Hello and happy Friday !!! Here is the design I stitched for my sister finally framed... I think it looks great and I can't wait to show her. Now, I just need to figure out how to pack it for my trip to Spain. I leave on June 3rd and fly home to my parents. On the 5th of June, I take the train to Barcelona with a dear friend from my home town, and in Barcelona, we both join the Silver Needle Mediterranean Cruise. I am so excited about it and I can't wait. I'll make sure to post pictures for everybody to see. More posts to come soon. Have a great weekend and stitch a lot !

Hola y Feliz Viernes !! Este es mi diseño que he bordado para mi hermana ya enmarcado. Creo que ha quedado bien. Ahora tengo que averiguar como ponerlo en la maleta para mi viaje a España. Lo mas probable es que lo tenga que llevar como equipaje de mano. Me marcho a España el 3 de Junio, y el 5 de Junio me voy a Barcelona con una amiga para unirnos al crucero por el Mediterráneo que Silver Needle organiza. Me hace mucha ilusión.... Ya os enseñare las fotos a través de este blog. Espero que paseis un buen fin de semana !!

My First Design/Mi primer diseño !!

Hello everybody after a long time without posting. Designing was something that never occurred to me until recently. I've always wanted to make something special for my sister and, as many beautiful things as we have in our world of cross stitch, not many have words and sayings in Spanish (my sister's language), so I had no choice but to think of something myself. So I started drawing and playing with colors, thinking that there was no way I would be artistic enough to come up with something, but much to my surprise, here is the final result. I actually love it and I think my sister will too. The words say "Sisters of the Heart" and my sister is truly a sister of the heart. I am thinking of stitching the same design with the words in English. Let me know what you think. Now I just need to frame it.... Happy Stitching !!!

Hola a todas
Diseñar punto de cruz es algo que nunca se me había ocurrido hasta hace poco. Siempre he querido bordar algo especial para mi hermana, pero nunca he encontrado nada con palabras o dichos en español. Así que me decidí a probar, y jugando con dibujos y colores, acabe por diseñar esto. Se llama "Hermanas del Corazon" y espero que a mi hermana Eli le encante. Ella es una verdadera hermana del corazón. Me encantan los colores y la tela. Ahora solo tengo que encontrar un marco bonito.... Decidme lo que os parece. Un abrazo
