Salaams and Hello everyone :-)
Happy 2012!..wow 1st week of January in 2012 already gone and how is your new year's craft resolution *wink*..to me nothing changed but I am challenging myself at least to make a small progress on every pieces of xstitch which is in my UFO list, so that I can hang something new on my wall of fame *wink*. My existing framed xstitch, some of it had shown sign of aging with dots of brown spot scattered everywhere (sama macam tuan dia jugak..aging gracefully *hiks*) and the new view on the wall can help to up lifting and motivate my lazy mode smile*.
Ok, let me story about the bouquet of roses, a design adapted from The Romance Of Ribbon Book by craftworld same design with the Aliah's pillow which I had done before. I did some minor modification from the previous pillow, since I don't have any more available two tone ribbon color in my ribbon stash, I need to order it from ebay, thus took quite sometimes for it to arrived causing delay on the stitching progress, it took me more or less about 3 months to sew it as I am not doing it on full time basis, I only stitched when I have free time and usually my customer understand my constraint and they willing to wait ~ thank you so much :-))
For this pillow, I am practising my thread embroidery skill with simple fine sprays using bullion stitch, not so difficult actually, hurmms..one of my goal this year is to refine my bullion stitch skills :-)
Soo relieved to see the three pieces of pillow finally done and I can feel part of the responsibility has been lifted from my shoulder *sigh* and I can move on to another stitching project.
Till next entry, take care everyone. May we have a productive 2012 producing many beautiful crafts and inspiring each other. XOXO
