Giveaway - Love Notes - Plum Street Samplers


Note: These ARE NOT my finishes! Just the designer's!!


A few weeks ago, I won the cross stitch pattern of Love Notes from Plum Street Samplers.
You can read all about it here

The giveaway was organised by Sally at Stitchyangel's Treasures
She requested that once we'd stitched our project, to kindly pass on the chart to an other stitcher.
(Very similar to a travelling pattern)

As I have now finished the English Pinkeep, it's time to send the chart to pastures new!!
I have finished all the stitching but still have to work on my finishing
I need to get a few bits n pieces before I share the finished project with you all

So, as usual, please:

1/ Be a follower of Mii Stitch blog
2/ Have an active blog, so we can all see your finished stitchery
3/ Leave a comment on this post only confirming clearly you wish to be entered for this giveaway
4/ Be a stitch-a-holic!!

Good luck to you all,
the winner will be picked and announced in a few days on the 1st July 2013
I hope to be able to show you my finish too at the same time!

Happy Stitching!

Summertime!!


It is officially Summer
Even though it doesn't look or even feel like it for some of us!
 
I just thought I'd share this little cute chart from Gazette 94
A lovely French blog bursting with some lovely creations!
It's available both in English or French
This is the summer one but there are in fact the 4 seasons available
Hop over they are just adorable...
 

I 've noticed a blogger friend, Timi from My adventures with the needle,
has recently stitched this pattern, I loved her finish too!
(Thanks for the link!)
These will definitely go into my to stitch projects :)
Happy Stitching!
Mii x
 
 
Ca y est c'est officiellement l'été!
Même si le temps ne reflète pas cette jolie saison...
 
Allez faire un petit tour chez Gasette 94
Elle a ces petites grilles toutes mignonnes
Toutes les saison sont représentées!
Adorable!
Pour moi, ces grilles ont joins ma pile de projets à broder!!
 
A tout à l'heure...

Joyful Summer - Country Cottage Needleworks


Just finished
Joyful Summer
from Country Cottage Needleworks

Worked on 28 count Jobelan Forget Me Not Blue
(Jobelan is now my all time favourite fabric to stitch on!!)
using all the recommended DMC & Crescent Colours threads

These Crescent threads are so addictive,
I love the dye effect


No cushion finish this time!
This beauty will be framed :)






Hope you're all enjoying the warmth at the moment!!
I leave you with a few blooms from my peony bush
They look gorgeous but the scent is too subtle to my liking...


Still time to participate to my blog 1 year anniversary giveaway
Click here to view

Happy Stitching!

Ca y est, je viens tout juste de terminer Joyful Summer de
Country Cottage Needleworks!
Travaillé sur toile Jobelan 28 bleu Forget Me Not
avec fils DMC & Crescent recommandés
Il ne me reste plus qu'à trouver un cadre pour lui faire honneur!

Profitez bien du beau temps,
Je vous laisse avec quelques photos de mes superbes pivoines!
Très jolies mais malheureusement l'arome est plutot discret...

A tout à l'heure...

Love Notes - Plum Street Samplers

 

An other little treat appeared in my letterbox last week!
Sally from Stitchyangel's Treasures recently organised a very generous giveaway
I was lucky to win the chart "Love Notes" from Plum Street Samplers
I found out the chart is in fact for all these three little cuties!
A scissor fob, a pinkeep and a little cushion
 


One of the request was that you had to give the chart away after you had stitched it
I thought it was a really good idea, a bit like a travelling pattern really!
I will stitch the pinkeep "I love you with all my heart" in the next few weeks
(not sure if I'll manage to finish it as a pinkeep! Anyone know any good tuto??)
and then the chart will be up for grabs for one of you!!
So stay tuned for more info

Again, many thanks to Sally for her generosity

Happy Stitching!

---oooOooo---

J'ai gagné le giveaway organisé par Sally!
Les grilles "Love Notes" de chez Plum Street Samplers
Je vais certainement broder le petit pinkeep dans les mois qui suivent
Ensuite j'offrirais la grille à l'une d'entre vous
(Sally a demandé à ce que la grille soit passée à une autre accro des petites croix lorsque terminée!)
Restez branché pour plus d'info!

A tout à l'heure...

Printemps - Le Tric, Le Croc, La Brod d'Isazabelle

This past week I've worked on
Printemps, designed by Isabelle, from Le Tric, Le Croc, La Brod d'Isazabelle
(Thanks Annie for kindly sharing the link!)


I've stitched it 2 over 3 on light blue evenweave fabric, using all recommended DMC colours
I just realised I used the wrong colour on the canopy roof over the door
I'm sure you couldn't tell!
Finished off as a cute little cushion with spotty cotton fabric, lace and buttons
What do you think?

Happy Stitching!
Mii x


La semaine dernière j'ai brodé une petite grille gratuite
Printemps d'Isabelle à Le tric, le croc, la brod d'Isazabelle
J'ai utilisé les brins DMC recommandés sur toile bleu evenweave
Terminé en petit coussin déco, faut pas changer les bonnes habitudes!
Très bonne journée

A tout à l'heure...

Filiz also kindly signed the issue
There are some lovely charts, I even spotted an owl or two!
There was also a magnet and a felty little ornament included
Thank you Nurdan!
 
Happy Stitching!

Look at all these stitchy goodies I have been offered on my birthday!
 
Hubby has been so generous this year and I truly have been spoilt
I have had a great handbag from here (I just love them!) and some stitching stash

Joyful Summer is all kitted up now and will be my next project!






Valma at Fée le Point has also kindly surprised me with a little parcel
It was a real surprise packed full with goodies!
The box got delivered a bit early & had to wait on my birthday to open it... what a tease!
So here are some more pictures of Valérie's presents:


A lovely little Gorjuss card!


 Some great coasters! I am using these for now, they are so in season: lovely summery feel :)


I also had a cute little candle with butterflies, some fabric, buttons, ribbons & post it!


  
Best of it all is this adorable little pouch made by the Zip Queen herself :D
Valma, I had a very good look at your lovely handy work and
I promise to give a go at making a zippy pouch very soon!
Thank you so much for this surprise parcel.
I love everything! ♥

Happy Stitching!
