Redwork Scissor Pocket And More

Firstly, I'd like to thank those of you who comes to my blog and leaves comments, they all are so precious for me. Secondly, my mother is feeling better , a little bit better but it is so good to have some good news from her - thank you very much for your good wishes.
I have been very busy lately: we were preparing for our wedding anniversary and I have started some renovation of my stitching room - I got tired of looking at the same things from day to day and want some changes. And one more piece of good news - my son is getting married in a few days, I spoke with him yesterday, he sounds very happy.
I have been working hard on the stitching front too. Look what I have prepared for you.
 I continued working on Redwork collection and made 3 more designs .
Here is Redwork Scissor Pocket, front and back:
 Then goes Redwork Scissor Fob:
 And the third item is Redwork Altoids Top:
I set myself the task to make the designs look lacy, I hope I have reached the goal.
   If you are interested in buying any of my designs, please contact me. My e-mail is in my Profile.
I also made some more designs in  Cheerful Daisies. Today I am presenting Cheerful Pink Daisies. I stitched the pattern one over one and decided to finish it into a box:
I am very happy with the result: the box turned out rather cute.
* * * * * * 
I also want to ask you what is the color of  your cheerful daisies or what flower is cheerful for you.
There have happened so many good events in my life lately that we need to be celebrate them. There is nothing  better in the Blogland than a giveaway. So I'd like to invite you to take part in my giveaway. The winner will get Cheerful Daisies in her/his favorite color stitched and finished by me, and some more stitching goodies.
Does this sound good to you? Let's have fun!

  Oh I almost forgot about my SALs.
Here is my TUSAL box, it's growing!
I enjoyed working on my Christmas SAL piece and even thought to stop other projects and to finish it. But my husband told me (again!) how much he would like to have a picture of a windmill. And I really stopped everything and started a windmill for my husband. It would have been great to finish the picture for our anniversary but no way: I had too little time at my disposal and  besides the windmill design which I have is not exactly what my husband wants.
As you can see the original is very feminine, I am very sorry but I have to delete these pretty flowers, though I might leave some. But I was asked to make the windmill more prominent.
I will leave you with some more pictures that I took in the Rose center, enjoy them.
Happy stitching to everyone!

Oh Olga, you are creating once again :o) Beautiful new line.

That's wonderful to hear that your mother is feeling better AND that your son is getting married! That is reason to celebrate :o)

I can't believe how much you have stitched on the windmill already! I will be interested to see how you take out the flowers in the front.

Speaking of flowers, those are beautiful pictures you took of the roses.

I like blue flowers the best, such as bluets or forget-me-nots. I would like the daisy project in any color you choose.

I'll blog about this. You can email me through my blog.

Fabulous stitching. Gorgeous roses.

Bhooma said...

I love this set. it is beautiful like your other designs are. I would love to enter your giveaway

Brigitte said...

Your new set is just as beautiful as your other creations. You're a wonderful designer.
Your new WIP looks great so far. And I think the idea to leave the flowers out in order to make the windmill itself more prominent is really great. I'm looking forward to seeing this project finished.
