MMMM SAL final update !!!

Hiiii , Hope you are busy with your Thanksgiving preparations .

Just wanted to share my final status on MMMM SAL hosted by Justine from Justine's Cross Stitch . Two mini finishes again . So I am done with a total of 6 minis. You may see my previous finishes with this SAL here and here .

I loved this embroidery hoop I found on pinterest . No free chart, I just tried it from the printed picture.

I came up with this quote describing my basic sewing skills ;) and stitched it on my own without any alphabet chart. The letters are a bit wonky because the fabric is like that.

I wanted to place an arrow between the dress and the sewing machine, but that will take some time . Oh yes, I stitched a button too though I don't count it as a finish because I need to make few more smaller buttons next to this one .

This is what my table cloth is as of now. Need few more sewing/stitching/crochet motifs .

I will continue this table cloth along with other stitching projects next month and some crochet too. I have been selecting cross stitch projects for next year . I will share the list very soon .

Have a nice day!

MMMM SAL 3rd update.....:)

Hope you had a nice weekend !:)

My friend Justine from Justine's cross stitch is hosting MMMM SAL for the month of November and this is what I have got to show you ........Two Finishes again !!! That makes my count to a total of four this month. Click here to see my previous two finishes .

Below are the links for these two free charts . I changed my colors based on my fabric color . I have done few stitches with silver metallic thread (on the dress neck and ribbon) but it's not visible in the photo .

I am stitching needle-craft themed motifs on this table cloth . So what next? Yarn, bobbin, buttons, scissor, embroidery?
Got few plants from nursery, waiting to be potted .

Have a great week!!

MMMM SAL 2nd update ....

My friend Justine from Justine's cross stitch is hosting MMMM SAL for the month of November and this is where I have reached ......Two Finishes !!!

These were the two I started few days back here with just teeny weeny stitches on it and believe me I made up my mind that no one was going to comment on it . But you all were so sweet to drop by and wrote few words for me .

I hope you can figure it out. No, its not a pink crocodile....:)  

From now on I will be stitching motifs on this green linen (10 count ). Its very soft but the threads are a bit loosely weaved .

You know what, I have a certain way of taking comments (I mean the quantity, not the content, I accept bricks and bats gracefully too) . If I get just 1 comment, its ok...I have been heard and work has been seen . If  the comments reach a count of 5 it makes me happy :) Anything above that is bonus . That you and God have given me more than I asked for :)
Just thought of sharing with you . If I am restless, then Raj thinks......'looks like she hasn't got 5 comments yet ;)' I then tell him, may be, its weekend or I have posted at wrong time . But that soon becomes a passe. You know how anxious we artistic people are .

So, my friends, ahem...... click on the lovely comment button, let the first five pour in and make me happy :) lol :)

Happy Weekend !!

MMMM SAL November 1st week ....

Hello all,

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend :)
Last month I joined MMMM (Mega Mini Month Madness) SAL which is now continued in the November month hosted by Justine at Justine's Cross Stitch

I don't have any completed at the moment but these are the two minis that I have started. Earlier I was stitching on canvas . I guess that slowed down my stitching . So after completing one that I started on the canvas, I will do remaining on the fabric .

The green fabric is a table cloth for my craft room on which I will be stitching random motifs .

Hope to get these done soon :)

Enjoy your day!
