Has it really been that long since my last post? So many things have happened in the past 6 weeks. For two weeks now, I have a new full time work. It really keeps me busy and many evenings I am just too tired for any stitching. Though I still did a lot of due date stitching during the past few weeks. I finished the poppy tablecloth and took it with me to Germany where I met my aunt to give it back to her. It looks really beautiful, but it isn't complete yet. My aunt will finished the table cloth with a beautiful lace border. Hopefully I will get some pictures to share with you.
While the Mr. and I were in Germany we visited my family and I dug out some of my old stuff and also some of my parents things. My parents are moving from a big house to a much smaller apartment and can't take everything with them. They still have plenty of beautiful stitchings that my Grandma did and I took a few with me to Finland.
This is the birth sampler my Grandma stitched for me
The fairy was also stitched by my Grandma, but I don't remember for which occasion I got it
next one is a wall hanging that my Grandma stitched for my mother
it is stitched in petit point and so beautiful
take a look at the date
my mom got this one for her Birthday two years before I was born. That makes this bird hanging 36 years old.
Besides those few pictures I also received two big tablecloth that my Grandmother made. One of them is made in white work on linen and the other one is a huge Christmas table cloth including six napkins. Of course they will be only used for very special occasions.
Tomorrow and Sunday I will meet with my friend Virpi and a few others for a small stitching gathering. I started a new SAL during my vacation and I will start two more stitching projects for my kitchen. And of course I will go back to my old 10-hour-rotation to get some of the old UFOs and WIPs done. But more about that in my next post.
