Hi there :)

Finally have some time to update my blog, I've been super busy at work so no time for blogging and very little time for stitching :(

First of all I wanted to thank everyone for your birthday wishes for me and my sister :) Here is a pic of us with our brother Daniel on our birthday (I'm the one on the left and Carol's on the right with curly hair)

Finalmente encuentro el tiempo para actualizar mi blog, he tenido muchisimo trabajo estas ultimas semanas por lo que no he tenido tiempo de "postear" nada y muy poquito tiempo para bordar :(

Primero que nada queria agradecerle por los saludos de cumpleaños para mi y mi hermana :) Aqui les muestro una foto de nosotras con nuestro hermano Daniel el día de nuestro cumple (yo soy la de la izquierda y Carol es la rulos en la derecha)

And here's a pic of Living with Charm, this as you might remember was my birthday gift for Carol. I chose a very simple frame for it and really like how it came out.

Les muestro la foto de "Living with Charm" ya enmarcado, recordaran que este fue mi regalo de cumple para Carol. El marco que elegí es bastante sencillo pero gusta como quedó.

This week I received two exchanges...
From Leena in Finland I received two gorgeous biscornus for the SBEBB Biscornu exchange! Thank you Leena :)

Esta semana recibí 2 intercambios...
De Leena en Finlandia recibí 2 hermosos biscornus!!!

And from Terry a lovely needleroll for the HoE Needleroll exchange! Thanks Terry :) !!

Y de Terry recibí un lindo needleroll!!

On Friday, Linda let me know she received the biscornu I sent her for the SBEBB exchange. Linda has made lots of beautiful biscornus so I was a little bit nervious when I got her name for this exchange...Linda says she likes it so that is great news :) !! The design is a freebie from My Aunt's Attic and it's stitched on Dark Chocolate Belfast Linen with a hand dyed thread by fellow stitcher Aniza

El viernes, Linda me escribio para hacerme saber que habia recibido el biscornu que le envie para el intercambio del for SBEBB. Linda hace hermosos biscornus así que cuando me toco su nombre para este intercambio esta un poquitin nerviosa...Linda me dijo que le gusto mucho asi que esas son muy buenas noticias :) !! El diseño que bordé es un freebie del blog "My Aunt's Attitc, y esta realizado sobre un lino Belfast chocolate oscuro con un hilo teñido a mano por Aniza.

August was not a great month for my stitching goals, I just didn't have a lot of free time and when I did I was too tired to stitch :(
1. Mail out the SBEBB Biscornu exchange ~ Yes!!
2. Stitch and finish a needleroll for the HoE Needleroll exchange ~ I stitched it on August but finished it as a needleroll on Sept 1st. I guess it's a: Nope!
3. Finish and take to the framer L*K's Living with Charm ~ Yes!
4. Stitch at least 15 hours on The Guardian ~ Nope! Didn't pick it up at all!!
5. Start a Halloween design ~ Started 2 projects and finished one of them, Spooky Sheep
6. Stitch and finish a scissor for the Monthly Finishing Challenge blog ~ Nope!

And I also finished a secret project this month :)

Agosto no fue un mes muy bueno para mis "metas puntocruceras", he tenido muy poco tiempo libre y cuando lo tenia estaba muy cansada para bordar :(
1. Enviar el biscornu para el intercambio del foro SBEBB ~ Sip!

2. Bordar y terminar un needleroll para un intercambio del foro HoE ~ Lo termine de bordar en agosto pero el ensamblado lo hice el 1ro de setiembre...asi que es un Nop!
3. Terminar y llevar a enmarcar "Living with Charm" de Lizzie Kate ~ Si!
4. Bordar al menos 15 horas en The Guardian ~ Nop! No lo toque para nada!
5. Empezar un proyecto para Halloween ~ Empece 2 proyectos y termine uno de ellos, Spooky Sheep
6. Bordar y terminar un "scissor fob" para el reto de este mes en el blog Monthly Finishing Challenge ~ Nop!

Hopefully on September I won't be too busy or here are my goals for this month :)
1. Mail out the HoE Needleroll Exchange ~
2. Stitch at least 15 hours on The Guardian
3. Start L*K's Christmas Spirit and stitch the 4 first blocks
4. Work on Halloween Fairy
5. Stitch and finish Hallowscornu

6. Update my blog at least once a week ;)

Esperemos que en setiembre no tenga tanto trabajo y no este cansada todo el tiempo...asi que estas son mis metas para el mes :)

2. Bordar al menos 15 horas en The Guardian
3. Comenzar "Christmas Spirit" de Lizzie Kate y bordar los primero cuatro bloques

Carla! Tu cuadro y el biscornú te han quedado fantásticos... las nuevas dueñas estarán contentísimas. Me alegra que hayas tenido un happy birthday (& Carol también)

Hi! I love your stitching! My friend and I have looked and looked at the website to find the pattern for your biscornu you made. (the brown one) We are either missing it completely, or I've lost my mind! Can you give me a direct link to the pattern? Thanks Sara

becca said...

Love the way you have framed Living with Charm, what a great gift!

And I never knew you were a twin. How neat is that? My friend just had twin girls, they are soooo freakin cute.

The brown biscornu is neat, great color of fabric.

Hazel said...

Happy belated Birthday to you both. You guys look wonderful in your picture - very beautiful, all of you! Your gift for Carol looks perfect too and you stitched it so fast. Love the biscornu you made and the colours look great together. xx

You two look very pretty on you picture with your brother. And you got some really nice exchanges!

What a nice pic of you three! You are all gorgeous :)

Love that LK finish!

shakatak66 said...

I'm new to your blog after seeing your biscornu on the Collection of Smalls and Freebie Gallery blogs - and just had to visit. That is the most exquisite biscornu I've seen online for a while ... it takes my breath away! It's also given me some good ideas for some darker fabrics that I've been wondering what the heck to do with, thanks :D Your other stitching is beautiful too :)

Old Yankee Stitcher said...

The exchanges you received are great but the biscornu you stitched is just lovely. I am on my way to find the pattern. CJ(ok;-)

So many lovely pictures!! I especially liked the picture of you and your family. And I really want to tell you how much I love the colors you chose for Linda's biscornu. I would be nervous stitching for her, too, but you did a marvelous job. Congratulations. :o)
