Memories of Malalysia, Deeplavali

While we were in Malayasia, the country was gearing up for Deeplavali. Deepavali, or Diwali, is a five-day Hindu festival that begins on the shortest day of the year during the period between mid-October and mid-November. Deepavali celebrates light overcoming darkness and is also known as the Festival of Lights.

Deepavali is mainly a family celebration, and but we got to see some beautiful kolams.

The kolam is an intricate design on the floor made from coloured rice and colored powder. Kolams are mainly at the entrance to the shopping malls.

We saw a few in KL and one in the foyer of the Gurney Plaza, Georgetown.

In Georgetown.

Sew Sweetness Rad shorts size 5

A simple pair of Rad shorts in size 5 for Mr J made from gifted fabric. The pattern is from Sew Sweetness but it is very similar to the Dana Made It Shorts. It is a simple style with an elastic waist.  I feel like I should have done more with these, like maybe a contrast trim rather than blue, but they will be fine for everyday wear.
