X -STITCH TREASURES

In the beginning of my marriage life way back in 1983, I had started this hobby of cross-stitching to fill my free time when I was having my first pregnancy. I resigned from my job in KL, and stayed with my hubby's family in Alor Setar, and was jobless then. So had really lots of leisure times sewing and picking up my other hobbies while learning to serve local dishes from my late MIL. Then I had tree kids and a career to take care and had limited times.

These two are my favourites. Roses are my flower and the other one was done fully stitched and took about one month to complete.....

How I wish that we could stay somewhere as serene as is in the design when hubby retires...........




















I did a lot. From the smallest items to things for framing up.
Some of them were given away to relatives and also as wedding gifts to my closest deerie. These are some left which was collected by hubby and framed and hanged up in our family lounge.







Also found in an old shoe box were my pieces of DMC embroidery threads.

If I could locate my other collections of UFO's x-stitch hidden in the darkness of my old wardrobe, I'll include here.

Another one of my favourite was crocheting................

Kak Diah ...Beautiful piece of work!

I was so obsessed with cross stitch during my first pregnancy.... but now there is just no time.

I miss it greatly....

Wow.. beautiful collection!

i start cross-stitch when i was 13 and made a big bouquet of roses too. took me about 5 years to complete due to my on & off passion. Now, i love to start again, but afraid, i dont have that much sewing leisure time ..

like hobby mummy, i miss it too....

Hobby Mummy,
Thanks for the compliments.... just the reminiscence of past years. Maybe I will start anew. InsyaAllah.

Alviana,
Lets start again and do something together. Maybe this way we could motivate each other...
