A card & sept. "my little heart sal"!



I so love this cute design, it's the fourth time now that i made this one into a card. I know my sister was expecting a baby boy but i don't like to start stitching it beforehand so when i heard the news early this week i work on it and finished it within 2 days in between sorting and packing.

Here's a picture of my sister's family, living in Canada. The last time we met was when we were both visiting our parents in Asia year 2004, she's single then. So i haven't met her family yet though seen lots of pictures of them on facebook. They've booked to visit our family in Asia this coming December but we couldn't make it to join them. It will be a while for us to meet each other...

This very small design took me a couple of days to finish. Really don't have much spare time to stitch these days. But atleast we are nearly done with sorting and packing as hubby will be off to sea in less than two weeks.



Thank you all for stopping by and for taking the time to leave me a comment. I really appreciate them all.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend.

Hope you get to see your family soon! Pictures just aren't the same.

Love the sweet little scarecrow for "My Little Heart SAL" ---- makes me wish for fall even more than I already do.

Annie said...

Congrats on your new nephew. That's a cute card. I never stitch for a baby until it's born either.. too superstitious.

The SAL is looking so cute. I bet you'll be sorry to see it end.

Irene said...

Congratulations to your sister. It is very hard having family live far away, internet (facebook) is a good way for keeping in touch. Lovely SAL.

Congrats on your finish and your new nephew! Your sister's family is beautiful. I can so relate to the missing your sister's family growing up. I have two sisters. Both live over 1,500 miles away. I get pictures from time to time, but I do so miss seeing them in person.
