Busy as a bee - Lizzie Kate

 
 
 
Good morning Peeps!
 
 
Here is my latest finish
 
Busy as a bee
 
 

Stitched on 16 count Aida fabric from Sew It All
Rustico colour

Using recommended DMC threads, 2 over 1

I have also opted to use Kreinik thread as I wanted the bugs wings to be sparkly
(which obviously doesn't show well on my pictures!)

 
 

Started on the 11/06/2016
Finished on the 13/06/2016


 

Finished off as a small pincushion
using bee printed fabric from my stash

 
Toodles,
Mii

Poussière De Fée - Nimuë

 
 
 
 
Hello Peeps!
 
 
I have been busy working on something new these past few days
Let's have a look...
 
 
 
 
Poussière De Fée (Fairy Dust)
From Nimuë
 
 
 
 
My model was stitched on 16 count Aida fabric
from my favourite supplier Sew It All
Cabbage colour
 
Worked 1 over 1, using a mix of DMC & Kreinik threads
 
The instructions requested the use of mohair thread,
which after a few crosses, I found awful to use and not pretty to look at,
so I instead opted to use Kreinik metallic
 
Afterall, fairies and sparkles are a perfect match! 
 


 
Finished of pinkeep style with
a first and poor attempt at twisted ribbon
 




Ooops!
I have just noticed all my pictures are showing
a tiny piece of turquoise thread...
(from the piece of fabric I have used on the reverse)
 
Started on the 26th May 2016 and
finished on the 3rd June 2016
 
Toodles,
Mii

Superheroes



Hello Peeps!


Today is a post for Lego fans
 as I have finally been able to stitch some of these
famous little plastic characters!


After the fun of stitching them,
I put together a Lego themed parcel for Justine's children.
I thought it would be a great surprise for them.


Marvel Spiderman Lego Minifigure
Stitched on 16 count Aida fabric from sew It All, antique white
2 over 1 using DMC threads

Simply framed with colourful background paper





 DC Superman Lego Minifigure
Stitched on 16 count Aida fabric from Sew It All, antique white
2 over 1 using DMC threads




Again, simply framed with coloured background paper



The surprise Lego parcel has been a success.

All goodies have been happily opened
and played with :)


Toodles,
Mii

Plant A Tree - Lizzie Kate

 
 
 
Good morning Peeps!
 
 
A small finish to share with you all 
 
Plant A Tree
Green Flip It Series
 
 
This is how I left it back in January,
It was my CJC 2016 start #5
 
 
 
 
Stitched on 16 count Aida fabric from Sew It All
Clay colour
 
2 over 1, using DMC threads
 
And this is how it looks now it is finished
 
 
 
 
Started: 5 Jan 2016
Finish: 15 May 2016
Total stitch time: 5h25mn
 
 
Now wish I had chosen a darker colour of fabric for this design
as we can hardly see the wings of the little insects...
Oh well, I've learnt from my mistake!
 
I will "finish off" these cute designs once the whole series will be stitched.
 
This is now my CJC 2016 finish #6!
 
 
Toodles,
Mii
