Simple Pleasures are Best

Dont you think so? Even though it means picking up the phone and talk to someone or listening to some MP3s, or even just hanging out your legs..

Freebie by Waxing Moon Designs.

Round Robins

A round robin is a piece stitched by two or more people. Usually comes with a theme, a series of designs or even a complete design divided up to be stitched by each of the participants. A dateline is set for each person to finish the stitching before mailing it to the next person until eventually it will reach the last person who is also the owner of the piece.

This is my piece for 2006 MYS RR. Seasonal Postcards c Passione Ricamo. These are previously freebies at the website, but no longer available. However, these postcards will appear in one of the UK mags as part of their stitching series.

And this is an old designer RR. I chose Lizzie Kate's Friendship chart as my theme. I have always wanted a piece like this. It reminded me of old school book where friends will autographed all over..

Book Covers

Finally I had some time to make up these book covers. Previously, it had only been ideas in my head and in the pages of my book. The original idea came from a plastic book cover that I brought back from the US. It fits a standard paperback size (with some room to spare) of any thickness.

People said 'dont judge a book by its cover'. I wonder what they will said when they look at these covers.

My first design..the book Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.

Hanging Hearts..the book The Devils Wear Prada by Lauren Weisberger.
