Here's a close up of the hardanger I'm working on. I will finish the satin stitches tonight and thought about what I will do next, cut the threads in the heart or do all the algerian eyelets. I decided to do the eyelets first....

Today I was allowed to open my christmas exchange gift. I received this beautiful stocking ornament. It is stitched in cross stitch over one thread. It's so delicate and I really love it!!!! Thank you so much, Moni. :-))

Thank you so much for your nice comments. I really love reading comments. It's great :-))))

Tonight I want to stitch the Lettering and maybe start the Hardanger part. Uhhhh, I'm so nervous when I think of the Hardanger part...

I'm back to Christmas Heirloom Sampler. It's the first Sunday in Advent this weekend and I want to hang it on the wall as soon as possible. I must admit that I'm a bit anxious to do the hardanger part.....

I'm back in stitching mood :-)

I didn't do a single stitch the last 10 days... and I was in fear that the stitching mood won't come back. This happens to me once or twice a year and I don't know why this happens. Does this happen to you as well? Or am I alone with this?

I did some stitching on MTM and that is what it's looking now. I saw that Carol finished Part 2 of MTM. She is so fast and it is looking very good!!!

Tobie posted a pic for me showing the Leisure Arts books that include patterns from Diane Williams of Little House Needleworks. Thank you so much for sharing the pic. I hope to get the chance to buy these books.

Some of Lisa's Birthday pics

Thank you for all your good wishes to Lisa's birthday. :-)
Here are 3 pictures where you can see her unwrapping some of her birthday presents...it was really thrilling for her ;-)

Today is Lisa's 1st birthday!!!!

Wohooo! :-) I can't beleive that she is with us for a whole year now. Time passed by so fast....

She's still in bed.....strange....usually she wakes up between 4.45am and 5.30am. I think she decided that she's a big girl now and big girls don't get up that early. ;-))
I will post some pix of the birthdaygirl later.

Our neighbor comes for breakfast at 9.30am and we will have a nice chatty morning.... She has two children but they are in kindergarten and school. And in the afternoon our family comes to celebrate Lisa's birthday....

So there will be no stitching today....

last year in september I started stitching on the "Hagebutten-ABC" by Acufactum. This year in august I stitched the last letters. And finally I managed to sew the edges yesterday. I like it very much on our table in the hall.

Two more squares and the letters T & U

There wasn't much time for stitching during the day. We went to a flea market and after that we went to Delbrück, a small town near us. All the shops were open (this is not normal on sundays in germany) and music bands were playing. So we had a nice afternoon.

Now I'm going to stitch on Medieval Town Mandala for an hour or so....

It's not much I stitched on MTM yesterday. Hubby and I were so tired that we went to bed at 8PM yesterday! I tried to read in bed but I couldn't keep my eyes open....

Today I'm stitching on Drawn Threads Gameboard Sampler to reach my goal (2 squares per week)

Now that part 11 is done we decided that everybody should to stitch as fast as possible till the hardanger border. And than we do that part together again. December isn't that far away anymore and we want it to be finished then.

Carol, I even stitched a bit on MTM yesterday but not very much....

I went to my running group again yesterday in the evening and I'm so glad I did it... I want to do running seriously again. When I was pregnant with Lisa I stopped running and after her birth I didn't managed to start again. And it will be the easiest way to loose the weight I put on during my pregnancy.

Cathy, I'm looking forward to your first WIP pic :-)

That's a pic I took today of my Gameboard Sampler by Drawn Thread. Cathy I would love to do a SAL with you. I haven't stitched that much that you couldn't catch up with me.

Karen thanks for your nice comment on my Autumn Needleroll start. I saw this Needleroll in your album when browsing the WWW for a better picture of this Needleroll and I fell in love with it :-)

Tonight I can't start part two of MTM...I want to finish part 11 of our Christmas Heirloom SAL first.

I'm sorry for all these different posts but I don't know how to get more than one picture per post using bloggerbot....
And this is the other one I got back from framing it's called Sommerlaune by Der Feine Faden as well. It's in tentstitch and I like it so much.... :-)
This is Kleines Dorf (little village) by Der Feine Faden a german designer. I got it back from framing a few days ago...
Here's the pic of Heart of Ireland by Victoria Sampler one of my birthday gifts for DH. He is half Irish and he loves it :-)
