Project of January.

I found this little type-case at fleamarket in December and thought it will be a nice project for January 2011. I decided to stitch the designs from Niky's Creations. This project became a mixture of designs from the Primitive Calendar and her booklet with Flowers.
The pieces had to be very small so I had to stitch all the designs at 36 and 40 count Zweigart natural linen and because the case is very dark I decided not to dye the linen with coffee.
This one is my favorite because of the colours and design. All the big pieces are about 9x9 cm and finished the way I liked using old buttons too.
The border are finished with buttenhole stitches. All the pieces were stitched with one thread over two except the strawberries.

These tiny ones are about 4.5x9 cm. Aren't they cute?

Long time ago I saw the first designs of Niky in the BBD book and later on I found some in the GOS and here they are, the strawberries. I hand-dyed some of the linen with coffee and tea and some with blueberries juice.
I hope you have enjoyed my project. Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate your sweet comments.

Today I have two exchangepieces to show. This one is from LK Winter wishes. I stitched it on lightblue linen using DMC threads and some beads. The pincushion travelled to USA and luckily it arrived safely at Katy's home.
This second beauty is from Marjorie. We met each other four times now with exchanges but I still don't get bored of her because I love her pieces. Isn't beautiful? The design is from Gazette 94 and filled with walnut shells, which is not available in Holland. So lucky me! Thanks Marjorie for everything! Shall we say: until next time again?
Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments.
