Beware the cats

if you will ever come to visit me, you'll have to be careful, because in my home there live many cats so it is better to hang up many messages out of my door (there already are 2 or 3...).

a few weeks ago I stitched a new one:

this means "beware the cats" and the sweet button-faces make clear how terrible my cats can be, don't they?

the bottons are homemade from an Italian girl. you can see her works in her blog.

the fabric, the thread and the nice trimmings are the works of Romina, another talented Italian girl who loves to dye.

you can imagine I love violet, I think it is clear! I even had bought 2 pots of violets of the same colour of the trimmings and thread. without even thinking about it! it simply is that I am crazy fond with violet!!!! LOL

Mary Poppins SAL

I have found this fantastic Sampler on a fair a few weeks ago. 
I can't resist to Mary Poppins!!!

I bought the kit containing everything but the needle, so it was ready to be stitched.

and the occasion is a SAL that has started on a Facebook group on the 1st of May.

the first step is the border to be stitched within the 15th of May.

I am singing Mary Poppins songs all the time since when I have started to stitch it LOL

next SAL

this is not the only one I am starting in these days: it is a period I am willing to start so many thing! but I must be careful, as I am probably starting new UFO's LOL

this one is a small one, so I have good chances to finish it... let's hope it!

here's what I am going to stitch with two friends of mine:
it is the creation of an Italian designer and I bought it in March in a nice cross-stitch fair.
when I saw those nice buttons and pins I couldn't resist!!! and I discovered that 3 other friends of mine didn't resist too.
one of them has already stitched it as she couldn't wait for it.
with the other two friends we decided to wait for May and stitch it together.

Yesterday I cut the fabric: a nice blue hand dyed.

and on Sunday we will start to work with our Needles. we have planned 4 steps: each one of a week, so it should be finished by the end of the month...

let's hope it... I repeat it! :D
