Gifts for cousins

I would like to share the pictures of gifts for my cousins.

I stitched a simple 'Happy Anniversary' pattern by Maria Diaz for my cousin who just celebrated their 1st anniversary this month. I'm going to hand it personally to her since I'm going back to Kuala Lumpur in early October.

As usual, I made some colour changes to the pattern - I used overdyed flosses for the leaves and pot. This is my 1st time stitching for such occassion i.e. anniversary, wedding, engagement etc

There is another gift for her sister. I missed her birthday last time - I'm actually closer to her sister.

'My cup of tea' - an applique'd piece of a teacup. The pattern is taken from Patchwork & Stitching magazine. It is actually a teacup & teapot pattern for a cushion cover. Since my hubby and I had decided to travel light this time, I only managed to make the teacup aplique' for her so that it won't take up much space in our luggage.

This framed piece is perfect for her hobby corner i.e. singing. She shall put the framed piece beside her karaoke set or maybe she shall hang it at her cubicle in the office *wink*

A very good idea to combine patchwork and stitching
