Today was the annual summer party of my former workplace. The motto was Brazil because of the WM. We watched the game, there were cocktails and cigars and some yummy food and even some Samba dancers.
I was a bit boring with my clothes because I had the little one with me in the carrier, but fortunately I had some nice earrings, a colorful headscarf and a hairflower.
The little one behaved himself well. Only after three hours it was all too much and we had to go home. I think he especially liked the dancers.

The idea is to answer some questions and then tag three other bloggers to answer them too. So here we go:
What are you working on?
I have a lot of ideas for blog posts, but don't get around to write them. I even have photos for some of them. I really don't know what hinders me than my own laziness.
And please don't get me started on my sewing and embroidery. I think I have more UFOs here than I can remember. Which does not hinder me to start new projects or buy new fabrics. Oops!
But all in all it could be worse. Even with the little one I got around to make some things which are waiting to be shown on the blog.
And I finished a book last weekend.
How does your work differ from others in its genre?
Why do you write/create what you do?
How does your writing/creating process work?

The team of &Stitches organized a stitch swap and of course I had to participate. My swap partner Teresa (Daisies for Violet) is from the USA and she told me that New York is her favorite city. So I stitched her the skyline of New York. I am very proud of this work, because it is my first embroidery I did without a pattern. I simply searched for a skyline at Google and then changed it a bit to my needs. It took quite a while to finish this, but it was also much fun, especially towards the end, when all came together.
My swap partner send me this amazing embroidery:
It looks so neat and pretty. I still have to learn a lot about embroidery. Thank you so much Teresa!
Fun thing is, that Teresa has a son almost the same age as the little one. I hope we can stay in contact and exchange some experiences. It is so nice to meet other moms from all over the world.
