...Computer Wizard SAL part II ..

A quick post to show you my last progress on Computer wizard….I think it’s a good idea to post a photo of my last Wednesday progress on Computer Wizard before tomorrow x-stitch… better late than never (unfortunately last Thursday and Friday I was out from the office and I have no time to post anything)…I finished only the hair, my progress would be more considerable but unfortunately I waste a lot of time colouring the chart…I bought the chart for Patterns online.com so this is a file .pat I print it in a black a white version (B/W symbol) because I haven’t a colour print…Last Wednesday I notice that there are several identical symbol for different DMC colour so I have to check all of them and colour it to avoid mistake in the stitching...it was an awful grind!!

...Computer Wizard SAL....

Yesterday I start a SAL with Zohrah and Jenna…we decide to stitch the Computer Wizard by Alma Lynne every Wednesday.

This is my progress so far…as you can see this is a very little progress but yesterday was a busy day and I have only few minutes for x-stitch…I’ll stitch more next Wednesday

Today's SBQ is:

Do you like to buy "chartpacks" that include charms, buttons, and/or
beads or do you prefer to gather all materials yourself?

I like to buy “chartpacks” even if by today I buy only one …It’s easier and quicker

As planned I finished the last flip it stamp last Monday evening. I stitch all the evening until it’s finished…at the end my eyes are very tired but I held on and I completed it.

I’m overjoyed to show you my Lizzie Kate Flip-it stamp completed

Thank you very much to my SAL partner...make a SAL help me to finish this big project... alone I jack it in before.

Thank you for all your kind comment on my envelope.

...Still alive...

I’m back from a long absconding :o)

In the past weeks I would like to post something but I didn’t find any time to do it… That was a very busy period at work and at home...I work all day at the pc and at evening I didn’t fell like to use the computer anymore….the new home is proceeding, and it’s very time and patience consuming… every day there is a new trouble to solve… now I can see the light of day but there are more things to do :-(….We hope to move in March or latest in April…(I hope to show you some photos soon).

In the last week I tried to add emoticon to my post thanks to this link it works :-D….I would like to use the emoticon of the previous post instead o this one but I’m not able to change the image… any suggestion?

Now x-stitch…

First of all I would like to show you my winter envelope for EMS mail art exchange.

This is the envelope I made for Elisa, I choose a snowmen from an old Italian Magazine and I stitch it on a silkweavers sparkle fabric I bought years ago. I’m quite satisfied by the and as Elisa likes it I’m very happy :o)

And this is the envelope I received from Denise, I love it very much it’s marvellous. And the treads she sent me are lovely. Thank you Denise!!!

Ems Italian Mail art exchange is officially finished for me I have to say I enjoy it very much…I never made cross stitch envelope before and I have to say it’s amusing!!: I received 4 wonderful envelope and some wonderful gift…Thank you very much to all my partner :-D

Last week end I applied myself to decoupage this is my products for Alice DD:

a star photo frame:

and a box, I fall in love with this wonderful drawing by SIA and I bought some paper napkin to make something for Alice at the beginning of January during our trip to Brunico, in that occasion I bought also a lovely Jew’s harp for Alice with the same princess:

Yesterday evening I finished the November flip it…I have already start the dicember one I hope to finish it this evening I’m rather tired of the flip it style…I need a break from those part full of x (the month name is terrible!!!)
