I finished stitching 1 out of 4 areas, and now working very hard to complete the top right side. Based on my planning, 1 area took me a week to complete with continuos non stop stitching, does not matter how much time I spend a day to stitch, minimum was 30 minutes and maximum was 2 hours. I set a target to complete this project by end of September.....I hope I will be able to adhere to my plan...hhhhmmmmm....
On my stashing....again it has been a must place to be every time I am in China....the small shops in the wholesale market opposite the hotel......this time I had place a few orders for the kits since there is no stock available on hand. The shop owner does not speak a word of English, but still we manage to communicate with my simple understanding of mandarin. She showed me the catalogue and I picked a few kits for her to order for my September trip. For this trip I picked up this petal of roses kit for myself......I also picked a couple of cartoon kits as a gift to my stitching friends (can't show it here since I have not mailed them and also some of them pay me a visit here...he...he...he...)Also, before I left to China, I received a bulk of my CC thread order from Barbara. The color are so stunning and I am not sure when I will have a chance to use them (I hide the purchase from Rozi and Ayong as I do not want to hear any more complaints from both of them .....)
