Fook (Fu) Cross Stitch for Valerie Lee, the Confinement Lady

Valerie, my confinement lady whom I engaged from Peiling Confinement Services Center. My experience with Peiling was a nightmare. My husband and I have a big fight with Peiling staff just a day before I am going for Cesarean. We went to the center to check out who is going to be my confinement lady. Guess what, the staff told me that they are not able to tell me whom my confinement lady is and I don't need to know who she is. They told me this is the company 'policy'. Can you believe, as a customer (I am paying RM5000 for the services) I do not have the right to choose who to be my confinement lady nor to even know her name until the day when I pick her up from the center. Gosh!

Blessing in disguise, Valerie, she is hardworking, kind, responsible, quick action. I don't even need to go to kitchen at all. Hah... I am being served like a queen :)

Look, she even potty train my baby at 1 week old.

Without her help, I don't think I can finish my cross stitch (for Dr Ng) within a short 2 weeks, phew...

She loves my cross stitch very much. So I offer to stitch her something. She request for a 'Fook' (Luck), immediately I design my every own pattern and finish it within a week.

Hi May,

That's a very pretty fook word. Where did you get the pattern? I have this 8 aida count red fabric ( I know it's huge!) and don't know what to do with it. Your post gave me the idea. Please let me know where I can buy the pattern. Thanks.

Thanks LFC. Honestly, my confinement lady would like me to stitch her a 'Fu' but in the short period of time (less than 2 weeks before she finish her services), I have no idea where to source for the 'Fu' chart. So, I designed one.

I am happy that you love my design :) You gave me the inspiration to design 'Lu', and 'Shou' now... till then, happy stitching.

Thanks May for the pattern. You are so innovative. It's the perfect size for my fabric. Can't wait to work on it this weekend.

Thanks again,

Hi May,
Thanks again for the FOOK chart. I finished 2 FOOK in 3 days. My partner like it very much. I'm looking forward for more Chinese word chart from you.
Thank you so much.

Hi Dorothy,

You are welcome. I hope you and your partner will like the next Chinese character that I am going to share it soon... 'Jia' - Family.

I design 'Jia' for my sister as the house warming gift. Hope to get it done by end of this week.

Regards,
May
