Let’s stitch, let’s stitch, lets stitch!


Oh, the weather outside is frightful,

but the fire is so delightful,

And since we’ve no place to go,

Let’s stitch, let’s stitch,  let’s stitch!!!

And that’s what I’ve been doing!

I’ve finished this little one:


It is a pattern from this book which has a lot of lovely ideas:


This is my first block for the “Busy little Christmas elves” project with Melanie und Simone. The stitched blocks are so cute, I’m having a lot of fun stitching them. But I am not going to make as big as the original - though I might change my mind, who knows!….


Stina designed some very pretty blocks for stitching and I had to make some, too! You can use them for a small wall hanging or a pillow or whatever you like.  I thought of scented little cushions (not pincushions this time, unusual, isn’t it?!) and I decided that these hearts should have a girlie look, so here they are, Pretty in Pink, don’t you think?

Thank you, Stina!!! So nice of you to offer this!

My dear friend Renate (no blogger) is having back problems (is this contagious?…) but before that happened she was again so loving and kind and knitted these beautiful socks for me:


I can knit, but with two needles! With five, well that’s the hell of it…But I won’t give up, I’ll give it another try.

Hope you are all sewing to your heart’s content  and drinking a cup of tea, or coffee or hot chocolate!

Hia Suzie I stopped your blog loading part way through before the redirection could go through.

Renate makes gorgeous socks- so snuggly and warm- perfect for the weather you are having.

Great work on Stina's hearts. I plugged them today on my blog. The house wallhanging is so cute.

I think in this weather a hot choc with floating marshmallows is good.

Well, actually yes, I am sipping a very hot herbal tea (Fix Malve Tee from Germany) because I've just come home and I've been up on my feet all day (except for lunch when I sat for 20 minutes, and driving to Germany and back).
I'll be sewing again in three days, when the February holidays begin, can't wait can't wait can't wait !!!
I hope you are feeling much better and that everything is going fine healthwise.
Congrats on your lovely girly cushions, and big big hugs !

What? No pincushions? LOL I like what you did with Stina's hearts, light, fresh and feminine looking.

Ooh, the socks look warm and cozy. I love wooly, warm socks...along with a cup of coffee in one hand and maybe even an oreo in the other..LOL

I see you got the blog hacking fixed! :o) Your stitching is perfection. The elves you, Melanie and Simone are doing are so very cute. What a sweet friend to knit you socks. I'm happy I can manage just one crochet hook!

Wow those socks are awesome and especially nice of Renate to send you some.
