Canada Geese


Today, I went to Edwards Gardens with my daughter. We saw a family of Canada Geese, including 15 goslings … Wow…
They are so cute. Many people and children were watching the family of geese.
It’s a beautiful garden with lots of flowers…and a good place for a walk, too.

Home Decoration



My brother lives in Acton, Ontario, one hour distance from Toronto.
When I visited them last time, my sister-in-law mentioned that she wanted something to hang on the front door of her house, but she didn’t have any ideas.
She and I tried to hang a wreath but the space between door and screen door wasn’t enough.
This week, I looked around to see what I have.
I used an angel frame, which I bought from a garage sale last year during my trip to the East Coast, and four seasons I stitched earlier this year, but I only used three of the seasons and not winter, due to colours not complementing each other somehow.
Well, the arrangement wasn’t easy at all, and I changed it several times before I finished…
I think the final arrangement is good enough….. I hope she likes it.

Her Flower Garden SAL 2



6 parts of Sal from A Box of Chocolate is now completed.
I stitched 3 blocks, Fuchsia, Sunflower and Daisy this week.
I arranged them on a wreath, my 10th wreath, but it doesn’t look good somehow, due to all the variety of colours on each of the blocks.
It’s not easy to arrange them all together.
Maybe I’ll split them into two groups and make them into something else.

Sewing

I made a number of smalls, such as a Cat door hanger, stuffed cats, and pincushions, and I used these as small gifts.
I got the DIY patterns from European websites. They are so cute. I would like to thank those European sites, who shared these lovely ideas.
I want to make more of these smalls in the future.

But they that wait



“But they that wait upon the lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31.

Design is from Praying Hands book, Glorious Earth, Inspired by Isaiah. Designed by Donna Giampa. Some parts were stitched using full cross stitch with one strand or full cross stitch with 3 strands, or half stitch with 2 strands, etc….for better results, to simulate perspective, to make parts look up-close or far-away.

My Collections 4

Ornaments Collection


I made so many ornaments so far. I hung them on door knobs everywhere in my home, which looked a little messy.I wanted to put them all together nicely.
I tried putting them on my curtain, which looks okay to me, but my son said it looks messy.Well, I don’t know what else I can do. I’ll just leave it for awhile.
