Hi my ( lost ? ) fellow stitchers.
First I want to wish you a happy New Year. I haven't blogged in a long long time and I'm hoping to go back to ( maybe) daily blogging in 2012 ... We'll see if I can do it.
I'm sure you're wondering what I stitched in 2011 so here are some pictures ( I got lots of computer problems lately so I lost some pictu
res and took those from my facebook albums.) :
I started the year by stitching a Lanarte ( what else, right? )
Nesting box with pink roses:
After that I completed the kit I had showed you in a previous ( old ) post:
Friendship grow by Sunset. I know there were a lot of green BUT I really enjoyed stitching that one. It's really beautiful.
Then I decided to get crazy but I didn't know how crazy it would be because it took me 6 months to complete this Lanarte kit.
Summer bouquet stitched on the fabric from the kit.
After I completed my insane project ( that was is secret name !!! ) I finished my on the go project ( mainly because I was tired of big projects and I didn't know what to stitch next.)
Vera the mouse by Lanarte stitched on a solo by Silkweaver.
Of course, I finished it quickly so I chose another small kit to feed my stitching craving:
Hideaway by Sue Hillis ( Heritage stitchcraft) stitched on the fabric from the kit.
I finished it fast and I decided to stitch another Lanarte but I was not ready for a big project yet so I chose this small Lanarte kit.
Lanarte 34231 stitched on the fabric from the kit.
And then I fell in love !!!!!!! I saw the picture on the cover of a magazine and I had to get it AND stitch it fast !!! lol You may remember I have a weakness for the Somebuuny to love characters and that one was perfect. I did change the colors for the hat, gloves and boots to make them more chritsmassy and it totally worked !!! It looks better than the original design !!! I was so afraid I'll mess it up but I'm pretty proud of myself! My first attempt at a color conversion did work !
Making friend by DMC for the World of cross stitching.
I didn't manage to finish my current WIP before Christmas ( mainly because I had lots of down moments during Chritsmas ) so it will become my first finish of 2012. I'm already thinking of my next one and don't be surrprised of I go back to a Lanarte ( what else ? !!! )
I didn't stitch a lot during 2011 but my insane did take most of my time ... So what did you stitch?
