Black 'n' white sampler update

I started working on my sampler again last week and this is where I am after 5 hours of stitching.



I know there is lots more to do but hope will get to the finishing point soon unlike my cutwork project.

Have a great week!
Happy stitching!

Patch work

I have a small square table covered with my mom's 40+ years old cross stitch cloth . I like to keep my threads,stitching accessories on it while I stitch. I just love that table for many reasons and that poor table was begging for a make over :) so I made this simple patch work cover..


Yesterday evening I was sitting in my balcony and stitching..suddenly there was a storm and I managed to take a couple of pictures...

                                                                  before the storm


Do you have any favorite place or a furniture which is a part of your stitching journey? Please do share with me...

Have a great weekend!
Happy stitching!

Miniature embroidery

When my little niece asked me to embroider a “little person” I didn't guess that she wanted a miniature.
I'd promised her before I saw the drawing so I had no other option other than doing it.
Next came the other request ….can we do the embroidery by machine ?
I must tell you that she is obsessed with my machine right now because we sew party wear for her barbie together.
Here is the pic of our machine embroidery trial…


He looks little grumpy,isn't he? It's because of my great(!) embroidery skills...
The size is 2'' x 1.4'' . The fabric is tea-dyed cotton.The threads are silk and polyster.
I think I should have used a backing but there is always a next time to correct our mistakes..
Please don't ask me about the right toes and left fingers...when I asked her she said her 'little person' is a ''special child''...What can I say now?

Have a great week!
Happy stitching!

Floral lace

I haven't been here for the past few weeks because of some personal issues.I've lots to catch up now ... hope I'll be able to do that this week end.
I'd like to show you a lace cutwork doily I'd finished recently but started this one last year I guess (!).


Can you guess how much time I'd have spent to do the cutwork part alone?
Looking forward to hear from you...

Happy stitching!
