Busy summer and a fancy finish,,,

Hello Everyone!
 I am having a really busy summer,  so I didnt get to my stiching projects lately, I dint event have time to visit blogger either....
In had holiday in July and I spent some day at my parents in my birth city. It was really nice in there, and I could finally finish my Teddy-bear cushion project. My mother helped me a littlebit, cause I unfortunately cant use the sewing machine, but the design was absolutely my idea. It was a present for my boyfriend, and he really liked it:)

Well you can see my first project absolutely finished:

In July I also had a wonderful holiday, we spent some days wondering around Turkey with my boyfriend and with some friends. We really saw amazing sights:

These were the traventines in Pamukkale, my absolute favourite:)
But we were also at the incredible peaks of Cappadocia too:

And of course we had to see the beautiful sights in Istanbul too, I really enjoyed Topkapi Saray:

I really loved the blue tiles everywere. Since my really young age blue is my favourite colour, and I love watching blue tiles, In May I spent 2 weeks in the Netherlands, as an exchange work practical, I really loved the sights there and of course the beautiful blue Delft type tiles and typical dutch motifs:)

Well now, all  my hoidays are over, and I am reaaaally very busy at work. Many of my collegues are on holiday now, so I am having 8 times a 24 hour shifts in this month and usually on weekends,,, I am also very tired now, cause yesterday I had a shift and tomorrow I have one too, but I cant sleep cause my "dear" neighbour is renovating the flat next to me the whole day and it is really noisy....:P
Well I hope soon I will have some free time again to do some creative works!!:)
Have a nice summer!

Greetings, Jucó

Drum rolls please, and lets see, who is the winner of my giveaway:

Hello dear Blogger Friends:)

Well, this was my first ever giveaway, and it was really so much fun to organize it. I was really eager to know who the winner will be! Iwish I could send a small surprise to all of you! I think next time I will make a give-away with more winners:)
But I think already everyone is excited to see the winners name!
 As there weren't so many participants of my giveaway, I used the classic way, I worte everyone's name on a paperblock sheet, of course, those one's who had 2 chances, had 2  sheets with their name on it. I mixed the papers in the box, and I asked our little new Teddybear friend to help me to choose the winner:

And the winner is:

Congratulations jodyr16!
Please write me an email to with your name and adress, so I can post your presents:)
Well thank for all the participants, and happy stiching to all of my blogger friends:)

I am back

Hello my Dear Blogger Friends!

Well it was a really long-long time ago since I wrote here....
My life is really busy, so I didnt have much time to stitch or do any creative things, but I always try to visit my favourite blogs, and see whats happening. Your nice works really inspire me to do some stiching or other creative stuff, whren I have the opportunity.

I wanna show you my latest work:) Everyone knows by now, that I love Teddybears:) So first time in my life I tried to make an own Teddybear, and you can see the result:)

 Isn't he cute?? He is our new little friend at home, actually it was a birthday present for my boyfriend not to be soo lonely when I a have a lot of night shifts at the hospital.:) Of course he got other presents too, but I also wanted to give something special:)

Well my stiching projects progressing slowly. I still couldnt finish Johanna's present,  but hopefully it will be ready soon. As it is a surprise, I will show it to you when I gave it to Johanna:)

I am still working hard on my wolves picture I got from Virpi last year. I think it is a really difficult work, but I cant wait it to be ready:):)
I show you my progress of the pitcture, but it is really far away from beeing ready....

In case you dont remember, that is the original pitcure:

If the picture will be ready I wanna frame it and put on the wall:)

Well it seems to be, that my blog will be soon 1 year old, so I am planning to organize a giveaway in here:)
Tomorrow I will go shopping some surprises, and soon I will post about giveaway rules:)

And this is my first happy dancing...:)

Dear Blogger Friends!
I am here again. I didnt wrote here for a while, the reason is that in July I was on holiday by relatives, and couldnt use internet, and August is such a busy mont for me, I am working day and night,,,
But I dint give up stitching, I am working on many projects right now:)
I have finished my Teddy bear love sign project in July, so here is  it....:(drumrolls please...:))

Well it just needs the finishing to become a beautiful cushion. I already bought a dark red material:)) and my mom got a sewing machine for her birthday,I cant wait to try it. (Anyway I never used a sewing machine before, so it sounds like a big adventure:)))

I also started some new projects. For example I am stitching the wolves picture right now, which I won from Virpi's giveaway. I really enjoy it,I have only done about 500 stiches from the approximately 20000 ones, so I will show you my progress next time , when it will be worth to see:)

I am also stiching some surprise for my friends little daughter , Johanna, I will show you the picture when it will be ready:) I was having a lot of trouble with the material, because the part you can stitch is not big enough,,,so I was searching for many-many charts till I found a suitable one.
I also bought a DMC chartbook with babies characters, it is super awesome, the caracters are really sweet on it:)

During my holiday I found a shop, where I can buy foreign cross stitching magazines:) I was really happy, cause I thought those are not awailable in my country...They are quite expensive in here, but I couldnt resist to buy one:D:D
At last I chose an issue of Cross stich crazy, I loved the Margaret Sherry charts in it, Margaret Sherry is one of my favourite designer:D But somehow it seemed to me that there are to  many talking and advertising in that magazine, maybe I could have beared more charts in it:)))
Which do you think is the best cross stiching mag? I need some advice :D

I am still focusing on Teddy bears:) I found a cool chartbook of Zweigart with great charts of Teddybears, I am gonna make towels with Initial letters for my family members as a Christmas present:)))))

Hmm, I still love flowers, unfortunately my birthday hibiscus didnt survive my holiday, it faded totally away, when I came home,,,:(
but I am having beautiful orchids right now, and I got some new little monsters too:)

Aren't they beautiful?:D:D
Well we are having still great summer weather, I am melting at my workplace, so I really look forward to go to an open-air swimming pool next week, after work:)
Have a nice summer, and happy stitching:)
