Kisses everywhere....Cori completed her Tea for Two...LEGS in applique..

with all the steps makes it possible for us all to do this....
And look, she has a gingham skirt and rose skirt too....

We really do compliment one another....
so what is stopping YOU...?

We are showing you every step  on how to applique 
and colour with Floss. YOU will be wondering 
why you have not picked up your hoops, frames and floss before NOW! 

Cori's Tea for Two in Applique

Mine ( Mdm Samm) is in cross stitch...
All colours I used will be in the pattern..
just a bit of shading...YOU will love 
that you use only a few colours and you can colour
using any floss you like....

  1. Dear Mdm Sam,

    thank you for the invitation to collaborate and participate in your beautiful project. I am very pleased that you offered me to do such amazing things with you.
    I am sorry, but unfortunately I can't accept the offer and participate because of the huge amount of work that I have to do. However, I will be enjoying the works of other participants and that makes me feel a lot better!
    Thank you!

    Best wishes,

  2. Love your cross stitching Samm... it is just beautiful. Can't wait to see your paper lady! I am sure she is going to be amazing! xx~Cori

  3. Just bought the lot, I will start next week, when the assembly is over :-)

  4. You both are just amazing with your creative styles...love them both!

  5. Stitching is definitely your happy place. I do like handwork but my heart is still with quilting. I will have to find ways to incorporate the two but until I catch up some quilting projects I can't add many cross stitch projects. I do have some cross stitching from my past that I can show on March 20th. I don't want to completely miss out on all the fun. So count me in for March 20th. However, that is ALSO my date for Tree Birds. I'm cross stitching a cardinal for the Tree Bird hop so I can combine the two hops. How's that for "killing two birds with one stone"....ha!
    Happy Stitching

  6. Both are so pretty. I'm looking forward to the hop and the SAL.

  7. I just bought the 3 month package! I am so excited to begin! The legs in cross stitch and applique are amazing! I love the way one pattern can look so great using different techniques and I LOVE the applique January Paper Lady! This is going to be such fun! Visiting this blog each day is always like sitting down and chatting with friends - I look forward to each post and enjoy them all!

  8. Lovely job done by both of you . I will be looking forward to seeing what you will do with them all.
    Blessings Sandra
