life's a journey

It was probably the wording on the pattern's stitchery which got my attention first of all,
"Life's a journey - take time to smell the flowers along the way!"
I think this so true. May be you need to be of a "certain age" to appreciate the importance and the meaning of those words. Anyway, I thought I would like to make this wall hanging for my DD's 40th birthday, which was yesterday. So this is my "secret project". I got the pattern in May, and with the holiday coming up, I had to get my skates on and get the stitchery ready to take with me to stitch on holiday. I chose brighter colours for my wall hanging.

And here it is, a present finished just in time.

For anyone interested in the pattern, it is by "House On The Hill" design company, for the link click here.


  1. Oh this is beautiful and stitched with such love.

    I am sure your daughter will love it,

  2. A very sweet stitchery and I love the applique and quilting of hearts.

  3. I love your colourful button flowers. It's a very pretty little wall hanging with a lovely message.

  4. It's adorable, and I love her hair. What is the name of the pattern, who is the designer and who makes it? I'd love to see it I could get similar patterns on our side of the pond.

  5. To je krásný dárek. A úžasný citát na něm vyšitý. Člověk si uvědomuje smysl těchto slov až od určitého věku. Před tím pořád někam spěchá - už aby se stalo tohle nebo už aby bylo toto - a najednou je mu 40 nebo 50 nebo i víc... Dceři i nám všem přeji hodně voňavých zastavení.

  6. What a wonderfull birthdaygift :-).
    Yes, I think you are so right. One need a certain age to remeber to take the time to smell the flowers along the road.
    Thank you for sharing all those great garden and flower photos. Love them.

  7. That is absolutely lovely. Your daughter is very lucky to have a Mum like you.

  8. Gorgeous work, Radka. The sentiment is indeed very true. Your daughter would have been delighted with this gift, I am sure. Regards Di.

  9. Beautiful work Radka - love the bright colours.

  10. Beautiful stitchery Radka so pretty and lovely wording, how true life is a journey.Cute little button flowers and love hearts make a perfect daughter gift stitched with love.

  11. So, so pretty Radka, and made for a special purpose. I am sure it will take pride of place in your daughter's home. Happy birthday to her, and thank you for pointing out such a lovely saying, so true. We are all so lucky to have such special friends in our life's journey, friends who share our interests. Cheers.

  12. I love this and of course your daughter will do so also.
    What colours and stitcheries!
    Have a nice day!
    Hugs Gudrun
