The Pin Up Girls

Hello everybody!

It's been a while hun?!

I've been working on my Pin Up Girls project and I finished the first one.

SODA SO-G70 "The Pin up Girl"
Stitched on Linen
Started on January 15th
Finished on February 21st


Isn't it adorable? I plan to stitch only three girls. 


I had fun using the linen, it's easier to stitch and I'm learning how to use the circular hoops..some people say it's better when you want to get perfect "crosses". The only thing I can't change in my life is the back of my projects..


I know, it's a mess! Nobody will see it :D

Now I'm stitching the second girl..


I'm almost finishing :D


Wish you all an excellent weekend!!!!

XOXOXO,

Isabella.

Soda SO-G22 - World collection

I told ya I was gonna finish those girls and I did, after almost 10 months.

Soda SO-G22. World Collection
Stitched in white Dohler Aida
Started on February 10th of 2014
Finished on January, 9th of 2015


I had to drop the korean girl because I went out of some flosses... as you know, they don't sell DMC in Brazil anymore :(


I had my girls washed and I made the passe-partout to send them for framing. If you wanna take a look, just follow the link for the tutorial.


I can say I was very very happy to see it finished because I kept promising myself I was gonna end this project but everytime I had free time to stitch, I got lazy. Finishing it made me wanna wish to stitch again, and I did..I chose the pin-up girls (Soda SO-G70)


And it's almost done! I plan to stitch only 4 girls but I hope I don't take 10 more months to finish them! ehehehehehe

Take care!
XOXOXO, Isabella.

Getting back..


Hello again! :D

I'm done with greece girl, now there's 4 more girls left for me to stitch :D Yay!!!!

This month of june was kinda good because of the World Cup..we are working only during the morning on the days that Brazil has played..I don't like watching soccer so I decided to stitch a little.


This project is getting so adorable! Can't wait to see it done!

There is one thing I wanna show..this adorable sewing case I got from Marcia Marinho, it is perfect to keep the projects I'm stitching....she was the one who sewed the matrioska I bought.


It came full of goodies, together with this adorable cupcake pincushion :D The inside is so well sewed with small pockets to keep needles, measuring tape and other tiny suff.


Yesterday was my 10th wedding aniversary and the day started with some flowers at work. I love when my husband send me flowers, it is better that any other present for me :D I was so so happy!


I wish you all an awesome weekend!

XOXO, Isa.

Kitchen towel day :D

Hi girls!

Good news! I'm working!

After 6 years taking care of my special boy I am back to work and feeling alive! I am really happy that I'm gonna make own money! I don't like depending on my husband that much 'cause I work since I was 18 years old but sometimes we have to make difficult choices in life and I chose to give more attention to my boy that has some kind of syndrome between autism and asperger..the diagnose is not closed yet.

He is 7 now, he already reads, writes and speaks (with some kind of difficulty) but I felt it was time to get back to my routine.

The problem now is that I only have the weekends left for crafting, so... I took some hours today for finishing two kitchen towels to the church bazaar.

I was missing the brushes so much I decided to paint this little bear..


My brushes are old and used but they still serve :D 



The other towel is for xmas..a cute aplique reindeer :D



Simple things made with love!

Wish you all an awesome week!!

XOXO, Isa.

Hello everybody!

Hi everybody!

Shame on me! I am almost a ghost here hun?! Sorry for the disappearance!!! I have lots of photos today :D

I have no excuses to give you for not being present, I only can say that things were happening around here and I forgot about the crafting world a little :D

I forgot about my little girls too! I only have three done but I promised myself that they are gonna be done this semester :D


I have another thing to show you...take a look at this cute Matrioska Pillow:


I ordered from a friend of mine, Marcia Marinho. She sews perfectly! This pillowcase it's just darling! It's about 17 inches high and she used my favorite colors!

There is another thing I wanna show...my second patchwork pillowcase:


I really love vibrant colors! It was super easy to do! I used half squares to make triangles..I'll try to show you how easy this is next time :D

The last thing is my son's 7 years birthday party last monday. He is a special kid and he loves peppa pig..so I decided to surprise him with this cute birthday table:


All the tableware were customized by my brother and I printed and glued everything. I had lots of help from 3 friends of mine for the decoration :D I use to say that if you have good friends, you have everything.

Matheus went crazy when he saw the cake!


The party was awesome! My apartment is so tiny but eveybody came to make him happy!


This is my aunt, she just turned 60,  together with my son and that's why she is blowing candles with him :D


This is only part of the people, the living room was full!

This is party of my family..

 My two oldest sons


  Husband and I


My two adorable brothers

I am a happy happy woman!

Hope u all liked :D XOXOXO, Isa.

Sewing adventures!

Hello girls!

Nothing new with my cross stitching progress :( I didn't start the second girl yet as I promised but I made something different this weekend.

I made this colorful pillowcase!


Don't you guys think it's cute? I think I made a little progress with the patchwork lessons on youtube :D

I made this kitchen towel too! I had to use the ultra bond paper, I don't have the sewable one and I had a hard time on sewing this 'cause it is thick and full of glue..the sewing machine almost went broken with it..


I did some fabric paiting too :D


That's it for today! Hope to be back soon with some progress with cross stitching.

I wish you all an awesome weekend and holiday 'cause next week we have carnival!!

XOXO, Isa.
