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.
