The CHRISTMAS TREE is back again, it gives me always a strange feeling christmas in a tropical country. Well christmas decorations are big in Rio. I bought a while ago a spanish magazine and there I found a patron of a skirt for the tree. It was a bit of sewing but, I think it looks nice and I don't see the cables of the lights anymore.

A Weekend Madrid with my daughter, it was wonderful, we found a great shop;
nice shoes, bags and suitcases etc. I bought a very practical bag with lots of zippers and compartments, so I can carry more and more with me. ( Poor shoulder )
I was in love with this lovely teacup purse, they were in all kind of different colours.

The Christmas Angel is framed after some hick ups I took her home.
unfortunately I have to bring her back again, because it is still not good. Well I am happy with the colours of the passe partout and the frame.

This is my new project, I started at the beginning of the month June. When I lived in Aberdeen I fell in love with this angel. I saw her in my favourite cross stitch magazine THE CROSS STITCHER.
The design is from JOAN ELIOTT, the threads are from DMC and its on AIDA 14 with a little sparkle.
I bet I gonna do a lot of cross stitching these days.

I cross stitched these lovely japanese ladies for my daughter Myrthe.
I was at that time living in two countries Scotland -Aberdeen and Norway - Stavanger. In both countries the weather can be abysmal so, I had a good excuse to stay at home and do some cross stitching.

BABY GABRIELLA Had her first birthday recently, I made a pillow and from the leftover fabric a little bear and heart. I got the design from my favourite magazine the Cross stitcher. Her mama was very pleased to get something different and personal, because the little girl got so many toys as presents.
