My soon-to-be hubby had an interesting thought yesterday evening (he often has actually). As it was 8 pm and I was bidding him good night (it was 0.30 am in sri lanka), he found that I was a little too happy to send him to sleep, he knew that my stitching time has come. So he proclamed that stitching was my secret lover (a good secret really, as I kept on talking about it). After some discussion, he decided that stitching was the husband, and he would be the lover. Whatever, did I say as long as he let me stitching. Sounded funny to me, so I decide to share it with you.
By the way, I’m going to go crazy with the blue bird : it has some 40 colours or so for the first page only ! It’s insane. Well, it is sure to be wonderful when I’m done with it, but meanwhile…snif, snif.
So to cheer me up, I’m going to show one of my finishes of 2010. One of my auntie asked me to stitch her something. She's Pad-mum little sister and I'm very fond of her. She has a wonderful taste and her house looks like something from a magazine (something that I will never achieve I know...). So I have to give her something special, not that every cross stitch project I do isn't special, but it has to suit her taste. At that time, I was stitching/struggling with Oriental Splendour of Dimensions. So i finished it and offered her. i was so happy to see her pleased.
For the record, OS has accomplished the amazing task of making me up with the French Knot. Why do they call that french? I'm french and it didn't help me a bit. So unfair! First, I thought of leaving them undone, but the lilacs in the bouquet without the knots wouldn't have been the same. So, I fought and ...won! In the meantime, my dear friend at work, heard about it a thousand times. And she, who doesn't know the first thing about cross stitching, knows all about the FK!
Enough talk: time for the photos
