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!
