+++ Tea Time ( two another charts)

Tea time à pois

When I found this charm, I was shocked because so pretty and I used to have red and white spots pot in my kitchen!
And I emailed her to get the Tea time à pois charts. Fortunately, Emmanuelle was happy to give me a chart and I just started to stitch them. However, there were some one over one stitch and I choose 32ct linen..... that was quite hard to stitch small bits.

nine teapots
And I got another pots charts from Chris who designed my favorite chart candles. She has had some free charts in her site. I really want to stitch all of them. I love her taste so much! Can't wait to see another her design.

Hope you may like them!

Hi everyone!

I have been very busy for work and household thingy in this summer, and
could not make a time to stitch, and

But then,I found Isabelle' s this free chart few month ago via Japanese stitcher's blog. I could not resist to stitch them... because Hannah (my daughter) beautifully coloring and made her story with these bears!

I think my stitching time has come back!

+++ Tea Time

Tea Time

Finally, I have started to stitch the "Tea time" from the magazine "le style anglais" for 2 weeks, because I've been very busy.
Hope I could have a time to stitch, but I really need to know how to manage a lots of coulors of threads, because so easy to confuse the coulors and numbers.
Can somebody tell me how to manage many different colours, please?

Are you using this kinda cards?

+++ Emma's Rose (4) April 2010

Emma's Rose

Finally, I have completed the "Emma's Rose" on the last day of March.
I was not satisfied the face of Emma.. because she was not smiling and has got ugly nose in it.
I did not like my finishing on her face, that reminded me more more practicing and stitching.
I really found stitching was not coloring, so have to practice to draw with threads.
It will not be easy, so my challenge will be continued.....

Next my project:
Because I won the back number of French Stitching magazine "DE FIL EN AIGUILLE" on eBay -
DE FIL EN AIGUILLE has discontinued already, I really was disappointed when I heard that news.
I was so lucky to find this magazine, and that issued January 2009, and said
"LE STYLE ANGLAIS" (English Style)
It has got 30 creations (said "made in England") lol
Really like Cath Kidston spiritual items, very much English- ish!! lol

le style Anglais

Of course, I was inspired by some "English style" tea time charts, so I will combine some tea cups and
teapot design in "French style":
Tea Time

I am still thinking about the fablic and threads...
Will let you know as soon as I found them.
Happy stitching and see you soon!!

Usually, I did put some additional material like beads at finishing touch, however I could not resist to try to put on some beads on it... I am using Mill Hill Seeds Beads on her necklace. That was lovely!

+++ Candles (photo)!

I found she left a comment at my Candle post, that was she wanted to quote my photo on her blog. I was so surprised and pleased and told her "of course!!" then yesterday I have found the post "Des photos, des photos, des photos…".

I shouted to my hubby! "it's my photo in French blog!!!!!!!!!!"
however he was not understanding my excitement, yet, but he replied
"can you read French?? I wonder...."

I told him "Dir, of course, I know your French is better than mine, that's why I asked you to read!"

Many thanks Chris!!!
Lovely posting.

And I have started new SAL, The Gift of Stitching's this month's feature - "Emma's Rose" by Brooke Nolan

Looking forward to stitch the girl and cat!

+++ Kreuzstich (GERMAN) books

I have received two cross stitch charts book in this week. When I was searching some new charts in the net, I found these at Japanese magazine shop site mag-mart. English or other language magazine (or books) are very expensive in Japan, but I think I shall order at Amazons (UK, FR, DE).
Then I ordered a week ago. Of course I can not read GERMAN, but I can read the "CHART" ;-> and was wondering if there is lots GERMAN words in the book, my invest will be wasting my money....
Fortunately, these ones are all charts!!

I was so so so lucky!!!!
