Less blogging... more stitching


And voila ! Mid week I realised that I had only until today to stitch the angel in 3 weeks... Where did time go?

So I had to stitch nearly non stop for a while, because once the crosses are done, the backstitch and the beads took some time as well.

You will notice that I didn't do all the french knots, for exemple on the thimble and the dress. I just felt it looked better without... less "crowded"...

The only thing I can tell you is that whoever estimated the 3 weeks for stitching this project is a very fast stitcher, or spent like 4 hours a day stitching it. Whoever manages that amount of time stitching is lucky I guess... ;)

As I finished yesterday at 2am, all I had time after that was gather threads and fabric for the stitching fairy, because I'm still in that mood of stitching, but I might have to find something else more portable for my trip next week...

In the meantime I also sorted out my craftroom, necessary spring cleanning...

Thank you all for your kind words, I know I'm a bit remote at the moment, but.. i read your comments !

Heather, I removed my freebies from the web.. if you want a particular one, just email me !

Moins de blogging, plus de broderie !

Et c'est comme ca que le stitching angel est fini en exactement 3 semaines, comme ecrit sur le magazine. Tout ce que je peux dire est que c'est 3 semaines intensives, genre 5 heures par jour pour y arriver ! Ou alors j'ai trop traine?

Toujours est-il que en milieu de semaine j'ai decide de finir "a temps", et donc je m'y suis mise a fond...

Vous remarquerez que j'ai mis moins de points de noeuds que sur le projet initial, car l'effet "pois" de la robe, c'est pas mon truc !!!

Mon prochain projet sera le stitching fairy, j'ai deja tout ce qu'il faut pour ca !!! Donc je ne suis pas encore degoutee de Joan Elliott, mais il me faudra surement un autre projet plus "portable" pour mon voyage de la semaine prochaine...

J'ai aussi range ma craftroom... c'etait necessaire....

Chiloe, pour le meme... je n'utilise pas de produits de beautes ni de maquillage.. encore pire que toi... ;)
