STITCHER COLLECTION FABRIC #1






Hello my dear friends, I promised you  I would be back very soon right? 
Well I'm here today to show you a very new project of mine. It's been long time since I started to dream about to make my own cotton fabric for my primitive finishing, so here we're, the dream came true!!! And today I'm very proud to show you my first fabric totally designed by me. It's the first of a series called STITCHER COLLECTION.
This one is very sweet indeed, I chosed very soft colors for this simple design, can you imagine to use it for your pincushions finishing or to cover the inside of a box and sewing basket,!? so many ideas indeed!!! This fabric is now on my Etsy and I've only 8 pieces available ..so hurry!!! and have one. Click HERE and you're done!!! have a splendid day and ...keep on stitching

Care amiche oggi sono qui per presentarvi un mio nuovo progetto  rimasto nel cassetto per parecchio tempo. Finalmente il sogno si è avverato ed ecco qui la  prima stoffa totalmente disegnata da me. Era da tempo che  pensavo di creare una stoffa solo mia utile per confezionare i miei ricami, semplice e raffinata ma al contempo un pò primitive ..essenziale... ed oggi ecco qui queste roselline e queste piccole forbici che iniziano una serie dal titolo STITCHER COLLECTION. 
Se siete interessate all'acquisto di un pezzo di questa stoffina non esitate a cliccare qui
Felice ricamo a tutti

VINTAGE PAPER MACHE BOXES




 ...I just LOVE boxes, it's always such a pleasure for me have boxes around me, I can keep everything I need on them , so I made those lovely paper mache boxes, painted them sanded...adding wool pumpkins to keep pins and needles...and I use my little crochet works on the top with a real little acorn, I love acorn too!!!
 Hope you like them, they're going to come with me to Celebration of Needlework in Nashua (NH) end of April, they're so useful for our little stitching tools...if someone is interested in them I'm putting them on my Etsy so you can have them...keep on Stitching XXX Niky.
Adoro le scatole, di ogni tipo, di latta, di legno, di carta, prediligo quelle piccole dove posso conservare i piccoli utensili sparsi in giro nella mia craft room.
Oggi vi propongo queste deliziose scatole in carta pesta che ho dipinto ed invecchiato fino a farle diventare dei veri gioielli. 
Ho aggiunto vecchi pizzi all'uncinetto e realizzato piccole zucche porta spilli, utilissime per il nostro cesto porta lavoro. Se vi piacciono le potete acquistare nel mio negozio Etsy, cliccate qui!!!
Keep on Stitching               xxx Niky.
