A quick post to show my latest cross stitch work.

A new model from Lizzie Kate, Snowman ’10. 🙂 I love the colours!

I stitched on 28ct linen from Permin of Copenhagen – Natural undyed.
Fibers from DMC, The Gentle Art, Weeks Dye Works and Crescent Colours.

Finished into a little pillow. One more ornament for Christmas.

Have a nice week!

Christmas Deer Ornament

Another ornament for Christmas. 🙂

The latest number of  The Gift of Stitching is the annual Christmas issue (issue 58 – November 2010).
Has several projects and they are very beautiful.
My choice, the model of Nicoletta Farrauto – Niky’s Creations (one of my favourite designers).

For the “Deer Christmas Ornament” I used linen and DMC threads (the recommended colours).

Around the ornament, I used a Rickrack.
I bought at the online store by Nathalie Cichon – Jardin PrivĂ©.
From the collection of Nina – Rickrack Freezing Chocolat (hand dyed by Nina: fibers, laces, rickracks).

Thank you so much for visiting!



Christmas is coming!

A small Christmas ornament from the Magazine Just Cross Stitch 2009.

The model is by Mosey ‘n Me – Rejoice.

I used 32 ct Belfast linen – Light Mocha/Mushroom (Zweigart), DMC fibers and beads with pearl effect – the beads are from the time of my teenage years…)

It was not quite perfect, but it was the first time I did something with this form.

But I loved the final result.

Thank you for your comments and visits! Have a good week!

Pin Pillow…


A quick post to show my last work.

The model is Coussin Ă  Aiguilles by Danybrod.

She have gorgeous models, I recommend a visit to the blog and online store.

The fabric was a gift, I think it is 25ct Lugana evenweave in white (but I am not sure) and I used the recommended fibers (DMC).

Replacing my initials with a letter L charm (Charm by La Croix & La manière).

A small lace, fabric and two buttons were my choices in my favourite local shop.

Thanks for the visits and comments!
