Here is something I finally framed. I thought a plain frame was enough for this stitching so we can appreciate the colors, special stitches and all the details of this piece.  It was SO much fun to stitch. It is a chart I bought one year at a show and would love to get another one but the designer (Something different) doesn't have a site. I am afraid a show might be the only way to find one.  
Stitched on white congress cloth with Caron waterlillies and soie Cristale.

Something  different : Tile 3

Another beautiful Sablaise's chart finished. This one is called St Valentin. I added some spider stitch and bullion stitch as well as some old lace instead of stitched flowers. I am not too sure about the color green of the bow on top.
Now brain storming for how to finish it!

Because it looks like that outside...
I started several projects.

First with few friends from Le fil en scene, we are doing a SAL mitaines (hands warmer). I picked my yarn but I don't have the right size circular needles....nothing done yet.

Then I started knitting socks on a sock loom. It is quite fun and it goes quite fast. I hard a little hard time to decide on the right size (number of pegs) so we will see if it will fit my daughters feet :)

 Finally a couple of stitching projects. First, another lovely SAL by Sablaise this time for Valentine's day. If you would like to join it is not too late visit Sablaise's site. My choice of threads is DMC linen, green silk and regular cotton threads all on a gingham fabric I bought one day at of quilting/cross stitch show.I couldn't resist to add sone special stitched: spider stitch and bullion stitch.

 Finally a last little thing I have started is a little surprise for my daughter. She loves cat, we do have one at home and this chart is for Valentine's day and about cat of course. Free chart is here...

 The same daughter that loves cat swims in her high school team...tonight the girls have a team party before a big meet tomorrow....I was in charge of one desert....she will be bringing a Smore's brownies. Thanks Pinterest for the recipe. It does look great, will see what the girls think.
