A visit to Christmas Town

Hello Everyone!

Hope you're all well:)

Over here in Sweden the snow is melting away and the temperatures are creeping above zero degrees. I have yet to see any spring flowers though, and it seems way too early for Easter in a couple of weeks.

My life has continued to be filled with far too many little things like laundry days, baking (to save money) and precious time with my friends and family. Although some of it have been nice things, I have still felt frustrated that I haven't had time to do other things I enjoy such as following my favorite blogs or stitching on my favorite projects. Therefore I am determined that this week will be devoted to my stitching and blogging, thus also giving me time to relax and de-stress.

This means that I sadly haven't got much stitching progress to show you. I've only worked on Christmas Town (by Emma Congdon). This is where I was when I picked it up last week:

After a few hours stitching here and there over the last seven days I now find myself here:

Some more outlined buildings and the top border of the sky, as well as some more green on the Xmas tree... I did another colour swap though. The beige colour used in the magazine just seemed too dull to me, so I decided to use a more creamy offwhite (see the clock tower). Luckily I didn't have to do too much frogging, and I'm much happier with the new shade. Overall it doesn't feel like much progress, but I really hope to stitch much more on this project in the upcoming weeks:))

Since I haven't got more stitching to show you today, I'll leave you with pics of my precious grey-haired ten-year-old furbaby...

 ....and my other two four-legged troublemakers!

To the right side of my furbabies you can - just about - see some of my (unorganized) crafty stash pile which hopefully will find its way onto a new craft shelf soon - about time I'd say too lol.

Happy Stitching!



  1. You've made great progress on this one - I hope you are able to allow yourself more time to stitch and relax. I love your furbabies x

  2. Great progress and adorable furbabies :)

  3. You made some nice progress on your Christmas Town piece. It's such joyous and bright project. Good idea to dedicate this week to stitching and blogging. Enjoy!

  4. This is such a happy piece.
    I hope you do get that relaxing, stitching time.
    What kind of dog is your ten year old?

    1. He's a lovely mix between German Shepard (50%), Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever and Springer Spaniel:)


Reading your lovely comments truly makes my day, so thank you!
