What's in a box: 3

Well, I want to make a new bag, but somehow I can't get inspired to do it.
So therefore the next 'what's in a box'!

cross stitching sampler

No this is not a box whit letters...it was...

For a while I use it to put the sampler in which I'm working on at the moment. (I must confess there are more boxes with unfinished samplers)

For each child I wanted to make a sampler. The two samplers for the oldest are hanging in our living for years. But the last one....
Anyway I promissed to have it finished before he's grown up and living on his own.

Instead of making a new bag or working at this sampler, I'm handsewing this..

Hallo, via via ben ik op je blog terecht gekomen en ben meteen blijven hangen. Wat een mooie dingen maak je en wat schrijf je daar een leuk over, ook de foto's zijn prachtig. Ik kom dan ook graag nog wat vaker bij je kijken!

Groeten, Hannah

Hahaha, ik zit hier vrolijk te lachen op mijn stoel :) In plaats van aan de andere projecten te werken, toch maar weer aan een ander bezig... Dat doe ik nooit! (Ben even de tel kwijt met hoeveel dingen ik nu bezig ben) grinnik

Oké, het is je vergeven dat je niet doorgaat met borduren, want die laatste plaatjes zijn beeldig!

Ik zit hier zelfs te denken,....

I love it! The quilt is going to be so adorable with the beautiful babushkas!

I'll be so anxious to see your completed matroushka applique quilt.
Those little dolls are so fascinating and adorable. It would be fun to make up litle stories about each of them.

Its so absolutely darling I love it. And the box is so cute, too. I can't wait to see more.

This looks like such a pretty sampler. I hope you will start working on it a little. I sometimes use one day a week for a project that has been sitting around too long. My problem is there are too many projects sitting around too long. :)

Hugs~

Your quilt is gorgeous - and I like the box too. I have a soft spot for boxes and tins.

I would have worked on the quilt as well -- it's going to be adorable!

Maakt niet uit hoeveel projekten je hebt liggen...mag je ook van die mooie dozen en blikken blijven verzamelen...;)

Elly said...

Dat blik is al een plaatje! Tja, erg herkenbaar hoor, met van alles en nog wat bezig zijn! Maar je laatste projekt ziet er wel héél erg leuk uit!
