Wedding Gift for Hardy & Zaza

A week before I gave birth to my baby Alya, managed to finish stitching a wedding gift for a friend of mine, Hardy. Sent the stitched piece to the framer and collected several days later.

Hardy & Zaza's
akad nikah was on 26th November 2005 and the reception is scheduled in Dec (in Johor Bharu). Their akad nikah was held earlier than the original plan/date as Hardy had to leave for Maastricht on 27th Nov and he wanted to bring Zaza along...for honeymoon of course. They are back in Kuala Lumpur (KL) now and will be leaving for Maastricht for a 'new beginning' in late Dec.

** Akad Nikah ~ verbal contract between the bride’s father and the groom and presided by a Kadhi (I snagged this terminology from Adam's blog)

The reason, I didn't upload the pic of framed/stitched piece on my blog earlier was b'coz it didn't reach the recipients yet until my hubby personally handed it over to Hardy when he was in KL on Monday.

I got this sampler pattern from BHG website (sorry I forgot the link). Stitched on 28ct Lugana (colour Colonial Blue) using Six Strands Sweet, Dip&Twist and DMC flosses. I hardly stitch on coloured fabrics except for some earth-coloured/pastel fabrics. And I really like how this 'stitching on blue fabby' turned out. I may stitch more on coloured fabrics next time *wink*

And I have to admit that I've been bitten by a 'heart/love patterns' bug these few months hehehe. I have 3 WIPs of the theme and signed up for 2 of next year's Valentine Exchanges. You will be seeing several more pics of the heart/love theme stitched pieces on my blog in the next few months *wink*

To Hardy & Zaza , wishing you all the best for your new beginning in Maastricht.

Stitching Blogger's Question of the Week

Have you done any charity stitching, been in one, or would like to organize one?

Yes, I have done once - 'Stitching For Love' project. I stitched a quilt square for a little girl.

Thank You

To our families, friends, fellow bloggers, visitors and well wishers

My hubby and I would like to thank you for your best wishes on the arrival of our new baby girl. Alya is 18-days old today and I'm feeling healthier.

Thank you all.
