The Snowflower Diaries

Recently I discovered the Snowflower Diaries blog and patterns. I must have been one of the last cross stitchers on earth to discover them, because apparently thousends of people have already joined the Snowflower Diaries Joyful World stitch-along, and I must say, I'm tempted to join in too! They are such lovely patterns, and they are all free too. On the Snowflower Diaries blog you will find many other wonderful free patterns, I have downloaded a whole bunch of them and there are many that I definitely want to stitch some time. I also loved the Viva la Frida pattern, and I bought this through Etsy. Frida arrived last week, and look, Elise came along too! I am really looking forward to stitching both of these patterns.

Right now I'm still working on Afternoon Tea.
This is what it looked like last time

Handwerkbeurs Zwolle

Today I visited the Handwerkbeurs Zwolle and I spent a very pleasant couple of hours there. 
At the Draadkracht booth they had a nice Steps on display (this one is made out of cotton and bamboo).

 And this is what I came home with:
Today was the first day of the Handwerkbeurs, Sunday will be the last day.
