Merry Christmas!

Christmas is drawing near. Today, I finished up
this beautiful Merry Christmas designed by Michelle.
I just love this design. Thanks again Michelle for
sharing this wonderful chart! I stitched using Anchor colors as
I don't have DMC color in my stash, one over one on 32 count
Platinum Belfast Linen. I try my best to choose the Anchor
colors that similar to the suggested colors.




I finished it as a mini pillow.

I do feel Christmas is now just around the corner.
Christmas songs are inescapable in every shopping malls and
retail outlets. From Jingle Bells to Silver Bells. We're in
Ikea yesterday. And christmas spirit does not abide here in Ikano.

Look what I bought at the christmas fair...

Some beautiful ribbons,




and two gorgeous handmade bags.



These four pieces of beautiful christmas coaster
are the free gift that I get from Ikea.



I seize this opportunity to wish you all a very merry christmas
and a fabulous new year. Thanks for popping in and as always
I appreciate all your comments. And also thanks for
sharing all your awesome works!



Cheers!!!!! Merry Christmas!!!!!

Little Teapots

"I am a little teapot, short & stouts,
here's my handle, here's my spout,
when I get all steamed up, I just shout,
tip me over & pour me out!"

"Little Teapots" was designed by me
inspired by my daughter's nursery rhymes.
Stitched on 32 count linen.

It's only half finished but
I just can't wait to show you all this new design!

Hello


Welcome to the blog of a designer who work at home and a SAHM of two beautiful daughters. I've loved reading other people's blogs all over the world so I finally have come to the conclusion and decided to do one of my own and join the blog world! Here I will share all the facets of my day to day life in the home studio as well as my handicraft works. I have ridiculous obsession with counted cross stitching, but this is not a blog exclusively about cross stitching, I have other interests too, like knitting, illustration and reading. Let's see how it goes.
