Yiotas review---and my old tapestery.

hello dear friends, i hope you are fine is still very hot..
hot days are passing slowly but busy busy with normal duties and surely stitching is going with too..
today i was cleaning a old cupboard of mine..and look what i found..
an old tapestry..i started it long ago..oops i dont even remember,,
i think long time i am thinking to finish it too..only some part left..little bit on the dress..her hand and some background..
is'nt she pretty?i love her so much...
beautiful old memories :)

May be you still remember that i received an email few weeks ago about being asked to do the review of  counted cross stitch kits

it made me so happy and i spent a truly joy full time to look at all their beautiful kits..i chose this lovely biscornu is called "love to stitch"
well today i received this package in the afternoon waiting for me in the post box..i know straight away that from where it is because of the big red note(please do not bend)
i opened the package with great excitement and everything is so nicely packed.
i chose this kit and it is such a lovely kit.
have a look at this..
i truly love the cover picture because in that you can exactly see how it is going to look at the end because it is a stitched picture...
this is the back side of the kit and you can see that all the threads are on bobbins already (what a relief)sorted and you can see clearly marked with their numbers...
beautiful soft aida material..
and special cute button for the biscornu.
 aida is already cut in two half dont have to cut for the top part of the biscornu and the other one for the bottom part...
and in the packet is another packet full of filling for the biscornu..
have a look
it is truly amazing..everything is in the kit for you to stitch this beautiful piece.
the chart itself over 4 A4 pages with very clear colorful symbol.
there are separate chart to stitch top and bottem part of the biscornu...
and with that a special another page for instruction"how to make a biscornu"that is really very helpful if you are a that page it is describe so well that you can easily stitch and make the biscornu even if you are trying it first time.
i am so much looking forward to stitching this cute you can see everything is in the just have to stitch it now.
it is a very sweet biscornu kit and the wording is so much like us stitcher..
we all love to stitch :)
 yiotas-xstitch, website is very easy to use with different categories such as angels, fantasy,cottages and lots many looking at the lovely charts and reasonable prices,i am sure i will buy some more charts and kits soon,,i already made my list that i wanted to buy from them.
thank you dear yiotas for the opportunity to review this lovely kit.
i am off to do some stitching before something turn up in between..
until next time..
happy stitching xx

You can post the progress of your work (on that UFO of course) as often as you like but you must post it also on the last day of every month. That one will count towards a prize! Yep, you are reading right, there will be a prize for the most stitched UFO!!!

*A little something from cove * ~~~

hello dear friends,
this are some little finishes for ME..a sweet trash to treasure...
strange..i was thinking that i will stitch but~~!! ~~
once upon a time there was a piece of felt lying in a dark cupboard cornor..a happy cucki was looking for something..then she hear a squeaky sound..looks like somebody was calling her..she looked and looked and then she finally found this piece of felt..oh!what a nice pumpkin u can be..she thought:)
then she took her out and sat with needle and threads..and stitch..and stitch,,and more stitches..
and here i am now..
Happy little pumpkin :) and i got a little fellow friend too...
yup! truly when i saw that piece of felt ..i felt that it is calling me..he he he
after finishing him i thought he is looking a bit lonely so his new buddy they both are happy together..and ME happy too.
something more to share..
here is my hand knitted bag..that you can wear it like a necklace
i knitted it with a very thin crochet cotton thread with very thin needles and lots of beads..they are so much fun to make..i will surely make some more..soon..

Jo received the traveling pattern so happy that it made his first journey nicely..cant wait to see jo's stitching with it.
and all is well; is going fine..everybody is busy..almost.
weather is behaving too..after the rain last night we had it is nice and clear today..sunny and bit windy..a joyful day i believe..
i spent my day today cleaning the house..some mess madam. rain made last night..phew..
hopefully i can do a little cross stitch in the evening..
wishing you a happy day..
until next time..keep well
and of course
