Completed Bags of Fun today!! Yay!!

Hi all.  I completed Bags of Fun today. Whew! It was lots of backstitching, and I bet you may notice I didnt stitch the whiskers.  I actually prefer the design without them.  I hope MS doesn't mind! :))  I'm now debating whether to make into cushion or frame it.  Happy Stitching to everyone!! :))

exchange update and tips :)


I posted yesterday but already have news and I thought I could share some tips for our exchange :)
First, Angel is in for our exchange too, she will make it work to go along with our dates :) (happy you can join sweetie!!)

Stitchers:
Nia
Noni
Heather
Angel
Judith (Musicwoman)
Ysabel
Preeti
Olimpia
Valérie

What to stitch:
I wanted to share some tips with you, about what to stitch and what piece to make.
First, you don't need to stitch a huge pattern, you can pick something small or even a piece of a pattern (we have done it here before). That's ok, your work will be different but also unique :) Make the pattern your own!!
For the finish, don't stress about it, don't over do it to make something you don't feel confortable. Go simple, make something nice and pretty. Of course you can make a big and complex gift if you want ;) but for those who don't have much time or amazing skills (we are all different), go simple and pretty, it's ok.
The import here, is to have fun making your gift/parcel and make your friend smile!!! :D
Enjoy!!! Have fun!!!

exchange update!!


Hi everyone!
Again, sorry for taking so long to update here.. it has been difficult to have some free time with my boy walking everywhere! Only 14 months but he walks too fast!!! I spend my day running behind him :p

I gave a long time for everyone to sign up but not many stitchers joining.. probably not having as much free time as they wished? I know how that is :p well, but I will still try to participate and do my best :) So far, 9 friends for the exchange, I still have to check with Angel because everyone else prefered a later deadline..

14 more days to sign up here!!

Coffee & Cuddles


"This cute scene has real "ah" factor and looks great decorating a kitchen or hallway."

Hello everyone!

What about cup of coffee? Or cup of cat? :-D These cats sitting in the cups are so lovely. Two ginger and two grey cats make me smile and what about you?

You can find this design in the book The best of Margaret Sherry.

Have a nice Sunday!

Winter and Spring

Today I can show you two of my finishings.
As I had and have a real bad time I really enjoyed stitching these cute guys. I did them 1/1. They always brighten my mind when seeing them.
 And I will do the second spring  bunny very soon.
I hope that I can show you some more of our favourite designer.
The WINTERJOY  I bought and the SPRINGJOY is a free gift of CrossstitchCrazy 203
Huggs to all of you

Photographer Cat

Hello everyone!

I like photography and I had to stitch this cat from book The Best of Margaret Sherry (section Sports & Hobbies). This design is a little bit nostalgic for me. It was the second cat from Margaret Sherry which I did, it´s so long ago :-).

Original post here.

Have a good time!

Send a Smile Exchange - new dates!!


Hello ladies!
Sorry for taking a while to update on the group exchange (especially to Pretti whom I haven't replied yet), I had a couple of hard weeks (baby teething =/) and by the end of the end I'm just too tired to think about anything.

Everyone is welcome to join our exchange, you just need to be (or become) a group member and there's no problem if you haven't posted anything on the group for a while... maybe now you'll have something to make you want to post more often ;)

Preeti asked for a longer deadline, until mid July or even the end of the month... I'm all in favor, I just worry if August will be a month for others to go on vacation =/ So, asking to everyone who already signed up, would you be ok with a new date? Posting until July 31th?
If you're going on vacation, you can post before, no problem! I just worry if everyone will be around in August, to get their parcel on the mailbox. Please, comment about this here!! Thank you ladies :)

If we set a longer date to post, I'll set a longer date to sign in as well. My suggestion is below.
