Special days

December has always been a special month for me...

The 21st is my daughter's birthday and 23rd is my hubby's.

This year my daughter turns 13 years old and hubby 42. Actually I was a bit upset to learn about rumors on the Mayan calendar that predicted the doomsday at Dec 21, 2012. Well, I didn't believe it to the slightest, but of all the 365 days of the year, should it be at my daughter's birthday? Hahaha it doesn't matter now, because we survive that one..!

The 22nd is actually the Mother's Day in Indonesia. I rarely post my self picture, but for the sake of the Mom's Day, here's a picture of me, my daughter, and my mom...

Have a nice year-end!
Happy stitching!

Hello again

It's been quite a while since my last post.
Well, my work loads have always been the cruelest at the last two months of the year. And I actually have been occupied with my home renovation for about 6 weeks.

Hubby and I didn't intend to do a big renovation at first. We just needed to fix our ceiling. But then one thing leads to another... We ended up with a long list of things to fix.

And tons of brick, piles of paint, boxes of tile, and lots of packing and unpacking stuffs later...

Our plain pale yellow house...

has a tinge of fresh orange I've been wanting to apply...

I still have tons of stuff to re-manage... but I decide to take a break for a while and finish my two WIPs!

My New Year Exchange Gift 2013 with fellow Indonesian cross-stitchers (I've been doing this exchange for 3 years).

And my untouched Cool Cats, autumn and winter cats, from Margaret Sherry Lovers SAL #3.

Let's sit back and relax... Grab some coffee and stitch stitch stitch...!

Happy holidays!!!
