Rose Quaker Sampler Framed!

I decided to frame this with gold painted frame, maroon soft board with non-reflective glass. 

And yes, the maroon soft board with gold lining, so that the red or brown color motifs stand out perfectly!

Another Rose design?!?!?! Yes, I decided to start Rosey after the huge(at least for me!) Rose Quaker Sampler. Not only stitching the same rose series of project, I have been stitching on the same fabric too. Guess I'm addicted to 40ct fabric. 

Happy stitching!

Rose Quaker Sampler Part 3

I have made some major progress on this piece and I hopefully finish it up in the next couple of days. Looking at the BIG FROG in the middle of it makes me feel sick. I have to work harder, to clear this frog out of my view!

Write soon!

1-Blanket 4-Japan

Things have been very quiet here I know, but very busy behind the scenes. I have been participating in a worthy project "1-Blanket 4-Japan" to help the Japanese earthquake & tsunami victims to overcome a shortage of blankets there. Our club, Rotary Club of Kuala Kangsar is supporting this humanitarian drive, to collect and dispatch  blankets to disaster-hit relief centres in Japan. The 1-Blanket 4-Japan projects end last Sunday, and the item items will be delivered to Japan by the first week of April. We are proud to be a part of the grassroots life-saving effort!
