Wonderful Surprises…

Hello my dear friends,

I hope you had the magical wonders and great feasting over the Christmas period.
This year, hubby and myself wanted a quiet Celebration. So, is just the two of us and we get to cook for each other. I did mine on the eve and he made me Christmas dinner. It was so Yummy. Thumbs up for the lovely beef and potatoes.

And we had a wonderful time opening up our lovely Christmas gifts given by many friends. Thank you so much for brightening up our Christmas Morning.

I also had a great time over at the Popin Craft Exhibition. If you recall earlier, I had submitted an art work and now is exhibiting in the Art House. How wonderful to see many talented pieces too. I’ve taken some of the pictures as below, please enjoy the many inspirational pieces.

Don’t you agree that this is so kawaii?

A very well-stitched cat in front of the Sewing Machine. This is a well-like piece by the security Guard whom I spoken to.

On the other side of the wall, finally I spotted mine. Do you know which one is it?

Yay.. you got it…. I send in the Life is… work.
20131225_142901And my favourite pieces are the two grand pieces as below, which I think they are very well designed.
The cute birdy one is not cross-stitched but using paint. Well drawn and painted on. I love the idea.
The Girl in blue has a background of blackwork (stitched in blue). Is really an awesome piece.

  1. I bet you had a wonderful Christmas although it was just the two of you. Sometimes we prefer a quiet celebration. Wow, you made it to the exhibition. I have to agree with you that there are so many beautiful and creative submissions from the participants. And yours is beautiful too. Hopefully we can join again next year.

    p/s: I wonder have you receive my parcel yet?

  2. I love all of your gifts that you received for Christmas. I know you had a wonderful time opening them. I received your lovely pincushion in the mail. Thank you so much. It’s beautiful. I have had the flu over the last week or so. I am hoping this week to get back into some kind of routine and will post on my blog. Wishing you health and happiness for the New Year.

    • ooohh… glad the package has made to you safely.. and I hope you are getting better now.. Keep warm.. and I wish you happy 2014. May all your wishes come true.. 😀
