On the stitching front. I think I made great progress on the little boy. I made one of his wing (the smallest of course ) and I decided to stitch the white all around the large wing. I even added the backstitches because othrwise we don't see anything !!! I am struggling with the purple in the middle because I have to use one strand of purple but with one symbol, it's a full cross stitch and with another one, it's a half point ... And both are mixed !!! enough to drive you crazy I took my photo with my digital camera because the design is now really too big to fit completly in the scanner. Click to enlarge if you want to see it .
I hate the painters They were the ones who played with the drill Esteban woke up screaming when they started breaking something above his bedroom with the drill. So I spent the next 25 minutes with my hands on his ears he was so scared ... Poor boy: he slept only 1 hour and the fever medecine is not working yet ... If Steb was fine, I would have left but I can't take him out with fever.
