I love Mondays

And it is Monday! And Christmas Eve is just a few days away, and the celebration time will start! I love Christmas!

I had so many plans for yesterday but did not accomplish even half of them... I hermit and stitched for most of the day. I finished Heart's Secret:

And I found perfect fabric for the back. I think I will make a pillow or should I finish it in some other way? Size of the stitching area is 7" by 7".

I was gonna to work on Pirate Santa but instead I started a new piece (bad, bad Evalina!), an ornament:

and now when I'm looking at it I think it would make a lovely biscornu...

When I took off Hear's Secret from q-snaps I had the urge to start something new... For some reason I can't resist empty q-snaps... (some of you think it's a disorder called startitis). Using my will power I resisted from starting a bigger project and I decided to do something small, something what will not take a lot of time to finish so I still can have Pirate Santa done before Christmas.

So long my friends,


  1. haha I'm the same! my empty qsnaps are nagging at me to fill them! I am doing my hermit weekend today.

    Heart's secret is very pretty, I think a small pillow would be perfect for it. :)

  2. I love your Heart's secret, the colors are so good.

    Happy stitching,

    Hugs Yvon.

  3. Love your finish, Evalina. It's beautiful and I think a pillow would be perfect!! Great new start. ;)
