Sunshine the Sunflower Family

I was so hooked with sunflower, I did not realize that I have stitched quite a number of sunflower related item for the MDSE..hehehe..just cant resist myself..Since Sis Noreen has received the gift, its only appropriate of me to publish the picture and the story behind the making...hahaha















The Needlebook..The pattern was originally frm a cross stitcher magazine that I asked frm Lindt to pass to me.(thank you Lindt..the pattern was addicting..hehehe). I just take the upper portion of the pattern and stitch is as a needlebook..with a little bit of add on...
Tak susah sangat sebenarnya nak stitch buku ini sebab ini sudah masuk yg ke5...chewahh tapi masih menggigil2 lagi bab nak mencantumkan felt..kerastangan maa!!




















Again..adapting frm the same pattern...stitching only the blooming flower as a scissor fobs pattern .
Pertama kali dlm sejarah, I'm using cording yg keras tu utk di jahit sekeliling fob. Maaf ye Kak Reen, percubaab pertama tu tak begitu da bomb...dan bow merah tu sebenarnya utk menutup kecomotan hasil kerja..hehehe..tu pasal tone kalers tu lari..tetiba jer..terletak bow merah...But then...it add colors to the dull fob..ngeh ngeh ngeh..















Mothers Day Pillow for Sis Noreen. That is the best I can do with ribbons..hehehe..dare not to chalenge myself more.. And to tell the truth..I'm taking long time to stitch cording all around...Kengkonon nak surprisekan myself..to see whether I really can do it..but then I'm actually surprised..lama betul masa yg diambil nak jahit kording tu..dr duduk tegak, sampai mengiring dan akhirnya baring terlentang..kording tu still lambat nk complete..Moral of the story.. I will not stitch any more of this style..period.!!


















The Cubegalatte. Using the coasters design,again frm the same pattern and frm the same magazine. this is a tedious job for me as I find it boring to stitch 5 sides of the same pattern....but after seeing the end result..only admiration arises..Will stitch another cube for my self soon...exactly like this...wink-wink .
Actually I stitched this way ahead..Initially was meant for myself..but since the theme for my gifts to Sis Reen is sunflowers..why not give it altogether..nanti tak cukup item pulak for all my sedara mara to uuuuu aaaahhhh uuuu aaahhh..Hahahaaha..gurau jer ye kengkawan..
















Lastly..while browsing the freebies pattern. found this sunflower fit for a biscornu. cant resist myself once again. I stitched it till the wee morning hours..right before I mail out the box. Totally kelam kabut..hehehe















So..there you go...my sunshine family made for Sis Noreen. Pls excuse the workmanship and the color combination. What seems marvelous to my eyes doest not always in sync with others. I didnt mean to over exeggerating myself or to show off by producing one too many items..but as I mentioned earlier..since sunflower is one of my favourites, I enjoyed myself while stitching all these. Even when I cant keep it , I am content just by stitching it for a dear sis whom I regard as relative..sedara mara..if u need to elaborate..ngeh ngeh ngeh....

Tq Eva...u may borrow my spirit anytime..but I think as your child grow older, they dont need ur attention so much, u have more time for yourself..sure you can do it..provided..tak ada beranak kecil setiap tahun..ekekeke..if that happens..kena tunggu pencen lah......baru ada masa..muahahaha
