New wip

Hey ladies,



Here's my current wip. This is a very well-known Lanarte! I've had this one for ages, but I finally decided to start it! A real pleasure to stitch, like all Lanarte, despite the many colors changes.



A pix?


Besides this, and after Annette's comments, I'll tell you a bit more about us. As you know, I had a baby boy a while ago. Well, now, Maël is 19 months old. My daughter will soon turn 11 and Noah has turned 5 in November. Life at home is everything but quiet! lol. I'm still working, so, as I've said before, it is not that easy to find time to stitch.


Thanks to those of you who are still reading me ;o)


Take care.

Still alive

Hello dear (lost???) stitching friends,

First of all, it is not too late to wish you all a very happy, healthy, joyful and wealthy 2012.

It's been ages since I last posted on my blog. Well, I must say that life with three kids is very busy and I don't have much time left for x-stitching. BUT, I still stitch!!!! Of course! Just a bit more slowly. Last week, I started a Lanarte kit I've had for years.

Here is the original:

I have no picture yet of my progress, but half of the bench is done as well as the mushroom right below the bench. Just started the squirrel...

Hope I'll soon get the chance to read you all again as much as I used to do.

xoxo

A nice view... and a huge thank you...



That's the view I had this morning when I arrived at the office. I just stopped and quickly took out my camera to take a picture.


So today started very well. I also got the package from Sharmila, I won her giveaway on her blog Stitching my way


And check out what I got:


A huuuuuuuuuge thank you to Sharmila. Everything is just perfect: the "L", the bag, the earrings, which I'll sure be wearing, the keyring (already with my housekeys) and the threads.
First time for me I ever received something from India. So, it's an honor for me Sharmila.

I hope I can be back soon to show you some progress on my Advent Calendar. I'm on the backstitching part of the main frame, and it takes FOR-EVER!!!! Anyway, I want it to be done!!!!

Take care of yourself.

Wishes for 2011 and resolutions

Dear readers,

First of all, I want to wish you all a very happy New Year. I hope this upcoming year will be full of happiness, joy, health, and welfare.

In September, I decided to work back on my UFO's. So, today, I set up a list of all the UFO's (or long time WIP's, call them what you want ;o)

And, I came up with this:

Advent Calendar - Dimensions
Maidens of the seasons I - Mirabilia
Maidens of the seasons II - Mirabilia
Fairy Flora - Mirabilia
Bouquet of roses - Thea Gouverneur
Japanese Serenity - DMC
Chocolate Party - DMC
Fish city - Stoney Creek
Beachcomber cottage - The Craft collection

So, that makes 9. My resolution for this year is to make good progress on these and hope to finish some of them. The Advent Calendar will be done, for sure. On a forum, a UFO day has been set up, which means we'll be working on one of our UFO every Thursday and show our progress on Fridays. I think I'll stick to the bouquet of roses. This is a hard one but so pretty that I want to finish it.

I'll also be starting a new project after my advent calendar. This is my reward for ending up a few UFO's since september. But, I haven't chosen yet.

I'll keep you posted about this.

Time for me to go.

Thanks a lot for passing by and reading me.

Have a nice day.

Hello ladies.... and gentlemen if any ;o)

I have not been very present lately. I'm a bit in a down mood for the moment. Probably due to the weather conditions. I am so tired, not feeling very well. Just staying home would be great for the moment (which is not good for me when I feel that way). So, in a word, feeling a bit depressed.


Anyway. Some news: Noah had the chicken pox a few weeks ago. He probably caught it at school. And, 10 days later, guess who got chicken pox too? Maël!!!! I was a bit scared as he's only 5 months old, but it went on better that I thought. I stayed at home with him for a few days, just to make sure he was alright. So, now, every little one is back to normal ;o)


Regarding the stitching part, I've been a bit lazy (probably due to my feeling down moment) but I caught up on my Cupcakes SAL. Here's the pic:

A close up:

My advent calendar? Well, still working on it... slowly, but still working on it ;o) Pictures later, when I got something "showable" ;o)

Hope you all have a wonderful "pre-christmas" time.

Have a nice day.

Spreading the word...

I am a big fan of Gorjuss Artwork.

My friend Chiloe sent me a link to their blog and I read quite much the sad situation they are going through. They need our support. So, have a look at their website, have a look at their blog.

And let's keep in mind we should always be thankful for being healthy.

All my positive thoughts and my support for Suzanne and her family.

Some progress

...on my Cupcakes SAL and on my Advent Calendar.

We had kind of a lazy week-end and so had no mojo for blogging BUT I had my mojo to stitch (and do some laundry too, even if we had a lazy week-end).
And, also, I won my very first giveaway at Stitching my way!!! I am soooooooooo happy! Just feeling like a little girl :o) Thanks a lot to you, mbroider

Now, wanna see some pictures?


I hope you all had a nice Halloween weekend.

Now, I'm going to check your blogs... Have a nice day.
