At first I want to thank all the cross stitchers who stopped by and left their warm birthday greetings and nice comments on my work. I appreciate this and am looking forward to meeting you at my blog again.
It was really hard to find some time for stitching these few days - my birthday, my foot ( I am not so fast now), great weather outside. Walking in the garden I took some pictures of my flowers and some wild ones. I asked my husband if he knows their names and he only could say - "Weeds". Great! I am just preparing to stitch " Don't Let The Weeds" by Fabienne Reilly and I can keep them in mind while working on the project.
I also tried to learn the ABC of Hardanger and for the first project I chose "Be Mine...Valentine" by The Victoria Sampler, a very bright design with sparkling gold and sharp contrast of white and red, and lots of beads.
I used the stitched piece for making a little wood jewel box. While travelling last summer I realized how handy these boxes can be: they do not take much space but help you keep the jewelry or stitching tools well organized.
That is Just Nan " Christmas Rose", I made it last December.
And this is how the box looks inside.
I think I can show you some more things tomorrow.
Happy stitching to everybody and take care.
