Back to Stitching ...! (part II)

My stitching friend, Azie and I decided to go for another one-evening Lizzie Kate SAL after finishing the L*K Snug as a Bug.

L*K Snug as a Bug

Snug as a Bug ~ a total colour conversion stitched on rustico aida. I added the border since I'm planning to finish it off as a cushion cover. See the matching floral print cotton *wink*. Embellished with a ladybug button. I'm running out of stock now! Need to buy extra ladybug buttons next time since I love them as embellishments very much.

As for the other one-evening SAL, I particularly chose L*K Reach for the Stars (a.k.a Believe Imagine Dream) coz I'm a dreamer *wink*. Yes, I do have a dream and hoping that one day it will become a reality (I'm working on it).

L*K Reach for the Stars

Stitching on black aida in the evening was a challenge. Furthermore, I used the glo-in-the dark blending filament when stitching the stars, 'believe' & 'dream'. I was supposed to stitch 'imagine' with the blending as well but somehow I forgot about it. Being lazy to do the frogging , I just let it be.

Azie stitched both L*K Snug as a Bug and Reach for the Stars according to her preference. You may visit her webshots album to see her works. She took the pics before embellish the stitched pieces with buttons as she was using a scanner to capture the pics. Azie will upload more pics of the stitched pieces with embelishments later.

I stumbled across your blog while looking at Land Of 1000 Dances information. I found the Land Of 1000 Dances information interesting. I still wished we created a Land Of 1000 Dances blog instead of a regular site. I think it is something for us to considerfor the family. If you ever wanted Land Of 1000 Dances info about dancing. Check us out at : )

See you and thanks

Sheesh, don't you hate these blog spammers...I have seen them popping up all over the place lately. Anyway, I love your little sayings, especially Snug As A Bug. When I was a little girl, Dad would tuck me into my bed and say "there you are dear, as snug as a bug in a rug". I would love to stitch this one!

You're right, these blog spammers are flooding the blogs of everyone that I knew.

'Snug as a bug in a rug' - this is a very nice saying. Cute! :)
