I MUST Show you...

...THIS SBS block!

G-5 Mariner's Compass

I was very afraid of it... and thought I will never succeeded with it...
but miracles happen;)
some hours... much of pressing... most tiny paperpieces... bucketful of patience and concentration
VOILA!!! There it is!
...I was ready for adding many delighted comments on my SBS journal;)))

My eyes are so sore and blurred like that photo because of those tiny cross-stitches,
but I will do it - till the end.
One big problem is that the evenings are so dark and I'm lack of a good lighting - I mean REALLY good...
But I'm over the half way;)
So better use the daylight
as well as possible
and leave the computer...
... I just wanted to show you that compass...

Until next time;)

Decorating Home and Some Updates

WARNING! A lot of photos...
Hello Everyone
We are still here;)

We haven't been here for a while, because
we have been busy with our new curtains - in the living room, kitchen and bedroom.
Especially the ironing of them is so FUUUUUN - purr,purr!
Our next decoration project will be the renewing of the cushions.
But it's totally the other tale...

Here is the latest blocks of Sylvia's Bridal Sampler.
I had to search more background fabric from my stash. Luckily I found this gorgeous rose print from Makover (blocks K-3 and A-3). The range is Rose Bouquet. Unfortunately I bought it only 1/4 yard and when I tried to buy it more, it was sold out:(

I should have updated Satu's Flower Garden, on Thursday. But somehow time flies SO quick and I have felt little tired in the evenings... But better now or never...

My dear Teddy Redcheck is introducing you my pile of hexagon flowers. There is now 25 pastel flowers... and more is blooming...

Fenix also wanted to show you some
flowers. I let him introduce the latest four with three frosty flakes.

But you see, he is so big that you can't see all the flowers...


I had to ask Fenix to leave and I took a new photo without him.
I'm so sorry, Fenix. I will photo you on the other time, I'll promise.

What else we have done...

A Gardener's Journal block C is still unsewn together.
Girls Day Out blocks 8&9 are really unstitched!!!
Butterfly Garden block 7 is almost done.
Only two miniblocks undone;)
My first Schnibble project 'Paganini' is... just in the beginning.

I'm feeling a bit of pressure, because all these blocks or project should be finished in this month!
IIK!!! What shall I do?
I must focus now.
So I decided...

- focus on GJ and BG
- not even try to finish GDO blocks
- try to sew as far as possible 'Paganini'

Why I decided this way,
it's because
Christmas is coming
I have a lot to do before it...
for example in the next week I'll cross-stitch this secret project.

Tiny stitches with only one strand of DMC.
I surely need a good lighting or spectacles.

Today we prepared the balcony for the winter.
It's looking a bit of naked...
maybe we must supply some conifers or atleast twigs of them.

Have a nice week!

PS. Don't worry, if you don't hear of us in the near future, we are probably working with the secret projects... Shh... helping Santa...

The Simple Woman's Daybook - week 40

FOR TODAY October 10, 2010

Outside my window...

It's 10.10.2010. Our national author Aleksis Kivi was born today - 176 years ago. The flags are flying in honour of him. He was a finnish author, who wrote the first significant novel in finnish language, Seitsemän veljestä in 1870 (English title: Seven Brothers).

I am thinking... of our language. There is no other nation who is speaking finnish... so maybe I am...

thankful for... that I had to learn different languages (swedish, english, german, russian) at the school to understand other people. I think it's important... although I'm not good with them...

I am currently reading... unfortunately not Seven Brothers;)... but the book of amigurumi. Have you heard of them?

These cute little fellows you'll find from the book, Super Cute - 25 Amigurumi Animals written by Annie Obaachan.

I am going... to try to crochet atleast one of them - someday;)

I was listening... (and dancing like a queen) the Gold album of ABBA, while testing

in the kitchen... a new receipt: syksyn kaali-makkarapata
(in english something like - an autumnal pot of cabbage and sausage)

Now it's steaming... I'm a bit of hungry... already...

On my mind... some words from Abba

I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream

I have a dream, a fantasy
To help me through reality
And my destination makes it worth the while
Pushing through the darkness still another mile
I believe in angels...

Noticing that... listening of Abba makes me always singing and humming along them...

Around the house... earlier today

A Few Plans For The Week:

From my camera... a lot of photos today, but perhaps one picture will tell you more than thousands of MY bad english words...
or something like that;)


to you ALL!!!

I'm off to see, whether my dinner is ready...
