My embroidery

Hello!
I would not want such a wonderful blog to die!
I have embroidered many designs from the Мargaret Sherry, and now I work on pictures for my kitchen. Five embroideries are ready, and now I'm starting "Sugar and Spice ..."






Have a nice day, everyone!
Sarita.

Here's my 2 done...


Wow, the camera has been acting up lately but these colours are way off! lol  Anyway, here's the little mouse I stitched but not finished up yet.  Not sure what I shall do with it as I already have the 3 mice designs stitched and as a hanging.   This Party Animal is the 3rd one I've done from the calendar,2008-2009. I think the next one is the dog on a chair.  Anyway, I'm still stitching along and always  love to get back to stitching the calendar ones.  I also have the Christmas Cat with tree, which I purchased a few years ago when Margaret Sherry was available as pdf online for a while.(I purchased at least 6-7 at that time.  It was nice to have them available so easily.)    I have it in my to-do pile so I hope I get to it soon.  Happy Stitching everyone! :)

Hello... long time no visit!

Wow.... it is so long since I have come over to this blog to say hello...  Looking at the blog feed I can see it was December 2015 when I last posted!  So to make up for it how about a finally finished Margaret Sherry piece!




I stitched these little mices over a couple of months and had originally planned to keep them as one piece for a bell pull... but then I changed my mind!  I finished them off as a hanger for a Christmas in July swap last month.


I must admit that these three little guys are my first MS stitching finishes for quite some time... I do have some WIPs sitting around that I must get back to one day!


Hope everyone is doing well!
Til next time...hugs xx

Cute WIP completed..

This little cutie was hiding in my WIPs but I found it yesterday and completed it today.  I did exchange dmc for most of the anchor colours as I only have a few anchor threads,  mostly for tatty teddys.  Happy stitching everyone! :)

Well, I couldn't wait to show you.  I started this a year or two ago, and as I'm working on started items, I stitched a few remaining stitches and then the backstitching so here she is!  Margaret Sherry, 2008-2009 calendar, this one is October 2008.  Happy Stitching all! :)

Send a Smile from Russia

Merry Christmas everyone!!

I had a lovely early Christmas present.... after months of thinking that the package Lena-Lentochka sent from Russia had been lost in the mail I finally received the package!

It took over 4 1/2 months to travel from Lena in Russia to myself in Australia... one very slow boat indeed!


Thank you Lena for the smile.... I am so pleased that it finally arrived safe and sound as when I was checking with the Post Office they had no record of it arriving in the country....

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas... all the best for 2016

Hugs xx

MS Stitching Update

Hi everyone!  Long time no posting... and long time no MS stitching!  But finally I have something to show you...

I have just looked back over the blog posts and noticed that the last time I posted on this blog was February 2015.... oh my goodness - I am hanging my head in shame!!

So who wants to see what MS stitching I have been doing over the last few months?

First up of course was the "Send a Smile" Exchange that I sent to Angel.  Link to Angel's post is here...


(Unfortunately I am yet to receive my exchange piece that Lentochka sent to me... given the length of time since it was posted I suspect it has been well and truly lost in mail - oh well these things happen)

While I have a couple of MS design in my stitching basket at the moment I haven't been very good at stitching on them....

Update below:

Spring Bouquet - last stitched on in April 2015


Merry Christmas Kitty (free kit) - last stitched on in July 2015


Trio of Christmas Mice (Free Kit) - finished in November 2015 (yippee!!)


As I said, not a lot of MS stitching done this year but at least I do have some finishes!!!  Hopefully next year will be a better year for MS stitching.


Til next time, happy stitching!
Hugs xx

Hello Everyone!

It's been a while since I posted on this blog. I can't believe my last post was in November 2013!
So, hello lovely ladies! Here's a warm greeting from Indonesia. I miss you all very much.

As of my latest finish of Margaret Sherry's design, here's a bookmark I stitched for a friend last week.
Chick lit bookmark from CrossStitcher magazine #231.


It's soooo nice to be back here again. Until next time!
Happy stitching!
