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:)
