Always on the move!

I have many hobbies. I am always doing something. I simply do not know how to realx, as my husband puts it. I am always on the move! LOL! Even while I am watching TV, my hands are busy doing something - reading, sewing, stitching, eating! LOL!

One of my favourite hobby (yep! I sure have lots of hobbies! *grin*) is cross stitching. I find it simply therapeutic, especially after a stressful day at the office. I have been doing cross stitch for as long as I could remember, but, I stopped for a while when I was furthering my studies in Architecture. Architecture is one course that simply does not leave you with much time for leisure, what with all those projects and presentations you have to put up weekly, not to mention all those late nights spent preparing for the project presentations!

I caught the cross stich bug again some 10 years back. My interest got even more intensified when I found friends on the net just as crazy about cross stitch as I am! Since joining a stitching group online, I have made many new friends and I have been inspired to try many new things and techniques in this pleasurable hobby. Here are some of my finished pieces. Take a look!


This is only my 3rd posting in this blog which I have set up since January 2005. I have been meaning to write more, but time simply wasn't on my side. I have written about a lot of other things - my hobbies, my sentiments about the recently completed Akademi Fantasia fever, the recent shifting of my mother-in-law to her new house, projects I am involved in, pantuns and what not that I need to get off my chest! *wink*

My husband has been encouraging me to compile all my works so that our children and grandchildren would someday be able to appreciate what my thoughts and feelings were about life, and hopefully, will be able to provide some guidance and also some humour *wink* in our future generation's every day life.

I love to write (guess I got that from my dad who I simply adore!). I love to put into words my thoughts. My mind is constantly `writing', be it as I am driving to and from work, while cooking, while watching TV, while stitching, doing up my son's scrapbook, sewing, patchworking (yep! I love anything crafty! ), and of course in the bathroom! LOL!

I love sharing my thoughts with people, though not everyone shares the same thoughts as I, but, heck, everyone is entitled to their own opinions, right? *grin*

I am still trying to figure out this blog thingy. I am still new at this blog thing. I am playing around with how to make this blog more interesting. In time, I hope I will be able to make this blog an interesting stop for everyone who has been here.

Till then, hope you will drop by again as I add more things!
