I was crazy about cross stitch many years ago.
The middle one is Hinamatsuri, the Doll's Festival for girls which falls on 03March every year in Japan.
The last one is Koi Nobori, Carp-shaped streamer Festival for boys which falls on 05May every year in Japan.

Rabbit, mouse and squirrel kits are from my sister, Christine.
She got them from Daiso, USA.
The poodle kit is from my Japanese friend from Kyoto.

I have been quite slacking in my beading. It has been almost 6 months since I worked on any real projects. I thought I'd forget how to decipher those right angle weave, or those thingamajigs, with a red and blue line weaving from point a -> z. My eyes were glazed over when I opened up a kit that my sis gave me during my trip to Penang in July09. She is ever so generous. Even I said "No" to some of the "bling-bling" she insisted on giving me (yes, malu to take so much from her), yet when I am back and opened my luggage, there it is, surprise from her. She just stuffed it in. Thanks sis. [blushing] I finally managed to get my act together (didnt want to dissapoint my sis, that I am such a slack student), I did made something. The beer mug is done, and some others too. I love the butterfly pendant. It is so easy to make. For someone like me who is always trying to find time - hard to juggle btw my beading life, family time, work, and watching korean dramas, I have to do something fast, easy, and most of all must be v cantik too. -- one has to be kiasu no matter what. that's one of my mottos - or survival in life. These pics were taken by my 13yr old daughter using her DSI. The resolution is not that high, and quite pixelated. But it serves it purpose. I have made two more butterflies - using olivine and ruby this morning. It turned out quite charming. That's it - will be xmas gifts. The honey bee is quite charming too...
okay, no birds yet .. the kits are still in Penang! .. is ladybug a bird?
