I promise a much more succulent post next time.. today Casa Cenina has shipped me threads and fabric for Les Trois Brodeuses‘ SAL Sorpresa 2.. and I’m so going to show you my first stitches on this! 🙂 hopefully tomorrow..!
in the meantime I finally managed to have some quality stitching time (i.e. no phone calls, mails, annoying people at the door, the usual errands, ..) yesterday evening and finished the other bunch in the Karin’s flowers project.. I must say I’m really pleased with the way these little pieces turned out, backstitching with silks adds such soft and curved details.. two thumbs up for Needlepoint Inc. silks I’ll be using for the Surprise SAL as well! 🙂
I’ve taken a look at this month’s stitching goals, oh my! since I’ve stitched off goals most of the month, I’ll try and do my best with what is left.. this is a little bonus chart Manuela from The Shop Around The Corner gifted to us participants in her Waiting for Christmas SAL (entries are still open! :-D)
I chose (again! :-)) a polka dotted Vaupel & Heilenbeck linen band, 28 ct. white dots on écru, and two beautiful Gloriana shades, the one you see here is Holiday Blue.. this is such a quick and nice piece I’ll probably stitch two, one in blue and one in red..
[sorry I didn’t feel like ironing today, with 31°C..!]
meanwhile at Casa Cenina the 30x30x3 super sales are going on, so far I’ve been lucky enough to find in rotation and reserve the companion to Jeannette Douglas‘ My Stitching treasures accessories (the chartpack this time), some lovely buttons from Just Another Button Co., Lizzie Kate‘s Summer Boxer kit, some tiny jingle bells from The Waxing Moon, a cut of another V&H linen band (one you haven’t seen yet! ;-)), Arachne’s Silken Web The Owl and the Pussycat Accessories Case and Scissor Fob, Beardie Designs Winter Accessories, a few threads, and who knows what else I’ll find until July 1st! 😀
last but not least, the grey tailed says it’s quite comfy among cables and plugs.. gee cats find the weirdest places to take naps.. (and yes, everything was unplugged! :D)
