July has been a busy month, DD1 "30" birthday, her two kids 2 and 7 birthdays, National Day, football and cycling competitions (on TV!).

We had exceptional heat (37° on Friday, 98,6° F) blue sky until yesterday cloudy evening so no red Moon for us.

Time to update the blog and link to Serendipitous Stitching GG event you can read here :

About Gifted Gorgeousness update, the two pieces I'm working on are :

a kid tea set for my grand daughter. Remember where I started from :

Retour sur la réalisation de la dînette Zazobouzi pour Capucine

Plates and cutlery are finished, so I can set the table.

La table est mise avec le petit truc pour bien placer les couverts (ab) CDFG, couteau droite, fourchette gauche.

Not easy to sew "circles" 2mm on the edge of the plates, but I'm afraid it was the easy part of it. I have cut the basket and I'm supposed to sew the corners, assemble the two pieces together back to back and turn them. No idea I'm able to do that and at the end have a basket!

I have to use the same "recipe" to do the four cups and the pitcher.

Le montage de la future corbeille m'effraie un peu car l'assemblage prévu semble risqué, à suivre !

The second work is the fishing game, working on sardines and fishnets.
Bags of onions will be stopped with some crochet points in yellow threads and I'm adding some slices of cork to look like floats.
Some small shellfish will be sewed on the net.

Le recyclage des filets d'oignons avec bordure réalisée en fil jaune au crochet et addition de rondelles de bouchons de liège pour imiter les flotteurs. Les petits coquillages habilement ramassés par Timothé sur la plage viendront trouver leur place dans ces filets de pêche.

Cross stitch update now

Black thread is back
so I worked on my Halloween stitching, 

but black cloud was a warning

working on the left top border I saw there was a mistake on the left side so frogging is on menu.

En brodant la bordure supérieure, j'ai remarqué une erreur sur le côté gauche, donc quelques centimètre à reprendre.
Et une bêtise de plus !

See you soon in August!   A bientôt au mois d'août !

  1. Ahaha, I like the idea of WDIDWTM! I could probably fill in that a fair amount.

    Glad that black is back on the menu for your adorable Halloween stitch but too bad on the frog~ The little place settings are great!!

  2. What a cute set for your granddaughter, she's a lucky girl!
    In spite of the frogs, the Halloween piece looks great!

  3. Thanks for taking part in GG in July, even if the frog did plague you! Love the dinner setting for your grand-daughter, what a gorgeous present.
