My father has painted our living-room during our vacation, so when we came home I had to clean everything, wash the curtains, re-arrange the furniture etc. So I think I need another vacation... ;)
Before we left, I stitched a little on Victoria Samplers Christmas Village. You can see my progress here.
Ofcourse I brought my stitchings with me to Italy, so I show you what I've done there.
First of all this little house. A few weeks before our vacation I saw this blog, and decided it would be a perfect project to bring along! So I did...
Fabric: 28 ct. Quaker linen "Golden Tan"
And than we came home....
And I found this exciting big envelopes between all the other mail!
The first one was from Nancy. It was the matrass pincushion for the SBEBB-exchange! She did a great job for her first matrass! She also spoiled me with a cute little kalender (with quilts!), some quilting fabric, DMC floss and some ribbon. Nancy, thank you so much for this great exchange!
The second envelop was from Cathy B. It contains the first season (Summer) for the Seasonal Exchange! Cathy stitched me a wonderful bellpull, which I really like! She also sent me great goodies a tin of chocolates (which DS ate already!), a tin of peppermints and two charts of Little House Needleworks. One from my wishlist and the other one alse includes Crescent Colour-threads. Cathy, thank you for this wonderful summer-exchange! I'm looking forward to Autumn already ;)
I also wanted to show something which is not stitching-related. I didn't find any LNS's during my vacation... But in Oberammergau is this GREAT Christmas shop from Käthe Wohlfhart and DH let me go loose over there! Here is what I've bought there:
So, I had a great vacation, but I'm also glad to be back home again. I've over 450 unread blogs in my blogreader... So I think I have to use the delete-button. Sorry, about that!
Thank you for reading this loooong update!
