A local meet up and a quick finish!

I belong to a local Facebook group of embroiderers called "Club del Bordado Peru" and on Sunday I went to a mini get together. We reunited at a park in Miraflores (Lima) and we talked, ate and stitched all afternoon. I had a great time and the plans are to get together at least once a month.

I wanted a small, simple project to take to this meeting, so I started a freebie by SV_Stitch called: "You're my Hero" and I actually made great progress *Ü*. I'm using a fabric that my cousin gifted me when she came to visit (she cross stitches, too). I don't think it's Aida but I still like how tiny and even my "x" look. I measured it and it's a 20ct fabric.  Here how it looked after the meet up.

And since I had very little left to do, I continued working on it until it was finished. Here is a picture before the backstitch was added.

I'm not a big fan of backstitch but in this project I enjoyed doing it. My plan is to fully finish it before the end of the year to gift it to one of the young boys in my family °Ü° 

Here it is finished!

A sheep and a llama

This month I tested two amigurumi patterns for designer Yulia Mozhaiska. I've tested several of her patterns and they always turn out super cute

Both were done with cotton yarn and a hook size 2.5mm. The first one I finished was a sweet sheep lovey, I really enjoyed making it and love the texture that the popcorn stitch adds to the doll.
