After I received my fabric from Polstitches I got the urge to start something new. I really love the fabric as it's so soft! Colours are lovely too. So I decided to go through my stitching magazines to find something nice for "Heavens above" or "Rain forest". After a while I found a chart by Joan Elliott which I have been wanting to stitch for years now. And "Heavens above" is just PERFECT for that pattern. yay!
So I started to stitch "Oriental cranes" by Joan Elliott last week. Its from Cross Stitcher (UK) and issue is.. 178. I haven't stitched that much as A) I am a slow stitcher and B) the day after I started it I had to go away for a weekend. Went to see my friends whom I haven't seen for months so it was worth it. I had such a great time with them, as always :)
I read from the magazine that two cranes represent long marriage. Ah, how I loved that as.. *drums* I got engaged earlier this month!! How exciting! <3 So this one is gonna be perfect! :)
I started by stitching the bamboo frames first. I really enjoy stitching this as the fabric is so, so soft! I can't believe how nice it is to stitch. I will definately buy from Polstitches again, this IS my favourite fabric.
Last week I got a new neighbour too! On a tree right next to my window, there's a small birdhouse and I saw a little blue tit flying there few times, carrying some nest mats. I haven't seen her now but I hope she is inside the nest now ^^
