Mystery Animal SAL part 4/10

It's been a while since I've updated, oops!

It's not because I haven't been stitching though :-) I've been working on the mystery SAL, this time with a print-out. It seemed my printer was hungry for more ink, silly printer not telling me such a small detail! So after feeding the printer, I got a very nice print out of it. That did help a lot to get the stitching done faster. And this is the result...

I've also been practising my culinary skills, by making a vegetable quiche and a clafoutis for dessert for a dinner party, but well that hasn't got anything to do with the subject :-)

Anyway, can I also interest anyone in an update on the Great Empire of Egypt?

And a stupid question, what do I have to do to get a notification when someone leaves a comment on my blog?

Mystery Animal SAL 3/10

I finished the third part of the mystery SAL, and the mystery is starting to get revealed :-) I even did the backstitches this time for all the parts! I did have trouble with this part, because my printer seems to have taken a dislike to me, and decided to make it al quite unreadable, so I had to follow the pattern on the computer screen - which made me lose my place in the pattern often times. So I was very glad to be done with it! On to part 4...

Exchanges sent

This post is about the exchenges I sent out.
I didn't really have many small Disney patterns, so I had no other choice (yeah right!) but to go stash-shopping. My LNS unfortunately seems to be diminishing their cross-stitch section, but I did find one pattern-book from Winnie the Pooh, the ONLY Disney one they had. I chose a silhoutte-pattern with Tigger, Winnie and Piglet.
Made on 18 count Aïda.

The Magnet - does it look familiar to you - yes, I chose the same pattern as Nel, who sent me a Magnet. Luckily I didn't have to send back to her :-) The pattern comes from Borduurblad 33. It was a fun quick stitch. Also made on 18 count Aïda.

Next update: Tommorow - Animal SAL part 3

Exchanges recieved

I participated in two exchanges on the Dutch forum of the EMS cross-stitch board. One was a Disney Bookmark and one was an magnet with Autumn as the subject. I recieved two gorgeous exchanges. The bookmark was from Margot. She stitched Kwik, Kwek and Kwak.

The Magnet came from Nel, she stitched up a very cute magnet. It's in a protective plastic coaster, so it won't get dirty.

But I also had a few surprises in the mail. Evalina's blog give-away arrived, she gave me a pattern called 'Happiness' and a book of patterns 'Critter Careers'. And another surprise, I recieved my very first RAK. Lisa Nicholson send me three Winny The Pooh patterns.

Thanks everyone!
