Sunday evening

I finished the small stitchery for my toiletry purse and the stitchery for the sewing bag - it took about 2 hours altogether.

As you see I started another NI block and is about half done.
It is time to call it a day - tomorrow is another day!

Today is Fastelavn - the last Sunday before Lent, and 40 days before Easter. Traditionally we have Fastelavn wheat buns with cream then, but since I am not a big cream fan I made wheat buns with saffron and raisins.
Served with Coffee Chocolate - yummy!
I hope there is a wheat bun left for me to enjoy with my lunch coffee tomorrow too :-)

Nice stitchery. I really like all your red and white blocks. The quilt is going to be stunning.

Susan said...

The stitchery is very pretty. I am imagining what all those triangles will make for the insane quilt!

I love either of the buns you mentioned, and I hope there is one left for your lunch tomorrow!

I never thought I'd want to do stitchery. But the time spend here reading your blog makes me want to reconsider... so now I only need to find an easy enough project to start on, and then I need to practise my sewing skills. Your stitcheries are beautiful!

(If anyone has any suggestion as to where to look for a simple how-to on stitches, I would be grateful!)

I love to read your blog and I have two favours to ask of you, if you have time.

Firstly, could you tel me where the pattern came from for the threadcatcher - I have a very close friend who is moving to another country and would like to make one for her as a welcome gift when she arrives there.

Secondly, could you please share with me your family recipe for pate - it looks delicious.

Thank you,

Barbara Johnstone

So glad I found your blog. The stitchery is just beautiful and the buns remind me of those my grandma used to make. Enjoy the day!
