This & That

It has been a busy week, and I am looking forward to the weekend :-)

This cute little stitchery I sent as a birthday gift to a friend last weekend, together with a small book and some candies  :-)
The design is from Annie Downs, Hatched and Patched, and the frame is from Ikea.

When I have a lot on my plate I still enjoy my morning thread(s) with my early morning tea, and you all know how these threads add up!
Before you know it, something is finished :-)

This Christmas stocking stitchery I started when going to Gothenburg for NQT in May.
I will finish it as I stitched it, one thread at a time, through next week maybe ?

I am prepping hexagons for the weekend, and I can see that I will be busy for a while, doing 54 filler flowers in this colour combination.
Remember the BOM I am working on ?

I am sure I will keep busy through the summer with these + the focus flowers.
54 filler flowers + 40 focus flowers = 94 flowers x 7 hexagons = 658 hexagons.

I know I can not commit myself to do one flower a day, but I can commit myself to enjoy the process and do one thread at a time. Not bad at all :-)

I love the stitcheries! I know what you mean about committing to do so many hexagon flowers per day. It is tough. I enjoy the process too, but have no illusions at how long it will really take.

I really like the framed stitchery you gave your friend. A very nice gift.

Hanne, I love your christmas stocking stitchery. Are you able to tell us who the pattern is by?

Nice gift for a nice friend. Beautiful.
Keep up the hexagons. But don’t count. It takes time to se the lawn grow. Just enjoy.

Du er jammen en flittig "maur" - og så fine broderier du har laget!

Stitcheriet til julestrømpa er nydelig!! BOMen du holder på med blir kjempeflott, og kjenner jeg deg rett er det ikke lenge til den er ferdig:-)

One of my treasured gifts from you is your encouragement to do just a few projects and finishing them before moving on.

While you are enjoying your morning threads and tea remember that on the other side of the world I am doing the same.
