Crafts Update!

Just got back from Melaka - went down on Saturday, and have been doing nothing but reading emails since - 200 odd of them! I started the LDSAL from top left hand corner on 14 or 16 ctn Aida. How do I know if its 14 or 16 ctn? Anyone please? So far that's all I managed!

Finished my Boxy Lady x-stitch piece and nothing else done on the box! Could not decide which box to cover (or tin for that matter!). Think eventually it will be a cardboard box! And following in MW's footsteps - paper! though I have picked out a luxurious fabric! Will an etui counts as a boxy lady? Truly inspired by Dania (from SNC).

Bedspread is now a two-block of 4 squares. And finally got the actual measurements - mmph now where did I put that piece of paper!
And picked up these six DMC purples (with 3 of them in variegated DMCs at Merlimau at RM1.00 per skein!) for another mystery sampler with another group of ladies online! Did some reading on the way back today. Nothing else to report.

That's quite good progress of the LDSAL for just one day! Love the shades of purple, very elegant colour indeed!

Love your LDSAL ... Such a fast progress since it was done in one day !! Hey ... just count how many boxes in 1 inch to know whether the fabric is 14 or 16ct.

Ooh, Dania's mom! Thanks for visiting! Is RM1.00 per skein the cheapest for DMC? I bought them at a LNS in Merlimau (en route to Jasin & Muar!)
