Friendship Grows - Lizzie Kate

Image
Sometimes exchanges don't all go smoothly.
The Easter Egg Change I have organized a few months ago was one of them.
The deadline is long gone and Ariadne has sadly not received her gifts.
It seems that Emma's exchange for Ariadne got lost in the post.

oOo

I felt so bad for Ariadne, this situation was so unfair.
So, I decided to send her a few bits and pieces.
Now that my parcel has safely arrived in Greece, it's time to share with you what I have put together!

oOo

My first item was a little ornament.
The design is called Friendship Grows, from Lizzie Kate I have stitched this on a simple 14ct cream aida fabric,
and used all the advised DMC thread colours.


I have sewn a light blue dragonfly button to finish off the design.
Mounted as an ornament with a felt back.

This was the first time I made an ornament this way and I was ever so pleased with the overall look.
I wish I could have kept this one for me!!

 oOo

Then we have Spring from Ancsanapló
This cute little design is …

Surprise...

Well the sunshine might be gone but my day has been bright and happy!

Justine over at Justine's Cross Stitch has sent me the loveliest RAK :)
Following my Easter Egg Change disappointments, - Yes, someone else has not received their goodies, but that's for an other post - Justine has surprised me with some delightful gifts...
What a fantastic treat!
oOo
A beautiful handmade gift, the most adorable little mouse ever, finished as a perfect little cushion

A sweet Lizzie Kate chart and some WDW threads!

And there is more,
pretty wooden pegs and candles. They both smell heavenly
The parcel had a delicious scent when I first opened it, so exciting!!


Thank you so much Justine.

Chasse à l'oeuf - Tralala

Image
Finally, I have a little finish to share with you!! It is slightly late due to Easter holiday and various unplanned cross stitch projects I had to finish first, but nonetheless here is a belated Easter finish
oOo

This is "Chasse à l'Oeuf" from Tralala I have stitched it on 28ct Zweigart pink Britney evenweave fabric Worked 2 over 2, using all 12 recommended DMC thread colours




I have finished it off as a sweet little pinkeep Using some grey Tilda fabric for the back (see picture below) Some matching trim & a cute little bird pin from Butterfly Couture (Thank you Françoise!)

Although I seem to have pictured his "derrière" more than his cute little face on my pictures :)

I am absolutely delighted with this latest finish!
I think it is adorable.

oOo
This morning the postman delivered the chart "He's a Flake" from LHN
I was lucky to win CJ's giveaway over at Tea and Stitches CJ left a note & requested I pass this chart to a new stitcher on…

A gift for you...

Happy Spring - The Snowflower Diaries

Image
Isn't it frustrating when someone joins an exchange and
doesn't play the game by sending out items to their partner???
Yep... it happened several times during my Easter Egg Change!  In this instance, Bernadett was supposed to send her gifts to Albéna. We are now in May, and there is still no news from Bernadett...
oOo

So I have sadly decided I will no longer organise/take part in anymore exchange...
I am so disappointed.
I will finish & honour the Gorjuss exchange that is currently taking place, but that's it.
No more from Mii.

oOo

Of course, as host, I couldn't leave Albéna without any surprises. So here is what I have put together for her ☺
I was so pleased with this design when I received it from my partner, that I decided to stitch it for Albéna.
This is Happy Spring from The Snowflower Diaries


Stitched on cream Zweigart Aida 14ct fabric, using all preconized DMC thread colours.
Finished off as yet again another little cushion with fabric I found in my stash …

May Stamp - Lizzie Kate

Image
Oooh, would it be May already?? I guess it's Lizzie Kate stamp time then!
oOo

May stamp from Lizzie Kate Stitched on 28 ct pink Zweigart Britney evenweave, 2 over 2. I used all DMC preconized colours



I placed the provided blue mini buttons on the birdhouse as advised
and finished this quick project as a small pincushion.

I used some sweet fabric I had in my stash.
I really think it suits perfectly, it's within the same colour tones & has little birds too!
I also placed some ribbon & a yellow button from my little treasure boxes :)



oOo

On an other note, participation to the Gorjuss exchange is now closed.
There are only 3 of us taking part, but it is promising to be fun!
Stay tuned and we will soon show you our fabulous goodies...
At the moment we are all getting quite excited starting stitching our cute little girls!

For my UK readers, enjoy the long weekend!
Yay, no work on Monday!!!! Don't you love that feeling?

Happy Stitching!
Mii
