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! :)

It has begun!

This Friday I finally got all the floss from Sharon, the sweet woman who gifted me Sweet Shoppe (and the floss). She had also kindly sent bobbbins :)

Since I wasn't home this Friday, and instead celebrating St. Lucy's Day (a wierd Scandinavian holiday represented by a person in a white dress with a red sash around the waist, and to top it off, a crown with candels on the head) watching movies the entire night.
But as soon Saturday came along I started with the bobbinating!
I finished Sunday morning, and just look at all the lovely colours!

And, of course, I couldn't hold myself for starting right away. yesterday when I went to bed I've reached 1600 stitches, I've never stitched so fast! The chart is really, really fun, and I just can't wait to keep stitching, and honestly that's exactly what I'm going to do right now!

Finally something to show!

It may not be that major of a thing to show you, but in lack of other pictures to share (like my christmas surprise that's going absolutely great and that I just can't wait to show you all) I got this in the mail today! :)
So right now I'm just waiting for the floss, that's on its way from US to me as we speak. Really can't wait to start Sweet Shoppe, it's gonna be amazing, I just know it!

I hope you're all having a great December, full of joy and cheer! My choir (and I of course) had a concert the 7th, it was a little nervous since it was my first performance and all, but it went great and I had so much fun! Next one will be the 27th, so we're rehearsing like crazy :)

I must say that it's really frustrating to work on a piece and being really proud over it and not be able to show you guys in case my man sees it! Gah!
But well, it's going really good. Not today though, since he's been home from work in the morning. But he went away a couple of hours ago (already lost like 4-5 hours of stitching by then). Getting a teeny tiny bit stressed about getting it done til the 24th. (That's when we crazy swedes celebrate christmas and share our gifts).

Well, I've got roughly 2 hours done now, and that's it for today. Oh I just want to share my progress!!
