My first message

Hello, even though I've been following the blog for some time, only now I dared to leave my first message. You have to forgive the bad English. I leave a picture of one of my first MS, the finish was not as I wanted, but we learn from mistakes. It's in my box threads.


I just could not resist it...

I everyone, i decided to share with you my latest cross stich, since i saw it in here posted by another girl i knew that i have to make it to, i just fall in love with it...
Hope you like it...

I changed 3 colours and now i'm gone put a little ribon all over it and i´m thinking using it for christmas decoration... what do you think?

Easy ABC Quilt

Hi there!

This is my first study to boy’s quilt using Easy ABC (you can see all embroidered letters clicking on labels at the right side of this page: ‘Easy ABC’ or ‘Simone’). I hope you had enjoyed. I love MS designs! They are so cute, aren’t they?

I’ve chosen a light blue fabric and the squares are 30cm of side. I’ve put some of them on the floor to see how they're looking. I think the quilt needs more colours. I’m thinking to sew another fabric among the squares… What do you think?

"Bee Happy" Hedgehog

Finally another small finish, and I really do mean a finish!  After I finished stitching the Margaret Sherry "Bee Happy" hedgehog design I decided to "finish" him off as a little hanging pillow. 

For some strange reason the image of this cute hedgehog as a pillow had been "brewing" in my imagination since I started stitching him.  I knew exactly where to find the perfect piece of fabric to back the pillow with too.  In hubby's stash!!

So I had everything ready to go: one finished piece of stitching, beautiful backing fabric, needles and thread, and a couple of spare hours on a Sunday afternoon.  As sewing machines and I don't generally get on as a rule, I hand stitched the first three sides and then stuffed the pillow and blind stitched side number 4!

Voilà!  We now have a lovely finished hedgehog pillow.

"Bee Happy" designed by Margaret Sherry
Cross Stitcher, June 2010
Love this fabric!
 Hubby used it as the border on his "Cat's Meow" quilt.
This is such a happy design, don't you think?  I really loved stitching this design and enjoyed finishing it off as a pillow.  It's not very often that a design gives my imagination such a thump as this one did!  I am really pleased that I allowed my brain to "go with the flow" so to speak.  I do hope that my imagination keeps on bringing ideas to the surface as it might mean I will "finish" off a few more stitched items rather than filing them away in my completed project file.

New Haircut

Cross Stitcher Magazine has a new freebie by Margaret Sherry called "New Haircut", which can be found here.  It was posted on Monday and I have finished stitching it today (Wednesday).    The most difficult bit was the writing with all the french knots.  And here it is.

New Haircut!

Happy Stitching Everyone

Photographer Cat

New finish - Photographer Cat by Margaret Sherry.  One of the "Sports & Hobbies" designs.  I just had to stitch this cat.  It reminded me of myself.  Camera in hand and hoping to capture the right image, especially birds.  Isn't he gorgeous!

Happy Stitching Everyone

who's up for a SAL?

Hello ladies!

I have to say that I lost track on our last SAL, so much time has passed that I don't know who has finished it or not!
Besides me, Ana, Alda and Dinny, who else has finished all 3 cats?

A few ladies asked me about another SAL, I'm not sure who's up for it.. did you enjoy the first one? Would you like to make more? :)
I think August is a bad month to start, summer and holidays! heheheh But we could do it in September :) What do you think?

Feel free to leave ideas ;)

My recent finish.

i hope you all like it too.
