I've been stitching up a storm this week and what's more, I actually have a finish to show! Let me introduce you to Camille...
Camille turned up real prettily in HDF BeCreamed.
This is Paul.
Paul is dressed in HDF Examplar Fried Pickles.
And last but not least is Myrtille.
Myrtille decided to make its appearance in HDF Old Maid of the Heart.
All three of them, ready to party!

Four pairs of scissors that I bought from Ebay arrived in my mailbox last Friday. I've been drooling over these Retro Scissors when I first saw them appear on stitchers' blogs.
I finally treated myself to them. My excuse? For my birthday! Aren't they pretty?
Recently, I won some tatted ornaments made by Cathy's mum. Don't you think these are just so delicate and exquisite? Huge thanks to both Cathy and her mum for having the giveaway. They'll definitely be treasured.
I had a BOMB on Saturday, attending NNC Yahoo Group's Stitching Bee. Wonder why it's called a Stitching Bee... never got around to asking but I digress. Anyway, thanks to Faizon I got a better understanding of tatting. I left the Bee with these...
The book is written by Faizon with clear, concise and easy-to-understand instructions. The threads are courtesy of Zarina. Two balls of size 50 threads and a yummy skein of "Orchid Garden" hand dyed by Zarina. In order to be able to use them, I must first master tatting :) Zarina also sells her threads on Etsy. Check out her Etsy shop here. Thank you so much again, ladies.
I'm planning to have another giveaway again soon so do drop by again in the next few days. Happy stitching!
