Mid-May 16 : Cross stitch WIP and Book Review

Hello!

Today is May 16th and it snowed this morning…#@&%$$!!! How crazy is that? The transition from Winter to Spring is always a bit disturbing when the weather is playing ”yo-yo” with the temperatures, one day at 21 degrees and the next one at close to 0…

I have some cross stitch progress to share, a lovely book to show and a new essential in my cross stitch notions pouch.

Hello Sunshine Award!

One can’t have too many awards, right? I have recently been nominated for a Sunshine Award by the lovely Hannah from Unsophisticated + jejune. Last month, I received the Liebster Award from Yarns, Books and Roses. Liebster Award is an award given to blogs featuring interesting articles with a small readership whereas the Sunshine Award is for positive, creative and/or inspiring blogs. I sincerely feel honoured and grateful for both of them.

Not a Grammy, not an Emmy….. A Liebster Award!!!

Yesterday, I had the lovely surprise of receiving a Liebster Award from the awesome Yarns, Books and Roses. Thank you so much for your kind nomination. I got a lot of inspiration from your beautiful projects (a few are now in my Ravelry queue, lol) and thanks to you I discovered a lot of gorgeous yarn I had never heard of before. Honestly, it feels good! I started this blog a few months ago as I was experiencing a weird loneliness in my crafting adventures and  I wanted to connect with people sharing the same passion, the same need to craft, the same addiction. Since then, through my blogging journey, I discovered fantastic blogs and I will nominate my favourite ones at the end of this post. Please make sure to check them out!

No knitting for a WHOLE week! Feels strange, feels like… being on a diet, lol!
Last week, I was visiting France and went back to my Hometown where I had the most wonderful time seeing my family and friends. Some of them I hadn’t seen for a year! Going to the places I used to love was almost like a pilgrimage. Want to stroll along the beach with me?

Basically, in this book, you will find written instructions to create customized dolls, 45 accessories including 10 complete outfits and a suitcase (which will be used both as a bed for the dolls and as a wardrobe!).
