Good reads and a sampler

Lately this magazine and book arrived with the post. Such beautiful and happy projects!!!
De afgelopen tijd is dit tijdschrift en boek bij mij op de mat beland. Zoveel moois!

I am working on a stitchery sampler, provided by Bari, which you can get here. It's fun to follow her blog We love French Knots, if you like to stitch! And if you don't like to stitch, it is fun to look at the beautiful projects (o:
Momenteel maak ik de stitchery sampler van Bari. Ze is een heel leuke nieuwe blog begonnen, We love French Knots, met veel moois over stitchery. Daar vind je ook het patroon van de vorige post (o:

French Knots don't like me - they're always a little loose and wonky. But the projects on the website "We Love French Knots" are AMAZING. Some very talented stitchers/embroiders to be sure!

How did you like the Lazy Daisy stitch? I've done it once and did ok - but it was hard to turn and go the other direction.

I got lost deep on the pages of your links, thank you for them! Your new sampler looks very nice.

I shall look forward to seeing some of the projects you make from the book and magazine.
The book has been on my Amazon wishlist for a while now.
You are making good progress with the stitch sampler. I have downloaded it and will start stitching it soon.

Ik heb de stitch sampler maar meteen gedownload, hij is zo leuk. Trouwens die site is geweldig. Mooi tijdschrift en boek heb je weer, maar wat zie ik je hebt het tornmesje van Lynette (kwijl). Mag ik het tijdschrift een keertje inkijken.

Hi Simone!

That issue of Homespun is fabulous isn't it?! There are so many projects I'd like to make including the elf doll and the pretty prim santa!

Yes I agree the Homespun is a great Australian magazine. I stop buying craft magazines these days. I just haven't got time to make anything from them. The only one I subscribe to is Better Home and Garden Australian where DD works as an online craft editor. Have to keep up with what she does :) - Hugs Nat

Greetings from Tunisia! Just stopped by to enjoy your blog while trying to beat the heat. Nothing like a bit of surfing on the internet. Your quilt projects are so fun and what a collection of handbags and purses you have!
best, nadia

Hello Simone,

Great book. French knots make great embroidery pictures. One of the ladies at the local Embroidery guild does beautiful work.
Happy stitching.

I get Aussy Homespun too- it has gorgeous projects in.

Good luck with the stitchery. Looks like fun.
