DMC | Boofle Sampler


Today, I went for a bit of shopping to the local Hobby Craft shop
http://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/
and bought a baby sampler!
I opted for a medium sized model from DMC, Boofle collection
http://www.dmc.com/
My little sister's new arrival is due late July / early August, so I will be stitching like mad
Let's hope I can finish it on time!
Promise, I will keep you informed
| Happy Stitching! |

Aujourd'hui petit achat pour l'arrivée imminente
de mon petit neveu!
J'èspère pouvoir le terminé à temps

Vervaco or Lanarte | Sepia Greek Statues



This is a finished and framed cross stitch that I've made a long time ago.
It is now on display at home.
Apologies for the flash on the picture!!
It took me ages to finish it as I got bored with the colours
So many shades of brown, a real nightmare... 
It came as a kit and I think it was either from Vervaco or Lanarte, Greek Statues (http://www.lanarte.com/)
| Happy Stitching ! |

Celui ci est enfin terminé
Il m'a pris des années à finir et
tous ces tons marrons m'ont rendu folle!

Heritage Stitchcraft | Greek Steps


This other kit is also on the go but have left it aside a bit for now.
It is from Heritage Stitchcraft and is called Greek Steps (http://www.hcrafts.com//).
Nearly half way through this one and who knows, if the sun make an appearance it might tempt me to work on it a bit more!
| Happy Stitching! |

C'est un autre kit sur lequel je travaillais
mais m'en suis un petit peu lassé
Bientôt arrivé à la moitié



Maia | Close To You



This is the cross stitch I am currently working on.
I absolutely LOVE it!
It is from the Maia brand, Nel collection and is titled Close To You (http://www.maiaembroidery.com/)
The finish picture is fab, although I still have a long way to go
I am only a quarter of the way through...
Bear with me, it will take a few months before I finish it!

Happy Stitching!

Voici mon dernier projet
Je l'ADORE!
Le design est magnifique mais j'ai encore beaucoup à faire...
Soyez patient et qui sait dans quelques mois
une photo montrera le résultat final!

A tout à l'heure



I ♥ Cross Stitch


Picture and work from eclecticmaker.co.uk

I first discovered Cross Stitch more than 10 years ago
when one of my colleague was creating some beautiful things...
I decided to give it a go and haven't stopped since!!
All my cross stitch are from kits
(I'm not that adventurous and creative yet)
and are either up on my walls, offered to love ones
and even sold as far away as Hawaii!! ☺
Shame I did not always take pictures of the finish ones...
I have learnt from my mistakes - so pictures to follow soon!
Happy stitching!

J'ai découvert le point de croix il y a plus d'une dizaine d'années
lorsque j'ai vu une de mes collègues créé des modèles magnifiques...
J'ai décidé d'essayer and je ne me suis pas arrêté depuis!!
Tous mes points de croix font parti de kits
(je ne suis pas encore assez créative)
et les travaux finis sont accrochés, offerts ou
même vendu... aussi loin que Hawai!! ☺
C'est domage que je n'ai pas pu prendre de photos de tous mes travaux...
