Greetings from Finland


Hello my Dear Stitching Friends
new and old ones;)

My name is Satu
and I live in FINLAND. YES, in the same country, where Santa Claus lives;)
Atleast we, finnish people thought so...
I wrote a letter last Christmas to SC and wished Tis the Season - booklet as a present.
And I got!;)

I did an experiment stitching with Noël. It's Atalie's hand-dyed embroidery thread. It looked nice... so I choosed the fabrics according by it.
My fabrics are - mainly - from Glace, which is Moda's 3 sisters range. There is also two brown fabrics from 'Folklorique' by Fig Tree Quilts. Cream fabric for the stitcheries is also Moda 3-sisters... but I don't remember the range now...

So I'm quite ready for a new challenge
WITH YOU!!!!
