter
My Daughter.... turns 17 today....uwah...I feel like crying! They grow up sooo fast...It seems like only yesterday when she was born....I can still feel the labour pains. haha...

Last year when she turned 16, people asked me... how do u feel? She's 16... so I replied biasa aje! But somehow this year rasa sedih pulak.. maybe cos it's her last year in school.... or maybe cos
she's old enough to learn how to drive....but no no no....only after SPM!!!

But they do grow up so fast.... so spend the time that you have with them the best that you can, so that you won't have any regrets later on...

So to my dear daughter.... Happy Birthday..May all your hopes and dreams come true....

I managed to finish the sampler on time and got it framed too. I'm quite pleased with the end result and I love the frame...

I also included 2 close up photos.... kalaulah nak tengok haha!

Siapa RJ?

That was the question people were asking last week after reading blog cik adik manis kita...

It's me, it's me.... haha....

When I first read the entry in her blog I naturally assumed that the cushion was for her abang
fedex... Then when people started asking siapa rj, it suddenly occured to me that that was my
initials! Lepas tu start le perasan... could it be for me... and it was...yay!

Thank you very, very much Mus...I really,really like it... the workmanship is marvellous, pandai Mus jahit zip tu, tak macam beginner pun.

My favorite...

This piece is called a Heartfelt Invitation... It's taken from the book Quilts of the Garden. I did
this a few years ago and it is one of my favorite PV pieces!
The pattern is not too hard cos there are not too many floss changes...


Yesterday pulak buat Karipap Pusing.... me memang suka karipap pusing ni. Masa dulu2 selalu tolong my grandma buat... tapi dia tak ikut resipi.... main campak2 aje! So after many many years I decided to try and buat.... this is what it looks like...


Masa canai tu frust jugak cos tak nampak sangat dia punya line2 tu... but after digoreng baru nampak...happy sangat cos menjadi. Tak rugilah duduk dapur berjam-jam! Me also ambik kesempatan to ajar kakak kelim tepi karipap tu...oklah dia buat for a beginner!

This is the recipe....from cari.com

Spiral Curry Puff (Speedial)

Ingredients

For water dough:

200g plain flour

125ml water mix with a pinch of salt

1 tbsp shortening

For oil dough:

200g plain flour

100g shortening

To make water dough:Place flour in a mixing bowl. Rub in shortening and add in the water. Knead into a smooth dough.leave aside to rest for 10 minutes. Divide into 24 equal portions.

To make oil dough:Rub shortening or margarine into the flour to form an oily dough. Divide into 24 equal portions.

To combine into pastry:Wrap oil dough inside water dough. Flatten the dough and roll up. Repeat the process. Cut the rolled-up dough into two. Use a rolling pin to press it flat. Shape into a circle. Add filling and seal the sides. Pinch the edges to form a scallop design. Deep fry puffs in medium hot oil.
