Chasse à l'oeuf - Tralala


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 once I have finished with it.
I'm sure you'll all understand that as this being a winter design, I will work on it later on...

So keep an eye on it, if you'd like to stitch this
There will be a post all about it in the coming months!




Enjoy the weekend and wonderful weather,
I'm off to work on my Gorjuss girl now :)

Happy Stitching!
Mii

  2. Oh my word another beautifully stunning finish from you... what an adorable chart... love all the colors.
    How wonderful that you were chosen to stitch the cute snowman chart :) Just perfect for the Christmas in July swap!! :) And I love the idea that it is going to be passed around for others to stitch.. such a wonderful idea :)
    Smiles and happy stitching to you :)

      I bought a big sheet of mounting mat at my LNS/craft. You can choose different thickness, if you want too. I've also sandwiched 2 thin layers of batting (quilt stuff) to keep it all soft :)
