"Summer Basket" is nearly done!

Hi everyone, how are you doing?
Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate for you reading this blog!
I also thank every customers who bought scissors from me, I can't reply to each person soon as there are so many e-mails everyday in my mail box, so please forgive it and please don't worry, I have received your mails and payments!

By the way, BBD's "Summer Basket" is nearly done!
Isn't this soft and beautiful colour? My mum also love this sampler so much!
I left snowflakes around (actually I don't like snowflakes motives...), and also my initial "Y", so will be able to finish this soon!

Here is satin stitch part that I love!

And here is one over one part that I hate! lol

Colourful alphabets!

It's so fun to stitch along this, but I stop to stitch this for a while as I have an Easter exchange piece that I have to work!!
When I finished exchange piece, I will back to this sampler!!

Take care and have a lovely day!
Bye for now,

Design : "Summer Basket" (Loose Feathers #38) © Blackbird Designs

The colourful alphabet is so very pretty! I have had some of those bad experiences while shopping--and it's even worse if you went on the trip to refresh your mood in the first place! Just what you don't need! I think your decision to change your hair and exercise is just the thing! :D The coming of spring should also help with changing the mood!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful Summer Basket with us!

Summer Basket is lovely! Just what you need when you want some lovely spring colours!

Yuko, I see you are in a makeover mood! I'm feeling like that too. I wonder if it's because it's Spring and we want to pop up like pretty flowers! ;-)

I love your Summer Basket! Can't wait to see a finish! As for a makeover -- sounds like fun! And the exercise -- yes, good for you. But you certainly don't need to slim down! You are beautiful already!

Yuko, your piece is just beautiful! The colors are so soft and lovely.

It is fun to just go and have someone give you a whole new look - I bet it's wonderful!

Barbara said...

Sorry to hear you're not feeling well but I ordered my scissors 4 weeks ago and after received 3 invoices from you of which I paid from the first one, I would like to know where my scissors are.

I love Summer basket, thecolours are so soft and delicate. It's a nice feeling to think it is nearly finished.

How exciting to have a totally new look. Just having your hair cut and coloured must have made you feel really positive. I can't think you have ANY weight at all to lose but, if that's how you feel, go for it and lots of luck. Just be careful that Sweetie doesn't walk passed you looking for his mum...haha!
Can't wait to see the new you and your Easter exchange :>)
