Ladybug & Daisy - Ajisai Designs

Hello peeps!!
Thought I'd do a quick post to share with you my latest acquisition :)
While browsing the web (as you do when you're looking for stash!),
I've discovered an extremely talented lady.
Valentina Sardu
She specialises mainly in blackwork art...
but I have found she also do mix of blackwork & cross stitch!!
Of course, as I have never tried blackwork
I found this was a great opportunity to do a little bit of shopping
and try something new :)
Here it is,
Ladybug & Daisy
What do you think?
Isn't it just lovely?!
Well all I have to do now
is get some fabric to start this beauty.
Didn't mean to gloat about my latest stash purchase,
thought you'd like to know about this fabulous website :)

Poodle Love - Joan Elliott (JEC SAL)

Hello Peeps!
Here is my latest finish..


Love Poodle
from Joan Elliott

This is the February month from the 2015 calendar gifted
in issue 224 (Dec) of TWOCS magazine.

The second of 12 designs for my JEC SAL.

Stitched on 28ct Zweigart Brittney evenweave, pink colour
Using the preconised DMC threads,
worked 2 over 2

Finished off as a sweet little pinkeep
using white trim, pins & printed cotton fabric

Perfect fabric to match the design!

Attention to details with a little butterfly pin from Butterfly Couture

Now on its way to a new home...
Wonder where that might be! ;)
