Autumn Wishes. Halloween Wishes.

I'm giving myself a little break today, since I have been working out every day. Sitting in front of my computer, instead of rushing all my projects, I blog hopping, eBaying and daydreaming!

Not much stitching done on my "Autumn Wishes". But what I can show you is the second house was added into the design ~ the red house. There are four houses in this sampler.


I received this beautiful Halloween card and a very cute little owl ornament along with some sweet treats from my secret pen pal! The owl is so beautifully stitched and so neatly done. She also did a perfect job of selecting the backing fabric for this ornament. I just love it! Thank you so much, Lizzy! Since she wrote a return address on the envelope, so I decided to write her a letter.


I hope you have a fun Halloween.



Happy stitching :)

My Email Account Was Being Hacked by Spammer!

Just a quick note to you all. My existing email account was being hacked by spammer. I lost all my emails in a sudden! This happened after I respond to an "Official email from Yahoo" asking for verification.

To all yahoo email user, please don't respond to this spam sent by "Fake Yahoo Verification"! All your mails will be delete from your inbox and spam messages will send to all of your contacts.


I have 4 new "Failure Notice" messages in my inbox now, but the strange thing is I don't send any email to these 4 persons in these few days. I know this spam was successfully sent from my address to all my contacts. It fail to send to these 4 persons because their address was no longer exist. The "Failure Notice" which sent using my email address by the spammer read:



"Hope you get this on time, I made a trip to Edinburgh, Scotland and had my bag stolen from me with my passport and personal effects therein. The embassy is willing to help by letting me fly without my passport, I just have to pay for a ticket and settle Hotel bills. Unfortunately for me, I can't have access to funds, I've made contact with my bank but they need more time to come up with a new one. I was thinking of asking you to lend me some quick funds that I can give back as soon as I get in. I really need to be on the next available flight.

I can forward you details on how you can get the funds to me.

I await your response!"





If you get such email, just ignore it. Stay away from this scam.

For security reason, I will get another new email account soon.

Autumn Wishes

I have been missing in action for a while in blogland. I just have no time to post and read blogs. Too many things but too little time. I was overloaded with graphic design jobs and houseworks! Dark circles started appeared beneath my eyes now because I haven't gotten enough sleep. Our ex-cleaning lady will not come back due to some family problems. So we planned to hire another new cleaning lady and we have to wait for another 1 to 2 months for her to arrive. I hope you're still with me and will give me some time to catch up with all of you and get back to normal.

Pictures shown here are my latest WIP design ~ Autumn Wishes.



I managed to finished 1/4 part of the design. You can see sheeps, a pumpkin, apple tree and a incomplete house. It has four houses in this sampler. Love working on this piece.

I joined "Secret pen pal" organized by Parsley a month back. Each of us given an address of a participant. The rules are the participants must send a letter each month start from August through December. We must keep our identity secret until the last letter and post on our blog each month about the letter we had received (sorry, I was late posting this, I would like to apologize to my secrat penpal, I know you have been watching my blog several times).

Look what I had receive from Lizzy Penpall. Lizzy is not her real name. She named herself Lizzy because Lizzie Kate is her favorite designer.


I love the purple flowers in this beautiful card.

This month, she sent me a very cute card together with an adorable scarecrow.


Thanks, Lizzy! I love it very much.


He is now sitting on my display shelf.

Four months ago, my husband made a pond from a large plant pot and placed it on our center courtyard. He also bought a small pump and two black molly fishes to set up a fish pond. After few weeks, I was just amazed, because I didn't expect it, seeing our little pond having 8 little baby mollies in it.


And after two weeks, there are more than 20! Everyone in the house were so happy and excited.


Now, you can see a bunch of fishes happily swimming in it.

Until next time, take care and happy stitching!

Well, today, I had done the model stitching

update my blog since two months ago.
I missed all of you and your beautiful blog.
My cleaning lady has gone back to her
homeland due to working permit was due.
I have to do all the housekeeping
jobs all by myself and have to get my
graphic design works done before I pick up
my daughters from kindergarten every weekdays.
I have contacted my cleaning lady last week
and happy to hear that she will be back to us
on September.

When time allowed, I do stop by some of
my favorite blog for quick reading but time not
allowed me to leave comment;
I feeling so bad. Please give me some time,
I will catch up and comment on your post soon.

About stitching work, I worked on my latest
design "Kitchen Prayer" 10 minutes per day.
Hope I could take some pictures to show
on my next post.

I wish everyone have a wonderful month. :)

Christmas Angel & A New Start

I have completed my first Christmas
pattern design.



Christmas Angel

This design took me longer than I expected
because I was too busy on my graphic design
works in order to meet the deadline.

What's next? I have a new design idea last week.
I has spent few hours on the first draft.



Some part of the design are reproduction from
an antique washcloth; I start stitching the model
in last weekend and it looks good.

Other than that, I was so please to received many
emails from some bloggers and readers who are
interested to purchase some of my designs;
I start working on my selling blog where I could
sell all my designs and I wish I can launch my
selling blog soon.

Where ever you are, thank you for visiting my
little blog. Until next time. Hope you are
having a great week. Hugs and love.
