Day 99, invicible.

Assalamualaikum…

“In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invicible love. 

In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invicible smile. 

In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invicible calm.

I realized, through it all, that… In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invicible summer.
And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger, something better, pushing right back.”

Day 97, dream

Assalamualaikum…

I dreamt of my late father last night, and the night before too. In my dream, he just sat on the wheelchair watching us. And last night I told him, mom misses him very much. Everyone does, but Mom miss him badly. He just sat there with a sad face. 

I guessed he is missing us too. People keep telling me that life goes on, but to me, that is the saddest part. May you rest in peace, bapak. Al-Fatihah…

Shine bright like a diamond

Assalamualaikum

If you remember this photo I have posted long long time ago… back in 2015 (end of the year) if I am not mistaken. This is the beginning of me falling in love into Diamond Drills set. Yeah, I chose Frozen design because back then, I would like to give it to Amani as her birthday present. 

However, making it would not as easy as peanut! Took a lot of times and efforts to ‘drilled’ the diamond onto the chart. There were thousands of them, with colour codes and patterns. 


So on and off I was struggled hard to finish it. Finally, early of this year I have completed the Frozen Diamond Drills. Phew! Yeah, that was a big PHEW! from me. Hahaha. 😂

This is my satisfaction. 

Cross Stitch Love Note

Assalamualaikum

Last month I had joined a #csmlovenote swap organised by the Cross Stitch Malaysia group. The task is to complete any cross stitch with the theme of Love Note. Each of us would assigned to one swap partner. 

I decided to frame it with embroidery hoop. Unfortunately I made a mistake by cutting the cloth too small for the hoop size. So I cover it with yellow felt and glued the diamond stickers on top of it. What do you think?

 In return I received a bunch of love! She gave me the biscornu pin cushion, crochet purse, aida cloth and cross stitch kits. How generous. Thank you, Minn. 

Imagine.Remember

Assalamualaikum

Amani really loves to draw. Every drawing, she would tell me her own story. This picture is about a doll in a box. 

This picture tells about her dream house. Yeah, I noticed that she always draw a house, her double storey – colourful – dream house. There she was, playing with her cat Jojo, and her friend from school Am. The green building is the shopping complex with lift. 

Recently she drawed her family portraits. That’s true. There was Abah, Mama, Usu, Nek Mak and to my surprised she even drawed her late grandfather ‘Nek Bang’ . I asked her, why Nek Bang like that? She told me, Nek Bang is sleeping in the grave. He wore white cloth. 😥 I couldn’t even hold my tears. My daughter really understand the real situation eventhough she is just 5 years old. She must be missing her grandfather so much.
