A Partridge In A Pear Tree

It was real rain with some thunder boomers
since past week, so I'm more alive and happiest (LOL).
I finished my xmas design I started two weeks ago. Now,
my illustration has been adopted into this cross stitch sampler.

The first day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree


A Partridge In A Pear Tree Sampler
The Twelve Days of Christmas Series



The model is stitched on 28-count Vintage Country Mocha
linen with DMC threads and Weeks Dye Works Deep Sea.

My original idea is to design a simple xmas ornament
without the alphabets and borders, but it turns out
great after I added the borders around the design and
alphabets on it. The piece become bigger and bigger
and it didn't look like an ornament anymore,
and I don't want a giant xmas ornament to hang
on my xmas tree! (LOL).

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. Thanks for
stopping by and as always I do appreciates all
your beautiful comments and encouraging words.
And also thanks for sharing all your awesome works!

Together we stitch.

Spring

I finished designing and stitching "Spring"
last week, and done with the beads yesterday.




Flowers around the house. Colorful butterflies flying away
and bird in the tree. The days of spring are here.


Here is my third piece of original design.

The weather is extremely hot here. Generally,
I don't like it when the weather is extremely hot,
I get too tired, grouchy and grumpy in the heat,
I am more alive and happiest when it's cold especially
during rainy days. Other than staying inside a room with
air conditioning, what comes to my mind now are some
stitching for Christmas as a way to cool down. (LOL)
I hope I can show you some progress of my
original Christmas cross stitch design on my next post.

I went to my best friend's wedding dinner last weekend
and I have some beautiful pictures to share with you.



The environment is nice and ambience.


Love the decor with beautiful flowers and


lighting candles creates a romantic dining environment.

I received a package in the mail the past week.
It's a beautiful handkerchief case from Rachel
all the way from Belgium. She also included
a beautiful thread. She know I love purple.


Thank you so much Rachel, I just love it.


Look at this handkerchief case that
she sent. It's so beautiful and lovely. I love
both the outer and inner fabrics of this case.
She is a talented quilter and crocheter. She love
to do beautiful crafts and I adores all her
creative works. If you have never visited
Rachel's blog, go have a visit.

I won a giveaway from Terri last month ago.
So sweet of she to made something special for me
to go along with the package 6 weeks ago.
I am still waiting for the package and worrying
the package was lost. Me and Terri have never
expected it would take this long to reach here
from US. It's usually takes 3 to 6 weeks
shipping time. I do hope the package is still with
the custom or post office due to some checking delay
but not losing it. I willing to wait for more weeks
or even months as long as the package is not being
steal or lost. Because it contains Terri's
beautiful crafts.

Happy stitching everyone. And thanks for stopping by
and as always I appreciate all your comments.
And also thanks for sharing all your awesome works!
