Working on the European Bistro cross stitching project at the moment.  I do want to finish it sometime soon since my mum has moved home recently and is saving some space on her living room wall.  I've been working on it on and off for 2 or 3 years now and I came to realize last night that I won't have enough thread of a certain color.
I know Dimensions has their own threads, and color codes, and whatevers, so I've e-mailed them for some extra threads. I got a very nice e-mail back stating they're processing my request but it may take 2 to 3 weeks to get to me (in Belgium).  Well I hope I don't run out of thread before that :).

I'm glad they provide that service.  It wouldn't be the same if I tried to substitute the fibres with some other brand.  And I do intend this project to be perfect and flawless for a change ;). I'll keep you posted.

I'm making this one for my mother, I did switch the Aida fabric for linen, I don't like working on Aida fabric.
Some backstitching left on the left, and than it's time for the last quarter.

Started working on this one about 10 years ago I think... Here's my progress so far :)

So I've finished this Birth Sampler, but the little baby boy is taking his time.  I think he was supposed to be born a couple of days ago so we're all waiting very (im)patiently.  Here is the sampler (minus the name that is)
This is a kit by DMC from the Lickle Ted series. No longer available in shops sadly.  I really loved these designs for new babies.  

So since I've cought the stitching bug, I tackled a long time wip, have no idea how long I've been working on this one :) Might be finished in time for Christmas. Just need to do the backstitching now.
This was a Dimensions Gold Petites kit.  Not sure if it's still available in shops. So maybe next week, I'll have another finish for you all. And who knows, maybe even some crochet :).
