Wow--that new chart is gorgeous. I love the flowers around the border. That will definitely keep you busy. I also love the little ladybird charm on the other project. So adorable.


Oh yes, I can assure you she's happy in her new garden, smiling at me all the time.


The mystery project looks lovely! And your new chart is gorgeous. It looks so delicate and the colors are very pretty.


Isn't the ladybird sweet? I had to stitch it when I saw here there! And that Reflets de Soie chart is beautiful. I finally tracked it down from the designer in France! It took a little work with Google translator, but I think it is now ordered and on its way! Too many projects lined up I fear!


I'm so glad she has a new home and has a new view out her window! It truly makes me happy to think she has brought a little happiness! :)


I have been making steady progress on the newest mystery project. I just need a nice afternoon or evening to work on it and I think I can finish--I hope I have the fabric I have in mind in my stash...and then it will be time to pull out the sewing machine once again!

That is super gorgeous, I'm so impressed!


Thank you--I was really pleased with how it turned out, too. I usually struggle with finishing--especially when it includes working on my sewing machine!

Absolutely gorgeous - you have such a good eye for colour and design, Danielle. It's such a pleasure to see your projects.


Thank you! I can't take credit for the floss colors as they came in the kit, but when I was going through my fabric bin, that fabric just called out to me and I think it matches the design just perfectly. I am working on a new project...(along with the Bee, of course) and I will share it soon! :)


I was so inspired by your cross stitch of the urn with flowers I used it as a pattern for teaching myself how to duplicate a cross stich pattern in iDraw graphic design drawing software. Here's the result: Thank you for your always interesting blog.
