Le Suh: Royal Makkum China

The most exquisite and most complicated project ever…. The plate is so real and so detailed that it looks like it’s jumping out of (or falling from) the canvas. It took me three months to finish this project. Stitched on 28ct ecru cotton. [...]


春节前完成的零碎手工小物一堆。。。 双层手拿包一个,装上真皮的提手应该是最有范儿的,可惜木有,装了古铜万字链。包盖的磁扣如果换成一个大点的装饰用四合扣会更好,可惜也木有。       这只的手工自己很满意,款式也很实用,一层放手机,一层杂物零钱,中间一层正好放卡。 [...]

Hourglass wedding record

This hourglass pattern is an amazing design from stoney creek. The original words read: “Time spent with the Lord…is time well SPENT” This is all very nice. However, the roses, the hourglass, the white lace, all reminds me of how beautiful it will be if it’s a wedding record. So I decided to go ahead with it. I was [...]

Hydrangeas done~

Hydrangeas done~
  The finished size is larger than I thought. Think I used 32ct evenweave while the original DMC pack provides a 30ct linen evenweave. So following the designer’s idea, the finished work should be even larger….Overall it’s a good deco to be displayed on the… [...]
