Old fashioned and new handmade

When I was in Londen with my oldest we found this nice kit to make this old fashioned bag yourself, yesterday I started finding out how it is the best way to do it and I feel like Jane Austen or even more like in the middle ages, so fun..

The first little part I have done, yes, it is very easy all the colors are already on the canvas, so when you are stitching you are in a kind of meditation and can follow you' re mind and get new idears...

And a finish !!!!!!!Yes I am really happy the sampler of l atelier perdu is finished, i really like it very much it was very nice to make it , now it only needs a frame....

I love the candles in the hearts and I imagine my two kids going upstairs in there bedrooms by candlelight....

An update of my stitching project.... at the moment I love everything to do without a sewing machine so not such much quilting at the moment.

I am almost finishes with my Christel Seyfarth shawl

One of the boarders is finished but I didn't like the other boarders, so after reading on Wieke van Keulen's  blog, I decided to start all over again and do it her way

about 800 st a row, so hope you keep you're fingers crossed with me that this will turn out to be the good solution and my beautiful shawl will be finished soon

  1. This is such a lovely post of beautiful things. Firstly, your shawl is stunning, the colours so pretty and I don't think you need to worry. Lovely tapestry in your first photo and yes it would be nice to have lived in the Jane Austen era. Well done for completing your cross-stitch, it will be stunning framed.

  2. So much to see, lovely pictures! The sampler is gorgeous and the little bird stitchery is so pretty! Look forward to seeing your bag finished, I like to do needlepoint and the result will be stunning, I am sure;)
