MYS 2006 Exchange final round - part 2

I received a sewing pouch for this round! Lovely stitched by Margaret. Ladybugs and Bumblebees by Country Cottage Needleworks - my favourite design.

Thank you Margaret for the pouch and the needle card. An adorable piece of lace on the pink felt caught my eyes. It is a crochet-like cotton lace.

For the final round, I have to stitch a sewing pouch. Ooopss! You might not knowing of what I'm talking about. Click here

I stitched a sewing pouch for Angie. It was my first time of such finishing and I struggled a bit to finish it off.

Bonnet & Tulips in Pots by Mosey 'N Me Design is stitched on pale yellow 14ct aida using DMC and Anchor variegates flosses. Sunbonnet Sue is one of my needlecraft favourites. The size of this sewing pouch is approx 7.5" X 5.5". I used black velcro for the flip-styled closure and inserted 2 pieces of matting board to give the sewing pouch a firmer 'body'.

Winter Mail Art from Zarina

It has been quite sometime, no update here. I was preoccupied with activities besides stitching. Family & relatives visits, weddings to attend and outing with friends (and stitching friends too!) etc. Personally I have to say, being back in the big city made my life busier yet enjoyable. Hubby & I did a lot of catching-ups with families and friends. And the kids enjoyed it too.

Here I would like to share some pics of Winter MA I've received earlier this month.

Snowman from Lizzie*Kate Stamp-It January 2005 stitched on 28ct lugana. I simply love the matching fabric - snowflakes print and the batik post stamps. It made this Winter MA much more adorable !

Thank you Zarina for such a lovely Mail Art as well as the silk flosses that you put in the MA.
