...last happy dance of 2006…

I would like to show you the last happy dance for 2006: Somebunny to love from The last number of the world of Cross Stitching.

I stitch it on a piece of Aida I have hand dyed with English Breakfast tea…this was the first I hand dyed a fabric and I love the end results. I finished it in a little pillow made following the instruction on Bea website…I’m very satisfied of my work even if It’s quite crooked ;o)

I finished also the winter peace piece making a wall panel…also this is very crooked :o(

Before Christmas I finished the cat from MS (free kit from Cross Stitcher) and I fix it on my
refrigerator ….it’s a great ornaments for Christmas…

An other year is gone…since this is an x-stitch blog it’s time for an x-stitch balance:
12 piece for me o for some friend
10 flip it stamp (I hope to finish the rest ASAP)
6 exchange piece (3 mail art)
2 piece for charity project
3 piece for Round Robin
Grand Total: 33 piece (all small and medium size)…since I started blogging I increase my “x-stitch production“…you and your comments are a great spur :o) Thank you very much!!
Happy New Year to Everyone!!!

...Christmas spirit....

The last week was very chaotic and the next one will be the same so regrettably no time to post ….I hope Christmas holiday will arrive soon….to relax myself at home with my family for some days….

Yesterday by Immaculate Conception tradition I and Alice have made the Christmas tree and the crib….there is a Christmas spirit about…
...the Christmas tree is the same of the last year apart from some new ornaments bought in London and the white light I bought yesterday because the coloured one were broken…

…the crib is new…this year we used cork to make the characters…Alice has this original idea…and we make it together …

On Thursday we had Alice’s birthday party, now she is six…..There were 18 children at the party, we organized a treasure hunt and we have a lot of food ….but what a mess!!! … some tears apart( for the piques of a friend) Alice enjoy herself and this is the most important thing :o)!!

The first test of my state exam is gone well :o)…now I’m waiting for the results of the second one….next Monday I’ll have the third part, keep your’s finger crossed for me ;o)

Now some x-stitch progress….
I finished my October flip-it and I start the November one….I’m quite late but I hope to finish all my flip it by the end of December…

I have also finished a little card for my sister degree that took place last Tuesday…I choose a Margaret Sherry degree cat….I love this chart the cat is cute…I made the backstitch with black instead of brown as recommended in the chart for a mistake I notice that I used the wrong colour too late and I’m too lazy too made all the back stitch an other time with the right colour ;o)

Now I’m working on the MS Inquisitive kitty kit free with the last cross stitcher by now I stitched only the face…I think I’ll use it as a decoration for our front door…
Have a nice week :o)
