First ever Model!!! en ABC exchange


A few days ago i happened to visit xs-and-ohs when one had mentioned about her model is out and noticed that my EVER first model from last year was also published. I say my first and last! When i signed up then to stitched i received quite a huge piece. It was really a challenge for me as i have to use three threads on 28ct evenweave, which i was actually used on using two threads. And then during that period of time that i was working on that project we went to Asia to visit my family and stayed for 4weeks. I didn't take it with us as you'll never know with luggages during travel so i had quite a difficulty catching up for my deadline when we got back as well as some exchanges that i joined in that time. I know i was CRAZY! Oh well, glad to see it has finally published, never heard of it anymore after it was received. It seems in haste of sending it back to Canada i haven't taken a last picture of it as it looks this was not the finished piece i had taken but one of my update to the designer.




Received my package for the ABC exchange of SBEBB from Simone. She stitched me this freebie design of With My Needle and finished it off into an ornament.
Really lovely and see all the extra's with the alphabet themes, wonderful! Thanks so much Simone!!


Now is quiet, the girls just went to bed after watching a movie. Chris is been to a birthday party of one of his friends and stay overnight so Grace asked if she can invite her friends to come over for the night and it's alright. We thought they will watch the football game of France and Holland but they opted out for a movie of Sandra Bullock instead. Well, the game is just over and Holland has win with 4-1.

Thanks so much everyone for stopping by, especially to those who take time to leave a comment.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Wow, stitching with three over two on 28 count must've been a challenge. I hate stitching with more than 2 threads - it's so hard to keep them neat. Your model is gorgeous - you did a perfect job!

Beautiful work on the model Mylene!

Wow Mylene that is beautiful though it looks like an awful lot of work.

I agree with you on 28 count I think three threads would be far to bulk to work with. My gracious era design is meant to have three threads in some places but i was not happy and just frogged them and did them again in two. Unfortunately when it is a model you cannot do that.

Congrats on your first model, Mylene. It turned out beautiful. Great exchange, too!

Christine said...

The model is beautiful Mylene. I agree with you though, three threads is too bulky for 28 count, especially on something so solidly stitched.

Your model is gorgeous Mylene but it must have been hard work stitching with three strands on 28 count.

Lovely gifts.
