Not Tonight Dear,

For all you ladies with husbands, here is a good model. I did this little cushion on 28 count pale pink linen, 1/1 with DMC 815 & 415. I thought is was cute and laughable.

Along with the stitched model, here is the pattern for you to stitch.

10 Commandements de La Brodeuse

I am stitching the wonderful 10 Commandment of the Embroiderer.
After tracking it down, it is no longer available so I emailed a few bloggers that stitched it and voila. That one blogger was nice enough to sent it to me. With thanks to Cristina at De Fils en Etoffes.

Since I am in such a great mood & I am renewing my wedding vows on Saturday for my 5th Anniversary this past September, if anyone wants a copy of this beautiful piece, just comment me and leave your email address where to send it PDF.

I made a new cushion for my door welcoming all who enter.

I used 16 count flax, 1 over 2 & DMC 815. Some buttons, ribbons and a tassel to bring it all together.
Something simple while I work on my big projects. Having problems with my Antique and Romantic SAL.

I found this cute Alphabet Biscornu free on Pinterest and I am here to share.
I need to stitch this soon.

I started a sign with the snow keeping me indoors.
I am using 40 count flax, 1 over 2, DMC 930 & 931 and my magnifier in hand because I can not see the holes.

The pattern is Chez-Isabulle that I actually found free on the net & is on my free patterns page.

Knitting Basket

I wanted some ideas to stitch my knitting basket that I bought from the flea market and my friend Celine at Toile de lin et petites croix had taken photos of a basket that her friend Françoise who does not have a blog, made so beautifully that I had to show it off to stitchers.
I love how she made the bottom curved and it is not the typical rectangle shape. I have to give a bravo to her. I do have this pattern and I do not know if I want to copy but it is so great.

Unknown Model

After doing some investigating on the internet looking for this unknown model. I did find a piece of it.
I only found one piece of the puzzle which is from the book Mode d'hier et d'aujourd 'hui au point de croix by Veronique Enginger. She probably made some of the rest in her imagination and not on paper.
The pattern is below.
