Boring, boring, boring ...

As expected, doing long lines of half points is really boring ! Especially, I mainly did dark brown lines ... If I was not close to finish, it will end up as an UFO . It also help that the design is small ! ( 5"X7" - 13X18 cm) I still have 2 lines above the last brown I did and it will be the highest I'll go! I hope you appreciate the update ! I didn't blog yesterday because the progress was barely visible.
Tell me if the picture is too small... Thanks! Edit: I thought the picture was too small, I put a bigger one !


Yesterday was dentist day for the kids. It was the first time for Emma and she was scared even though she saw Pierre in the dentist chair doing okay. No decay was found ! As they brush twice a day, that's what I was expected !!! The good thing about dentist in france is that I paid only 21 Euros (about 25 $ ) for the visit and I'll get everything back from the goverment. It's really good because in texas, I didn't have dental insurance and I was always afraid to have a problem in a tooth... Here people complain sometimes about their health insurance system: they just don't know how lucky they are to be able to go to the doctor without spending big bucks ... One of my brother in law didn't have the money to have dental work, so he paid to have the bad tooth removed ... very sad ...

You are almost at the end - this will not end up as an UFO - you can do it. :-)
Looking forward to seeing the Santa finished, it looks so wonderful.

I was the same doing all the blue background on Riley's photostitch. Have you seen how much half cross stitch there is on that one?

I think you're doing a great job and it wont be long now until it's finished. Well done!

I agree with Blue ... Keep going! By the way, what is this design called. I wouldn't mind stitching it myself.
