A little late start for 2015

Overall the year twenty fourteen has been a great year for me & my family. First of all, health wise – specially my three kids were in good health..alhamdulillah, im taking no admission to hospital is a good indication.

Secondly, in October we finally say goodbye to our former apartment and move to our new crib. Location wise it is still within city and amenities is easily accessible. One major thing we all agreed is we got a bigger space for five of us. I’ll say its never too late to move to a new place even when kids have grown up abit..in fact, it has made life somewhat easier as the process of cleaning up, packing and the moving day – we as family were very involved in every step of the way. Admitly, we all do miss our old house as it shared many memorable moments and more so it was our first family house. Kids misses the pool! That’s the only one bit the new place is lack. But we told kids, we can always come back and go for a dip in the pool.Currently, we are refurnish the old pad to make way for rental.

Finally, among the highlight I like to remember in 2015 – my husband & I travel trip to London & Paris (sans kids). It wasn’t in the plan, husband received on a short notice to go Londres for work and asked me to tag along. I was abit reluctant at first to leave the kids as we never be apart that long (2 weeks + trips) and at the furthest place. Anyhow, husband and my mom convinced me they’ll be alright under my parental supervision and long story short – we had our first couple holiday in after 8 years!! The trip reminded us again to be husband & wife , and I’m glad we did make the trip.

In this coming twenty fifteen, my only wish is to continue to become the best wife,mom, daughter and be bless from Allah swt. Ameen.

First Day Dress (pattern by Dana)

This would be my second time purchased Dana’s patterns. The first was Kid shorts. What I like most about Dana’s  pattern is her detail instructions with lots of clear how-to photos which makes it easy to understand & visualise too. The simplicity of the pattern which incorporated with variety of styles (both her shorts and dress/top) are a huge bonus! Totally a plus points for any sewist to buy her patterns!

Anyhow, here’s a two dress top I made for my eight years old daughter, Mia.


A simple dress top using plaid . Turns out quite well! Rockin’ her top at the new Spotlight store recently open in Malaysia.

Here’s another dress top with peplum style I make for her the following day. Yes, the pattern is so easy you can’t stop at making only one! 🙂

If only my hobby could turn into a full time job, I wanna sew this all day long. Someday perhaps uh? heh

Until then, bye peeps!

My baby girl turns EIGHT!

In case you hadn’t notice , my three kid’s birthday are close by. And September 9th, was my daughter – Mia who just turns eight years old. Wrote her a card with lots advice and hopes and dreams for her.. when asked, “do you understand what mommy wrote in there” ” Yes Mommy !” and she smiled. Later on, as I was cleaning up the kitchen and washing dishes, she came from my back and hugged me real tight “I loveeee you Mommy” That feeling..is the best feeling ever. I feel so blessed and thankful for a wonderful daughter.

Love you Mia Aisha.. LillahiTaala
