Busy as a bee - Lizzie Kate

Good morning Peeps! Here is my latest finish
Busy as a bee from Lizzie Kate

Stitched on 16 count Aida fabric from Sew It All Rustico colour
Using recommended DMC threads, 2 over 1

I have also opted to use Kreinik thread as I wanted the bugs wings to be sparkly
(which obviously doesn't show well on my pictures!)


Started on the 11/06/2016
Finished on the 13/06/2016


Finished off as a small pincushion using bee printed fabric from my stash
Toodles, Mii



Poussière De Fée - Nimuë

Hello Peeps! I have been busy working on something new these past few days Let's have a look... Poussière De Fée (Fairy Dust) From Nimuë My model was stitched on 16 count Aida fabric from my favourite supplier Sew It All Cabbage colour Worked 1 over 1, using a mix of DMC & Kreinik threads The instructions requested the use of mohair thread, which after a few crosses, I found awful to use and not pretty to look at, so I instead opted to use Kreinik metallic Afterall, fairies and sparkles are a perfect match! 

Finished of pinkeep style with a first and poor attempt at twisted ribbon 


Ooops! I have just noticed all my pictures are showing a tiny piece of turquoise thread... (from the piece of fabric I have used on the reverse) Started on the 26th May 2016 and finished on the 3rd June 2016 Toodles, Mii

Hello Peeps!

Today is a post for Lego fans
 as I have finally been able to stitch some of these
famous little plastic characters!


After the fun of stitching them, I put together a Lego themed parcel for Justine's children.
I thought it would be a great surprise for them.

Marvel Spiderman Lego Minifigure
Stitched on 16 count Aida fabric from sew It All, antique white 2 over 1 using DMC threads
Simply framed with colourful background paper



  DC Superman Lego Minifigure
Stitched on 16 count Aida fabric from Sew It All, antique white 2 over 1 using DMC threads




Again, simply framed with coloured background paper



The surprise Lego parcel has been a success.
All goodies have been happily opened and played with :)

Plant A Tree - Lizzie Kate

Good morning Peeps! A small finish to share with you all  Plant A Tree From Lizzie Kate Green Flip It Series This is how I left it back in January,
It was my CJC 2016 start #5 Stitched on 16 count Aida fabric from Sew It All Clay colour 2 over 1, using DMC threads And this is how it looks now it is finished Started: 5 Jan 2016 Finish: 15 May 2016 Total stitch time: 5h25mn Now wish I had chosen a darker colour of fabric for this design as we can hardly see the wings of the little insects... Oh well, I've learnt from my mistake! I will "finish off" these cute designs once the whole series will be stitched. This is now my CJC 2016 finish #6! Toodles, Mii
