French Wall Board

Inspired by my success of the keyholder I made a week ago and Vonna's great idea here, I ended up with this.

It's just an A4 sized chipboard and covered with fabric. Got the framers to install the thread to hang behind the board and I screwed 'L' hooks onto it. It's a little small and rather crowded though. I know, the quaker pinball is out of theme there :p Maybe I should just make another Quaker board! :D

Key Holder

Since I frequently see my sis and her DH scrambling for the house keys or the car keys or the bike keys, I figured this might be a welcomed addition to their new home :)

Designer: Lizzie Kate
Design: Home is where our story begins
Threads: DMC
Fabric: 25ct Floba (2/2)

And this was it's humble beginnings ... Yeah ugly, about sums it up! What do you expect for RM5! :p I removed the hooks and painted the sides with burnt sienna acrylic colour. Then I fixed new shiny gold hooks into the bottom side.

And this is for you Jess ...

Good Mail Day

I asked Margaret W to try to buy me a copy of JCS Magazine Ornaments Issue 2008 when she goes next to the bookshops. And she succeeded brilliantly! She also enclosed some lovely gifts from her trip to London. I love them and rest assured Margaret they will be put to good use :) Many thanks dear pal.

Halloween Stitching

We do not celebrate Halloween here in Malaysia. But with the dawn of commercialism I believe many night spots and hotels have been doing a bash of some sort for about a decade now. But to my limited knowledge, I don't think it has really caught on with the community at large and at residential areas.

Since I've been witnessing a great many Halloween finishes in blogland, I couldn't help but to take advantage of a Stacy Nash Primitive Designs survey giveaway chart found here. Unfortunately the survey has ended. I got the heads up from Barbara's blog about a week ago. Thanks for sharing Barbara.

I intend to finish it as a cushion cover, utilising the brown fabric shown.
