I have blog friends who write about their painting,others who write about their cross stitch,others who write about their sea glass,others who write about their sewing,others who write about their letter writing,others who write about books they have read or films they have watched,others who recount their meetings with nature.
Well I write about everything!How can that be?What type of blogger am I? Well that's just me. I get bored to do the same thing all the time. Therefore I have lots of interests and hobbies. I do a little of this and a little of that.So you will bear with me I guess,if you are still reading me.
So today you will see two framed cross stitch pieces. One is a very old stamped piece of a black and white DMC design of a swan in a pond with grass. I had stitched this when I was in primary school. I never liked it.Because it had no colours. And it was only half cross stitch. Well after 35 years I decided I want it framed and on my wall!What kind of a decision is that?When I saw it framed I loved it!Unbelievable!
SAL (=Stitch Along) named My little Heart which was designed by Sylvia in Germany whose blog I follow.I liked her beautiful colours. Lots of followers stitched together the same design.Each added their own little thing or simply made exactly what Sylvia showed. I added the beads.I can't say that 2010 was a remarkable year to remember as lots of bad things happened but still I liked the design and chose a simple offwhite wide frame to frame it in.You can see some close ups of the design also.
This week I am doing my second lesson with Alisa Burke. I am trying to follow a little part of the lesson every day so today I painted in water colour a simple picture of shapes. I chose a handful of the beautiful multis my dear sea glass friend Joanne had sent me. I really enjoyed painting them!
I had only 5 comments(bhermitte,Francoise ,Devonseaglass, Dream on the wave and one comment on facebook from Lisa Williams).Marabeth of course was kind to offer these and she didn't take part in the drawing.
I asked my son to choose the three pieces and so here are the three names chosen.
I am sorry the other two readers weren't lucky.Maybe next time.Thank you all for taking part.
