A little Furry Tales finish

 
Now that both winners of my recent giveaway have received their goodies,
I can show you one of the little thing I'd made earlier on that I couldn't tell you about!
 
This is a Furry Tales little freebie design I found in my stash of magasines
I finished it off as a little cushion (and even used the ladder stitch too :P)
 
I was so thrilled with my work, I had to share it with someone!
Who was the best person to share this picture with???
The designer Lucie Heaton of course :)
 
She was really kind &
posted this little cutie on her Facebook wall
along with other lovely finishes
How sweet!!
 
Happy Stitching!
Mii xx

Une petite grille gratuite que j'ai trouvé dans mes revues de point de croix!
C'est une grille de Lucie Heaton, collection Furry Tales

Trop gentil :)

Friday's little finish


Yesterday my husband went on errands and came back home with
the April Cross Stitch Crazy magazine
(did I ever say he could be very kind sometimes?)

I spotted this cute little Russian Doll & couldn't help myself,
I had to stitch it!
I've finished her off as a little ornament
Isn't she sweet?


Back to Love Heart for now
I really want to finish it this weekend
Fingers crossed, you might find a post about it soon!

Happy Stitching!
Mii x


Que faire d'autre à part broder lorsque:

a/ Une petite journée repos bien méritée
b/ Adorable mari vous achète le dernier numéro de Cross Stitch Crazy???

Après avoir feuilleté ma revue, j'ai craqué sur cette petite poupée Russe

A tout à l'heure...

Goodies in the post...



Good afternoon blog friends!
I hope you're enjoying your weekend?
Here the sun is out & for once it is not raining or snowing :)

Now back from my son's rugby match... They won!!
After all this morning's fresh air, we were starving & enjoyed a very filling raclette
We are all stuffed & digesting...



















I came back from work Friday afternoon & found out I had some post!
My weekend couldn't start on a nicer note (after an other horrible work week)!!!

After all, isn't the lambing season approaching??


Heather, a big thank you & hug

Little update on Love




A little overdue update on
Love Heart from the Historical Sampler Company

This is where I am now

No stitching plan for this evening.
Family DVD time watching Madagascar 3 ☺
Have a stitch-tastic weekend!

Where to next?


That's it, I've finished my little stitching!
I know, I have been so quick!
To be honest, it has been a joy to work on such a small project
The only bit I wasn't too keen on was the triangle edge all around... my eyes did suffer a bit ☺
As I like the colour selection so much,
I'm aftraid I have not been adventurous and used the recommended DMC threads
I totally-absolutely-have fallen in love with #924 brethren blue!
It really look great
Stitched it on 32 count permin linen lambswool
& used leftover fat quarter fabric for the backing 


Now who's turn is it?
Who will stitch this little design next?
Are you interested?... 
Well, in that case leave a comment on this post to tell me so!
You have until Thursday the 21st February
I will announce the lucky stitcher on Friday the 22nd February

Happy Stitching!
Mii x

Travelling Pattern


On Saturday the postman gave me a wet envelope...
It was the Lizzie Kate Life's a Stitch Travelling Pattern that Emma kindly forwarded to Mii!

I can't wait to get started on this little snippet
Made a quick stop to the local stash shop yesterday to buy the missing threads

I will enjoy my late afternoon stitching away on this cutie!
Thank you again Emma ☺
Stay tuned because soon this chart will have to find a new temporary home...


Valentine's Day is approaching & my lovely other half has already spoilt me!

Thank you darling!!

Happy Stitching!

Shabby chic owl


I am so glad the weekend is here!
It has just been a horrible week work wise for me and let's just say I'm glad to be away from the office for a couple of days

I have been busy stitching on Love Heart (yes, I keep promising it: an update will be posted soon)
I have also made a cute little stuffed owl too...

I have been admiring these owls on several blogs!
They are soo adorable, I fell in love with them all
I've been browsing the net and found on Stubbornly Crafty a great pattern to make these cuties

So I gave it a go and tada!! It was easy and fun to make
Although, I've cheated as my sewing machine skills to stitch in circle are non-existent
I've used double sided tape for eyes, beak and wings. I'm so chuffed with the end result!!!
I didn't stitch the feet (I wasn't feeling that brave)
The back is the same fabric as the wings and I've used a mix of fabric & felt

Off to make pancakes for this evening's tea and stitch a little bit too of course

Happy Stitching!
Mii x


Enfin le weekend!! Et quelle semaine ca a été!!!
J'ai ajouté des petites croix sur Love Heart (une mise à jour pour bientôt, promis!)
Je me suis aussi aventurée sur le net pour faire ces petits hiboux que l'on voit partout!
N'hésitez pas à utiliser le lien ci-dessus, il est super
J'ai triché un peu et utilisé du scotch double face mais je suis ravie du résultat final!
Qu'en penzer-vous?
N'est-il pas adorable ce petit hibou??

A tout à l'heure...

Cushion cover



Another week finished and another weekend finally here,
it can only mean one thing: Stitching time!! (well I'm hoping!)

Apologies to all my online friends who come & view my blog regularly and also take time to always leave some sweet comments.
I had to switch the dreaded "word verifier" on again as I'm receiving anonymous unwanted comments
I know we all hate it, but I'm hoping it might put them off :)

Plenty of stitching done this week (every evening) on Love Heart
I'll share my progress in a future post...



I have made my first cushion cover too!
I looked through my stash and found a fabric remnant from Laura Ashley called Cottonwood Natural
I decided to give it a go & played with my sewing machine.
I'm still not 100% happy with my finishing
 - Always seems to be my problem! I wish they could come up with invisible stitches! Do such things exist? -



Time to prepare lunch & then a fun afternoon full of cross stitching & 6 Nations Rugby!

Happy Stitching!
Mii x

Alors voice ma toute première housse de coussin!
J'ai utilisé du tissu Laura Ashley
Je suis à peu contente du résultat mais la finition reste encore à désirer!!

A tout à l'heure!
