Salem

Model by The Sampler Girl – A Halloween Boo-klet  – Salem 1692 Show Towel.
The Halloween Boo-klet says to finish the pattern like a kitchen towel… well, my finish is a kitchen bag.
Stitched on 30 count Ivory from Tessitura Artistica Chierese with DMC colours.
For the “aged look” I used Distress Ink – Antique Linen.

Happy Halloween to all those who celebrate it!!

See you soon!

Adam and Eve

The model is from The Sampler Girl – Naughty or Nice? aka The Adam and Eve Ornament.
Stitched on 30 count Linen Ivory from Tessitura Artistica Chierese.
The pattern called for Weeks Dye Works colours, but I used the DMC colours provided, only replacing the Concord colour for DMC 3740.
Thank you for your comments on my last post.
A happy weekend!
 

Ornament

This ornament is from the Magazine Just Cross Stitch 2009.

I made for a friend earlier this year (first and second photo).

I love this Christmas ornament so I decided to make one for me (last photo).

The name of this model is “Early American Motif Ornament” from The Sampler Girl.

Stitched on 28 ct white linen from Graziano with the recommend DMC threads.

Thanks for visiting and for your comments!

Nice Sunday and a great week!

♦ Christmas ♦

Today I had a problem with the blog template.

So I decided to change it, hope your like this one!

During the year I will try to stitch a ornament for Christmas, one per month.

This is a freebie: Christmas Eve Flight by Tanya – The Sampler Girl.

The fabric is a Portuguese linen, I do not know the “count” of this linen…

With DMC fibers, numbers that I chose: 498, 801 e 809.

I forgot to take pictures yesterday of the other part of the ornament.

So today I did a picture from the cute fabric. Well, I think is cute!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a wonderful weekend!
