“I love you” in binary code – finished stitching

I love you in binary code cross stitch project

Hey everyone! Guess who had had enough free evenings (four, to be exact) to finish a tiny project for Valentine’s day? That’s me! Since my little boy decided to go to bed really early, at 6 pm (and to wake at 5 am, but that is another story), I finally have some time to spend on stuff I like 🙂 Luckily that small design doesn’t need much.

The pattern can be found in my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/261506853/ . Be sure to use the coupon listed in shop’s description!

The colors are off, though, I could not find my stash because of moving from one flat to another, and just grabbed the available colors.

The stitching is mounted in a little wooden hoop.

Why there are no new posts ==>

Hello everybody,

In case you lost me and are wondering why am I not writing any posts, well, here is the reason:

ian

His name is Ian, and on November, 16th he turned three months. And though I try really hard, there is no way I can squeeze work into our daily routine (they say it gets better with time – I sure hope so).

Anyway, I’m still reading comments and sometimes even have a minute to answer.

Love and kisses,
Maria

Home is where Mom is – a stitching by Alexandra

Home is where Mom is

Hi everybody,

Hope you were not troubled to much with my absence? Being utterly and completely pregnant, I had spent some months feeeling morning sickness just by looking at my laptop, set aside opening it 🙂 But hopefully I am through that period now – and back to stitching!

Mother’s Day is advancing on us, and Alexandra asked me to make a custom pattern for her Mom, featuring the phrase, Home is whre Mom is. She sent me a photo of her finished stitching, and it looks great, agree?

Home is where Mom is

I totally love the way it turned out.  Alexandra, thank you so much for sharing! 🙂

So if you, by any chance, stitched some of my patterns, don’t hesitate to send a photo – I would really enjoy seeing how they come to life, and sharing the photos with the rest of the world.

 

Another great rendition of the Vault Boy!

Purple temari

Hey everybody, I hope you haven’t lost me. I’m here, though writing a bit less than usual. Here are some photos of what I have been up to in the last days.

Christmas ornament with a bullfinch on a branch of rowan

To be honest, this ornament is almost a month old. I made it for an ornament exchange on http://crossstitchforum.com/, but did not want to spoil the surprise until the recipient sees it. A couple of days ago it finally arrived to its destination, and I am free to post 🙂

New temari balls

Two brand new temari balls, the purple one was made for fun, and the Christmas green for a charity workshop scheduled for this Saturday (the proceeds will go to people who help stray cats).

A finished SG-50 project!

SG50 stitched by Craftty Craken

This post is doubly amazing, as it is a) a photo of my pattern coming to life and b) a reminder about my wonderful Singapore vacation. Or rather all of my Singapore vacations, as it is one of the cities that I love to come back to.

Yay! Temari certificate is finally here

Guest who almost screamed her head offseveral days ago right at the post office? Yes, that was me!

And the reason for this was my wonderful, beautiful, and long-awaited temari certificate straight from JTA (remember, I told you about a temari exam in June?). Many thanks to Ginny Thompson, my inspiration and my mentor on the temari path.

And here is the certificate itself:
