In my last posting, I mentioned about my plan to stop hoarding craft items by offering my stash on Ebay so that they can be enjoyed by fellow crafters.
It has been a long, long time since I’ve sold anything on Ebay and so much development has occurred that I simply had to refresh my Ebay knowledge. After days of going through the many Ebay sellers’ guide, and after many, many mistakes, editing and relistings, I managed to list 4 items on my Malaysia Ebay Store. It’s called ‘Precious Crafts Collection‘. (more…)
Pejam celik, pejam celik, sudah mo ujung Mei (Sabahan Malay dialect)! It’s almost the end of May and wow! A holiday this Friday (Wesak) and 2 more holidays next Thursday and Friday (Sabah Harvest Festival). But for the kids, they will start their 2 weeks’ school holidays this Friday. Yippee!
Last Friday to Sunday was IHSW. I make it a point to follow IHSW every month since February 2013 because I know that if I don’t, I would surely miss doing cross stitching a whole month one day. I hope I will continue to remember to commit to IHSW every month.
Initially, I planned to continue with Panda but as I rummaged through all my unused free gifts (which came with Cross Stitch Crazy, Cross Stitcher and The World of Cross Stitching magazines of 2011-2012), I found a Needle Book Stitch Kit courtesy of Cross Stitcher magazine, issue 250 (Mar 2012).

Inside the nice envelope is a red, white and blue felt, a soluble canvas, a needle and a few unsorted thread. The chart is on page 2-3 of the said Cross Stitcher. (more…)
I am happy to report that I managed to do some cross stitching yesterday, after a hiatus of about 3 weeks! So very, very happy! And to think that it nearly didn’t happen… I was occupied with jalan-jalan (sight-seeing, walks) around Kota Kinabalu with the kids on Saturday and being lazy on the Sunday morning. Jalan-jalan because I needed the exercise (having gained a few extra pounds this month) and lazy because the rain ruined my laundry plans and also because the walks made me soooo extremely tired … . Really, I am getting old….er. Too old to chase after my 4 year old son.
I spent my Sunday afternoon cross stitching this new project and it is in my 2013 Cross Stitching Activity Plan. I just adore its cuteness. So far, this is what I’ve stitched:

And this is what it should look like (more or less) in the end: (more…)
