Another wedding, another sampler

There was another wedding in the family recently, this time it was my nephew... N since I was in the giving mood I decided to stitch another wedding sampler. Yes it's the same pattern as the one I did for my cousin, I didn't have the time to look for another pattern!!! Excuses, excuses huh...

Well this time I did manage to finish it on time... the reception on our side of our family was last Saturday, the 28th and it was already ready and framed by then!

Another selingan....

hehe...saja aje... got nothing to show on the stitching front.. so decided to show u what's happening in the kitchen...

I've always wanted to make my own bread.... but the thought of the kneading process totally put me off. Then my friend demo this bread maker to me n I was hooked. So now I can make my own bread, buns n pizzas....

Multi-purpose Hoop
Ini saja aje buat selingan cos dah lama tak update blog!!!

See what my dear daughter came up with...she decided that my new hoop would make nice looking bracelets.... hmmm doesn't she have enough accessories already??
Nothing much done in terms of cross stitch.... Still trying to finish the first shelf of SAL. Haven't made much progress on that. I'm also working on another wedding sampler. Well it's the same
design as last time but for a different couple! I have two more weeks to go n I should be able to finish it on time this time around tapi I'm soooo not in the mood. Looks like I'll just have to force myself!

Sachet Bag
Haven't done hardanger for some time, so I decided to do this sachet bag. Below is a photo of the hardanger heart after cutting n weaving. My weaving has improved n I am happier with the result this time. However out of the 3 dove's eyes, only one turned out well... As they say practice makes perfect... so looks like I have to practice more!

This is the completed bag....

hmmm.... i wonder who this bag is for.....
