A trip to Europe

Hello my lovely readers!

It has been too long but I did really enjoy having some holidays and not using technology too much. As promised though, I did take some pictures to share with you and I actually did get some crafting done too!

First, I was off to Belfast, where I had a conference for work.

Belfast was very lovely, and I even found a very cute shop that sold home deco and craft supplies, including yarn and fabric! And I even got a free fabric bag, isn’t it cute?

Then I headed over to London to visit one of my good friends. We had high tea and walked around London for a bit before stopping in a pub.

And finally I got to spend some quality time with my family over in the south of France. I tanned next to the pool, went out a lot, drank wine and ate cheese! It was bliss! And I did get some knitting and crochet done too, of course! I will post more about those later next week 😊

I hope you all had a good last few weeks and I will catch up to all your wonderful blogs soon, pinky promise 😊

Gondolas and travel craft

Happy Wednesday!

A few weeks back I showed you some lovely dark blue cotton I bought in Burano, Italy and I was not too sure what to make with it. A few hours browsing Pinterest later, I found this really cool doily pattern that includes gondolas! Considering that Burano is one of the Venitian islands, how perfect is that?


Im pretty excited to make a start on this one, it should turn our lovely. 

During my trip, I also bought a pre marked table centre, all ready to get embroidered, from Prague in Czech Republic. The markings call for very large cross stitches and I hope it turns out good 🙂 the design has roses and leaves, which I think are pretty typical Czech motives, and I’m planning on using 3 different shades of pink and 2-3 different shades of green. 

As always I’ll post more about those two projects as I get some progress done. 

Have you even brought back crafty souvenirs from trips? I’d love to hear about them 🙂
