Hillside Travelers Done!

Hillside Travelers has finally been done. It took me a lot more time than I have planned. I was hoping this could be done within 2 weeks, but in the end it took way longer than expected. It is my bad to abandon it in a box :(

Design: Hillside Travelers © LHN
Fabric: 32ct Permin Linen -  Amber

Now, I will have to concentrate on Crystal Christmas! Till then, enjoy stitching......

Book Haul Part 1

I have been meaning to share this book haul for like a month ago, and here it is!

As many of you may know that I am truly, exceptionally, very much fond of French cross stitch designs. And I was so lucky to find these book in Japanese version, which relatively cheaper compare to the original French version.

(R) Abecedaires Au Point De Croix by Veronique Enginger

I am first introduced to DMC Color Variations Floss by Marie-Anne with these fantastic designs.

These petite decorative items designed by Veronique Enginger are good to be filled in every corner of the house.
