I'm trying to take my mind of things and cross stitching helps me a bit, thank gawd!
I know a lot of you are stitching things for Valentine. But in february you don't only have Valentine.... there's also The Carnival. I don't celebrate that and I haven't found many cross stitch designs that have a carnival feeling. So I decided to make a small festive ornament for those that are in a Carnival mood.
It has a German/Dutch text on "Alaaf", which is an expression that is traditionally used as a carnival greeting. It orgininated from a dialect spoken in Cologne (Germany). It means "elf" = 11 which is known as the fool's number.
Anyways, enough about the etymology, onwards with the cross stitches!
As always, it would be nice to receive some feedback from you all and it would be great to get pictures of your stitched masterpieces!
Thanks for the visit. See you all later!
