Yesterday it was hubbies birthday and I wanted to show you one of the gifts.... I made Victoria Sampler's Irish Heart for him. And there were two other pictures I got back from framing but the pics were too dark. So I have to wait till tomorrow to take new pictures. Last week, after I stitched 2 squares on the Drawn Thread Gameboard Sampler ( I want to stitch 2 squares each week now). And then I started this wonderful Eventide Autumn Needleroll. It fits exactly with my autumn feelings :-)

But now, while watching CSI I will stitch on my Christmas Heirloom Sampler. And I'm so anxious to get part 2 of the Chatelaine Medieval Town Mandala Chart :-))))

Scissors Keep back

A long time passed by since my last post ....but I want to thank you so much for your encouraging words. They are so much appreciated :-)

On Friday the 14th my friend Manuela visited me for two days and we finished our scissors keeps. They are completely made by hand and we had a lot of fund while sewing..... The one with the "S" on it is mine ;-)

Look what reverted today....

My ABC-RR was in the mail today. And I'm a bit annoyed how it looks. After all it took 2 years and 26 participants and I stitched on all of their Round Robins..... There are two good things: the fabric isn't damaged and the top stitches are all in the same direction.

I will never do again a Round Robin with people I do not know :-(

Cathy, yes the Christmas Heirloom Sampler is a design by Victoria Sampler and I love to stitch their designs!!! They are such a big fun with all these special stitches.

Here's an update on my MTM. It hasen't grown much lately but I will stitch on it today a bit...

WOHOOOW!!! Now I'm a Member of the Stitching Bloggers Exchange Board and looking forward to some wonderful exchanges though I haven't decided to participate in which ones yet. But I will sign up soon. :-)

I did only few stitching the last days. Lisa (DD) was 11 months old last sunday and her grandparents came for coffee. Yesterday Lisa and I went to babys swimming group. It's such a big fun for her. :)

But I managed to finish part 8 of Christmas Heirloom SAL. It's the last picture I'm able to scan because it's so large now the future pics will be photos...

Now I go back to stitch on MTM.... It's a bit tiring to stitch the flower beds....

Part 6 and 7 of our CHS SAL are done.

Thanks to Carol! She helped me to find out why my MTM looks different to all the others... The bricks behind the fontain are two different colors but symbols look so similar that I didn't realized that there are two colors needed :-(((. Unfortunately it's too late to frog it because I sew some threads behind it.... Today I was so annoyed that I didn't stitch even one stitch on MTM.

First MTM WIP pic

Here is the first Medieval Town Mandala WIP pic. It's done yesterday after 6 days of stitching.

Besides to this one I do a few stitches every day on a cute christmas design for a winter exchange of one of my yahoo groups....

And today I'm goingt to meet a fellow stitcher to visit our LNS and eat a Pizza afterwards. So it will become a very nice day :-))

Becky, your bumblebee button box is georgous. I love it. I wish I could finish my stitching like you do......

I found a nice fabric for the lining of my This Too Shall Pass scissors case. Hopefully it's not too difficult to sew because it was a bit difficult for me to understand the sewing instructions. There were some expressions I don't understand....

Today I'm still stitching on Chatelaine Medieval Town Mandala.

Halloweeeeeeeeeen .......

Thanks to KarenV, Cathy and BeckySC for their nice comments on my last post. I love to read the comments :-) Becky, would you mind to send me a link to a pic of your finished bumblebee button box?

From Wednesday 09/28 to Friday 09/30 I stitched this cute little Holiday Halloween by Drawn Thread and I plan to stitch Holiday Thanks this month.

Does anybody want to trade these Drawn Thread Designs: Holiday Tree, Holiday Hearts and Holiday Wreath ? I would love to make them as well but I don't have them in my stash yet..... :-(((

Friday in the evening Martina Weber send an email with the password for the first part of the Medieval Town Mandala and I immediately started stitching.... Unfortunately I'm still waiting for 3 Gloriana Threads to arrive and one of them is needed in the first part :-(
