Crystal's RR

I tried to upload this pic to my webshot album but I forgot my password. So am unable to log in to webshot from this desktop that I am using right now. That's for having the password save for easier log in on my notebook. I swear if something happen to the notebook, I'll have to emailed for passwords as I won't be able to remember them. And it seems so logical when I first register myself anywhere....

Anyway, was just checking and I only have 3 more pieces to stitch on for this 12 person RR. So looking forward to have mine home soon.

Aion Nutty Stitchers RR

A cottage for Crystal's RR, I finished this last week. Wanted to stitch another one but got side tracked and was also reminded that I have other exchanges due.

So, I guess I'll just go ahead and post this out to Sylvie tomorrow as I don't think I'll be able to stitch another one soon.

EMS Valentine 2006

Just finished this, EMS new freebie "Sending you my love". One guess what I am going to use this for.... LOL! Mail Art, of course. Am going to send it to my elder sister...

Right, I was supposed to finish the Wedding Sampler yesterday or was it the day before. Looks like I was doing something else....

Still unfinished yet...

thinking of starting new projects. Then was reminded today about the Valentine stitch card exchange and Margaret's 2006 exchange which are due early Feb.

I don't know why, am always very excited to start a new piece and seeing the colours coming together but when it gets to the end expecially the backstitches... really needs a lot of motivation to get it done. Example the Wedding Sampler. I better set a target to finish it by tomorrow. Hopefully I won't start on EMS new Valentine 2006. But the pull is towards the other direction...

At least I got an RR done, will scan it later. Don't have enough socket for the power plug. Have to switch off the modem before I can use the scanner. (Note to self: To get a multi-socket extention)

Not to forget got some more to go on Lene's RR. I better sign off now and start on the Valentine heart... ^_*

Jan 15th

I know I need exercise but the thought of it is just too tiring...

Jan 10th

10 days already into the New Year 2006 and what have I done?

I have finally got streamyx installed at home. First it was the line and then the modem. Got a new modem but did not read instruction and was sitting there wondering why am I not connected to the internet!!

Anyway, today is a holiday here - Hari Raja Haji. Literally means the ‘festival of pilgrimage’. It is the festival marking the day of pilgrimage to Mecca, the fifth tenet of Islam. Hari Raya Haji is known to many as Hari Raya Aidil Adha. This festival is celebrated by Muslims to honour pilgrims who have completed their Haj to Mecca.

Am still a little groggy from sleeping too much. Maybe this broadband thing is not such a good idea for home. Just woke up and on the internet already. I need to do something else...

And I also have a couple of RR to finish.

Ta for now.

2005 Report Card

This was my biggest project in 2005. Glad Shamrocks by Pamela Kellogg. It was another mystery-stitch-a-long piece finished end of March. I was among the first to finish but because I amended the 2005 with the chinese character 'Spring', I was not qualified to win the first-to-finish prize. But later Pam felt bad about it and offer 2 of us that finished it first but not as designed, half the prize money. Pam really didn't have to do that, it was a pleasure stitching this piece.

Other that this, didn't really have much to list down for my report card.

I did stitch Lizzie Kate's Homework - Only dull women have immaculate homes. My older sister didn't like the saying. She wants a immaculate home and she is not dull! LOL!! But I love this piece....

Other finished mostly small designs for MA's and a 12 person RR which is still on going and a 6 person RR. I did plan to stitch more for myself towards end of 2005 but again I have already succumbed to exchanges. So, I suppose my 2006 report will be mostly exchange pieces....
