Floss Tags

I have also stitched two floss tags to add to my collection of favourite things. Floss tags are fun to stitch and I want to stitch a few more during my vacation which in a couple days. The first floss tag is a free chart offered by Madame la Fee.

Design: Lapinou
Designer: Madame la Fee
Fabric: 32 count white linen
Threads: DMC
Finish: Floss Tag

My second floss tag is also a freebie from Echevette. I used the motif from the centre of the pattern. Apparently this freebie does not appears to be available on the site directly but I think you can email the designer if you want it to add to your collection.

Design: Motif from "En attendant le Printemps"
Designer: Dominique Ayzac
Fabric: 28 count Creame evenweave
Thread: DMC
Finish: Floss Tag

Another Favourite Thing

As promised, I have another "favourite thing to stitch" to show today. It's a pin cushion from one of my favourite French designers, Danybrod. Although I don't speak a word of french, her blog is one of many which has been a source of inspiration to me. I like her designs and her selection of colours for these designs not to mention the way she finishes them. She is a very creative lady to my mind and hopefully I will be able to stitch most of her designs some day. So, here is my attempt at stitching and finishing one of her designs.

Design: Pins Needles Creation
Designer: Danybrod
Fabric: 32 count white linen, eyelet trim, flora cotton
Threads: DMC
Finish: Pincushion

That's it for tonight. There's work in the morning and its way pass my bedtime. Thanks for stopping by.
