Happy Birthday me!

Today I'm turning 23!
We celebrated this last Friday though, so today hasn't really felt that special. :(
I've been home alone, watching a movie and then I went for a walk with my mom's dog.
For some unknown reason I brought my camera with me. I'm actually an educated photographer, but have lost interest for the last couple of years. But, anyway, I brought my camera for the first time in like.. years! And I found a new friend!

So I guess, in a way, this day actually did turn out to be pretty special anyway.. :)
I hope that you're all having a great day out there!!

Long time no see and a little update with that, please

Hi my lovely friends!
There's been months since the last update and I'm so so sorry about that.
Things got really stressful with the move (suddenly someone wanted to move in to our appartment as soon as possible, so we decided to move within just a couple of days) and it really got the best of me for weeks to come.
But now we've lived in our new place for about a month and a half and it's fantastic!
Sadly my will to stitch has been running low, but for a couple of weeks ago I got a comment from Kaelyn who's one of my followers here. And I just couldn't get it into my brain that you guys may actually miss me and remember me at all.
So I started stitching, and stitching, and stitching. And now I've managed to finish page four on Sweet Shoppe!!
It's turning out so adorable with all the colors, and I just can't wait for it to be all done, but after the page finish I decided to switch to Foxglove Ball for a while. :)

I've also been thinking about starting yet another HAED, not so monstrous this time though.. :) 
I'm thinking about starting it on 20ct, my other two is getting stitched on 25ct.
But I want to know from you, if you've ever stitched on 20ct, if you think 1x1 or 2x1 is the way to go? 

I hope we'll see eachother soon! I promise I won't be long this time <3

Time for some good news!

Hi ! :)
So, I've got some good news for you! Or, mostly for me, but I'm just eager to share!
First off, I finished the second page on Sweet Shoppe! It is just getting more and more gorgeous and I just want it finished and up on my wall right now!!

Here's what I've done so far

And on to the next good news: We're moving!
Me and my hubby moved from his hometown to my hometown for about five months ago. And ended up with bad neighbours. Or not bad, but more ignorant. They listen to music veeery loud (our floor is shaking. And our furniture. And so on) And even though we've told them a couple of times they haven't even tried to do anything about the bass, that's the most of the problem.
Aaaanyway, my father is a plumber and has his own company, and above them there's a biiig apartment that just got free for rent. So we're moving there.
It's an amazing flat; no neighbours, one balcony and one terrace with a small piece of lawn and everything!! Can't wait to move there... So so happy!
I'll post pictures as soon as I get a few worth showing, I mostly have blurry ones on my cellphone. :)

Page 1 - DONE!

The time has come! The first page is yet again finished, and this time I can carry on to the second without any complications.. :)

It's been pretty hard, haven't really felt the same need to stitch as I do when I enjoy it. But the feeling's coming back now that I'm finally going to see something new appear on the fabric!

You are my sunshine..

At last I've been having enough time to sit down by the computer and share this with you!
It's been a lot to do and my finger's been itching to finally press "Publish" and show you what I've been working on this last month :D


This is it! I found the chart on Etsy, and it was so fun to stitch! There's two more in the collection (of course the verse has to be complete!) and I can't wait to stitch them as well. But for now, it's Sweet Shoppe that's taking the time, since I've started over with it, I've done 1200 stitches, it just takes so much time when you have to do it a second time..

Christmas misfortune?

Ugh. Woke up today and realized that I've been stitching Sweet Shoppe the wrong way.. I've been stitching the short side. And that's too short. And I just finished the first page. 
So that's cut off now, and I've started from the beginning again. So frustrating.. :(

Fast stitching

Hi everyone!
So these days has just rushed by so fast! And so has my stitching!!
I've managed to reach 4000 stitches now, and these last two days I've only done about a hundred because of baking and shopping for christmas presents :D

Today I picked up my hubby's present since I've had it framed. It's so beautiful, and in just a few days I will be able to show you all! Really looking forward to it! :)
