...August flip it& SBQ...

Last august day…august flip it ready :o)

Two row are done :o)…so 2006 is almost finished….time flies...

Today's SBQ was suggested by Carolyn and is:

How do you share your finished pieces with others? Do you frame them, scan and/or photograph them, or do you have another method that you would like to share?

I have a lot of work framed…sometimes I finish my work in other ways as little bag, pillow…or other things as showed in my gallery. To share my works with people all around the world I publish their photos on my blog and in my gallery…

...EMS Italian Mail art Exchange....

My envelope has reached its destination…so I can show you a photo of it:
I choose an Alma Lynne floral design from “Garden of Variety” book….as my partner loves floral and fruit design.

In the envelope i enclosed two DMC variegated floss.

To make the envelope I have followed the instruction of an old Cross Stitcher….I like this unusual envelope :o)

I’m quite satisfied by the end results!!! Luckily my partner loves it, too :o)

The envelope with my MS RR cloth and the RR necessities is gone to USA…I hope it will arrive safe and sound….

I’ve sent also my Italian mail art exchange piece…to its new home…

After several question missed I re-start to answer regularly…at least I will try ;o)

Today's SBQs was suggested by Anna M. and is:

What do you keep your WIPs and other stitching supplies in when traveling?

Usually I put the chart, floss, needle and scissor into this little bag I bought last june.

Have a nice week end…

...home sweet home...

Thursday we came back from 18 days at the seaside we had a very wet and cold weather I’m happy to be in our warm home instead of our damp caravan ;o) …the weather was awful for the beach but perfect for stitching!!!

Then I start and finish the MS fun farm animal horse, it’s a very quick stitch ( I think the pig is the longest!!)….It’s gorgeous now only the cow is left…I’ll stitch it very soon…

Now I’m working on August flip it…I have to stitch only the background of the writing…

In those day I’m working for finishing my mail art exchange piece for EMS Italian Mail art exchange….Luckily I found a very nice store in Pinarella where I bought this lovely cloths….I will use the yellow one to finish my envelope….I will share a photo soon…
