A basket with Christmas gifts for my family.

Here is the basket with the little pincushions, which I stitched as gifts for me and my family.
This little angel in the clouds is from Heart in Hand. It's stitched on 36 count linen using the recommended threads except her dress. I used Raspberry parfait instead of Antique Rose because I think the coulour fits better with the linen.

These two pincushions are for my daughter and son in law because they got their two kittens before Christmas. Because the kittens are white I change the colour of the cats in white. This one is stitched with DMC threads using some beads and button. The chart was pusblished in JCS ornaments 2009
This cat is stitched with Whisper. For both works I used 36 count Zweigart linen. The charts are from Brittercup Designs.
Look at this cute chart from Angel Stitchin called Santa's Buddie from JCS ornaments 2009.
Stitched on Zweigart linen using GA Wool, Crescent Colour and DMC with some beads and button.

Diane Williams designs this chart especially for Unicef project. The money is being used to provide clean drinking water to 300 children in West Africa. The cushion is stitched on 36 count Zweigart linen using the recommended threads.
Now the basket is empty waiting for the next stitchingpieces. Have a nice sunday and thanks for your comments, I really appreciate them.

Christmas ornie's

I made this little pincushion for myself. The chart is from Stone and Thread. It's stitched on 32 count hand-dyed linen using the recommanded threads except for the star. It's stitched with metallic golden thread from Vaupel en Heilenbeck.
I send this ornie to my friend. She has already received it so I can show you. The chart is from Country Cottage Needleworks called The Nutcracker. I have only stitched a part of it on 36 count Edinburgh linen using DMC threads and some beads in the tree. It's cute isn't it?

Wish you all : A MERRY CHRISTMAS.

December 2009

Last month of the year and it's snowing outside again . The garden becomes a white world and I love it.
No where to go than to sit down and to do some stitching. I have stitched 7 little cushions for my family but cann't show you except this one. I use my quiltlesson, which is called paper-piecing technique and combine it with the stitchingpiece. The design is stitched on 32 count Zweigart vintage linen using DMC variations. The chart is from the French book: Rouge.
Wishing you: Happy Stitching.

Received from Ruth

The package from Ruth arrived with suprises. A lovely ornie (chart is published in JCS 2009 ) She made some changes, which made the pincushion absolutely gorgeous. She wrote me that she has filled in one window in the house. It looks like someone is at home waiting for you. I think it's such a sweet thought. I also received a card an CC threads. I felt very spoiled by her. Thanks so much Ruth!!!
