A small finish

A week ago a stitched this cute design from Tournicoton and yesterday finished it as a pinkeep. It's so tiny, I just love it :) . The pattern called for Vikki Clayton silk thread but as I don't have these I used the alternative DMC convertion that was provided. I really like how the Spider web stitches look (border of the design), it the first time I stitch them and they were not difficult at all!!
I added ribbon roses on the edge of the pinkeep. My plan was to fill the edges with these but then I thought it was a little to much so instead put some pins...I think it looks better this way.

La semana pasada borde este pequeño diseño de Tournicoton y ayer lo terminé como un pinkeep. Es pequeñito y me encanta como ha quedado :). El patrón indicaba que se bordara usando hilos de seda de Vikki Clayton, pero como no tenía éstos use la conversión a DMC que también se indicaba en el patrón. Me encanta el efecto que dan el punto "spider web" (no sé cómo se le llama en español), es la primera vez que realiza este punto y la verdad no es dificíl como antes pensaba. En el borde del pinkeep coloque rosas realizadas en cinta, mi plan original era bordear todo el borde con ésta pero finalmente decidí intercalarlas con alfileres para que no se vea tan recargado.

Design: Petite Pause by Tournicoton
Fabric: 32ct White Lugana
Threads: DMC
Stitched: 06. October. 2007

The postman brought a package with some charts a bought earlier this month. Like I said in a previous post I plan to stitch the Coffee/Tea series from LHN and frame them for my mom's kitchen...so this week I received the latest Frappuccino. Can't wait to start stitching these!!!

Este fin de semana el cartero también me trajo un paquete con cosillas que había pedido hace unas semanas. Como ya mencioné en posts anteriores pienso realizar toda la serie de Café/Té de LHN, y en este envio me llego el segundo que ha salido a la venta: Frappuccino. Me muero de ganas de comenzarlos todos!!!

LHN - Princess and the P, CCN - Home Sweet Home , LHN - Frappuccino
Some Crescent Colours and a piece of R&R Antique Cotton
