    After I read Veros article about Hornbooks http://verom.over-blog.com/article-1415582.html I pulled out this little item we have since always in our home. I always saw that there is something to put a sheet of paper in, but I didn´t know how and why this...

    I just discovered that my pharmacy is carrying a wide collection of tins. So I had to buy some :-)!! I especially like the little ones, which are about 4,5 x 5,5 cm. I think they would be great for little needle cases. And I´m sure I´ll find a a heart...

    I´m just on page 5 of the Quaker Mystery Sampler, and here´s my progress so far. At the moment I´m not absolutely sure that it was the right decision to stitch a coloured Quaker Sampler ??? Maybe it would look better only one coloured ???!!! I really...

  • Fabric

    20 février 2006 ( #romyaustria )

    Some time ago I ordered a lot of 2", 4" and 5" inch fabric squares. And now I got my order. I think they are really useful for finishing ornaments and other little stitchings. I just "played" with the squares and I discovered that the colours fit perfect...

  • my new box

    15 mars 2006 ( #romyaustria )

    I just bought this box. It´s made only from boiled birch bark. I like the look of this nature product, it´s made without nails and usually used to store bread inside. But I think it can be used for storeing threads or stitching tools too. It´s really...
