Quick Update

This is just a quick update to let you know my progress on WIPs.

1. Moms Loves You © Rub-A-Dub-Dub by Leisure Arts

This design is for my son's room. To be frank, I'm a bit lazy to finish the wordings and backstitches, as there are so many new projects are waiting for me.

2. Welcome Blue Birds; The Cross Stitcher August 2002

Arghhhh....What's a sad news! The blue birds suddenly changed to brown. It's due to a serious computer problem(it's what I can relate to that), the charts have a discrepancy in thread legend in that it shows wrong DMC colors used in each motif.'s my mistake too, I should have double checked the original design before I start stitching.

Happy Halloween to all!

It's amazingly fast! I received my orders today, which I ordered online a week ago.

They are Rose Quaker Sampler by Stickideen von der Wiehenburg and buttons by Just Another Button. The buttons are actually for Valentine Medley by Heart in Hand Neddleart, which I had finished stitching long time ago. I will post the completed projects with the buttons very soon.

It is my first time to purchase design by Wiehenburg. The pattern is endorsed with green stamping and gold signature. It feels so personal to me.

I'm back!

Can't imagine it's been two years plus since my last post. A lot of things happened between this two years, I got married, delivered a baby boy, moved to a new house...etc, of course I did stitch on few projects too.

I finished the Lover Pillow last two years, but only completed it last week :) It didn't end up as pillow as it called. I planned to replace french knots with black glass beads initially, but it failed to match the entire design. So continue stitching french knots.

I just managed to complete a design during my pregnancy last year. I sent this design to frame up couple of weeks ago, plan to place this at my study corner.

Design: Salon de lecture by Anne Sohier-Fournel
Fabric: 32ct Belfast Linen - White
Thread: DMC
I would like to show you few other designs that framed at the same framing shop of my friend.
