Blog moving - ISHW - New start!

Hello everyone! Thanks for all your kind comments. You make my day every time I read you.

First of all, Bev of my wee stitching blog is moving, and she's having a great giveaway. She was there  and now she's here. Go and check on her new stunning blog! have fun!

This week end was the International Stitching Hermit Week end hosted by Joyszee, here. This time, hubby was around and it wasn't easy to be an hermit. He has a lot of friends, very kind. Some came visiting us, bringing delicious pastries. Some were visited by us (can I say that???) giving us delicious food. Well, so I spend more time chatting and eating than stitching. Sorry fellow hermits, but I had a good time, you see ; )
As for the new start business, I may already have told you that the HEAD BB organizes a SAL around a storykeeper. I chose to stitch Rapunzel, artwork by Jasmine Beckett-Griffith, because of the rococo mainly. So last week, I received the first page. And most of it is confettis, because of the rococo! I must do something about my taste.
I've started stitching on it. So there is the first update
I still miss one colour. I hope I will receive it soon to fill some of the blanks.
Then, I frogged the part in Blue bird that I stitched with a wrong colour. Between you and me, I haven't frogged every time the symbol appeared but only big areas of it. Frogging is not easy,  in 28 ct it is simply hell!
You have to look at the pink area on the top, that's new! I have no older photo to compare. Being my dreamy usual self, I thought of it only after frogging.

And last but not least, Topaz had some time for her too. I think my other projects are jealous of all the time I spend on her, but she's gorgeous and easy to stitch!
Her left arm can be seen, yeah!

Bonjour tout le monde. je devais ermiter ce week end. Eh ben, c etait pas gagne. Sid est un peu trop populaire, toujours entoure d amis. Pour l usuelle sauvageonne que je suis ce n est pas facile, mais la, c est venu en plein dans mes tentatives de devenir une ermite brodeuse! Pas de bol!
J ai quand meme reussi a point de croiter de ci de la. J ai commence un nouveau projet mais bon j y suis pour rien, j ai ete entraine par le mouvement general sur le forum HEAD. On ne peut rien contre les mouvements de foule, c est connu. J ai fait quelques corrections a Blue bird et surtout j ai ajoute un bras a topaze!
Ici pas de changement, toujours aussi chaud et humide avec l electricite qui vous lache pile au moment le plus chaud de la journee, youpi! sont-ils cruels! heureusement que j ai le balcon et la sublime vue de la mer pour me consoler.
je vous embrasse bien fort.

Happy stitching!
A bientot mes petits loups!


  1. Well it's sounds like a really fun weekend, and i think you did great with your stitching.
    I love the colors in Topaz!

    Hugs Yvon.

  2. Beautiful updates :-) and your start on Rapunzel is fabulous!

  3. I love your new start, and seeing the updates of your other projects. They are all progressing nicely (hope there is not too much frogging required)

  4. You've made a great start on Rapunzel :) And I love how the colours blend in Topaz's hair!

  5. Awww frogging is not good for the soul. Sometimes if I make a mistake, and I'm stitching 1x1, instead of frogging it I'll stitch over it if it's a confetti and there's only one stitch. Maybe it's cheating but I keep the fabric tight enough that you can't tell.

    I love Topaz and all your other works. The colors are just so vibrant in Topaz! Can't wait to see more!

  6. you have done a lot of different things this weekend!
    I love specially the blue bird...

  7. Looks like you got quite a bit done with all the visitors you had! Great progress!!

  8. Huh, looks like you still have made a lot of stitching.
    Your start on Rapunzel is great, I hope your color arrives, soon. I'm waiting for a color I will need soon, too, and I hope that it won't be long now!

    The pink on blue bird is amazing, I love pink!!!

    And Topaz... She's so beautiful, the way her hair looks, now her arm... :)

  9. Love all your WIPs. You have picked some very beautiful projects! Look forward to seeing how they progress.

  10. Ooooh.... food!!!!! I wouldn't have passed up good food to stitch either. Hehehe.

    Rapunzel is looking nice, and I'm loving Topaz!!!!! Can't wait for you to get to her face. :D pssst, I didn't frog stray wrong colors in Metamorphosis either. ;)
