Finally Finished !!!

I'm sooo happy I finally finished my Neighborhood Row Cross-Stitch Stitchery, it's my first finish for this year !!!!! Woooo Hooooo

I began cross stitching this last year and wanted to finish it sooo badly that it was one of my goals for January, together with my 'Madonna Sixtina' embroidery, which has been left apart just a bit these last couple of days !!! Poor angels, they won't have their wings soon this way, but I'm sooo happy that I have one cross stitch project less to finish, and let me tell you, my list is looooong !!!!

So, here it is, in all its glory !!!! Now I just have to decide what to make with it !!!! LOL

Have a great day everyone !!!

DQS8 quiltie and embroidery progress...

I know I promised to share this with you yesterday, but I was all day in bed because of a food poisoning,
 I guess...that was terrible !!

So here I am, back with some pics to show you !!

First is my progress on the DQS8. All cut is done, actually I finished cutting the dresdens on Sunday, but couldn't touch my sewing machine since then !!!

I hope you all like it as I guess my partner does not !!! I'm thinking of starting over right now with a different idea and sketch. Well, we'll see...But at least I'll make mine, I do like it and can't wait to get it done !!!
So sorry for the white background, I didn't want to iron...yeah, I know...I'm lazy, but to my defense...I hate ironing !!!! That's the worst part of quilting !!!
By the way, which is the part you hate the most about quilting??? I'd love to know !! Just for fun !!!

Second is my progress on my 'Madonna Sixtina' embroidery. As you can see, not much going on here. I hope I'll have much more to show you in two weeks !!!

Have a great day everyone !!!

Beginning of DQS8 quiltie...

Thise year I will slow down on swaps because I just want to focus in making some quilts for me and my family, but I couldn't resist to take part in the Doll Quilt Swap 8 !! It's the second time I participate in this swap and I love it ! This time I got a gorgeous partner that has lots of favorites and she just adds more day after day !!! She has clear ideas of what she likes so it was easy for me to think about what I'm gonna make for her. I sketched something already but decided to change a little that concept.

This is my original sketch...

And these are some of the fabrics I'm using for the quiltie, do you see a pattern here?

Well, let me tell you, I absolutely LOVE what I'm making for my partner, I love it soo much that I'm making one for me too !!! Yes !!! I'm making two quilts at the same time with slight differences !!!

Will show you the pieces as soon as I cut them all, hope by tomorrow, and I'll also show you how my 'Madonna Sixtina' embroidery is going. I decided to show you the embroidery every two weeks, if not you'll get bored to see it A LOT around here, it may take me A WHILE  to get it done !!! LOL

Have a nice day everyone !!

Angel to the rescue...

Last year I took part in lots of swaps (I promise it won't be like that this year, will definitely slow down on that!) and two of my partners were MIA !!! I never received my Good Ol' Summer Time Mini Quilt and my Friendship bag and that was really SAD and DISSAPOINTING !!!

But a kind lady I met through this marvellous world of blogs came to my rescue and offered herself to be an Angel for the Summer Mini Quilt and the Friendship Bag swaps. That kind and generous Angel is Béa from Une Aiguille Dans Une Botte de Foin, and her gorgeous gifties arrived to lift my faith in humanity!

Look at what I got!!! A wonderful Summer quilt that will look gorgeous as a tablerunner also !!! It has SUMMER written all over it !!! Yummy cherries and my favorite colors !!!!
She really knows my tastes !! LOL

And this cute matching Friendship Bag, just stunning !! Will use it for my embroidery threads !!!

And she included a sweet card also! I love all of the gifties !!

THANK YOU SOOO MUCH, BÉA !!!! I'll never forget this, my friend !!!

Have a great day everyone !

Monday Focus Project Week # 1...

Hi you all, I hope you had a great New Year's Day and  that you begin 2010 with renewed goals and wishes !!!

I have to apologize for not replying to your comments but I haven't been at home for some days now and I'm slowly replying to them, thank you soooo much for your kind comments and wishes for 2010 !!! Hope you have the best year full of accomplishments and WISPs finished !!!

So I decided to join May Britt's idea and focus each Monday on a project for the coming week to work on, and blog about it. But I made a tiny change to the whole concept. I'm focusing in only ONE project to hand stitch until I finish. And I'll blog about my progress each Monday, so that'll make me work on it and finish it quickly !!! it is... I introduce you to my WISP # 1 for this year !!!

'La Madonna Sixtina', a counted cross stitch paint that I started 3 years ago and now I'm determined to finish as I want to frame it for a special spot in my house that's waiting for it !!
Wish me luck for this week !!

Have a great day everyone !!!
