[Editited] And yet, another GIVEAWAY!!!

[Edited] I changed the deadline until 14, June (Sunday), 2009!
So you have more time to join in!!

*******************************************************************

Hi again, here is yet another GIVEAWAY!

I don't know why but, I'm so grateful for everyone around me, especually this year more than before.
Probably, I think I have not been in good health, suffering from the side effect of medicines...
So I'm quite nervous more than before and so I really appreciate for everybody who care about my health a lot...

So, this year is a thanks year, and so here is another small token of my gratitude.


I made another pinkeep with Lilly of the valley design © Les grilles de Maryse, as I want everyone to "BE HAPPY!"

I stitched on 28ct Stoney Creek Dyed Fabrics (Antique Pink) with DMC (#470, #3865).
On the photo, flowers colour doesn't show up much, but in the real life, it's fine!

Here is a photo of backing fabric I chose for this pinkeep.
Lilly of the valley & Roses??? a bit funny, though, it's OK! :D


Here are some close up photos...


I put rose (again?? lol) , what do you say? a little ornament (?) on the top of this pinkeep.
This time I didn't add tied ribbon, leaving this aside quite simple and nice, I think...

*******************************************************************

Hi again, I made the piece that I showed on the last post into a pinkeep!
It's been a while since the last time I made a pinkeep and found myself liking make pinkeeps so much!


By the way, this month of year, it's my 3 years cross stitch anniversary!
I've started cross stitch 3 years ago!
I'm so happy that I could find this wonderful hobby and many of wonderful friends!!

So I made a pinkeep for a Give Away!

I love French custom that somebody received Lilly of the valley will be happy, so I wanted to make something with the design of "Lilly of the valley" for this Give Away to bring a recipient happiness!!


Here are some close up photos of this pinkeep...

Lilly of the valley, again...

I loved Lilly of the valley from before, but since I knew the code for flowers for Lilly of the valley and French custom on the 1st of May, I fell in love this flower more than before!

So I stitched again this flower, but I think I've miss chosen the fabric colour, white flowers didn't shop up at all... Don't you think so?

So, I backstitched with light gray thread for these flowers look like shadow, but yet it didn't show up much...

So the next, I dyed (?), putted on (?) coffee with puffy sponge.

And BAKEed! uhmmm, it doesn't match well with innocent Lilly of the valley?
I shouldn't have baked??

But, if I finished it into something, it would go well, I hope!
I soon post next one!

Write soon!
Thanks for your visit!

"Lilly Of The Valley" - Heart Shaped Ornament

Finally I finished my favourite flower and design "Lilly of the valley".
I stitched two pieces of this design, as I fell in love with this beautiful pattern!
The one I stitched on 40ct linen, I finished into a heart shaped ornament like
danybrod has done.

I liked her heart shape so much, so I copied it, I hope she doesn't mind about this...
And tied Lilly of the valley with dark green organza ribbon, also used for hanging.

I sewed this by hand so the shape looks not so good, though it's still beautiful with this design, I think!

Can you see the canework which is placed back of this ornament with artificial flowers?
This is my mum's work. She has done so many beautiful and wonderful canework for several years ago, though she's got tenosynovitis, so she quit it...



Anyway, here is a back side, I used light green flower motif fabric for the back.
A close up photo is below...

I made another piece into... secret yet!
I will show you on the next post, actually I like an another one very much, so I gave this heart shaped ornament to my mum, as I knew she would love this!

Please look forward to see an another one on the next post!
I don't know which one you might like, though!
Take care + Thank you for your visit!
Happy stitching!

Strawberry Diary 0526 And WIP

Strawberries, it's been only 3 days or less since I saw green berries, it suddenly turned to red like this!!



Today Sweetie picked them (only 3 though!) up, I think it must be a very great experience for him!





My mum put empty pet bottles in the planter and let strawberries up to be bathe in the sun, so suddenly they started turning into red!



First home raised strawberries!!



Sweetie : Yay! here it is, but I don't like fruits and veges, actually...





It's fun to raise veges and fruits at home, I always wanted Sweetie to have such experiences, so I'm so happy that we could!
More strawberries are growing and Tomatoes!
We are very looking forward to see them every day!

