2016 Cross Stitch Projects

2016crossstitch

Happy Friday!

As promised, today is part 2 of my 2016 roundup: my finished cross stitch projects.

In total, I have finished 20 cross stitch projects last year, 10 from Helene et Mahelia SALs, 2 Christmas gift bags, 1 wedding album cover, 1 ornament, 1 pair of earrings, 1 table centre, 1 bookmark, 1 Ravenclaw shield, 1 hoop art and my big PokeAlphabet.

That’s a few less than the crochet projects but it’s still pretty good. I have also a few started projects for this year, like the Joyful World from Snowflower diaries, which I hope to finish this year 🙂

Have a great weekend!

November SAL with Helene 

Happy Friday!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I participate in mystery SALs organised by Helene on her site Helene et Mahelia. I have actually had this finished for a while but didn’t get the time to show it to you with all the Christmas/New Years madness. 


I’ve already signed up for the SALs next year but I need to finish the December design first (hopefully by the end of January). I seem to be a bit stitched out at the moment but I hope I get my motivation back soon 🙂

October SAL with Helene

Happy Monday! 

Last months SAL was pretty long but it looks amazing. With winter on its way in Europe, where Helene is based, the October design seems perfect. 



Now, onto November!

Snowflower diaries joyful world – March

A quick update tonight on the joyful world SAL from the snowflower diaries. 

I’ve started March and continued the side border 🙂


Hopefully I get a bit more done next week so that I can stay on track. The design is super cute too as always so it should keep me motivated 🙂 

Have a great weekend everyone!

September SAL with Helene

Hello everyone! 

I’ve caught up with the SALs! Yeah! Now I just need to stay motivated and keep going but it shouldn’t be too hard with all the beautiful designs she has in stock for us!  

So here is September, we have been enjoying vines and very nice autumn colours. 


Those grapes took me so long to outline but the final effect is gorgeous don’t you think?

August SAL with Helene

TGIF! 

I don’t know about you but my week has been super super busy! I did manage to finish the August stitch along hosted by the wonderful Helene though. 


I have good hope that I’ll manage to catch up with the SAL in October, as my husband will be away for a good part of the month, which means undistracted stitching time for me! 

Now for an even busier weekend!

Snowflower diaries -February 

Hello everyone! 

Here is my February month on my joyful world calendar from the snowflower diaries. I am going slowly but surely!


And here it is next to January. 

Next up is March and it has such a cute design, with a heron standing in a pond and a tiny chick 🙂 I’m very excited to stitch that one!

July SAL with Helene

Hello readers! 

I know it is August but I’ve been really behind with my stitching in July, as we were on holidays, and I only just finished the July design from Helene et Mahelia

Those are part 1 to 9

 Isn’t that so cute? It made me dream of summer during our very windy Australian winter.

July SAL with Helene

Hi guys,

Here are steps 1-6 for the July SAL. I’m late because I didn’t get any stitching done when I was in Europe (I forgot the first colour needed for the SAL!). 


Hopefully I’ll be able to catch up this month.

June SAL with Helene 

Happy Friday!

With another month comes another SAL with Helene. This month was very interesting and made us travel once more, to the Great Lakes this time, for a beautiful sunset.


For once, the actual finished design was a rectangle and the backstitch made it pop all the more.


That’s it for now! Hope you all have a smashing weekend 😉
