January order

3 roses posy
5 roses wreath
4 cushions and 3 runners. The cushions were a month late because of unforeseen happenings. Fortunately, the designs were very simple. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of the runners.

The customer provided me with her own fabric. Truthfully, I prefer to use my own, because the fabric she gave me tended to run easily and it wouldn't be long for the cushions to look furry. I took the challenge anyway.

I charged her rm20 for embroidering the 3 roses posy and rm15 for the 5 roses wreath each. Tell me if you think I have overcharged her. I'd really appreciate your opinions.

December's special Order

the whole set
full blown romance
roses on pink
I'm happy with the outcome of the set and I hope my gf will be to. It took me a whole month to sew them. Of course I didn't do it 24/7.

The one with the lace and ruffles took the longest. First the cushion was filled up with embroidery and second, the ruffles and back of the cushion had to be sewn by hand. It was too thick for my machine to pass through. Even my edging-machine couldn't handle the edges. So, I did it the very old-fashion way.

It was a pleasure doing the romantic cushion again, but my fingers will need a rest for a while.

Happy Eid Fitri to my muslim guests who happen to view my page!

I've been away so long because I haven't had time to embroider any cushions until recently when I finally got a new maid. House chores never ends and I totally hate doing them but I had to.
Embroidery is different. If I'm hard at work stitching, it's not because I'm 'rajin' hard-working but because I have fun doing it. If I'm hard at work doing chores, then I'm 'rajin". Only because I had to.

Before Ramadhan, all my cushions were purchased by a decor shop in the neighbourhood. Hopefully they got sold and the buyers were happy with them, albeit the higher price. Now I am finishing up a couple of orders.

Thanks Melur for your input. I hope your hobby will give you many happy hours and as an added bonus, you'll even profit from it!

I had this sudden burst of energy to embroider a lot of topiaries.

Main reason was because my cousin Ija wanted to give a couple of frames as a house-warming gift to her friend. I thought I might as well do a few so she could choose to her heart's content.

Also, my husband was out of the country that week and I thought it's better to let the hands be busy than the tongue! He! He!

Roses and pansies

Roses n Pansies

Roses and pansies don't bloom in the same seaon. Roses love summer and pansies the spring, but I thought they look good together here.
