Forever Friends - The Big Day

I am so excited to share with you this first ever Forever Friends chart of mine. The kit comes with a transparent bag, Anchor floss, chart and Aida 14 count.

While I am looking for a flame, I stumble upon a second hand shop - Cash Converter, where they sell many used items including photo frames. I was quite lucky to find one which it only cost me RM5.00.

To complete my project, I use the gift wrapping paper for the finishing touch.

House warming gift for Susan - 28 breeds of dog

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
It took me nearly 1 year to finish this 28 breeds of dog which I have combined 3 separate charts from Jeremiah Junction into 1 piece- I Love Dogs 1, 2 & 3 into a single piece artwork. It is almost 5ft long!

My initial plan is to have it stitch and hang it in my living hall. But after thought, I think I should give it to someone who loves dog.

When Susan (my sister in law) told us that she is moving to another house, and invite us to visit her in Singapore. Without hesitation, I gave it to her as the house warming gift. I believe she is the most rightful person to have this, because she is an extremist dog lovers.

Susan, me and her pet dog - Bissue (mixed of Dalmatian & Boxer)
You would notice spots on her neck, face, and paws. A very intelligent dog.

Another Cross Stitch Baby Pillow Case - English Spaniel

Just finished another baby pillow case. No particular reason why it is ‘E’, just English Spaniel is one of my favorite dog breed.

Haha… still haven’t done any for baby bolster case. Maybe a mini blanket?

'Baby Sleeping' Pillow Case

Last night I was packing my room while searching for some old stuff i.e. baby cloths, napkin, etc (hehe… I am preparing for my coming new born) and I found this.

I remember it was 3 years ago, I made this pillow casing for my son, Riker when he was a baby. And now, he is almost 4, this Sept 2008. How time flies!

This morning, before sending Riker to school, I took a photo of the pillow case. He was watching quietly beside me and was curious why I am taking photos of the pillow case. So without any sign, he made a contribution to my photo - his little fingers.

Cross Stitch Alphabet Baby Animals A-Z

I have not think of what should I do with these Charts that I made. Should I make it a blanket for my Son or a bedsheet cover?

I always curious and wanted to know is it a good idea to make it a windows curtain, will the threads colour fading off one day?

Does anyone has better idea to share?

A Birthday Card for my father in law; Paul Si

A simple and yet a special Birthday Card for my father in law.
It took less than 1 hour to finish; my very own design.

I always think that giving a present without a greeting card seem meaningless. No matter what celebration and festival, I will not miss sending greeting card to my husband, my family, and my friends. If time permit, I will definitely do it myself.

A gift for Mother's Day

I make this chart back in year 2004. It was a gift for my mother-in-law on Mother’s Day.

I still remember that my mother-in-law was so happy and grateful when she received the gift from me. She was so proud of me and she repeatedly shown it to all her guests/friends. Though, she has no longer with us… but she is always in my mind.

I miss those days that we share our hobbies together. We do stitching in the same hall, sitting side by side. She loved Cross Stitch, Crochet, Patch Work as much as I do. She was a very capable women. She could stitch, tailor, sew, and cook.

She was a great mom!!

Tiger for a good friend farewell

Martin Farfan (an Argentina guy, beside him is my colleague- Uma) was my mentor, my trusted friend, my counselor when I first joined Shell. We were working closely together in the Software Management / Compliance areas.

For me, I find him simple; a guy that willing to share anything about his personal life, his work principles, and even his lunch. I’ve learned a lot from him especially the way he valued friendship.

Sadly, after a year later, his contract has come to end. He decided to move on his career to Oman.

I remember he told me once during our interview session, that he is passionate about Tiger.

Before he left Malaysia, we had a farewell party. I stitched him a Tiger chart and framed with the Royal Selangor pewter photo frame.

Later I received his call, he told me that he is very grateful, and couldn’t believed that I still remember about the Tiger he told me .... Hah…

Lovely pink dress stitched with an excavator, a cement truck, and a bull dozer

When I knew my niece loves heavy machinery, without hesitation, I stitch an excavator, a cement truck, a bull dozer and embedded on a lovely pink dress. I gave it to her as the Chinese New Year gift.

Later, I found out from my Bro, that she loves the dress so much so that she refuse to take it off. And, she goes to bed with the dress.

Unfortunately, I didn’t managed to take a picture of her with the dress… maybe I will ask my Bro. I will definitely share with you all if there is any.
