The first pieces of 2011, which I made for the contest of Niky's Creations. The freebie is called evergreen. I made two different pieces with this chart. When I see trees and a squirrel it's remind me of all the colours of the autumn.
So I chose for an autumn bag using coffee-dyed 32 count Zweigart linen and hand-dyed threads of my choice. The model of the bag is a little bit like the end of an acorn and finished with felt.
I finished the second pieces rather tradional using DMC thread. It was fun doing these pieces although I didn't win any prizes.
Thanks for visiting me again and for your sweet comments.

New Year brings new challenges

Happy New Year to you all. May 2011 brings you happiness and creative challenges. This year I decide to make more times for myself to stitch bigger pieces, to sew more and to make more quiltingspieces. So I will not participate in too many exchanges although it's always fun to join a group of stitchers.
Will this year be a Primitive Year? Look at these beautiful charts, which I got as Christmas gifts. Aren't they lovely?

In March I will take class from Niky. You maybe remember her designs, which you saw before in the BBD book Joyeux Noel. If you want to see more of her designs you can look at
These two pieces are also from her design. The left one is for myself and the right one is for Barbara.
