Salam and hi!
I can't even begin to tell you how much I miss writing on my blog and of course missing connecting with you! As of now, my studies have totally overtaken my life, virtual and real alike. When I discovered that my final exam will only ends on the 3rd of January 2012, the one thing that crossed my mind - there goes my new year celebration. Not that I am going to party and such, but I have plans for Lovemelots Creations as the new year begin. Oh well, come to think of it, I have the whole year to do it, no big deal. Right now, I would like to just welcome 2012 with open arms :)
2011 had been a roller-coaster of events for me personally. The memories of my late baby sister, her battle with cancer and how we finally lost her in May, will forever be engraved in my mind. I remember her constantly, very vivid memories of her smiles and laughter and her painful cries during her long stay in the hospital - all criss-crossed my mind especially after daily prayer. Tears still flow but there's nothing I could do other than praying that Allah would grant her jannah and cherish the life I still have with my beloved little family, alhamdulillah...
On the sewing front - oh wow...I think I have sewn many more dresses in 2011 compared to before. Almost all sewing had been for my wonderful customers and friends over at Lovemelots Creations. I thank you with all my heart for your trust and support of me. I will only be able to resume sewing after my finals though and I hope 2012 will offer you more new & exciting designs from Lovemelots. Here are some highlights of 2011 sewing :
This Tuesday will be my last exam for this semester, after that I will have a 2 weeks inter-semester break which I am really looking forward to. We planned a small getaway and later I hope to come back refreshed and all geared up to sew away!
I will be back in school mid-January for my final semester. It will be a light one as I only have 1 course (compared to 4 this semester) and writing of my project paper research. God willing, if everything turns out well, I will be graduating in May and then I would have to go back to my old life - a full time working mom. Hmmm...I forgot how that was, we'll see.... :)
So my beautiful friends, here's wishing you a wonderful and blessed 2012. May this be another happy year for you and the family, from me and my girls *hugs*
