She can see!!!!


Today is one of these days you wish you'd never got up. I had a quite stressing night. My baby boy has had fever since Saturday night and last night, it was really really high. So I decided to go to the hospital as I could not bring the fever down. The doctor gave him a medicine and looked for symptoms of something but could not find anything. She just told me that it is "normal" for children to have fever during 48 hours. So I just got back home with Noah and went back to bed. Do I have to tell you I could not sleep???? Anyway, this morning, it looks like he feels a bit better but he started coughing. So I called the doctor and... am still waiting....

Back to crossstitching? Yes, I have an update on my first maiden. As the title's stating it: she can see!!!! Here is a picture taken this morning:

I have to prepare the fabric for the upcoming "Sal de Noel". I'll probably get my sewing maching out this afternoon, if Noah is not feeling too bad.

Hope you are all doing well. I'll make a quick tour on your blogs to take some news.

Thanks for following my blog.

A new project

Hi dear friends,
Fall is close! It is getting quite cold already. Feels like summer is definitely over now! I hate cold weather. Maybe I should move to another place then huh! Well, that's life!!!! Gotta go on!

I am going to start a new project (again???). A Sal is being launched on Polka's blog and I am participating. Here is a picture of the project:

I choose the upper version. It's a Lilipoint. We are starting on october 1st. So this weekend, I will be preparing the fabric and get the missing colors.

Wow! Such a long time not blogging

Well. Where have I been? What have I been doing? Well, one thing is for sure: no blogging for a while.
I have been quite busy and had a few things to arrange. Now, everything is back to normal.

Latest news? Kids went back to school. Lynn likes it but she's already in this kind of attitude: "I did my homeworks Mommy. Nothing else to do" BUT if you check her agenda, there are some stuffs to do!!!! Oh well! That's life. Just an everyday struggle ;o)

Noah also started officially his first year of school. He went to school a bit last year, but just a few weeks. He's adorable (that's what the teacher says) and I can confirm he is ;o). I'm the mother right? hum hum. He loves it and is making good progress on language (he is a bit lazy on that).

Did I hear you say "cross stitch". Well, shame on me. I can't show you my Calendar Cats as they are back in their nice drawer. I had a long break with no cross stich at all. And I wanted to do something completely different. So I am now back on my Maidens of the Seasons (Mirabilia).

Here is a picture:

And other news: a few weeks ago, we had someone visiting the property. She decided to stay for an undefined period ;o). Here is Babou:
