New Start and new Stitching method!!


I couldn't resist more the temptation and start Cupid and Psyche...
The first days I stitch with my antique tecnique (country stutch)  I stitched two colors .
But again watching Flosstube I found a video that motivated me to try this technique.... PARKING

I just can say that I'm in loved with the result, I feel is easier, faster and for me that's enough, so for the moment I will focus in this pattern and try the new method with old WIP's like Mystic stitch and all my HAED's .

Start Parking

3 days after (1500 stitches aprox)

If you want to see the video with the parking technique I leave the link  HERE 

Happy Stitching!!

My first Chatelaine!!


Today I share with all of you a very special step on my stitching life.

I started and finished my first Chatelaine! Of course This is a very small project but I wanted to start with something smaller before choose a big mandala.

This is a freebie design that Martina (Chatelaine's designer) gave us for christmas 2014.

I stitched on linen 28ct. 2 over 1
I used Dmc metallics and I change the color of the Delica beads because I wanted to use what I already had in my stash.

I totally in loved with this designs, I have in mind to stitch 2 more freebies, then a mini mandala and then I will start with big mandalas.

Happy stitching!!!
