birthday countdown

Only 3 more days! I love to celebrate and a birthday is an excellent time to do it. This year I treat myself with Kobo, an ebook reader. I wasn't sure how I will like it but , to my biggest surprise, I not just like it... I LOVE IT!

Last year I received many beautiful gifts from my stitching friends. Through out the year I looked at them very often but for some reason I stitched only 1 little projects... I decided to fix that and after stitching for a little while my Lighthouse Island (not much really and not enough to take a picture) I decided to go ahead and start The Provence. I have no idea what Provence is (can someone enlighten me???) but I love the chart. It is design by one of my favorite designers, Sandy Orton.

This piece was on my wish list for a long time, it came to me a year ago and finally went on frames. I screw up badly my stitches...

had to frog them out. I stitched it again and now it looks much better.


  1. I hope you have a wonderful birthday Evalina!!! Your new start looks amazing!

  2. Happy Birthday with Many Happy Returns.
    Be always in stitches.

  3. What a pretty project. I hope you have a great birthday!

  4. I hope you have another fantastic birthday! Nice giftie for yourself, too. And a beautiful new project!

  5. I'm looking forward to your birthday and hope you do another video for us so we can all share in your excitement.

    I too have the kit for The Provence and have been thinking about starting it, maybe now I will stitch it along with you as soon as I finsih AQC.

  6. The only Provence I know is the French province that's near Italy. It's one of those Mediterranean places that people around here talk about retiring to.
    This Provence is lovely! You're off to a nice start.

  7. Your stitching on Provence is beautiful. I have no idea what it means though...
