"Wisteria" designs and more...

The last two weeks were rather hectic here , besides our Internet did not work properly - now I am behind in reading the blogs. I want to thank those who left wonderful comments on my last post, I will visit your blogs in the next couple of days.
On the stitching front - there was not much time for stitching but I have something to show to you today.
First, I worked on "Wisteria" designs more and made two "Wisteria" Scissor Fobs:

I am pleased with how the fobs turned out and it seems the biscornu looks much happier now.

I participate in Christmas Challenge and decided to make my own design for this month. Here is "Christmas Lantern" Ornament :

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


I have not shown my progress on EMS "Rose Sampler" for a long time. I did not forget about it and keep on stitching on it from time to time.

I have not shown pictures of my dolls for a long time either. I played with two more dolls lately. Unfortunately, I do not know their designers and the names of the dolls are given by me. This one is Annabell, she got a new hair-do and new flowers for the hat and dress.

This is Monique, I also worked on her hair-do a little, still too much hair to my taste, lol

Annabell and Monique are sending "Hello" to their Italian friends from this blog .

I was asked not to post new pitures of bugs and to show more flowers. Fine with me as I do not like bugs so much either. I prepared some pictures for you, they can be called "Tears Of Spring" or "A Garden In Red And White" :-)) .

Happy Mother's Day!!!!

Thank you for stopping by. Happy stitching to everyone!

Those 2 scissor fobs are stunning, just like the other 2 items in your wisteria collection. What a tasteful set!
I love the shape of your Christmas ornament, too!
You've been very busy, haven't you!
Lots of love and Happy Mother's Day XXX

Оленька, какая глициния роскошная, глаз не оторвать!! Как мне нравится этот семплер!! Я тоже мечтаю его вышить!
Куклы!!! Ты цветочки новенькие Анечке смастерила, да? И причесала обех по-новому? Прелесть! Прелесть!!!!! Дай поиграть! :))))
Фото цветов просто ошеломляюще хороши!

Cindy F. said...

Olga, your fobs, ornie and dolls are so beautiful! and your sampler is amazing!
Love your spring flowers:)
Have a great week:)

Nataliya said...

Совершенно необычный комплектик с глицинией, Оленька! И фонарик - готовь сани летом :о)! А также мне очень нравится твой выбор ниток в "розовом" сэмплере. Красота! Жучков нет? Замечательно! А как курочки-цыплятки поживают, давно ты про них не писала! Видела на блошке совершенно потрясающую куклу. То есть, я от них не фанатею, но эта красотка зацепила! Вот только смотрю, у вас они небольшие, а та мадама была сантиметров 70 росту :о(. Мне такие большие не нравятся.

Carla said...

Your posts always have so many gorgeous images that I wish I lived where you live. hahaha!

This Wisteria objects are wonderful! I love purple, pink and lilac shades, so, imagine, your Wisteria project is like heaven to me. The Christmas Challenge isn't that difficult to you, my friend. You create so many wonderful designs and patterns that one more couldn't ache. hahaha! You are a genious creating patterns.

The Rose Sampler is so pretty! I love roses and those ones are beautiful, the blue shade you have chosen to them is so delicate! Could you tell me where did you buy it?

Hahaha! I loved Annabell and Monique, and when you told us that they were sending a hello to their italian friends, I almost could see them waving to the other dolls. hahaha! Annabell has such a classy expression in the eyes!

Flowers, flowers,flowers and... yummy... strawberries! As I said, so many beautiful images! You have such a lovely blog, my friend.
