I didn't make any party this year..(blame it on the morning sickness)..
But only had a small celebration with my family and dining outside at
Bubba Gump. A restaurant name after the movie "Forrest Gump".
the Art Expo 2013 exhibition.
Paintings, sculptures and arts items are displayed there
from various part of the countries.
My hubby's artwork was also displayed there:
The kids had fun mimicking some of the paintings there:
Hope you guys had a great weekend last week. :)

embossed on a lovely card inside the box
* red envelope ~ cross-stitch threads
* blue envelope ~ ribbon strips & pegs
* white pouch ~ buttons
* pink pouch ~ items for scrapbooking
Coimbra ~ That's where Rita is from.
And also Rita gave me a nice letter. :)
I guess Rita likes polka dots, as all her gifts are mostly in polka dots!!
So, I take the liberty also to take the pictures of my gifts with a polka dot background..hihi.
Thanks Rita for the lovely gift. Hope to hear more from you.
|A Joyful Porcupine Ballerina|
(isn't it cute?)
This pattern was then transferred and I finished it into a
small pouch/bag. It was my very first attempt, "Hand sewn".
In all exchanges, we are required to give 4 gifts together with
our hand-made cross stitch.
I included some momento from Malaysia as well to Noni,
"The Petronas Twin Tower".
It's the tallest building here in Malaysia,
soaring to a height of 451.9 metres and with 88-storeys.
Other gifts I slot in for Noni was some cute bear pegs, a pair of butterflies,
some colourful tapes,
a pink tin to put in her knick knacks (threads, needles, buttons, etc..),
and Oh! A bar of chocolate...notepad.
Hihihi.. Noni, please don't bite the chocolate bar, ok?!!
I'm glad that my parcel arrived safely to Noni.
Hope she enjoys it!
updated 22/7/2013 : to read Noni's post on my parcel to her, read here. :D

Not much of a progress. Can't really see the tea cup yet, only a handle.
I was nervous and shaking to stitch..hehe.
As this is to submit for a competition, your mind keep telling
you to stitch properly and tidy. I feel like a beginner...lol.
Till the next update,
