Christmas Joy

Design is from a website freebie, but I stitched the J, O and Y separately and made them into pincushions. I attached long ribbons on the back of the pincushions and knotted them around the wreath to secure. I added some other ornaments, such as bells, poinsettia, drums, holly ivy, etc. It turned out great. This is a special gift for my reverend in my church.

I made two more wreaths for other reverends. I used the Christmas theme pincushions that I made last year and didn’t use, and were just sitting around. These were also from website freebies but I don’t know where. I hope they like these wreaths.

Brown Holly Hobbie Bag

This was my 10th Holly Hobbie, done in July 2009. I wanted another bag, so my frinend Ttenzzang quilted this into a bag for me. I carried this bag to church this past sunday and I heard lots of nice comments.

Two Cushions

I stitched this red Dresden Plade in Feb, 2008. Design is originally Blue & White, but I changed the colours to Red & White, and this version turned out great.

Original Blue & White version, done in Sep, 2004.

Second one is an initial "H", which was done in May, 2008. I have made these into cushions for my sister. Special thanks to Ttenzzang in korea.

Back Home

I'm still here, but it's been a rough time for me the past six months. I thought I would only be away for a couple of months. In March I went to Korea to have an operation for liver cancer. The operation took about 6 hours on April 6, and it was successful. My daughter came to Korea to take care of me for two weeks, during my main recovery time. I was in the Hospital for a month, and stayed at my youngest brother's house for rest of the time. For five months after surgery, on September 7, I came back to my home in Canada. I still feel a little pain from the surgery, and it's still hard to adjust to the 13 hours time difference, but I'm happy to be back with my family and my friends.
These two towels I completed just before I left Korea, for my youngest brother for thanks.

Ice Hotel

Last week I went to Quebec City to see the winter festival and Ice Hotel. It was a very neat experience. All of the cities and the places we visited were covered in white and it was beautiful, but the temperature was very cold.

15 side pincushions

I made some pincushions in different colours and shapes, such as blue, red and starfish shape. It was fun to make and a very lovely shape. I want to try to make them again someday. I just pick small designs (bird, rose…) from freebies here and there to fit in a little square. And I don’t remember where I picked them.

Quaker Pouch

I enjoyed stitching this lovely Quaker design from AMAP and made it into a pouch for cosmetics. I carry it in my purse all the time. I used DMC variegate floss. I tried to change the colours myself. I did one with some yellow and pink, but I didn’t quite like it, so I removed all the bright colours and changed them to blue tones. I love how it turned out.

Coffee break and Tea time

Designs are from Michaels, freebies one-time. I stitched these cute projects in 2001 for my kitchen.
