Leaf

I'm concentrating on the left part of the design now. It really change the whole look on the design to have some green. I'm planning on stitching all the left part now: there is more green and then it's a yellow flower The Yellow/peach flower is really beautiful: the colors are wonderful ! Even Emma loves it! (Well, she's not a cross stitch specialist, she's just my daughter but you know what we say about kids: they always say the truth - I'll take compliments from whoever it comes from )

Will you believe that I'm already thinking of what I want to stitch next? Having internet doesn't help being wise and reasonable. Yesterday my friend marie sent me a very tempting link Well, I did resist, I swear, for about ... three seconds See, Marie and I share a weakness for Lanarte ... And here I am, the proud owner of a new Lanarte kit : the Kiss Perfect with a hand dye fabric by the way ... I am now wondering if I should open her link in the future

Yesterday was sooooooooo long and so boring: rain all day, nothing to do (well, you know me, I can always stitch ) . For the kids is not nice to be in an appartment ...

By the way Karen , I think the ads come from one of my counter: I need to get rid of it and find an ads free one: any advice for a nice counter? What I love with counters, it's not to count the numbers of people but to see where they come from!

Hi thanks for your comment. If you right click on the box and then click on "show picture" it should come up for you. That is a very pretty design you are stitching. My first section was an emergency section. This one will be planned. xx

Your flowers are looking beautiful Chiloe.

Re the counter. I don't know about any that show the countries without adverts unless they are ones you pay for.

Since I wrote you that comment about my computer freezing, I've also blue screened twice while being on your blog. It's strange. My ad blocker really mustn't like your blog. The problem is, I do so I keep coming back because 'sometimes', like today, it seems to run ok for me. No freezes or blue screens yet.

PS Have you seen that Carol at Garden of Stitches is having a fabric sale??

Statcounter - www.statcounter.com is what I use.

It's free, and although it doesn't show you on your blog where your visitors come from, you can see who your visitors are in detail through the statcounter site itself.

Worth having a look at, I've used it for years now without having any problems with popup ads.

el verde de las hojas hace aun más bonito este trabajo :)
Yo también tengo el kit The Kiss de Lanarte, mi hermana lo vio bordado en una tienda de España y le encanto así que me recomendo comprarlo pues me dijo que es muuuco más bonito de lo que se ve en la foto del kit :)

Great progress Chiloe. Stitching is looking lovley. I had to look at the Lanarte site. Damn! More things to add to the wishlist.

I use blogpatrol for my counter. You can log in and it will tell you where people have come from and also what search questions people used that found your site. For some reason my blog comes up when people google "poo on walls" :grin:
