Stash !!!

Today, I got the kit I ordered the day of my birthday:



I even love the little picture on the lower right part of the kit. I scanned a close up of the design so that you can see all the details !!! Isn't it cute? I may not stitch the numbers as they did it. On the other Winnie (click if you don't remember) , the letters looked much better with one color.



I don't know when I'll stitch it but it was sooooooooo cute, I just had to have it! (I know that you know that feeling ) And it's not my fault if the catalog arrived the day of my birthday I think it's smaller than the other Winnie (there is only one Lumpy ! which is good as they take forever to stitch !!!)


I tried to be a good girl and stick to my (lovely ) vase. I mainly stitched some white (I leave it to the end but I still have to stitch it ... ) When the white will be done, I think I'll have the feeling I'm almost done (not quite unfortunately !!!)

Thanks for sharing your stories about kids' eating habits. I don't think the appoitment with the nutrionist will be to make him eat a heathlier diet (meaning eating vegetables and fruits) It will be more to see if he has all the vitamins he needs to grow (as he's not very tall) We've been dealing with Pierre's eating problems since he started solid foods (he was about 6 months old. Being a first time mom far away from home, that was very unexpected and I probably didn't react the way I should have ... (The pediatrician didn't really help me. ) After struggling for about 18 months, I gave up and gave him what he could eat (mainly maccaroni and cheese ... ) Anyway, the nutritionist will tell us if Pierre needs supplements or not.

The kids I used to nanny for gave me a hard time about eating vegetables until I started doing unexpected things, like letting them eat raw baby carrots with a little bit of dip (usually ranch dressing) at dinner. They turned their noses up at cooked ones, but ate the baby ones with no problems (as well as strips of peppers, slices of cucumbers, etc.)

My sister-in-law says her kids will eat most anything if she gives them a little blue cheese or ranch dressing to "dip" it in.

Lovely Winnie the Pooh chart:)

You have been so busy on the vase of flowers this week. I haven't had the chance to visit your blog this week as my DH and I have been out and about Christmas shopping so I've been tired and just wanted to sit and stitch. Your vase of flowers is so beautiful and I'm amazed at how much you have stitched:)

Very nice addition to your stash. I was surprised at how much work Winnie the Pooh designs are - last Christmas I did the cross stitch squares for a WTP quilt.

Your vase is progressing well. Good on you for keeping going through all the boring white.
