15. Some of my Favorite Things

Now that my eldest daughter has moved to their new house at Taman Jelita,  I have more time in the afternoons now. I  miss Alif (my only grandson) all the time LOL...but their house  is only 3 kilometres away from mine. So  whenever I  wasn't  visiting him there, I have started to add some more 'DELIGHTS' in  my life.

And that is doing collections...collecting some of my favorite things...

Lately MI has a craze for you can see he he...

or pictures of hens, like these tins..

or English Rose..

and Red..
I am not sure why MI likes this 'Bovril' mug.  It's thick and solid and I don't think I can find it anywhere in town nowadays.  MI have 2 of these cute red Bovril mugs.

They stay on  my shelf near my 'Coca Cola' collections :)

Till then,

Mak isah.

14. My First One

Remember that one day MI want to try doing cross stitch too, besides crochet? I said that in my post here.

Well, right now MI 'doggingly' doing my first one.

The pattern above MI bought from this shop that I posted about here. Cheap, it only cost me RM8.50, including a cross stitch as well.
I want to buy one pattern first and give myself a try.

It is fun and leaves me not aware of time :)

But my effort is only up to here just yet...


Any cross stitch experts who can give me some tips here? :D

Do wish me luck!

Till then,

Mak isah.

13. My Pineapple Doilies' Pattern

Thank you Lady Willow for commenting about my Pineapple Doilies.

At your request, here I post the pattern ( I hope you can read it) as my book is an old one.

The Pattern :)

The pattern is from this old book of mine which I bought many many years ago. I think nowadays they do not produce this type of crochet books anymore. I wish they did though, because the patterns in here are so easy to follow.

I find it is much faster to read the pattern rather than read the instructions.

So, if anyone know if there is still this type of crochet books selling, please do let me know :D

Have a good Sunday Everyone!

Till then,

Mak isah.
