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!
