Stash!

 
 
Hello Peeps!
 
 
No stitching update/finish to share with you today
 
Just a bit of stash...
 
***
 
A few days ago was my birthday and hubby treated me to a new little chart
 
Source: Madame Chantilly website
 
This is Paris Mon Amour
 
Being French, I had to have this one!
I absolutely love how she drew the Eiffel Tower...
 
Also fell in love with her latest little summer rabbits.
I think this will also end up through my letterbox

More stash!
This time not because of my birthday!
Found out my lil' sis is expecting a baby :)
 
As for her first, I have to stitch a birth record sampler
And, of course, I found this cutie...

Little One
Designed by Stacey Yacula
Kit available from Dimensions
 
You can finish it off either pink or blue
This time it will be pink!! :)
 
Of course, I couldn't wait to start it
I'm sure it will be finished in plenty of time for baby arrival in November

Don't forget my 3 year

There is still time to enter,
please scroll back a few posts
 
 
Toodles,

    1. LOL!! Thanks Rosey!!
      I also love this baby sampler. The colours are so soft & gentle. The design just sweet, it's really pleasant to work on this... despite a lot of colour changing & thread blending, full stitch, half stitch... I'm forever checking & double checking the instructions :D
