Cant find time to stitch...

Hi... Posted everything within a day... Congrats to myself. Really wanted to start a blog on my Cross Stitch projects long long time ago... but I was pretty tight down with my Shop.

A brief recap... I started a Cross Stitch shop in mid 2007 in Kajang but decided to close it in May 2009. I cant cope after my Kakak left in April 2009. Actually I was struggling in mid 2008 when my mum was diagnose with cancer. My mum was the one backing me up taking care of my kids when I was working. (...thanks mum).

So with 3 young girls age 11, 7 & 4, a 2 1/2 storey semi-d and no backup system... its really tough having a full time business... really really not easy. So I decided to work from home. Beside taking care of my family & home... I get to work on my business too. Prefect plan but not materialising yet... still working on my website. Hope to get it up ASAP.

Once my website is up... hope I can sit back and relax a bit... and do some serious stitching. Really need to work on my WIP leh...


  1. Hope your mom is fine!

    How is your business?

  2. Hi... Chiloe

    My mum recover pretty well. All the chemo & radiation is really bad but she was really determine to recover. My dad gave her the love & support to stay posotive.

    As for my business... Its not really easy to run a needlecraft business that only sell cross stitch items in Malaysia. Top with personal problem in end of 2008 make me realise its not really worth spending the time & effort stuck in a shop from 10.30am - 7pm (Mon - Sat). So in May this year, I decided to move everything back home... to cut cost & balance my role as mum & wife.

    Since June till now I am working on my stock count & website... Yup still working on my Cross Stitch Business but ONLINE now...

  3. hi

    I am really impressed with your work. I am a crazy cross stitcher too. Like you I recently set up a blog with all my finished projects & WIP, more to my own viewing but I am rather lazy in updating the blog.
