small finishes & last tulip pictures!


Just finished this "I" butterfly alphabet, love how it turned out now but i wasn't happy with all the backstsitching. So glad it is now done and will be on it's way to you Betty by next week.


Also completed the month of May of Sylvia's SAL on her blog.

Again, we've been out for a drive last sunday, probably the last...not much Tulips flower to see anymore. Lots were already cut off! As you can see here on a couple of pictures.






I truly appreciate all your visits on my blog and THANKS so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. Wish you all a happy weekend!

Wonderful finish Mylene. And I just love your SAL - is so sweet! Such beautiful pictures of those Tulips - I can't imagine seeing all of those in one place.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Lovely stitching, the Heart SAL is so pretty! We still have to wait a while to see tulips bloom in the gardens... but not to the extent your photos show, of course :-)

Hi Mylene! Susie, from 1st Floor Flat, just referred your blog to me, and I'm very happy to meet you!... Looking through just SOME of your past posts, I want to say how beautiful all your work is! I am more a crocheter than a cross-stitcher, but I LOVE doing both! I am presently working on a cross-stitch "100-Blessings" project, so I have one blog set aside just for that, and hope you will visit me at either one of my blogs, when and if you can! Enjoy this beautiful weekend, and I am now your newest follower! I look forward to visiting again soon! ~tina

What a darling finish. I also love your sampler in progress. So cute!
Have a great day.
Hugs.

Kay said...

The small finish looks beautiful, I myself am not so fond of back stitching at times but it does make the piece look better when done. Your Sal is coming along beautifully as well! It is sad to see that most of the tulips are gone now but it is still a pretty sight to see.

Ingrid said...

The SAL is looking great and your finish is wonderful Mylene.
Beautiful pictures .... thank you for sharing !
Have a nice weekend !

Hallo Mylene,

Love the tulip pictures, sorry it is the end of them. We just have corn, soy bean, hey and wheat fields. Fields of flowers would be so much better.
You stitching looks great and the SAL is turning out very pretty.
