Now I'll rest some days and then I'll work on something totally different.
Okay, something traditional - but no sampler.......!!

I finished the model stitching of my new design "Grandmother's Favourite Letters".

The model is framed, some pictures are taken and the charts should be available in your LNS and OLS in US soon.
The model is stitched on 36 count antique white linen and the stitch count is 239 x 329 stitches and is dedicated to my grandmother Eleonora who was born in 1882.

I just added the framed model on my sampler wall. It's always such a great feeling when a sampler design is finished and I can hang it on my wall. I'm feeling happy and satisfied - and now ............... a new day...........
a new sampler  of course

 It's stitched on 36 count antique white linen with Old Willow Stitchery Threads  First Color Black and some The Gentle Art threads. Hopefully it should be finished the next weeks!

It's dedicated to my grandmother Eleonora born in 1882. I owe her my love for needlework.

First I saw this little hexagons on Vero's blog and have fallen in love with them.
I was reading instructions how to creat them and thought that would be a great project for a beginner to quilting like me.

Not really a good time to beginn a new project, because I have to do a lot of working and model stitching on my new design. So I have tried to resist this little hexagons.

That only worked a few days!
Yesterday, I started to print paper and to try to sew some of this little "hexis"! What a good use for all the fabric I have collected over the years. I'm really new to quilting and sewing, but till now it worked well.

Is there any better time of the year than spring??
And is there any greater artist in the world than nature??
Not for me!
I love spring when everything is growing.
There are only a few days when the the shrub at our entrance is blooming like you can see on the picture. I really enjoy every minute of this time and wish you all a happy spring time!

Whenever I'm on vacation I love visiting old castles, cloisters, etc. I love viewing the old buildings and I always get a lot of inspirations in colors and shapes for my stitching.

There are a lot of historical sights nearby my hometown which I never have visited. Maybe you know - the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

I started with a short trip to a barock abby and want to share with you some pictures I have taken.

I'm storing a lot of old linen on our attic. Mostly old handwoven bed sheets from my grandmother and my great grandmother. This linen is surely more than hundred years old and it's perfect for working old samplers in a higher count on it.
Just I was looking for some linen for a new project and discovered a lot of old embroidered ribbons I didn't know.
They have a funny antique spelling for a lot of clothes, like underwear, stockings, dustcloth, bed jackets, towels, shirts, ..........etc.
I really like them and now I'm looking for an idea to display them.

Finally my new design the "Queen of Birds" is framed and ready for being published. I'm really happy with the framing I love those "tone on tone" look of the colors.

The sampler is stitched on 32 count sand linen with one ply of silk over two linen threads.
The stitch count is 135x135 stitches.
And now?? What will come next??

I just came home from our annual trip to Vienna.
Every year I spend a long "girls weekend" with my two daughters in Vienna.

I love those days! We always have fine dinners, go to  theatres and museums and certainly do a lot of shopping.

Here are some impressions of these eventfull days.
On the picture we are on the top of one of the towers of St. Stephen's Cathedrale, where you have a wonderful view over the city of Vienna.

And there's also an inside view of St. Stephen's Cathedrale and my two daughters infront of it.

We always have so much fun and I'm already looking forward to the next "girls weekend"!
