As announced I got my Sampler Gameboard out of the WIP-pile and made a little progress. I'm so happy that Cathy is stitching the SAL with me. So I will really get it finished someday.... Posted by Picasa

And today I put the last stitches in a gift for someone who for sure doesn't read my blog :-) It's a bookmark from the Told in a Garden Bookmark Collection. I love the Told in a Garden Designs and I have a lot of them in my To-Do-pile but this little bookmark is the first I really stitched....

I'm sorry for not commenting on your blogs....and there are still some emails waiting to be written but I'm a bit busy at the moment. Please don't be angry with me!!!

MTM part 5 HALF DONE!!!!

I've finished the second corner on MTM :-)))) Unfortunately the month is nearly over and I stitched only half of part 5 :-(

While Manuela and Margret were here on saturday Manuela and I stitched on Cahterine Agnes. Until Manuela left on sunday I stitched 4 and a half spots. They are very exciting to stitch :-)

This night it started snowing again ( the last days we had around 6 to 8 degrees Celsius so it was nearly spring)
That's the view from my computer window 2 hours ago:

Again, I didn't stitch on Sunday the Sampler Gameboard SAL with Cathy, so I'm going to stitch on this one today.... Cathy, did you stitch yesterday????

I found out that AnneS received her little belate birthday gift....and I'm so happy that she likes it and as I always fear, that it didn't get lost in the mail..... Of course Anne's email got stuck in my spamfile :-( so she will receive her answer today.

It was a nice break from MTM to do page 3 of the Quaker Sampler...but I will hurry back to MTM now. I'm know that I will not finish part 5 but I still hope to get 3 corners done till the end of this month. Please, keep your fingers crossed for me. On saturday Margret and Manuela are going to visit me and Manuela want me to do a little Catherine Agnes SAL on saturday while chatting. So I will have another nice time out from MTM :-)

I made a nice progress on MTM today :-) I'm so happy about this... I hope to finish the corner this week. I want to stitch the next page of the Quakersampler now and return to MTM after that.

This weekend I signed up for the february Stitch-A-Thon with the Friends Gather BB. This is where I started:

and this is all I did :-((((

On friday I met to stitching friends, Manuela and Margret. We had a lot of fun :-) and when I came back home at night I was too tired to stitch. On saturday I stitched nearly as much as you see now and than I realized that I made an error in the beginning. So I ripped it all off again and put it away. Then on sunday I took it out again but I was still so angry that I had to rip it all that I had no fun with this and so that's all I stitched :-(

Nathalie my adoptee from the Stitching Bloggers Exchange BB emailed me that she received the birthdaygift I sent her. This is what I stitched for her, Petite Exemplary No.2 by EEF

Today I took out my Sampler Gameboard because yesterday was SAL-day with Cathy. 2 more squares :-) Can't wait to see Cathy's progress pic....

I was busy yesterday and finished page 2 of Martina's Quaker Sampler Mystery. I really love this one. It will be awesome when finished ;-) but it's a long way to go.......

WOHOOOOOO! Got it! The first corner is completed :-)

Tuesday, February 14, 2006

It's time to go to bed now and there are still 8 algerian eyelets left to be stitched... :-( It took much more time to stitch them as I thought. I'll do them tomorrow morning and I'll post a pic immediately ;-)
This is a picture of how far I got my MTM yesterday. At the moment it seems as if I can get it managed to finish the first corner tonight! :-)) .....but we will see.....

And again not much stitching time for me. I don't know why there is few spare time for me the last weeks... This is my progress on Saturday.

On sunday I took out my Gameboard Sampler for the sunday SAL with Cathy.....but there was even less stitching time for me than on saturday :-((( I only stitched a few more letters on the top border.

And now I 'm back stitching on MTM - no chance to catch up to Carol :-( Hei Carol, you did a great job on yours :-))))

I'm so thrilled!!!!! I received this wonderful Valentines gift from Outi. She's my adopter at the Stitching Bloggers Exchange BB. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I love it so much. Look, there are some Lingonberry scenting beauty products like shampoo and bodylotion etc. 2 very lovely pink fabrics. 4 heartcharms, 4 red Swarowsky hearts, a box of pink beads, 1 red variegated DMC floss, 1 red of the new DMC Jewel Effects and 1 GAST Hibiscus. And look on the envelope containing a letter from Outi this sweet (selfmade?) heartstamp.... You spoilt me so much!!! You made my day :-)

Last night I stitched on the Quaker Sampler again. It's such a big fun to stitch this one. Page 2 is half done. But tonight I'm back to Medieval Town Mandala again and I'll try to catch up to Carol again ;-) But she is so much ahead...

Wooohooo! I stitched a bit on the Gameboard Sampler....can you beleive it, Cathy? :-)) Half a square and a few letters, not much but better less than nothing.

That's the way Medieval Town Mandala looked when I took it out of my WIP-box yesterday evening...
That and some stitches on little gifts were all my stitching for the past days. I was a bit demotivated because my sewing project last friday wasn't as perfect as I wanted it to be. But after a lot of mulling over I decided to send it to it's recipient....

Friday, February 03, 2006

Page 1 of the Quaker Sampler is completed. Now I'm waiting to receive page 2. This morning I stitched a bit on MTM but when DH came back from work he went for a run with some friends and took Lisa with him. So I grabbed the chance to sew one of the gifts I stitched during the last days. But, of course, I can't post a picture at the moment ;-)

As you see I got my digicam back yesterday :-) Yippppieeee

My start with part 5 of MTM isn't that much as I hoped..... It will take me a long stitchingtime to finish this part.

Still thinking about what to stitch to today. Go on with MTM or do some stitches on the Quaker Sampler....I'm not sure yet...

I made up a list with February Goals. Maybe this will help me to keep up with all my current WIP's. I hope Carol's not angry that I copied this idea from her.....

February Goals
Finish part 5 of Chatelaines Medieval Town Mandala
Work on another part I haven’t finished yet
Finish one Prairie Schooler ornament from A Prairie Christmas
Continue with Drawn Threads Gameboard Sampler SAL on Sundays with Cathy
Continue with von der Wiehenburg Quaker Sampler
Continue with Ilses Christmas ABC
Continue with Catherine Agnes by Indigo Rose
Continue with Eventide Autumn Needleroll
I will not do a Lizzy Kate Block it square this month because I don’t like the March one very much ;-)

Yesterday during daytime I worked again on the Quaker Sampler though I hadn't much sparetime. In the evenings I'm stitching little gifts for some friends having birthday in the next few weeks.
I'm a bit sad not being able to work on the QS again but I got the password for the next part of MTM and will spend todays stitching time on this one (of course except the evening...)
