Yep, she made her move ....

While I was silent, this little girl didn't wait for me to tell her all about birds and bees

First, she grabbed his hands
Then she brought her head closer ...

To finally kiss the boy!

You'll notice, he doesn't look very distraught ... I even suspect him to somewhat appreciate the moment I also want to thank you for your nice and funny comments last time. They really made me smile or laugh


Yesterday was the first day of sale day!!! There is two seasons of sales in france: winter and summer. They both last one month. So I went out yesterday to try to get some clothes for the kids. I like to get it at 50 % I also checked the cross stitch online shops to see what goodies they have to offer but was rather disapointed ... I did find something for 2 of my PIF friends Can't tell you what of course but now THEY are going to think what it can be If you want to check the french web sites, click on the word " SOLDES " !!!


I don't have any cross stitch new year resolutions but like many of you, I have some health / weight related resolution. I want to loose weight. If you see my hidden ticker ( the one at the bottom of the blog ... ) , you'll see I have some weight to loose: minimum 5 kg (about 10 pounds ). Yesterday, when I tried some clothes I was desesperated ... They all fit so bad on me ... I bought 2 sweaters yesterday but it was really because I needed some. France is ruled by fashion: to look fine, you have to wear the clothes that are fashionable and the fashion for some time now is the close fitting clothes . With the 3 pregnancies , my weight is mainly around my belly ... so you can imagine how close fitting clothes can look on me IN Germany, at the base, I managed to buy Shape and Fitness magazines. In Texas I used to have a subscription to both. I always find them so motivating (with their success stories ) and full of tips on how to stay fit and live healthy. I always liked to excercice but now I have a bad knee so I have to be careful when I exercice. On monday, I started my program: mainly at home exercice. The one I know they work very well. I know I also need to add cardio. I am thinking on buying a DVD. Any suggestion? I don't want to be very skinny but I want to feel okay with the clothes I am wearing and be able to buy more fashionable clothes I am hoping to exercice 4 to 5 days a week !!! I did it this morning.


I scanned the head of my fairy so you can see a close up of what took me 3 times to stitch !!! Enjoy !

The bunnies are cute! As for exercise, have you tried yoga? It might help with the bad knee, and it's really great for strengthening your core muscles-believe me, I have the same problem with the belly area! I really any exercise with Denise Austin, and I know she has a lot of videos. Whatever you try, just enjoy doing it so you'll stick with it. Good luck!

If you have any kind of access to a pool, swimming or water aerobics would be easy on your knee. I don't know how hard it is to find an indoor pool though. Next time you see your doctor, ask about strength training exercises for your knee. Even a little improvement in that area can help. GOOD LUCK!!

Hey Chiloe,

your bunnies are adorable. What great WIP pic upon opening your blog.

Sorry i haven't been blogging much, I am really keeping things together for my trip, so I have not been able to do as much stitching as well, as you can see from my latest HD it hit 2008 before I could finish it LOL. I probably will try to keep up when i get back from visiting my home country, that will be around february, We'll see how much stitching I can do by then ehhehe. I managed to finish my The Swing and I really committed to it atleast before I leave.

Your fairy's face is truly gorgeous. =)And she came out beautifully.

me encanto la historia de los conejitos :)
Asi que tienes que bajar 5 kilos, bueno no es mucho seguro los bajas muy pronto. Yo estoy tambien a dieta, he logrado bajar 5 kilos en un mes y me faltan 5 mas :S creo que una rutina de cardio te ayudara a bajarlos rapidamente...suerte!

Hussy! Naw, she's very sweet. This is going to be adorable!

You are so smart to get on top of your extra pounds while you have "only" a few to lose. Let us know what you decide on for exercise.
