Wishing everyone a very happy, healthy,
hale, and hearty new year!!
May it bring us much love,
happiness, and contentment.
(Not to mention LOTS of stitchy, and some hunky, pictures, hehehe.)
|I framed her with a metallic frame from Michaels.|
The pink was perfect and suited her to a tee.
|Chinese Garden Mandala - Chatelaine|
The last part will be released in March 2012. Hopefully, I'll have kept up nicely
and we will have a finish in the first quarter of next year.
|Butterfly Lace Mandala|
This will be a Jan. 1st, 2012 start. I'm stitching this for my mommy,
and it needs to be done for my trip home next year.
|Spring Knotgarden - Chatelaine|
I'm way behind on this project. All the parts have been released,
so it's just a matter of catching up... HAH!!!
|Serengeti Mandala - Chatelaine|
Release date: March 1st, 2011
I won't be starting this till I finish Chinese Garden. However, since the kits take awhile,
hopefully everything will line up nicely and it'll get to me right after CG is done. :D
|Year of the Pig|
For Big P, the oldest boy of a dear friend.
|Year of the Tiger|
For Little P, the younger boy of the same dear friend.
|Oriental Grace - Joan Elliott|
I bought this kit awhile ago, and when a friend sent me PTP's Valor,
there was no doubt in my mind that Grace will have to be stitched sooner rather than later.
|Mermaid of Atlantis - Mirabilia|
The challenge is to have her finished in 55 hours.
I highly doubt I'd be able to do it. :)
|Pixie Couture - Mirabilia|
From to left: Bluebell, Sweet Pea, Gardenia, Magnolia, Poppy, Lilac.
I'm going to try and fit them in between bouts of Chatelaines.
|Top row (L to R): Assam Shrimp, Fish Cakes, Cilantro Chutney|
Bottom row (L to R): Malaysian Curry Chicken, Mixed Vegetable Stirfry
|Mixed Vegetable Stirfry: broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, mushroom, and wood ear.|
|Fish Cakes: salmon, mashed potatoes, green chili, lemon juice, cilantro.|
|Assam Shrimp: coated with flour and pan fried, then coated with a chili tamarind sauce.|
|Curry Chicken: spices from Malaysia and cooked with coconut milk.|
|Rice Pudding for dessert: garnished with raisins and ground cardamom.|
The left side shows the color of the frame. It has a greenish gold tone that
plays off nicely with the flower stalk and her dress.
|Mermaids of the Deep Blue|
The silver inner section and filigree mirrors the beads
on their tails perfectly. :D
|My Mirabilia wall. |
This is the view as you look to the left from the front door.
|Taj Mahal will find a new home and Serengeti will reside next to the giraffe.|
|I'd like to display the panel above the entertainment center.|
There's a nice wall expanse there. :)
|Don't you think the elephants in the mandala resemble our ironwood elephants from Zimbabwe?|
|See the algerian eyelets? They're so darn cool in here!! :D|
|Layover on belfast "Ray of Light"|
