german embroidery inspiration

while scouring the internet for some embroidery inspiration today I found this beautiful old German stitching. The translation is "The bells of my home town gently call me back to the green valley".
I thought it was so beautiful and it made me long for a simpler time when there were green valleys and time for stitching. My grandmother was German, an avid stitcher, crafter, crocheter and quilter. I wish today I could sit with her, stitching and talking. What a nice day that would be. No iphone, tv or internet to distract us. Wouldn't that be wonderful?
Well, off for the long weekend...and some stitching on the back porch!

Happy Stitching everyone!!


  1. It's a lovely piece!

    And it's all too true that there isn't usually enough time to stitch - I rush my other "to-do's" so I can make more time. :)

  2. Me too! I am headed to Estes Park for the weekend, and I lined up all my projects on the bed last night--turns out I think I have too many (if there is such a thing) for the 20 hours we will be driving. huge bummer. I'll find the time, I know I will!
