Little By Little

Hello friends !!

It is good to be here again !! Even though I haven't posted much, I have been faithfully reading blogger and I really have enjoyed seeing all the WIP you guys have going, all the beautiful samplers, all the "up for a challenge" pieces.... You guys inspire me to stitch and stitch more and more and I have added some wonderful charts to my wish list. I thought I would do a short post and share with you my WIP.

I have been mostly working on two projects since the beginning of the year. One of them is I Sigh Not for Beauty SAL. I had to frog most of it and stitch it again !!! That was not fun, but by now I am caught up on it. I was not sure about this sampler when I first started, but the more I stitch it, the more I like it. Below you can see a couple of pictures.

Hola amigas !!

Me alegro de estar aqui otra vez. Aunque no he publicado nada recientemente, si que he estado siguiendo vuestros blogs y admirando las cosas tan bonitas que hacéis. Muchas de vosotras hacéis cosas preciosas de patchwork. También me encantan vuestros proyectos de punto de cruz. Aquí tenéis un par de cosas en las que he estado trabajando desde principios de año.

El primero es un Sampler que se llama I Sigh Not For Beauty SAL. Lo he tenido que deshacer varias veces casi por completo y volverlo a hacer !!! Agggg que cabreo !! Pero bueno, ya estoy donde estaba y cada vez me gusta mas. Abajo podéis ver un par de fotos.

My other WIP is the Spanish Mystery Sampler. I absolutely love this sampler and I am truly enjoying stitching it even though I had to frog too !!!! But the colors are beautiful, don't you think? It is hard to take a picture of the whole sampler because it is so big. Not the greatest quality photo, but at least you get an idea :-)

Mi otro proyecto es el Spanish Mystery Sampler. Me encanta y estoy disfrutando mucho de el, aunque también he tenido que deshacer una parte !!! Los colores son preciosos. Es difícil hacer una foto del sampler completo porque es muy grande. Abajo podéis verlo.

My stitch wallets have been selling nicely too !! Thanks to all of you that have made that possible. I am working on a separate blog dedicated exclusively to them. I have added a couple of new ones to the collection and I have many more that I am making, so check in periodically.

I hope you have a great rest of the week. Thank you for stopping by and for your comments, they mean the world to me.

Mis carteras se van vendiendo muy bien. Gracias a todas las que habéis comprado alguna. Estoy creando un blog exclusivamente para ellas. He añadido un par de carteras nuevas y sigo haciendo muchas mas, así que pasaos por aquí de vez en cuando.

Espero que la semana os trate bien. Muchas gracias por pasaros por aquí y por vuestros comentarios.

I love both your WIPs. The mystery sampler is beautiful and I'm looking forward to following your progress on this sampler.
ISNFB is going to be a stunning sampler too. The more pics I see of this sampler the more I'm tempted to stitch it myself.
Your stitch wallets are lovely.

Both of your WIPs are beautiful. They are such lovely samplers and both just different enough that I'm sure it's interesting to concentrate on them. Great progress and lovely stitches.

The Spanish mystery sampler is gorgeous!! I'm very happy to hear that your stitching bags are selling so well :)

Deb said...

I just both of your samplers Natalia. Your I Sigh Not for Beauty is one that I want to stitch soon. I'm working on the Susanna Lane sampler and they are very similar. I thought that they would look well together on a wall.
