Introduction from Hungary

Dear Ladies,

This is my first post here and my first SAL with Chookyblue and Susan!

My name is Maja, I am from Budapest, capital of Hungary, Mid-Eastern Europe.  I have been around this SAL blog for years, but never arrived in time to be able to sign up, but this new year's eve, I kept my wand at the ready;-)

I am a cross stitch designer, I blog at www.thesnowflowerdiaries.blogspot.hu  I began this guilty pleasure only in 2011, but I have been sewing since childhood, I am also addicted to fabrics, threads, scissors and buttons, chocolate and hooked nosed Severus Snape:-)  

I have three small children I love very much and a law office.

I would not dare to risk the feeling of Chookyblue's whip on my poor back months before the bikini season hits Europe, so I had finished the homework for January, stitching the free pattern from Anni Downs with good, old DMC am sewing a wallhanging.

I love Anni's works and style, I am so happy to be here with you!:-) I had ordered my pattern and going to a secret fabric hunt on Tuesday, woohoo:-)


Greetings from Hungary,

Maja
