Thank you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping me to find three kings. Now they are on their way north! I've decided to go with this one:
I'm not so sure about all that black, unless... Oh, I have a whole year to think about it!

Today is my ex's birthday and I have a tradition of buying a present for myself on his birthday, name day etc. (I love celebrations!!!) I was stuck at home but nothing can stop me from shopping. Look what I bought:

A lovely sampler 'Honest, kind and good' by Stitcher's Hands and from Victoria Sampler 'Friends in Stitches' designed by Thea with the accessory pack and brass bellpull.

'Honest, kind and good' I will stitch with silk floss, same colors as in 'Songs of the Season'.

Now it is time for some evening stitching.

So long my friends,


  1. I just stitched this one. It uses black- brown 3371 DMC. I LIKED IT,

  2. You have a good eye for picking beautiful designs.

    I love what you wrote on Marlene's post about the vibe you could feel. I feel it too and it surrounds me with inspiration and sisterhood.

  3. I guess, by definition, your ex wasn't honest kind or good. It's my b'day today too. However, I can hold my head up high. Except for that time I ...! haha.

  4. Great choices for all your new designs. I love the idea of treating yourself on an ex's special days. Enjoy your stitching.

  5. So glad you stopped by last night, because it gave me a chance to find you! BEAUTIFUL work - I've always admired the cross-stitchers, for they have the better eyes (and more patience) than I! Congratulations on your birthday gift to yourself...GREAT idea on that one - lots more looking around to do here - glad you're joining in on Vicki's Grow Your Blog Party. Happy Tuesday - Tanya

  6. What a wonderful idea to give yourself a gift on the ex's birthday! Honest, Kind and Good will look so pretty using the same floss as Songs of the Season. I am looking forward to seeing it!

  7. Haha I love your theory of "its your birthday but I buy something for ME!!!" Perhaps I should take that idea on board...

  8. Красиво,три царя хороши!Чудесные покупки,восторг!

  9. Hi Evalina-
    I have just added your beautiful blog to my Grow Your Blog party -- I look forward to your special post on the 19th. Latest updates are on my blog -- see you at the party!

    Your kitty zoom zoom is just beautiful!

    So nice to meet you!

  10. Ohhh you bought some very nice patterns !!

  11. I love that you buy yourself something on your Ex's b-day. I think that is awesome! :)

    Thanks for dropping by my place...I've added you to the blogs I follow....looking forward to seeing all your lovely stitching in 2013. :)

  12. I love that idea..his birthday...your presents. Never was comfortable with doing Hardanger stitching..afraid of cutting the wrong string and screwing up the whole thing..hope you have luck with it.

  13. Hi Evalina, thanks for stopping by and I am now following you as well. I think it is great that you treat yourself on your ex's birthday. ;-) xo
