Yes!!! Something to show

There you go!!!! I finally got something to show. I did manage to work on my Advent Calendar.

Here's the pic (sorry for the quality but I did yesterday night, just before going to sleep, so bad light)

I started from the middle, so that's why I only stitched a few dates, went on with a part of the border and up to the main part ;o)

Have a nice day, and of course, thanks a lot to all of you for your nice comments.

New Christmas project

Hello hello. Nope, no progress to show yet. Sorry.

I have put my Maiden aside for the moment (but not for long). The reason for this? A new start of course ;o). On "Le nuage des brodeuses", a new Sal has been launched but not a usual Sal. Actually, we just chose the project we want (just Christmas related) and as a goal: make good progresses on it, and if possible, even finish it (no kidding). No precise goals, so quite easy to follow.

So, to get all chances to make nice progress, I just decided that putting the Maiden aside would be the best solution and I'll get back to it right after this one.

Here is what I picked:

I started yesterday: had to prepare the floss first, which took a while, and then could set the first few stitches. Nothing "showable" for the moment, but maybe tonight as I have this afternoon off of work and free of "kids" stuff such as music classes and so on (teachers are ill).

Thanks a lot also to all of you for your nice comments. I am feeling a bit better. It's probably due to the change in seasons (always feeling down in those moments).

Have a nice day.

Yes, some progress to show....

... on my Maiden (not much, but still!) and on my SAL de Noël.

Here are the pictures:

Goal 2 is achieved!!! Hurray!!!

And, finally, going now in the bottom part for my Maiden:

And, I messed up the sewing part on my Burberry doggies. I'll have to start all over again, but it does not take long, so I'll set this on my to do list for this week-end ;o)

Don't have much to say today. I'm not feeling good, feeling down (have been feeling this way for a few days). Oh well, I'll feel better tomorrow.

Have a nice day.

A lil' something

Well, I don't have much progress to show today as Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays are crazy days at home, so not much time spent on my stitches.

BUT, I had time to stitch a little puppy. This is going to be a gift to a friend of mine... I should sew this either tonight or tomorrow, but I can already show you the stitching part of it. Here it is:

Is it just me?

Hi ladies (and gentlemen, of course;o),

Well, no update to show. I haven't had much time to cross-stich this week. Had quite much to do (driving my daughter to the music classes, dance classes, aikido classes, getting some food, cleaning the house, doing the laundry, going to the restaurant with some friends, celebrating my brother-in-law's birthday, going at my parents....). Well, just could relax yesterday night. So nothing worth a picture to show.

I'll make a quick tour on your blogs to keep me informed about what y'all have been up to lately.

Thanks for passing by and thanks a lot for your nice comments.

Some progress tomorrow probably.

Have a nice day.

Goal 1 achieved!


Well, could not post earlier: we're having internet problems at home. We can't get a stable connection. We don't know if it's our modem's fault or if it's in the line.

Anyway. Today, I can post my progress!!!

Goal 1 of the Sal de Noel is achieved. I finished this yesterday.

Here's the pic:

And now, my progress on my maiden:

Tonight, I'll be starting the second part (bottom), which should go quite fast as there is not much color changes.

Hope you all had a nice week-end.

SAL de Noel is starting today!!!!

Yes. Really excited about this new start.

Everything is ready. Check this out:

I made a little progress on my first Maiden but did not take any picture. I'll probably be working on my Lilipoint tonight but tomorrow might be the day for a picture of my progress ;o)

Thanks a lot for your visits and comments.

Have a nice day.
