On Friday Margret and I visited the Creativa in Dortmund. It's a big craft tradeshow and we spent 6 hours there..... :-) + 2 hours for the way to Dortmund and 2 hours back I was completely beat coming home at 8pm. But it was worth it. I didn't buy a lot but there was much to see and so many new ideas for future projects. One thing I bougt is a new release Papierblumen from Der Feine Faden. And I bought a little piece of 55ct linen to give it a try. I've never stitched on such a fine linen before.

Today I finished reading "Body Double" by Tess Gerritsen I recommend reading this one, it's so thrilling.... After I finished reading I stitched the last cross stitches on the right side and a few of the backstitches but there are still a lot of them left to be done....

Hi Bine! Love that new chart! Thanks for the link to Der Fiene Faden's site too!! It's all in German... do they have any freebies listed there? Your MTM looks wonderful!!! I spent the day in Boston eating out, drinking Beck's beer and then Starbucks coffee... now I am trying to get my head stabilized again to work on MTM - good luck to me, right??? LOL!!!
