It´s spring time and in our garden the first trees are flowering. I absolutely love this season when the garden becomes colored and everything starts to grow.

I found some time to stitch on my PS spring samplers. And here you see to top of the first of the three samplers.

Looks like my PS samplers are growing too. And it looks like I became addicted to cross stitch again :-)!

When I pulled out my stitching look I found Indigo Rose Catherine Agnes which I finished last year. I totally forget about it. I had an old frame in my stash which fits exactely.

Now it`s framed and I have a wonderful place to hang this sampler.

And.........now I`m in the mood for starting another Indigo Rose design. Those specialty stitches are really gorgeous and look so exquisite. Looks like I´m seriously back to stitching :-)!!

It took some time to decide with which project I´ll start stitching again. Nearly I was on the way to start a new WIP, but after I pulled out my tons of old WIPs I decided to try to do some progress on this Prairie Schooler design. I think a "simple cross stitch design" is the right for the moment.

This are the PS spring samplers stitched on one piece of linen. I think it will become a lovely pillow when it will be finished. No idea when this will be and how long it will take.

I started it years ago, but I always loved this samplers

Thank you so much for your postings, and your kind comments on my coming back, ladies!

I was so happy to read all those posts from my dear "old" and some "new" friends!! I really have a feeling like coming back home to friends!!!

I have to visit now all those blogs and albums ( I only did a short view),  and I saw so much beautiful things. I´m really not up to date at the moment, but I think this will change soon!!

And .........I have to tell you, after viewing all your beautiful work, I got the feeling to pull out one of my WIPs. You really motivated me on this!! Let´s see, looks like I´ll come back to stitching soon too!!!

Thank you again!!

Dear friends,

I have no idea if there is already someone who read this blog????

I know I haven’t updated it since a long time so I don’t know if  some of my “old friends” are still here??

I really missed all my dear stitching friends all over the world , ......but I haven’t touched a stitching needle since my last post.

It slowly will become a year that I did a brake from stitching and blogging, so now a little about myself and my last year. I really got the feeling that my addicting to stitching overwhelmed my life and my family wasn’t happy with this situation too. I really spent a lot of my free time with stitching. And I really have to say that I forgot a little about other things of life.

 So from that moment I didn’t touch a needle anymore. I never thought that this will work after some years of absolutely stitching addiction.

But I really felt well, I have to say, I did a lot of other activities, like sport and meetings with friends……..etc. So by the way I lost about 10 kilos the last year (now I´m happy Jback to 60 kg), and I became more and more active J!! So that was a little about my last months without blogging :-).

 But since I was a little girl, I always loved to do some craft. And now when I was watching TV I was looking for something to do with my hands J!! So some month ago I started knitting again.

 As I´m particular about my clothes J, I started to knit a  jacket for our traditional costumes which becomes more and more popular the last time. So I knew I can wear it for years and not only for one or two years like the modern jackets.

 So I’ll show you my first finished knitting project. And I started another jacket some weeks ago. I promised myself that I only start one at a time. I don’t want to become 20 knitting WIPs, like my stitching WIPs J!!! But let us see how this will work J!! I carefully kept all my stitching WIPs, my tons of exclusive patterns and my silk, threads and fabric. Maybe some day I’ll come back to stitching again!

 But now some pictures of my jacket. It’s knitted with pure sheep’s wool.

The front

At the back I did a little wrap

 

 And here´s a detail of the wrap on the back

 

 So maybe this was the beginning of a new blogging time :-)!! Let us see :-)!

But I have to say it´s really hard to write in English and to try to use all the tools of the blog again :-)!! I really forgot a lot of them

So I have to think if I´ll continue to write in English, maybe nobody is interested to read about this?? Or maybe I´ll start a new blog?? Have to think about it...???

 

 But I have to say, It´s really funny to blog again :-)!!

Hello dear stitching friends!!

Maybe you are wondering why I haven´t updated my blog since several days????!!!!

It´s because I havn´t toutched a needle since some weeks! I don´t know why???, but it looks like I have a little stitching "burn out"??!!! Life is busy (as always) but usually, I always found a little stitching time. So I know it´s not only this.

So maybe I hope this will change soon, and I hope you will not forget me totally!!!!

I always loved to get your stitching friendship!!!

In March I started a little Ornament SAL with Paula and Su 

It´s really funny to choose one seasonal ornament a month and (hopefully) to stitch and to finish it. For May I started an Assisi Medaillon. It´s stitched with DMC linen thread. It´s the first time I stitch with linen thread and I really like the look of it.

We created an online album with our ornaments Ornament SAL and I hope soon there are more pictures to view.

Maybe somebody want to join us?? It´s really funny to have at least one finish a month :-)!!

Okay, I think slowly I become totally spoiled with my packages :-)!!!

Today I received my exchange for the Sampler Lady Exchange at the Legacy BB. Chris stitched for me the most wonderful scissors keeper. It`s perfectly stitched on (40count linen, isn´t it Chris??) and the finishing is absolutely stunning. And I got another beautiful Ginger scissors.

I´m really, really love it!! What a wonderful piece for my collection!! Thank you so much Chris!!

Today I found these beautiful Thread Rings in my mail. Aren´t they gorgeous??? I always was looking for  special thread rings, but it looks like they are not available anywhere.

These rings are made from mother of pearls, the outside is 3/4" wide and there are 10 in a package.

It´s the newest product from www.KelmscottDesigns.com and just I´m thinking about for which of my next projects I´ll use it. Maybe a huswif or a thread keeper..............??? Anyway I think they will look gorgeous and special!!
