It's time for Gifted Gorgeousness update

In the last GG post I told you about a shop named "THEOPHILE" in Azay le Rideau where I bought "Mademoiselle Journuy" a lovely cat doll,

but I gave the address in my letter to Santa and received under the Christmas tree...

"Quand Noël s'en mêle"   de chez  "Un chat dans l'aiguille"

we spent a certain time to separate the 25 colors and "reconstitute" a thread organizer
it wasn't an easy task, believe me

thanks to DMC colour chart
 un peu compliqué de retrouver les couleurs
et de reconstituer 25 écheveaux
le nuancier DMC fut un allié efficace 

Un autre projet en préparation une petite couverture en polaire pour bébé / a baby fleece blanket
(inspirée des modèles "ribam-belles")

A new project in progress, a gift for baby girl Soline

Première étape, dessinez le patron

First step, drawing and making a sewing pattern

Cut the material for tree trunk
and branch

Coupez et placez le tronc/branches


Back to cross stitching...
For Jo's blog hop on Valentine Day, I choosed some hearts on a lovely Christmas market

It's a   "Brin par brin" pattern of six small market stall.
I bought it in a DIY fair at the end of January

Lors du salon Création et Savoir Faire de janvier, j'ai acquis cet ensemble de grilles de chez "Brin par brin", il représente six petits stands de marché de Noël.

Can't wait to stitch them
I choose this little rabbit selling
Christmas decorations.

Je vous laisse le cœur plein de douceurs...

I leave you with some candies, small meringues cooked by DD3 yesterday, sweet heart.
