Stitching mojo is getting back!!

A biscornu finish by Olenka's stitches designs. Love it! The second time i had this one stitched. First one, was for a giveaway last a couple of years ago.


Found a few of my Autumn collections, think i have more but couldn't find where i'd put them away during the renovation a couple of years ago.

Finally completed this CCN design. Not sure yet how to finish it off. Thought of framing it or maybe into a pillow.
I heard from a colleague about these books, but i had planned to buy them in dutch version but the shop we went too yesterday, they don't have it complete in Dutch but only in English, honestly i prefer to read books in English but it affects my dutch daily so that is why i do have to read books alternately. Today, my JCS 2012 came in....now what to do first, STITCH or READ???!
















I hope everyone having a good week. Thank you all so much for your continued visits on my blog especially to those who takes the time to leave me a comment. I truly appreciate them all.

What a lovely fall collection! I especially like Blessed Be. Read or stitch? I agree that's a tough decision!

Your autumn ornaments looking superb.
Enjoy the books Mylene, not something I have read.

Your autumn basket looks gorgeous. Enjoy your reading and/or stitching whichever you chose. Love your CCN finish. I have my framed in my hallway but think it would make a nice cushion too.

Lovely biscornu Mylene, the Autumn themed collection looks wonderful.
I wouldn't worry about the books being in English, they aren't going to teach you the kind of words you can use in polite company anyway ;D

Sally said...

Love the biscornu and your Autumn basket is lovely.

Your finished LHN is so pretty. Looking forward to seeing how you finish it off.

Can't wait to get my JCS Christmas mag. I'm hoping my newsagent might have it next week:)

Stitch or read - that's always the question here, too. Now, this year I have been leaning more towards stitching so reading has been a bit on the backburner, but it will soon come forward.
Good to read that you stitching mojo is coming back. This wonderful display of autumn smalls should be a great motivation for you.

Glad to see you stitching again! I love to see your finishes!! I have stitched a couple of the same Fall items and they are in a basket also...great minds! LOL

Cole said...

An exciting choice you have in front of you! If you're anything like me, there will be no stitching once you start those books, I couldn't put them down!! ;o)

Akila said...

Lovely collection of ornaments. Love the colors in CCN, another pretty finish :)

Annette said...

Wauw Mylene,
You done a great job on your Fall Pieces!!
They look great..
I also don't know where my selfmade decorations are.. all on the attic, and we are still renovating that...
Alles in 1 hoek opgestapeld, dus kan nergens bij al meer dan een jaar!!

Do them both.. Stitch while the kids read your the books... lol

Lovely autumny ornaments. Congrads on finishing Home Sweet Home.

Enjoy your books and the magazine.

Angela said...

Love your Autumn collection. If it was me I would stitch but only because I didn't care for this series of books. I felt they were very poorly written and I couldn't move beyond that :)

Maggie said...

Lovely stitching Mylene.
I know there has been a lot of interest in the 50 shades books, not something i have read though.

Have a good weekend x

Congrats on all your finishes. Hoping that things slow down enough for you that you will be able to read & stitch more.

Love the autumn collection. That is my favorite season. Home Sweet Home would look awesome as a pillow.
Good to see you are stitching again.
