SAL Sweet Treats | N° 3

Apologies for being off for so long! I guess you all had a lovely Christmas I'm slowly catching up with all your posts Well, here is my last gingerbread man from the Sweet Treats SAL I can't believe it took me 2 weeks to stitch him... I kind of got distracted with the family & the festivities :)

Mille excuses pour avoir été absente pour aussi longtemps! Je devine que vous avez tous passé un bon Noël Je me remets doucement à jour avec tous vos blogs, il y a du boulot :) Voici mon dernier petit bonhomme en pain d'épices du Sweet Treats SAL Il m'a fally plus de 15 jours pour le terminer... Je me suis laissé déborder avec la famille & les fêtes de fin d'année

December TUSAL, Tree & Present

A slightly late December Tusal Last one for this year! I can't believe I actually managed to fill this jar as much as I did I only joined in June too!! So I'm quite pleased with my hard work ☺

We managed to put our tree up last night! Here are some pictures, you might recognise a few ornaments I stitched earlier on

I've also received a little parcel from the States on Friday. This is the prize I won from Shirlee at The Easily Influenced Stitcher during a recent giveaway! Cute kit called Wonderland from the Trilogy I will definitely work on it next year, so it could be done by next Christmas Thank you again Shirlee for this lovely present!

Dernier TUSAL pour cette année! C'est une très bonne idée de garder tous ces fils, comme ca on se rend compte de toutes ces heures passées à broder.. Notre sapin est fait, tout beau avec les quelques déco que j'ai brodé! Enfin, un grand merci à Shirlee pour m'avoir sélectionné comme gagnante de ce petit kit sai…

Two more reindeers...

That's it! I've finally finished the other two reindeer cards from the Cross Stitcher magazine They look adorable and were such fun to stitch To come, more info about the SAL with Mii (gorgeous design from Madame La Fée)

I am so happy today! I arrived home and found a parcel waiting for me
This is a fabulous present from Agneta Check out her blog My Litte Creative World At the origin of the SAL Sweet Treats too! She is so talented! (I love her owls on her blog banner)
She recently did a giveway for these stunning scarves I didn't win but Agneta kindly sent me some anyway... With some Polish choccies I can't wait to taste!!
These are so warm & soft. There is a black one with a discreet silvery trim and a grey, dusty pink one (Apologies, my pic don't do them justice) Thank you again Agneta these are Beautiful
Now, all I have to do is send her a little thank you parcel!!!

Aujourd'hui je suis ravie!! J'ai recu un petit colis de la part d'Agneta Elle m'a gentillement offert 2 superbes écharpes faites par ses 10 petits doigts!  Elles sont magnifiques, toutes douces & bien chaudes! Il y avait aussi du chocolat de Pologne... Délicieux ☺ Milles mercis Agneta!


I can't see all the feeds in my reading list!! It's all gone :( Any suggestions? Happy Stitching! 

Busy Busy Busy...

Apologies for being so quiet this past week, but I have been busy crazy!! Work was busy, had to drive around to attend meeting & events, office Christmas party, School Christmas play... Leaving me very little free time for cross stitching!

I did managed to wrap all the presents & send out all the cards! Now, my house is a bomb site & have to go on a
Wintercleaning mode before the family arrive in 2 weeks!!
This should be fun :)
I guess it serves me right for letting it all pile up...

My hubby got the Christmas decorations down from the attic
so all we need now is ... the Tree!! If everything goes to plan, we should have a free slot on Sunday I hope to post a few pic to share with you

Now, last week's rotation, I was supposed to work on my last gingerbread man. Well, because of all the above I have worked very little and I'm very ashamed to show you my "progress" I hope I'll find time to finish it this week
(in between all this cleaning :P)

It still …


I've made this quick little ornament using the bauble template available on one of the recent post from Nurdan's blog!!
I've finished it off with some green felt, ribbons & bells One more little decoration for my Christmas tree ☺

Happy Stitching!

Je viens de terminer cette petite déco pour mon sapin
Une petite boule en point de croix,
de la feutrine ainsi que
des rubans et des petites cloches...
Et voila!!!

A lucky win!

I've been one of the lucky winner on the more than generous giveaway from Nancy at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe I won this great chart called "Jolly Reindeer", designed by Nancy herself! Isn't she a really talented Lady??? Can't wait to start stitching this one Hope it will be finished on time for Christmas Again, Thank you Nancy :) | Happy Stitching ! |

Quelle chance!
J'ai gagné cette grille grace à Nancy.
Allez faire un petit tout sur son blog,
elle vend aussi tout ce dont vous avez besoin pour vos travaux
de points de croix!!  

Swiss Cottage & Reindeer

Last week I worked on this cute little reindeer It came as a freebie with the Cross Stitcher magazine (Nov issue) As you can see on the pictures, I still have 2 more to do! This was a fun quick little project and I'm hoping to finish
it in time for my postman's next round!  Last week's rotation was on Swiss Cottage A cross stitch my mum is still waiting for... I've managed to progress on one of the flowers
in between a busy Life schedule!!
Off to do more little crosses... Have a lovely weekend
La semaine dernière j'ai fait une petite carte de voeux avec ce petit renne! Un petit cadeau du magazine Cross Stitcher (Nov) Le résultat est plutot chouette mais j'en ai encore 2 à faire :) Aussi travaillé sur Swiss Cottage, j'ai trouvé un petit peu de temps pour faire quelques croix sur une nouvelle fleur...
Happy Stitching!
