I've been a bad bad girl

No, don't worry about it, I didn't throw my fuchsia out the window (with my scale as Jean suggested it !!! If you haven't read Jean comment yesterday, you sure missed something ) NO, I started something new It's not my fault ... See, yesterday, I got my FOTM from Silkweaver and I got this gorgous pink opalescent fabric It was perfect for the kitty floral heart kit by DMC I got in january for Emma. It's a small one ( 8"X8" or 20 X20 cm) so it's perfect for a break !!! I think I need (no I deserve !!!) a break before the breakdown arrives See, I've been stitching the Fuchsia for three months now ...
And here is my first picture ( I told you it's a small one ) :


Now, I need to tell you an exciting news: Lanarte has his new spring collection !!! You can see some new Lanarte kits here and here . I like that one
and I totally fell in love with this Marjolein Bastin kit (I think they already got one like that but I was never able to buy one on Ebay ; they always sold for a lot of money ... ) :
Thanks to all who tried to save my fuchsias !!! Back to stitching now (what? who knows............................... )

What a great idea that you had to start the Hello Kitty project for Emma. I love it and am looking forward to seeing it finished. I am one of the stitchers that NEED to have few projects going at the same time. ;-) So, I can understand you needing a break from the fushia.

Little kitty is so cute. It is nice to take a break from such a large piece as your fuschias.
Love those new designs you found. Majorlien Bastien has some beautiful ones.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear! For a nanosecond I was all happy to see that you came to your senses and took a break from the fuchsias- then I see the picture of Lanarte flowers with leaves and pink and leaves and pink!!! ARGH!! I can't go through this with you!! Don't buy it!! Buy the flowers in the vase!! I don't want anything else getting thrown out the window! ;)

Hello Kitty is just the perfect break! She is so darling and just brings a smile to my face. You can even start the Mary E. piece after that!! Hmmm..... the saga continues.... Tune in tomorrow!

I think Hello Kitty will make the perfect break from Fuchsia-which looks amazing by the way. Kitty is going to be very pretty and perfect for your daughter.

What?! You've had a HK pattern since January and are just now starting it! Well I guess the wait can be justified since you do have it on the perfect piece of pink fabric.

Daffycat said...

Oh, I love the flowers on the HK design! Cute new start!

Pumpkin said...

Okay, that fabric is perfect so you are forgiven ;o)

You are not forgiven for being an enabler though! I love the MB one as well :oS

New project is cute! But remember, your fuchsias are waiting for you... hehehe Really, stitching on one project can be really boring sometimes; it's good to branch out and start a different project. Then if you decide to go back to the old one, you are refreshed!

No girl is bad if they are buying stitching stash ;0)

The SW fabric goes really very well with this HK pattern. It is great to take a break from Fuchsia if it is too much. I do have that kind of urge all the time!

I didn't know of the new Lanarte kits till I saw the links you put here. Now, that is what I call a BAD GIRL!! Really tempting but I have to resist myself.

the hello kitty is sooooo cuuuute (here a hello kitty fan!!), is a perfect break for the fuchsia pink,fuchsia green, etc.

oh the lanarte new kits look beautiful,i personally like the flowers not the vase,but, this one have a lot of green.

Sally said...

Your new start is so cute and pretty!

Susie Q said...

Where did you find the Hello Kitty? My youngest adores Kitty and she is wanting to learn how to stitch.

And thanks for the suggestion on blog background. I'm learning and appreciate everything.

Desi said...

Awww, Hello Kitty is such a tonic. She makes everything better. That's why she's on the seatcovers in my car...

Pooka said...

Ah, j'en étais sure. Dès que j'ai vu le titre du post, j'étais sure que tu avais commencé un nouveau truc.
Vilaine !

Tammy said...

What a sweet little design! Sometimes it helps to stitch on something you can have finished soon--so you don't get demoralized, lol! I agree with tossing that stinking scale out the window! :p

The Hello Kitty kit is so cute, I can see why you went with it instead of Santa and Emma will be thrilled.
