weekend project - pincushions

well...it was a busy weekend for me....on Sat. 18th...was another get-together at Nor Amar's house...but this time...it was sewing cum carpentering (hubbies) and birthday party ....just image how busy we were....more on eating..whatelse !!!
would love to thank our host Nor..for such a lovely food (rosemary rice and mee bandung..)it was yummmmmy!!

and on Sunday..it was my eldest son Aliff's 19th.birthday...no celebration tho'...Aliff is going back to Malacca today...for his final exam...good luck !!
we decided to go back Banting before Aliff go back to Malacca...again had a yummy lunch..but this time kampung style...lemak cili padi ayam...hati ayam goreng jawa style...sambal tumis kerang...ikan masin...masak tumis air batang keladi...sambal kelapa with ulam pucuk raja...sambal belacan with mempelam...
simply the best especially my MIL's cooking....fingers licking good!!


well as usual..while we were there...me and my nieces (Jasmin and Ariessya) found a lovely project to make....Spring Chick pin-cushion from the latest BHG CC spring 2009...
Jasmin has put her effort in making this chicks...from tracing the templates...cutting...sewing ...and stuffing the chicks....then the group became bigger when...Linda came over to see our progress ...then came A.Ani joining the crowd.....by the end of the day....we make 6 chicks ....



but...my evening does not end there....then came my sis in-law Liza... pestering to make another pin-cushion...still the same magazine as a reference ...she wanted to sew a sweet pin-cushion Sweet Slice...so my weekend end up with these lovely pin-cushions... pink spring chicks, brown sweet slice, bright red xegon and lovely pink square (which i make earlier)....what a day..!
