blog block

Last week was a non creative one. I didn't do any sewing, knitting, stitching, no... nothing at all.
Though I was busy allright! I had my work outside the house, son's birthday, school (which I started last monday) and some household duties. And now I'm stuck here suffering a bit from blogblock. Don't have anything new to share!

So time to take the lid of the box and show you an (very) old w.i.p

w.i.p.

It's an embroidery pattern from germany called "der haustierbaum". I think the correct english translation is: the animals tree.

My embroidery work so far....

I use Schürer embroidery floss for this project. The shops don't sell that brand anymore so I use whatever there is left in the box, and that's enough to get my going for some time!

The only thing I have to do is find some time!!

All that floss is just so exciting, the possibilites!
The project is just beautiful. I can't imagine a whole week without sewing. I would be really cranky.

beautiful embroidery - isn't it nice to have WIPs to fall back on when we are feeling a little uninspired. Can't wait to see the finished product!
