May 2018_FNSI and TUSAL report....

Okay, I have to admit I am rather behind on my blogging these past couple of weeks and I am not going to bore you with the usual reasons excuses because they are the same old, same old.....

Rather, I am hoping to inundate you with a flurry of posts this weekend about all sorts of things; from stitching to house building to my travels to schools around Victoria - fingers crossed that you don't get too bored!

Let us start with Friday Night Sew In and my May TUSAL report....

FNSI first:

Click on the logo below to find out all about FNSI.


This Friday I picked up a BAP, "Spaziergang durch unser Dorf"or "Walk through our Village" by UB Design. (Apologies to any German-speaking readers, this is the translation that Google Translate gave me).

This is where I was up to when I picked it up on Friday...



... and here is my Friday progress...  



... and this is what it will look like one day!!!!!


I do have a favour to ask of any of you who speak German.  The instructions for this design is entirely in German (which I do not know) which is fine for the cross stitch part but for the back stitch I am all at sea as to what is what!  So, my favour is this, would any of you be willing to translate the instruction page for me if I email it to you?  I would be most grateful.

If you would like to see what everyone else stitched on for FNSI, please click here.

Now for my TUSAL report for May.....

If you are wondering what on earth I am talking about, please click on the pic below.


Here are my ORTs for the month - home ORTs on the left and travel ORTs on the right.


... and here is my YTD.


If you are curious, the large plate behind my ORTs is an original Pasta serving bowl that belonged to TraderVic's grandparents, and we believe that it was handed down to them - so it possibly is almost a hundred years old.  There is a companion green one, which I will show you next month.  When we were in Sicily at Christmastime, I saw very similar bowls for sale in the shops at Catalgirone, a town which is renowned for its ceramics.

If you want to see the TUSAL reports of others you can find them here and here.


hugs, 

P.S. As always, you can check out more of my stitching projects at any of these other of my blogs that I update weekly (usually, fingers crossed)...




P.P.S. I am having ANOTHER Girl's Nest Giveaway (#6), click on the pic below if you would like to enter.  Closes May 31st.

I'm so glad you included information on that beautiful pasta bowl - what a special heirloom! Home orts, travel orts - you've done a good amount of stitching this month, and the red house you're "building" on the BAP is looking very good.

Great progress on your cross stitch.
Interesting info on your bowl...

Your cross stitch project is coming along beautifully. Can't help you with the German translation though ...
Lovely work on your stitched house, rather quicker than the bricks 'n' mortar house!
The whole Village is lovely, looking forward to seeing it build up.
