A big Hello to all friends and readers and Happy August to all :D.

2 weeks ago, my lovely stitching friend, Mary J. from US send me a lovely stitching and introduce me to Β new designer~ Gera, from Japan.
I love the design that I begin stitching it..

Ta-dah.. Is Alice and the Cheshire Cat. I got to admit that I’ve made slight changes to Alice’s eyes and Mouth.. I didn’t really like the original design where the eyes and mouth were cross-stitched.. so I’ve changed to french knots and added a back-stitching line to the mouth

As for the finished, I added onto a Hoop which is decorated with fabric tape.. And as you can see, I’ve added some charms too..
Yes.. I’m pretty mad with all these beautiful metal Charms, that I’ve a box of it.. LOL.. I’m blessed with great friends who give/add a few charms when they send me something. Thank you my friends.

From the Left to the right, the first two, which I picked was a pocket-watch which The White Rabbit carries with him. The White Rabbit was a lovely gift given to me by Anika from the Netherlands.

Then the key to symbolized the part where Alice finds to the Small door down the rabbit hole.
A jug to symbolize the Mad tea party. I cannot remember who gave me the pretty jug charm.
The decks of cards which symbolize theΒ three living playing cards (guards) painting the white roses on a rose-tree red in the garden, as the red Queen hates 4

Heehee.. I just love how the charms can represent and symbolized memories or characters in the story..

  1. Oh wow, that Cheshire cat looks demented! (the best way for it, really!) I honestly have no idea what I’d do with those charms, so I’ll leave it for someone else to win πŸ˜›

  2. Wow what a colorful cat… It’s really pretty. Oooooh goodness I love your hoop wall… I have seen in magazines stitching displayed in hoops, your wall is wonderful. Charms are I must say a new thing for me… But oh they really compliment your work, and I am getting excited just thinking about all the different ways they can be used. I really like how you used the charms on your stitch… They represent parts of the Alice in wonderland story… It’s brilliant.
    Oooh yes please I would love to be entered into your give away πŸ™‚
    Smiles πŸ™‚

  3. it looks lovely and the charms compliment the stitching so well. So pretty too to have a group of hoops together. I love GERA designs too, they are different and colorful, whimsical and wonderful to stitch. I have used the designs for postcards.

  4. I love your Cheschire Cat/ Alice hoop and the charms add that extra something. Makes me want to make something similar for my daughter or granddaughter. We are all very fond of Alice. So I will enter your giveaway. if I don’t win maybe I can find out it they sell similar things in the UK. I presume as a follower that you have my email.

  5. Oh, how I love charms! They bring memories of growing up when my parents gave me a charm bracelet. Whenever we’d travel, I’d receive a charm in remembrance of the trip. I’d LOVE to be in your drawing.
    Many thanks –

  6. What a great idea! I never thought of adding charms to my needlework. I would love to win these! Thank you!

  7. Alice is one of my favourite stories too!! And those charms fit SO perfectly!! I like the idea of a hoop wall… I may have to copy your idea… If I ever get around to finishing some of my personal projects!

  8. Those charms really connected to Alice in Wonderland! And what a cute croas stitch you made. I’d love to join the contest. May add them to my charms collection if I win. 😁

  9. Oooh! I love Gera! I have an Alice in Wonderland piece I almost have finished. It’s Alice and the White Rabbit. (I posted a picture a while back on my blog). Yours is so cute. I like how you tweaked it. I have quite a few gift projects i’m about to start. I’d love to have a shot at winning those cute charms. :3
