building an ark


The titel sounds like a lot of heavy work is going on around here!
Well, not yet... I don't hear any hammering and sawing at this very moment but....there is a slight possibility that this can change real soon!! That is if I can convince DH how much fun it is to make this arc and its animals!
I saw it in this book; and I love it.

And now a little update on the other arc!
As I told you in March, I joined the stitch-along Noah's Ark BOM from Lynette anderson designs.
The first month "two rabbits" is finished. Please keep in mind this was my first stitchery attempt.


I'm still working on month 2 "the dove".
Month 3 "rainbow and cows" and month 4 "the kangaroos" are waiting patiently to be next.

I'm in no hurry, its a pleassant little work to do in between and its lovely to see it grow.
I'll keep you posted, till next time!

Kissing rabbits - they are beautiful :)

Wonderful stitching! You have chosen some tiny designs to start with - they will test your eyes out. I have been tempted to do these little stitcheries myself & seeing yours may just be the inspiration I need!

I have the dove and rabbits finished too!!

It looks like you have been stitching for years! I adore this stitch-a-long. These animals are so cute. I am still on the rabbit one. I was silly and am using a harder stitch for the rabbits so it is taking me longer. I should have just done the backstitch like you. I enjoy reading about your adventures and look forward to many more. Love Stacy

I am sure you will convince him that it is necessary to build that arc :)

Hallo Corry, hier is nog een Corrie, maar dan met "ie" die dol is op arken van Noach en er ook zelf één gemaakt heeft. Ik ben er nog steeds heel trots op, je kunt hem zien op mijn weblog en ik denk dat het ook voor jou nog een idee is om die van mij te maken als jouw DH niet aan het timmeren slaat. Er wordt in mijn ark namelijk ook stof verwerkt en daar ben jij dol op. Hier kun je hem zien: http://wittebroodjes.web-log.nl/corrie/2007/11/larche_de_no.html
Ik heb hem gemaakt uit een boek dat ik via Amazon France heb gekocht en deze schrijfsters hebben nog meer mooie patroonboeken gemaakt. Ik vind het houten exenplaar in het boek dat jij hebt gekochtIk heb je schattige bloemenquiltje in pasteltinten zéér bewonderd en ook je eerste stitchery vind ik echt heel erg leuk, helemaal geslaagd!

Love the wooden Noah's Ark! Do you do woodwork yourself or will your DH help you? What a fun thing to make. I am stitching the Noah's Ark blocks too. I just got caught up and posted them on NeedleNecessities if you want to see them. They are great fun to do aren't they?!

Hugs en groetjes ~
Heidi

Corry, I would never have guessed this was your first stitchery. It's fantastic. Beautiful work (as always).
Can't wait to see each month's work...

I'm also stitching them and having lots of fun! Your's look great!

Elly said...

Wat leuk zeg, die ark van Noah! Helaas is mijn man niet zo knutselig, en met hout ben ik ook een absolute ramp, dus hier zal hij nooit komen jammer genoeg. Maar ik ben benieuwd hoe het bij jou gaat worden. Schattig borduurwerk ook, deze manier van borduren wil ik ook nog eens proberen, lijkt me zo'n leuk werkje!

Jackie said...

So glad to see that you are doing Lynette's BOM. I am too!! It was also my 1st attempt at stitchery and I am loving it. Yours is absolutely beautiful. I am now doing my cows then onto the kangaroos. It is so much more fun building an ark this way!

Leanne said...

Rachael Rabbit said...

Loving the rabbits ;-)

Susan said...

Your stitching is beautiful and these are so cute to do...I am working on them, too. I love your idea of making a wooden Noah's Ark. Maybe we could start a wood-working challenge?!

Levin (and Emily) said...

Your stitching looks wonderful...I really love the Two by Two blocks!

Heidi said...

lovely stitching! I hope to once sit down and learn to stitch like that - have never done it before and would love to learn. I love anything with a Noah's Ark theme, so can't wait to see that project!
