A token of love

Design is a part of “The Token” by Long dog samplers. I stitched this in Jan/2009 and finished it into a needle case in June/2009.

Lilies in my mini garden

I put 4 small rectangular wood pots in my balcony. Last year I put lilies in one pot and this year they started coming out in late April. This week they started blooming. They are dark orange in colour and are beautiful.

Kitchen Basket

Design is from Korean designer, Jasuzip Cross Stitch Design Group. It's a Kitchen Sampler of nine blocks, but I stitched only five of them.

I sewed them individually with some beads

I arranged them with dried flowers on a wicker basket shape. I gave it to my brother’s family for their new home.

8th Holly Hobbie

I again stitched Holly Hobbie, this time in pink version. It’s my 8th one and it turned out pretty bright pink.I used DMC, 155, 208, 318, 333, 367, 433, 436, 601, 603, 700, 702, 727, 728, 754, 792, 801, 898, 915, 917, 3607, 3608, 3689, 3750, 3787, 3814, 3842, 3843, 3865 and white.

One of my friends in Korea who does quilting made this one into a nice bag. I mailed this piece in March to Korea, and got it back last week.
I know it’s not easy to match the colours of fabric around a stitched piece, but she did a good job. I’m so pleased with this bag. I carried this bag yesterday to Church, and I received lots of comments
