This is what I'm knitting at the moment. This is going to be a short sleeved top for myself. It's just a very easy pattern, great to do while watching tv.The other top that I was knitting is being put away.I keep making mistakes so I did a lot of frogging.............maybe one day I'm going to try it again.
Here are my cross stitch projects I'm working on.
Maybe I'm going to frame it or turn it into a small pillow, I don't know it yet.

And this is a tiny stitching that I will turn into a scissors fob.

I belong to a nice cross stitchers group on the internet and we're having some exchanges going on. This is the kitted up freebie exchange I put together for last month.
I put the freebie kit in this selfmade fabric bag.

Those fabrics you used in the bag or so sweet! I like the halloween embroidery patterns, can't wait to see how you gonna use them!

Paula said...

That's a great little freebie bag and kit you made. What fun! I really like your little Witchy cross stitch. You're so creative!

Sharon said...

What a cute little bag you made. I'm impressed with the knitting. Tried it and just can't do it. I'll stick to my crochet.

Tjeetje, ik zou best jouw swap-partner willen zijn, hahaha!!! Wat weer mooi gemaakt! En ik vind je borduursels ook weer erg leuk. Een kussentje lijkt me een goed idee.
Ik heb zelf ook nog steeds een hoop patronen liggen, maar lijk me er maar toe te kunnen zetten.
Ik wacht de resultaten vol smart af!

Hi Monique!
I really love everything that you make, i specially loved the pretty Lavenderbags that you made at the Dutch forum day! You are very busy making lots of beautiful things, lovely energy in her at the moment! And your dutch waffles, jummy! :)

love the fabric bag - the fabric is beautiful.
your cross stitches are so cute - just right for Halloween. Emily was hoping to make some things for her Halloween party that she is having, but so far she hasn't produced anything and there isn't much time left :)

Hi, Monique, it's your SwapSister here. I started knitting you a scarf but then I stopped, because, after reading through your posts and looking at your photos, I became frightened of my limited knitting skills. No matter, I have slipped a little something into the mail for you. Enjoy, friend!

Mia said...

You certainly seem very busy with all your lovely projects. I too like to have several different ones going on at the same time. That way, if I get bored with one, I can just continue on an other one. And yet, I am impressed by all the things you do.

I love that idea of the thread and pattern in the little handmade "purse". I may have to steal that idea for a swap I'm in!
God bless.

Your cross stitches are so cute! I'd love to find some Hallloween patterns!

Wouw, monique!!
Je hebt echt heeeel leuke dingen op je blog staan, ik vindt dat stoffen tasje voor borduurgaren helemaal super! Leuk dat je ook een blog hebt, kan ik ook eens wat inspiratie op doen.. Momenteel ben ik ook weer ijverig aan het breien: een peutertrui voor onze jongste (begin vandaag aan de mouwen, de rest is klaar) en (niet lachen...) een vaatdoekje. Die kwam ik zoveel tegen op het net..ik kon het niet laten..
Tot schrijfs!
Groetjes Manon.
