bah. before my trip to australia, i was thinking of making a handmade prezzie for tiger. i sought a few advice and settled down on cross-stitch (plus i have a cross-stitch guru: jenny, who is willing to teach me :P)
decided to settle on a bookmark. with a tiger print on it 😉
for a few nights as i was busy cross-stitching away, a few friends msn-ed me and asked ‘what are you so busy with?’ and when i replied i was cross-stitching, a few of them were shocked.
“HUH? since when you cross-stitch?!”
“you gotta be kidding!”
“since when have you became domesticated?!”
“are you trying to do a jenny?!”
doh. tmd. i dont look like the kind meh? (i asked 10 peeps, and all said no. TMD TMD TMD!). anyway after a few hours, i finished it.
the almost completed work. (i added his name in here, can’t really show it to the world, aye? else my anonymous superhero will be revealed. LOL! inside joke :P)
so there! my first ever cross-stitch work done. 🙂 i know its rather untidy and its quite small but its my first attempt! 😛
but tmd, i think he’s more pleased with the shiranui akatsuki gundam model (ROAR!) that i got for him as a surprise instead. thanks to a certain kn who helped me plan the surprise. 😛
alrighty. time to start on my 2nd cross-stitching project. for myself this time! i will be taking a short break from blogging. ran out of juice after the daily accounts, plus the heaps of work to settle @ work… and i have not started unpacking. will be replying your comments soon! 😉
take care all!

I think the cross-stitch looks good.. I wanted to try my hand on knitting but i lost my patience after doing some practice.. guess i must start to use the threads :p
So if he’s Tiger….you’re the tortoise?
how..astute… u is a dead ah meng hahah 😀
astute: acutely perceptive and shrewd; marked by practical hardheaded intelligence.
Hm….does that sound like a compliment? 😛
only if i meant it as one 😀
ayeeeeeee nice oneeeeee!
keep it up. 2nd one for meeeeeee? 😛
Your crosstitch doesn’t look untidy at all. It looks quite nice infact.
Make that 11 peeps.
You cross-stitch??? Quick gimme 4 numbers, I go buy 4D. =P
Oh that cross stitch is cute. And the Gundam model rocks. As a guy, I’d always prefer the Gundam model too. Gonna be a pain trying to do texturing with gold paint.
tell me about it. lol. the outlining on the gold metallic surface is a pain, the marker doesn’t want to come out on the surface…
Aha! Do a Gundam cross-stitch next time, best of both worlds sia!
Nice work! The final product looks great! Sometimes, I guess what’s more important is believing in yourself. You’ll be amazed by the many more things you can do. 😉
