IHWS October

Hello dear friends and followers,

it has been a while since my last post as I have been away for a few days. Where I have been to and what I did there I will tell you next time.

Last weekend was IHWS (if you do not know what this is click on the bottom on the upper right of this blog) and although I have been busy repairing a fence with DH I managed to get some stitching done. The weather was warm and sunny and so we got our work on the fence done faster than we originally had expected. 

Today it was foggy all day, well, I think we have to get used to it, it is the time of the year that often brings lots of fog, which sometimes last all day. As the highest mountains in our county are not more that 400 m high (yes, it is that flat around Vienna, the alps are in the south-western part of Austria) we have no possibility to "flee" to higher regions above the fog. It sometimes is quite frustrating when the weather forecast says that it is sunny and warm in all other parts of the country and outside your window it is nothing but wet and grey. But no need to complain, on the other hand it is perfect stitching weather! ;-)

So here is last weekend's progress on my "6 Fat Men":

Sunday evening before going to bed
In September I have been working on an exchange piece as well, but I am not able to show it to you yet.

I hope you all have a lovely week, keep on stitching!


Time for a little Christmas stitching

Hello dear friends and followers, how are you out there? Here in Austria it has become quite chilly and it really feels like autum, now that it is October. They say that maybe tomorrow night we might have the first frost, brrr...

So I thought it was time to do a little Christmas stitching:

"Rejoice Bookmark" by Stoney Creek, stitched with the suggested DMC, WDW and Kreinik threads.
Unfortunately I'm not able to photograph the lovely glitter of the snowflakes, it looks really festive.

Happy stitching!
