When Mdm Samm announced a new embroidery blog hop, I knew I had to participate! I love embroidery! 
Baby embroidery

This is little shirt a gift for one of my friends who has had a baby recently. I added a personal touch. The pattern was found on Pinterest. On this stitchery board by Julie are so many cute patterns for all sort of occasions.

Last blog hop I talked about searching for a new couch and the need for new pillows. The first couch has arrived and this blog hop was a good reason to start on another pillow.

New couch and a new pillow!

When the embroidery patterns arrived, Nana's chair seemed perfect for this. Adding buttons, some fabrics and a knitting basket, instead of  the mannequin next to the chair. I'm quite pleased with it :)

Thank you Debbie for sharing this pattern with us and thanks to Jane and mdm Samm for hosting and being great cheerleaders this blog hop.

Here are a few snapshots of what I've received from Australia and what I'm working on these days. At a workshop I learned how to make 'quilt stitches' with invisible thread with my sewing machine. I bought a spool of that thread right away. The rainbow fabrics are for the Modern Scrappy Bits Swap and the embroidery is for the Stitch me up blog hop. Both are going to be so much fun!
I did it again...

I started with a few new projects, even a brown one! I told myself over and over again that I didn't need anymore projects going on. I still have my big gray quilt to be hand quilted, but yesterday Aneela Hoey inspired me with her bird embroidery. So I decided to make myself one. Maybe it'll end up in a pillow. I also started to make a bag in red and blue. That's all new to me!

Today I tried canning fruits for the first time. I used this video as an example. I'm very excited and curious too!!
