Garden - Parts 6,7 & 8

My Garden is now up to date! I've done parts 6,7 & 8. Quite easy to do but somehow the frog still comes to visit and I find myself having to annoyingly unpick some stitches cos I didn't count properly or I used the wrong color floss....
Part 9 will only come out in September so that leaves me plenty of time to start something new...
I've decided what I want to do next but I just don't know when I will actually start it!!!

Another Small Project

This time buat Pinkeep pulak. The last pinkeep I made was for an exchange...however I was not too happy with the finishing cos the stitched piece was not centered properly (Sorry to my exchange partner Salmi!!)

So I decided to try another one.... I think the finishing is better this time but it's not as neat as I would like it to be. For the front I stitched a freebie from here.

I used Carries Threads - Blueberry Pie and Olde World Red... the colors are gorgeous and stitching without having to change floss is soooo fun. I added a pocket to the back and put some edging that I tatted.

My personal opinion tho.... I still prefer Mattress Pincushion.... so much easier to finish!!!

Pocket Book

Every month bila dapat TGOS mesti ada some pattern that catches my eye but time and energy does not permit me to stitch everything that I want to! But after finishing my PV, I told myself that I won't start any big projects yet, want to try and do some smalls. So this is the first one. It's from TGOS, January 08. Took me about two weeks to stitch and a few more days to complete the finishing.
The problem with me is when I finish the stitching I'm soooo lazy to do the finishing.....
I made two small changes to the pattern, the first cos I didn't count properly and didn't want to do any frogging. The second was because I thought it looked better that way!
Anyway this is the finished product, I used good old DMC instead of the recommended silk threads...
