The past few weeks I've had some days that I really haven't felt like stitching at all but then on some days, luckily I have:)
I've mainly done my wonderful Chatelaine, I'm still in love with the design:) Although I can't continue it as much as I would like to, it seems that when I ordered the thread, I didn't get one Needlepoint silk and also instead of one pale blue/turquoise dinky dyes silk I got a completely wrong one, a light pink one...Why didn't I check the colours before?.... I've placed an order at the Stitching bits and bobs but as the order once again has something they are out of stock, it will take a while to get here...

Then I've also done one small childish thing, a "Nintje", it was a kit I got from the fleamarket. A cutie!
The third pic is a new Wip, it's a double Dutch sampler by Sampler Cove designs featured in the the Gift of Cross Stitching magazine last summer. I've had the fabric (36 count) and the thread (Gloriana silks) for a long time. AS it's 36 count, it's going really slowly.

That's it for now:)
(While writing this I'm listening the new cd "Terra" by the portuguese fado singer Mariza, it has some beautiful songs on it...)

The past few days I've concentrated on my Chatelaine, my lovely lovely Chatelaine...I really love the design and I love stitching it... I'm doing parts two and three, I've done most of the parts one and two, just the special stitches and the beads are missing.
And I love the flowers, after I stitched them I even thought I should just stop and frame it as it is:)
