So I started it on july 31st and finished today, september 29 th!!! It took me only 2 months to complete but it feels more than that. Now I need to wash it (I've never washed any pieces before ... ) I'm so afraid of messing the whole piece ...
I could have finished a little earlier but I took a small break from it and I started my mexican Bolly the bear by Lanarte (fall 2007 collection) Well, sometimes breaks are necessary So here are my progress pictures of the mexican bear:
Started: september 27 th 2007.
We can't really tell but I am stitching it on a 28 count goldspinner lugana by Silkweaver. It really looks nice: it's a dark yellow. As you can tell, I'm making very good progress because his belly is almost finished I can't not believe how fast I'm going on that one !!! It's nice to relax on a small project. It's also funny because I can say: I'm almost finished I want to finished that one and then start the little mouse.
My printer is still not working well... I tried to reinstall it but when I'm done, I am missing an important component: the one that allow you to save the scan image on the computer ... I sent an email to HP and will wait for their answer ...
So now, let's dance

Emma got her violin class this morning and she did what I call "her lazy butt" She took her time to take her violin and was not very cooperative with her nice and patient teacher Let's make it clear : I did NOT choose her instrument (the sound of a violin played by a young learner can be ... how should I say ... nerve wrecking? I would have prefered she pick the piano (my favorite instrument ) Anyway, since she chose that instrument, I expect her to make an effort to pratice regurlarly !!!
Oh! oh! a storm is coming so I'm going to shut down the computer and stitch!
Have a good night

I didn't stitch last night: I was too tired after going to bed very late for 2 nights in a row. Today, I'm going to stitch the dove above the little boy. Then, I'll do all the finishing (including the boy's wing that is driving crasy ...) And I'll be free from the Dimensions kit ...
So you may wonder what is going to be my next project It should be that one :
Fall let's us now it has really started: it's raining a lot. That doesn't make me want to go out but I saw a sofa cover for only 35 €uros in one ad so I need to go and check that out. I don't know if I mentioned it before but my sofa has a hole on one side and I'm tired of seeing it everyday. (I'm also afraid it's going to get larger and larger with time ... )
