Our Beautiful World 108 ~ Stitch/es

This week at



Mandysea picked the word

Stitch/es

I have a box of goodies waiting to be stitched....


they are so beautiful and precious, I was reluctant to use them, LOL!

And there's an interesting story behind this box.


when I moved to NYC in 2003, I brought along a Japanese patch work book with me, but I slowly realized that I couldn't get any of those materials shown in the pattern book, so I looked at the back of the book, emailed them to see if they ship overseas, the answer was NO, but guess what, the author of the book was going to make a trip to NYC and she had agreed to bring some of the materials I wanted, not only that, she didn't even want to take my money upfront, she said she trusted me and would collect the money only when she arrived. So, we met up at a restaurant, I got what I wanted, paid her, and brought my patch work book and came home with her autograph too, how cool is that!

Come tell us your story behind your photo at

Happy Birthday Stella!

I am such a dock, the traveling certainly didn't help, I got back to work right away, still haven't got time to get over jet-lag yet, and the people at the Singapore Club is giving me so much trouble, I decided to step down as president just to allow myself to have some peace in my life, and guess what, I totally forgotten about the post for Stella's birthday, not only that, I made the card before I left for Singapore and now I can't find it, sigh......

I am so sorry Stella for being late for this post.

Happy Birthday YOU!


I hope you join us HERE to wish Stella a happy birthday!


It's weekend already?

Ahhhh.... it is weekend already. Time sure flies by when you are busy.
I started one of the three albums I supposed to make for my aunt, but just the cover is done, sigh..... I really wish I have more time in my craft room. Today, I am going to get my DT work done, and then continue with the album, so..... no new stuff, just something I dig out from my photo folder.




Hope you have a fun-filled weekend!
