An extremely pleased teacher...

It all started when "tadpole" said to me "Wouldn't it be nice to make something for my teacher for Halloween!" What a sweet idea, I know he really likes his teacher this year
I planned on stitching a little Halloween item, buying a few Halloween chocolates and wrapping everything in clear film (the type florists use) with orange tissue paper & ribbons! That sounds good, doesn't it?
I went to the local shopping centre & visited Hotel Chocolat WOW!!! It was Halloween Chocolate Heaven!! It was so hard to decide what to purchase, there was so much choice, it was full of tempting pieces... I finally made my mind up & bought these cuties:
A cute diddy chocolate pumpkin called a Yumpkin (No need to say who popped in my mind straight away, I'm sure you've all guessed!)  and

these white chocolate ones, Yikes!!! I was really pleased with these and started my stitching...
I've decided to make a little ornament with 2 items from the Halloween S…

Yes, I had to change my blog template once again It seems it will no longer be free, so I had to find something else!
Here is my update on Nathalie's SAL Part 2 has taken a little longer to stitch due to all these letters Photo is still blurry - Sorry Stitched on 16 ct white aida with all DMC colours
Off to find out who my partners will be on the Home Sweet Home Exchange!
Happy Stitching! Mii 

Voici ma mise à jour sur le SAL organisé par Nathalie Cette deuxième partie m'aura pris un petit peu plus de temps à broder... Toutes ces lettres! :) Désolé pour la pauvre qualité de ma photo - Je mis suis reprise à plusieurs fois!! J'ai sérieusement la tremblotte :)

Moutons de Saisons, Automne - Tralala

Image
I'm back with a little finish! This is the Autumn version of the seasonal sheep designs from Tralala Stitched on white aida 16 count using all preconised DMC colours Finished yet again as another cushion

I've also joined a new exchange
Home Sweet Home from Céline at Les Petits Bonheurs de Céline There is still time to join the fun,
just hop here!

Happy Stitching!
Mii x


Enfin de retour avec un autre projet terminé!
Voici la version Automne des Moutons de saisons de chez Tralala
Je l'ai brodé sur toile Aida blanche 16ct & utilisé les brins DMC recommandés
Une fois de plus, une finition coussin s'est imposée!
Je suis un peu décue du résultat
 J'aurais du avoir l'intelligence de choisir une toile crême ou écru
afin de faire ressortir la laine du petit mouton... Quel domage!

Je me suis inscrite pour l'échange

organisé par Céline à Les Petits Bonheurs de Céline
Il reste encore du temps pour nous rejoindre!!!
