Coffee Menu again

Saja aje nak tunjuk gambar this piece again after framing. Normally when I frame something the
guy will recommend cream and brown border. So this time I told him that I want something
different, so he used dark green instead of cream...
What do you guys think? Ok tak border ni?
Going to give it to my friend this morning...hope she will like it.. and I hope that this piece will be
happy in it's new home! (oops sorry... mengarut jap!!!)

Coffee and Onion Rings

This is Coffee Menu by LHN. It's a birthday present for a friend who loves her coffee. I just finished it and will send it
to be framed soon. It's fun to stitch, there's no backstitch, no half stitch and no quarter stitches!

Butterfly ni sebenarnya kecik aje tapi bila dah scan nampak besar pulak! Me jealous tengok butterfly Ibu_sara, so I tried to make one too. So now dah boleh jugak buat onion ring... False picot, false chain tu tak cuba poor brain cannot absorb too much...have to take it slowly!!

Oh no....not another one!

As you can see I am totally hooked on mattress pincushions! Why? For me the finishing is easier to do compared to a pinkeep. Yes it's more tedious, there's more sewing to do...u have to count and recount as many times as it takes until you're satisfied that you haven't counted wrongly. But if you're very, very careful the finishing is a breeze. No need to worry about centering the stitched piece, fingers don't get messy with glue.....

This time I was more rajin....siap jahit kat tepi tu lagi!

Took this chart from TGOS June, 07.

Some tatting and stitching....

Huhu...I finally managed to finish this doily! Berpeluh jugak nak menyiapkan satu doily ni...
This doily uses one shuttle, one thread. It has 6 rows. Rows 1,2 and 3 was relatively easy. Masuk row 4 I started making mistakes but still boleh cover lagi. Then when I was tatting row 5, I kept making mistake after mistake so in the end I had to snip, snip row 5 and do it all over again! I was very, very careful when I did row 6 cos tak nak buat mistake lagi... I still need to work on the chains to get the tension correct tho....

Jangan tengok close up tau...hehe!

This is How Does Your Garden Grow - Part 2. Relatively easy to do, tak banyak and can finish in one I'm patiently waiting for part 3....
