January and November.


I finished  samplers  of January and November.
The one of November passes more than three years after I begin to make it.
I am glad to be able to finally complete it.
It is finally only a sampler of December.
I look forward to that all 12 months line up.

We took a walk through the  seashore yesterday.

Lumps of the concrete are put in the seaside near my house.
These are called pillbox or  [долговременная огневая точка].
They seemed to be made at time of World War II.
I pray for their not accomplishing a duty again.

Thank you for visiting my small blog.
Have a happy day.


  1. Well done for finishing your samplers, they look really nice!

  2. Beautiful stitching and beach walk.

    We saw a pillbox when visiting HI.

  3. bravo c'est vraiment magnifique,
    belle promenade
    bonne journée

  4. Loving your Prairie Schooler finishes. They look great and you must feel so proud to see them all hanging up. Love your ornaments for the tree too.

  5. aww super cute finishes and lovely walk..
    big hugs xx

  6. I love these pieces! Especially, the little foxes are my favorite "secret" parts hidden in the scene!

    I purchased January's chart just a few days ago! I have had November for a while, but never stitched it. Fortunately, I received the bottom portion (everything below the words) of it finished as the top of a hinged box for an Autumn exchange! It is my treasure. :D

    Oh, about foxes: I saw one trotting along the sidewalk in a neighboring town yesterday afternoon. We were traveling by car, so I was only able to see him for a moment as he flashed by, but oh! Such excitement! I really wanted to tell someone. Thank you for listening.

    It sounds like you have stitched all of these months except December--I did not know this about you. When you do have them all finished, I hope you will share a picture of all of them. It sounds amazing!

  7. Very nice samplers, Sana! And those pillbox things are interesting but also kind of eerie I think.

  8. Congrats on finishing Jan and Nov Sana. They turned out great. I need to get working on mine.


  9. Such beautiful samplers, Sana--I love them :)

  10. Love your beautiful samplers.

  11. Great work!
    I particularly like those beautiful frames.
    In my country you find many types of pill boxes; we call them "mad houses".
