Cross stitches

Go here if you like to do cross stitches. If you click the images, you can take a closer look, lovely inspiration! I didn't try cross stitch for years, but I catch myself looking at this kind of blogs all the time lately. Maybe something for sunny days... I did like to sit in the garden and do cross stitches as a child.

My journal

I always forget these abbreviations, so I thought it would be handy to write them down in my journal.

Forgotten project

I really want 2008 to become the year of finished projects, and look what I stumbled upon: a pair of forgotten mittens I started in ...2000! I found the pattern in Marie Claire Idées, and luckily, I still like them enough to finish them.

Old pictures

In the past week (I think we had the worst weather ever in March, hail and snow and rain), I passed my time with browsing trough old postcards, pictures, letters,...
I found these pictures of my mother when she was young. Pictures like this always make me wonder: why can't I look as glamourous as the women did in the fifties?

Vintage crafting

This is really a treasure chest of pictures! When you compare with the sewing supplies you can buy nowadays...

A happy blog

Bella Dia has a very cheerful blog to look at.

Cute Easter chick.

This tutorial for a crocheted heart is something I want to try!

I love this serie of little felt houses, such an inspiration.

Trying to catch up...

I need patience

Normally, my capelet would have been finished this week, but I ran out of yarn about 5 rows before the end! Frustration!
So I had to order the same yarn, I will have it in about 2 weeks.

In the meantime, I am working on an old quilt. I want to finish this project before I work on something else, but I am very afraid that this is to become the "famous never ending quilt".
