February Stamp - Lizzie Kate



We're in February already!
This is the beginning of the month, so on my little blog, it can only mean:
Lizzie Kate Stamp time!


Here it is!
Stitched on Zweigart Brittney lilac fabric, 28 ct 
(even though the pictures don't really show the colour so well!)

I've used all DMC charted colours, 2 over 2

Finished off as a very small & cute little cushion
With supplied pink buttons for the flowers, Tilda fabric, white lace & charm

I finally fixed my sewing machine, so the finishing off was a doodle!!
Amazing what can be done when one actually take time to follow the set up instructions :P

ooOoo

On an other note, emails have been sent out yesterday for the Easter Egg-change
You should all know who your partner will be :)
In this year exchange we are 22 participants, from 11 different countries
So pleased with the response & many apologies to those of you I had to turn down
I hope you'll join the fun next year

Off to watch the Rugby - Six Nations is back on! - & stitch, of course!

Happy Stitching!
Mii


Le mois de février vient de faire son apparition
Que le temps passe vite!
C'est l'heure de vous montrer le timbre de février, de la collection Lizzie Kate


Et voila!
Brodé sur toile Zweigart Brittney couleur lilas, 28 ct 
(même s'il semblerait que mes photos ne représentent pas trop la couleur!)

J'ai utilisé les brins DMC préconisés, 2 sur 2

Terminé en petit coussinet tout mignon
avec les petits boutons roses (fournis avec la grille) pour les fleurs,
du tissu polka Tilda, dentelle blanche & charm

J'ai enfin pris le temps de fixer ma machine à coudre ☺
Chouette, plus de petites boucles. La finition a donc été super rapide!!
C'est fou ce que l'on peut faire lorsque l'on prend le temps de lire la notice d'utilisation  :P

ooOoo

Sur un autre sujet, les emails ont été envoyé hier pour le Easter Egg-change
Toutes les participantes doivent maintenant connaitre leur partenaire :)
Pour l'échange de cette année, il y a 22 participantes, de 11 pays différents
Je suis vraiment heureuse d'avoir obtenu cette réponse positive de votre part & je tiens à m'excuser auprès de toutes celles d'entre vous à qui j'ai du refuser
J'espère que vous aurez l'occasion de participer l'année prochaine

C'est l'heure du Rugby - Le tournoi des Six Nations est de retour! - & des petites croix!

A tout à l'heure
Mii

    1. Thank you!
      I had to tidy my feed reader, I am spending more than 2 hours a day looking through all my feeds. I realise your blog is not exactly what I enjoy reading. I love seeing cross stitch design progress and admire stitchers/crafters finishes. I feel you blog is not for me!
      I had no intention of upsetting you. I win & lose followers every week too, I don't care, I'll just carry on doing what I love... Feel free to stop following me if you want to.
