Crafting Journal | First cross stitch finish this year

Back in late 2016, I think I lost my stitching bug. Though, I've already known how to deal with it: starting a new piece of cross stitch! Around that time, my Facebook stitching-friends had their things on portrait stitching. Their results are all stunning. So I use the online photo-converting website, pic2pat.com, to convert photo to a cross-stitch chart.

I picked a photo of one of Korean-pop singers/idols, Cho Kyuhyun, a member of a well-known boy-band, Super Junior. I was (and still am) a big fan of his velvety voice, witty yet adorable personality on stage.

This progress picture is from mid of November 2016:



As of end of November 2016:


At mid of January 2017, it turned like this:


It finally finished at February 3, 2017:


February 3 is actually his birthday. This year he turns 29 (30 years Korean age) and he is about to fulfill his mandatory military duty in mid 2017.

The piece was stitched on black 14 ct aida, 20 color DMC thread. Photo courtesy of Leslie Kee for Glamorous Magazine (Japan), March 2013.

And this is the original picture :

Snippets of life | Friends forever

A meet-up after the month of Ramadan to celebrate the Eid al-Fitr with high school friends, the 90SMA3… (a belated post from August, 9, 2014)


A quick snap with our school-mate, currently The Mayor of Bandung, Mr. Ridwan Kamil a.k.a. Emil and the first lady.


The obligatory photo-shoot.


The beautiful venue is the official residence of Mr. Mayor. We just couldn't resist the pretty purple flowers.


It was a blast.
See you all next time, friends!

Catching up….


Whoaaaaa!!! Lots of catching up to do…

By the way, hello blogverse!


I've been mastering the art of procrastinating & daydreaming… But that didn't mean I've done nothing! It's just that micro-blogging was more appealing. *sighs*

I'll make it up! See you later! *waves*

Happy belated new year...!

Happy 2014!!!

I've been quite occupied this year-end since my kids are on a school break.


I don't usually make any resolution each and every year, but I simply wish that this year I'll be able to do more blogging and stitching :)
