25 August 2008


I've been slacking on my blogging. I know I said I'll update once a week especially with this SAL that Carol, Jessie and I got going. I finished stitching 'Tart' last week but didn't have a chance to post until now.
I'm now officially halfway through Sweet Threats. Ice Cream is next. My absolute favourite among all of 'em. I've yet to start it though. By the way, Carol has already finished her Sweet Threats. If you haven't already seen it, check it out here. Isn't her stitching beautiful? Guess I lost our mock SAL competition >.< Fair and Square #8 package from Michele.
I love them, Michele. The colours are so sweet. Thank you so much! Here's a close up of the square:
The design is 'I Love Cross Stitch' (how appropriate ^.^) from the July 2008 issue of The Gift of Stitching magazine by Maryse Dupont of Les grilles de Maryse. The website is in French so click here for the translated version from Google if you're as clueless as me.
Michele also sent me a card and a a pretty Seattle tin containing peppermints.
I received another blog award - Arte y Pico - this time from Noreen. Thank you, Noreen.
The first time I saw this, it was on Nina's blog which according to her, means 'The Best Art'.
As usual, the rules for every award:
  1. Choose 5 blogs deserving to receive the award (conception, creativity, interesting equipment and contributing to the community of bloggers whatever the language).
  2. Every award must contain the link towards the blog of his author so that it can be visited.
  3. Every winner must show the award-logo and put back the name and the link towards the blog that attributed it for her.
  4. The winner must show the blog link the Arte y Pico.
  5. To Post the rules.
I've nominated a number of blogs before for the last two awards that I've received but I'm gonna go ahead and nominate another 5 more as per requested anyway because in my opinion, there are way too many stitchers out there with wonderful blogs who deserves some recognition.
Thus, once again in alphabetical order:
Before you leave me to visit these talented stitchers' blogs, here's my latest update of Just Nan's Queen of the Needle.
Finally got through the dreaded band. Did I mention I don't like confetti stitches? >.<

The tart looks sweet. There are a good few confetti stitches in QotN but well worth the effort Veronica, keep up the good work.
