Back from a lovely holiday ... part 2.

The weather changed almost every day of our holiday this summer. 
We had SUN with a lovely blue sky, RAIN with very gray sky, THUNDER with dark sky and OVERCAST with rather pale sky, all even changing by the hour!
Lots of perfect days for all of the stitchery that I brought with me.

Butterfly Garden from block 2, and just a miniblock as part of nine. A real VSP this is :-)
Thought you might like to see the butterfly garden lavendel pot as well; very connected to my stitchery!

Tags-stitchery all done.
I will be finding the fabrics soon,intending to make 3 sweet,small wall-hangings.

Hurrah,all the 23 hearts and 13 snowflakes as well as the two churn dashes are done.
 Looking a wee bit messy here,
but will be perfect when finished as the border for  SCANDINAVIAN CHRISTMAS. Hopefully sewn during this month, but definitely by December 2012 ... LOL ...

So then all TdF friends: this is the final from me on TdF 2012. ( the no 4: the Birdie Stitchery I have shown you before). Thanks Hanne for being a sport arranging the tour this year and of course
 May Britt as well :-) I finished it all by July 22. We didn`t see the final of the Tour of France as we only have a few channels down at the cabin.
Part 3 of my holiday will follow! Till later then, All the best from me :-)

You got a lot done this summer. And you have done so much on the small stitcheries for SC. I have only made two of them so far. So after the market I will have more focus :)

Så mye flott håndsøm, stitchery, du har gjort i ferien! Blir spennende å se alt ferdig sydd og montert også.

The Butterfly stitchery looks very sweet and romantic. Well done with all the hearts and snowflakes of SC!

Så mye fint du har rukket, ikke mye igjen på SC nå.
Har også begynt på Butterfly garden, har ventet 1 år på mønsteret og ante ikke at det var det den het da jeg så et ferdig teppe som jeg likte veldig godt på Quiltegården, blir nok mye blått på meg.

Beautiful work, as always! I'm glad you had such a nice vacation.

Wow, you have been busy! You are such an inspiration with your beautiful work.

Well done Grethe -so much of the hard work is done now with SC and there was an awful lot of it!

The Butterflies are beautiful with your Lavandula Pappilion. :-)

The weather sounds perfect for relaxing and stitching away...and you certainly did manage to get a lot done...so many beautiful colours in your tag stitcheries, gorgeous...

Skal man sy i ferien, er det jo bra at været har vært litt skiftende. Lekre stitcheries.
