On Top of the World 2

 
 
I'm back already with a quick update on
Gorjuss, On Top of The World
My little girl has a leg!!! (Well nearly)
Isn't she coming along beautifully?
 
 
During the tour last weekend, we had a bit of spare time
I admit, not a lot of time but enough so that we ended up doing a bit of shopping
I got a new Gorjuss girl, this one is called Ruby!!
The good news is the alarm tag was attached through the packaging & the corner of the instructions
At the check out, the shop assistant couldn't take it off! She apologised many times & offered us a 10% off!!!
I was well pleased with this as the fabric wasn't affected & the wording of the instructions were fine :D
The kind of bad news is that I already have this one.... when I thought I didn't!!
Nevermind, it will be fun to stitch her twice with two different finishes!
I'll have to get creative...
 
Happy Stitching!

~~~ooOoo~~~
 
Allé, une petite mise à jour sur Gorjuss
Ma petite fille a une jambe!!!
J'en ai acheté une autre, Ruby!!
L'emballage est un peu abimé à cause de l'anti vol qui a créé de gros soucis
à l'assistante du magasin car elle a eu beaucoup de mal à le retirer!!
Après mille excuses de sa part, elle nous a offert 10% de réduction!!
Ca c'est pour la bonne nouvelle
La mauvaise nouvelle est que j'ai déjà ce kit!!!
Tant pis, j'aurais l'occasion de la broder deux foix :D

On Top of the World

 
 
Apologies, it has been a little while since my last post
Life has been hectic this past week
 
Last weekend was really tiring with the end of season rugby tour
I sadly had no time for stitching at all!!
The tour was a success and our boys won their U9 festival!!
Use this link to see a pic of the winning team!
 
~~~ooOoo~~~
 
Now back to working long days for a few weeks,
so I'll only be able to stitch a few hours on the evening
I'm still working on my little Gorjuss, On top of the world
Pic to follow when more progress to show!

Happy Stitching!
Mii x
 
 
Milles excuses pour mon absence prolongée
Plein de choses à faire & très peu de temps disponible!
 
Nos garçons ont gagné leur tournoi durant le weekend
Ceci malgré une nuit courte & de nouvelles règles de jeu
pratiquées pendant une session d'entrainement!
Petite photo pour les intéressés, suive le lien ci-dessus
 
Je travaille de nouveau sur Gorjuss
Quelques photos suivront lorsque j'aurais plus avancé
 
A tout à l'heure...

Various starts


I've started several new projects over the weekend
I know, this is a bit naughty, isn't it?

---ooOoo---

Summertime pincushion from Sunken Treasures
I love everything about it, the colours, the fresh summery feel and it looks so much fun to stitch,
A bit like a biscornu withouth the quirky angles!
This is what it will look like when finished



 And this is what I've done so far...
Unfortunately, I will have to un-stitch a few things
I've worked on 2 threads instead of 1 in some places :(
I should know better & read all the instructions first!



---ooOoo---

Vintage Christmas from Country Cottage Needleworks
I wanted to stitch this one for sooo long!
This is what it will look like when finished


And this is what I've done so far...
Very little!!



---ooOoo---

On top of the World from Bothy Threads
I have several Gorjuss♥ kits in my stash and this one is my all time favourite!

I'm going to focus on this from now on until it's finished
This will be a birthday present for my niece
She is not expecting this at all, so I hope she will love it & treasure it!!
(Let's hope she's not reading my blog too, otherwise the surprise effect will be wasted)
So this is what it will look like when finished...



Isn't she adorable?
And this is what I've stitched so far...



Right, that's me done!!

As you can see I've got a lot to do...
And won't be able to stitch much over the weekend
as we have a end of season rugby tour near Bath planned...
So better put in as many little crosses as I can now!

Happy Stitching!
Mii x

---ooOoo---

Trois nouveaux projets en cours!!!
Je dois être un peu folle ☺
Summertime, Vintage Christmas & On top of the world
Le dernier sera un petit cadeau d'anniversaire pour ma nièce!
J'espère qu'elle aimera Gorjuss♥

A tout à l'heure...

Owls of a feather 2



Time to share with you all my latest finish on this dull & rainy Saturday
Here is Owls of a Feather from The Stitching Shed that I've finished as a cushion

I've changed the little ribbon on the felt owl. The original one provided in the kit was not suiting the design's colours to my liking

I've already stitched Birdhouses from this company in the past, see the post here
I just love the colours & the designs are always easy to stitch

I'm off to email them a little pic of my finish and catch up with all your posts!

Happy Stitching!
Mii x


---ooOoo---

Voici ma toute dernière finition!
Owls of a Feather de Stitching Shed

Que pensez-vous de ce coussin? Bien joli n'est-ce pas?
Il n'y a que le bec du hibou qui ne me plait pas trop, je suis pointilleuse!

A tout à l'heure...

Owls of a Feather


I found a lovely solid oak frame for my Love Heart finish
It is now on display (unplanned) in my sitting room!!


I also bought these little drawers to put on my stash shelf
Great for my ribbon & button goodies


Here is a glimpse of what I'm working on now
This is what it should look like when finished!!
The third owl is a felt appliqué, this should be interesting...
This is Owls of a Feather from The Stitching Shed

Happy Stitching!

---ooOoo---

J'ai trouvé un super cadre en chêne massif pour un de mes derniers projet!
C'est maintemant au mur de mon salon!
Un petit apercu de mon dernier choix, Owls of a Feather de chez Stitching Shed

Hello Spring


I have finished this little freebie "Hello Spring" from Lizzie kate

Here is my version

Using the recommended DMC threads
I've left out the little heart buttons
Note: the picture looks faded, it is just an arty farty effect!
