Ups and Down!

Fruitful and emotional weeks are behind me now. Thank goodness! I learned a lot from other people and how they treat other people too. Tsk! Tsk! Tsk! Anyway, no more sulking. On the brighter side, I have accomplished a lot and made some clients happy. 

I want to start with the charity stitching I have joined in Facebook. The name of the charity group is SFPSFC & Rachels Place Orphanage. Thanks to a good friend and she introduced me to Jane Jibb, the moderator. 

I stitched this cute Letter T for turtle in 2 days only. It reminds me of Mr. D. He is my big tortoise. I got this chart from The Best of Margaret Sherry bookazine. We were asked which letter we can stitch from Margaret's Animal ABC. I chose letter T. I was happy working on it because I know it will be made into a quilt for a special kid. Now, I need to start on a Disney character for another square. Haven't decided yet which one. 

My RR group is doing well also. I'm done with the design. Just need to finish with the lettering. Then it will be off to Michigan for another stitcher. 

The design is called A Host of Angels. It came from Sue Cook's Christmas Collection. But for my lettering I got the chart from Enjoy Cross Stitch  Christmas 2011 magazine. I love how the round robins held the letters. So cute! I'm getting excited on receiving a fabric or project from another stitcher. Her theme is White Christmas and I got a chart for that ready. 

The excitement and the challenge on Worldwide Round Robin has just been added. Oh, yes! This time I'm facilitating my own group per request of a friend. It will only be the three of us. I call it RR for 3. It's starting to be fun. I'm getting ready for that too. 

Another good news will come from my Etsy shop of course. 

Do you remember when I told you about a recent MADE TO ORDER? Tadah! All done! My client is so understanding to allow me to use this photo as a sample item for my new listing Outdoor ABC. And she loves it to bits. I'm so happy because I made another Mom happy. 

I don't wanna flood this post tonight so I'll try to post again this week to show you more photos of my items. 

Oh, I'm saddened because I left 2 cross stitching groups. Anyway, there's still 4 groups I'm in. And I love these groups. A variety of people and cross stitch works. I fell in love with Nora Corbett's designs on one group. I just started collecting her designs too. Not to brag, but I only need one more book and my book collection of Joan Elliott's designs are complete. Then I'm ready for my very first cross stitch work of her. Funny thing is the first design I'll stitch will not be coming from a book. It will be a chart pack. I'm still waiting for it in the mail. You will know soon enough. 

Happy weekend everyone!!! 

Be a blessing to others.  


  1. I love your work. Hope I'll get back to my needlepoint one day too!

  2. Thank you dear. It's my pleasure to inspire other stitchers or crafters to embrace their passion and skills. I hope to see your works soon too. You can do it! :)
