Earthenware Soup Tureen from Strasbourg

I have stitched this for a long time but haven't managed to frame it up yet. (I was waiting to put it in my own home, maybe in the kitchen). There are 3 Earthenware Soup Tureen altogether which I got this pattern from http://www.dmc.com/. I am planning to do the other 2.... One is still in progress. Hopefully I can complete the whole set this year....hihi.

Four Ballet Bears

I have stitched this 4 Ballet Bears for a long time.......I couldn't remember when but I think it was 7 years ago when I was pregnant with my eldest son Amin.


I thought of putting it in his room, but however... soon have forgotten about it.......and I was waiting until I get a baby girl of my own. That will be perfect in a girls' room instead of a boy right?


Now my eldest is 7 years old..who is more into Ben-10, Power Rangers and Transformers. Same goes to my 2 more sons Hakim and Aleem. And also now I'm expecting another BOY (as what my gynae says).... I guess it is better to give it to my niece Aleesya. She's 2 years and it will be just perfect for her.

And my niece Aleesya. Smiling happily with her gift.. (Ask Mommie to frame it for you okay..)

A birthday card

I was browsing the net to search for some nice charts, so that I can stich them and do a Birthday Card for my niece..Marissa. She's turning 5 this July.. and very into dolls.


So, I guess I'll stich a picture of a doll or a girl on her birthday card. I manage to stumble across http://yudastitch.blogspot.com/ and found a chart of a japanese girl.

Here are the final results and a picture of my niece...Marissa with her card and present. "Happy Birthday darling!!"





Love always,

Cross Stiching After 4 Years

I started cross-stiching again one day after 4 years of leaving it. My 3 boys were at my mother's place for a sleepover.. and I was soo bored. Hubby was at his Art Studio finishing his artworks.. so, here I was at home ALONE.


Nothing shown on TV was for my liking..and also can't sleep... I thought I could relax as my kids were away.. Being pregnant at 7 months.. I could need the rest though.


However, everything seems nothing else I could do, when I remembered my cross stich. I still have an unfinished cross stich that I have left it for 4 years. Same age as my youngest for now.
Will try to finish it ASAP. Will upload a picture of it later...

Till then, love always
Fara
