SAL Sweet Treats | N° 3


Apologies for being off for so long!
I guess you all had a lovely Christmas
I'm slowly catching up with all your posts
Well, here is my last gingerbread man from the Sweet Treats SAL
I can't believe it took me 2 weeks to stitch him...
I kind of got distracted with the family & the festivities :)

| Happy Stitching! |


Mille excuses pour avoir été absente pour aussi longtemps!
Je devine que vous avez tous passé un bon Noël
Je me remets doucement à jour avec tous vos blogs, il y a du boulot :)
Voici mon dernier petit bonhomme en pain d'épices
du Sweet Treats SAL
Il m'a fally plus de 15 jours pour le terminer...
Je me suis laissé déborder avec la famille & les fêtes de fin d'année

December TUSAL, Tree & Present


A slightly late December Tusal
Last one for this year!
I can't believe I actually managed to fill this jar as much as I did
I only joined in June too!!
So I'm quite pleased with my hard work ☺


We managed to put our tree up last night!
Here are some pictures,
you might recognise a few ornaments I stitched earlier on


I've also received a little parcel from the States on Friday.
This is the prize I won from
during a recent giveaway!
Cute kit called Wonderland from the Trilogy
I will definitely work on it next year, so it could
be done by next Christmas
Thank you again Shirlee for this lovely present!

| Happy Stitching! |

Dernier TUSAL pour cette année!
C'est une très bonne idée de garder tous ces fils,
comme ca on se rend compte de toutes ces heures passées à broder..
Notre sapin est fait, tout beau avec les quelques déco que j'ai brodé!
Enfin, un grand merci à Shirlee pour m'avoir sélectionné
comme gagnante de ce petit kit saisonnier de chez The Trilogy...
Je vais attendre Noël 2013 pour le faire :)

That's it!
I've finally finished the other two reindeer cards

Enfin, mes deux derniers petits rennes sont terminés.

les voeux de Noël!

Parcel from Agneta

I am so happy today!
I arrived home and found a parcel waiting for me

This is a fabulous present from Agneta
Check out her blog My Litte Creative World
At the origin of the SAL Sweet Treats too!
She is so talented! (I love her owls on her blog banner)

She recently did a giveway for these stunning scarves
I didn't win but Agneta kindly sent me some anyway...
With some Polish choccies I can't wait to taste!!

These are so warm & soft.
There is a black one with a discreet silvery trim and
a grey, dusty pink one
(Apologies, my pic don't do them justice)
Thank you again Agneta these are Beautiful

Now, all I have to do is send her a little thank you parcel!!!

| Happy Stitching!


Aujourd'hui je suis ravie!!
J'ai recu un petit colis de la part d'Agneta
Elle m'a gentillement offert 2 superbes écharpes
faites par ses 10 petits doigts! 
Elles sont magnifiques, toutes douces & bien chaudes!
Il y avait aussi du chocolat de Pologne...
Délicieux ☺
Milles mercis Agneta!

Busy Busy Busy...

Apologies for being so quiet this past week,
but I have been busy crazy!!
Work was busy, had to drive around to attend meeting & events,
office Christmas party, School Christmas play...
Leaving me very little free time for cross stitching!

I did managed to wrap all the presents & send out all the cards!
Now, my house is a bomb site & have to go on a
Wintercleaning mode before the family arrive in 2 weeks!!
This should be fun :)
I guess it serves me right for letting it all pile up...

My hubby got the Christmas decorations down from the attic
so all we need now is ... the Tree!!
If everything goes to plan, we should have a free slot on Sunday
I hope to post a few pic to share with you

Now, last week's rotation, I was supposed to work on my last gingerbread man.
Well, because of all the above I have worked very little
and I'm very ashamed to show you my "progress"
I hope I'll find time to finish it this week
(in between all this cleaning :P)

It still a work in progress... No matter how much photo editing I do
It is still a head!!


I've also managed to stitch my second little reindeer card
This is where I'm at at the moment
This should be finished very soon along with the third one!

| Happy Stitching! |


En cette pleine période de préparations pour les
fêtes de Noël, j'ai malheureusement eu très peu
de temps disponible pour faire des petites croix...
Voici mes derniers progrès!

Bauble


I've made this quick little ornament
using the bauble template available on
one of the recent post from Nurdan's blog!!

I've finished it off with some green felt, ribbons & bells
One more little decoration for my Christmas tree ☺


Happy Stitching!

Je viens de terminer cette petite déco pour mon sapin
Une petite boule en point de croix,
de la feutrine ainsi que
des rubans et des petites cloches...
Et voila!!!

Swiss Cottage & Reindeer

Last week I worked on this cute little reindeer
It came as a freebie with the Cross Stitcher magazine (Nov issue)
As you can see on the pictures, I still have 2 more to do!
This was a fun quick little project and I'm hoping to finish
it in time for my postman's next round!
 Last week's rotation was on Swiss Cottage
A cross stitch my mum is still waiting for...
I've managed to progress on one of the flowers
in between a busy Life schedule!!

Off to do more little crosses...
Have a lovely weekend

La semaine dernière j'ai fait une petite carte de voeux
avec ce petit renne! Un petit cadeau du magazine Cross Stitcher (Nov)
Le résultat est plutot chouette mais j'en ai encore 2 à faire :)
Aussi travaillé sur Swiss Cottage, j'ai trouvé un petit peu
de temps pour faire quelques croix sur une nouvelle fleur...

Happy Stitching!
