I'm back...

Finally I can write a new post. I was busy during the past days and I couldn't find the right moment to write something.

I came back home last Tuesday. We had another long weekend (the last one!). The first of May is a holiday here in Italy so we decided to spend some days in a beautiful island of the Tuscan. The island is Isola del Giglio and it's not so far from Florence. I went to this island eight years ago and I fell in love with it. I had been wanting to come back here since I saw it. Finally we came back and I loved it again. There were a lot of flowers, the sea was wonderful and I really enjoyed myself. We walked a lot and we visited the little towns of the island.
I'm posting some pictures but I'd like to show all the pictures I took.














About cross stitch I can post some pictures. There're progresses and finishes.

Before going to the sea I finished a pattern for charity. I had never posted its progresses because I thought to finish it in few hours but it took me more time.
It's a pattern by Passion Broderie for Savoir Faire Vailly. It's my first heart by Passion Broderie and I think that it turned out lovely. I'd like to stitch one for me too.





I also want to share the April progress on my Celtic Summer. During the past month I worked on the skirt with the blue colours.





During the past week-end I didn't stitch a lot but I've some pictures to share.

I started stitching the monthly Flip-It by Lizzie Kate. It's the May's one and I'm stitching the carrot.





I'm also stitching the monthly Christmas ornament. I changed the kind of fabric. I'll stitch the next four ornaments on linen. The fabric is a 28ct Cashel Linen, Purely Primitive by Silkweaver.





Finally I finished a little work for my kitchen.
I found the design on an Italian magazine. I've already used those designs for an apron that I had stitched last year.

Hi Bea,
What lovely finishes! And your photos are gorgeous--I am envious of such lovely weekends!!!! Sorry I haven't been by lately--not much computer or stitching time, but I hope that is changing now! Your Be My Love is wonderful, by the way. I am itching to start something by CHS!!!
