My stitched bits

Friday, December 31, 2010

These are the last 2 items I finished this year.

The African Mask Heart is a freebie which you can find chez mamigoz. You can find it in her category: Coeurs d'Amour (Hearts of Love). There are several freebies there and they all are really nice. Merci Mamigoz!!!

This nice Rose ornament is one I bought a whole while back and I just felt like making it. I'm going to give it as a present to my mother in law. She used to be a seamstress and she will like it I'm sure!

That's it for this year folks!
To be honest, I'm glad this year is almost over as it wasn't such a happy one.
I wish I could wish my mum a Happy New Year, but she isn't around anymore and it saddens me a lot. There's not a day that goes by without me thinking of her. And that will last untill the day I die.

But I still want to wish all of you a Happy New Year and I hope it will have loads of stitches in it as well as good health and lots of love!

WOW... 2 entries in one evening!!! ... LOL

Just to show you my latest finish.
I think I started stitching it somewhere in March this year. I rediscovered it amongst my stash and felt like finishing it!
This is a freebie from
Thank you! I enjoyed making it!
That's it for today folks!
Sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite!

Guess who just walked into the building...

I haven't stitched a single stitch since my mother died earlier this year. It seems I just lost my stitching bug completely.

A week ago my next door neighbour from accross the street asked me if I wanted to help her out a bit.
As it's almost Christmas, her daughter had asked her to make some towels decorated with aïda band for her little girl.

I almost paniced when I heard my neighbour ask me for help... I didn't feel like stitching and even if I started I wasn't sure I was going to be able to finish it in time.
But I was willing to give it a try.
My neighbour helps me out to feed my cats when I'm away, so I couldn't see me say "no" in the first place.

She gave me all the supplies I needed and she had already made a grid with her granddaughter's name.
She had cross stitched the name on the first towel and I said I would take over and stitch the rest, 1 more towel and 2 face cloths.

Her granddaughter had wanted horses on the aïda bands too, but we just couldn't find any that were small enough to fit.
I have quite a number of books and leaflets and I was lucky enough to stumble upon some horseshoes that looked nice,that would fit and that my neighbour liked as well.

So I stitched and stitched and stitched and.... IT'S FINISHED!!! My neighbour stitched the bands on the towels and just came over to show me the results. Must say it looks swell and my neighbour is happy as well. You can see a picture I took, there's just one face cloth missing, she had forgotten to bring it along, but you see what it looks like!

And guess what.... all of this has made my stitching bug come alive again and I'm going to quit writing now because...


Take care and see you all later!!!
