New start

Actually not one, but two new starts! The first one is one of the new charts I showed you yesterday

This project I decided to stitch on 32 ct taupe lugana with hand-dyed floss Peacock from Carrie's Creation. Too bad I had very little time to stitch because I love this little stitcher.

The second new start... well, it has been on my Bucket List for some time now. As you see on my side bard, I've joined camp NaNoWriMo and actually yesterday I started to write my first novel. It will be a memoir or maybe a novel based on my life stories. I wrote first thirteen hundred words and it felt good.A long time ago, in a different country and in a different language I enjoyed writing essays and short stories. Now, since my English is far away from being perfect acceptable, I'm desperately working on grammar and keep typing... Can I write fifty thousand words by the end of August? We'll see... The saying says "If you think you can - you can, if you think you can not - you are right!" I think I can!

So long my friends,


  1. Your stitching looks lovely! What beautiful floss you chose!

    I admire you that you can write in a new language. That is an amazing talent. Do you think in English now or think in your native language and translate before you write?

  2. lovely start.
    Good luck with the NaNoWriMo! Sounds like a real challenge.

  3. Nice stitching start Evalina. And kudos to you for starting your book. You have some fascinating stories. Just keep going.
