Pierre is ok - pas de grippe ;) - Apparently, he's got a virus. VIRUS stands for unexplained fever and headache :)) Today, he seems fine even though he didn't want to eat his breakfast. What made feel ok also is that he just got a blood test to control his health. I always worry for him anyway... The doctor gave him a cough medecine and a nasal spray. Do you believe he made himself gag when I put the spray in his nose last night? :o I think I will end up giving him all the medecine in the toilet , just in case ;) lol

By the way, will you believe that yesterday, 10 people were connected on the blog at the same time (at 3.05 pm) I think it was 10 shy people :)) as I got no comments but I hope you do appreciate the blog shy people !!! :) Waow, I wish I would have seen that but I was too busy: cleaning? washing up the dishes? ironing? hum hum ... stitching? I am sure you can guess right ladies ;)

Pierre is sick. He has 104 F (or 40 C depending on where you live in the world) He has a headache and he's cold. I think he may have the flu but we'll take an appointment to the doctor tomorrow. Even though he seems fine, we always worry for him. Tonight I tried to give him a fever medecine. I mix it with fruit juice but there're always some tiny part of the powder that stay in the bottom of the glass. Yesterday, he almost made himself throw out and tonight he DID ... :( So I ended up giving him the child liquid form of the medecine !!! Imagine how much fun we had when we were giving him his medecine for his treatment for his leukemia...

As you can see I did a little bit more purple. I think I will end up dreaming of purple. I may even hate that color by the end of my cross stitch :)) And I am not done at all ...
Today, I also received 2 fabrics I got from an ebay seller. I was supposed to buy 32 ct evenweave and I got 2 linen fabrics so thin that I son't even know if you can really stitch on it... That really got me mad as money doesn't grow in my garden and I don't like wasting it. :( (also I don't like to stitch on linen ...)

Thanks for the one who wrote a comments !!! You make my blog ALIVE !!!
I am thinking about renewing my subscription to the Stoney Creek magazine. Until the past december, I used to get it to my home in France. I am now thinking about renewing my subscription and have it ship to my sister in law in Texas. She will then ship them to me when she will have 3 or 4 issues. It is a way to save money as it is very expensive to have it shipped to Europe.
This afternoon we are going to meet an english friend I met while teaching in a school in january. She may lend me english books for my kids.

Yes it is true: no picture today. It doesn't mean I haven't been stitching, it's just that I stitched the letter A, a butterfly next to the letter B and I started the grass under Eeyore with a flower on it. It will be hard to scan those details as they are not close to each others.
Today, I found the Royal Paris' phone number on the internet. I called them but the lady told me to write to the adress written on the kit. I asked her if it was possible to send an e-mail instead and I should receive my missing thread in a week or so... Great !!!
In the morning, enjoying my last hours of freedom (lol) I went to a fabric store that sell a few kits, mainly DMC and Vervaco. I saw the new Somebunny to love kit (the one with the bunny with a raincoat). I love the somebunny to love kits. But it costs 21 euros for a small kit with aida (I will change like always) and five threads. I don't think it is worth the money... :(
Kids are officially on vacation !

In that fabric and crafts store I also got the new DMC catalogue for free. They have a lot of new kits. They are more modern than before and they put linen fabric on a lot of kits now. I was specially excited when I saw that Valerie Enginger, my favorite designer, was a member of their creative staff but got very disappointed what she did for them. You see, she create very realistic design for a french cross stitch magazine : De fil en aiguille http://www.defilenaiguille.fr/ and for DMC, the designs look "very DMC". I'll try to scan you what she usually create and what we got in the catalogue. San is going to be happy: in the catalogue, you can see the full range of DMC Sarah Kay kits.

YOu can find the kit here : http://www.canevas.com/WD100AWP/WD100Awp.exe/CONNECT/WebMC
And you are lucky: it's on sale. It costs 22.50 Euros when me I pay in a store: 34 Euros. You can order through that store because it is very serious and they send the kits as soon as they get the money. If you want to order with them I can even help you with translation. They do ship in Germany (I checked before to give you the link) The kit is at the bottom of the page. I tried also to search the web for you and that's all I found. Hope it will be helpfull for you.
check this link : http://www.canevas.com/WEBMC_WEB/photosb/644317p.jpg I hope it will work better that the first link.
If not, just go to the left in "les broderies" then you get a menu on the top: you choose in "themes " : "personnages de BD then you chosse in collections : "Royal Paris." You should then get to the royal paris page !!!
If not, you also have this store: http://www.boutiquemodesettravaux.com/catalog/product_info.php4?products_id=6817 I never oredered with them.

Waow that's not that easy to get the picture where we want on blogger... Anyway. I don't know if I'll keep that kit or sell it later on. I got it for a cheap price on ebay.

For those who wonder what kit I am stitching; it is "Winnie and Lumpy" from Royal Paris.
I love having my neo counter on the right. It shows where people come from to visit the blog. People from China came to read my blog. Do they stitch in China? Probably ... That would be nice if people will leave a message .
I am going to go back to stitch while watching CSI New York.

Here you can see Roo with all the backstitching done. Isn't he cute and realistic looking? I will finish the half stitches later on.
I don't have a school for tomorrow but I don't think I will accept any job as my day care will be on strike on thrusday ( eh, this is France ....) and my mom can not take care of Esteban that day. Anyway, I have a lot of cleaning to do :( But I could stitch in the afternoon. YEAH !!!
