"The Lace Of Love"...

Wow! I really have not been posting for a rather long time and made my friends worry. I am so sorry. But sometimes it takes so much time to publish a post - there is no connection with Blogger. Just now I tried to save a draft and got "Could not contact Blogger.com. Saving and publishing may fail." And I did lose a couple of posts because of this reason. Does anybody else have the same problems?
I have been designing for St.Valentine's Day and today I can show a new design called "The Lace Of Love" . I made it into a little pillow:












If you are interested in buying any of my designs, send me an e-mail please. My e-mail address is in my Profile. Thank you.

If you remember I have already shown the dragon "Stretch" by T.Wentzler which I stitched for my husband but I have not shown what I made it into yet. My husband wanted a box, you know, men also need trinket boxes to keep their treasures, like coins, stamps, etc. This pattern by Elizabeth's Designs I stitched about a year ago and could not decide what to finish it into. I made some substitutions and finished "Betsy's Butterfly" into a box which was presented to one of our friends.
In the comments on the previous post Nataliya supposed that my favorite finish is a biscornu.
I guess I've already answered the question by my post today. I like biscornus and I love designing them, there is a lot of Geometry in them. But I really love embellishing wood boxes.

I was designing and stitching biscornus to make a biscornu basket to decorate the dining room. Here is my basket:
I found some pictures of the boxes that I have not shown to you yet, I will include some of them into my next post. Today I want to finish the post by my first Daffodil and my favorite Pansies. Aren't they gorgeous?

Happy stitching !

Your finishes are so perfect. I wish I could do those boxes as neatly as you do.

Sorry Blogger is being so difficult. Hopefully it's just temporary.

Прекрасный дизайн к Валентиновому дню получился - тёплый и нежный - и подушечка такая - ммм!!!
И идея с дракончиком на мужнину коробочку тоже великолепна! Долго думал, что вышить на коробочку с благовониями - а ведь вот она - прекрасная идея - Терезин дракончик!!!:-)
Всегда рад зайти в Ваш блог!
Что касается проблем с блогом - у меня такого не случалось, к счастью...

Nataliya said...

Мало того, что я читала этот твой пост в и-нет кафе, так и ещё потеряла твой блог в своём Blog List :о((((. Думаю - Оленька мне комментарии пишет, а сама так давно ничего не вышивала: Пошла в блог к Нине и нашла там тебя. А тут ВАХ! Олечка, чудесные кружева, великолепно смотрится на небеленом льне. Очень-очень нежно. Ты большая умничка! И мужу такой подарок сделала, и коробочку романтичную оформила. Вот сколько всего! Извени потеряшку, я уже так привыкла к отсутствию компа, что по несколько дней могу не пользоваться им :о)
