The blue Attic is ...

...  2 years old !!! 

P1040205

*******

In March 2012, I started creating cross stitch patterns.

This one is special because it was the very first one I designed.

 At that time, I thought that there will probably

be a series on this theme (Little House On The Prairie)

and ...

oh my !!! I did not imagine that this theme would become so important ...

******

Sampler "I did my best"

P1030741

 The name "THE BLUE ATTIC" is a reference both to

my passion for early blues fabrics 

and  to my grandparents'attic

which was  Aladdin's cave for the little girl I was.

*****

THANKS to all the kind ladies I have met

since this great adventure started !!!

With Love , Nat

*****

Have a great WEEK! Thanks for stopping by

It is the sixth book in the Little House series.

The process is a bit long but quite simple

First I stain them with walnut ink, dry them with a hair dryer then

iron them and finally stamp them with my favorite wooden stamps !!!

“Every Christmas is better than the Christmas before ..."

As Laura matures, she concludes in On the Shores of Silver Lake that

 “Every Christmas is better than the Christmas before…

I guess it must be because I am growing up.” 

When Carrie asks her in These Happy Golden Years 

“Oh Laura!…Isn’t this the nicest Christmas!

Do Christmases get better all the time?”

Laura answers confidently “Yes, …They do.”
