Still working hard on my squirrel. I am focussing on the bottom ans still avoiding the 1/2. To answer Dany's question, I don't like stitching on one over two because it doesn't feel the same and the coverage is close to none ( we can see the fabric through and I don't like that.) I also love the sound of the thread going through the fabric and with one thread, I don't get that ... Anyway, as you can see, I'm almost done with the 2/2 so I won't have any more choice ... 1 over 2 or UFO's bin !!!
Of course, my little assistant insisted on being on the picture (he was really missing his brother and sister to ask to be ON the picture )
During the past week, some stash made its way to my mailbox !!!!
First, two Mango's books. I bought those because I am planning on stitching some designs for Emma's bedroom.
And then, I got my JJ's collectibles order that crossed the ocean in only four days. Someone must have thought I needed my stash right away !!! I'm planning on stitching those two pixies for Emma's bedroom. Yes, she does love fairies I ordered those during their 4 th of july sale but the two charts weren't on the site. They told me they will send me the Paypal bill once they will have the order ready to leave. Oh my! Who would have thought the embellishment pack for Pansy will be sooooooooooo expensive Next time, I'll try to find information on the price before placing the order ... Anyway, I'm very happy with JJ's collectibles. By the way, will you believe, I forgot to order one thread for Sweet Pea? : the Caron collection waterwilies 210 ... grrrrrrrrr I didn't see myself placing an order for only one thread so one stitcher who was making an order for herself told me she could order it for me but I chose the cheapest option: the wildflowers. They are not silk but I can't afford this expensive thread right now. I'm not even sure the design uses a lot of this thread ... Do you think someone will notice the difference?
My babies came back from their vacations yesterday and Steb was thrilled to have his sibblings back !!! ( we were too !!! ) I lent them my old camera and here are some of their pictures: Well not much: they went to a zoo so they took thousand of animals pictures and the camera got stuck on the close up setting so most of them were blurred:
Emma and her cousin Aurane:
Emma reading a magazine about Miley Cyrus. Yes, she's a Hannah Montana fan but I'm not going to stitch her Miley Cyrus in cross stitch
