It seems like ages since the last time I left a message here.

We’ve been through hard times…fears, anxiety, tears, prayers,  hope…Life asks you how strong you are, how strong you can be and how much you can bear…And then, somewhere deep inside,  you find strength,  you carry on. Each day is a little step forward, and it becomes clear that this strength can only come from faith and love. As long as it is there, you know you will go on.

The healing process is not over,  a lot of physiotherapy is still needed, but we are thankful that he is doing fine and recovering well. With love and patience he will soon be able to move his arm again.

I thank each of you for the kind comments you have left, it is so important to know you care.

Thanks for all the  encouraging,  lovely and friendly emails you’ve sent me,  for the beautiful messages and pictures,  they touched my heart and made me smile with a silent tear that insisted to drop…Heartfelt thanks, dear friends.


I hardly had the time to enjoy some moments in the garden. Everything is growing wildly!…

I think I’d better say, with its “own” charm. I prefer to look only at the flowers, they are a real joy for the eyes, like this Fuchsia. I love its bright color:



Let me introduce you to “Mozart”, these lovely little pink roses. They burst with color and growth in the garden! You just have to watch out for its thorns, they really hurt!


Our cherry tree,  the only one we have and love.


The first cherries,  I love its red color!


Dear red cherry,  I’m in love with you!



Last Friday I sent a little parcel to my Pincushion Swap Partner.

I guess one can see that the red color caught me…Fortunately it is one of her favorite colors, too, so I hope she will like this little house pincushion I made for her:


When you lift the roof you have place for pins:


And the other side you have place for your sewing needles:


Here are some of the things I’ve sent her, the rest I hope she will show on her blog!


Summer vacations are about to begin.

I hope I will find some time to visit you more often and maybe I will also find time (between appointments and chores …) to go to my sewing room and  finish some projects ( or start new ones ?!..).  We will see…

Blessings to all of you!

Wishing you a lovely week,

signature Suzie

Liebe Suzie, it's so good to hear from you again! Things must be going better now, and we'll be there for you all the time.
My experience is that you will find the strength to face difficulties when the difficulties come to you. You are stronger than you believed before life changed.

Suzie, what a lovely post to read with such wonderful news. I am so very pleased to hear that things are slowly improving for your husband and peace is starting to rein over the family. Blessings and hugs for the times ahead, stay strong and know that we are all thinking of you.

Oh Suzie.. it is so good to see your busy little hands working again and your beautiful products. I'm glad to hear our hubby is on the road to recovery. You are so strong for him.

The cherries are simply wonderful.. red is a fabulous and cheerful color. Love your birdhouse pincushion!

I am so glad to hear that he is recovering although it is in a slow pace. Here in Iceland Fuschia is called "Christ´s blood-drop"
Jantine said…
I am so glad reading everything is fine, no, going better and there are improvements as I think I can imagine a little what you went through as my father in law had the same six years ago. And he did not improve, so He has answered your prayers! (Ours too, but different then we thought He should).
Love the house and really wonder whom you sent it too. Please let us know!
Carole said…
