Travelling bag.

A couple of months ago I sent my stitching to my friend R. She made me a beautiful travelling bag. It looks fantastic don't you think? I'm going to take it with me to China.

So this is my last post because I'm going on vacation for 19 days. We are going to visit the following cities: Shanghai, Suzhou, Yichang, Chongqing, Dazu, Emei Shan, Chengdu, Xi'an, Beijing. I don't know if it's possible to update my blog when I'm in China. Love to see you all again at the end of May and thanks for your sweet comments.

Little gifts

Every day there is more colours in the garden. The camellia blooms side by side with the rhododendron. What a colours! I admire them today when I'm going into the garden for making the pictures. During my vacation in Zweden I stitched these little pieces with the Blomstergarns from Haandarbejdets Fremme. The charts are from the designer Gerda Bengtsson. Today I decide to sew them as pincushions and fill them with a little bit lavender. Little gifts for my friends.

Springtime and Easter.

For me the springtime is the most wonderful time of the season. The garden is blooming and every day there is enough to enjoy. The last days the sun shines and there is some explosion of colours.
I used my time for gardening and shopping for our vacation. There was not so much time left for stitching, although I have finished the Easter Parade from BBD. It's stitched on Zweigart linen using the recommended threads.
My friend R. surprised me with the bunny pincushion. Isn't cute?
Thanks for stopping by and wish you all a Happy Easter!

Traveling stitcher.

Last week I finished this lovely design from Little House Needleworks. It's stitched on 32 count linen using the recommended threads. I chose not to stitch some part of the charts like my initials, heart and year. I'm going to make a stitcher bag with a scissorfob, a floss tag and a needlebook. Because of my preparation to China I don't have enough time to sew it. Someday you will find the stitcher bag on my blog.