How was the taste??? mmm... (lol) it was quite sour, not sweet at all, haha!



Here is my WIP that I can show here at the moment.
I have been working secret project at the same time, so here it is, Blackbird Designs Freebie!
I didn't see the chart (thread colour) and went to the room where I store threads and picked up "Antique Rose" (GAST), as I thought it would be nice for this design.


And after I saw the chart, it was stitched by the same thread, "Antique Rose"! wow!
So I was very happy that I picked up same colour with a designer, as thinking it would be nice!

The white clover ("Shirotsumekusa" in Japanese) you can see above photo and below was from Sweetie for me!
When he took a walk with his grand-ma (my mum), he always brought back wild flowers for me.
Mum told me he always says "Do you think mummy will be happy if I gave this?"


How sweet boy he is! Sometimes too naughty and I'm fed up with it, though he has very sweet heart!!
Thank you so much, my dearest Sweetie Tass! I love you, too!

Sweetie has started his "English Rhythmic" class from today, and he was so happy and seemed he had very much fun!
So at home we did the same thing like "head, shoulders, knees and toes~" and played, it's fun for mums, too!
I hope he will continue this class and will be able to speak English fluently in the future, and want him to meet and talk with my dear friends abroad, especially with Auntie Carol!

Take care and have a lovely day!
Thanks for your visit!

Happy Birthday dear friend! - "Love Notes"

I heard that my dear friend received her present from Japan for a while ago, but after that no sound... Didn't she like this gift? lol
By the way, Happy belated birthday, dear my friend!

I have shown this as sneak peaks and as finished piece, then I finished as this into a sachet.

My friend doesn't do cross stitch nor embroidery.
This is designed as pincushion, though I added lavender in this mini and long pillow to let her sleep well, as I heard that she couldn't sleep well as she was thinking a lot about something when the last time we chatted.

I was very in hurry, so photos are not good, the below one is blury... sorry!
I added tassells on four conors of this sachet.

Just a quick post, I must take bath with Sweetie, and mum is nagging me to stop
playing with PC as always! lol






Strawberries are getting bigger a little by little.
And getting a bit red, now!
These were taken on 20th, so still green, though!











Must go!!!!
So, bye for now,
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stitching!

Sweet Cousins & Silly Auntie...

Today, my brother's kids were here to see their grand-ma and play with my son!
They were running around in the house as screaming, it sounded so funny!
Kids are so sweet!
Here is a photo of my Sweetie's cousins!
They are so sweet, they are 8 and 6, and Sweetie is 4. I think 8 years old boy doesn't care about a little kid much, but this lovely nephew is so sweet and he always care and look for Tass so much!

Boys are running around everywhere, jumping on the bed, etc...! So active!But 6 years old girl doesn't join them much, she was drawing princess, etc... so I played with her to be a model.
I passed her Tass's toy glasses and let her wear my scarf and what do you say? Hair-band?
I let her wear it on her head, and told her to pose for a picture like a model!
How is she? Isn't she cute?! She was poisoned by lacquer, so her cheeks were red and swollen yet, poor niece... Get well soon!
Here is a silly auntie Yuko... (lol)
My niece asked me to do the same, and she took this photo, haha!

Silly me, but I'm always like this, I love to amuse children so much, so when I always take photos of kids, I make noise like pig grunt to make them smile!
Oh... here... Now I'm addicted to this, Yes, Kiri!!!
Why is this such delicious???

I can't stop eating Kiri, when one of near supermarket did sale on Kiri, we bought 20 boxes!!!
Crazy, aren't we?!

I'm dreaming to sleep on the bed which was made by Kiri... lol





Tomato's stems are growing so much, but not much flowers yet...
And here is a flower, it's very small though, is this really be a tomato after the flower finished???
I hope it will go well!!











Thank you so much for your lovely comments always.
I'm so behind, actually no time to read everyone's blog at the moment, so I haven't been visiting your blogs for a long time, either leaving comments, though please forgive me!

Take care and have a lovely weekend!
Thank you for your visit!
