Three French Hens. And A Giveaway Soon!

Hi everyone! It's been a month since my last post! I've got a new design to show and some news to share.

First up, let me show you my new design that I had done last month ~ Third design of Twelve Days of Christmas "Three French Hens". I love how it came out.


I stitched this model on 32 count Star Sapphire linen. I just love the red, white and black color combination. Isn't it beautiful? :) I currently doing the charting for this design because I almost always revise the colors and small details as I go.

At the same time, I am now start working on the fourth design of Twelve Days of Christmas ~ "Four Colly Birds" and stitching the model. I am so love stitching it, I will keep you updated.

Next is about my online store. I can't believe how fast these two years has gone by… or how much cross stitch charts that I had created. Maybe because I am cognitively busy and as a result, time feels like it passes so quickly. In these two years, I designs, model stitchings, prints and brought life to 10 designs, in spite of my busy schedule as an art director and a mother of 2 young daughters. I'm so unbelievably excited to announced the grand opening of my online store soon! To celebrate the grand opening of my online store, I'll be doing a giveaway, stay tuned!

Let me show you the designs that I had done in these two years.

"Cupcake Cottage". My first cross stitch design.


"A Partridge In A Pear Tree".


 "Two Turtle Doves".


 "Autumn In The Village".


 "Christmas Angel".


 
"Kitchen Prayer".

 "Spring".

 "Summer".

 "Autumn".

 "Winter".

Which one do you like the most? I will pick the most voted chart as one of the giveaway item on my next post.

I hope all enjoy the weekend with whatever you plans and don't forget to come back here for my giveaways! :) Happy stitching!
