Gift and skirt

I got a gift from my parents because I got my propedeuse :D.
Cat coasters from Margaret Sherry. I think the look really cute ^^.

I didn't stitch much last week because I was making a skirt!
It's the first skirt I ever made. It's the black thing. The pink thing is a petticoat.
This was my outfit for an rock n roll party:).

I have lots of time to stitch this week so a lots of updates I hope! Only need to find batteries for my camera and hoping that it still works after I spilled some coke over it :$.

About backstitching...

Yesterday I finished the little stitch project for the charityquilt.
As usual I was very exciting when I get to the backstitching. I know a lot of stitcher don't like backstitching, but I really love it! It give a great look to you're project!
Just see the difference:

I can not figure out how it's possible to not like backstitching:p.

O, and by the way: the kitty looks really cute, isn't he:D.

I also did a bit on the bookmark. Not much done yet as you can see:

And I have a new thing to ease my cross stitching!
I used to split threads with my mouth. But since I had a piercing that didn't worked very well.
So I started to look around for a threadspliters and when I saw how it works I started to create my own.

It's a really easy concept: just put something heavy under you're threads!
I have no idea how the thing I used is called in english, but for the dutch people:
It's a knijper.

I was planning to post yesterday but blogger was acting weird so it became today.

New update's on bookmark and other things is coming soon!

That's all folks!
