I have been enjoying stitching with Carrie Creation lately. The colors are lovely and sooo stunning....
This piece were stitched on the flight to Shanghai and were completed in my hotel room in Zhejiang. Then I brought back to Malaysia to assemble into pinkeep since I do not have enough tools and supply for assembling them (hhhhmmmmm....she is now sitting pretty on top Wawa's piano...)
Now that my buddy stitchers had grown from 3 to 4 persons and our office are located at the same area. The pinkeep is our first SAL project and we had planned for another project after Eid Mubarak holidays. Our SAL rule are very simple :
1. Since all of us are too occupied with our work but at the same time wanted to continue doing our serious hobby, we had decided to choose a small project ie. pinkeep, needlecase, scissor keeper etc.etc.
2. The design must be using less than 3 colors or alternatively we can use variegated colors.
3. We try to go searching for the materials or tools together during our lunch time.
4. Meet at least once a month for lunch.
I also managed to finish small gift which I started stitching during my August trip. I made a biscornu as a surprise gift for my office administrator, Izzy, who had help organizing my travel schedule whenever I am away for my overseas trips. She had done a tremendous jobs and always get my favorite seat for my flight. I feel she should be appreciated for some kind of special gift since she is also into cross stitching and my only buddy stitcher in the office. I suggested to her that this biscornu can be use as a scissor fob but she prefered to hang it on her cubicle wall. It's nice to see her smiling face when I had it over to her.....
These is my stitching achievement for September. I have yet to finish my Bouquet for Cheryl which should have been completed end of Sept (my original target...:P)....I have another 25% to complete, so I am not so worried since the date line is for another 2 months.
