Scissor fob exchange - Saksikoristevaihto Mustikalle


Mustikka has received the scissor fob I stitched for her in the exchange I organized. I wanted to try something new and stitched this. I didn't have a model, so it took some time to count the stitches and find matching, symmetrical designs :) The motifs are published in a French book Repertoires des frises et bordures and the thread is Pomme de Pin Le Feu de Bridget.

Marie asked in the comments earlier how did I add a small photo inside a big one. I've forgot to answer that, I'm sorry! It entered into my mind again when editing the photo above. I use GIMP for photo editing and I like it. GIMP is free software and full of features (I haven't had time to learn even half of them yet...). It takes some time to learn the basic tools, but when you learn them, it's easy to use. There are lots of tutorials in the Internet for using GIMP, so they might help in getting started.

Today is Viola's day in Finland, Viola was my grandmother's name :) To celebrate, there's free shipping on all orders at Violarium today, whatever you order, anywhere in the world! You'll find more information about this offer at Violarium.

Happy Day :)

Mustikalle meni perille saksikoristevaihdon saksikoriste. Halusin kokeilla jotain uutta ja tein tällaisen. Vähän piti laskeskella, että löysin sopivan kokoisia symmetrisiä kuvioita joka sivulle, mutta onnistuin :) Lanka on Pomme de Pinin Le Feu de Bridget ja mallit kirjasta Repertoires des frises et bordures.

Marie kysyi kommenteissa aikaisemmin, että miten olen lisännyt pikkukuvan ison kuvan sisään. Unohdin vastata, mutta nyt asia palautui mieleen kun tätä kuvaa tein. Käytän GIMP-kuvankäsittelyohjelmaa ja gimppaamalla saa aikaan monenlaista :) Suosittelen lämpimästi, se on ilmainen ohjelma, jossa on ominaisuuksia vaikka kuinka, enkä osaa käyttää vielä puoliakaan. Netistä löytyy myös suomenkielisiä oppaita GIMPin käyttöön, kun perustoiminnot oppii, niin sitä on nopsa ja helppo käyttää.

Tänään on Violan päivä, mummini nimi oli Viola :) Sen kunniaksi Violariumista postitetaan tämän päivän aikana tehdyt tilaukset ilman toimituskuluja, lisätietoa löytyy kaupan sivulta.

Ihanaa tätä päivää :)
