KWAN TUNG..........Elegance !

Hello Everyone, the sun is shining here today in the UK !
   I would like to show you an ongoing project that is magnificent when completed.......I wish there were more kits like this one.......The colours are totally amazing........Take a look........


This piece is stitched with six strands of floss altogether in the needle !


Now I know that you all like your 'EYE CANDY', so I try to post as many different
angle shots as possible !


Lately I have had a creative block......For days now, I have struggled to get anything done.......Maybe after a long winter I just need a holiday !!!
My Diabetes has been playing up and now I have to inject Insulin......But hey its not the end of the world, so I must keep smiling and be thankful for what I have got


So to finish....just a little cross stitch picture that I made many years ago..........


Right, I'm off to have my Easter chuckie egg.........A boiled one.............
Have a great Easter and thank you for popping by and dont forget your waistline girls, with all that chocolate......have fun ..............xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  5. All your work is stunning, and you are right, the colours are great. I can't believe that you did this with all six strands in the needle.
    Creativity comes and goes, it is easy to get a block from time to time. Just be patient and the juices will be flowing again. Managing diabetics can be a challenge, but with a bit of care, changes in lifestyle and a positive outlook you'll be getting along well.
    All the best!

  7. Ohhhhhhh! Is that cotton floss?? If so, then I need to give cotton floss another chance. How elegant and such a gorgeous sheen! Also, what type and size needle did you use please?
