Quack.. Quack.. Quack...

I can't resist myself from joining this Quaker Pinkeep Exchange when Mona announced it over the board. And guess who's my partner ? The organiser, herself.. hik hik..

Since I have very limited collection of quaker charts, it took me longer time to find for suitable chart. Finally I fall in love with this chart called 'Essuie de Parade', from Gigi's blog. I stitched one of the motifs from the chart, using DMC variegated no. 111 stitched on white 28ct linen.

For the back piece, I used a fabby with prints looks like quaker (see the background of the photo) which I bought some time back from Craft World.

Thank Lene, Lillie & Dania, for visiting my blog.

Garden Theme Pincushion

Stitched for Barbara for our NeedlesNCrafts Pincushion Exchange. I decided to name this pincushion as Garden Theme Pincushion, where I stitched Barbara's initials in flower alphabets. I also used cotton fabby with butterflies print to match.

XStitches Pendibule Exchange 2007

Take a look at these... !!! A collection of all pendibules that have been stitched by all the participants from the recent exchange.. They're all look very lovely, aren't they.. I love them all, in fact !

And this is the pendibule that I received from my partner, Mas.. Thanks Mas, I love it soooo much...

My Very First Pendibule

I've seen Zalita stitched a pendibule for her partner for the last Needlecrafter Scissors Fob, such a cute one. So when I newly joined another Malaysian based cross stitcher's yahoo group - XstitchesNXchanges, they're in the midst of organising a Pendibule Exchange and I've signed up.

So for those who has visiting my blog b4, this is what the pink and purple thingy that M in love end up. This is my first ever pendibule for my partner, Dania stitched on 28ct lilac linen which I bought from Linda of Stitch N Such. The patern wuz actually a border taken from the Joan Elliot book. My personal advice for stitching a pendibule, is try to look up for pattern meant for border as it much easy to work on.

NC Scissors FOB Exchange

This is the 2nd exchange that I joined this year.. It wuz organised by Needlecrafter Yahoo Groups (NC). This is the scissors FOB that I stitched for Normia. I chose to stitch her initial 'N'. After I have completed the scissors FOB only I realised what I've stitched for Normia are a bit bigger. It looks like a pincushion rather than a scissor FOB.

I received this cute scissors fob from Ila in return.. very cute, rite.. I like it so much.. Thanks Ilaa..
