What I've been up to...

If I haven't blogged recently, doesn't mean that I haven't got anything done. I have finished my icon #3 for grandma! It turned out so pretty and doesn't matter how hard I tried, I couldn't take a picture that would show the true color and beauty of it. I might have to take some photograpgy classes to improve my picture taking :)

I also finished the kit that I purchased called "Winter". I like the way it turned out, however not sure how easy it will be for someone to frame it. The silky fabric that I have stitched on easily puckles up. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed. The company that makes these kits is called "Nova Sloboda" and they have another 7 kits in this series. They are all gorgeous and I'd like to make at least another 2, but I'll have to frame this one to see how it turns out before I buy anymore.

And finally more news: I have started on the icon #4!!! Another St. Nicolas, bigger and better for myself!!! Here's some pictures, check them out!

Спасибо большое! Я тоже рада знакомству. Сегодня пыталась оформить икону, но мне сказали, что до Пасхи не успеют, поетому придется оформлять в другом месте :)
