Papillon Part 7 finished

I will start by Thanking you all for all the wonderful messages I got on my first post last week. I've had nearly 200 visits since then and quite a number of followers so far, so a big thank you to all of you!

I've been having a busy week and somehow I managed to stitch quite a lot in my spare time.

I have finished part 7 of the SAL ATW80s. I am enjoying this piece so much. All the new stitches to learn!

So here are the photos:

Complete piece

Isnt it a beauty?

Last week, while doing my groceries, I spotted the latest CrossStitcher mag, and even tho I promised myself I wasnt gonna buy anymore magazines until I can clear out my bookshelf, I couldnt resist this one. It's full of Christmas patterns and I just love stitching Christmas ornaments. So after reasoning for hours, I've given up, bought the mag and went straight looking for materials to stitch a small and simple pattern. 

Pattern from CrossStitcher magazine - November/2012 issue

Photo is not doing any justice to the fabric. It is a bright pistachio green and looks gorgeous with the bright blue
And a huge Thank you to my dear Jenny who gave me the felt for the little fish

I am still learning my way around this blog, so please ladies, if you are still having problems to stalk me or can see photos, please let me know and I will try and fix it as soon as I can.

Talk soon



  1. Your 80 sts is stunning, I am finding it tricky to stitch at times but well worth the hard work in the end.
    Cute little Eskimo too love the colours.

  2. Love the Papillon design!! Great stitching!

  3. I set up to follow your blog. I have enjoyed seeing your stitching. I found that taking photos and getting true colors can be very troublesome. Photos taken in bright sunlight can show colors better.

  4. ATW is looking wonderful. Cute eskimo x

  5. One can never have too many patterns. I like your little ornie -- very cute. And ATW80 is gorgeous!

  6. Hi Cami,
    The ATW80 is really stunning love the colours you choose :). And the ornie is indeed really cute :)

  7. WOW Cami, ATW is really looking wonderful !!

  8. Wow! ATW is beautiful! I haven't heard of this pattern before-it is really gorgeous and such lovely stitching!

    1. Hi anniebeez,
      The 'Around the World' is a SAL from Papillon Creations. Have a look at her website as you can still join in and download the previous parts. She has just released part 8, so just the beginning. Thanks for your comment. Cami
