The One that started the Penang Thingy...

Precious Moment designs. My first love with cross stitch....lol!!! I did a lot of them in the 1990's. This piece was done mid 1990's, I don't even remember which year. It was stitched on Aida 11 ct and the fabric already started to yellow...I did not leave much space for the framing. At that time, I didn't know that have to leave at least 2 to 3 inches fabric space...

Anyway, Ah Ping(a colleague's sister) chose this piece as a housewarming gift. That's when I called Mr Lim if he can frame something with very little space allowance. He said he will have a look first... since I have to courier this piece, I added a few other pieces. How many pieces exactly? You'll find out eventually when I get them back.

I must learn how to take better pictures...

Hi Wendy, I like the saying in this piece, how very true!

Waiting patiently for the follow up pictures and please do so when I can still count!

LOL! Emily, am trying to arrange transport to collect all my pieces. Mr Lim is still waiting for me to finish another 2 pieces of MP, part of the House of Provence series.

I haven't seen this piece before. It's really pretty and meaningful.

Mr Lim did a fabulous job with the framing.

Isn't our cousin Mavis in Penang? Why don't you ask her to bring them back for you?
