Our yearly Muslim festival called Hari Raya Aidil Fitri will come soon next weeek on Monday. Of course all of us in Malaysia especially the Muslims have performed their fasting for the whole month of Ramadhan according to Muslim calendar. People start to prepare the celebration with new clothes especially young ladies or boys and girls.The tailors are all busy with their sewing activities including me. one week to the big day, I went to take the sewn dress from the tailor and she said she has 80 more unsewn materials..oh! gosh..how to sew faster..and I also face the same problem of phobia if I will not able to finish my clients' embroidery..what will they say! I hope I can finish soon..or at least those who send two can get one to wear on that special Raya. They wat to show their uniqueness in dressing..this year the ladies more prefer the handmade thread embroidery..I hope they will look different than others..and those who like to wear according to colour theme in the family may do so..as for our family the plan to wear the same colour will often be a failure as my husband will be reluctant to wear the same colour as the rest of the family...hu hu hu..spoil the broth

Last weekend my daughter and I went to Kelantan Trade Center (K.T.C)to see if there were something special to buy. The sale was specially held by the Online Vendors from Kelantan. Wah! I really admire the Kelantan ladies who are indeed very industrious in business. There were many types of stalls like selling Tudung,dresses, blouses and also skincare and make-up stalls. Not only that, the saleswomen were also very beautiful and friendly too. My daughters' friends also set a stall selling Tudung and she said the selling for the day was fantastic as there were so many ladies came to shop for Hari Raya . There were so many choices with unique colour combination...me too bought 3 Tudungs..2 Bawal and 1 Borgitta brand. One day I will also join them to sell handmade embroidery items as there was not even one stall which sell such thing..I think there are still many women who like embroidery and also beads embroidery..wait one day..

When we see embroidery items, we sometimes think twice whether to buy or not to buy..you just look at the handmade embroidery on the table-runner below,,aren't they beautiful for our home decoration?. Yes..I only take pictures/photos but not buying it firstly due to the expensive price..just look at it and start to imagine that I can do it myself! I can look at the design and start doing it soon..

If you have extra lace that you made your dress, do not ever throw it away. You can trim the flowers neatly and put as a finishint to your new dress and you can embellish with some pearl beads plus sequins..I am pretty sure you will be wonderful and do not forget to match it with stunning colours..if you like to use colour block scheme,it is beautiful or you can also be simple and sweet if you use pastel colour or the same colour lace but on lighter or darker tone. Do not use the same colour or else you will waste your sewing time that it cannot even be seen.You can use silver lace or golden on black dress!Now you can enter the ceremony hall conspicuously..You just try my suggestion.. and do not forget to put iron-on crystal or white beads along the edges.You will never know if you never try!Another tip is you can put your waste lace on your plain coloured cushions..yes suddenly you can get nice cushions for your raya or just to renew your old one..ha ha you will be surprised with the result too..happy sewing.
