...EMS Italian Mail art Exchange&MSRR....

Yesterday I received this wonderful autumnal envelope from Bea for the EMS Italian Mail art exchange…this is the first time a received the stitched envelope without a paper envelope as a protection and it’s marvellous…my mum an Alice DD pick up the envelope and they were so amazed that they immediately phone me thrilled to tell me I have received a beautiful autumnal x-stitch envelope…I like the Lizzie&Kate design she had chosen and the gift she send me a DMC variations skeins and a lovely bookmark…thank you very much Bea :o)

Last Monday I finished also the Hen for Janaina fabric of MS RR..this is the first time I stitched a chart twice (one in January for Alice and one now for Janaina) but I enjoy it….the only problem with MS chart is the back stitch... I hate backstitch but for MS chart this is a necessary evil :o)…it was really worth it!!!

My renovation is slow at the moment…my new house seems like a Gruyère :o)
Thank you very much for your comment on my Garfield…
Have a nice week end :o)

...Back from London...

We are back…London is a marvellous city…I like it very much!!! We were very lucky we have all sunny days….very cold (a you can see from our outfit)but sunny :o)….We walked walked walked to see as much place as we can (I like the view, the parks and the market (Portobello is great!!!) …at the end of the journey we fell done in but happy :o)

I gave me a little x-stitch present from London: the magazine Cross Stitch Favourite…I try to buy also X-Stitch Crazy and Quick And Easy Cross Stitch but unfortunately I didn’t find it ….sob :o(

Before we set out on our journey to London I finished Winter Peace for the SAL of Sister and Best Friend group….this was the first time I use charms to finish my work…and I’m quite satisfied by the end results even if the linen is quite dark and the colours don’t stand out….never mind!!

Now I’m working hard on Janaina Fabric for MS RR to finish my Hen(Fun Farm Animals) before the 15th of November.

The renovations of my home proceed…I have same photos to share:
