We are back from a wonderful holiday at the Baltic Sea. We had a great time and the weather was OK. We took a lot of time just relaxing and doing some biking tours in the beautiful scenery.

In the evenings and during the lazy days I did some stitching of course. :-)
The first thing I stitched was a lighthouse the ABC-RR I'm participating:

Then I stitched a small one for my little Lisa. Bent Creeks Dance of Bumblebee.....

....before I had to stitch Felix in New York for a fellow stitcher in Austria. She wants it as a big sampler for her son. I think it turned out very nice. It is now on it's way to the last stitcher before returning to Austria.

And last but not least I stitched part 4 and 5 of our Heirloom Christmas SAL.

Thank you!!!

I'm very happy about your nice comments about my pillow. Thank you so much. :-)

Today I didn't do much stitching because we're leaving tomorrow for our two weeks holiday *yippie* and I had a lot work left to do...

I only finished stitching a small gift but of course l can't show a picture before it reaches the addressee. I'll show you later

Pillow finished!!! Wooohoooooo!!!

Today I finished my Passé Composé heart into a pillow. It will fit very well into our hall. Usually it takes a long time till I get out my sewing machine and finish my stitching... But I promised to better myself :-)

Yesterday in the evening I stitched Band 4 and 5 which means part 3 of our SAL. It's such a big fun to stitch it never becomes boring. And the special stitches are very well explained.

I don't know if there will be some time for stitching tomorrow. I have to pack all the things for our holiday trip starting on Thursday.

This Shall Too Pass

stitching is done today. :-) and I like it very much how it turned out. Now I have to buy some fabric for the lining. But I don't know if I will get one before leaving to the baltic sea. By the way the wheather is very fine at the moment :-) I hope it will not change during our two weeks holiday......

I read the sewing instructions but I'm not sure if I understood everything. I have a few sewing experience so I will get it done anyway.....I hope so ;-)

got some Ebay-Stash

yesterday I got my ebay stash. It's Victoria Sampler February Needleroll and Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament Issue from 1990. These older issues are OK but not that good as the newer ones....

Thursday, September 01, 2005's finally done!!!!!

I stitched Drawn Threads Random Thougts from October 2004 - April 2005 and got the bellpulls just in time after finishing the stitching. But then I put it away ..... and today I finally attached the charms. Wohooooo. It's a real shame that it was in a cupboard for such a long time.....
I really love the Drawn Thread designs, aren't they wonderful?
