Thank you very much for all your nice comments on Prairie Sampler. I loved reading every single comment....just as always :) comments are so much appreciated.

I was a bit restless last week and couldn't settle on a I started several new !?!?! and put a few stitches in an older project Toccata 2. Here's a pic of it how took it out my WIP-box

and one how it looked when I put it back in there ;)

On friday I got mail from Jennifer my favorite online store. She's so wonderful nice and friendly and her service is phenomenal. I ordered from her when I lived in Germany and I still do it. ;)

She sent me some 32ct grean teal linen fabric (the darker one) and these WDW fibres:

and so I started a new project immediately..... That's how it looks now. But I definetly want to finish this one soon. The colors on this pictures don't do it justice. It is so much brighter in real life....

Last Monday it was Louis Riel day and we had a day off. We went out for a walk and a little bit tobogganing. It was really cold again. The temperatures are going up and down like mad....

....and again I put a few more stitches in the Prairie Sampler.

Derek and Lisa picked me up after work and than we went to get some passport pictures. Why do passport pics always have to look so awful? Is it to make the guys laugh you have to show them to???? They make me always look like a criminal... :) Don't worry, I'm not going to show mine... LOL

A little progress on Prairie Sampler but I have to hurry if I want to be finished with this one before starting something new at the weekend. It's not that I don't like stitching on this one any more (the design is a big fun and stitching with the Belle Soie Silk is great) but I LOVE to start new things and at least I want to finish this one (even better if I get the Lovebird finished by then...) before another newstart.....

I decided which colors to use for Glenna's Hello Neighbor RR and started with a tree. I plan to finish this RR in february and send it immediately to Karen in Australia assuming that is OK for her. I was so often late in the past....and never want to be late again. Not to much to see right now....the big white space is some fabric shining through :)

I have to hurry with Prairie Sampler and the little Lovebird....I've a NEWSTART in my mind.........

I decided to put some stitches in AAFG in the evening. Maybe I can finish it this year ... or is that a little bit to optimistic for me? ;-) We'll see.....
I enjoyed stitching on it very much so I will hopefully get back to it very soon.

While we are having a light snowfall the whole day long, I spent a lot of time on stitching my Prairie Sampler. It is so cozy to sit at the window in the livingroom while the snow is falling down.
Lisa is busy with her legos and drawing pictures and DH is looking for a motorbike on the internet ... I love these lazy sundays :)

I was a bit lazy with my stitching during the last days.... I started to unpack my craftboxes and gave my sewing machine a try. But that's not a lot of fun unless I haven't found all the necessary things like the rulers and the cutter and lots of other things you need. So I've just a very small progress on Midsummer Night Designs freebie to show:
