It seems like ages since the last time I left a message here.

We’ve been through hard times…fears, anxiety, tears, prayers,  hope…Life asks you how strong you are, how strong you can be and how much you can bear…And then, somewhere deep inside,  you find strength,  you carry on. Each day is a little step forward, and it becomes clear that this strength can only come from faith and love. As long as it is there, you know you will go on.

The healing process is not over,  a lot of physiotherapy is still needed, but we are thankful that he is doing fine and recovering well. With love and patience he will soon be able to move his arm again.

I thank each of you for the kind comments you have left, it is so important to know you care.

Thanks for all the  encouraging,  lovely and friendly emails you’ve sent me,  for the beautiful messages and pictures,  they touched my heart and made me smile with a silent tear that insisted to drop…Heartfelt thanks, dear friends.


I hardly had the time to enjoy some moments in the garden. Everything is growing wildly!…

I think I’d better say, with its “own” charm. I prefer to look only at the flowers, they are a real joy for the eyes, like this Fuchsia. I love its bright color:



Let me introduce you to “Mozart”, these lovely little pink roses. They burst with color and growth in the garden! You just have to watch out for its thorns, they really hurt!


Our cherry tree,  the only one we have and love.


The first cherries,  I love its red color!


Dear red cherry,  I’m in love with you!



Last Friday I sent a little parcel to my Pincushion Swap Partner.

I guess one can see that the red color caught me…Fortunately it is one of her favorite colors, too, so I hope she will like this little house pincushion I made for her:


When you lift the roof you have place for pins:


And the other side you have place for your sewing needles:


Here are some of the things I’ve sent her, the rest I hope she will show on her blog!


Summer vacations are about to begin.

I hope I will find some time to visit you more often and maybe I will also find time (between appointments and chores …) to go to my sewing room and  finish some projects ( or start new ones ?!..).  We will see…

Blessings to all of you!

Wishing you a lovely week,
