eeeeek. life happens!

Hi!  This is N. I am Samya's daughter and I want to write a quick message to all of you readers.  My mum recently hurt her right arm and she is on the mend.  Everything is going to be fine, but she is in a little bit of discomfort right now.  Typing does hurt for her, so I thought it would be good for her to be on a bit of a break from blogging.  But don't worry, she will be back next week with some amazing bags.  Also, she has a big surprise in store for you guys that she has been making me work on for the past two months.

Trust me, it is going to be really cool.

Thank you so much for your understanding, everyone!  My mum loves you all!

What do you know?

I participated in the  Apronology magazine's challenge, and the challenge was about designing a kitchen apron.
For my apron I took inspiration from my mother.
In the Spring I traveled to Egypt to visit my elderly mother, and I have not seen her for a while. It turned out to be the trip of a lifetime. I discovered old photographs and trinkets from my life growing up there. Each photo and artifact took me further down memory lane.
Anyway when I came back I only had a couple of month to whip an idea for the apron. It had to be mother. :-)
 If  my apron photos published, for sure  my mother will get the biggest kick out of it !!!!

Mighty Ducks

I have been working on this embroidery project for  over a week. I had this piece of linen for sometime, and when my sister-in-law sent me all these rich colors embroidery floss from England, I had to put them to a good use.  So everyday after dinner, I take around an hour or so to work in the project. I finally completed my project today . I am so proud of myself for sticking with this project, because I had not embroidered anything for a long while. Actually I have not decided what to do with it.  I will think of something :-).

I had to show you the back!!

I hope you like it, and I would love to know what do you think.
