Biscornu - Atalie "Avril 2007"

Hello, how are you doing?
Thank you so much for your lovely comments for my last post.
And some friends who sent me e-mails in last few months, please forgive me not to be able to reply you yet, will find time to reply you soon.

Here are some photos to share my completed pieces Biscornu and scissor fob © Atalie.
I love Atalie's Biscornus so much, and had been wanting to make them for a long time!
This design was stitched by Atalie over dyed threads, but I didn't have them nor similar over dyed threads, so used DMC instead.

長年の憧れであった Atalie の Biscornu を作りました。
ずっと以前に違うデザインは作ったことがあったのですが、なかなか高度な見た目に手が出ずにいました。





Recently I'm just getting used to work society and getting back my mojo a little by little!
And then, find even a short break, I was making something small to be satisfied to see the complete piece!

仕事にもだいぶ慣れてきたので、ほんの短い空き時間でも有効に使おうと最近ステッチを始めました。
ステッチを再開して気づいたこと。それは、ステッチ出来ていない事がどれだけストレスになってたか・・・ということ。
最初はこの緑の葉っぱを刺すだけでも疲れて続けられなかったのですが、気分が乗ってくると、やはり楽しくて。
久々に完成形を見たくて、満足感を得たくて、時折くじけながらも頑張って作り続け完成!


And also I wanted to make a gift to a lady who I like so much, so thought this would be the perfect set for her when she sews something!

そして何より、このデザインを選んだ理由は、大好きな方へプレゼントしたかったからなのです。
その力も手伝って頑張ることが出来たのでは?と思います。
お裁縫をされる時のお共に使って頂ければ嬉しいなぁ。


It's been so long since the last time I stitched and made spider web roses, whew I was almost going to forget everything, how to make them and also how to put pieces together to make Biscornu!

ビスコーニュを作るのも、スパイダーウェブローズも久し振り!
作り方をすっかり忘れている自分に愕然(T ^ T)


And here is a little scissor fob that I made, got inspiration from the original Biscornu design.
I also made tassel, before then I couldn't make it nice, but this time it worked well very much!

そして、小さなシザーフォブも作ってみました。
こちらはデザインは無かったので、ビスコーニュのデザインから雰囲気を掴んでオリジナルに。
今回はタッセルも自分で作ってみましたが、なかなか上手く出来て満足です!

I do hope she loves them, and hope she uses them for her handmade time!





Ham-chan, our dearest hamster has died in Feb.

ところで、話は変わりますが・・・
私たちの大切に飼っていたパールホワイトハムスターのハムちゃんが冬に亡くなりました。


He was the most loveliest hamster in this world, we Tass and I still believe it.
Tass my son wanted to have another one, but whenever we see hamsters at pet shop, we never can find more pretty one than him. So we decided not to have anymore, because he is the best for us forever.
Ham-chan, we will never forget about you.

ハムちゃんは、本当に本当に可愛かった。小さくて、ジッとしてなくて、ハグは出来なかったけれど、色んな表情を見せてくれて、本当に愛らしかった。
私たちにとって本当に大切で、ハムちゃんの存在がどれほど私たちを癒してくれたか・・・
今でも、「ハムちゃんが世界で一番可愛いハムスター」だって息子も私も思っています。
こんなに可愛い子には二度と会えないので、最初はまたハムスターを欲しがっていた息子も、今では「もういい。ハムちゃんより可愛い子はいないから。」と言っています。
半年経った今でも、ハムちゃんの話をすると涙ぐむ息子。
命の大切さを十分理解してくれた事と思います。
いつまでも忘れないよ、ハムちゃん。ありがとう。

Aww I am so sorry to hear about Ham-chan. It is always so hard. Abi's died several months ago and it's taken her until just under 2 weeks ago to feel ready to have another.
