Here is the tutorial I promised to make the cutest baby teeth box.
You just need the alphabet of your choice or any design that will fit in the tin box area.
You can Google free cross stitch ABC or look in the patterns you already have.
The boxes make a lovely gift.
The new moms LOVE the baby teeth box.

You can also decorate any size tin box. this one is made with a regular size Altoid box.

I need to apologize for not coming here anymore. 

I discovered Instagram and I have to admit it is so simple, easy and quick to post, like and comment on picture that I became addicted to Instagram. 
La Brodeuse Brode also have a Facebook page very easy to manage.

So I had to make choices and La Brodeuse Brode's blog is not very active anymore. 

Thank you for commenting on my blog's posts. If you still want to stay in touch with La Brodeuse Brode, follow me on Instagram or Facebook.  Easy peasy! See you soon.

2 baby girls are due in the family early next year and I started crafting :)  
2 bibs I made for the french baby girl, baby #1. My first time making was fun. 
I realize they are not as practical than some but I couldn't stop myself to put a bow on the poke o dot one.
More baby craft on the way ....

 Happy Thanksgiving to all

In a couple of days  it is Thanksgiving and it is time to prepare Christmas. I have made few things for a secret Santa exchange in the USA and a Christmas exchange in France. I can't show anything yet concerning the French exchange ­čśŐ I will share some pictures of the Secret Santa in few days. 

Meanwhile for those who celebrate Christmas,
 here are some free chart offered by Sablaise and Chez Elisa

Donuts anyone?
We are ready for Halloween. I just finished my daughter's costume, she will be a box of donuts. I couldn't find enough "donuts" to fill the box so I added a cup of coffee and some napkins at the bottom to get the effect of fullness. 
I made a box with poster boards and the donuts are bath sponges. I cut a hole in the muddle, cut some felt for the icing and added some sprinkles, yarn,  pompoms, beads and other things I had for the topping. I had so much fun putting this together.
Trick or treat!

A new small pillow for my cat lover daughter. This time it's a JBW design. I wish I could have used a non variegated thread as the details of the details don't pop up as much as I wanted. I had fun matching the fabrics to make this project. 
The cat pillow collection is growing 
Have a great week end.
