Birch trees in winter

This painting was done few years ago. I really like it because I wanted for quite awhile to do birches in winter,and I done this one out of my head. I think I done very well, specially the background as I wanted it to be foggy,so the birches would stand out more.

Birthday Gift

In September I had a birthday, and this is the gift from Heather. A couple weeks before that ,we were in town for coffee with Kay,and afterward she took us to the gift shop to show us the new fairies that had arrived at Leonie store. Of course they were a lot of oohh and aahh,from me and then I saw the cups and saucers,and of course I had to looked at them when I spotted this particular one. The style was different from the other ones,and I said I should get it sometime as I like fairies and of course it was my favorite color. Now I do not have to think about buying it. Very nice gift.

Birthday Present.

Today I thought I show this set of a cup and plate. It was a gift from Heather for my birthday in September. The previous week we had been in town for a coffee with Kay and she took us to Leona to show us her new Fairies items,as she knows that Heather and I like Fairies. Of course there were a lot of ooh and ahh ,but it was when I saw the cups and saucer that enthralled me, and this one more than the other ones as you guessed it was my favorite color and the only one with that

another small cross stitch

Here is another small crosstitch I done a little while ago. It is a Scottish Thistle. I found this pattern on the internet along with other small ones. I done this one after the shoe. Much easier to do. I love the color, of course the flower being purple.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Crossstitch: fancy shoe

I done that crossstich few months ago and did not know what kind of frame to use,as it is hard to find something here. I have these frames so I decided to use one. I use metallic thread for this design as mention in the pattern, and I found it was very hard to use it for the whole design as the thread was hard on the fingers. I was glad when it was done.
