Love Hearts

I stitched Love Hearts by Loopylou Designs with different colour way. In the website, the pattern is in purple theme. I've done hardanger before but I found this pattern is rather tricky. Been through some froggings before I could proudly show it to my hubby.

Paid my dues - part II

I sent 2 ornaments to Adam in England - my 3rd Pay-it-Forward recipient. The extra goes to his significant other who is currently pursuing her PhD.

The 1st ornament - I stitched a chinese character for happiness. I chose the plum blossom print as the finishing fabric. Plum blossom is the symbol for courage and hope.

The 2nd ornament - I stitched Heart in Hand's Study Hard on 18ct navy aida. I actually backstitched 'Business' & 'E-commerce' for the books titles.


Paid my dues - part I

On Friday, I sent out the stitched gifties to my Pay-it-Forward recipients. They are all residing in Europe - Outi in Finland, Anja in Germany and Adam in England. To my surprise, it actually took less than a week for a mail from Malaysia to arrive in Europe countries.

I made a stitched sachet for Outi in Finland. stitched Elizabeth's Designs' For a Dear Friend on aida band.

As for Anja in Germany, I made a stitched sachet - the pattern is an excerpt from Lady of the Castle designed by Ruth Ann Russell of C Street Samplerworks. I saw this pattern in Just Cross Stitch magazine June2006.
