combining cross stich and sewing


Some drawstring bags

No news is good news, right?

Well, I wasn't able to post...
but I have been working!

Mainly cross stitching and sewing.
Actually, combining both in the same projects.

And this is my first Doll Quilt.
I am getting used to doing
some very fussy handwork,
 like those tiny appliques in felt,
and very small blocks.
It takes a lot longer to finish a piece of work,
but the results are very rewarding!!!

Another baby cardie finished.
This one goes to a friend who had
a baby girl three months ago.
I hope it will fit her in the winter,
some months from now,
although temperature varies
so much in Sao Paulo,
that I'm sure she'll be able
to use it either in
the morning or in the evening.

This is my frst attempt at
And by an art quilt I mean
gathering the fabric pieces I like
and that I think go together,
and embroidering them randomly.

It is a very liberating process
since I don't plan anything
and just sew and stich whatever I feel like.
I am loving this exercise.

What am I going to do with it,
or for that matter, with the following pieces
I intend to make?
No idea.
It's just for the fun of it
and for the freedom of creating.
We'll see...

For this new year CUTIE PINK BEAR
 got herself a new knitted dress.
Pink, of course, but with a
little yellow heart
appliqued on the front.

It came wth a new bow as a bonus.
She really looks cute, doesn't she?

This little fella wasn't difficult to make at all.
It's a great inspiration for me
to make variations on the theme
like in size, formats, other characters... etc.
