Goodies by post

Hello dear friends and followers,

I have done some stitching lately, but most of it is for an exchange, which means that this project is still to be kept a secret.

To show you some stitching, I browsed through pictures of projects I made before I started this blog. Here is one I really enjoyed stitching:

I made this for the housewarming party of friends and the absolutely loved it. This is no wonder, as I put a lot of different cookies in it, too. ;-) It is a design I took from an older issue of the Stoney Creek Magazine. I love their designs a lot and have many of them on my to-stitch list.

I received a wonderful package from Lisa recently. She had a giveaway on her blog and I was lucky enough to be the proud winner. Since she is a lovely and very generous lady, she also added some extra goodies for me. I felt really spoiled, thank you so much, Lisa!

The weather here is very October-like. We are having a lot of fog every day, but yesterday it lifted and the sun came out. Believe it or not, it got warm enough to work in the garden in a T-shirt and take a nap in the sun, lying in the grass. The color of the leaves is extremely pretty this year, much brighter than usual.

There still are a few wild flowers in bloom.
I hope you all have a wonderful autumn with lots of time for your stitching. Have you started some Christmas projects yet?
