Your Christmas gift from me to you....

Yesterday I played with my cross stitch software a bit. My scissor fob so far was a little pumpkin freebie from Drawn Thread. I felt like it was time for a more wintery fob. So, inspired by the pumpkin fob, I made this little snowman.

I know it might look familiar (not my fault, I suffer influences?), but I wanted something I could stitch fast. And the whole thing took me about an hour to stitch, bead and finish as mini cushion. Mission accomplished.

For those interested, I made a printable chart. Colours are what I used, but you can obviously use something else. If you stitch my mini snowman, I'd be interested in seeing what you are doing with it !!!

I also crocheted some snowflakes... these are quick crafts. About 10 minutes each. I love making doilies (all the different stitches, the lacey aspect of it...) but what would I do with the finished piece? Only grandmas put doilies in their homes? So snowflakes are a good compromise...

With all that, Snowflakes doesn't progress fast, but... I'm loosing interest a bit. Maybe I stitched too many LHN wintery scenes.

I bought World of CrossStitching this week end, as I want to stitch Charlie bear and his friend the robin. It will be a nice change of style... The rest of the mag doesn't interest me.

I still haven't packed, and in my head I think of so many things to take it's mind blowing. I guess I will have to bite the bullet and sort things out...




Hier j'ai fait un petit pique aiguilles bonhomme de neige, sur un modele fait moi-meme. Vous pouvez d'ailleurs voir la grille ici. Si vous le brodez, ce serait sympa de m'envoyer une photo !!!

J'ai aussi crochete des flocons de neige. J'aime ce genre de crochet, et c'est un bon compromis, car que ferais-je de napperons crochetes? Je n'ai pas envie que mon interieur ressemble a celui d'une grand mere !!! POurtant, j'aime la technique des napperons, les differents points etc...

Snowflakes n'avance pas vite, forcement si j'ai passe mon dimanche sur les deux premiers trucs, mais aussi je ne me sens pas motivee pour le broder. Je dois avoir fait trop de trucs similaires recemment....

J'ai achete WOCS (magazine anglais) pour le nounours et rouge gorge de la couverture. Un truc mignon avec du back stitch, ca devrait me changer un peu !!!

Je n'ai pas encore fait ma valise, mais il semblerait que mentalement j'aie prevu 40000 choses... et ca risque de pas le faire. Essayons quand meme?
