ABC

Wow, has it been that long…
Hello, how are you? I hope you all are doing well.

Last year I started this piece and made the first row of the design…

Finally I did manage to finish this small piece.

A small and cute piece! I love the alphabet font!

It’s a free design by PCBDijon called ABC 2019.
Stitched on 38 count Dalarna Zweigart linen that I coffee dyed. I did use DMC threads.

Thank you for your visit!
Happy stitching,
Lili

Hello!
I hope you’re not tired of Christmas!

My first finish for the new year!

A free design by Plum Street Samplers – Sunday Mystery Sampler / 12 Days of Christmas.
Stitched on Picture This Plus, 36 count Wren Edinburgh Linen with DMC, Weeks Dye Works and The Gentle Art threads.

I picked some of my favourite colours, like the red – cranberry and the green – bullfrog. Since I had some requests about the colours that I used, here is my thread list:

DMC 310
Weeks Dye works – 2202 Bullfrog
The Gentle Art: Sampler Threads – 0360 Cranberry
The Gentle Art: Sampler Threads – 0420 Gold Leaf
The Gentle Art: Sampler Threads – 0630 Peach Ice Cream
The Gentle Art: Simply Shaker- 7013 Green Apple

If you want to stitch this piece use your favourite Christmas colours, you can also take a look at the Just Cross Stitch July/August 2011 and Just Cross Stitch Magazine 2012 – Christmas Ornament Preview, the first and second day are on the magazine and you will be abble to see the colours used. I did the first and second day into ornaments and I stiched both with the recommend DMC colours.

Have a wonderful day! Happy stitching,

Lili

Happy Holidays

Hello!! Merry Holiday Season!!!

I stitch day 1 called “A Partridge in a Pear Tree, day 2 called Two Turtle Doves block, day 3 called Three French Hens and a little of day 6 called Six Geese a-Laying.
